Trolls

Not the cute ones though.

Okay, I’ll let you into a little secret.

I loved tonight. I only wanted to try it but it sucked me further and further when I felt that I had power.

Then it came to me, why didn’t I do it before? Why did I discover the excitement I am getting from it just now?

I wish I knew it sooner because the satisfaction was amazing.

Trolling. On social media. Not the bad one.

 

I was actually going for a sensitive topic on efficiency and airport management. Somehow, others were thinking on a shallow perspective and that was where the disconnect started.

Then it turned ugly for them since they launched personal attacks which I was able to avoid but not without having to control my own feelings. I still got affected but not in the way that I could resort to using ad hominem attacks too.

In the end, I felt like it was a success. I was able to bury 3 people in the mud made out of their own logical fallacies.

Although it was enjoyable. It was also exhausting.

 

Would I do it again? Definitely. But not in the near future.

My very dependable travel buddy has been an awesome addition to my travel must-haves. He’s been through any kind of weather – withstanding even the harshest rain during last year’s trip to Yehliu.

I claimed my Fitbit today. It’s a reward from my Citibank credit card. It also puts me in a position to be more conscious about my health and fitness. What I’m more surprised is the price of this Fitbit (~PHP8000) and I got it for free!

Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6 is the story of Hiro Hamada and his quest for vengeance about his brother’s death. If you put it that way, it doesn’t sound like a kid’s movie.

It does, however, catches your attention by the technology being displayed in the movie. With the young Hiro, who is just 14, able to conceive a lot of advanced imagination we could only think of.

I think that the movie is all about perspectives. We can develop technology but the way we use it is a lot more important. And what about what happens to us? Can we channel it into something positive or are we going to dig our own holes and hibernate in them?

The cutest character may have been born from this movie – Baymax. He is originally created to help with healthcare but Hiro’s intentions wanted him to do otherwise. But, it is important to note that he does not succumb to this intentions despite the fact that he’s a programmable robot. This shows a lot more human side of technology that we don’t usually see.

Big Hero 6 is a heart-warming movie of coming-of-age mixed with imaginative technology.

Convenience

One of the things that I don’t like are people who take people and situations for granted.

For example, we have an incoming delivery of new laptops. Those two are assigned to us as instructed by the very big boss. It is to complement our work as on call personnel.

Know also that our boss had his new laptop last year and ruined it by cracking its screen a week into their new happy life.

Now, the boss’ laptop was supposed to be assessed for repair especially since it’s new. However, when he heard that our new laptops are to be delivered this week, he asked if he could have one and his destroyed laptop be transferred to us.

WHAT THE HELL.

He said that getting a new laptop is urgent because the one he’s currently using is about to give up. If that was the case, why did he wait long enough for his laptop to be repaired. And, as I have learned from the purchasing team, no work has started because he wasn’t too keen on processing this repair request.

Urgent, my ass.
