You’ll never really feel the impact or effect of wars, until it hits close to home. I mean, I’ve always known that people die in wars but it never felt like it could actually happen to someone I know. Before this, war was just a concept for me, I guess.
And Kuya JD and I might not have been friends, but he is real to me. We came from the same high school and community, where inter-batch ties are as close as it can get and you always have the feeling that people from there are your family or something to that effect.
I am deeply saddened by this. Again, fuck you, war.
I know this is delayed, but I didn't have access to a decent and unblocked Internet access for the past few days
Rest in peace Steve Jobs. I know there have been a million and one tributes and posts about him but I just feel like I need to give my own too.
I’ve owned my Macbook for 4 years now and anyone who knows me, know that I have the most abused Mac ever. My Mac’s more off white now than white actually, and my brother said that’s pretty much the understatement of the year. But it’s been with me for 4 long years and in those years, it has been the single most consistent thing in my life. Without being too over dramatic about it, I have survived a lot of things with my Mac still hanging with me and I can’t imagine it any other way. I love my Mac.
And I also love my iPods. There have been way too many days that I wouldn’t have survived without it. Including my 42 km run.
So yes, thank you dear sir for having a huge impact in my, and everyone else’s life through your products and innovation and for being an inspiration by being yourself.
Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.
I decided that I didn’t really care, because this is what I want to do. if I try my best and fail, well, I’ve tried my best.
I know this week will be awesome because it kicks off with the birthday of the person I want to be, when I grow up. She inspires me to work harder than anyone else, strive for perfection and be a female version of a hustla HAHAHAHAHA. HAPPPY BIRTHDAAAAY QUEEN BEYONCE!
You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts.
You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth.
