cold as fire - hot as ice!

[migrated from livejournal]

have you ever...

ever had an addiction that it's so hard to stop once you get it started?
well, im speaking of ds lite / nintendo games addiction haha.

the games i have are quite entertaining. ive even let some friends sample the elite beat agents. it's a similar concept to dance revo, the drum games etc. although much simplified since you only have a stylus to use for playing.
---although, i initially had some reservations regarding letting other people borrow - i let them play so at least they may consider getting one. the ds lite i got seems relatively cheap (bought in hongkong - ORIGINAL lol) about 8k pesos if you convert it. so, nintendo should be paying me for this advertisement. the reason also being - the more the merrier. there are games that allow for multiplayer via wi-fi.

anyway - im digressing. you know how to get rid of that addiction?
my solution: download a game that your MOM can play! hahaha. ive introduced a simple block puzzle game to my mom and she's become fond of it. right about now should be her sleeping time - but she's still awake playing it! haha. i arrived about an hour ago and she was already in the early stage of her sleep - i woke her up and introduced the game...and...after an hour -she's still playing it! well, that got my hands of the ds - and so now, i can really focus on other (much more) important things - like my undergraduate research project!

change topic: undergraduate research project.
yey! finally. ive managed to make up for the time. ive already experimented on a program that would simulate the data logging aspect necessary. the next thing to do is to create a somewhat read function to display the written data via hyperterm as well as a program that will log adc values 0-255 (reference voltage being 2 volts) - and that's it the documentation.

---so, like a novel or other stories - a conflict is necessary. for this week - the conflict that is introduced is an interview with toshiba!! look how my weekend plans have changed in just 1 day.
*) my mom and i were supposed to go to my uncle's house in tagaytay - i think it's a house warming party then overnight there (maybe hit the casinos near it by night or something hahaha) - i told my mom, "ma, are we going to the casino? i want to try blackjack and the slot machines hehehe"
then that plan changed to:
*) do halfway documentation! i wasnt aware that it was this coming wednesday! and sir mike asked us to submit it by saturday i told my groupmates that we should work the whole day saturday....
but then...
*) toshiba emails and tells me that i have an interview saturday 1240pm at the peninsula...nyeh nyeh. The attire: long sleeves + slacks + necktie. better yet - bring coat. so i was like. ho hum...i need to prepare a presentation for an interviewer. at first i thought it was like going to be a panel of people. but then i was told that there's going to be one plus an hr will need some preparation

have i told you that i managed to learn how to tie a necktie in 30 minutes? hahaha. as if that's a feat of some sort. well, i thought my mom new. well, this is still in relation to the toshiba interview. the first job interview ive ever went to - so, since i thought my mom knew how to do the necktie - i was complacent. but then, when i asked her on the day of the said interview - she told me that she didnt. so i immediately hit the net and researched....and made it. i must say - the outcome wasnt too shabby at all for a first timer...


i was rofl when i was surfing the tv just now. i happened upon qtv. the news was: "Condemned building in UP diliman caught fire" and what hit my mind was - huh? "where's that condemned building? is there one in up? how come i never knew" then the commentator said that it was the Narra dormitory. hahaha. well, i didnt know it was condemned! i guess it's for the better...and what's more. i didnt even notice it burned down and i passed by it just today.

oh well.
so. back to work!

ps: soulja boy's crank that ... amuses me... 

what else what else?????
