Artsy?

I've been dabbling with photographing almost anything around me, and a couple days ago I snapped up quite a number of pics. I know I need to improve with the photography (treating the subjects, angles, framing, etc.). So much to learn, so litte time. But it's alright, I'm patient enough (I think).

Scroll? This is a black and white treatment of tissue paper and a ball-point pen on a table at home. Wasn't going for anything artistic, but I was trying to capture the details and pun of the situation.

Meow. This is a snapshot of a cat poised right in front of me at our store here in Calauan. The cat grew at the store, as she was born there too. I never thought cats could be good keepers of the store.

Tool. I tried to make the simple umbrella look like an omnipotent tool, and a powerful device. I think I broke a couple of rules and techniques for taking photographs when I took this photo, but I'm still learning. ;)

Help! The shot makes me look like a little child asking for help. Thanks to lynette for taking the shot at their office at UPLB. And thanks to her too, I'm getting "free lesssons" on taking photographs.

Comments on the pics are most welcome. Will be posting more soon.

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!
