Joining The Watch

In an effort to stay busy and moving forward with life, other than keeping me occupied with the workshops I’m attending over at OFE, I have began looking for any other related opportunities such as volunteer work and/or part-time jobs. A few days ago I stumbled across Downtown Winnipeg BIZ’s website while looking for job […]

Back To Square One

It took me about a couple of weeks and job fairs later that maybe there is something wrong with my job search for the past several months which may be the reason why I’m still struggling to find employment. I recently reconnected with a friend who happens to be in the same industry and situation […]

Birthday Letter

Dear Self, You’re turning another year older today… wow, time just flies. Please don’t try to make a big fuss out of your birthday. I know things have not been smooth sailing lately for you – you lost your job 9 months ago and still couldn’t find any full/part-time employment, your career is stalled and the […]

School Journal: Week 8

If anyone’s wondering, I’ve spent most of Week 6 studying for my midterm exams on Project Management. Saw the results on the Week 7 and I passed! 😀 I had a few deduction marks because I wasn’t been able to complete some diagrams because I mostly studied terminologies and focused less on charts and diagrams. Now […]

School Journal: Week 5 + Throwback!

School is getting busier as usual… workload is increasing and is directly proportional and I’m loving it! Photoshop 1 Retouching Day! I am already familiar with the basic retouching and all that; I’ve mainly used the Healing Brush Tool, Red Eye and (believe it or not) the Color Dodge Tool! Little did I know that […]

School Journal: Week 4

Wow, it’s been a month since school started! Looking back at all the new things I have been learning, I am happy that despite the slight pressure, my brain is still always ready to accept new information.

School Journal: Week 2

Photoshop 1 Our Photoshop classes began this week and started the discussion about colours. For an experienced web developer, while I am already aware that RGB is for the Web and CMYK is for print, there’s much more to it – like how the colours of each complement each other. I totally agree with the […]

Back To School

Hello student life! It’s been a while! I recently took up a Continuing Education program at Red River College to update my skill set and increase employability, and I never felt this ecstatic when classes began this week! Funny thing – when I was still in college, I’ve always looked forward to graduating and finally […]

No-Facebook Challenge

Another challenge completed – and I broke my previous record. 🙂 For the entire month of February, I dared myself to surpass my previous accomplishment of not going on Facebook for an entire week (seven days) last year. I just decided from out of the blue to go on a “cyber-detox” and pushed through with […]

My Take on the Amalayer Incident

It looks like the Carabuena-style incidents aren’t over yet. Yesterday, a certain video of a passenger making a shouting fit at a lady guard in a train station in Manila is making the rounds all over my news feed. I gave in and watched it, and honestly I was disturbed. Now trending: #amalayer After the […]
