First things first: the internet here is terrible
. I have to click on refresh at least two times for any page to work, which reminds me of the days when I used to buy prepaid internet and connect via dial-up, but even that might've better. However, I am still overjoyed because the internet back home barely exists at all, and 'terrible' is really an upgrade from what I've been experiencing.
So right now I'm typing in a dark corner inside my
room (my brother insists that its his, but it has the bathroom and hey, I called dibs!) in my dad's quarters in Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija. This isn't really our house, but its a place to stay as long as my dad remains assigned here.
Going here is like falling off the grid. There's barely any cellphone signal, and the internet -- well, I've already mentioned that. But I kind of like it, since its relaxing and very quiet and there are a lot of physical activities to do (like biking and mountain climbing), and you all know how I'm such an advocate of physical activity (
We're staying here for the weekend, and its kind of nice since my dad seems to be so happy about it. I think he really misses us since he's not with us everyday.
We're watching Van Helsing on HBO now and all I remember about this movie is how my friend Deo would copy the way Igor said "Gaaabrieeel~
". Now that line cracks me up and I think my family is judging me cause none of them get it.
The other day I made materials for the upcoming wedding of one of my childhood friends, Ate Jacqui. I made her a 'Save the date' video as well as the powerpoint template for her wedding mass.
As I was making these things, surrounding me was a world of chaos care of Juntsu, David, Nono, Jed and Mark (who is actually also a David, since he's Mark David, and we always call him David but it can get really confusing since there's another David, so let's refer to him as Mark).
They played some retarded rendition of poker where Nono would somehow keep winning (he was cheating), David would somehow never lose chips (he was next to the bank), Mark would just keep on losing (poor bb, he's the youngest), Juntsu would keep on trying to bet all-in (he needed to go home) while Jed tried to hail himself as the Poker King (he's just... a retard).
I couldn't concentrate on making anything because they were hilarious.
Somewhere in between David betting my USB stick in the pot and Juntsu firing Nerf bullets at me, I finished the video and the powerpoint.
This story really has no point except that I wanted to blog it cause I had a lot of fun, hahaha.
Have I mentioned its really quiet here?
The quiet is doing me some good, though, since I was able to write a bit today! I'll post anything I finish on autompneastra
, hopefully!). I hope you guys are still interested enough to comment and criticize something I write! Thank you ;___;
The typing I'm doing in this dark corner is mildly creeping me out...
