During one of our roadtrips, we passed by this beach. Under the scorching heat of the sun, the water looks so blue and calm.
Sometimes, there is a need to look at things from a different view. Exactly like this one.
“I am not supposed to be here!”
Bearing the scorching heat, waiting the world to come to an end— I think I snorted that phrase a hundred times or more.
With the heap of things to finish in the office i.e., annual reports, newsletters, magazines, the third boss decided to transport me to Naga City on a few days notice. She said I had to cover two events, an exhibit and a business con. Learning that the second event would be attended by representatives from business conglomerates, I got excited. The first one however was a drag.
The exhibit was located in an open ground with nothing but tarpaulin to protect your top from the scorching heat. In between explaining and briefing booth visitors, I was cursing and snorting, while wiping the niggling sweat on my face.
In the afternoon, the weather suddenly switched mood. It rained cats and dogs! The flooring of our booth was soaked but I was too tired to do anything about it. A few hours after that, the sun was raging again. At that time, I felt like turning into a Hulk and destroying everything within a foot away from me. The sudden change of weather was really getting into me. Brrr!
So anyway, I did survive that ordeal. In as much as I wanted to leave I could not. You know the saying, “seeing things at different perspectives” well it suits that particular occasion. Like in everything that has happened to me, it has become my instinct to look for reasons. If I didn’t find one, I usually make one.
I was in Bicol for four days. After the first day, I think I did manage to stay in tact pretty much well. I am really thankful I brought my camera with me. It kept me sane somehow.
