I Got Scammed. I Did Not Think This Could Happen To Me – But It Did

I got baited to a scam, and fed them my credit card details.

Everything happened so fast, I’m happy that I somehow began digging as soon as I hit the “Process Order” Button. However, it might be too late.

I’m Missing the Quarantine Already

Things are starting to get back to normal here. The community quarantine has been partially lifted. Almost everyone is allowed outside, except for those considered to be vulnerable – the minors and the retirees.

As a bit of a background, during the quarantine period, I have been part of the workforce allowed outside. We have work on a shifting schedule. One week I have work, one week I don’t. While it has been terrible to the routine – it was sort of relaxing.

As if One Crisis Was Not Enough

Hello everyone. How are you all doing in these trying times?

Things are slowly settling here in the Philippines. It would seem that by next week, strict quarantine controls will only be limited to a select few areas. Our city will probably go back to normal next week – well, at least the so called “new normal,” at the very least.

Just Checking In. Some Quarantine Stories

Hello everyone! How are you doing in these trying times? I hope you are still sane and able to keep yourselves safe – you know, while staying at home and always washing your hands…

There has been nothing much going on by my end of the world. Buying supplies has been difficult and exhausting – mainly because you have to buy in larger quantities, and often, the things you need to buy are not available due to problems in the supply chain. At least it was not as apocalyptic as I had initially thought. I mean, the canned goods are still untouched, and I am still able to procure some fresh produce.

What Have You Been Up To?

To help fight the spread of COVID, staying indoors, and away from human interaction is the best we normal human beings can do.

Our work has been on rotation running on a skeletal workforce, and last week was my scheduled off days.

On Community Lockdown

Hello everyone. How are you all doing?

To control the pandemic, our government declared a community lockdown. Cool. I can stay at home, yeah?

For an introvert that can spend hours at home, indoors, that is not a bad news. However, I still have to go to work this week, mainly because I am in the government sector, and my work deals with necessary documents and paper work. The good news is that I am not on the front lines, and that there is no documented infection in our city. The community lock-down is more of a preventive measure to curb the spread.

My Life is a Mess Right Now

Have you ever looked at the direction your life is in, and see what a big pile of stinking feces it is going? If not, I must applaud your life. Mine seems to be in a bit of a rut.

However, if yours seem to be in a terrible place at the moment, as well… Remember that what you are experiencing now, is just that – it is for now.

The mess that  you are in will only be up to a certain point. The troubles and hardships will pass.

How can you live life if everything seems to be so difficult? By doing the same thing that athletes, musicians, artists, or anyone with a high enough skill level manage to do anything that seems to difficult – by doing it everyday. Sooner or later, it will become easier, but only if you do it everyday.

Living is hard, yes? Then do it everyday. It will get easier.

I hope you have a nice day.

Thank you for reading.
