What Do I Want To Do?

I won’t use a lot of flowering words for this one. HERE they are, in no particular order:

1. Shoot a missile.

2. Win as a member of any Philippine national team in any technical function (i.e. coach, manager, etc.)

3. Travel to Sweden, Switzerland, and Spain.

4. Win any place for an electronic sports tournament.

5. Ride an ATV.

6. Write a book.

7. Plant a tree.

8. Have my own entertainment rig.

9. Complete a book collection.

10. Ride a cigar boat.

11. Ride a submarine.

12. Get my blog to have 100 views per week.

13. Do crazy pranks to people.

14. Meet a person of authority and throw him/her some hard-hitting questions.

15. Have a dance.

16. Go to a music concert.

17. Fire a machine gun.

18. Get an award for writing.

19. Drink another cup at Starbucks.

20. Live a good life and prepare a good legacy!!!

Simple, ain’t it?

Despite all of these, I think that I should be thankful for the things that I have received and gained so far, because I know very well that there are many others who may not have the chance or who may not even have the time to think of these things!

Have a nice day!

Expectations: Short

To be perfectly honest, if people ask me about what I expect from life in general, I will immediately say that I do not expect much from it. Why? It is because that I have learned after a thousand setbacks and failures that I should not expect too much from life, and that I should be a bit more cautious about setting my expectations.

But I believe that it will be a bit green in the end. I believe that I would be able to overcome whatever obstacles that will come my way, and I believe that I will be able to achieve a happy and prosperous life.

That’s it for now…I guess that I’ve have had enough of life for today!

The Entry for Losing

Here’s three quotes:

“If you learn from defeat, you haven’t really lost.” Zig Zigler

“While one may encounter many defeats, one must not be defeated.” Maya Angelou

“If you can accept losing, you can’t win.” Vince Lombardi

So it is pretty much obvious that I am gonna talk about defeat.

Well, I am a bit defeated in a certain part of my “real” life, and I am defeated in my World War Online forays (just went off the ladder). The question is: What went wrong for me?

The answer is that I did not plan my moves very carefully. I was never prepared to see the risks. I did not do some advanced thinking. Instead, I did it the YOLO way.

And the results are just rather heartbreaking. I whined over it for an hour.

Then a day.

A week.

Afterwards, I learned to move on and accept that I did made mistakes here and there. I took note of them.

I guess I’ll emerge stronger and this time emerge victorious: After all, a victory is only distinguished from a defeat by the sheer fact that I am a few steps ahead, isn’t it?

I guess losing is a part of life.

Lose now, win later.

But always try to get a good win!

Semi-Rant

So now I am twenty years old with a physique five years behind and a mind said to be several years older than me.

I really wonder how should I start to approach life.

Should I approach it more seriously and solemnly? A lot of people have suggested this “piece of advice” for me.

Or should I continue with my carefree, upbeat way of life? It may seem annoying and childish at times, but well, acceptance of reality is part of the game, ain’t it?

Then of course comes my bloody career choices. I just try to fake a smile, knowing that in the real scheme of things, it would be be challenging to find a job unless one is presented with a literal miracle.

I don’t like cubicles or four walls. I’d love to have my bit of fun and coffee in the things that I do.

I’d rather try to lead and guide than to expertly manage things (I do not really show my “leadership” skills a lot, mainly because I really like to sit back and be in the background of things).

I’d like to be able to articulate my thoughts freely.

I’d like to have a time for working SOLO and YOLO, while having opportunities to work as a team at the same time.

Well, that’s what I think today. I want a future.

I want people to be able to say that “hey, this guy has made a bit of a difference”.

Well, I guess I have just ate a lot of meatballs.

To hell with it. Whatever.

Today is a Sunday

Today is a Sunday.

Tomorrow is a Monday.

Tomorrow is an exam day.

But I do not care.

I do not even think that exams are that urgent.

I just want to savor the blue sky.

I just want to smell the fresh air of spring.

I just want to see the new sights.

I just want to feel the euphoria inside me.

I just want to hear the chirps of the birds.

But then…

Today is a Sunday.

I think that it is time to do something.

For myself…

For the rest of us…

And today is a Sunday.

 

Troll Language: Version alpha

Basically, the world of Trollistan is an Englessh-Anglophile speaking supranation that transcends borders, shares a common language and possesses a lot of diverse dialects. Thus, the Republic of the Federation of Trollistan has decided to create a language code for its citizens. Here are the rules to be used by the English speakers to translate into the glorious and wonderful language of Troll:

1. Change all “s” to “z”. Example: has=haz

2. Change all “g” to “k”. Example: strong=stronk

3. Change all “b” to “p”. Example: noob=noop

4. Add “n” at the end of a word if it ends with “e”. Example: strike=striken

5. Use shortened forms if applicable. Example: European Union=EU

6. “am, is, are” can be replaced by “haz” Example: We haz stronk!

7. Do not use foreign words in their original words. Corrupt them as much as possible! Example: bon appetit=bongart petik!

8. “ish” is turned into “esh” Example: Turkish=Turkesh

9. “Th-” is turned into “d-” Example: this=dis, taht=dat, them=dem

10. “Too” in “too much” is removed. Same with other cases.

SAMPLE SENTENCE: Dat Turkesh guy haz stronk in EU! He much power.

Hope you enjoy and start to join the world of Trollistan! :D

Disclaimer: This is not a new language. This is just a modification to the good ol’ English that we all know! :)
