This morning I arrived at the office at around 7:50 or 10 minutes before 8:00. I immediately signed on the log book and wiped my table to make it clean and be prepared for the day’s activities. Then suddenly power went out so the most important appliance in the office the air conditioner stopped. I was also about to plug my computer when the power was out. Unfortunately for us, we don’t have any generator in case of brownout. We have to do our typing jobs with a typewriter.
It was then that I realized that yesterday, there was somebody who informed us that there will be a brownout this day. I didn’t really place it inside my mind. If I had remembered, I would have brought a tshirt. It was really very hot specially that we are not used to having no air conditioner at the office. I am planning of doing some encoding this morning but I was not able to do anything. What I did was to work on things that may be done without a computer. But the biggest thing that I should have done was to draft paper works for our boss. Good that our area in the building is in the side so that there is enough light for us. The other offices specially in the middle are so dark that they could not do their works.
The day passed with so much sweating. It was so hot. Because of this, I thought that I smelt bad and could not bear the heat but I was wrong. I was able to stay at the office until past 5pm. When I went out of the office, I was relieved. It was cool outside. Times without power, we have to relax our mind and do matters that do not need electricity.
