It’s already May! I missed Star Wars day and ‘Cinco de Mayo’ because my country is going through a weird season right now… Philippine Elections! and election day will happen in a couple of days, right after Mother’s Day.
Honestly, as an introvert and possibly have passive-aggressive behavior, this is the most stressful thing I’ve ever experienced in my lifetime, not unless I’m pursuing a life-changing career or event — like pregnancy or moving to another country and living there forever.
The tension is already high when 2022 starts, and it got out of control when the candidates have a month left to campaign, especially on social media. I’m already avoiding any propaganda websites, Facebook and Twitter for a long time and yet still find a way to lure me back in.
Even though I don’t engage on those sites, I can still see my friends, relatives, and coworkers voting for a person with a questionable experience and background — I’m disappointed to be honest because they know what happened during that time, so I can’t figure it out why…
But anyway, as I’m the one the “weird”, “rebellious”, “dumb” or the “black sheep of the family” I’ll just be here, voting for the best candidate that we have right now, hoping for the other Filipinos to do the same and it doesn’t f*ck up our economy for the next six (6) years.
Today is the last day of campaigning and some presidential candidates are doing “Meeting de Avance” tonight. I will try my best to go there and be part of it and to feel that I’ve done something important in my mundane existence — I’ll try to take some photos and put them up on Instagram.
Side Note: I better update my other project. It’s quite hard to balance everything right now with the election stress and I’m also studying coding again.
