If we were having coffee, I would tell you we have made it through another uncertain week. I remember at the beginning of week, Mom was like Chicken Little, “The world is falling. The world is falling.” She was of course referring to Inauguration Day, which I did not watch. I have never watched an Presidential Inauguration ever.
Is that bad? Oh well, I’ll just add that to a list of stuff I need to do in the future.
Mom seems to have this notion that the world as we know it would end on that day. Guess what? The world did not end. The Earth still spins. There are still night and day. I’m still working my butt off 9, 10 hours a day. The USAF planes are still buzzing over my roof like enormous flies, if not more annoying than ever.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I have to give a speech at my Toastmaster today. Please wish me luck. I’m crossing my fingers I will remember to add a little bit of vocal variety in my speech and that my heart won’t pound so loud in my ears that I can’t concentrate, and that I won’t give away that I will yet again be reading from my computer screen because I couldn’t find the time to memorize a 850-word essay.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you my speech is about my experience as a protégé. I wish I can write about something else but that’s the prompt given by the project. I’ve been struggling to write this speech all week because each time I was about to get off work to work on my speech, an email would appear in my inbox, sending me right back to work again. I should learn to ignore those email until the next day.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I have began selling a manual fixed prime lens on the local classified two weeks ago and it looks like I might finally have a buyer. I sure hope it’s not a scam.
The lens is for my old camera which is next to unusable because of a moldy sensor. I tried both cleaning it myself and taking it to a professional, the photos still were so full of black spots that even with lightroom and photoshop, I couldn’t get rid of it.
If I can sell this lens, I will have to sell the telephoto lens next since I have no use for an E-mount lens when my current camera is a F-mount.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I will definitely have a busy week at work next week since I feel like I was so busy this week that I haven’t really done much of the things I want to do. I just hope I will remember to practice my breathing as my nutritionist suggested before hyperventilation takes place.
If we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me and hoping to return next week.
