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...

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.

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…

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.

Note: This is Part 2 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. If you're interested, please stay tuned to the next parts as I go through them. Thanks for reading!

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…
