Hiatus...

I've been out of the blogging scene for quite a while -- I don't even remember the last post. I've been to so many places (well, not that many), and gone through so many things, and have met so many new people, that it's really just a chore to actually write everything down. But then I must, and just after reading inspiring stories I'm in the mood to write. So then I'll get to it.

There are some things in life you can let go of -- sometimes it's other poeple. Just when I thought I was going to stop hurting people I love, I end up hurting the person I've genuinely loved since well... I really don't remember the last time I fell in love like THAT. So there, the only person I really truly loved, I managed to hurt and break her heart. All I could be is sorry for who I am and what I do to people, that sometimes it's just not fun anymore.

I remember telling her that "You shouldn't be sorry for who you are..." -- but right now that's the only thing I can be because I am who I am: sorry. But no sense crying over spilled milk, it's better to go look for some other things to cry about.

As for work, I'm having the time of my life (so far). I've been going through a lot of changes and tasks that just breeze me through. I'm taking them on my own pace, and getting to the deadlines as soon as I can. That doesn't include being able to have fun while at it, and I really don't intend to stop having fun while I'm working.

So the pay isn't fantastic (to my standards) but I'm getting by, and I'm not complaining. Not when you're having this much fun working! But then it has got to end sometime... But I'm not waiting for that time to come, I'm gonna have fun while I still can.

Oh, and I'm looking for people to work with on a stream of projects coming into the company. I see that creative thinking, some ambition, and funding will get us somewhere fast. Or not. That I have to see.

So it's been a while, and I've been missing this feeling of pouring my thoughts somewhere people might be able to read it. At least this one comes from the horse's mouth -- or fingers if them horses have any. Anyway, that should be enough for now. I should be able to write a little more regularly now that things are beginning to settle down in this workplace of ours... And I'll be compiling a list of interview bloopers when I have the time, so I'll be damned to see them bloopers online. :D

So until next time, CHill...

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

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

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. From my perspective, if I consider you a frien
