Today seemed to be a usual Saturday for me. Went to work, go home, stayed online… those stuff. I lead a boring life, you can tell. Until mom asked me to go some place to attend to some business with a phone company. On my way to SM North and back, I realized four things. Since the mall is just a hop away from our place via another mall Trinoma, I had time to think about some serious and not-so-serious matter.
First, our dear country is indeed overpopulated. Not that I only got to realize that now, but what I witnessed just an hour ago is a shouting proof. Anywhere I turn my head to, it’s just too crowded. No place is too wide, no mall is too big for Pinoys! This is actually one of the reason I don’t go out on a weekend, making me prefer a weekday off so that if ever I feel like going out, I can breathe and not worry on facing a very crowded area. Which brings me to think, our ever growing population is indeed, and still, alarming in its utmost extent. I actually Googled our current population, and guess what answer made my jaw dropped?! Just over 91million persons! My oh my! This is just one of the problems us Filipinos is facing up until now. Making the list grow even more: rice shortage, oil prices, poverty, unemployment.. Should I continue? Indeed, it is too much. Way, way too much.
Next, that one freakin’ month is quite long enough waiting time for a phone reconnection. This is the main reason why I suddenly went to a Service Center of a certain phone company (ok, I won’t name it). We had our landline disconnected more than a month ago due to some personal reasons, but later requested for a reconnection because it will just cost us even more should we change our phone plan (we need to replace the unit that will cost around Php 2,500). I then complied to the requirements, ID’s, and letter of request, and was told to wait for a week to have it reconnected. And man, it has been four effing weeks but…!! I called their hotline last week and they said that my request was not forwarded to them and they failed to report it! Dang, I was a bit aggravated earlier, especially when they asked me to write another letter of request because they don’t have it on record. And there I poured out all my sentiments and complaints, in the whole page of paper they gave me. The lady kept on apologizing, but it’s too late to apologize.. it’s too laaate! hahaha! She then promised to settle my concern in two to three days. I was like, “Yeah right, two to three days your face!”. Man, being a call center agent sure made my string of patience much shorter. Anyway, I just hope, madly hope, that this time our phone will get reconnected finally. This is too much!
Third, that I am spending more than I should. Yes! It’s a guilty pleasure, actually. Especially now that the twins’ dad is here, I don’t get to give my share for monthly expenses. Since last week, I have been buying stuff I just can’t help buying! Spending my hard earned moolah like there’s no tomorrow. Geez, someone crucify me! Just like earlier at Trinoma when there’s a DVD/CD sale, my hands suddenly had the itch to buy some. To spend, yet again. Whew! Good thing I got to save some money every pay-out with the help of our sort of Cooperative at work. I am really thankful for that. After this month, I promise to spend my money wisely! I implore the aid of Our Almighty God for that. Tsk tsk, this is, again, too much.
Finally, and this one’s a bit of an emotional thing for me because it regards my job, is that it seems that I’ve already reached the terminal point. For nearly four years, spent just like our regular scholastic years, I have been patient and not complaining about some stuff I need not to elaborate on. I had, indeed, done my part, yet and still, it seemed like it’s not enough for some consideration. Well, I maybe over reacting, but I am now on a state where I need to re-think and re-consider things in my life (aww shucks, someone stop me!). Anyway, I still hope and expect for the better. Whatever happens, I’d gladly face it and would really extract some golden gleanings from it. Now that’s a good way of looking at it.
Thoughts I’ve been keeping in my mind? Too much.
