New look yet again...

Felt kinda tired about the look of my blog, and I decided to go with a
more minimalistic approach to blogging. I also forgot about my
traditional website look and put the sidebar at the right -- this way
people get to read the post first before other things regarding my
blog. In case people didn't notice, the last time I used the right hand
sidebar was with the first time I used the blog. I don't know why I
prefered having the sidebar on the left, when it's a known fact (or
concept) that english and thus the first thing you read is usually at
the left side of the page/sentence/word. Unless of course you look from
the right to your left, which is something I wouldn't want to talk
about anytime soon.

I definitely like the new look now, however I might consider using a
different color scheme, knowing that my favorite color is blue, and the
best shade for me would be grey. I'm not sure if that last statement
made sense, but I remember someone telling me that black/white are not
colors, rather degrees of shade -- black being the haviest shading,
while white would be the lack thereof. I also remember from high school
science wherein the techer would repeatedly cite the visible light
spectrum, and that the combination of all the light colors/frequencies
consisted white light, while the lack thereof would be black.

In any sense, I wouldn't want to get technical about color, but I have
just been starting with the technicalities of my thesis. I've recently
finished coding the prime number finding application with the MRADA
algorithm -- take note, coding. I'll be testing the thing around monday
when I finally start completing my deficiencies in college -- to make
up for lost time, I would have to work 3x smarter than I would if I had
taken care of those things in the outset. Anyhow, I believe I could get
throught these things ASAP, since I don't like rotting in this dung
hole I call the Philippines.

I've also been able recently to complete (or at least accomplish most
of the things regarding) my thesis' methodology. I should be able to
print it tomorrow and have it proof read by my adviser on Monday. On
the same day I should be able to gather all the notes I will need to
complete my Chapter on related literature. By the end of the month I
should have a semblance of a manuscript ready for the scrutiny of the
people at our institute. I should also have been able to run the tests
on the ASTI, ICS and the AGILA cluster. On which time, I should also be
able to tell whether or not I would be able to accomplish everything by
the 3rd of september of this year.

Until that time, I should get working.

Chill...

From FOMO to JOMO

Until very recently I believed that I needed to be on top of the latest news and happenings not only in my field (computer science and software engineering) but also in as many things as I can be on top of. This meant subscribing to all sorts of magazines, newsletters, YouTube channels, Twitch streamers, watching TV and live sport events, etc. — I was on top of a lot of the latest happenings, trends, news, interesting developments. I was having fun and I felt busy. What I did not feel was particularly effective nor productive. I felt like I was consuming so much information with the thought that it might be useful someday. When I was younger this wouldn’t have been an issue but I realised that ever since I’ve started taking stock of what I’ve been spending my time on, that a lot of it I’ve been spending just staying on top of things that I really didn’t need to be on top of. This article is about some of the realisations I’ve made in the course of exploring this issue of “FOMO” or th…

A Passion Project

I was so moved today by the prospect of a passion project that I took some time on a Friday night to get it done. Let me present the #RedJeans project over at redjeans.org. I've found myself wanting to work on a project that came purely from the heart and one that was very dear to me, something that is personal, and connects with a larger community of people in the world.
The idea for redjeans.org came to me as a hint when I was writing up my reflection for 2018. I realised that I didn't spend quite as much time identifying with and working with a community. I did a bit of soul-searching and found that one of the activities I really enjoyed and cherished in years past is donating blood -- and I keep wondering why not more people do it. It was an idle thought but then a conversation with someone where I described why I wrote down "donate blood more often" in 2019 became an idea where instead of just me doing it, how about if I get my friends to do it too?

I left it a…

Futures and Options I: My Introduction to Computing

I've recently been thinking about how my decisions early in life have done me good to put me where I'm at right now. I've certainly lived a very fortunate life -- been blessed with so many good things and been down-right lucky being at the right place at the right time. My 30 year journey to where I am now has been very interesting. I can pretty much say that the experiences I've had up to this point have very much contributed to making me who I am -- and that I regret nothing. Still though I keep thinking about what my life would be like if I hadn't made certain choices I did make throughout the years. There are a few choices I've made that I've stuck to and I keep thinking about wondering "what if I made a different choice instead" -- and the more I think about it, the more I'm happy about the decisions I've made.

Note: This is Part 1 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. If you're intere…
