You should blog about it.
That was a suggestion I got from the office discussion. We were talking about my online shopping obsession. At this point, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that my tendencies for online purchases is here to stay. I just need to channel it to benefit my family more. Continue reading “”
Spent around an hour installing this calendar blackboard decal at the office. This is what we do when we avoid the real tasks at work. Continue reading “”
That’s how much I gained -in kilograms- compared with last month’s weigh in. That’s what you get when you attend a fiesta celebration and miss out on all the chances for rain-free runs.

Woke up to a dry, hot morning the weekend after I learned that I’ve finally secured tenure at the university. This level of heat keep would you off the bed. It’s not even 9am yet. I gave up trying to get some more sleep and started with the day’s tasks. I usually get out of bed at around noon. That’s what Saturdays are for – sleeping.

It’s another beginning. Another attempt. Hopefully, everything I set today would be part of the semester’s routine. I’ve also written several versions of this in my journal although not as many as the number of time I thought of this. As if thinking about it frequent enough would make it a reality. That’s a case for the unending hope that streams from within us. Bordering on delusion and yes, stupidity but I still consider having some hope as a good thing. Continue reading “goals for August”
It was definitely strong enough to make me use the bike and take the long way back to the apartment. My apartment is located a few meters aways from the office and it would take less than five minutes if I rode the bike from work to get back home.
