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! :)

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…

A Passion Project

I was so moved today by the prospect of a passion project that I took some time on a Friday night to get it done. Let me present the #RedJeans project over at redjeans.org. I've found myself wanting to work on a project that came purely from the heart and one that was very dear to me, something that is personal, and connects with a larger community of people in the world.
The idea for redjeans.org came to me as a hint when I was writing up my reflection for 2018. I realised that I didn't spend quite as much time identifying with and working with a community. I did a bit of soul-searching and found that one of the activities I really enjoyed and cherished in years past is donating blood -- and I keep wondering why not more people do it. It was an idle thought but then a conversation with someone where I described why I wrote down "donate blood more often" in 2019 became an idea where instead of just me doing it, how about if I get my friends to do it too?

I left it a…
