When you're about to take a shower and find out there's no water running from the tap?
When you forget to turn off the tap and go upstairs to work on something?
When you finally remember to check if the water supply is back?
When you step into ankle-deep water that has flooded the apartment's ground floor?
Well, you just have to clean up the mess. That's what.
Ironic, isn't it? When suddenly your schedule opens up and you've got nothing to do, you suddenly hit the panic button. What to do? What to do?
And you look at your to-do list and see that everything can be done tomorrow or the day after that and you really have a free day.
Somehow that realization doesn't make you jump for joy but leaves you standing there perplexed.
What to do? You don't know. Everything you wanted to do but didn't have time before you've suddenly forgotten. Oh yes, watch that movie or read that book or go to that resto and so on.
When you were busy with something, these things seemed tempting. Like playing hooky. But now they've lost their appeal. You want to do something different - like go on a road trip perhaps? Or spend the day at a beach?
And you keep thinking what would be a good plan. And before you know it the day is over.
Here comes the holiday break for Christmas and the New Year. It's a two-week break for those in academe, as school resumes in January 4, 2010 yet.
I plan to spend the holidays catching up on my recreational reading and watching movies while in the company of family and friends back in Leyte.
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year everyone!
Situation normal, all fucked up.
That's the best way to explain how the computerized registration system (CRS) went today as students queued up to accomplish their clearances, confirm their enlisted subjects, and have it approved by their faculty advisers so they could get their registrations forms, fill it out, pay at the cashiers, get their class cards, and hie off to the nearest hangout.
But then the computer system went kaput as students, staff, and faculty tried to connect to the database to no avail. Or if they could connect, it took the system three to four "Happy Birthday" songs before they could get to the page they wanted. And given the rather linear navigational design, they'd have to click on at the least three pages. That means at least a total of nine "Happy Birthdays."
Hope tomorrow they'll have fixed the glitches. Otherwise, I might just as well bring a guitar to strum while singing.
