When your feeling down and blue and it seems like the whole world is crumbling down on you...

Lighten up by lighting up! Smoking's a good way to de-stress. Well, that's what smokers say. Sometimes I wish I smoked due to this certain benefit.

Tears of Joy?

I was in the process of reading two month's worth of egroup posts when I came across a post by a friend who I haven't heard from since forever. After reading this friend of mine's post, there were tears in my eyes. It dawned on me how much I love these guys (Oh yes Bugsy, I do love you so, so much) and how I super miss them. I miss each and every single one and I miss us, together as a group. And it sucks that it's so hard to gather all of us together, and it saddens me more to think that we are going to be even more dispersed globally in the coming years... Haaayyyy.

Preparing for our Lipa "Excursion"

Taking a break from packing for our three-day Lipa technical work-with. Which comes off to be more of an outing rather than work (with all the chips and booze preps, the "how many tennis rackets am I going to bring" lines, and the playing cards and poker sets committed). And, it has been confirmed that the factory has no curfew. Woohoo! Our rendezvous with the Cabuyao people will most likely be pushing through then. Tagaytay, here we come! Hahaha.

This is what you call a mix between business and pleasure. Kewl. :D

Great Thinker

With the many things that I had to think over in the recent past, the things that are figuratively shoved to me at this very present, and the many trepidations brought about fluctuations at this moment that affect the future, I should belong among the ranks of the world's great thinkers.

Aristotle, Machiavelli, Rosseau, here I come.

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock....

I'm waiting... (mala-Sonic the Hedgehog delivery, hehe).

Oh, never mind. I've already had my taste of emotional wellness today. I'll go for physical wellness tomorrow then. Hehehehe.

DISCLAIMER: Believe it or not, this isn't shameless plugging. I just find the title appropriate for this post. :D

Nowadays, I am kind of developing the habit of inviting people (old friends, ex-officemates, college orgmates, etc.) to coffee (which is actually kind of ironic because I don't drink coffee unless necessary, i.e. when about to fall asleep in the middle of afternoon training). I just want to catch up with how everbody's doing, what's going on in their lives, and so on and so forth. And so, my persistence paid off and I was able to schedule my first "coffee-mate meeting" this afternoon.

I was able to meet up with two college friends that I haven't seen since graduation -- Chrissi and Len-len. It was nice seeing them again after a long time. Our conversation made us realize how we've changed the past year and how different the worlds we are in right now are -- with both of them in the banking sector and myself in FMCG. But it's good to know that despite the industry barrier, our talks are still the same. Fun and kulit and of course, always with some unavoidable reference to our beloved School of Econ. Because I don't know, we all agreed that Econ contributed a lot to the way we are today -- the way we analyze things, how we think, how we perceive a problem. etc. And I can feel it is still very evident even though I ended up in a very non-Econ field. And, based on experience, it is a plus.

Coffee time was fun. I shall schedule more of them soon. :D
