Cinemas are finally allowed again in Metro Manila starting tomorrow. Only fully vaccinate can enter with a limit of 30% capacity. That's reasonable. I haven't read any report anywhere in the world linking an outbreak in cinemas so I think the risk is not as high as people feared because I've read some violent reactions with this. I understand the concern but how about giving the industry a chance to prove they can open safely too? Too many jobs lost already and having this industry finally opening up again will be a small but good help to all those who lost their jobs due to the closure to get it back again.

After a tiring commute because of rain and traffic, I got home facing stress. It's not a big issue but I had to deal with mood swings and really tested my patience. I almost lost it but was able to save a bigger problem in the end. It's so tough, I feel like giving up sometimes but I can't and won't do it. But I can't help feel this way each time I face a problem like this. Just tired and frustrated and sad and scared.

Work from home today and it was quite hectic because our globe prepaid WIFI is having technical issues so the Internet is slow. Good thing we recently bought a Smart-PLDT prepaid WIFI too for backup so my nephew's online classes was not interrupted. I'm the one using the Globe WIFI and while it was spotty around lunch it eventually got better but still not as fast as it used to be. It has been an issue for 3 days now. I hope this is just temporary thing. Working at home ain't easy because in the middle I do house errands like buying meds and some stuff needed at home. Work load is quite hectic because I have another task on hand which I ain't complaining because it will be added income. Life is so hard so you really gonna make things work. Since we recently had retrenchment news too so I'm just thankful I'm not part of it. But still sad those who will leave in the coming weeks. There are just 7K reported cases today and hopefully start of the downward trend please

Checked out what the kids are listening to these days and Meet Me At Our Spot grabbed me instantly at first listen! Apparently this song was released early 2020 but this live performance went viral on TikTok (which has become the hit generator of this era) and now the record label is now promoting it as official single now. The lady Willow, is Will Smith's daughter and had a hit novelty song Whip Your Hair when she was a child. What a total turnaround! Her voice is so good for alternative/rock genre!

The Cable TV industry is facing a lot of challenges these days so for our little channel to last this long is a blessing! I was not part of the channel's team from day one but I'm the longest at 9 years! I've learned a lot overseeing the channel's operations over the years. Thank you to all people I've worked with: the production assistants, video editors, producers, engineers, OJTs, our clients, our bosses, the pay TV operators and of course the viewers! Happy 10th anniversary TeleNovela Channel. We are seen on Sky Cable Ch. 81, Cignal Ch. 126, SatLite Ch. 92, Cignal Play Premium and various local cable operators nationwide 🙂

This afternoon I spent watching TV shows - Ghosts (US), The Other Two, The Conners, What We Do in the Shadows. All comedies because that's why I need right now. Light and easy to consume shows. I've also been watching documentaries on YouTube as of late Most if is about other countries, their issues and such. Maybe I just wanted an escape from this country's issues by finding out what's going in other countries.

The political talk very heated now on social media and hence I'm avoiding it. I'm just not in the proper mindset to deal with the stress of political talk right now. I wish I was eloquent enough to speak my mind in a way I could convince or at least make people ponder on their choices. But I'm not. I'm meek. I can get discouraged easily in heated talks. This time is tougher too so many aggressiveness and obnoxiousness, I can't deal with it, I get anxious and stress and I have enough stress in personal life to add that. But I'm definitely scared how social media can affect voting choices.

So on the last day of filing of those who want to run for office, there was a last minute "stunt", someone you didn't expect to run for the top position did and it honestly felt like a mockery. He was even a mess when being interviewed. But I'm sure some people found it funny. A lot of us suspect that this is just temporary, a placeholder for a substitution. Another stunt. Same playbook from the last time. Oh goodness, please not the same result too.

Finally someone I like has made a decision to run for top position at next year's election. A quick scan of my social media and I see there's a lot of support but I won't be confident because the opponents are vicious and they are loud. I will be anxious until the results are in. I'm trying to manage my expectations but I really want a change to happen next year. I'm nervously hopeful. So tired of obnoxiousness and rampant anomalies center and front. Oh Dear Lord please guide the country to the right path.

The filing of those who will run for the elections is making me so anxious! I'm just really scared those people will win again. You could feel how heavy their campaign on social media is, bot-like behavior now and of course they are clearly influencing the masses now. I overheard our van driver telling he would vote that person, I wish I was eloquent enough to speak out but I'm not. He is a very nice guy so you can't really judge their whole personality just because of this problematic politics. How many good-natured people could be influenced just like that? Oh Lord please enlighten the voting public, please.
