Crater Face

Got this from Bim‘s G+ post.

One of the most beautiful (and heatbreaking) videos I have ever seen.


Just when I was about to give up on Humanity…

Last week, I (stupidly) left my glasses and wallet on top of my locker. I was actually on the fence about it because I’m not sure if I really left it there or I put it inside the locker.

Later that night, I hurriedly checked inside my locker to see if I was just a little confused or I was just being a lazy dumbass. Apparently, I was a dumbass.

My things were gone. I checked the top of the locker, hoping for a miracle that people would’ve left my things there. Turns out, people don’t just leave wallets or glasses when they see them lying around (except for me).

I went to the guard, still praying to the Lord Almighty that someone with a golden heart turned over my things to them. After filing out several paperwork, and carefully construct detailed descriptions of my things (“Yung wallet ko? Brown tapos may pera!”), someone really did turn over my things to the guard’s station!

I grabbed my things, grabbed a pen, and wrote down the name of the person who returned my stuff. I thanked the guard and went up to the office hoping to find that helpful Samaritan and thank her properly. I was grinning fromĀ ear to ear and told my officemate what happened.

After telling the story animatedly to her, happily telling her how awesome this person is for surrendering my thingsĀ (hey, it’s still money) to the guard, my officemate calmly told me, “Ano ka ba, binalik nya lang yun kasi may CCTV dun and may na-fire na dati dahil hindi sinurrender yung gamit.”

My officemate, what a spirit crusher.

The Lazy Bibliophile

I’m the kind of person who’ve always loved books and reading (read: nerd). And even though I’m not a good writer or a technical book reviewer, I’ve always appreciated the written arts. I often wonder how some people have no inkling or drive to read. It feels so abnormal.

I’ve always admired writers that are able to masterfully put their thoughts into a blank sheet of paper and take us to other, unexplored places and experiences.

However, for someone who loves books and reading, I’m also notoriously lazy. Since I get bored easily, which I should really get checked (ADD?), I tend to read my books halfway and move on to a different activity like internet, DVDs, and sometimes even other books.

Since September is the International Literacy month, I’m going to make a stand against procrastination and go through some books that I’ve been meaning to buy (and read, of course), and I’m not going to make another book purchase unless I finish each and every one on this damn list.

May God have mercy on my soul.
