another ranting post

warning: if you're not in the mood for another ranting post, i suggest you skip this entry. go to another website. close the browser window altogether. if you're still with me, you have been warned.

tomorrow is supposed to be the press conference where the second quarter economic growth numbers will be announced, at the same place that it is supposed to be announced. it has been the practice as long as i can remember.

so i lazed around the day having finished what i usually do when this day comes--send out media advisory to all our contacts from the media (now you kinda have an idea what my job description really is), arrange for the ride to the venue, remind the staff about the statement we will be releasing and stuff.

imagine my shock when i got the call from our director (the direct superior is on official travel, and left me in charge of the said presscon) telling us that the said presscon has been moved to another venue. and to a venue that there is a major need for accreditations, security checks and stuff--all because the power-that-be wants to be in on the action?!?

thus, i rush to send out a correction on the advisory, got in touch with several people to let our media contacts in the venue, among other things.

now am still at the office waiting for more calls. and praying that everything will be all right.

lest we risk the major tongue-lashing of the said power-that-be.

this is the life of a government slave.

current status

who would believe that tado can actually summarize a part of what i really feel for the past few weeks? and he did that in a show different from where you will get those words of wisdom?

during an interview for the mtv vj hunt, he asked the quotation below to be translated by a fil-foreign aspirant:

"pinipili ko na lang na maging masaya dahil mahirap ipaliwanag kung bakit ako malungkot"

my addition: "pero dahil pagod na kong maging masaya, nagiging malungkot na lang ako kahit mahirap ipaliwanag".


for the past few days, i roller-coaster from being awfully happy and makulit to being the quiet and sad. there was one week that i refuse to talk in the office (except when spoken to), which actually had officemates wondering what's wrong.

maybe i'm too pissed off with being too much of a doormat. maybe i'm pissed off with too much unnecessary stuff to bother you at work and in school (heck, even at home!). maybe all i want to do is make somebody or something pay for how bad i feel.

in the words of charlie brown, aaauuughhhh!

i apologize for the nonsensical, effing post. just got to get thing out of my system.
