I could tell that I'm in no mood to write when I've been staring in front of the monitor for a good two and half hours already and all I have to show for is a blank document and a blinking cursor. LOL!!! That is exactly the case until I decide to write this post. Nothing wrong with it really. You make do with what you have... and what I have right now is a steaming pile of nothingness. Anyway, it is May 9 here in Manila, time is at 12:18 pm. It's a Monday and the start of the week. By the way, it is also the national elections today. The working dead, er, I mean class, are coming off the weekend but have dutifully lined up in voting precincts to fulfill their obligation. Me, I was suppose to leave earlier than usual but decided against it. I will vote after my shift. I have my voter's ID (it is actually just a stub of paper), my list of who I'll be voting for, lots of patience, and the common sense not to be annoyed by all the small things that can go wrong while I cast my vote. My vote is just one vote but that is no excuse though and I refuse to be affected by apathy. So hopefully, this post gets me rolling and I get to add more articles as the day goes by. Either that or I just go ahead and read other posts and comment. By the way, I refuse to believe that the work week starts on a Monday. Work never stops, it has no beginning and no end. Also, our obligation to ourselves and to our country doesn't end on election day. It continues on and on and on...

@allen0187 happy day to you too. incidentally, the evening news said that DU30 did not attend his proclamation in the House of representatives (Congress) and only LR attended. don't you think it is unbecoming of a president-elect to not attend and show appreciation to those who voted for him? that, i think and believe, is a childish act of the president-elect because he thought he won all by himself and ignored the people's presence.

@ridingbet watched the proclamation yesterday afternoon. I felt a sense of pride and joy when Leni Robredo was finally proclaimed. As for the president-elect, he said that he has a habit of not attending his proclamation even during his mayor and congressman days. I would have wanted to see him attend his proclamation but the guy isn't the run of the mill politician so I can see his reason for doing so.
