Family

Yesterday I got to talk to my mom. I love her so much, and I miss her so much that I suddenly felt that I've been growing very far from the family that I so very much love and have been a part of all my life. Just a couple of days ago, I received a comment on my blog from the newest member of the Berris family (my second cousin Jeff's wife, ate Menchee) and I deelply appreciate it.

I have been living with my cousin here in Manila, and I never really felt how lonely it can feel if you're away from you're family for a considerable while. My infrequent visits to Calauan every other weekend don't really feel like a touch of home base because mainly I still work when I get home. And besides, I sleep around more than 12 hours on weekends with the hope of trying to get my biological clock back on track. I'm pretty sure it's not working because well, frankly I'm still up at 2:30 am in the morning due to work. I'm not complainint, but I can't do anything about it just yet.

I'm thankful to my superior, Ms. J, that she has enough confidence in me and my capabilities to allow me to work with mobile-arts even if I'll be in Laguna studying in UPLB. I should show my appreciation more by going to office early and that's precisely what I plan to do in the near future. In short, I don't plan on sleeping just to get to work early. Really early this time, maybe arounf 8 am, I should be logging in already.

Anyhow, later's going to be my last real day at work, and next week I'll be working in Laguna, and meeting clients in Manila only on days when I have free days from my school schedule. And I also plan on finishing the thesis really soon because frankly, I can't let it keep piling up as the time and resources go flying by.

Maybe reporting once in a while to the office and meeting up with friends, but I certainly will have to maintain the contacts in Manila.

It's going to be another transition period for me, and I had (and am still having) fun at this current phase I'm in, and I plan on learning more as life takes me further into time and the future. I just hope other people are also having as much fun as I am.

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 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!
