Series of unfortunate events: What a comeback!
Date: December 21, 2021
There’s no denying that I have been absent on this platform for 3 days in a row. Actually, this was the first time that I get to absent this long. As much as I want to be active on this platform, however it’s like the odds are not in my favor. It’s not because I have a lot of things that need to be carried out every day but because of the unforeseen situations that I have no control over.
With that said, I am kind of upset of my performance this month considering that I am not the AlphaCron you used to know. Perhaps, you guys knew me as someone who is always active on this platform, someone who often creates a blog entry every day. Be that as it may, I can’t help myself but fail. I believe, failure has been attached to our system, and we can’t help but accept it and just conquer failures in life.
I fail to interact with you all here not because I am tired of reading your blogs but because I’ve been busy with my life as a student to the extent that I couldn’t balance my time here. This month has been a tough month for me deeming that I still haven’t passed my requirements in all of my subjects this semester. That’s why most of the time, I utilize my time dealing with my academic requirements even if it means I have to use my time on Read.Cash. Nevertheless, this is just temporary for once I'm completely done with my academics this semester, I will make sure to bring back the Alpha you once knew. Chour!
Anyways, for this blog entry I allow me to share with you why I was inactive for 3 days straight. And so, let's get started!
Due to typhoon Odette, our place had experienced having no signal. The lost of signal lasted for a span of 15 hours. Although the signal has returned at around 11 in the evening, however, the signal is way too weak to the extent that you cannot even see photos on Facebook. Without a doubt, I was not able to work on my academics and at the same time interact and create a blog because of the circumstance.
I thought the issue regarding on the signal has been resolved, however, it was still weak. I'm actually pissed at that time because the situation made me idle and unproductive. On one hand, what I did to not get myself bored is I took pictures of myself. After that, I listened all the saved songs on my Spotify app. On the other hand, the signal got stable around 9 pm, but I am no longer awake at that time because I slept early.
I woke up at 12 am with a feeling of discomfort, it is because our place had experienced a total blackout. My brother was supposed to have his work at 12:30, but he failed to work because the electricity has not returned sooner. Although I felt discomfort, good thing I was able to manage going back to sleep. On the contrary, I would have to say that this day was one of my worst days for the reason that although the signal was already stable at that time, but the issue now is the electricity. We had no electricity for almost 24 hours. Could you believe that? Without having a choice, I had to make a DIY lamp. It is made of rice, oil, and a match stick. I put the rice grains in the cup and put an enough amount of oil and then place the match stick vertically at the center.
Indeed, I had spent 3 days being unproductive. It was indeed a waste of time and energy. Like what I have said, it is like the odds were not in my favor of me during those times. Certainly, there are things that we have no control over, and so we have to be prepared at all times.
Anyways, that concludes my blog for today. 💕
