Nocturnal Freak

It’s official. I’m a nocturnal freak. I wonder when will my body clock return back to its default state. I just finished deploying some “patch” for a CMS site that I just created. There’s a lot more to do and I can’t for the love of everything holy make a staging instance. I directly debugged…

PTO

My boss gave me 3 days off a.k.a probably PTO because the past few months have been VERY stressful. (I’m so lucky I’ve got awesome bosses) Guess how I spent the first 2 days of my PTO??? 1. A personal project <3 2. A side project ($$) Call me crazy. I wouldn’t mind but hey…

Stupid Mistake

Every once in a while, we make mistakes.  It can happen to anyone of us. Hearts may break because of one’s stupid mistake. This is the story of one of my stupidest mistakes. EVER. I was bored one Saturday  so I thought of doing some weekend fun. My idea was to code my personal web…

Gondola

So I had my first gondola experience this month. Yay! People close to me know that I am afraid of heights and fast-moving objects. I was scared to try it at first but I got comfy along the way. I guess it just goes to show that the future might be scary but you’ll eventually get…

Chikka_Exp.log

After about 3 years with my soon-to-be former company, I’m finally taking my talents (or lack thereof) to “South Beach”. It’s not entirely easy. It feels like breaking up with your first true love. (Ugh. Cheesy alert.) It’s an uncommon scenario for me because I practically started my “career” with them ever since I graduated.…
