too long a break.

it has been so long since i last wrote to this blog, and sometimes im beggining to forget why i even have a blog.

basically, i want an outlet of thoughts and emotions, as well as an activity in which i can reflect upon what has been happening to my life lately. well now that im back on track, and am very much in the mood for reflection, im getting back on the horse which has taken me to a place i really like -- deep inside of me.

yes, there have been a lot of events in my life, as well long stretches of uneventful moments. nowadays, moments seem to come unnoticed and even come like the wind that passes me by. maybe its because im pretty much content and somewhat accomplished in my life, that things seem to just pass by unnoticed.

however, it may be because ive found peace in myself, and now that i am a godfather to three very young and very lovable kids -- diche's pong, ate lev's jose, and dianne's tsianina -- my life seems to be more than just my struggles in the present, but their life and future. i take my being a godfather seriously, and because i do, i try to be the best godfather i can be. although i would love to be there and act as their father or just like a father, i can only do so much right now.

right now, ive been focusing on planning my life and realizing the goals i can accomplish right away. i have been contemplating on a lot of things that i want to have by the time i want to have it comes. but more than that, i have also been realizing ways in which how i can obtain these things while im at it - and i keep this in mind day by day.

and as i end the days, i always make an effort to thank God for the wonderful life i have, and the people around me who have been special in their own way to me. and everyday, i wish other people do too - because the world would be a whole lot better place to live in.

until next time! =)

by the way -- i love you elvine!!! ;-)

Futures and Options III: Economics, Journalism, or Computer Science

I realise it's been a year since my previous post on this blog, and I've found myself having very little time to do another "brain dump" on the subject of my early choices in life. With that in mind (and as I'll be traveling again soon) I get to think a little more and reflect on a few of the things that have happened.

Much like the previous post, this one's set in high school -- where I was part of the swimming team, in a band, had been programming with Turbo Pascal, Java, and then C++ later on, and was about to make a choice that would literally change the course of my life. This one is about the choices I made, and the ones that were made for me.

Note: This is part 3 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and thoughts, as well as for your reading through this series!


Rant: Despair and Hopelessness

This weekend I had the chance to do a Google+ hangout with my father in the Philippines. He and I don't talk often but we do have a very good relationship. My dad is cool like that. In this hangout we talked about a few things happening in the Philippines and I've gotten the feeling that my homeland is getting ever deeper into economic disrepair, and that the politics to which I've come to be hopeless on is beyond repair. I've wanted to get something off my chest that's been bothering me for a while now, so if you would indulge me please read on.

Background

I grew up in a part of the Philippines where the land is fertile, there are thriving industries, and there's a certain sense of abundance and stability. This part of the Philippines has good schools, good employment opportunities (mostly industrial and service industries), good investment opportunities (real-estate and agricultural), and good potential for growth. This was true when I was young and this is tr…

Get a Life Coach

Have you ever played a sport whether individual or team sports where your top performance was required for any measure of success? If you have, you may have had the benefit of at least one coach guiding you to point out better form, better strategies, alternative approaches, keeping you accountable, identifying our strengths and weaknesses, and overall telling you to listen to your body and focus on your goals. If you haven't then would you like to have someone on your side, not judging you then generally cheering you on while you attempt to achieve whatever your goals are? For the past year I've been working with a life coach and I can say it's worked so well for me that I cannot help but recommend everyone consider investing in life coaching.

I used to swim back when I was a student in university as part of the varsity team. I had a number of coaches then who taught me not just the technical aspects of swimming, but also the mental fortitude required to train effectively…
