My 5 Most Memorable Moments at My Old Job in San Pedro

Episode 198 – Thursday, November 23rd, 2017 (7632)

Memorable Moments at WGM

Earlier this month, I finally got a new job somewhere in Pasay City where I worked, not only in designing, but also making printing collaterals as well. However, my new job is too far away from home, about 25 miles away, which is quite inconvenient because of long travel with heavy traffic (although I have some plans to rent a bedspace or a room), and my working schedule is 6 days per week which makes me so tired to work and getting rest for only one day. But I need a new job because of my future or else my life will be devastated forever! Oh well, I had been jobless for months before I finally found the new one which is far different from my old beloved job in San Pedro.

To be honest, I still can’t move on from my previous job in San Pedro, Laguna where I could stay there anytime, explore internet, watching sports via live streaming, use and chat on Facebook, and lots more which gave me a freedom to do anything at the workplace especially while waiting for a work task. Just imagine that, during the first months of 2017, I had worked for the longest time in San Pedro with lots of convenience, and then right now, I’m now working in a printing company in Pasay with some restrictions and restless jobs (imagine 6 working days!). From comfort to somewhat discomfort in the workplace though. Continue reading

Domination (Part 1)

Episode 196 – Saturday, November 18th, 2017 (7627)

domination part 1

While I’m writing for my next article/episode, I’m just thinking about using my laptop which has been used for almost 6 years. But there are some problems on my personal laptop where most of the buttons on the far right side don’t work anymore. That’s why I can’t use the left and the right button (especially when I use for design layout) as well as “delete” button. Also, the metal case near the VGA connector (on the upper left side of my laptop) is already opened up every time when I lift the screen monitor. Even though my laptop is already old (older than my love relationship, hehehe), I don’t have any enough money to repair or even to buy for a new one especially since I got already a new job after being jobless for months. I really hope to save more for my future needs.  And one more thing, my USB, the oldest one that I used for almost 7 years, has been already broken! Gosh, there are so many documents (particularly the pictures that I made for this blog) that are totally lost because of damned USB port that I hardly pulled out from the back of CPU (and this was not a virus). I had three USBs before, but my other one was also broken because of the same situation (USB port problems from a PC or laptop) while the other one was given to my former “love” for her school project few years ago. I still don’t know if she still uses it because we’re no longer lovers though or… it has also been gone or thrown as she already “forgets” me from her heart, I guess.

Anyway, thankfully it’s almost a cool season because just few days away before Christmas season. And I really hope my Christmas this year might be better compared to the past few years since Post-LDR Era, but this might not surpass my best Christmas ever which happened 5 years ago (in 2012). And speaking of this, I have some things that might not have been surpassed in my future life. Dominance is the meaning where most of my things and events once existed to the highest level throughout my past life. These will never be the same again and will never happen to surpass the dominance in the future (only if possible). Continue reading

What If… I’m 10 Years Younger in My Present Life?

Episode 195 – Tuesday, November 14th, 2017 (7623)

It has been a long, long weekend for me and others who work in the Metro because of ASEAN summit. But it might be boring for me because of the distractions at home. And right now, I’m not feeling well because of changing weather (it was stormy just last Thursday night but then suddenly it became sunny in the next day) and working conditions at my new job in Pasay where there’s too much cold inside the workplace while it’s so hot outside the building.

In my current age, I think I really need to set up my own life because I’m already old enough to build for my adulthood. Within early 30s, I suppose to be married with someone and having children for one happy family. However, because I have many financial and family problems, I’m still stuck living with my parents who are within 70s and my elder siblings whom one of them, my elder brother, is 15 years older than me (making a huge age gap between us). My only relative who has the closest age differential is my niece at her age of 23 (turning 24 this December). But others… well they’re not included in the millennial generation (because they’re more than 40 in their age). Continue reading

Betrayal

Episode 194 – Sunday, November 5th, 2017 (7614)

It’s already November, and finally I got a new job! Yehey! I had been jobless for 6 long months before, and hopefully this new opportunity will be forever and ever and no more bullying! Hahaha!

But 6 months ago, I felt being a “traitor” because I easily gave up from a job in Cabuyao after working for only one month. I simply blew it because of the situation that I didn’t really appreciate which was bullying. Yeah, I was bullied but in verbal form like teasing. And speaking of teasing, I still remember, when I was a young student in a deaf school, I felt I was betrayed by somebody because of simple teasing. These were my good deaf classmates that some had been with me since preparatory (way back 1994). I thought they had great respect to me because I was a consistent honor student back then (which lasted until 2004 or before I went to the United States for the exchange program). But when we’re in the third or fourth grade, I felt they changed even though they’re still my good deaf classmates for years until 2004. Continue reading

What If… My Best Memories From 2014 Still Exist Today?

Episode 193 – Tuesday, October 31st, 2017 (7609)

2014 still exist in 2017

Finally, after months of boredom, having distractions at home, and of course, being jobless, I already found a new job. Even though it’s too far from home (about 25 miles away) and I will have only one day of rest because of 6-day working week, I really need a job that might be perfect for my career even there’s a quite pressure unlike in my former beloved job in San Pedro. Ayyy… to be honest, I still can’t move on from the best memories and things that I had while I was working in San Pedro for three wonderful years including the year 2014 – my best year ever. (And then… I’m starting to cry… but I’m just kidding.)

Because I will be busy enough for 6 days on my new job which is located in Pasay City, I’m pretty sure that I will have a minimal time to write my new episodes on My Tent Journal in the future (hopefully it will reach its 200th episode before the end of this year). I’m sure I can’t do my writing (or typing, rather) inside the workplace or else I’ll be caught down, hehehe! And because I don’t have internet connections at home (although I can browse internet thru 4G data on my phone but most of the times it has weak signal), I usually rent a computer on a high-speed and more compatible internet café near the entrance of the subdivision, and I hate using a computer in other rentals because of obsolete OS, not compatible browser, and has slow internet. I think I will do for my Journal once per week depending on the stories that I can give from my mind (and my memory, too). Continue reading

Remembering My Saturday Afternoons

Episode 190 – Saturday, October 21st, 2017 (7599)

happy_saturday1487988216

In my present situation, I no longer have better things that I once had before. It’s because I don’t have a stable job, love life, a happy and healthy family, freedom, and of course, happiness. Almost every day, I rent a computer in the internet café to apply jobs online. Almost thrice a week, I wash the clothes for our family. And almost every time, I help my father to throw his urinal (he can’t do it alone due of his disability after suffering mild stroke two years ago) and my sister to rise up from her bed due of her illness (she might lose her stable job because of this). And almost every day, I have done nothing but to wait for some miracles in my life and also in my family as well.

Within 7 days of week, Saturday is one of few times that I have something “happy”. It is the time for me to have enough rest from household tasks or my “free time” only for the short time in my present life. Yeah, this is my present time. But 3-5 years ago, Saturday was so special for me especially the times when I had a better job and wonderful love life.

Insult

Episode 188 – Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 (7582)

I still remember when I was a young student at the Philippine School for the Deaf (PSD) many teachers and fellow students who were hard to spell my first name (by the way, my real name is just weird but unique). They couldn’t write my name because they said it was weird or foreign-like. They misspelled my name mostly. And also they couldn’t even pronounce it. I don’t understand why my family gave me a “weird” name when I was born. Why not usual names like John or Joseph or Matthew or… any Biblical names or whatsoever? Arghhh… But that’s already my real first name that I’ve used in my entire life. Tent Tertional is just my pen name or screen name, and I’m still using this for most of my writings, including this blog, for more than 20 years. Continue reading

From Crush to Enemy (?)

Episode 187 – Saturday, September 30th, 2017 (7578)

from crush to enemy

September almost ends, and I’m still jobless (and loveless)! Ayyy… but I’m just changing the topic. Before we’ll flip our calendars into October, this month is somewhat remembered as the “birth of my love life”. Really? I think so, but it has been 20 years since my love life was emerged into my life. Although all of the events about my love life during Deaf School Era (or Pre-2005 era) have been “erased” and no longer in my history books, my love life was started to grow 20 years ago when I had a crush… oh well, I don’t want to discuss this because it has been already “past” (my history has been rewritten). Technically, since 2005 (or Post-2005/Post-Deaf World Era), I had several pretty girls that became my crushes, either in school or in work. However, none of these became my girlfriend at all (except the one who was an unknown stranger that later became my textmate and my first-ever girlfriend). And the worst, some of them had some bad memories in my life which caused them into my “enemies”. What?

To be honest, some of my former crushes in post-2005 era are no longer my friends in the present because of complicated “past” (maybe there’s an episode that I wrote two years ago about regret that I had once considered them as part of my friendship.) It’s either they frustrated me in courtship (basted, I mean) or having bad memories that hurt my feelings. And coincidentally, all of them were born in the month of September or within the zodiac sign of Libra (which occurs between September 23 and October 23)! Oh my! In this episode, I just want to share about my former crushes turning into somewhat “enemies”. Continue reading

25 What Ifs That Might Change My Life Forever

Episode 186 – Wednesday, September 27th, 2017 (7575)

In my current situation, I feel unhappy because of many struggles and problems that I’ve faced right now. Health problems in my family have affected my life at home because of my eldest sister suffering her illness. Distractions are always there especially at home because of my elder brother who has been jobless for three years where his bedroom is “shared” my bedroom thru one door and of my parents. And I have been exhausted in waiting for some miracles in my life because until now I still have no job (for 5-6 months) and no girlfriend (for 27 months) at all. That’s why my life has been so boring right now because of these freaking problems making my happiness ruined.

But there are things that I might be thinking of. These situations might not happen if I supposed to live in a comfortable and happy life and the distractions won’t come. What if… all these things that already happened in my life didn’t happen at all? What if… I might not be the same as what I have been right now? And what if… these good and wonderful things that I had before still exist until now?

Since I have been living in the City of Santa Rosa, Laguna for 25 years (actually just 24 and I’ll explain it later on), I just want to share about 25 what ifs that might change my entire life forever. These might alter my present life in the fullest. Few of these are already discussed in my past episodes in this blog, but I now explain more alternate scenarios that might not be the same as what I have right now. Continue reading

Was 2014 The New 1997 of My New Era?

Episode 181 – Sunday, September 3rd, 2017 (7551)

2014

The year 2017 might not be another good year for me as last year (2016) because of many bad, tragic and unexpected incidents that happened most especially in my working career, in my finances, in my love life (I’m still single for two long years) and my family as well. Even though there are still four months remaining before the year 2018, it’s not enough to be considered this year as my good year. I’m still within the darker and worse times right now unlike three years ago.

Yeah, three years ago, my life was way, way better and more wonderful because I had lots of blessings and abundance. I had a better, nicer job that there’s a real convenience. I had a lovable girlfriend despite of having long distance relationship. I had a happy and healthy family despite that some misunderstandings. And of course, I had a great commitment with God as I continued to attend and to serve at The Feast. These best things made me and my life so wonderful and colorful. But these were already gone three years ago (except for my attendance and my service at The Feast), I totally miss the year with reminiscence to remember my past around few years ago particularly the year 2014.
