Meron pa ring network na walang propagation delay. Yan ang network ng mga puso.

The most important thing that I learned from CS 145

The trick is to keep it balanced


We always have to be reminded to live in the present because people tend to either dwell in the past too much that keeps us from moving forward or focus on the future too much like nothing else aside from our goal matters. When we do forget to live in the present, we miss out on the chances to be happy with the thousands of little but wonderful things that come our way.

But people can get so caught up in the present that sometimes it helps to take a few moments to look back into the past or ahead into the future so we can remind ourselves how we got to where we are now and what we’re aiming for, and live in the present better.

To fall in love with life again


I embraced 2013 with the strangest yet most fortunate mix of emotions since I left my childhood aware of Santa’s non-existence. For several Christmases and New Year’s Eves, I had been too aware of what is and what isn’t that the awareness took away my spirit of merrymaking for the sake of it, that even with heaps of presents and feasts, it took more effort to be joyful than to think of what to give for next year.

Unlike those years, 2013 kicked off with me half-knowing my bucket list was getting shorter and half-guessing ways to make it longer, then shorter, then longer again.  I was convinced that the world wasn’t meant to end on December 21, 2012 for a reason. That reason was for me (and for everyone) to fall in love with life again and to simply love it like an innocent boy would to the girl he so admired.

I re-learned how generous life and its Giver is because when I did love, it showed me back love a hundred times richer than that I gave. I grew up a bit to change into someone who loved less selfishly and more blissfully. In return, life gave me more chances to be happy with those dearest to my heart – more hangouts, celebrations, surprises, music, stories, movies and cheers than I was used to. I’ve experienced lots of the best free things I could ask for and the first quarter isn’t even over yet.

On that note I make this claim to always follow my heart, to be happy with my life and to keep on falling in love with it.

This weird mix of routine and spontaneity


Today is one of those times I feel uneasy not because something scary is about to happen but because things have been strangely idle recently. Too idle, actually, that it bothers me like there’s nothing to look forward to or there’s supposed to be something important to look forward to but I screwed it up without me realizing it. Too idle that my mind is making up awful images to keep it busy.

Maybe I did do something wrong; maybe I didn’t. I feel like I’m missing out on lots of things that I can’t take back so easily. Maybe I’m being a drama queen making a fuss over this idleness. Of course, I don’t want anything bad to happen either. But there’s nothing specially good as well. Then I remember that

“When everything is uncertain, anything is possible.”

Like Maka Albarn, I gather up all my faith and hope in my fist and punch the hell out of my fear.
