day 632 – one on one

image

one on one session tonight was a productive one because all attention was on me so had to take things more seriously than usual. i was able to fast track and cover the bulk of what i needed to solidify for my upcoming promotion test. all that i was trying to avoid doing had to be done tonight, there was no choice given. there was even time at the end where i had to do a few randomly selected poomsaes and he gave me constructive criticism. this was not the time to half ass because he forced me to restart from the beginning when when it wasn’t up to standard

day 575 – last one standing

it was late at night and the gym was pretty empty but that’s my favourite time to be there. taking care of business being the last one on this side and having all the space i need is just the way i like it because i hate waiting for equipment. being at the gym during rush hour is the worst because i feel highly restricted and unproductive not being able to use the equipment immediately

twenties series: [five] technology

some arguments were made that technology is altering people interaction and that we are losing the ability to communicate with face to face conversations. that may be true on some level, but can’t argue that technology is a powerful tool that has also brought us many conveniences like never before. sure, the increased gaming opportunities isn’t a good reflection but a little wouldn’t hurt. no one can argue being able to send a short message or quickly snap and send a picture through our mobile phones applications in a matter of seconds is not convenient, the simplicity to check in or tag your friends in photos to share, or the ability to retrieve an email the second it arrives is not efficient. let’s be realistic, who doesn’t own a computer or cellphone these days and who still uses land line as home phone?? the technological world is advancing so quickly, the fastest and most efficient way is to constantly be checking all sorts of platforms. i must admit i am a culprit of relying on technology everyday, every waking hour. i don’t see how that can be a bad thing because just by checking up on social media, it allows me to catch up on some friend news, gossip new and world news even if it means reading them off my facebook wall. i admit i am the person who would be swiping on my phone at the dinner table; but in my defense, being a busy person makes it is not all unncessary activity, but i am working on minimizing that. bottom line is i feel so lost and naked without my phone, i simply cannot live without technology and i don’t think its a bad thing

day 209 – an attempt to be productive

at waves working away trying to get many things done and catch up with my many works, most of which are due this week but i have delayed it until the very end. why does situation look so familiar, it is like a sin to finish things in advance because that’s not how i roll. sometimes i find procrastination brings the best out of me, aside from the stress
