Pedestrian accidents August 27, 2008

When I am driving along Commonwealth Avenue, I am usually expecting that a few people would make a mad dash from the other side of the street to the isle of the road. They can actually challenge Usain Bolt and make a run for his money, because they can run 100m in 10 seconds or less, because unlike Usain Bolt, they do not run for the gold, but they run for their lives. That must be exciting.

I would say that if one of them gets run over by a vehicle, a bus maybe (insert some sick enjoyment out of the sight of that), I will blame the pedestrian. Not the bus. The pedestrian. Or maybe the moon?

I shall take it one day at a time.

A cheering sqaud of my inner voices(yes, there are several voices I hear in my head, and they do speak several languages, and in different accents as well), does help me cope. Things will be better.

Maiba lang. Found several photoblogs covering the Beijing Olympics, and they’re AHMAYZING! The pictures they are able to take are great, well, they get paid to do it, or some of them do, so it better be good. The blogs also contain pictures taken outside the Olympic fever. Some even had an encounter with China’s secret police, which could be a figment of his imagination.

I have also been able toi find videos of great olympic moment because Kotke.org. Yes, Mr. Kotke is a god when it comes to finding really cool stuff on the web. I found Oddee.com through his site too. The videos included some videos of Nadia Comaneci, Greg Louganis and Carl Lewis. Those videos remind were amazing to watch even at this time. I guess I should keep my Michael Phelps videos. Hehe. All of them.

And yeah, things will be better. Greg Louganis bumped his head several time on different occassions on the diving platform but he still won a lot of gold medal in the Olympics, so I know thinga will be better for me. In my own Olympic games.

Uncertainty August 18, 2008

Uncertainty looms these days. For the past few weeks I have been able to not think of what the future holds because of all the exams that I had to take. At those times, my immediate future were the results of those exams. Now that I have the long weekend to think, I do not know what will happen to me in the next days or weeks.

I am tired.

Dead tired.

Of almost everything.

School has been so taxing because of the internship. As much as I want to get geared up for the bar early by taking all these review subjects, OLA gets in the way. A hearing there, a pleading here and more of the cycle that is part of OLA. This does not include the travel to IBP or Shaw just to get my pleadings checked. I am learning a lot, but there are just too many things to do with the very little time I have.

Plus there’s the work part of my life. Work sucks. Big time. I avoid going to the office because our secretary plays the loudest hip-hop music you would like to hear at 8 am in the morning. No one wants to get their booty going that early, well maybe she does but it pisses me off. Haha.

The music is the least of my worries. I just do not enjoy what I do anymore. Or maybe I am not living up to the expectations of the higher ups. Or that maybe he-who-must-not-be-named just sucks. I will leave it that.

Then there’s the God thing. Damn cyclical life sucks. If I could carve the number of times I had been through this cycle, I would be as old as a redwood tree. I have no church friends, well I do, but I do not have a small group. I feel I am wasting away.
