How to deal with power outages: Back to Basics
I woke up this morning to witness a really weird yellow sky. I wasn’t sure if it were because I didn’t get enough sleep (power outage began at roughly midnight) or the sky really was jaundiced. Here’s a snapshot from my window.
Realizing that it was futile to attempt sleep, I got out of bed at 6AM and checked all my electronic gadgets. Laptop battery died at around 3AM. PSP was also almost dead. Ditto with my camera. My teeth were giving me hell, as they always do when I’m in dire need of sleep, so I wanted to distract myself.
I wanted to blog so bad but I had nothing. I forgot all my colored pens at my parents’ house. Luckily, I remembered that Nath (Rondina) had given me a bunch of felt-tipped pens last semester. I unearthed them from underneath my bed.
I grabbed my notebook and began to scribble. So my real blog entry — well, it’s basically a rant about how awful my day started — can be found in this notebook page:
On the bright side, I finished 3 and a half books today. It’s just that my head is pounding from the lack of food and decent ventilation.
