Eh-hum # 232

THIS is great news.

THIS is most definitely not.

Ganyan talaga ang buhay. Eh-hum.

Eh-hum # 231

I celebrated my birthday almost two weeks ago.

Even though I am a year older, I don't feel any different from last year. But is it funny (or not) that I will be 30 in two years time. Perhaps its true that age is just a number, what matters is how you are living your life. And I have so much to be thankful for.

Well, for one, I am back in the work force, in a government institution...again. The pay is not so good, rather, not too bad. But I am looking forward to the work I will be doing (more of the significant, less of the mundane), the people I could meet and the knowledge I could gain. I am still in that stage where I value experience over salary. Since I was, eh-hum, on "academic leave" for a year, I really have no problems starting near the starting line. But it also pays to work smart as well. Gambarou!


The heat nowadays is terrible, and I can't believe I am looking forward to the rainy season. And thanks to the unbearable warm weather, in the past few days (or nights) I have been terrorized by flying roaches. While there is no denying that I (and perhaps most of mankind) consider them pests, I can pretty much handle a crawling roach. But flying roaches are an entirely different thing. And in an attempt to make my room roach-free, I (grudgingly) cleaned my room and (happily) fumigated it with insecticide.

I pray that my normal sleeping habits return so that I won't have to wake in the wee hours of the morning just to hunt for these, uh, home invaders. OMG.

Eh-hum # 230

I am happy to announce my laptop is doing just fine.

This little incident made me more critical of the programs I want to install as well as the capacity of my HDDs. My friendly neighborhood tech support, uh, dude, told me that I should leave 1/4 of the total size of my HDD free to prevent it from crashing.

And we seriously don't want that.


I got this picture from a popular blog, and deemed it to be connected to the protests that marred the Beijing Olympics 2008's torch relay. I thought the caption for the said photograph was pretty funny.

But what is NOT funny are the controversies hounding the said torch relays. Its a pity that sensitive and political issues such as the case with Tibet and Darfur got intertwined with historic events like the Olympic Games (which aims to promote peace and brotherhood among nations through sports). It could not be helped I guess, since this year China is the host and the urgency of the said issues.

Eh-hum # 229

Its April! Which means I will be 28, really soon.

Now it's a good time for me to get my act together and seriously consider plans for the next five years. I'm really an easygoing person by nature, so this will take a lot of work. But I guess, it will be worth it. As they say, daig ng maagap ang masipag.


In other news, I'm feeling not so fine. Not because I'm ill, but my partner-in-crime is.

Yes, my one and a half year old Acer notebook went bonkers this morning, leaving me really nervous. Its only 0900, which means I have to wait for an hour before I could bug my friendly neighborhood tech support.

I hope (and pray) that this little mishap has nothing to do with the fact that yesterday morning, I decided to upgrade my RAM, or DDR2 as they call it nowadays, to 1 GB. I checked my notebook's specs/user guide, and it says that I can expand its memory up to 2 GB. And I also hope (and pray) that if there is something wrong, it won't affect my files, especially my pictures and my school data/research materials.

Will keep my fingers crossed. Haaaayy.
