the aftermath

After the week from hell, I was offline for a whole day on the metblog. For some odd reason, so was everyone else – after a week of posting every few hours, there were no posts yesterday. The day before, I was talking to a friend of mine about how they’d quit a certain visiting-restaurants-in-groups-to-ask-for-donations-after-iftari-plan because of sheer exhaustion, and a general waning of interest on the part of the people who are willing to donate.

The hype is always short-lived. The hype is probably on it’s way to being over.

Now, we’re looking at alternative sources to raise more funds. Movie marathons. Plays. Right after the quake happened, someone said that they thought having a concert might be a great way of raising funds, but it doesn’t seem right to have fun before agreeing to give up some money for something like THIS. It doesn’t make sense.

It still doesn’t. Maybe we’ve just resigned ourselves to (ugly) human nature and are just making the best of it any way we can.
