To Graduate: No Hope

This is one of the most unforgettable year in my life.
It'll be the first day of march next week. I'm sure most students are rejoicing for it means the end of the semester ,which also means the start of summer. But for me and my classmates, pressure pressed us more. Hopes in our hearts starts to deteriorate. Chances of graduating this semester decreases as the days move on. So sad but must be faced with a strong soul. A lot of requirements are still needed to be fulfilled. And I don't think I could passed it all. I know it's all my fault but regret has no place in my heart. Pressures are more on me than blaming myself or anybody else. Anyways my only console is that, successful people don't need to graduate on time, they take things slowly bu t surely.

The Oscars

Have you watched the Academy Awards?
Maybe the world stopped for a couple of hours just to witness the one of the most glamorous events in the world. Even I was very excited this morning on who will receive the prestigious trophy of Oscars. I have my own bets and I wasn't failed on choosing them for most of them garnered the awards. My personal favorite movie, Slumdog Millionaire received 8 major awards and that's worth a celebration for me. Sean Penn got the Best Actor trophy for his role in the movie "Milk". I believe he deserve really the Oscars. I first knew him when he played the role as "sam" in "I am Sam". That movie really moved me in my sit. I wish I have the chance to be on the venue. But I know it'll be all in my dreams.

Safe Surf

In today's internet generation where almost everybody knows how to surf the internet, security is one of the factors that must be considered. Sparing yourself from fraudulent e-mails, spams, scams and the likes is your responsibility. "Hackers" are all over the world and ready to do devastating acts unto anybody. The very key for a hacker to his prospects is the proxy IP address. So be careful in surfing the net. Never exploit things. Be a responsible internet surfer before it's too late.

Who Killed Grandpa?

This is a very simple mind game.
At a circle house, there lived family. The mother, father, grandpa, grandma, a 7-year old boy, and his big sister. One day the grandpa was murdered. The detective asked them one by one. The father said he was at the office, the grandma said she was so busy reading books at the corner, the little boy was at school. And his sister was in the bathroom while the mother was watching TV.
Now, who killed the grandpa? Justify your answer.

What is an "EMO" to You?

What should I feel when they call me “emo”? How should I react?
When somebody call you such, what does it mean to you? Emotional? Yes, I am. But, they’ve never seen me crying. I don’t look lonely either. Maybe because of my words?, but I believe, it is not enough. I don’t wanna be called such. I don’t know why I feel irritated and pissed whenever they label me that. Will I be angry which sometimes I am. Or just don’t mind them and not get affected at all? All I know is that even if I’m lonely, I hide it. Even if I am sad, I am not weak. And that my patience has an end.

Lost your PR?

How important is Page Rank to you?
I guess, everybody who owns a site wishes to have a higher PR? Why? Well, of course it is one of the measures on how successful your site is. When I started blogging, I don't have any idea about it until my blogger friend told me about it. So I was so determined to update my blog, do some exchange of links, and the likes. I wasn't failed, Google gave me a PR 2. The satisfaction was immeasurable that time when I knew about it. I know for the fact that it isn't permanent for anytime it will be taken back or if lucky be better. So, to avoid losing my PR, I did all the things I have to do and avoid posting all the stuffs that will trigger the taking back of my rank. But last day, it was so dismaying to know, I went back to PR 0. I really don't know the reason, for my visits are a lot better than before. I got no paid post that Google can track, for I only have those that have no trackers. I'm really disappointed. The feeling is like a slap on the face, very depressing. But on mind, there's someone that tells me that it's just a number. Hell with that PR. As long as I have my blog that I can use to convey what's on my mind and be an outlet of my emotions, I'm still a blogger at the end of the day.

Life is Unfair

Have you dreamt of getting rich?
I don’t wanna sound hypocrite so I admit that I am one of those who dreamed of owning vast farms, condominium units, sports car, bloated bank accounts and successful business venture. But I know that it’ll only be in my dreams. I am just a nobody who own nothing except for some piece of cheap Chinese junks. I don’t even have my own PC knowing the fact that I am taking up a computer-related course. I once own a given laptop but somebody took it away. And I can do nothing against that somebody, for that somebody is my family. What I really considered mine is my passion in writing. Sometimes I even feel like giving up my hobby in blogging for I have to walk far just to rent an internet-connected PC to satisfy the call of passion. Can you now blame me why I call life unjust? Maybe others would say that I have the shallowest reasons on why I’m calling life such. But I know that they’ll never understand me unless they’ll step into my shoes and have a taste of my miserable life. I know that I am not the poorest entity in this world, but the miseries I felt and the hardships I’ve experienced are enough for me to give up. But I must still have hope, for my family depends unto me. If I end this all, my family’s future will also come to its end.

How Did You Spend Your Valentines Day?

How did you celebrate your Valentines Day?
I'm sure most of you spent the day with your special someone, your friends and your family may be. I planned to spend the day with my girlfriend only. But the plan was forgotten for we've celebrated it with our friends. I wish I have some photos to post but my friend who has it hasn't shared it yet to me. I'm expecting that if we'll celebrate it with our friends, my day will be ruined. But what happened was the opposite. It was one of the happiest valentines I have ever experienced. We went to the mall and watch an acoustic competition where my girl's sister is one of the competitors. We had a dinner then we went to CALTEX (a gas station/bar) to end the day with beers (hehehe). It was one of the few days that I felt happiness. I went home 1:00 in the morning bringing the memories of the day.

"Love of Siam"

Have you ever experienced being moved by a movie that you've expected will never moved you?
Have you ever watched "Sassy Girl", "Windstruck", and "The Classic". These are the few movies that really made me feel that love is really something. Aside from Filipino and Hollywood movies, I'm fond of watching Korean movies. Why? Because it's so emotional, very true and really moving. Movies that are you can never forget as long as you live and you'll never tired of watching it all over again.
My very close friend introduced a movie that is a "never-heard" to me. The title is "Love of Siam" and from the title alone you one can say that it's a Thai movie. I've never watch any Thai movie except "Ong-Bak" and the original version of "Shutter". I got curious about it so I ended up watching the movie along with my friends. I tell you, the story is perfect. It really talks about reality. The background music is very match to the scene. Even if the movie is 150 minutes long, no boring moment, I tell you. You can pick up a lot of lessons and heart-melting lines from the movie. You gotta watch it for I'm sure you'll love it. A salute to the director and the story-maker of the movie. And to the actors as well for they fairly acted the roles. "Love of Siam" is now at the top of my "Most favorite movies" I've ever watched so far.

Suicide Attempts

Why am I feeling this way?
Let me ask you, is it normal to think about ending yourself, committing suicide? Maybe you'll say, no, it's not. Loneliness kills me. I can't handle problems. I have a lot of anxieties. I can always remember what my Psychology teacher said, that there is really something wrong with me. Well, of course I believe I'm not insane. It's just that I always think of ending my life whenever I'm alone and my mind is loaded with problems, lots of problems.
But I am doing my best not to think about it. I always mingle with my friends even if I don't feel it. It's just that I can't help it. I really don't know how long can handle this thoughts and not do acts that will devastate me. I'm still hopeful that as I get more mature, all this thoughts will be buried into the deepest pocket in my memory and whenever I'll remember it, I'll just laugh about it.

I'm Alone

I woke lousy this day. I don't even feel like going to school. I can't explain it but I felt like I haven't eaten for a whole week for I really don't have energy to do my daily routine. But you know, even if I felt that way, I still went to school or else I'll end up listening to my mom nagging. In school, I felt very alone even if my classmates are around me. I don't know if this is a sign of insanity, which I hope is not. Or it is just simply a part of lousy day. But what is the best thing is I survived the day. I wasn't complaining about my day for I've learned a lesson still. And the lesson is, it's all about mind that matters. My friends told me that it was all my feeling. I am not really alone. I have friends, lots of them.

A Bite of Astronomy

Who loves stars? If you do, then this is for you. I'm sure everybody is astonished when we look up in a fair night sky with stars glowing like diamonds of high value. It is said that tonight will be the night for astronomy enthusiasts. A Penumbral Eclipse will occur this night and I can't wait for it. Anyway, do you what is this penumbral eclipse? As far as my research is concern, it occurs when the moon passes through Earth's penumbral shadow and these events are of only academic interest because they are subtle and hard to observe. According to my reading this tonight's occurrence is hard to see with our naked eye. Especially the weather condition isn't that fair. I really hope that I'll see it this night though it sounds impossible for it's kinda raining outside. This is my contribution in tonight's history.

Looking for Affordable Eyeglasses

I am a 4rth Year Bachelor of Science in Information Technology student. So as expected, I spend a lot of hours facing my computer and reading relative books. But I wasn't thinking that it will have an effect to my health, most especially to my eyes. I wasn't responsible enough to be aware about this effects and how to prevent it to occur. So now, my friends told me that I should wear eyeglasses. They said that it is one of the best eye-problem solutions to have.

The problem is, I don't wanna wear eyeglasses. Why? For I believe that it will make me look older. But that was before. Now I discovered that there are eye wears that are fashionable and very trendy, that if you wear, you'll even look smarter or "fashionista". Have you guys ever heard about Zenni Optical? In an article in New York Times that tackles about how to have eyeglasses at a very reasonable price, Zenni Optical was cited. Why? Because according to the article, they offer cheap but trendy eyeglasses. They are one of the best opticals in the globe to be considered when you're looking for affordable eye wears.

Now, blurry eyes are a problem no more to me. Eyeglasses are really a big help and I thank my friends for the advice they gave. Protect your sight for it is the window to our soul. Never devastate it.

What is a Polyglot?

What is a polyglot?
I am so astonish with what these people can do. In my research in the net, I've found out what a polyglot is. As far as my research is concern, a polyglot is somebody who is capable of speaking or writing a lot of languages. In short, linguists. I saw a TV special here in the Philippines that features these people. I am so amazed with this people and how they developed their skills. Though for others, it is a question of nationalism. But being nationalistic or patriotic, it doesn't mean that you are not allowed to study or learn any other languages. Specially, in the midst of competition in job hunting, where employers hire those who are not just eloquent in English but of other language, we really need to be skilled enough. Maybe you'll ask how they acquired this amazing skill. Some got it thru community immersion, which means they've live in that particular place where they've got the language. While others really went thru trainings. I swear to myself that I'll really take seriously my interest in Japanese Language. Even if its just self-learning, but at least I'm trying my very best to achieve this goal that could possible bring fortune to me.

Prepare for Your Valentine

Valentines Day is fast approaching. And I know that most of us are very much agitated for this day to come. But the question is, are you well prepared for it? A lot of my friends already have plans on where to go for their group date. Some have prepared cards and ordered in advance flowers for their loved ones. But they said, physically they are not. During Valentines Day, cards, flowers, chocolates, and the likes are important. But your presence is what matters most. So, you got to prepare yourself.

What are the major problems that you have when it comes to your physique? Well I'm sure like me, ACNE is a major problem. It is so disgusting. It sometimes triggers you to lower your self-esteem. I'm sure we got the same feelings. But now, it is a problem no more. A lot of Acne Products are very much available. Just be sure that the product's name is reliable and would not cause any worse. Never compromise. Enjoy your valentine. Prepare yourself now while you still have time.

I Wanna Die

You know what I feel right now? I really wanna die. Tomorrow will have a debate in class. But that's not the reason why I wanna end my miserable life. I woke this morning with a smile. I really thought and expected that I'll end this day with the sweetest smile I have. But what happened is the opposite. Am I really assuming? People tend to misunderstood me. They don't know me. Even a piece of me, they got no knowledge at all. So why judge? I understand them. But I don't know how long will my patience take me. Any help? I want to cry, but I don't want to see others that I'm crying. I am not weak. I am not coward.

Anime Lovers

In this generation, who does not like or even know anime? Even if it is impossible that there is still who does not know them, I'll tell what and who are they? Anime is associated mainly on Japanese animation. It is characterized by stylized colorful art and often of adult themes. Best examples of these are the ever famous "Ghost Fighter" and "Naruto".
I grew up watching animes. That is why, I've been very fond of watching such shows. I will never forget my favorite charcters. Some of them are Eugene of Ghostfighter, Gohan of Dragonball and Conan of Detective Conan. I have a lot of friends who share the same likes with me in terms of animes. Well, that is a good thing for we can share stories without feeling them bored. Because of the advent of technology, people with the same likes and hobbies can now interact with each other even if they are hundreds miles away from each other. For instance, if you are an anime fanatic, you can chit-chat with anime fanatics to thru Anime Chat. It was introduced to me by my friend who will die for anime dvds. It was fun. You'll never bore yourself there. You know the feeling that you are in a world where animes really live. So, stick to your thing. Always remember that you never live alone, interact to those people who have the same interests as you.

Do you know Mark Mejia, the little boy who defeated David Archuleta before in an International Star Search? I was curious about him so I looked up him on the net. But sadly, I wasn't able to find him. For at first I don't know him by his name but only the knowledge that he defeated David A. So I end up looking for him in youtube. And I found his video with his brothers I guess. They've sang a very heart melting song. It was a cover of a song of Babyface, Everytime I Close My Eyes. I swear, it's very lovely to hear. I was not contented with their videos, so I still browsed. Till I found this video of Jason Mraz and Colbie Caliat with their song "Lucky". I thought it was just a so-so song, never worthy of my time and my attention. But I was wrong. It was one of the best songs I've heard. You must listen to it yourself. It's so lovely. Hahay..I now miss my special girl. I love her. I feel now so lucky.

SEO? What About It?

Do you know what SEO means?
We've got a class today in E-Commerce and our professor mentioned about SEO which stands for Search Engine Optimization. She said that for us to be a successful E-Commerce developer, we must exploit the said technology. She also mentioned about SEO Management Services. The said service provides or helps you in optimizing search engines. It helps your site to gain traffic so whenever somebody searches the web, your site will be listed on the top. I really wish that after developing our site, we'll work in search engine optimization for us to be successful in the field we opted to be.

Truly Majestic!

Iligan City, Philippines - Maria Christina Falls, dubbed as the "Fountainhead of Progress" and the "Mother of Industry". This is the majestic waterfalls of Iligan. Believe it or not, I was born and raise in Iligan, which means that I've been living here for 19 years, but I wasn't able to visit this site until I got 19. I'm just contented hearing about this majestic site. Until one time I was invited by a friend to do falls hopping. I was very astonished when I visited this falls though the blast of the water is not in its full mode for it is controlled by a dam. But still its very amazing, I swear. You've got to visit this falls to see how wonderful our world is. Truly Majestic!

Looking for Blog Themes

I thought that being a blogger is an easy hobby. I thought it will just need interest, your ideas and your burning passion to start blogging. But I was wrong. It needs technical ideas in order to have a very interesting blog. You need to consider a lot of factors. For instance you have to look for better layouts, better templates and gadgets to include in your blog. Looking for those things is not easy task. It needs a lot of web searching and of course patience not to feel tired and bored about it. If your using wordpress as your domain, a lot of wordpress themes are very much available in the web waiting for you to be searched. Sites offers you a lot of themes that suits your interest, your taste and even your personality. All of these themes are just a click a way. I thought that all of the customized themes are for purchase. But when I searched for free ones, I was not failed. A lot of free wordpress themes are also made available also in order to sustain the needs of the bloggers like me. So there's no reason to stick to your blog's theme if you feel like you never like it. Go search for your bet themes. Remember, it is all about patience and your passion.

My Blog, My Life

Most of the bloggers I know have their own internet connection at home. They say that it is one of the requisites in order to be a certified blogger. Lucky for those who have their connection at home. They don't need to queue in internet cafes just to rent for a PC and enjoy blogging. My story is very different. Maybe I am one of those bloggers who still patient enough to go to cafes and do the hobby. I have to walk from home to this computer house just to write. It takes a vigorous passion just to be able to sustain this routine. Yes, at first I was motivated to do blogging for the reward that it can offer to me as a writer. But I learned to love it. I feel like I'll be sick if I miss one day posting in my blog. Though I don't have the equipment to sustain this intelligent hobby I consider, I still hopeful that I'll never be tired. I love blogging. Blogging is part of my life. Without it, I will be a man walking in one leg.

Being An Addict

What makes you addicted? Or are you addicted on doing or having something?

When people hear the word "addict" or "addicted", they always think of it as a negative situation. It is often associated with illegal drugs addiction or smoking inclination. But I believe, addiction comes in two forms, the positive one and the other side. For instance, I am addicted to "writing" or "blogging" and it doesn't bring any bad effects to me. So that's the good side of being addicted to something. But on the other hand, being addicted on something in which in a way brings a lot of bad effects into yourself is the negative side of addiction. This is now the time when the person needs addiction recovery. If you feel like being inclined into doing something in which you feel has done devastation to you, stop doing it. Love yourself, never indulge on something that'll bring you harm. Life is so short, so live your life to the fullest.

I'm Pissed

They say that I am too emotional. They say that I am too weak. They say that I am coward. They say that I am a loser. But I am not. I may be crying but I am not too over with it. I may be sad but I am not coward, I am not weak. I take all those comments with an open mind. Thinking that they'll be over it to. But I never expected that my patience with this matter has and end. Yes I am pissed. I am annoyed. I wanna cry out. But I don't want anybody to hear this my mourn. They just don't know how victorious I am. They just don't know how brave I am. If I just have a chance to tell the world that the true loser are those people who couldn't understand me, I'll grab it as if I'm yearning for it. Yes, I wanna fit in. Who doesn't wanna fit? But fitting in means pretending to like what you really don't. Fitting comes with going with the flow even if your current is the opposite with it. When this will end?

Importance of Blog Directory

When I started blogging, the first tip that my blogger friend told me is that, I must register my blog into blog directories. More directories registered the better. I ask him, what's with a blog directory that a blogger must register himself? Well, he logically said that for a blog to be known and be recorded, it must be registered. Yeah, he's very right. As what they say, "No man is an island" and that applies to blogging. You should indulge your blog as a blogger in to different directories. It's like registering yourself before entering into a community. Blog directory offers you convenience. You can easily submit your blog. It also helps in driving traffic into your site. They choose a blog of the day in which determined by the unique visitors you have. And the chosen one will get the traffic of the directory itself. To sum it up, blog directory is a great tool in enhancing you daily traffic which determines how successful you are as a blogger.
