More, More, More...

I just got home from swim training. Yesterday was a killer day, having swam from 2pm (in the not so high sun of the October day) to 6pm in the evening. 4 hours of swimming, although in a very relaxed or should I say controlled pace. I never thought this exercise of mine would do wonders for my endurance but low and behold, I just swam around 80 laps today. And talk about feeling sexy by the day... Although looking sexy is something I'm really working on. HARD.

Been spending a lot of time lately with this teammate of mine who's got me going into a tailspin. She makes me feel oh so nice, warm and fuzzy inside. We're just enjoying our time, and I am really thankful that she's taking the person that I am in stride. However, I am wondering if I could really court her for 2 years... Perhaps that's something I should see for myself. But I always do like a challenge. And I've already done that, so I shouldn't be worried... Too much... Right?

Anyway, I've been thinking of starting a new blog that's really just for the swim trainig. I've been itching to do this, but right now I'm too preoccupied with the upcoming exams, and the projects that need to be finished by next week. Oh, and of course the person that I really really like -- let's not forget about that. However, I'm still gauging whether I could keep that up.

Maybe that remains to be seen... But with or without a separate blog, I shall blog, swim, and live away in this so called life of mine... Well, that still remains to be seen.

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…

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.

Futures and Options II: Exchange Student

Flash back to 1998, I was a junior in high school in the Philippines. I would have been at the equivalent of 9th grade in the US educational system at age 15. At this point in my life I had been given one of the best opportunities to experience a whole new culture and lifestyle. I had a chance to be an exchange student in middle America for one full year. This post is about how passing up this opportunity changed my life more than I would have ever known at the time.

The Rotary Club

Back during those days my parents had been invited to be part of the Rotary Club in the small town we lived in. There were various kinds of people who were in the club -- writers, businessmen, professionals (lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc.). My parents are businessmen who had very little in the way of…
