Jostein Gaarder said in his book Maya (I read it back in my sophomore year in college one hot summer class afternoon) "It takes billions of years to create a human being . And only a few second to die." I totally agree...... so why waste every moments we all have. Let us all savor the main course called life!
Enjoy your little moments, they are the spices in your wonderful life.
Before anything, thank you to some of you who took time and still taking time to go through the years-old articles here. Hope they are still helping. As mentioned in my last post last January 2018, I have moved some of my writings in my new website: http://www.notflataspancake.com - so any contact in terms of promotions/publishing can be coursed through there as well, if it is travel related press releases. To some of you who have been contacting me in my posted email here, my apologies for not getting back right away or for not getting through them. I have been swamped with work for a while. Anyway the reason for this post is to share some of the struggles some of us thirty-somethings have. Here goes mine, they may not be as sensible as they should be because its almost 1AM here: Relationships: I cannot imagine where to start with this one. Endless emotional discourse when you are in your 30's. Every gathering whether family or with friends would need update on your relationships.…
I never thought I would be able to stick it out for 10 years in an organization. 2 or 3 years is already long enough for me. The last job I had, I stayed for 2 years and the job before that I only stayed for a month. But of course they all have different circumstances. Looking at it, my 10 years have not been rainbows and butterflies but a weathered one. I guess when you know how to navigate through different kinds of weather, you’ll be able to handle anything that will be thrown your way. What did I learn from the past 10 years? I’ll try to sum it up to 10 to pay homage to that number. 1. Be bored, but the good kind of boredom. What do I mean by this? I learned that the way I am able to come up with ideas that can be possibly useful are during my down times. Okay let me break it down a little bit more. I get bored with some processes when they are repetitive and when that happens I try to look into how I can improve that process further to make it either easier for the people doing it…
This coming April 22, 2012 my name would be listed as one of
the graduates of Masters of Industrial Relations (Major in Human Resources
Management) from University of the Philippines School of Labor and Industrial
Relations. For almost four years (from 2007 second semester – November to 2010 second
semester). I have sat in number of classes for 3 long hours each. Armed with
only my pen and notebook and what I know from actual experience in the
industry, guided by courses I took back in my undergrad and some articles
assigned to us by our grad school professors – I survived. Not without hardships mind you. You see I have decided to
take classes back in 2007 because I felt like I have no direction in life at
all. It seemed that my undergraduate degree was not enough to get me where I hoped
to be, that the degree I have would only get me two steps forward. I wanted
more but I was afraid of what that more would be. I chose between
Organizational Psychology from a different scho…
This might be the first movie/book I will talk about thoroughly
here. I know I have 2 entries about movies (related links below this post) but
this one is different because weird as it may sound, this is close to my heart.
It is one of my favoritebooks and movies of all time. No not because
it is Emma Watson in the movie (that
is of course one of the sub reasons) but for these: I am
not THAT of a wide reader, although some would say I am a nerd (I do not refute
this by the way), but this book/movie/story is one of the best that I have read/seen.
It is honest, draws a lot of emotions, kick you in the reality shins about
adolescence, love, losing people that you hold dear, conquering your very own
demons and discovering a beautiful life outside your created shelter-walls in
your head. Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller
those characters (Sam, Charlie, Patrick and the others). A little bit of all of
them. Their stories were and are my stories. I have …
