It’s lunch time, although I had my meal a little earlier. I had to go to the bank to get my ATM card, so I thought I’d take an early lunch break. At 11, I was already out of the office and walking the rather long walk to the bank.
I truly didn’t mind the walk. I like it, and consider it as my exercise. It’s not really much of an effort, really, given that the terrain is flat. I do terribly mind the heat, and wish I had some sunblock.
Eastwood is an interesting place to work in. It’s quite unlike Ayala, where you could contain yourself in your building and be happy. Plus, given that Ayala is a major road, you do get people who are not normally working in the area. Eastwood, however, is like a cul-de-sac. It’s a place one has to specifically go into from the very busy E. Rodriguez avenue. That’s not to say that it’s a difficult place to get to. On the contrary, there’s a lot of ways to get here.
The difference is, Eastwood is contained, compared to Ayala, or even Ortigas (although there’s a bit more similarity with the latter than the former). When inside Eastwood, you feel like you’re in a community where it wouldn’t be hard to know everybody. Already I’m seeing familiar people during my daily walk, and the most fun part of it all is, I even see people I used to work with.
It is, as I said, interesting. And there are plenty more places I haven’t see to explore.
I am happy to have found complete online collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. I’ve been meaning to get a copy of the book but until my finances are flush, I’ll make do with this. My payday is still two weeks away, so I am living on a very strictly budgeted life.
I’m quite sleepy now. The Mountain Dew didn’t have an effect on me, it seems.
