30-Minute Warning I

What can I say in this post in under 30 minutes?

Well, this is the 4th straight Minute Warning post and the 1st 30-Minute Warning post here on The Dispatch. That’s great because I have been blogging frequently as I promised. I’m planning to mix it up a bit though. I’m planning to publish more short poems soon and a birthday letter to The Undertaker this Friday, March 24. (Would you look at that… The Deadman has a birthday!) I hope you, my dear reader, can check that out this weekend.

Last night, I saw my younger brothers’ band perform in a bar in Marikina. They performed 2 original songs, and they killed it! The 1st song was released last June 2022, and they are recording the 2nd song recently. I’m pretty excited about the upcoming song because it will be the band’s 1st Filipino single and the lyrics are about resting after being so tired. (That’s a topic I can relate to.)

10-Minute Warning IX

OK. So, what can I type here in under 10 minutes?

Today is World Sleep Day, and I lack sleep. Isn’t that ironic? And I need to sleep early tonight because I will be joining a survey with Father tomorrow morning. This is the 1st time I will be working on a Saturday since… 2014, I think?

In my 1st and previous job, my work schedule is from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. But there was this one time that I needed to work on a Saturday. That counted as overtime work. And the funny thing is that we worked beyond that overtime. I got paid well after that, but it was an exhausting experience.

Anyway, I’m so tired right now. And I tried to take a morning nap while I’m in the car with Mother and Father. (We were on our weekly visit to one of our clients’ offices.) But I can’t get that perfect nap. So I didn’t bother trying again by drinking a Cold Brew Malt from Starbucks Reserve. At least I got to drink one of my favorite non-alcoholic drinks and that extra caffeine boost.

I’ll just sleep early tonight. Tomorrow I’m going to work with Father in the morning, and then go to a gig in the evening. My younger brothers’ band will be performing.

Hey, that rhymed.

And time’s up.
