so little time...

have you ever had to say the phrase: "so much to do, so little time"? i bet you have. but have you said it in a happy mood? one in which it seems like that you actually like what is happening?

so much has happened to my life these past weeks, that i litterally feel that i have so much to do in such little time...

first, i get to be another person when i go on air (yes, i have been broadcasting on lbfm 97.4 lately). and i dont just get to be another person, i get to be the other person i want others to hear. i get an outlet for my repressed and well kept feelings in the form of music, and talking - two things i really like.

another thing is that somehow, my peculiarities as a geek get to be appreciated. i am part of a pioneering group of programmers that aim to train ourselves and others as well for the improvement of our programming skills. it is also a small group in which we all share a common interest in programming and computer science in general.

and then i get to talk about one of my passions, which is linux - both for free, and for a fee. i got a job offer from an IT training company which would pay me for teaching basic linux administration. i got also a chance to lend my slackware and redhat installers to a few friends, who have also shown interest in trying out and learning linux.

best of all, is that i am enjoying my activities, and the feeling of being busy isn't that bad especially if you enjoy what you are doing. i recommend this to everyone. ;)

chill! :)

elvine: i love you!

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…
