A Tropical Depression that was passing through Negros and Iloilo caused the cancellation of my ferry trip two days ago. It was warranted because the sudden torrential rain was not reassuring at all - later I found out that there was a small boat that capsized due to the strong waves.
Anyway, in a futile attempt to wait for the weather to clear up, I went to the nearest mall and watched the newest James Bond film Quantum of Solace. I have been a James Bond fan since GoldenEye, and Casino Royale was so good that I had to watch the next one when it came out in theaters. I was not disappointed.
Even as I was lacking sleep, I did not struggle to keep awake during the movie. It should be pointed out that the movie's story does not stand alone: in my opinion, you need to watch the previous movie in order to understand the backstory. It is still a solid, post-Bourne movie.
My computer has been fixed. I guess one bad memory module was enough to keep the computer from posting. That's one less thing to worry about.
I guess I have to keep my nose on the millstone for a little while longer, and hold the hope of working in a more accessible place alive. The trades you have to make while doing a career change.
