The previous posting, which should have been uploaded on twitter, was about 5, rather 6 phases about my working self. I got an idea but didn’t have enough energy to write it down. It has been most laboring week in last two and half years. Let’s just put it that way. Anyway, the six phases are:
The best these days; it is really energy efficient and lasts long.
2. Compact Fluorescent
Best until very recently; still very energy efficient and lasts long enough.
Not compact. Performs OK still, but not up to the standard of today.
10% light, 90% heat. Enough said.
Maybe the brightest, but can’t last for the extend period of time because it get hot too much too fast. The filament is really fragile, even when it isn’t that extremely hot.
Filament is out, malfunction, power shortage… whatever.
I must tell that I have been in Phase 5, being on the verge of entering 6 for some time. Now I am breathing… just little better.
When I got the call, I just had a half bite of my so-called “dog-food” lunch in front of the computer. We have very nice habit of asking “are you OK to talk?” when calling somebody, especially for the business, but the problem is that I cannot really say I am not even if that is the case; it is not the fault of those who asking but my mantra is. It was only after 20 minutes or so after submitting the assignment, which I must admit that I passed the due because of my own misunderstanding. Anyway, I had nearly finished it when I was informed that I missed the due.
If I have to describe my job with one sentence, I would do it like “filling the paper with the words.” The point is that the words are not mere words. Rather, they are the reincarnations of my perspective. Therefore, my job is, at least I believe, to provide my perspective about the matter which should have been accumulated for a long enough period of time too take the least amount of price to get me going. In other words, I do not have any shame to offer that to get paid. You know I must.
So from time to time when I get frustrated when my client seems to be more interested in something not make the cut to fill the paper; it is some kind of collective ‘what-might-have-beens’ I decide not to put in with reason. In other words, I can’t seem to be trusted for whatever reason, and that is the most discouraging thing for me to get motivated. And that was why, that was why.
*FYI: The second one is not get paid, which has been happening ever so slightly alarming. Each client may owe very little but it has reached the level that cannot be ignored collectively.
