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

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…
