Yours Truly

I have been swamped with work these past few days, mainly because some people I am working with are people I am still mentoring, and helping develop. We get along fine, but some of the mundane tasks that require common sense and non-expert insights still need to be gone over with supervision. I'm sure they'll get it someday, but I pray for patience as I try to get them up to speed and more proficient in what they do. After all, that's part of my job as a consultant.

My love has been writing again, and I really love her writing. Her being a writer makes so much of a difference between my style, and her style of writing. I for one had not been writing regularly -- at least not English, or not stuff most people will be able to read. What she does, she does almost for a living as a staffer in the UPLB paper. She's been very active in that endeavor, and I'm glad she now takes the time to do some things her herself -- like blogging, attending services with me, and the occasional mall walk with me on weekends.

We'll be coming to our 3rd month together, and I can't wait to see her again -- my being a young professional in Alabang, and her being a student in Laguna has kept us apart for the better part of the past month. It's hard adjusting, but I understand that she's busy -- and I'm thankful that she understands that I'm busy too.

With her writing, I am inspired to chronicle my life again so that she may be able to read up on what's been happening to me during my days. I hope the digital divide allows us to keep in touch and updated with our lives as we live afar, and love each other near.

I love you Yannie! :)

  1. Big bear, I sure am happy also that we'd be on our third month na. Imagine how it all started one August day. And I don't even believe in blind dates. Well, not until we met.

    About our schedule, well we can't blame it naman. Practically speaking, seeing each other everyday is not a very wise idea. Anyhow, we have the weekend naman to see each other 'di ba?

    I love you! Very much! :)

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…
