Beautiful Sunday 423 - all these issues

In my previous post, I emphasized this health threat turned global crisis did not start in my country. Like everyone else, we are casualties. A few days ago. I encountered a number of publications tagging my struggling country as the land of covid19. I wish to reiterate, we never started it.

Beautiful Sunday 422 - We never started it

My usual Sunday post almost made it for next week. Been overwhelmed with work the past few days. Classes will start soon, I'm still completing my module. The google meets are becoming stronger. This week alone, I had my highest number of remote meetings. I still can't get used to rendering presentations, without seeing the faces of my audience. It feels weird talking to your laptop's screen and waiting until someone responds. I'm not sure how it feels during synchronous sessions with students. These days, I want to have a vlogger friend. I need someone who can teach me to look great on remote meetings, proper positioning and lighting, feel confident in front a laptop's screen and handling passive audiences.

Beautiful Sunday # 421 - Things I miss

Things I'm obsessing these days include the rosegold kitchenwares and statice flowers. There should have been a product photography project lined up the past weeks. Unfortunately, client "ghosted" me. I came in prepared, only to be later left in uncertainty. It feels disrespecting and disheartening. I don't implement contracts and complicated agreements. For me, it's as simple as honoring both verbal and written agreement, even on emails and social media conversation. Anyhow, time to move on.

Beautiful Sunday # 420 - Optimism

It's hard to find anything optimistic these days. Businesses are either downsizing, declaring bankruptcy or shutting down operations. Recently, this decades old Filipino-Chinese restaurant in Quezon City surprised us with its intention to cease operations. The most coveted kiddie amusement site in BGC also decided to permanently close its doors.
