The Sorrow of Mr. Sparrow

Nowadays, Mr. Sparrow, 30, has been feeling down and empty the next, no matter how many times he has tried to feel better. Sometimes there are some bursts of anger, as noticed by his family. He had a seemingly-laughable emo phase in between his high school and college years, but this sadness is different. This sadness is mixed with confusion about everything. Everything.

X: WFH

Our office is on renovation since last Christmas. It’s going well so far. They painted the grey wall white, added artificial grass (also signifying our office color), replaced the fugly wood with a better one, and made the pantry door unnoticeable. A new year, a new office vibe. 

Today the office needs more cleaning and polishing. So, almost 96% of us are in our homes, working from home. I’m in my bed, on standby for tasks. Or so they think. Magpatuloy sa pagbabasa X: WFH

Note to Self VIII

“I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.”

It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of fucking shit.”

— Dave Grohl, on an episode of WTF with Marc Maron (2013)


In the “Note to Self” series, I write down things my heart and mind should remember. And I hope these notes will reach to your minds and hearts as well.

And I love Dave Grohl. And his birthday is coming up (January 14). Yey!
