Technical Glitch

In my work, whenever our systems are down or behave strangely causing consequences to the clients, we are only authorised to say we have a technical glitch.

This glitch can be minutes, hours or days ( actually people would kill us if it took us days to fix it), we can never say. And actually we never know.

What I do know is that if I was a client I would like to know the truth. It doesn’t have to be a complete explanation of what happened. Simply say “We are aware of that problem, we are working to fix it, as soon as we have an update we will let you know”. In reality what we say is : “Oh really, there is a problem? It may be a technical glitch and it may be a timing issue until it goes back to normal”. Then we put down the phone and run for our lives. What kind of client is satisfied knowing that our system has glitches which we aren’t aware at all if they don’t tell us. I wonder….

These past days have been technical glitches for me.  But I’m back because in the end it was just a timing issue.

Mood of the day

“In the light of the sun, is there anyone? Oh, it has begun…
Oh dear, you look so lost, your eyes are red and tears are shed,
This world you must’ve crossed…
You said…

You don’t know me, and you don’t even care, oh yeah,
And you said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… oh yeah,

Essential yet appealed, you carry all your thoughts across an open field,
When flowers gaze at you… they’re not the only ones who cry when they see you
You said…

You don’t know me, and you don’t even care, oh yeah,
Well you said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… oh yeah,

She said I think I’ll go to Boston…
I think I’ll start a new life,
I think I’ll start it over, where no one knows my name,

I’ll get out of California,
I’m tired of the weather,
I think I’ll get a lover and fly him out to Spain…

Oh yeah and I think I’ll go to Boston,
I think that I was tired
I think I need a new town to leave this all behind…

I think I need a sunrise,
I’m tired of the sunset,
I hear it’s nice in the summer, some snow would be nice… oh yeah,

You don’t know me, and you don’t even care, oh yeah…

Boston…
No one knows my name.”

Wondering Mind

Questions that hunt me daily:

  • Am I a bad person?
  • Is there one thing that I am actually good at?
  • Am I a good mother? Am I doing everything wrong?
  • Am I paying enough attention to my boyfriend?
  • Am I pretty enough?
  • Why don’t I like to socialize more?
  • Am I interesting in the least?
  • What is wrong with me?

I worry that most of the answers will be negative.

Do people wonder about this frequently like I do? I feel weird.

Soul Country?

souma

Soul mate supposedly is a person that you immediately connect since the moment we speak.

Linguistics aside, can a soul mate be a country?

I find that my soul mate is Germany. I spent there a year of my life and I loved it. Yes, I know….what exactly is so great about Germany? I could have picked a more exotic place.

I immediately connected with the color green everywhere, with the people, with the lifestyle.soulmate

Soul mates can be lovers, friends, family, animals and for me, a country. As strange as it may appear.

Mood of the day

All alone
It was always there you see
And even on my own
It was always standing next to me

I can see it coming from the edge of the room
Creeping in the streetlight
Holding my hand in the pale gloom
Can you see it coming now?

Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
Oh, I think I’m breaking down

All alone
Even when I was a child
I’ve always known
There was something to be frightened of

You know that I can see you coming from the edge of the room
Creeping in the streetlight
Holding my hand in the pale gloom
Can you see it coming now?

Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
Oh, I think I’m breaking down

All alone
On the edge of sleep
My old familiar friend
Comes and lies down next to me

And I can see you coming from the edge of the room
Smiling in the streetlight
Even with my eyes shut tight
I still see you coming now

Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
