Everything Happens for a Reason

For the first time I have shared my computer to someone who was a complete stranger to me. Below is a screenshot of my screen earlier. It’s a speed test site which I didn’t open myself but by someone whom I have only known a while ago and through Skype direct from Hongkong.

Nothing harm done, though. The lady on the other end simply did a technical check as part of the hiring process in relation to my application as an online English language teacher. It took her almost an hour to finish the checking. So, while waiting, I also took advantage of the time looking for audio technica headphones as it is one of the requirements when hired. However, my internet connection speed didn’t make it through the test. I was then¬† told that only DSL connections can get through.

I felt a bit sad over the fact that I can never get such type of connection from around here but on the other hand, I’m happy because I made it that far. I passed the initial phone interview as well as the language interview via Skype. If not for the technical side, I would have won the position.

Oh well… everything happens for a reason.

Week 4:Project 52 BLUE

So here’s the challenge for the week – something blue!

My colleagues at work and I made this headdress and forty nine others of it. It’ll be worn by our students who will be joining the “Sadsad sa Kadalanan”, a street dancing contest as one of the highlights during the annual celebration of our town’s Founding Anniversary. We have fifty participants. Only the male are going to wear the blue ones. All the rest will be wearing pink.

It’s a strenuous project and I’d say only those who have real patience can finish a piece.

Family Portrait: First of 2016

Who would not take family pictures on special occasions like Christmas and New Year? I bet almost everyone does. Isn’t it the reason why Facebook and all these social media sites exist? Or it could be the other way around. Though with or without Facebook or Instagram, still I make it a habit to take pictures on different occasions for keepsake purposes. I want to build memories each year – something to look back to as we grow old.

This is my family’s first picture for 2016. Labelled “There will always be the three of us” on my Facebook timeline. It was taken at home right after we attended the New Year’s Eve mass. It’s not perfectly captured and I don’t need it to be.

As long as I can I will never get tired of taking family pictures regardless of the occasion. I even do it with no reasons at all. Just as I won’t stop strumming my not so rogue guitar till I get to play a piece without looking at the chords.
