First Love Never Dies

I've been so busy with my other blogs that I sort of forgot about this one. I just can't get myself to delete it.

My Profile Views

As of this writing, I've only had 305 profile views in Blogger since Feb 2005. It's kind of sad but it's not enough to dampen my spirits. I've just started with my latest blog which I think will be pretty interesting. I'll post the link once I've had a few more posts.

I just found this blog and it's soooo funny. Well, it's funny in a shallow kind of way. But it's very interesting to see what secrets people hide. This is going to be one of my favorite sites from now on, PostSecret.

I have a dream...

In one of my earlier posts I said I wanted to be Google-able and I was able to do it. Actually, when you search for my name now, it results in my own post. But that doesn't matter because I was able to do it.

My next goal is a little different. I want to be Wikipedia-ed. (I'm inventing words but you know what I mean) I won't submit my own wiki but I need to do something significant enough for me to be Wikipedia-ed. I won't put a deadline because I don't know how long it would actually take. I can probably do something drastic like jump off from the tallest building in the Philippines while wearing a gorilla costume but I may end up in a news website instead of Wikipedia and I won't get another chance. Anyway, wish me luck.

Moving Out III

I still haven't moved out. It's so frustrating!

I've beat my old record! I'm now down to 252 seconds for the expert stage in Minesweeper. It is quite long but then again I'm using a touchpad and not a mouse.

More of my blogs...

I started with blogs in Friendster and MySpace. They were more like online diaries than blogs. They were really more for my use than anything else.

Then I started with this blog. Which only got 1 post until a year after. I changed the name to Long Lost Blogger since then because I've been gone for a year.

Then I made a niche blog about poker. It's centered more on my poker experiences and Philippine poker in general. You can read it at http://finaltabledonkey.blogspot.com

Then there was the experiment we were trying to do in Wordpress. It didn't click as I thought it would which is why I won't post the URL. :)

Now just a few minutes ago, I made another blog for the information/facts/trivia I don't have any use for. I wanted to find a way to use them and now I do. So if you have time, also visit http://howtoseemsmart.blogspot.com

Ateneo wins againts La Salle

Ateneo wins their first UAAP game against La Salle! The match was one of the best Ateneo vs La Salle games ever. After multiple deadlocks, multiple lead changes, a few technical fouls, and a lot of great plays, Ateneo bested La Salle by 6 points. Go Ateneo!

Burn Out

How do you differentiate the need to have a vacation or if you need another job?
I know I need a vacation. I've worked in a call center for close to 5 years and the longest vacation I've had was 5 days. Given that we work 24/7/365, there really isn't enough time to separate myself from work. It doesn't make a difference if it's Holy Week, Christmas, New Year. We don't have any long weekends. And even if we happen to be on day off for a particular holiday, some of our officemates aren't. There's never a chance to be with the officemates outside of work.
Even if I did go on a long leave from work, the actual work that I need to do will still pile up. Operations do not stop when we're away and we need to be constantly on call. This defeats the purpose of taking time off from work in the first place. Wich is why I refuse to check my work email when I'm on day off. I want to make sure I leave anything work related in the office. It has it's disadvantages but I don't want to work when I'm off.
