Hey guys, this is just a random post. Not much "blah blah" on this don't worry (I know my posts tend to be lengthy. I will try to simmer it down I promise).
This happened to just play randomly on my ipod this afternoon. Had it for a while. Such a beautiful song. Perfect infinite moment. Just nostalgically beautiful.
Such a beautiful song to keep to myself. Enjoy!

Days Like This Lyrics Days like this.
You look up at the sky above you.
Days like this.
Yeah, You think about the ones that love you.

And all I wanna do is live my life honestly.
I just wanna wake up and see your face next to me.
Every regret I have will go set free.
It will be good for me.

That Bittersweet Achievement: Graduation

Music:Sucre


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…

Go Back to Basics: Photography 101 by Sir Nicolay

Music: Gotye (Shuffled Albums)
I started taking interest in Photography just roughly about 5 to 6 years ago. I needed something to do with my seemingly free time back then and since I already loved looking at great pictures (landscape and concert/event pictures), might as well try to take them myself. So I saved up for what was a good camera for a beginner (and what my savings could go for – thanks Mom for throwing half of the camera’s price in too haha).
I toyed with the camera at first and read a bunch of basic photography articles online. Tried most of the suggestions, made use of the manual settings, understood a thing or two about the camera, framing, lighting, angles and whatnot. After sometime, with a lot of things going on, I made that colossal mistake of putting my DSLR on automatic mode. Yes I call it colossal because if I am to use a DSLR for automatic mode, I should have just gotten a point and shoot and got away from it.

Basic Photography by Sir Nicolay

I have a very long overdue article that I need to write about this one.... I will definitely get a move on this week for this. I promise.
If you are a photography enthusiast, you will definitely not think twice about this class, or the classes that he offers after I write my experience. I promise you. haha. 
So just hang tight and I will make sure to keep my end of the bargain.
