Swabeng Random Thoughts Part 7

1. Its been more than 2 months since the last time I've posted my swabeng random thoughts here. 

2. After close to 5 months, I'll be back working again as an IT Service Desk for an online gaming company. I was suppose to start today but I had to complete some of my requirements first which may take me a few more days. 

3. As of today, I have close to 60 pending posts to edit, not counting 40+ more that I drafted in my planner. With work coming my way, it may take some time to push my backlogs to zero. 

4. As only a few know, I've lost 300+GB of pictures when my laptop crashed. It was unexpected as my daughter played with some few keys as I couldn't recover them anymore. I don't blame my daughter as she was only curious on most of our stuff here. Rather, I should have backed-up the day before when I was writing my post for Marian Rivera.

5. After being diagnosed with hypertension, my diet was never the same again. I mean, I don't eat as much as I used to except on special occasions but I have to burn them right away. Another culprit was my sedentary lifestyle that I just sit down almost the entire day. The only exercise I had is when I take my daughter out for a walk of if I have errands to do. 

6. For the past 4 and a half months, I got to baby-sit my daughter almost full-time. She had brought the best and worst of me that made me realize how difficult and fun fatherhood can be. XD

7. As mentioned in #4, I had installed both Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 4. But I need to get familiarized with the latter as I got to create some actions on the former which can make my post-processing much easier. 

8. As of today, I don't have any backlogs (blogs) for 2011. But for photos, there is a lot of work to be done. XD

9. The longer I don't shoot (take photos), the more I feel stressed. That was proven after I went out last Sunday to take pictures for the CNY in Binondo. Now I feel less stressed and I hope I could shoot more often again.

  1. Good luck on your new job and also I hope you manage your hypertension. I used to be hypertensive suspect before but when I took up running, my blood pressure improved.

  6. Sorry for that crashed laptop. It happened also to me once so lesson learned. I backed up all my photos in an external drive everytime there are new photos.

  8. Pretty interesting life, buddy. Can you disclose which gaming company you work for?

    Oh and on the hypertension, I recommend getting some cardio, 4x weekly. Many of my fitness students have hypertension so I get them to jog/walk several times a week.

    1. Yeah, I'm looking forward to do some cardio. I just hope to get a good pair of running shoes in no time.

  9. Don't worry Mark, everything happens for a reason. At least now, you might want to think about investing on an external HD for your files. And congrats on the new job! I'm sure you'll miss your kid when you start working. :)
