The “Why do I run?” Series

Filed under: Uncategorized — by ardeearam @ 10:54 pm

Why do I run #1 – I look better without my tummy!

I’m currently having a love-hate relationship with running, and this is the nth time I am “going back” to running. To help me get motivated, I will now for every day think of ONE reason why am I still pursuing the sport. It’s not easy to have the discipline of allotting 30 minutes – 1 hour for running, and running gets boring in the long run. So I’m collecting my reasons to keep me running!

Enlightenment While Walking Home

Filed under: Uncategorized — by ardeearam @ 12:48 pm

One day I was walking home from the office,  enjoying time for myself and thinking of  nothing in particular, when a thought suddenly struck me. This thought, more of a very strong feeling and vision more than an actual idea,  hit me so hard that it seemed to summarize everything that I want since the beginning. Suddenly, I knew what to do with my life, with all the blessings that I had, and with the time given to me.

I will:

  1. In my youth and strength, I will work extremely hard and long to have enough funds to purchase 2-3 apartments.
  2. I will use the extra passive income of those 2-3 apartments to purchase possibly another 2-3, while I am still working.
  3. I will retire from this high paying but highly stressful life that I have, and teach.
  4. I will damn take everything slow, will reap the fruits I have sown with sweat and blood, and will make myself immortal by sharing my knoweldge and experience to future generations.

And the summary? I need to build soon, high,  and fast, so that in the end, I could walk away from it all.

To be able to walk away, to escape,  and build your own life in your own terms, that for me is wealth beyond compare.

Blogging lesson # 14

Filed under: Uncategorized — by ardeearam @ 5:02 pm

Blogging lesson #14 – An unfinished blog post in the drafts section has 85% chance of not being finished, be shelved eternally, and collect dust until kingdom come.

Corollary #14-a. – If you really want a blog post to be published, finish it in one sitting.

Corollary #14-b. – If you really want a blog post to be published, do a damn short article.

Minimalist blogging?

Filed under: Uncategorized — by ardeearam @ 4:49 pm

There are more than a few times where I intend to write something funny, new, or exciting about my life, but then I get discouraged by the effort in trying to write about it. After a few paragraphs or so, I have to add and edit an article, add a picture, make an an outline if things are getting too complex. I then become tired and overwhelmed just by staring at that thing that I have to write. That exciting and fun event doesn’t seem so fun anymore once I see the effort needed to accomplish the task.

So today I’m trying something new (yet again)! I am trying my own way of minimalism: I’ll be limiting my blog entries to 5 paragraphs or less. Anything more than 5 paragraph should be chopped into more than one blog post. Each blog post should only have one picture. Each paragraph should then be limited to 5 sentences. The whole damn thing should be 300 words or less.

I know this is not as easy as it seems, since a shorter blog entry would mean leaner, more direct, and more precise writing. I should be very wary of my choice of words and my trail of thoughts. But then it would have two important effects:

  • In theory, I could write and document more things, since it would demand less from me;
  • It would be more interesting on the readers part as well, as readers could be very busy and would rather skim a document to see its relevance.

So this “minimalism” movement starts with this post, and I hope something good will come out of it 😉

CCAP 10KM Fun Run Night

Noong Sunday, May 23, 2010, muli akong sumali sa isang 10km run pagkatapos ng matagal na hiatus. Noong araw bago nito, pumunta ako sa takbo.ph, pumikit, at nagrandomize ng pinakamalapit na takbo na pwedeng takbuhan, dahil napapansin ko nagkakabilbil nanaman ako at lumalaki nanaman ang tyan ko 😦 Nagkataong naglanding ang aking hintuturo sa CCAP 10KM Fun Run Night, at dahil natatakot na ako sa patuloy na paglobo ng aking tyan (at dahil parang nababalam ang aking 21km dreams!) , walang dalawang-isip na tumungo upang tumak-gogogo!

Sabi sa mga posters, 5:00PM daw ang simula ng takbo, kaya mga 4:45PM palang nasa tapat na ako ng One E-Comm,  Mall Of Asia. Ako ay medyo nadisappoint noong sabihin na 6:00PM pa ang start ng registration, at 10:00PM pa ang start ng run (T_T). Pero ako ay desidido na magbalik sa pagtakbo ng 10KM run (kahit na tumatakbo ako sa may amin ng 1 hour, thrice a week) kaya ako ay naghintay kasama ni RellyBelly.

Dahil nga nagsimula lang ulit ako, medyo pinapakiramdaman ko lang ang katawan ko, at hindi ko pi-nush ang sarili ko na bilisan. Hindi ko napansin na medyo mabagal pala ang pacing ko noon, at dahil siguro wala talaga sa kondisyon ang katawan ko, napansin kong nasa buntot na ako ng race.  Ako ay nakatapos sa nakakahiyang 01:28:12! My gulay! Mas malala pa ito sa pinaka-una kong 10KM run sa Urbanathlon (take note, may obstacle pa ito, at may aakyating 7 foot wall sa dulo) na 01:17:14. Kailangan ko talaga ulit mag-shape up ulit dahil maraming ensayo nanaman ang kailangan ko upang umakyat sa aking pangarap na 21 at 42km 😦 Ngunit wala akong balak tumigil muli, go go go hanggang mag 21km! 😉

Summary:

Run: CCAP Fun Run Night

Leg Length: 10KM

Date: Sunday, May 23, 2010

Venue: SM Mall of Asia

Time: 01:28:12

Ang aking kahinaan: 1:00AM hanggang 2:00AM

Filed under: Uncategorized — by ardeearam @ 6:38 pm

Nakakainis kapag dumadating na nang 1:00AM hanggang 2:00AM. Sa mga hindi nakakaalam pala, ang aking shift sa Creo Studios ay mula 5:00PM hanggang 2:00 AM, ngunit minsan (read: palagi) ay umaabot hanggang 4:00 AM dahil napakadameeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeng tinatapos T_T. Ngayon, kahit ako ay alive alert awake enthusiastic mula 5:00 PM hanggang mga 12:00 ng hatinggabi, ako ay biglang nalulupaypay pagdating ng 1:00AM. Para bang tumitirik, nagba-buzz-buzz,  at nagooverheat ang utak ko kapag nag-iisip ng kahit anong malalim at tuloy-tuloy. Ito’y sobrang nakakainis lalo na kapag nagiisip ka ng matinding algorithm, tapos bigla kang mateteleport sa isang mall na kasama mo ang isang dwende at maligno, tsaka mo marerealize na nananaginip ka na pala nang nakamulat. Minsan nga’y napapasubsob ako sa keyboard, o kaya’y naibabato ko ang aking hawak na mouse (buti nalang hindi sa katabi ko).

Marami akong ginagawa upang maiwasan ito, dahil ako mismo gusto kong matapos ang mga trabaho ko, akala nyo.

  1. Nandyan at tumatayo ako habang nagcocode, ngunit minsan sa sobrang antok ay muntik na akong mabuwal, buti napakapit ako (sabi ko nalang sa kaofficemate ko nadulas ako hehehehe).
  2. Nandyan na ginagawa kong tubig ang kape, ngunit walang nangyayari.
  3. Minsan ako ay pumupunta sa banyo upang… maghilamos. Promise, hilamos lang, hehe.
  4. Sinubukang ko ring makinig ng mga upbeat na music, tulad ng mga opening songs ng Naruto. Minsan effective, minsan hindi talaga o hindi o bakit?
  5. Ngunit ang pinaka-epektib so far ay ang (den den den den)…

Cobra energy drink! So far ito ay hulog ng langit sa akin, yehey! Ngunit kahit gaano ito kagaling, ito ay may kaunting limitasyon:

  1. May delay ang kanyang epekto, siguro mga 30 minutes to 1 hour bago sumipa. Ngunit pag nandyan na, hypercoder mode na ito! Muahhahaha!
  2. Nararamdaman ko na para bang ineerode nito ang aking mga ngipin. Parang lumalambot ang enamel ng aking oh-so-beloved teeth. Ewan ko, baka praning lang ako.
  3. May pakiramdam ako na walang mabuting maidudulot ang Cobra sa kalusugan, lalo na kung araw-araw (o thrice a day) ko itong lalagukin.

Hayun. Sana nama’y makahanap ako ng isang anting-anting, yoga exercise, o magic enchantment na magbibigay sa akin ng isang daan at dalawampu’t porsyentong lakas upang matapos ng sobrang bilis at sobrang husay ang lahat kong projects. Ngunit habang hindi ko pa nahahanap ng super solution na ito, tagay muna tayo sa Cobra.

Tagay!
