the good and the bad

today might just be like any other day when you have a mix of the good and the bad.

i didn’t sleep well. by that i mean i slept late and woke up early but not early enough. i still didn’t get enough sleep so i’ve been having sleep debt. nape feeling stiff and eyes burn a bit. even feel like starting to get stuffy in the nose.

the good part is i’m making good progress on my programming in scilab. feeling proud, actually. even if i’m just merely translating my boss’ programs from another language. still, it feels fulfilling.

one bad thing. bills due for payment.

good thing we finally have our salary today. yey!

bad thing is it all went to paying the credit card bill. boo!

another good news is that A is in high spirits. she’s been stressed and getting sick with work and it’s great to “hear” her on our chat today that she’s feeling quite swell. i hope this continues.

it’s almost time to go home and it’s still raining. but it’s a good thing i used my trekking sandals! i love them!

but generally, i’m happy.

how did your day go? with its own ups and downs as well?

gotta keep blogging!

i’m trying to rekindle the fire of blogging. so i’ll be posting everyday things again which probably means most of the coming posts will be quite short (but not so sweet) and primarily gibberish. 🙂 so bear with me.

day 2 on listening to the oral arguments in the supreme court on the RH Law. deyum, CJ Serreno, that was an awful hard question! that was a shocker. still, i needed a few minutes to formulate a good answer. proves what a great mind replaced CJ Corona. touche. (this was day 1 with Atty. Concepcion Noche). maybe i’ll do a longer post on my own answers. 🙂

day 2 with Atty. Liban and i think the counsel of the petitioners are good but kinda slow. and sometimes a bit irresponsible with their words. though quite exaggeratedly represented in mainstream media, those things coming out of atty. liban’s mouth about maternal deaths were cringe-worthy to me! *sigh* WORDS are important, atty. liban. this is how we are branded as narrow-minded… not selecting words properly to get our messages across.

and in other matters, i thought i was going to be comfortable with python as a programming language. then i tinkered with scilab today and can’t seem to decide which path to take. heto na naman ako sa “jack of all trades, master of none” thing ko. puro basic knowledge, walang expertise. medyo mahirap yata yung ganun.

staring blankly

i’m expecting this to happen to me today and tomorrow. why? i just downloaded the recorded oral arguments of the supreme court on the RH Law and plan to listen to them in my commute. i just listened to the first 55 minutes of the first day (July 9, 2013) and it was an interesting talk on “when does life begin?”. i wish i could take down notes on what is being said and pick the minds of those reacting on twitter. of course, i have my religious side on the matter but i’m curious.

Pacific Rim is Awesome!

before anything else: SPOILER ALERT!!!

After attending the Latin Mass in Sto. Domingo Church, A and I decided to have the rest of Sunday in a place we’ve not been to for quite some time now since our big day.

we went to SM North via jeepney from Sto. Domingo Church and we really wanted to watch Despicable Me 2 because of the minions! but the earlier screening times were full (e.g. 5:40 PM was full when we arrived around 4pm) but other good movies were available and Pacific Rim was the latest of the movies to come out.

we went in earlier than usual since it was free-seating (no assigned seats) so to pick the good ones, you had to be one of the first ones.

everyone is blaming everyone else

just recently, like maybe 2 weeks, some reactions to news have been bothering me. first was the planned relocation of informal settlers along Metro Manila’s rivers and second is the proposed implementation of 4-digit number coding. they have their good points and bad but the feral reaction to these things is what bugs me the most.

first off, relocation of squatters is a good thing for everyone. poor families are evacuated from hazardous locations prone to flooding, the rest of metro manila gets better drainage, less trash, healthier environment. it looks like a win-win situation. but some disagree. enter bianca gonzalez and her tweet. and being one of the new pinoy “thinking class”, she seems to have completely understood the plight of the middle class against the free-loading poor.
