Caffeine for the Sleepless

#shareyourkape #caffeineforthesleepless #complexcoffee

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Financial Management and have been fortunate enough to find jobs where I was actually able to use that degree. The bulk of my professional career has been working as an analyst for a bank and an insurance company, and my coffee consumption, scrutiny, and tolerance has increased during this time. This isn’t really a flex (though it literally would have been a weird one if it was), it has something to do with this post’s topic.

The questions is: with the phenomenon that is “I need to drink coffee to make coffee”, is making coffee a complex task?

This is a rant

#shareyourkape #swirlthatcoffee #pourovergamestrong

I had a recent revelation. We have an uncle (well, he’s my mom’s cousin) who lives with us. He helps us out in the house and I pay him a wage on top of what he earns being employed by the barangay. I confronted him about going out drinking with people not living with us (we’ve also talked about this several times during 2020) even when there were recent confirmed Covid-19 cases inside our village. One of the reasons he gave why he thought it was not reckless (what he did) was that they were drinking gin – because he was told that gin kills the coronavirus. What was my revelation? My wife and I live with someone who actually believed that.

I was on TV and it was not, in any way, about coffee – and I said “more power”

I have on TV three times (that I know of): I got interviewed for a news show when the LRT 2 was just newly opened (I was still a student then, yeah I’m old); I got focused as part of the crowd watching an NCAA game for hamming it up to the cameras; and I was on Tulfo.

Of actual solutions to problems (also something about Snowpiercer)

#shareyourkape #friedhats #indonesiafrinsa #anaerobicprocess

I’ve been watching the second season of the Snowpiercer series on Netflix and I absolutely love it. Just finished what technically is the penultimate episode of the season (although it is just episode 8 of 10) and I just like how they wrote that. Without spoiling anything so much, the blow dealt by one major character to another one was so decisive without needing to resort to force. It was done by highlighting his strengths while also making his opponent’s weakness so clear that you can’t really question who won this one. It was good writing, good acting, and ultimately great directing. How was it done? There was a problem, someone qualified had the best solution for it.
