When I was a wee lad I sailed the internet oceans searching for treasures forbidden by the laws of man. I collected so much loot during my escapades, loot from all over the digital seas and those days were golden and time goes by unnoticed.
As I grow older the time I spend on the ocean becomes shorter, the more money I make the less I need to collect loot from the sea. Now I have duplicates, the one I’ve looted and those I purchased and it comes with a heavy heart that I’m now letting go of those I’ve looted.
Don’t worry it’s to free some space from my storage: because once a pirate, always a pirate.
I got promoted last week….
I’m a big fan of Mr Robot, I haven’t finished the second season but my word still stands that I’m a big fan. One of my favorite quotes from the show is “It’s not about getting up. It’s about stumbling. Stumbling in the right direction.” and I totally agree to this.
I have plenty of demons inside my head, I had them since high school, some I slayed, some sleeps, and some still haunts me up to very day. One of my worst is about my promotion. To give a brief summary I been working in this company for over 2 years now, and I tried to get promoted multiple times and end up failing more times than I can count, that’s when that quote from Mr Robot comes it.
Maybe it’s just dumb luck that I came across an ad for an apprenticeship when I’m scrolling through my email that day, but I took my chances and applied and I got in. I work my ass off just to prove that I’m the right person for the job and past forward 6 months they promoted me, and I don’t know what to feel. I can’t say I’m exited because the real test comes after the promotion, maybe it’s mixed emotions or I just can’t feel anything at all.
For me that’s the meaning of the quote, It’s really not about getting up anymore it’s about failing multiple times and stumbling on unforeseen opportunities presented by life itself.
Now I can move forward and slay some more.
I just spend my day off doing nothing, I mean I did watch some Pro Wrestling, Anime, and played some games, but nothing productive. I don’t know, once I’m home I rather rest than try to learn something new, maybe it’s just me, but what the heck it’s my day off and I want to just lay on my bed and pretend to sleep.
Day 7 Log 1
This is Day seven of me using Linux, specifically Lubuntu one of Ubuntu’s Flavors.
I have used Windows since God knows when, and it never failed me up until I upgraded to Windows 10, don’t get me wrong Windows 10 is great but my hardware can’t keep up with it and discussing about my current hardware is a different topic altogether and might require a different post. In short I enjoy using windows but my hardware don’t and enter Linux.
This is not the first time I’ve used Linux, mainly Ubuntu the first time was way back in college and it’s was basic stuff, how to install, how to use the terminal, so on so forth and like every college student in the Philippines I forgot about it after graduating. In my defense learning Linux was never a priority, it’s more playing online games and having fun.
Fast forward and it’s February 27, 2016 and I’m installing Lubuntu 16.10 on my Machine. I can’t recall when I decided to try Linux all I know is that I can barely use my PC with Windows 10, random crashes, lags and freezes, monitor turning off every now and then (maybe might fault due to me overclocking my card). I think it’s the last one that made me decide to install Linux and I’m here right now because of that.

If this appears as my first post well it’s not.
I’m pretty new to WordPress and blogging all together and I did’t notice that I could edit the very first post on my page made by WordPress themselves and that’s why I’m editing it now.
This blog is not purely about tech but more about my daily life, regardless if it’s about tech, games I played, or my shortcomings, I’ll post them here for the whole world to see.
