Surviving

Life ain’t pleasant.

Being on constant alert as the smallest move I make will most certainly be misinterpreted. Being viewed from a camera and being recorded and questioned later about the smallest action I made is not a pleasant experience.

Knowing that over a thousand photos of my face has been taken to analyze what I was doing, and what was happening around me based on the reflection on the glass pane behind me which is at an off angle because of the placement of the camera is both disturbing and disheartening. Shadows reflected on the glass, and how my eyes moved are basis for deduction.

Numb.

I try my best to numb myself from the experience I am going through. It’s hard to distract myself.

I learned that we can control what is going on around us with how we react to it. It’s difficult, to be frank.

Am I being gaslighted or is this genuinely a forgetfulness thing? I frankly can’t say, but it’s good to err on the side of caution, and protect myself.

Each of us have something going through, and it would seem that this is my hell to live through.

If you’re here reading this, thanks. I hope you have a nice day.

Later.

I Got COVID

It seems I got luck on my side this time when I tested positive for COVID.

Our entire office was tested for COVID on August 3, 2022 when our boss’ test result returned that day with a positive result. I was not worried, but I was not thrilled of the thought, either. I had a slight sore throat that day, and there is a chance that I may have the virus.

An Unexpected Price to Pay

I recently had the wooden stairs at home replaced to concrete.

It had cracks at the support, and while it still functions, the risk of it collapsing gets higher as the days go on.

I had the wife handle the project as she is very meticulous with these home improvement projects.

The other day, (June 20), most of it is complete already. The tile work and painting were finished. We are just waiting for the railing, which according to the contractor, will still take some time.

Before the repair of the stairs were done, I had to move the TV (49″ smart tv) from the living room into our bedroom to protect it from the construction works, as it was placed in front of the stairway.

Wisdom to the Unwilling

It can be very exhausting giving wisdom to those not willing to learn from you. It’s like talking to a brick wall. Pointless.

I do not assume, nor claim to be very wise. Frankly, most of the time, I can be plain and stupid with my decision-making and thought processes. However, I believe that a good and proper discussion can lead to good results. If my knowledge, logic and reasoning stands true after much scrutiny, then it could be correct. If it collapses, then it may be false.

I received an e-mail today from Redbubble.com, and it was a disheartening one…

So Nice Soju – Green Grape or Grapefruit? (Philippine Soju)

During the holidays, while my wife grabbed her non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice, I took two soju off the shelf.

So Nice Soju Grapefruit flavor.

Last year, I also bought this as a last-minute decision. I was originally planning to try new flavors this time, but there were limited choices available at the store. There was the original unflavored one, green grape and grape fruit.
