BYOD

September 1, 2015

System admins advocating for BYOD (bring your own device) are insane.

Wow. I am terrible at finishing my posts.

The few drafts that I’ve actually published are incomplete at best and barely substantial–at least from what I’ve outlined in my mind.

Much like my blog posts and unpublished drafts, a lot of my personal projects, hobbies, and ambitions start off with a bang then fizzle out like a dying ember holding on for dear life. As time passes, games go unfinished or even untouched, songs are not completely learned, crafts lie unfinished, new skills are not mastered, workouts get placed on the back burner, and so on.

As I looked at all my unfinished personal projects, I began to wonder why I can never finish what I start. Have I become a quitter? I was terrified by this idea. After reflecting on this, I realized I wasn’t quitting these projects because they were difficult to endure or anything like that; I was always putting my hobbies and interests last and as a result, almost everything else in my life trumped it. I didn’t mind too much as I feel that putting my family and work/education first is important. Investing in the security of my future is important to me, but not necessarily fun. However, in my mind, having fun = being selfish. Every time I did something for me, I felt guilty! 🙁 Continue Reading

Asking for a promotion: Do you deserve it?

July 5, 2015

Some companies conduct annual reviews like clockwork. Others employers are more lax, to the point where you have to nudge the boss and remind them that your review us up! If you work for a company that sounds like they’re in the latter camp, you might be thinking, “why would I want to remind my boss to review my performance?” Good question! Performance evaluations are a great opportunity to showcase your hard work, accomplishments, and personal development. Continue Reading

tl;dr don’t half-ass your dreams

June 9, 2015

I’d like to say that the spirit of entrepreneurship is alive within me, and I’ve been fostering it since my high school days. My first attempt at creating a “business” was a tech repair shop circa 2008 that specialized in tiny gadget repair and modification such as iPods and iPhones, PSPs, game consoles, laptops and PCs. It was named–and I’m embarrassed to admit–skyPod Electronics. I charged little to nothing for the repairs and shamelessly plugged my services into a variety of free outlets including MySpace, Guam Chat, and Craigslist.

TIL: fun fact about Windows 95

June 9, 2015

Do you remember your first computer? My first family computer ran on Windows 95, and boy, hearing that start-up sound meant what seemed like hours of getting to explore the digital realm of computers.

 

 

So I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to change some of the system sounds on my laptop to echo the past. I’m sure I’m late to the party, but today I learned the legendary Brian Eno composed the Windows 95 start-up tune.
