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!

Appreciating Rizal...

Nope, this is not an academic post. More of a reflective and wrote-because-i-was-enlightened type post. Anyway, I just passed a paper on Rizal's notion of a nation according to Quibuyen (a local writer who devoted a book -- A Nation Aborted -- on his treatise on Rizal). Chapter 6 was an interesting read, and a definite eye opener. Rizal all of a sudden became interesting, especially to someone like me who could care less. It seems that most of what Rizal aims for and wrote about is still evident in today's Philippines as I see it. I wonder why I didn't get to appreciate Rizal and his work when I was still in high school -- might be the fault of the high school and the curriculum, or might be because I was still considerably immature then. I wasn't able to understand most of Rizal's writings though even if I got to reading them basically because they translated from Spanish to Filipino/Tagalog. I don't have problems with Tagalog, until you put it in writing. I

So much for that...

I just came home from the seminar regarding my proposed load balancing algorithm. I tried to get as candid as I can, but still half of what I said was jargon -- which made me explain the thing in layman's terms and using more colloquial examples. I was wearing a black suit, (chinese collared americana suit that is), gray slacks, black leather belt (perry ellis), and leather shoes (by bristol). I'm beginning to sound like a caption to a fashion mag's pic, but I digress... So there I was, waiting for the seminar to start. As a speaker, I conducted myself properly and tried to get things cleared out with my co-presentors. I was asuuming that they knew at least half of what they were supposed to talk about, and that they knew how to speak in front of a crowd. BUT NO... I sat through two presentors, the first one reading the presentation of the projection, and then doing no explaining whatsoever. I didn't get that because she prepared her own slides, and prepared the hand

Reconnecting with people

2021 started with a a good sense of connection for me, having spent time with friends and family in a simple celebration of the oncoming year. The transition from 2020 to 2021 and being able to look back at a good part of my recent history got me thinking about how life has been for me and the family for the past decade. There’ve been a lot of people that I’ve met and become friends with while there are those that I’ve left behind and lost touch with. There’s a saying about treating old friends different from new ones, which I do appreciate now that I’m a bit older. It also means that my relationships with people that I get to spend a good amount of time with take a different shape. This reflection has given me some time and space to think about what it means to reconnect with people. Friends are the family we choose ourselves. — Edna Buchman I have the privilege of having life-long friends that I don’t always stay in regular contact with.
