Hey before we get your minds thinking about other stuff, this is just going to be random things that I noticed in our place. It's about the people around us, could be about the people in your place too.

I am sharing this song that I am listening to while drafting this article.

I haven't played songs like this since I got pregnant and I don't usually play genres like this when Lil B is asleep.

Now, what got me playing this song, and while she's asleep? I'll tell you later.

I just want to say that we adults should show or be considerate to other people, to the people around us. But how do we do that? Let me share a few things that I do or practice (depending on the situation)

Be patient

They say patience is a virtue. That's true, but I admit that I lack that myself. I wasn't blessed with such, maybe I was asleep when the world spread patience. Hey, I try hard to be as patient as I can be. Let me call that extending my patience. Giving a little more time on something might help you know more about what's going on. So yes, be patient.

Value other people's time

Hey another thing that I lack, just kidding. Of course, I do value other people's time, it just depends on how urgent the matter is and who's time am I gonna respect/value before I put other people's time to waste.

Give the benefit of the doubt

Oh, I do this a lot. In other words 'once is a mistake, twice is a coincidence and thrice is a pattern. I usually apply this to new people that come into my life or the people I don't usually hang out with. This is very helpful in knowing them more like how you find a partner.

Be mindful of your surroundings

Don't be too selfish or self-centered. The world doesn't only revolve around you. You are not the center of the world, it's the core. Char! Anyway, one little or tiniest thing in the world may affect one's life.

Apologize

Saying 'SORRY' doesn't hurt you or kill you. Don't forget to admit that when you made a mistake or hurt someone. Always be kind to other people, this will make other people like you too.

Alright, now let me release little feelings that I can't express because I have no one to talk to.

Okay so, Lil B takes her afternoon sleep between 2 pm to 5 pm and sleeps for an hour or longer. In our apartment, we are staying on the first floor. Kids are allowed and most of the tenants on the first floor have babies. What I don't like is other people here are being so inconsiderate other people and I am getting irritated with the other tenants here. I've been here for almost three months and I think it's time that I can get to say what I observed by not judging them.

I always try to observe other tenants here just to know if they do things unintentionally or not.

Unit B tenant - We are staying in Unit C so Unit B is just beside ours. She's she heheheheh and as far as we observed she's living alone around the age of late 40s. My husband and I call her, 'the announcer'. Every morning around 6 or 7-ish she leaves her door open. So anything that goes around her unit can be seen or heard. She usually has phone calls and talks so loud up to the point that we would wake up. I didn't mind her playing old songs in the morning while her door is open because that's music, but her voice isn't. She always sounded like she was angry or fighting.

The unit above ours - we don't go upstairs but this guy who lives at the top of our unit keeps on dropping things and fell into our kitchen/service area. When my husband was still alone living here, he saw a plastic full of intestines or laman loob ng kung ano and rotting. Sometimes he drops his hangers and shirts too.

The unit on the 2nd floor with a newborn - when Lil B and I transferred here, it was the time that they had a newborn. Our kumpare stayed overnight here too and we watched the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. We haven't arranged our things so we put the Tv/computer on the window side. Our tv's speaker was broken and so we can't hear much but we still made sure to lower the volume because it was nighttime. Then suddenly, we received a text from the care take to lower the volume more because they just had a newborn. Which we did and decided to sleep. We call them 'the newborn family'.

The montero - my husband was pissed at the montero owner because he keeps on taking his parking spot. We had a delegated parking spot for each tenant and he keeps on occupying ours, maybe he doesn't know how to drive backward.

So recently, what got me pissed the other day was the Newborn family. Wait here's what the 1st floor looks like.

Taken from our window

As you can see, motorcycles park here. There's a reminder or notice for the tenants to turn on/off their motorcycles outside before going into the garage. The other day, there was a car that parked here or let's say parked and wait without turning the engine off. After 5 to 10 mins, my husband said 'someone's burning gasoline and our room gets smoky. I was pissed and decided to open the door and looked at the car. A few minutes after I looked at their car, the driver turned off the engine. After 2 mins or more it turned on again and saw a woman carrying a baby from upstairs. My husband told me that it was the black Hilux and the newborn family. Of course, we understand how hard it is to have a baby but shouldn't they be more considerate because they know that there are babies here?

2nd thing

I don't mind the sound of crying babies or playing kids BUT there is a borderline and the parents should at least advise the kids.

Just this afternoon, Lil B was sleeping. Then suddenly a kid from the other house comes to the caretaker's unit and plays with their son. There was another kid, a girl who was playing with the caretaker's son. They were playing inside their unit first. A little bit loud but the room can contain it. Then when the neighbor kid came in, they went to the garage and played out loud. The girl was even screaming maybe because of what they'd been doing but it went on for 5 mins or more. Damn, my Lil can wake up at any moment. Then I decided to play a rock song and turned up the volume a bit so it can cover the loudness to a little rock music so Lil can sleep a little bit more. It worked.

The Announcer annoys us the most. She still does it every single day except for the days that she wasn't home and I hope it stays that way. Char!

Please be kind or at least considerate to other people. That's what I tell my husband all the time because it gets on his nerves and I can see and feel it.

Me? I try and I have my little ways, but if I notice it in a pattern expect harsh words to come out of my mouth.

A small act of kindness is a big thing.

speaking of a small act of kindness, it feels good when you help someone, every time I saw someone walking on a long road while Im heading to work, I always stops and call them to hitch a ride with me to the town. small act of kindness but a simple thank you from them always makes my day

Nastress ako lol!

The unit above was once rented but they were the worst. Too noisy kahit anong oras tas lagi may party. At first un landlady ang iniinform namin tas nung di nakatiis kami na lagi umaakyat kinakatok sila. Buti six months lang sila.

Kaya eto ang choice namin noon kasi 3 units lang siya, 2 units lang actually ang for rent at sa may-ari un isa. Pero now na tinuloy na nila ang construction at dumadami na units, baka mapapalipat kami in the future. Ayoko kasi un ang daming units. Daming issues lol!

Being considerate and sensitive to other people s a must po, and it really matters to everyone.

Nakakainis naman ppo ang ganyang kasama sa paligid hays. Dapat po eh matutong makiramdam, mahirap din po kapag kayo lagi ang iintindi at mag-aadjust sakanila.

Yan ang kadalasan maging problema sis kasi hindi lahat may manners at mahirap e please ang tao. And worse kapag sinasaway tayo pa ang magiging masama. At alam natin na ang pasensya may hangganan din kaya much better talaga manirahan sa probinsya yung malayo ang kapitbahay.
