Sala Survivor and Other Stories

::Everybody is Watching::

Day 16. I'm still living in vast area of the sala, and I think it's starting to get to me. First off, there's absolutely no fricken' privacy. You can't satisfyingly pick your nose at your own leisure, you have to do it like an assassin: quick and subtle, accompanied sometimes with sharp stab of pain. Second, everybody is in control of your life. I want to sleep; I can't sleep because someone is watching "Shall We Dance" at full volume. Trying to sleep with "A rico mambo, a rico mambo yeah!" pounding in your brain is probably the 8th circle of Hell Dante never talked about. Most likely, even he knew the terrors of disco music.

Two more days. Well, at least that's what the carpenters tell me. Looking at my room and imagining how it will turn out gives me the boost to maintain sanity. For now, I'll try to sleep while "Videoke Challenge" is playing and someone is trying to sing "Only you" unsuccesfully. Imagine a cat on a blackboard. Yep, that's all I gotta say.

::Another Piece of Soul::

As people know, I am handling Sales and Purchasing. Well, the big boss decided to give me another one. Logistics. Now, Logistics is fun, I knew that during the days working at HCG at Cavite, but man alive, the problem is that our Logistics Dept is non-existent. Yep, you got it, I got to structure it from the ground up. And guess how many people are under me? NONE! Whoopeedo! Time to break out the barrel and think this one over. And of all the responsibilities that I carry, I'm still not getting thinner. Sucks.

::This and That::

Did a little sidebar configuring, so now it looks spiffy (at least to me, haven't yet check out all the kinks). I also added the Ongoing Projects, for my photo blog and story shorts. One Day, One Photo is all about pictures, which I'll try to update everyday. Again, I'm not aiming for the professional look, just practicing the theory of what I learned from books and advices from the web. The other one, 500 Word Project, is also another theory in practice. It won't be perfect, profound stories, more like trying to convey a scene using only 500 words or less. Both of these blogs forces me to use my skills on hand, and as they say that practice makes perfect, I'm aiming to perfect these skills. Will probably update and redefine both blogs once I finish the main one, since this coming Saturday is a special occasion. What occasion? You'll see.

::Time Flies Quickly::

Ronstadt left this afternoon for Manila to continue her Bar Review, and then taking up the Bar Exams this September. I'll be in Manila for the last week of that month, for support and a little vacation, so I'll finally get to play some games. A little WFB and a little W40k, perhaps some WM, and definitely some WoW.

God, I miss gaming.
