I can’t stand to fly… I’m not that naive. I’m just out to find… The better part of me.
It may sound absurd, but don’t be naive. Even heroes have the right to bleed. I maybe disturbed, but won’t you concede…
It’s not easy to be me.
I lie down in bed and listen to Prince in my headphones, concentrating on this strange unceasing music. The batteries run out in the middle of ‘Little Red Corvette’, the music disappearing like it’s been swallowed up by quicksand. I yank off my headphones and listen…
Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.

Drivin’ alone northbound in the wee hours of the morning along Emilio Aguinaldo Highway. Windows down, one hand on the steering wheel, the other holding a cold can of coffee. Wave after wave of wind and nostalgia hits me in perfect synchronicity. It must be the familiarity of the place because memories flashed before my eyes and I can’t help but smile and remember this certain song…
Now that we’re here… it’s so far away
All the struggle that we thought was in vain
And all the mistakes, one life contained
They all finally start to go away
And now that we’re here… so far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive and I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today.
My mind wondered about the decisions I’ve made in my life and to my surprise and chagrin, I have no remorse or regrets… anymore.
Except for one…
Sobrang kakaisip ko, lumagpas ako dun sa lilikuan ko sa Zapote T_T AMF!
Emilio Aguinaldo Highway | 2:30 AM
What happened to you this morning began many ages ago…
I will tell you everything, but it must be a trade. For this knowledge, you will give up your freedom. After tonight, you will become one of us or go into hiding. In any case, you will spend your whole life looking over your shoulder. You will be a part of a terrible drama… one that there is no way of exiting completely. It may sound extreme, but once you know the truth, your life will change irrevocably. There is no going back.

I just watched a replay of The Big Bang Theory s04e03 last night before scooting off to work. Sheldon and Amy’s conversation kept playing on my mind the whole night. This is about a game they invented called Counterfactuals.
Basically they change one key aspect in known history and post questions to one another as to how the world might be, based on that one different key aspect. The one who answers must defend his/her “theory” using scientific facts or data.
Here are some of the dialogues…
Amy: In a world where the rhinoceros is our domesticated pets, who wins the 2nd world war?
Sheldon: Kenya rises to power on the export of rhinoceroses, a central African power block is formed, colonizing North Africa and Europe. When war breaks out, no one can afford the luxury of a rhino. Kenya withers, Uganda triumphs.
Amy: Correct. My turn.
Sheldon: In a world where mankind is ruled by giant, intelligent beavers, what food is no longer consumed?
Lenard: Uhhh.. a BLT where B stands for beaver?
Sheldon: Lenard be serious, we’re playing a game here.
Lenard: I can figure this out. Lets see, uhhhm well, beavers eat tree bark, the only tree bark I know that humans consume is cinnamon, so I’ll say cinnamon!
Sheldon: Incorrect. Obviously, the answer is Cheese Danish.
Amy: In a world ruled by giant beavers, mankind built many dams to please the beaver overlords. The low-lying city of Copenhagen is flooded, thousands die. Devastated, the Danish never invented their namesake pastry.
Amy: How does one miss that?
WTFH!!! LOLs! >.< Ahahaha.

Sinabi na ngang kung ano lang ang capability ng graphics adaptor mo na resolution (maximum resolution), kesehodang ikabit mo pa yan sa pinagmamayabang mong singkwenta y dos pulgada na LCD monitor, hindi mo na mapapataas ang maximum resolution ng display.
Wala akong pake kung meron kang lumang laptop noon na kinakabit mo sa external display at sinasabi mo na mas mataas ang resolution n kaya i-display. Hindi lahat ng makina pare pareho ang specifications. Hindi ko kasalanan na ang binili mong laptop ngayon ang yung may pinaka-mababang klase ng graphic adaptor (shared allocated memory pa! winner!). Ang ganda-ganda nga ng external monitor mo, bakit di mo pa tinasaan ang specs nung binili mong laptop?
Kaharap ko monitor ko at andito lahat ng resources tungkol sa binili mong laptop… simula sa klase ng screw, sa klase ng plastic na pinanggawa ng keyboard habnggang sa boltahe na pede ipang charge sa laptop mo…tapos sasabihan mo ko ng…
I refuse to believe the information that you are telling me!
Ayan, na-cold transfer ka tuloy sa St. Mary’s Asylum for the Mentally Challenged (located somewhere in the Pacific). ^_^
Rant finished. Over and out!

Wait! I stand corrected and embarrassed T_T Microsoft just emailed our senior tech about this issue and they supplied us with the document ID regarding the ongoing issue with the Intel graphics chip.
This may seem like an excuse, but in my defense, this issue is Microsoft’s fault. They haven’t updated us with the resolution. And I did call the arrogant basterd back to apologize and walk him through the resolution ^_^ Issue resolved!
Nothing lasts forever…true. Forever is a lie…true. As mortal entities all we can have is a lifetime. Sometimes you have to believe, hold on and finish the ride to see that there is such a thing as a “lifetime love”
With hindsight, we can laugh at our old selves, thinking that we stood up for nothing… all the struggle we fought was in vain. Yes it was in vain, especially if we jumped ship before we finish the journey. We will never know what could it been on the other side of the friggin’ ocean.
It is by choice, not fate, that we shape out future selves.
Destiny only chose the frame, we are the ones who will decide what picture to put in it.
Believe, hold on and finish the journey. You might actually like your destination.
It’s pretty sad if destiny already gave you someone you are destined to be with, someone that will love you all of your life, someone who loves you so much no matter what, someone who stood and will continue to stand by you through thick and thin… but you let go based on just mere uncertainties. Uncertainties that seems so big but is actually just a little bump on the road when you look at the big picture.
I can’t believe I was the one who posted this. Looking back, all I can say is… WOW! I’m really such a mess at that time. Well, shit happens. :D
