The hardest thing for me to do is sitting still, so when I have a chance to do so, I do. When planning my first (real & no-work, no-computer) vacation, I promised myself — I will learn to just sit still.
I feel his pain. Every time we plan for a vacation, the thought of getting off the grid would briefly play with my mind. Then my senses would come around and take it back.
It’s been 4 years since I did my last post for my previous blog. In that span of time, a lot of insane but amazing things happened. I grew up. I learned a lot. I got to lead a team and take on non-technical side of things. It was fun for a while until the daily grind of running a team caught up with me. I started to miss on little things. I have never lost touch to read and dig codes but it became such a burden to me. I got lazy. Not sleep-all-day lazy just I-am-no-longer-sharp lazy. At one point, it felt like I was excused to stay sharp because I know I am doing the other important matters.
That’s why I am picking up on blogging again.
I want to stay sharp—over the past few months, I have intensely pushed myself to get back into programming and brushed up with my soft skills. I want to make this as my default setting.
I’m a critic—I am opinionated on matters that I am passionate about: operating systems, indention styles, arrangement of apps in my phone (yes, really), pretty much any thing that I can obsess with. I would to love share the things I know about them and, occasionally, accept criticisms1 from other people. :)
Lastly, I’m sure that my friends are sick and tired of me polluting their News Feed in Facebook. I know I am a few post away from being unfriended.
On to the next post!
- I am still pondering whether to allow comments or not. I like Tumblr’s reblog feature but I don’t want to experiment too much with WordPress plugins. For now, comments are off. Let’s wait and see.
