the home with an office feel

Even though I'm already at home, the home still feels like the office to me. Me and my husband are still working full-time. We still have to report and sit in front of our computers for eight hours a day; the only difference is that we are doing our jobs in the convenience of our home. If both of us have deadlines to meet, we even forget to talk to each other. It's funny because when he's not talking to me, I feel like sending him a message via YM even when our computers are only a few steps apart.

Somehow, the home still has that office feel. Occasionally, we would also receive business letters with some really attractive address stamps on them. My husband was even surprised how these companies learned about our home address. How did they know we have a credit card to begin with? Why would they offer to lend us such a large amount? Don't they know that we are not what we call traditional employees? The offers look really enticing but we both agreed to dismiss them in order to avoid being burdened with heavy debts later on. Anyway, we are still keeping those business letters. It feels really special to have our names on the envelopes!

Life's A Constant Change

This is what moving on is all about. Officemates are saying goodbye to one another. Thanks to our colleague Lloyd for this video. And thanks to Jose Mari Chan for songs like this. Got me teary-eyed. Goodbye, everyone. See you around the next bend.



Constant Change (by Jose Mari Chan)

We're on the road
We move from place to place
And oftentimes when I'm about to call it home
We'd have to move along
Life is a constant change...

The friends we know we meet along the way
Too soon the times we share form part of yesterday
'Cause life's a constant change
And nothing stays the same, oh no

Clouds that move across the skies
Are changing form before our very eyes

Why couldn't we keep time from movin' on?
Hold on to all the years before this moment's gone?
Why must we live the days at such a frightening pace?

We're all like clouds that move across the skies
And changing form before our very eyes

Have we outgrown our Peter Pans and wings?
We've simply grown too old for tales of knights and kings
'Cause life's a constant change
And nothing stays the same, oh no

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
