I've learned....

[http://penn.betatesters.com/wisdom01.htm]

I've picked those that I like the most.. you can come up with your own list too. =)

I've learned-
that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I've learned-
that you can keep going long after you can't.

I've learned-
that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I've learned-
that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I've learned-
that you should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if they believed it.

I've learned-
that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I've learned-
that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I've learned-
that people will forget what you said, and people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Once I found out the secret of the Universe. I have forgotten what it was, but I know that the Creator does not take Creation seriously, for I remember that He sat in Space with all His Work in front of Him and laughed. -- Lord Dunsany, "The Hashish Man"

"Someday, someone is going to walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else"
[http://brokenmachine.tumblr.com/post/56222999]

Quite ironic at times -- the ones you dearly hope to be with are the ones who elusively stays.

Aside from believing it is, it also by proving it should by how it is and how it should.

We accept it, we live with it. We live with it, we work through it. As we do, it is becomes our life. Unless of course we are living at another life.

Crush me, curse me, but this will become part of your life.

Improving handwriting

http://paperpenalia.com/handwriting.html

Somehow, our parents have taught us how to write just how they were taught by their parents. The URL above explains and describes some basic reflections why some of us (myself included) have awful handwriting and penmanship.

Take a look and your handwriting may improve just like speeding up and accurately type these keys.

[Nearly] Being Dilbert

Oh, the frustrations go on from day to day and today.

Dilbert is a classic how regular employees are treated as but work doers than contributors. Employees or subordinates are but contributors and not merely doers of the petty tasks required of them to finish and with our bidding.

We all just need to be juggled with stress and patting all over and over again to stimulate, motivate, satisfy and gratify us.

It's a human thing!!!

The tao of programming

I like Book 6: Management

Programming is indeed has its own sense. Only a little of management and a bunch of loop work to work out from the loop.

HowToBeAProgrammer: The basics where it can lead to somewhere

I've been programming since I started using computers. Literally, that's a fact. The first time I used a computer was when we are to be taught how to program.

The heck about programming? Goes my silly question during the first day. My frustration was overwhelming when what we did was to copy a set of words and symbols that cannot even be associated with poetry.

But, through the years, the basics of programming basically starts how we see things -- to program. Understanding the business process and laying them out to a series of commands and codes from an algorithm to a running program.

This site [http://samizdat.mines.edu/howto/HowToBeAProgrammer.html] discusses the basics and as I would more time later on, it'll be nice to be reminded of how I should and how I need to improve.

The evolution of a Programmer

Worth a read: http://www.ariel.com.au/jokes/The_Evolution_of_a_Programmer.html

Just before I graduated from High School, I decided to enroll myself in a BS Computer Science course. I never had touched a computer not until the first scheduled laboratory day in one of our major subjects.

I took the subjects seriously that I wanted to learn more. I stayed at the laboratory room whenever I got a chance. Soon enough we were taught how to program. Our instructors hands us some printed set of codes to copy and make sure to be able to run it. One required us to bring a particular book and have us do the activities in the book from a certain page to another. It was a tedious task but we diligently progressed, we overcame and learned a lot.

It all started with the task of printing "Hello World" on the screen. Colors, position and other styles and attributes made it complex. Going through the simple exercise can be tiresome but learning is picked at every level it goes through making through the levels of modification. The joke on the above URL precisely demonstrate a reality. Some simple tasks are made complicated to display prowess and knowledge on the particular topic -- this case, printing "Hello World".

In one of the subject I have taken, I overly tried to produce an awesome program but in the end, I was not able to pass it. It was a simple requirement but the aim was too bloated that it didn't materialized.

"The best way to approach it is to do it from the basic". However, basic in programming is not enough especially when you want to involve a lot of factors other than the basic output. Being strict can be bloated and being simple may not be just what is seems.

What is Aingelogue?

So you've asked.

Aingelogue is my term to refer to my self's monologue. It is just a simple way of discussing with myself and publishing it. It may be useful or not to the reader's concern. It is a way for me to burst or try to expand my thoughts -- challenge my own thinking, encourage to improve my writing, and foremost to express my thoughts in the way I can.

Self challenge, I believe is self-improvement. A training, an exposure and an adventure. Some people will likely disagree, denounce or curse whatever is posted. However, the fact that it is expressed and written is enough to learn whatever is sensible.

Wish me luck that I may be able to continue and bring into habit the wisdom of putting thoughts into this blog.

And so it starts...
