Wishlist

I now have a new list of "wanna haves" -- purely items that would make my life a wee bit better to live. Not that I need a lot more than I already do, but like I said, these are "wanna haves". Would be great if some others could 1) point me to where I can get them (in the Philippines) 2) give me one of these or 3) give me ALL of these ;)

Here goes the (short) list:

1) Leather bound NIV Bible Study Guide
2) Relient K's Mmhmm
3) Tree86's Answer to the Question
4) Treo 650
5) A G2000 GC worth at least one blazer ;)

There are other things that are catching my attention right now, and all this (non)sleeping is sometimes already getting to me. Do you know the feeling of digging down deep and tapping already into your "super sayan" reserves? That happens when you're enjoying yourself working on a pet project for more than 24 hours -- then sleeping the whole day after.

Thanks to my officemates (Pabz and Crisitan) for keeping up with the code (and bug) spewing…

Whole Story

When people don't know the whole story, they assume. They take the side that they heard, which is almost always not the whole story -- or just assume that they know one side, and just stick with it. One minute you're cordial with a person, the next (when they think they know what happened) that person's a total (judging) stranger.

Perhaps we cannot take away the judging nature of people we really do not know as friends. Even if they're our friends, we can't stop them from judging you for who they think you are. And when strangers start looking at you and judging you for who they perceive you to be, then you've got yourself something hard to lose -- a reputation.

It's not easy reinventing yourself -- and even if you become successful in doing so, it's harder to shed a reputation than your clothes while you're on stage delivering a speech. When people think you're a bad person, it's hard convincing them that you're not even if you try really…

Single

I am. Yup, I am single. Not taken, not engaged, not married, and certainly available. But that's not the point of this post. The point of this post is my commitment to staying single until the Lord gives me the spouse He meant for me. And until that time, I shall be patient and do whatever the Lord asks me to do, be thankful for everything that's gone my way, and everything that's still going to come my way.

I'd like to thank everyone who's been supportive in this time of transition, and especially to Yannie for understanding. I hope everything goes well in her life, and that she will remember me as the person who tried to get her started with her walk with the Lord.

I'm actually just sneaking this in, and the schedule and deadlines aren't moving farther, so I better get to working.

CHill...
