Kahapon


Ngayon ko lang naisip na wala pala tayong picture kahapon.
Nakalimutan ko na naman.
Gaya ng ibang mga pagkakataon na magkasama tayo,
ang naiwang alaala nito di na naman natin mahawakan.
Siguro ok lang din yun,
mas marami pa ngang masasayang karanasan pero walang naiwang bakas.
Sana lang di natin malimot kahit magbago ang lahat bukas.
Sana hindi ko makalimutan kung paano ka ngumiti kahapon kahit napakarami mong problema.
Sana nararamdaman din nila ang laman ng puso mong baon sa mga hamon pero nananatili sa tama.
Hindi kita iiwan hanggang sa pagtanda natin at kahit ano pang sabihin nila,
ibibigay ko lahat ng natitirang oras maging masaya ka lang.

I’m a person who feels good at being better than someone else


I’m all pumped up to code again, and the explanation is either what was said in the title or in the quote. I know that sounds horrible, and I realized how horrible I was when I felt good about being better than someone else. I just wanted to share that, and I hope that you aren’t the least horrible as I am.

How I Learned that Hydrology Makes for a Good Vacation


Just when I thought that my hardcore studying days are over (anything that has to do with computations is already hardcore), I got myself into a project that requires me to read on the interpretation and analysis of maps based on weather data. Unfortunately, I haven’t found or realized a complete solution to this task until now simply because I do not fully understand it. While I was searching for materials on the net, I stumbled upon this hydrology project training module from The Netherlands, and it says there clearly that the target readers of this module are hydrologists, assistant hydrologists and data processing center managers, none of which I can identify with. It’s one thing to translate features and use cases from clients into more formal software requirements; it’s another to guess what features they want exactly and do each of them hoping that you were able to guess it right. The simpler something is said in layman terms, the tougher it is to understand it in a language that will help you work on it.

Today the whole team, except me, went out [team building] to the beach. Aside from the fact that it’d be a bother asking for permission to go on this trip, I prefer to work today at home than to go there because I just didn’t feel like it. Plus, if I work today I can rest my brain an entire day off of work tomorrow or on Sunday, which I can spend watching movies and food tripping with my best bud whom I haven’t seen for so long until yesterday when he surprised me at school/work after following me around the campus on stealth mode (or maybe I was just in my daydream mode).

I am writing this post just now so I can do something other than force my brain to make sense of these math, map and weather terms, equations and figures to put them into code. Why am I doing this again? It’s Artsy Adventure Time!

My Adventure Time Playlist that draws my attention away from interpolation, isolines and whatnot:

I also found out that the voice of Marceline the Vampire Queen was Olivia Olson’s, the same singer who plays Vanessa Doofenschmirtz in Phineas and Ferb, hence the soulful catchy voice. Hope these songs would make your day too.

Having Done Something and The Cartoons of Awesome Randomness List


I wasn’t able to accomplish anything again today when I got back to work. I spent most of the day setting up the tools that I needed to work on the project the same way that I do using my laptop, but it wasn’t successful. When I got home I’m glad to have done at least something from the now-longer to-do list, which is to fix a new bug on the live site. Very minor but I’m glad to have fixed it still. Besides, it is Google’s fault.

The point of this post is… nada. I just wanted to savor the feeling of having done something.

Here’s the list of cartoons of awesome randomness, so awesome they even have their own wikis (others are of annoying randomness):

I just realized this a while ago while watching Adventure Time and Gumball. These reminded me of my then-dream to make a cartoon series. I would have to thank Cartoon Network for these even if their other cartoons are just blah.
