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

the real shocker

"If you are weak in a crisis, you are weak indeed."--Proverbs 24:24

today came as a real shocker. i think i feel numb. i don't know what to feel. i had a premonition about this. but a premonition feels different than reality. yes, friends, if you've stumbled upon marie's latest blog, you would already have the idea that we're about to lose our jobs. hubby and the rest of our officemates are given 30 days' notice. call it retrenchment. i won't give the details but it has something to do with a new company owning the project we're working on. technically, they're still keeping me and two others but i don't know for how long, the rest has got to go. eventually, i may have to go, too.

now this is nothing new to me. i've had an experience like this a few years back, it was even quite more worse than this. i was so down and in denial at that time. we got ourselves wasted almost every night because we couldn't believe our company's closing down because we thought we were doing well. but it turned out that i was wrong. eventually, i had to move on.

today, i now realize we should learn to accept things as they are. there's no room for self-pity. we have a baby to raise someday. i am quite optimistic that things will get better for us soon. God knows what He is doing. this won't last very long.

if anyone is touched by this story, please get us a job hehehe. just trying to be funny amidst this difficult time.

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'...
