No aircon. Low power voltage. Electric fans. No electric fans at all. Sauna. More like it. I exist in a place where the aircon is nonexistent.
I’m supposed to rant how our office turned into hell ever since the power dropped to voltages where no airconditioner can operate but hey, this is Philippines and I am used to its summer temperatures. The office environment has lulled me to comforts and turned me into a temperature intolerant baby and so I’m whiny.
I must remember that some years ago, I used to endure four straight required summer classes in Ateneo, where all classrooms are not airconditioned classrooms (In fact, I can only recall the Bell 208 class and PLDT labs, A/V rooms, the other labs and the library as the airconditioned ones. Maybe I stayed too much in these buildings.) And back more years ago, I was living in Bicol, where temperatures are much more unforgiving than what’s here in Manila!
Hay, maybe I need not worry much about the office temperature and transfer the “concern” on my job.
I had a 2-hour and a 6.5-hour meeting yesterday. That pretty much covers my day of work and which explains why I was only able to reply now to the emails and comments I got.
Together with Fluffy and 2 others, I’ll be teaching MS PowerPoint to 3 classes of computer literacy programs. And the other work is about the upgrade of one of our current systems. My batchmates and I shall be leaving our posts in less than 6 months (yey!) and four of us were tasked to oversee the juniors.
Honestly, every amount of enthusiasm I feel with regards to the upcoming project is always coupled with an equal amount of apprehension. The problem with our organization is the organization itself… (I won’t tell, YET). We’ll never be sure if what we’re doing now will ever be used in the years to come.
Btw, we had a “team-building” activity last Tuesday. And a huge part of it was spent swimming, playing “pusoy-dos“, and riding a Six-by-Six truck.
