Friday free write
I am sitting here waiting for tasks to be done. Friday used to be a busy day for me. However, over the years, things have slowed down in terms of work and I have been having less and less tasks when Friday comes. I am still thankful though for then I can do chores that I can't do throughout the rest of the week because of lack of time or I am tired to do anything else. I do sit all day in front of the computer and it is more tiring than going for long walks. That's why I welcome distractions to get me away from the screen even for some minutes and then come back refreshed and ready to do my work.
Good thing there are platforms online now that we can divert our attention to when we are not busy and the best thing is to profit from those.
So, here goes my Friday ramblings.
My partner and together with some staff interviews applicants in their company from time to time. I can't help but listen though for even if I close the door to our room where I am at, I can still hear what my partner is saying. After the interview they would be discussing about the applicant. For whatever reason, it gave me anxiety and turns my mind to overdrive thinking about the past interviews that I have had. Where the interviewers did the same thing about me? Talking about me? Laughing about me? I had to divert my attention to something else to avoid going crazy.
Sometimes there are things that happened in the past that my mind would just remind me of or maybe there are triggers that I subconsciously did not notice which brought up such memories. It would be mostly embarrassing things which would make me wish I died right there and then when those things happened.
It's a relief fortunately that those memories don't linger that long. Why can't I remember better days? Happier days? It's the bad memories that are indelibly marked in my mind.
Now to another not so cheery thought.
I thought the issue with our electric cooperative is over only to find out that it's getting worse. Yes, the city may have won driving the attorney and her cohorts out of the city but they are making their move in the neighboring town. I did mention before that a certain individual tried to forcibly take over the management of the said cooperative but failed. She was deemed persona non grata but that did not deter her to continue her pursuit of power. She and her allies are causing such chaos in our province. My mom even joined the rally against her that was held yesterday in the state university. Again, that attorney and her party hid behind the police force. They held an assembly at the state university. The national agency that is trying to put her in position acknowledge her as the new general manager. Again, they are doing it by force. That is not how the cooperative works.
This is an issue that is really getting on my nerves. I hope the province can do something about this and not give in to such intimidation and corruption.
This is a developing issue so I have to read more about that.
Anyway, looking at the number of comments in my past few days here, I can see that it has doubled and tripled than the number of comments I have had before. It is indeed a sign that I am more active here than ever before. I have to admit though that I haven't been checking on my sponsorships for there is not much left in my earnings for sponsorships since what I earn here is being distributed to the articles and comments. When I have enough earnings to spread, then I will surely get on with that.
As most of you know, I'm still catching up with the comments in my articles from months ago. I do read your comments and reply if I have to so keep those comments coming and I will surely read them. Not as soon though lol!
What are your plans for the weekend? I have read that some have cold weather, some rainy and some like us can feel the warmth of the summer. This weekend will be the opening of the flower festival. I'm still not sure if I should go. It will surely draw a crowd and I don't want that. I haven't seen any schedule of activities just yet. I'll probably just update myself through social media. We'll see what this weekend brings.
Whatever your plans are, keep safe!
I am inspired by the number of comments and your reply to them. The commenting interface might be improved. The comments and the replies should be displayed with a threaded view. When I am not logged in, the view is better than the logged-in view!
