There exist those days when everything just doesn’t seem to go the way I want it to be. I am not a supertitious person but the way things happened and are happening during that particular day, I might as well accept the fact that there are things in this world that can only be blamed to superstition. I always had an inkling premonition whenever one of such days will bother me – a lingering feeling inside of me that tells me that that day will be a really bad one and that the best course of action is for me to do nothing at all and just wade it out until the day ends. So far I have survived such days by doing that and I hope to do so in the future.

Today (technically yesterday) was a very good day mainly because I got to speak again to that special “someone” again. Now that I think of it, I have been in contact for almost everyday this week which is to say something that’s to my delight no matter how brief the conversation was.

My Meepo, managed to win all of my games in DotA. The last game I had before going to work was really challenging though. Against Lion, Nevermore and Rikimaru, my Meepo is virtually outclassed in the early to mid-game phase. I should’ve gotten my Mekanism by level 7 or 8 but because of the constant pressure during the early game, I only barely manage to make it before I had 2 clones. The only mistake that my enemy made was that they did not mantain the pressure and I managed to farm enough strength items to allow my clones to survive long for me to micro them out of safety. Our opponent rage quit later on much to my satisfaction.

Coincidences are such interesting things mainly because such encounters shows up in such an abrupt manner that it catches one completely off guard. Maybe my fascination for such incidents has a deeper root inside of me which could be a reason why I named my first blog ‘inane synchronicity’ to account for all the “interesting” coincidence that I seem to be experiencing back in the good old days of being a bumming college student. “Interesting” here is defined as experiences ranging from the comically stupid, the strangely amazing up to the downright serious.

I’ve had such experience last night just before I went to work. Of all the places and time to meet an old acquaintance, I met an old friend in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere while waiting for eternity for a jeepney ride to work. He was a close friend back in elementary school and, even though he only remembered me by face (though I have a different hairstyle now), I still remember his name much to my surprise. Got to thank my memory for that. Anyway, it was a nostalgic drive down my memory lane as I once again bathe myself with memories from the past, back to the time when I was a noisy little elementary kid who cared less about life and cared more about play and books. It’s been almost a decade since we last met and I now have more reason to believe that one’s personality is difficult to change because the way we interacted was like we just parted yesterday. I guess one of the realities of life is that growth is an irreversible process and sometime, somewhere you’ll inveitably bump into this thing called adolescence – the life of being a full grown adult where life is more than just eating and sleeping and eating some more. He was going to visit his son and for some complicated reason, the only way to do that is during the wee hours of the morning.

We parted ways in Junction since his son’s house is a little bit further down the jeepney’s route. That encounter made me realize how different my life was when I was a kid compared to how my life is going nowadays. Back then, the world was such a carefree place – all we need to worry about is going by our studying. Now, it’s full of hassle with problems popping up from all directions. December is just around the corner but I have yet to feel the jolly Yuletide feeling – all i can feel is the frigid coldness of the office air conditioning unit that is blowing superchilled air directly onto my station.

I guess I’m just frustrated
