What's happening?

I'm still on break from work. How long does it take to replace a damn video card? I need some freelance works to kill some time productively.

I've watched all 7 seasons of Buffy and read the season 8 comics. 2 more before the season ends and the next one will be out next month. I like Sarah Michelle Gellar. There's just something about her that attracts me.

I'm sleeping late again. I guess the lack of work made me lose motivation on sleeping early.

Here are two videos that will definitely make you smile.

I Likee

After hearing this on Leverage (cool US TV series), I googled for the lyrics but found this instead. And I was not the only one who looked for it after hearing it. It's not really a "song" though. Nice, isn't it?

Time, Money and Life

A friend of mine wrote on her blog about how she is getting old, maturing and how she wants to stay 22 forever. I feel the opposite. I spent most of life avoiding reality, just playing games, staring into space, pondering about things that really don't have answers. I feel like I've been 16 the whole time, and time just started moving again, and now I have a lot of catching up to do.

I need to start living my life. I don't know where this sudden rush of life came from but I'm guessing I'm bored of being bored. I'm going to start by focusing on my career as a graphic designer. I took a job to earn experience. I'm learning stuff, but I feel the learning curve is slow because I'm not stressed out by the work (although my eyes are). I know it's only been a week, but I want to "reach" 23 before the year ends.

Why am I in a hurry? Because I want to be filthy rich before I reach 30 ...or just financially stable so I can live life with less worries.

Sorry, I'm taken.

It's official. I'm no longer a bum. I start work tomorrow as a trainee, 2-month training period, Monday to Fridays, 9am to 6pm, with training allowance of P200 per day.

The past few weeks I've only been reading about logo design and branding. Time to focus on web design. :P

Today, 2pm - 4pm : Complete Waste of Time

"Job Offer Thu, Aug 20, 3PM. *******************************************. Pls reply to confirm." (*** company name and address)

So do I have a job? No.
Did I turn it down? No.
So what happened?

I went and arrived there at least 10 mins to 3pm., knocked on the door at least 5 times before someone answered, got interviewed again by an employee (he didn't know the job was already offered), asked to wait for the boss and after less than a minute was told the boss was in a meeting and won't be going back so they'll just contact me again.

I was not pissed. Annoyed but not mad. What annoyed me the most was when the employee said "Umalis kasi boss namin di na daw makapaghintay." (-_-) WHAT THE EF?

I felt tired on the way back home.

On the way down the stairs of the LRT station, I saw a group of cleaners huddled on one side of the stairs. (How many people does it take to clean a set of stairs? The answer is 4.) There was a divider and the sign "CAUTION: WET FLOOR". One the cleaners (gay) spoke (or more like announced) loudly , "Mas masarap pa ang lalake kesa sa merienda." then "Mas masarap pa ang lalake kesa sa tinapay." then another "Mas masarap pa ang lalake kesa sa tinapay." Was it an initiation for the United Gay LRT Janitors or was he promoting cannibalism? I'm not sure if they were all gay since I felt down and was only looking on the floor. I didn't even look up when it started.

Damn it. There's no ice cream to lighten my mood. :(
