As I get a little older, I realize life is perspectiveAnd my perspective may differ from yours. –Kendrick Lamar

Modern day attrition

Broke by a thousand fees. Death by a thousand cuts.

IMO

I have very strong opinions on social issues which I work on, as oppose to having loud ones.

Baguio is cursed

My last 4 visits to the city I once claimed my home has been marred by misfortune.  My trips to the city had to be cut short but someone dying my car breaking. I initially chalked it up to bad luck when my highschool batchmate caught a stroke while I was there. The following year, […]

EMUdeck on a Steam Deck OLED

As much as I liked the RG405M, I found it couldn’t emulate the arcade games I wanted to play to my liking; Primarily some NAOMI/NAOMI2 games and a couple switch games. I decided to skip other more powerful handhelds like the AYN Odin 2 or the Retroid Pocket 4 Pro and go straight to the […]

Spotify / Youtube offline downloads

I use spotdl which utilizes yt-dlp to download the actual songs. To download the highest quality you’ll need to have a Youtube Premium account with the audio quality set to high: Next, you’ll need to get the cookies to authenticate, I personally use Chrome on windows, you’ll need to launch Chrome with the –disable-features=LockProfileCookieDatabase to […]

Expectations are the thief of Joy

It’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove in court. –Law Abiding Citizen (2009)

It’s good until it’s not

I have a lot of feelings about my current situation in life but I don’t feel i have the energy to deal with it, But certain things aren’t elective and I either decide what to do about them or life/time will make them for me. Experience suggests that things get worse when left unsettled, so […]

Lemons and grapes

I exchange my time for money, rates are usually dictated by where you’re from and who you know… Not so much what you know. The gap between what I think I’m worth versus how much people are willing to pay me is usually great, but not as much as my need to provide and hopefully […]

The dichotomy of my outlook on life

I believe I won’t grow old and I feel that I don’t have enough time to do everything I want to accomplish in life. But ironically I do everything I can to extend the longevity of my body and work towards being financially independent for if or when I grow older. Call me a hypocrite, […]

Trading views

I traded a corner condo unit on the top floor in Manila for a house and lot near the beach in a Province where I have no relatives and barely know anyone. It’s been one of if not the most daunting decision I have made so far and by all accounts, seem to be one […]

Bearings

Treading down South of sadness.I look back North of youth & nostalgia, as the westward winds remind me of my woes. I am reminded that life isn’t east of equality.

Off the ground

New ventures are akin to lifting heavy shit off the floor for me. It’s those first few centemeters that are the most challenging… Or I would like to think so. But it gets progressively hardet when as you progress. One of the lessons sports (distance running & powerlifting) and my career has taught me is […]

Over the hill

I started coding back in 1999, when writing your media player in mIRC because my Pentium II can’t run winAMP and mIRC at the seme time was fun. Back then I didn’t see it as a career, I knew I wanted to be involved with it but didn’t really see it as a source of […]

Personal space

For the past 7 months, most of my time has been spent in this 5×5 meter space. I work, workout, eat, sleep repeat. The Pandemic changed views on a lot of things, especially housing. I used to think owning properties is much better than renting; Now not so much. I find myaelf liking the idea […]
