So, what have YOU done today?

I've passed my first week of work, and I can say that I am happy. I've met a lot of new people, and am currently working on founding new friendships. Im still learning the ropes, and am currently learning something new everyday. I feel that this is what I really want to do for a long time. And I feel that my skills are not going to waste in this job.

I can't talk about work -- and I won't talk about what I do -- here on my blog. But I can talk about life, and how well I'm taking this transition. Although the budget has to be stretched for the first few weeks and months of work, I feel very confident that I can do it and have fun while doing so. I miss a lot of things though -- miss literally, not miss as in 'longing for' -- like RAW, Smackdown, Cable TV, and the likes. I only get to watch TV during the late nights usually lulling me to sleep -- the next day I get up early and go to work early. Then get home late from a day's work (which I enjoy very much, thanks to my best friend.

Everything (except the budget issue) has been going great so far, and I am very very much satisfied with the work that I have right now. This might change, but right now I seriously doubt that. Especially when I am surrounded by beautiful women (YES, I did say beautiful women). Although we're pretty much busy all the time, it's still a great inspiration for me.

Anyhow, I feel very blessed that I am working a job I can deal with right now. I certainly hope that my schedule normalizes as I stare the holy week in the face and another potentially schedule wrecking break at that in the eye.

I feel though that my blogging urges have subsided substantially, mainly due to being busy doing work. That might change, but I certainly hope it changes for the better. :D

Writing Again

It's 2019 and I just realised that I've not written on this blog for a long while. I feel a little bad about this so I'm picking it back up again. More importantly, I've limited my social media to just Twitter (I've deleted all my Facebook-related accounts) and will be writing more on the blog instead of engaging in other social media sites. If you want to reach me directly, you can also reach me through my keybase.io account for encrypted communication. If you have my phone number, you can also contact me through Signal. Quite a number of things have happened in the past few years and here's a quick update on things that I can share:

I've been working on XRay, a function call tracing system now part of the LLVM project. This took a good two and some years of my time at Google.Most recently I've moved to the Chrome Operations Team still here in Google Sydney. I can't give specifics yet of what I'll be working on, so stay tuned.There've been c…

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 III: Economics, Journalism, or Computer Science

I realise it's been a year since my previous post on this blog, and I've found myself having very little time to do another "brain dump" on the subject of my early choices in life. With that in mind (and as I'll be traveling again soon) I get to think a little more and reflect on a few of the things that have happened.

Much like the previous post, this one's set in high school -- where I was part of the swimming team, in a band, had been programming with Turbo Pascal, Java, and then C++ later on, and was about to make a choice that would literally change the course of my life. This one is about the choices I made, and the ones that were made for me.

Note: This is part 3 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and thoughts, as well as for your reading through this series!
