What’s Your Status

The nature of my job allows me to have access to Yahoo Messenger. Real time communication is very important in my line of work. Before, I never even consider YM vital but because of my job, sometime having YM can be so irritating that I don’t want to log in on it. :p

Aside from chatting of course, YM has a cool feature that you can place your status on it. Statuses like, “LUNCH,” “MEETING,” “BRB,” are the usual things I placed. I also place my country assignment for a particular day, just to make sure that I will be chatting with the correct people. When days are lean, and chatting is not that much needed (which rarely happens), I place a status that are taken from a message that I received on my cp, a part of a lyrics of an earworm, a tweet from twitter (thanks to yahoo updates), or even a post from FB, basically I just place anything that I want to say on it. Here are some of my statuses, where to they came from, and why did I place it there.

*Remember me, Sweet Bravery! - Taken from Owl City’s To the Sky, I love the song and as of writing this, I am playing it over and over again. One of our tellers asks me, “Who is Sweet Bravery?” I can’t help but smiled when he ask me this, and when I’ve realized he’s serious, I explained it to him.

*Ang kabarkadang hindi marunong lumingon sa Pinagsamahan , Ay hindi pwedeng patagayin sa susunod na inuman. – A friend from Facebook gave me this, it’s funny, and when it’s funny, it will surely be my status.

* SM ka ba? You got it all for me eh. ÜI got this from a SMS. Yeah, it’s corny, but it made my day.

* Turn barbs into roses... – Gwyneth Paltrow said this on GLEE. She was talking to a bunch of hired hecklers trying to convince them to try changing the heckling to cheering.

* Sana may rewind ang totoong buhay. Or kahit Ctrl Z para mag Undo – Beckimon tweeted this. Unfortunately, there is none.

* Why would I hurt the ones I love? Why would I hurt you? If I can't be what he wants of me, what am I to do? –Tarzan - Another tweet. Something from Walt Disney Quotes. When I first read this, I know, this should be on my status right away. Let get emode!

* The only way to achieve the impossible is to believe it is possible. –Charles (Alice in Wonderland) – Another Walt Disney Quote. I don’t even know who Charles is and why he said this, but this one is cool. Everything seemed easy after I read this; this quote really means something.

I am still trying to remember what my previous statuses were, and I give up. Someone said that, what you say or write really reflects what type of person you are, and that is perfectly true.

Hey! It’s time to change my status to “Invisible to everyone.”

Look at Me, I’m Ranting!

Its four o clock and I am writing this one at my office PC, I will post it later because the site is blocked from where I am now. I’m now trying to kill time. I still have two more hours before my shift ends. Two more hours doing nothing, trying to be productive and making sure that everything has been accomplished before the two hours that I am trying to kill is gone.

Two hours is still long, though.

I don’t have to elaborate how tough working on grave yard shift is. Man, its tough! Aside from that fact that it is summer and thanks to climate change, the weather during the time that I am sleeping has not been that friendly, its painful being on this shift. Lately, I’ve been experiencing back pains and headaches due to lack of sleep. There were times that while I am on my way to Ortigas, my mind was still in dreamland, trying to make the most of a sweet dream knowing thatI have to work. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, I am just explaining myself. :P


One hour and 45 minutes to go. My eyelids are starting to give up, and the sad part is, I cannot give in. I just finished reading Adam Young’s blog entry for Taylor Swift. In a bit, I need to print certain things and create my turnovers for the morning shift. Lord, give me patience.

To be productive at this time of my shift, here are the things that I do:

- I try to read as many things as I can. Wikipedia is the only thing that our IT team cannot block; I’ve read everything from Paulo Coelho, to Sailor Moon, to Italian Culture, the British Monarchy, and right now, Adam Young and Owl City.

- Thanks to technology, Google Reader has now the capacity to incorporate your favorite blogs to your email; you will be able to read them while you’re at work.

- The new version of yahoo mail also provides you updates on your social networking sites. You will be able to read your friends’ updated status of Facebook and read the tweets of your favorite artists on Twitter, sweet right? Just be careful on posting things, though.

- I listen to the songs on my phone. My phone right now has 281 songs on it so it’s a big help.

- Since I don’t have a television on my Boarding House, I read the news at the office.

- Coffee and cigarettes has always been there to help me get thru the night.

- I eat, I talk with my office mates, and I chat via YM.

That was good. After writing that, I’ve realized that I am not wasting my time after all. :p

One hour and four minutes, argh, I really want to go home now. MY DEAR BED, SEE YOU IN AN HOUR AND 30.

Back To Blogging

The last post that I've written was made last 2009. Guess what, Its already 2011! Hahaha....

Two years. Whew! Now I understand why they keep on saying that time flies. Two years was way too fast that I already lost track of it.


Maybe time has something in it that when its already gone, you can't do anything about it.

I hope I will be able to maintain this blog this time, even though I still need to find out how to change its URL.
