One Down, Three to Go

I just got rid of my Equitable Mastercard a few minutes ago and boy, does it feel good to get rid of such a pain in the ass.

Technically though, I’ll still have to follow up the cancellation as I just faxed my documents a while ago.

For months extending into roughly 3 years now, I’ve been dancing around my financial woes and until recently, things start to look promising. All those earlier years of being underpaid had to hit me somewhere with a lasting effect: my pocket. With my daughter’s barge into a private elementary school looming around, I had to start planning. I knew it was hard but I knew it would be harder if I the time comes that I don’t have the options I have today.

So after a few juggles and the best financial planning I could muster, I’m left with three credit cards. The latest I would be able to zap the next one would be next month leaving me with a couple more which I plan to pay off until next year. That should leave me enough time to “improvise.”

So cheers to a seemingly (or elusively,) brighter financial future ahead.


IBM’s products Lotus Workflow and Lotus Domino Document Manager are giving me a big time headache.

Not that I’m complaining but I’m starting to reminisce those times when I had actual time to do something else aside from learning a new technology and trying out examples that don’t always work.


Delicate steps into the darkening shadows bid their fading farewell. With the growth of the latter, the diminishing yet rigid staccato on the moistened pavement all the more defines that gaze levelled into nothingness.

Is it a wonder that everything turns lurid with the creeping growth of the distance between us? Is it a wonder then that everything else elegant and vivid gets drowned in a flurry of thoughts, a comma slowly consuming hope and what remains of it?

I would know better than to infringe the fragrant hyacinths soaked in the seething haze of uncertainty as words rendered meaningless no matter how they are strung, spliced, juggled or juxtaposed?

Is it a wonder then that when parallel lines stretch across a system of eternities, they cross somewhere among the heavens beyond the senses of the universe, only to be brought back in this realm in the sparkle of your teary eyes? Then one by one crystal droplets fall, slowly streaking down your delicate cheeks like meteorites on a clear summer night.

I definitely know better than to burden the moon and the stars as poets have tirelessly done so in the past. At least the latter have come to pass leaving a legacy of opuses to ransom the exhaustion of the former. I have nothing but a painstaking of a lifetime ahead of me leaving me with a negligible possibility at one.

I definitely would know better than to leave everything up to the heavens. Not only because infallibility was never the gods’ gift to humanity, not only because silence is forcefully more defeaning but more importantly because of the simple yet unmistakable realization that struck me this time.

I was wrong.

How Could I Forget…..

I’ve just realized that ever since I started this blog, I have yet to write something about one of my interests: pool. I’ve burned lot’s of time (not to mention a good portion of my college allowance) in the sport so I thought I take some time off to place this one here.

I guess it’s pretty timely that they’re going to hold the World Pool Championships here in so just to be able to write something here again, here’s the World Pool Championships page for this year.

The only thing amazing about it was that it took me a lot of googling to actually find something that was supposed to be found easily days ago if it weren’t for the tons of hits racked up by the video game named after the same tourney.

Anyway whole lots of luck to the Filipino cue masters.
