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

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!


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…

Rant: Despair and Hopelessness

This weekend I had the chance to do a Google+ hangout with my father in the Philippines. He and I don't talk often but we do have a very good relationship. My dad is cool like that. In this hangout we talked about a few things happening in the Philippines and I've gotten the feeling that my homeland is getting ever deeper into economic disrepair, and that the politics to which I've come to be hopeless on is beyond repair. I've wanted to get something off my chest that's been bothering me for a while now, so if you would indulge me please read on.

Background

I grew up in a part of the Philippines where the land is fertile, there are thriving industries, and there's a certain sense of abundance and stability. This part of the Philippines has good schools, good employment opportunities (mostly industrial and service industries), good investment opportunities (real-estate and agricultural), and good potential for growth. This was true when I was young and this is tr…
