I never thought I would own 2 beautiful and loving dogs. They are really great companions and they do taught me to be better in lots of things.
Adam Savage’s Commencement keynote address to Sarah Lawrence College
I actually spent an inordinate amount of time in my 20’s thinking that I was too UNspecialized.
Wanna know how to work hard? It’s not complicated. All you have to do is listen. Listen to what’s going on around you. Learn how the project you’re working on fits into the big picture. Learn how you fit in. Pay attention.
When you genuinely understand how the big picture works, you start being able to anticipate changes, adapt your behavior, or output. You do this and you will simply do your job better, and you’ll make the job of everyone around you easier.
When solving a problem as a generalist (or to use a more arcane term: a polymath), I can compare the many fields I’ve dabbled in, their techniques, their philosophies, the ways in which they alter the lens through which I see things, and I can gain a literal perspective on what I’m doing.
This process will repeat itself ad nauseum throughout your entire life. Everything you think now will likely be different in five years, and the more frequently you realize this, the better it will be for you. We are never finished products, we are all works in progress.
Remember that you have plenty of time.
Remember that you have time to figure out what you want to do. Who you need to be. Where you want to go. You have time to fail. You have time to mess up. You have time to try again. And when you mess that up, you still have time. Just so long as you’re willing to work hard.

I feel like what he said is somewhat a reflection of my life, on where am I right now.
Suddenly I feel lost.
I feel incomplete and incapable of doing anything good.
I learn skills easily. I could comprehend fast.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
I got dreams. I have set goals. But they keep on going further away from me.
The stars are changing but I must sway with the wind.
I must not lose hope.
I will work hard and I will reach my goal.
God i miss these songs. enjoy! 🙂

One of the greatest and inspirational speech I’ve ever heard.
“the sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of my character”
“the sense of family comes from the commitment we make to each other. to work through the hard times so we can enjoy the good ones that comes from the love that binds us. that’s what makes a family.”
I never knew there is a 11:11 phenomena until today. And yep, there is this thing that they call 11:11 doorway of destiny.
All I know is that when the clock strikes 11:11, make a wish and it may come true. 😀
They say that 11-11-11 marks the start of the end of Mayan calendar at 2012 and some believe that they have to prepare spiritually and mentally for the end of the world.
Who knows what would really happen next year and if the world would really end. All I hope is that there wouldn’t be any chaos and that we could still celebrate the New Year 2013 and the years after that.
When she loved me
Sarah mc lachlan
When somebody loved me, everything was beautiful
Every hour we spent together, lives within my heart
And when she was sad, I was there to dry her tears
And when she was happy, so was i, when she loved me.
Through the summer and the fall, we had each other, that was all
Just she and I together, like it was meant to be
And when she was lonely, I was there to comfort her
And I knew that she loved me.
So the years went by, I stayed the same
And she began to drift away, I was left alone
Still I waited for the day, when she’d say “i will always love you.”
Lonely and forgotten, never thought she’d look my way,
She smiled at me and held me, just like she used to do,
Like she loved me, when she loved me
When somebody loved me, everything was beautiful,
Every hour we spent together, lives within my heart
When she loved me.
Don’t let your life pass you by
weep not for memories
There are memories that are so vague in your head. You barely remember what had happened, where you went, whom you are with. The pictures are blur but the feelings seems fresh. Your heart aches for something you can’t remember, longing for something unknown.
Time goes by.
The good times you had with those people you love are all but memories you loved to reminisce. Photographs of happy moments together. Those smiles and laughters as well as the pain and tears lingers in your head. Sometimes you wish you could travel back in time to relive those moments to feel the happiness and sadness again. In some other chances, to be able to correct the mistakes that you’ve done.
Sometimes you contemplate, what could it have been if I have chosen the other path back there, down the crossroad? What could have happened? Where do I stand now? Will I be as strong as I am now? Will the journey be as spontaneous and memorable? And by destiny, will I be able to meet those people who played their parts in my life? Whom in their own little ways helped me grow.
Looking back makes you think, have I changed a lot? Did I learned the lessons that I should have learned? Did I became a lot wiser now?
It’s funny how you feel so much but you cannot say a word
You are screaming inside, but you can’t be heard
There are things that lurks in your head. Things that you wanted to say but you can’t. Maybe because of the circumstances or just maybe sometimes you are just to afraid to let it out. You don’t want to hurt anyone because you know the feeling of pain. You have felt how your hearts feels like it is being ripped off your chest. It pounds too shallow that sometimes it’s barely there and all that remained are the pain that just exploded inside of you.
There are words that are better left unspoken. There are words that needs to be expressed.
Sometimes you are too afraid to show how you feel. You choose to be mean to those people that you love. Although in your head, you’ve always wanted to hug and kiss them, show them kindness, compliment them, share them your stories about life. But in the spur of the moments, you always choose your bad side.
You oftentimes judge the people you love even if they haven’t done anything yet. You can’t moved on from the mistakes they have done. You can’t take another step further in forgetting those nightmares and start all over again. And most of the times, you feel like they are more of a stranger. You don’t know anything about them. You wanted to know more about them but your head hinders you. Your heart wants to but you don’t.
Just a step forward.
Just one little step.
An itsy bitsy baby step.
You wanted to do a lot of things.
You wish in your heart you could move forward.
You wanted to share a lot of it with that someone. You want to be able to remember them forever both the good things and the bad.
But you always choose the life without them.
I’m so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose
Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose
