A glimpse into my everyday life (with some forays into work-life balance). On occasion, I post on this tag outside of my usual Saturday night schedule.

  • Three Months In

    Three months in, and I think I’m fine.

  • Locked Out

    The universe apparently has a wicked sense of humor, Or how I locked myself out of my own apartment on a public holiday.

  • The IKEA Adventure

    In which the protagonist goes through sensory overload.

  • Identity

    I am a software engineer. I’m also an amateur photographer, a writer, and a dabbler. Or, at least that’s how I view myself.

  • Week Two

    The second week: looking for apartments, and observations of weather in Sydney.

  • Firehose

    Diving into the deep end: moving into a new city, and starting a new job.

  • Public/Private

    Just what exactly am I comfortable sharing online?

  • Life Changes

    I’m moving to Sydney (finally!): what’s on my plate for the next month.

  • Nuance

    As I’ve said previously: I try to view things critically, and that means understanding that there are usually shades of gray.

  • Music

    The music I listen to; suggestions welcome.

  • Food

    I love food; it’s one of the things I splurge on, as my girlfriend can attest.

  • Cringeworthy

    I have no words to explain it, but sometimes it’s worth looking back at your own past work, cringeing all the way.

  • The Great Adventure

    The Great Adventure; or what’s going on in my life to date.

  • Passports and Visas

    On the anxiety of getting a visa as a Filipino.

  • Deadlines

    No one likes deadlines, but I find that having them forces me to get things done.

  • Figuring Out My Voice

    Getting back into the groove of writing is harder than I thought; figuring out my voice is even harder.

  • Freelancing

    Freelancing and consulting work isn’t my cup of tea, but I’ve learned a lot from it.

  • Hello, World!

    Rebooting the blog. Is this mic on?
