All nighter.


This is what happens when you pull an all nighter. Good thing I was able to finish the implementation of the remaining keyword handlers that I was assigned. I'm thankful that I did refactorings earlier on -- it made my job easier in terms of making quick hacks on simple tasks.

And some people insisted that object hierarchies aren't necessary -- and that hierarchies are the root of all programming evil. Maybe it may be determined on a case to case basis, but in my case, I've benefitted from putting all the common code up to the base class, and using these common operations in the specialized class. Being able to make sections of the code "virtual" is such a life saver, I wouldn't know what to do without them now.

Crunch time again, and I need to celebrate and enjoy the fruits of my labor. I might go out tomorrow night barring any major assignments from work. I'd like to be able to enjoy this for the moment -- since I don't have the luxury of sleep, I would have to go on to my 8:30 class (which my beautiful teacher is teaching), then go on to the 10-11 class on introductory scientific computing, and then a 1-4 laboratory on artificial intelligence.

I just hope I can squeeze in the much needed sleep in between classes. I pray that He will guide me through the day and let me go on without the sleep I so need. I thank Him too for he gave me the strength to will myself from sleeping and finishing the coding assignment this time of day. It's unhealthy, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. After all, He gave me the skills to pull it off, all I need to do is use it for His glory.

I like how that sounds. ;)

Anyway, I'm taking sir Jared's advice and I'm uploading color pics of one of the deserts in the past few days here at home -- iced avocado and milk. Unfortunately, I don't eat it, so I just took a picture of the serving.

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

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 in
