- Wind of Change by Scorpions
When Barack Obama said “…change has come to America,” he kid you not. I never thought that it’d hit me so hard, and so fast, it comes without a warning, almost like a tornado, sad to see friends, co-workers that I’ve worked with over 10 years leaving one by one. I’m still thinking that it’s a nightmare, and that I’d wake up from this, but as time passes, the reality sinks in. I dare say today that not all change is good, might be that I’ve too much put on me, must be some sort of curse, I feel like I’m drowning in my own poo, but yet I’m the lucky one. My feeling might change tomorrow, but for now, I‘m thinking about today.
Another thing that I learned just now, I was looking for an MP3 song, What About Now by Daughtry at switchpod, a site where I hosted all my MP3 songs that are posted at this blog. Instead of their normal screen, it has a Final Notice in bold print, and below read: As of Monday May 25th, 2009 the Switchpod service has gone off-line…speechless, I checked my MP3 songs, “file not found”. Great, at this moment, I’m not sure what I will do, I never did receive an email from them, what do I expect from a free on-line service.
Of course, my MP3 situation is not that important comparing to everything else that is going on. For most of us, we never thought we’d live to see the day when GM file for bankruptcy, it’s unthinkable. When I read that “…A bankruptcy filing for General Motors could come in the next few days…”, I thought of all the people that work there, their families, what will they do? One of my retired co-workers that works part-time said that it was shocking, she never thought that she would live to see this day. It is sad indeed, I told her that I think Americans have changed, take her for instance, she switched from American made car to Honda, the boss also switched to Toyota, and the owner switched to BMW. As for me I’ve always driven a Toyota.
Also sad to hear that Ghost Town in the Sky that I visited last October also filed for bankruptcy protection and reorganization under Chapter 11 in March of this year, and if things don’t get better, this might be their last season.
Most people that know me know that I don’t like changes, but one change that I like to make today is to change my pen name from Ginger back to Nye, the name that most people know me by, I hope this change is for the better. As bad as situation may seems, it helps to talk to friends or someone about it, and don’t let things bottled up inside, just remember one thing, nothing (good or bad) lasts forever.
