Only Time Optimization

Yesterday I woke up from a very weird but magnificent dream. I was in a shopping mall (most probably it was SM) where you get killed by the salespersons or by any other reason! Really, it was very scary. More surprisingly, it had two ‘installments’. The first one was concluded when two guys of my company finally got reunited with their friend’s ghost, the one responsible for the haunting. As I remember, I was watching them on the top floor as they held hands and raised them together. The music then was “Love Erin Shore” by The Corrs. That scene appeared so sweet to me due to the fact that I like that music too. When I awoke, I was totally amazed that I tried to think all about it again and eventually fell asleep. As I said, some sort of continuation of it materialized in my mind then. More murders came. {x_x} The last scene that I could remember was a family and group of salesmen were exchanging javelin throws aimed at each other. Then there were those fellow teens playing darts that didn’t seem to notice that killings around the mall are already happening.

Such a great dream. When I finally got up I watched Power Rangers SPD. It was an episode where they were rescued by an unknown Ranger which turns out to be from the future (he was still in today’s episode and rescued them again from the monster that uses infinite rays of light through a mirror to trap objects). His outfit was cool – white and blue. In the end they knew that he was the boy they once knew and saved from being captured by their adversaries. He was Sam. {sigh} I really love stories like this – traversing the time dimension in order to change history. Lovely.

Whoa! Today’s the big day for Manny Pacquiao and Marco Antonio Barrera’s rematch. Neh, I am not really looking forward to it though. Hehe. Woke up today just in time for Power Rangers (again, hehe) and Inu-Yasha. Again, I’m glad that somehow, there’s still a kid inside me that looks forward to such shows. Growing up, sometimes, is a mess you know. The Inu-Yasha episode was the one in which Inu-Yasha came after Kagome in her world and ended up destroying her new bicycle. Also, Kagome’s classmates comes to their house to see the “half-diablo” for the first time and unexpectedly didn’t notice that he is one (since Inu-Yasha had a bandanna to hide his ears). KKK (Kasal. Kasali. Kasalo.) is on ABS-CBN to supposedly ‘match’ the boxing games in GMA. Many of my dormmates prefer it, while others are strong-willed enough to watch the Pacquiao-Barrera match. In the end, the two TV’s in the dorm was utilized for the two channels. Just the right thing. I pity those who’re watching KKK. {evil laugh} They should’ve watched in it in the cinema, like what I did during the fest..

This weekend is a productive one. I think somehow I have finally learned how to convince myself that having a lot of things to do is simply a matter of optimizing your time.

Free GLOBE Shirt

I’m wearing the GLOBE shirt I got during the Y4iT (Philippine Youth Congress in Information Technology). The question was something like this, “What makes GLOBE unique?” My answer was simply “Lahat posible.” and poof! One free t-shirt. ^_^ It’s quite funny that I’m a SMART user (answers were sent via SMS) yet they still considered me as a winner. Hehe. The design is neat. Many of my friends had something to say about it even though the cloth’s pretty ‘thin’ (as what my classmate JP remarked, “It basically serves as giveaways.”). My ex-roommate told me that it’s nice, my dormmates at the lobby when I arrived this afternoon said that it’s my sponsor (LOL), and Erika had to ask from my classmate where I got it when we had dinner. Fufu..

Our group didn’t finish all of our report in Java. I was actually pissed for some time because it appeared that they never really took into consideration the time allotment. In Geography Sir Fernandez had a summary lecture. I was sleepy the whole duration of the class. Just can’t help it. Hehe. In Bio20 Sir Malecosio did not come to class! Well, not really. It turned out that he was just late, and failed to inform one of us. We immediately escaped the classroom when a PH student checked and found out that he was not in the Faculty Room. (another) Hehe. In CMSC140 Sir Cabunducan discussed more on PHP and MySQL and gave the details of our final exercise. Lastly, our Assembly Programming project’s finally working! Yea! I never thought we’d finish it this early. Without the aid of my partner, I would’ve been stuck on how to extract digits from a 4-digit input until now. All that’s left to do is how to randomize the 4-digit number to be guessed! Our game’s “Mastermind” by the way. Gonna upload it here as soon as it’s already checked.
