itching to climb

i am itching to climb. if we had not scheduled another climb to mt. amuyao next week, i would've packed my bags and gone alone. i have everything i need, and more than enough space in my spacious tent. but i'm not the only one with the longing. so finally, we had our pre-climb at gamboa this evening, not after an hour traipsing around the carpark. i've been most unlucky today as i was bothered by not a few aches and pains, which prevented me from keeping pace with the bunch. i had preferred to walk for a few minutes, and took baby steps instead.

earlier today, i went to the denr to inquire about some available job openings for lawyers. the need of the department for one is apparently dire as i was hired on the spot. highly qualified, my interviewer said. and i could not quite disagree. the job is rather attractive. unfortunately, i cannot say the same for the pay. it would be a huge sacrifice on my part to take this job, but it just might be my calling. i also asked about the ombudsman opening. i was ticked off by the avalanche of requirements. it felt like working for a fastfood chain.

tomorrow (or is it later?), i'll be making more inquiries. my savings are all but spent and i have to get my act together and work, lest i find myself an artist in the real sense: suffering. i guess two months of idleness is sufficient to finally realize what i want... but then again, a whole lifetime may not answer that question. oh dear. what is wrong with me?

Classic Alman.
haha. but of course! you can expect more of those things from me.

hey. do you personally know the guy behind
In a sense. Hehe. When I was in college, I was at his birthday party. I also recently saw him at Fete de la Musique at Eastwood. Other than that (apart from random sightings), it's been online.
