Since the last few posts was emotionally draining and down right depressing, I have been thinking of (and trying to do) stuff that could uplift my spirits. Not necessarily interesting or unique but at least it kept my mind off things. So lemme share my not so interesting story.
Coffee is my vice, everyone knows that. Yesterday, I thought I’d hang around the coffee shops and restaurants, fill my tummy with yummies and fuel my caffeine dependency. With my friend’s handi dandi notebook, wearing my pambahay trademark (honestly, who has to dress up just to have coffee alone?), I trudged along BF to look for hotspots, I came across a few but ack, I keep getting disconnected.
I got to Starbucks and for a span of 6 hours (WTF, I stayed there for 6 hours?) I had a chocolate chip cookie, a honey glazed donut, chugged down a tall mocha frappe, a cup of Cafe Verona and a Java Mocha Chip something, I forgot what that was called, the one with the banana. Hmmm they got good looking eye candies during the afternoon shift. Yeah I was busying myself watching other people while blog hopping (addict! addict!). What can I say, I looked like a very bored kid lounging in one of the arm chairs. Feeling like a student? Haha, as if.
But blech, the notebook started signaling me that the battery was getting low so I thought I’d call it quits and go home. On the way home, and mind you I was walking, the sky decided to opened up and let it rain. Heavy, really heavy. Great, I don’t have an umbrella.
The Computer Shop
I ran out of the rain and into a computer shop. Just what I need, more Internet temptation. I went online again just to lurk around the forums I frequent and read more email. Too bad there wasn’t Photoshop or ImageReady installed for me to work a bit.
The funny thing was the kids who were playing what I think was RAN(?) assembled themselves to play just beside me. A very loud girl on my left and a talkative boy on my right. How convenient.
“SAAN KA ULI?!”
“NASA LIKOD MO LANG AKO!!! TUMAKBO KA NA DUN SA BRAWLER!!!”
“ANDYAN! ANDYAN!! SA GILID OH!!”
“SI LOTUS!!! TULUNGAN NATIN!! ANIM KALABAN NA BRAWLER!!”
Add exclamation points if you must. Egad, they talk to each other as if they were on two separate mountains. I actually had to laugh! I can hear them clearly even if I was playing hard rock with my headset’s volume in almost full.
I didn’t stay long in the computer shop, just waited till the rain stopped a bit and finally went home.
As if it wasn’t enough, it rained again. Thankfully I was home already. I didn’t expect the rain since it was very sunny during the morning. The notebook is still alive, in the meantime, I felt like a newly born chick. Haaay basang sisiw.
Let’s talk about today. The Sun is up again. I wonder if it will rain..
Heck, I have an urge to go swimming. I don’t know why. Hahaha
But I swear I really want to. Subic? Pagudpod? Batangas? Laguna? Palawan?
*directed to anyone interested* Ano pare, swimming tayo! Kahit saan! Habang hindi pa regular ang ulan! Hahahay
And just to remind myself… and yung mga dapat makaalala haha
