winter came

Our favorite series is back! I watched Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere last night and I cannot wait for the next episode!!! excited much?! 

So, I will not spoil the show in case you haven’t seen it yet.  I am here to update my Game of Thrones Funko Pop collection.

My GOT pop wishlist! -only a few more.

Right before the season 7 premiere, Kei and I went on a pop haul in Greenhills. Getting 4 pops in one go. We have Night King, Grey Worm, Margaery Tyrell, and Stannis Baratheon. We took the chance to buy now before the price shoots up.

our haul!

Well technically we got 5, four GOT pops and a freebie. We got a Marvel pop as the freebie- a Yellow jacket to be with our Ant man.

The feeling when looking for new Pops -Looking to the east, looking to the west, looking to the south, looking to the north… We will find the Pops. *A parody on Cersei’s  “Enemies to the east, enemies to the west, Enemies to the south, enemies to the north. Whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it.”*

We saw Tywin Lannister but it was priced at 750php so that could wait. Petyr Baelish was nowhere to be found.

I have 2 pops (Tormund Giantsbane- to pair with my Brienne of Tarth, and Cersei Lannister- the one with the crown) on pre-order from my cousin Jacky in the US. Pretty excited for these two. 

Still wishing that they create a new version of Sansa Stark in the new garb!

calling Funko! please create a (red head/badass) Sansa Stark pop!

Still looking for a decently priced Joffrey Baratheon and Ned Stark though. Any leads?

cynicism

Cynicism-is an attitude or state of mind characterized by a general distrust of others’ apparent motives or ambitions, or a general lack of faith or hope in the human race or in individuals with desires, hopes, opinions, or personal tastes that a cynic perceives as unrealistic or inappropriate, therefore deserving of ridicule or admonishment. It is a form of jaded negativity, and other times, realistic criticism or skepticism. The term originally derives from the ancient Greek philosophers called the Cynics who rejected all conventions, whether of religion, manners, housing, dress, or decency, advocating the pursuit of virtue in accordance with a simple and idealistic way of life. (meaning taken from wikipedia)

The thing that annoys me more then people who only call me when they need something…is the fake smile and conversation before they ask. I absolutely hate it.

See, today a lot of people are missing at work, not that its wrong but it is really a weird phenomenon that leaves the workplace in a difficult position. Usually I am asked/tasked/forced to cover for those who are absent/sick/on a vacation/insert whatever reason here, but I absolutely hate it due to the fact that they don’t even try to make things easier for you.

I feel so helpless when the “higher” ups decides to pay me a visit on my desk with their cheery and commanding voice, that tells me “hey, insert-name-here is out so can you cover for him?” I have given up my Independence day ( and some other holidays) to cover for the absence of those people, on my regular days I skip/rush my afternoon break to help out,  and on my half day of work, you still want me to work whole day?

“Not today, I have somewhere to go.”   I answer.

Then I get half a minute of “because we lack people that is why we have to call on anyone who can fill in.” in a no more cheery/slightly annoyed/still commanding voice.  I fight the urge to talk back, and with dead malice, I just smile.

 

It pays to have willpower. That’s very important in this world, because if someone had talked/fought back they’d be dead.
