A Job and the Extras

I'm having three jobs at the moment - I'm a C++ developer, a researcher, and a cosmetic dealer at the same time. I'm real proud I still have time for my friends, to communicate with my family, and to care for myself. Did you ever have a similar experience like mine? Working multiple jobs? It really is not a walk in the park, but the action takes your mind off things.

I remember when I was still teaching (previous sem) and how I was very eager in earning extra money that I just dived into the single opportunity that was offered to me. And since it would be hitting two birds with a single stone (added professional experience and extra pay), I thought it would be worth the effort. Every tuesdays and thursdays, I climbed five floors and had to prepare lesson plans every weekend. I had to prepare myself mentally and emotionally - face my rowdy and unrelentful class. When it was over, I was real glad. But I admit, I miss the challenge. I was glad I was successful in teaching C to my class.

Whatever jobs we have, we should be grateful. Having jobs means you are important, and you are needed. Be happy. :)

Preparing for the Inevitable

When I was still young (well I'm still young but not that young ... hmm, it was hard to admit that part), I dreamt of becoming a nurse. Then I upgraded that dream, I yearned to become a doctor. And when I grew up, I ceased all dreams, and practicality invaded me.

When we are still children, we can dream endlessly - for thinking of practicality is not yet in our spheres. Aspiring to become an astronaut? Why not? Dreaming as a child is endless, everything seems possible. We plow through life propagated by our wondrous dreams and never thinking of giving up.

I wish I could still coax the child in me and relive my dreams. What I am planning for my future is a practical approach, but I still could not deny that it is a part of my dream, a dream I lovingly toiled eversince I was a child. That dream of going out of my box, my sphere of comfort, and attack the world of uncertainties. I am preparing for the inevitable, and letting my soul reach for that dream, and relishing the thought of even just being able to touch the silver lining of the cloud.

Dreams propagate us to live, but living catapults us to our dreams. Never cease dreaming.

Back from the Dead


I have just replaced my monitor - it is nearly dying. So now, I am staring at a very bright monitor and I love it!

I am again resurrecting this blogsite. I temporarily moved to wordpress but I was having a hard time uploading pictures so I reunited with my old blog. It's nice to discover that blogger is improving their features - we could already switch around blog components, and have more control on our layouts! Good for them and good for us! :) [If you wanna see my wordpress account, go visit waxiedoodle.wordpress.com]

The other week, I was forced to stay home due to measles attack. And I really hated it - if I'm on my bed, it is because I want to be on bed not because of some sickness. But I really had not choice but to stay home and stare at the walls all day. I did not have enough strength to plug my laptop and do some surfing. I just - wasted time and stared at the walls all day. Well not really all day - just around 6 hours. LOL. Still the same.

I was browsing through some blogsites a few hours ago when I accidentally came through an article about a guy who ate 20 kilos of human meat. This was the guy -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armin_Meiwes. I couldn't imagine myself eating human fingers or a part of one's butt! Yuck!! Even if I would be dying and there'd be a human corpse around, I would never never never eat even a nibble of it. Never never. I swear. I wouldn't even eat a part of my pet rabbit - and more so of human flesh!

Then I became more curious of this cannibalism thing. So I searched more on wikipedia and found this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannibalism . Take a closer picture at the right and you can observe the image above on cannibalism and another image below on Cuisine. What da!!? They are relating Cannibalism and Cuisine!!! LOL. What is this, dining at its finest?

I really am being useless today. I am again fighting a bout of fever, and I still have some other stuff to do in my "extra" work [To earn extra money for Christmas to buy that long-wished camera]. I hate being useless. But I really cannot think well.

Thank God! The affidavit of support from my Tita Nora already arrived! :D Wee!!! I don't feel that sick anymore! :)
