If you scroll down, you would see one of my previous posts entitled A BUCKET OF RAIN which is a blog entry about me longing for a rainy weather because summer is too damn hot. But now I wanted to rant about the rain.
Here in the Philippines, June to November is the rainy season. Uhm, No. STORMY SEASON. We usually have more than a dozen storms a year leaving so manu damages. Floods everywhere, tress fell down, flying roofs, no electricity, no water and the minimum death toll is approxumately 10. Now, why would I want that?
I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes we can never be contented. If it’s hot, we want it cold and vice versa. And this isn’t only about the weather. More often than not, we long for and focus more on what we don’t have. It’s sad to know this but at the same time, it’s a struggle to be contented all the time. Right?
I don’t why would I still rant a about how hot it is here in the Philippines but I just can’t help myself. I know it’s the usual but every summer it just becomes hotter and hotter. Screw global warming!
I still hate those people who don’t care about mother nature. Everything is our fault. We are not contented on what we already have. Just like the song of Counting Crow’s says Don’t it always seem to go unless you don’t know what you got til it’s gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
I don’t have anything against technology but there are some things that we don’t need anymore. Sometimes technology make us lazy.
This for example:
Transportation – from walking to bicycles to cars. Do we really need to take a car to buy a candy from a 1 km distance? And cars releases bad air and straight to the ozone layer.
Food – from fruits and veggies to steaks to canned goods then go back to “organic” foods. Seriously, we are killing ourselves for eating junk and now that we are all aware of what is healthy, we are fooled with the organic hype and pay them at a higher price. Why would the natural be more expensive? What if people can’t afford it? Are they stuck with unhealthy canned goods?
I won’t elaborate on other stuff. You know how people destroy nature. It’s a good thing some do something about it. But do you think that “some” can change the world and bring it’s original beauty?
It’s so hot. I would gladly give my salary just to pay for a bucket of rain pouring on me.
