Bill Gates

September 24, 2009

From http://wikipedia.org;

William Henry "Bill" Gates III (born October 28, 1955)[2] is an American business magnate, philanthropist, and chairman[3] of Microsoft, the software company he founded with Paul Allen. He is ranked consistently one of the world's wealthiest people[4] and the wealthiest overall as of 2009.[1] During his career at Microsoft, Gates held the positions of CEO and chief software architect, and remains the largest individual shareholder with more than 8 percent of the common stock.[5] He has also authored or co-authored several books.

Gates is one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. Although he is admired by many, a number of industry insiders criticize his business tactics, which they consider anti-competitive, an opinion which has in some cases been upheld by the courts (see Criticism of Microsoft).[6][7] In the later stages of his career, Gates has pursued a number of philanthropic endeavors, donating large amounts of money to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, established in 2000.

Bill Gates stepped down as chief executive officer of Microsoft in January, 2000. He remained as chairman and created the position of chief software architect. In June, 2006, Gates announced that he would be transitioning from full-time work at Microsoft to part-time work and full-time work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He gradually transferred his duties to Ray Ozzie, chief software architect and Craig Mundie, chief research and strategy officer. Gates' last full-time day at Microsoft was June 27, 2008. He remains at Microsoft as non-executive chairman.

Who wouldn't want to work for him? 10, 20 or 30 years from now... I would want to.

18 days before midnight

September 22, 2009
“Pake ko ba sa kanila kung hindi nila ko i-renew!” – mia

That was me in my bitchy side while talking to my equally bitch Aunt.

Five months ago, I was this girl looking for a primetime job. When I say primetime, I mean a job that would be everyday and that would give me enough experience to make my resume even more credible. An office working job.

Lucky, I was accepted as VPHI’s copy writer. What I do is make copies for the company, do press release to deploy, articles and news. It was not a hard job… news writing was way harder.

But months after I was moved to another department—Multimedia. This present department is very different from my CW world. Jobs here fall massive and/or passive. Either you have a job or none at all. You come to work everyday expecting work load but nothing lands on you. To kill boredom choose whether you blog, facebook, chat, or go to the other department and beg for job. Not that I didn’t like here in multimedia but a lot of my time is wasted here. I don’t make the most of my time… I feel so unproductive… and sleeping was even more productive than to stay here, you just let time pass and wait for game over.

Today, September 22, 2009, marks the last 18 days before my contract ends with Vibal. Honestly, I don’t want to leave Vibal… for three reasons: (1) my friends, (2) the experience it will mark my resume and (3) the 13th month pay. Being kicked out here would make me sad for awhile but its something I can shrug off in less time.

I know fate has plans for me. To stay or not to is up to you up there… I would love to stay but if this isn’t the right road for me… I don’t want to walk on further. Rather, I’d like to grab the turn ASAP.

I will miss the people I worked with here…my companions turned friends, my advisers turned sisters and my bosses’ like my parents. I always thought that working in a company would be very different… I never thought that working is just like a continuation of school, like a next home…. That becomes so close to the heart.

I'm in Love

September 15, 2009
Love is the most beautiful feeling. As cheesy as this blog might sound, but being in love gives me the feeling of security, safeness, fulfillment, happiness... L-O-V-E!.

Whenever I am in love things around me is easy, even an x mark feels like a perfect check. A police man's whistle to red light feels good.

Everything is wonderful, beautiful... it's magic.

When I'm in love I thank God for each day and often ask for one more day, for another day.

love, now and always,

Tossing Between Tellphones: From wishing, to owning, to losing, to finding it again, to buying, to trading, to selling.

September 05, 2009
Cellphones.
How many have you had in your life?

I'm not a cellphone freak. I don't text all the time(except if i have a bf), it takes time for me to realize a new message was there for me, when someone calls I cancel it and txtbacks i'm lowbat,
It all started when Rose Ann Ilagan brought her mom's cellphone in our Grade School field trip... Since then, I always wanted the hottest phone in my hand.

Color: Metallic green
Price: 18k

7. Nokia 6110
History: Mom feared to buy me a new phone again so what she did was hand over her old phone... The phone is black and white but slim. It's a business phone back then. It looks elegant but not hip. I don't like it, but of no choice, i used it.
Color: black and silver
Price: not sure

8. Nokia 8210
History: This is originally used by my yaya but when she saw my ugly 6110 cellphone, she volunteered to exchange cellphones with me. Thinking that her phone was hipper than mine, I swapped.
Color: blue, sometimes red... it has a lot of housing.
Price: traded, prolly 8k that time

9. Nokia 7270

It was a cute phone... really small, smaller than a call card. its way better than a china phone. But it's not a girl's phone... definately not for me.
Color: noble black (that's how its written in the box)
Price: 4.5k

18. iPhone
History: 2 yrs ago when I still live in the US, my tito told me to buy this phone already because he has this premonition that later on I will also buy the same phone. And 2 years after, he was right. Gawd.
I really saved a lot for this phone... Actually, I stopped shopping for 2 months to save up... even searched two more 'raket jobs' to succesfully bought it... but the saving up and the job freaky time is all worth it... my shining shimmering iphone is now in my hands. I heart you iphone xo xo much!

UPDATE: (March 27, 2011)
19. Nokia X6
The iPhone I bought was damaged. Bought it, used it for awhile then sold it. So... I bought another touch phone, a nokia x6. Bought it for the sake of having a decent touch phone and it has pink lines too! :D
Price: 18.5k

Color: Pink/Black


20. Hello Kitty X6
Because I'm not used to having only one phone anymore, I bought another phone after selling all my other phones (except the Nokia, though). This ones' a dual sim, hello kitty and pink. Love it. But sold it after using it because it's China made.
Price: 3k

Color: Pink


21. Cherry Mobile x90
Here's a funny story behind this. Bought this because I saw a movie of Kim and she have the same phone(the white one). After selling my kitty phone, I bought this. It's so pretty! Pink, Fab, unique. And on top of that, CHEAP(for its looks).
Price: 4k
Color: Pink

22. HTC Desire HD
I really swore that I won't buy any phone and wait for iPhone 5, after not being able to buy the iPhone 4 last December. But when someone stole my phone, I decided to buy this. It's dual touch, 8mp cam,  gorgeous black, large touch screen, with flash... what else do I need?
Price: 25k
Color: Black

Closet Chick No More

September 04, 2009
I'll be honest. I want fame. Claps. Spotlights.

I always wanted fame, in any form.
Most of the time, I act like all I ever wanted was a behind the scene spot but the truth is I am dying to live Pop-U world.

Who wouldn't want that?

It's not all fame that I want actually but the perks and privileges, it has behind it. The feeling of the world stops without you. My name... a household name.


Me... the next God.


The thing is..... will it ever happen?

The first day of ber

September 02, 2009

September 1, 2009. Christmas is nearing. Another year is passing by… What happened this year? Its highlights? Is there something to remember or I chose to forget it all away?

Finally, got a job, an office/everyday writing job away from freelance. And I’m losing it. How come when a dream comes true, someone’s dream gone out of the blue?

Finally, V and I had our 5 yrs in the making story… but ended in a snap.

I’m single. Still. And counting 5 months now.

I’m waiting. Yes I’m waiting for you army, comeback for me.

Hearing the song, “Last Christmas I gave you my heart.” Crazy. I’m not in love last Christmas. I was single.

How many times have I said single in this blog entry? 3? What is happening now? I am getting used to the single word. I am typing it now with no scratch in my heart. Could it be that I am happily accepting that I am single now right? Could it be that my plan of being like my Aunt who thinks differently will now come to life? As in am I, myself, ready to be forever I? Me? Single?

I still don’t know. Why talk about singleness in the 1st day of the ber months? I don’t know too. Will consult a psychiatrist later.

Ok for the serious sense-ly stuff. …

I love ber months. For it gives me the notion of a new chance. A new hope. A new beginning for the coming year. It gives me life, a chance, a comeback. It makes me feel that there is life no matter how nega the previous year was.

It also gives me the chance to be able to eat Bibingka. Seriously, its one of the worlds most delicious food—for me.

I’m also excited about how cool the breeze would be now.

I love sun. I’m solar girl. I love the night. I love cold weather. I love tagaytay, baguio, US. I hate carrots with no reason at all. I just created that I was allergic to it so no one can ever force me eat it ^_^

When will the time that I will love and hate again? When?


love, now and always,
Photobucket
