Fe - Let It Go
Work has made me become very depressed lately. I’m finding myself needing more and more quiet moments to calm me down. Time for another change?
Little Joy - Evaporar
This song is everything.
Why I don’t want to get a smartphone, despite everyone’s insistence.
I work in a social network company and people’s connection and overdependence on the internet and their smartphones are our livelihood. But sometimes, just sometimes, I think it shouldn’t.
“There are mornings when I finish work at 5 or 6 a.m and I take the taxi home. I sit there for an hour with my music looking at the surrounding. I was so tired but because I’m tired, I know that I did good that day, I know that I did my best. And then the sun came up and the light touches my skin. The taxi stops for the red light and for a brief moment, you can hear the birds because it’s morning, and it’s beautiful. That’s why everyday I ride a taxi home, because of moments like that. And if everyday, I can have just one moment like that, it’s enough for me to go on.”
- My friend, whom I admire so much, on how she copes with her work life. I try to work around my schedule to have dinner with her at least once every week now because I need my weekly dose of inspiration.
I have come to that point in my life when the decisions I make now will shape my future for the decades to come. Suddenly now offers are pouring in from every sources and I just don’t quite know what to do with them. This morning, the CEO of a multinational company called me up and asked to meet and talk about my possible future at his place. Another corporation contacted and wanted to train me to be their regional rep. Things are moving too fast and I don’t have the answer to any of their demands.
I am finally working at that dream job place where you get paid to do the things you love, but somehow, it’s not enough. I still feel the need for challenges when I wake up in the morning. There are still holes in my schedule that aren’t quite filled. And I still sense that droning sound of emptiness when the day’s done. I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t failed enough, and all of this has come too easily. I suddenly feel all my creative drive draining out of me and I don’t know how to stop it. What they say is all true. When the things that you love become work, they stop being the things that you love. I’m starting to think that I have chronic dissatisfaction.

The girl was as sweet as a candy cane and the guy was seriously cool and kind with having his photo taken. He was in an imperial mode of posing when I was shooting him which was both funny and awesome. What I love most about the outfit was how the patchwork on the knees of his pant matches with the one on his waistcoat. It creates a smooth rhythm through the entire look.
