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

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.
