Naisip ko lang

Ito ay kwento ng isang batang matigas ang ulo.
Nangarap, naghirap, bumuo ng mga plano.
Nagsimula sa baba, nagtyaga sa trabaho
Nagsunog ng kilay; puyat at pagod ay inilako.

Di pagmamayabang, may angking kagalingan
May tereng ang isip kung ano-ano ang napagbalingan
Pero ang di maatim ay ang sumunod sa lakaran
Iwanan ang nakagisnan, sa agos ay magpatianuran.

Sa pagdaan ng panahon, binantayan ang sariling pwesto.
Sa mga paanyayang umakyat di laging umaamo.
“Kayo na lang, masaya na ako dito
Di naman ako sasaya sa iyong mga pangako.”

Ngunit di namalayan na sa oras na tumatakbo
Ang sistemang hinindian ay di naman humihinto
Unti-unting nilulukuban ang kanyang pagkatao.
Isang umaga ay nagising na lang ang batang katoto
Tumingin sa nadaanan,nagiisip kung nasaan na ako.

Di naman dito nagtatapos ang kwento
Pero kung ano kakahitnan, di ko pa napagtatanto.

Bitin. 🙂

SLA – the maximum amount of time that a task can be put off that the requester cannot contest except to raise the cost by involving higher-paid individuals to increase the imaginary priority shown to external users.

Sometimes misunderstood to be the time needed to require work to be completed.

Imagine This

Imagine an environment where standards are strictly enforced.
Where security is of paramount importance.

Now imagine that at the expense of productivity or rational reasoning.
Where compliance is dictated by the contents of a clipboard checklist.

Philippines is the prime example of a modern day Babel.

Calls for unity is a running and expensive gag. Political opinions are like assholes, 99.99% of the people have one; most of them different in varying degrees; and each group hell bent in believing that they are in the right. The best we can aspire for is a ruling majority as even consensus is too far fetched of a goal.

Make no mistake that I love my country. Its people, not as much. But the weird part is that we make good citizens but only if it is in a foreign land. I am still puzzled if it means those who have the qualities of being a good citizen tend to migrate out of frustration, or if the endemic political system in the country is really an engulfing viral machine immune to vaccinations. Maybe it is both?

Patriotic but tribalistic; the combination is a bitter sweet pill to swallow. It is like mixing oil and water which is possible with the right emulsifier. If only we can agree on what that is.

The Golden Rule

Wikipedia starts its definition of the Golden Rule with mentioning its reference as a law of reciprocity in most religion. For some reason this version is the one that sticks with me:

golden-rule-art

It is fairly long but there is a shortened version for it which is not normally used as it shows the selfishness of the quote:
