Now.

A reverse movement or tendency originated by the semantics of certain statements causing one to be rendered forlorn and unguided to follow the path ahead instead of the road behind.

You needed a punch bag, didn’t you?

You’re late, too bad. 🙂

Google goes Bing!

Enough said! 🙂 I think it’s the first time I see Google following Microsoft’s trends.

Quite interesting… and I do like Bing more right now than Google; not only because I find Bing much more fluid in all-around search but specially since I discovered Google History.

Alphan… Scratch that.

Originally was going to write a post about alphanumerical keys, but I’m holding that one up for later. Haven’t really written anything since I came from the USA, so this is going to be it.

So after that awesome trip to New York and Los Angeles, a week passed by filled with a mixture of work and drama. Oh, the trip was awesome, yes. Granted we didn’t really had that much time to visit places and all that we still managed to snitch some time after work and go to some cool places (Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Boulevard, etc) and meet some nice people. (note to self: Long distances = direct flight, period – not arguable, ffs!)

Now, as I was saying… back home. Don’t even know what to think about all of this to be honest. I’m divided between Murphy’s Law and Chuck Norris’s roundhouse-insta-knock-out kick. Other than that? I’m calm as a dead man, fo’sho!

Let’s see how this week goes though. Should be interesting, it’s all or nothing I’d say. Either all the pieces of the puzzle start to come together or it’s going to be one hell of a ride <insert evil grin here>.

Trip of my life

I’m keeping it short:

YOU FUCKING ROCK! \m/

Prioritize!

I’ve been facing this sort of dilemma for the last couple of weeks. The amount of stuff I have to deliver is such that I feel like it’s going to take me a few months to get it all sorted out. I always try to dodge stress, pressure and even anxiety but this time it’s impossible.

What makes everything worst is the fact that, as soon as you finish some project you instantly get 5 new requests so be made as soon as possible. It blows, but that’s how the game goes, I guess.

In the mean time, I’ve been listening to Wolfmother (again), rawk on! \m/

Attitude

Consider this the very first post that falls under the “pissed off” category. Nothing pisses me off more than people that likes to show off their power by disrespecting the others. Not only it pisses me off, it makes me want to punch them hard. (note to self: self control) You see, when it comes to power there’s two types of people: those who actually have it and those who don’t, but still try to obtain it.

It’s impressive how people try to get stuff done for them by asking other people to do it. Even more impressive is when that sort of task requires a lot of time and effort and they don’t even offer themselves to help you. Think of it like  a “do this so I don’t have to bother with it” type of attitude. Think it’s enough? Nah! Besides the attitude, they even got the nerves to put a time limit and demand it to be done right away.  Oh, and you know what? They even get pissed at you because you told him “Sorry man, right now I’m too busy to give you a hand with that”. It’s just … genius! I mean, damn, I wish I had a slave to do all the work I don’t like to do for me – If you know where I can get one, please mail me the info! (And hey, graduates don’t count!) – WAIT, it’s not the end yet. Now, imagine the person who has this type of attitude and is askin… I mean, demanding you to help him is actually the one person who receives more help from you.
Isn’t it like, the ultimate type of appreciation one can have from a person who keeps receiving your help and NEVER helped YOU with anything?

It’s quite an achievement to have the balls to try to exploit people just like that. If “get people to do work for you while you’re a mere employee” was an objective I’d say that guy would get 110%.

Congratufuckyoulations man!
