We’re in the tail-end of week 6 of the Enhanced Community Quarantine implemented by the national government last March 15, 2020. Apart from the increased difficulty getting food and other “necessities“, not much has changed from our way of life. In actuality, it improved our quality of life; Air quality is better, noise pollution has gone down and our monthly expenditure has gone done. But I feel this is just the calm before the storm which majority of people don’t seem to notice. Regardless, the best course of action is to take the life lessons / reminders this experience has enlightened me with:
Privacy is freedom: The less people and the internet knows about you, the less people you’ll have trying to stick you with their unsolicited opinions up your ass because they have too much up theirs. It also pays to have less competition in this rat race we’re currently in.
It’s always your fault: Regardless of what policies governments and institutions institute, or decisions other people make for you, it’s you who’ll have to live with the consequences not them.
Murphy’s Law: “If something can go wrong, it will.” I’m already asking myself how I can better prepare for the next pandemic, let’s face it, we know it’s gonna happen again.
Stay away from social media: “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience” — Mark Twain
