Life Lately



I’ve been stuck on Surrounded by Idiots for months but I don’t want to quit it because it feels wrong lol. You know when you get a really boring books it takes ages for you to finish and it’s frustrating because you can’t skip to the next one without feeling weird that you abandoned a book 46% into it? But man, I’m three books behind my goal for 2022 Goodreads Challenge and I can’t lose traction just because of a boring book. There has to be a way to overcome this. Yeah, I’m skimming it. That’s it. 


Nothing, at last! We finally finished She-Hulk: Attorney At Law this afternoon which was a relief hahaha. To be honest I didn’t like the show. I can’t say anything good about it. Oh wait I think I have one, it’s *spoiler alert* Hulk’s son.

Ever since episode one I’ve prepared myself for the worst and to be fair, episode after episode it keeps getting worse. Oh my God.

So what’s wrong exactly?

  • The script. It’s so badly written, full of preachy woke agenda that doesn’t add to the plot, if there’s even one.
  • The comedy is so forced it’s so cringe.
  • Wasted characters. Tatiana for one, I had a lot of expectations. She was the antagonist I was waiting for, or Mallory even, or better yet — Nikki. I’ll find that more convincing, women encounter more bitches than sons of bitches in real life, believe me.
  • Ruined characters, most of them men, of course. They reduced every male character in the show to either wimps, incels, or idiots just to elevate the women in the show. To be honest, I would give it a pass because some are new characters I’m not familiar with so you can introduce them however you want.
  • But to reduce already established characters like The Hulk, Wong, and Daredevil? They were made so uncharacteristic just to prevent them from stealing the spotlight.
  • Very shallow plot. Which is kinda reflective of the whole modern-day feminist movement and the real weight of their agenda. Oops.
  • No character development. I think the writers wanted to show how Jen struggled between her two identities and eventually learned to embrace them both. I was waiting for that to unfold. But it wasn’t shown anywhere. She just said she can be both at the end, but again, there was no proof. Much like everything she complained about being a woman on episode 1, all but an echo. She has no arc.
  • As a law comedy it already failed on a legal front, and it’s not funny too. Now I don’t know what to call it.
  • Jen kept breaking the fourth wall to remind us it’s her show, which was cute at first, but eventually became pathetic. Up to the last episode she’s been trying to claim the show. Which is weird because it’s already named after her. It’s such a weirdly insecure act for someone who is so self-assured.

I guess, in true woke fashion, the series is trying to show who the real antagonists are, which is everyone who didn’t like She-Hulk haha. Wow. I must admit, they’ve really mastered the art of victimhood. Congrats! They made it required watching, baited everyone into the anticipated cameos, and yet they couldn’t just make it into a good show? They just really want to push the agenda so they can make sexists of everyone who disagree. They knew it sucked and thought it was a gotchu moment lol.

About what day of the week to come to work.

I’m in the office right now and I kinda like the spot where I’m in; row’s end beside the window. I haven’t been able to sit where I used to (which is beside my teammate) ever since I started coming in at 3pm and even though there’s no shortage of seats around here, I don’t like the fact that I have to worry about not knowing where to sit as soon as I get to the floor. It gives me anxiety, you know. The same dread an outcast feels coming in to a cafeteria full of people. Which is why I’m considering coming in on Mondays or Fridays instead. I’m still not sure.

Generally, I want to avoid days where I have meetings because I prefer to take them at home. And the only days I have no regular meetings are Wednesdays and Fridays. The good thing about Wednesday is that I get to see one of my teammates cos he comes in Tues-Thurs. We have a short overlap where I can ask questions and stuff and kinda just show myself, and that’s good. My husband also comes to his office on Wednesdays, so we get to leave the house together. It’s pretty practical for us. On the day we both work in the office I don’t have to prepare dinner so we can both eat out. The only downside to coming in on Wednesdays is that a lot of people also come to work on Wednesdays, as I have observed, and obviously I want to avoid them haha. 

Let’s take a look at Friday. I haven’t tried coming in on a Friday. I think less people come to the office on this day so I wouldn’t have to worry about looking for a seat. But also, I have no teammate to personally bother lol, aaaand I think traffic is generally bad on this day. Especially when it falls on a payday. 

So yeah, I guess Wednesday is really the obvious choice. 


My breath pollute my face mask.


For some clarity at work. I have a task now, and I don’t know what to do. I’m currently in the information gathering phase, which isn’t looking so good because I don’t have a clear plan. What I know is that I need to make an as-is process documentation to really understand what they do, get the right access to relevant sites so I can emulate what they do, learn how automations are developed and deployed here (what I’m currently stressing about), and finally develop and deploy everything properly. I think I know what to do but I don’t have a template for it.

What I want to do properly though is maintain a Confluence site for all of the details of this project. I really wanna learn how to do things here properly, but I’m not even teammates with the people who can help me from a development standpoint. And in order to move forward I have to really reach out, and I suck at reaching out because I’m not really the proactive type huhu. This stresses me out so much.

Part of me wants to delay this until my new teammate comes in so we can tread together. I blame myself for asking for work too early lol I could have just enjoyed the months until my new teammate comes haha.

♥ That I got to roam around High Street earlier. I reached the almost far end of the strip, where Fully Booked is.
♥ Got 50 off on my coffee at CBTL too. It’s not as good though, their cafe latte, I don’t recommend CBTL anymore. Muji’s is better, and cheaper too.
♥ Had dinner at Salad Stop, ordered Oh Crab Lah wrap. Love it!


To get our house cleaned. I have “general cleaning” scheduled every month on my calendar but sometimes I forget until it comes to a point where I couldn’t walk barefoot at home anymore because it’s too dusty. We’ve always had a dust problem at home. With the amount of construction happening around our condo, it’s a must to vacuum every single day otherwise we’d be dead of allergies.

There are five parts to getting the house really clean: CR cleaning, surface cleaning, floor cleaning, decluttering, and organizing. I cannot do everything in just one session. Good thing I scheduled for a deep cleaning tomorrow, they’ll take care of the first three parts. Looking forward to having the house clean again! 


Uhm, to really make some good progress at work. Please pray for me! 


My head hurt. I need to go home now.
