New Team on Monday, Logo Approved, Laptop, Work

At work, we are grouped in teams. A designer, a builder, a writer and we do nothing but websites. Starting monday all designers will be on one team, all builders or Production Assistants will be another team and all writers another team too.

I’m not going to comment on this, but I guess the people happy about it are those that are not happy with their team. And the people not happy about it, are those that like their team.

Logo approved. 3rd logo was chosen. Check all three!

I didn’t post what laptop I got. That’s because I didn’t get any yet, but I believe I am getting John’s Dad’s laptop.

Work, work, work… SEO for Martal Exterminators will be done once I get the content. Logo approved for HomeSimon.com, I might make it 3D. San Diego Taekwondo needs some building for the inside pages. Graveyard Chefs initial sample design needs to be done too. And follow up on all these hosting deals. Reminds me of the demo account I need to setup for Ivan.

Been Busy… Some Pictures

I’ve been busy lately with all sorts of things.

Less time to blog.

My college classmate Richard emails some pictures to our college classmates’ Yahoogroup. He posts them and ask people to come up with a caption.

Instead of giving a caption, I edited them.

He emailed these:

And I sent back these:

Now back to work…

How’s Everything!

Summary in a few words:

Unemployed
Still looking for a job, 2nd Screening for Lindows
Trying to close a deal
Having fun Chatting with Marcia
Passed the Driver’s License Exam
Joined a Taekwondo School

The Brief Details:

After applying for tons of jobs on Monster.com and HotJobs.com ever since I came here, on the first batch of jobs I applied for, one already replied saying I passed the initial screening and was asked to fill up another questionnaire for the second screening. The company was Lindows, Inc.. Position as a PHP / MySQL Programmer

I got a proposal with a major publication company for my company YDS Web Solution, and it is still in the works. No contract signing yet, but if ever I get this, this will be a major break for my company in the States.

Marcia bought a webcam and headset with microphone so I’m happy to see her in the flesh and hear her as well. I get to talk to and see Jamie as well.

I took the examination at the Department of Motor Vehicles for my driver’s license and passed the examination with a perfect 100%. They gave me a temporary license that I could use till September 20, 2004 until I get my actual driving examination.

Just joined Champion Taekwondo Academy under Master Won K Min. They are WTF style so my belt will be accredited. In the Philippines I am a high red belt, where that is 3 belts away from Black Belt, and Master Kim was offering me the same belt, 3 belts away from black belt, but I asked for a belt one step lower since it has been 1996 since the my last active practice of taekwondo. I might be pressured with the same ranking and my skill depleted through the years. I might get beat up with the same belt so I opted for one belt lower.

Of course Master Min knows Master Sung Chun Hong of the Philippines and I told him I am a student of the student of Master Hong. With my hyperthyroidism still hyper, I took some tapazole to lower my thyroid activity to lessen my heart rate in preparation for later, which is my first Taekwondo class in years. I will do some stretching before I leave so my body won’t have a big adjustment.

Hello to my family, I miss you all.

Things not done

I had to bring CDs today at Informatics. They are the PC networks and troubleshooting CDs for my students. I was not able to burn them all on time.

I had to bring the BayanTel application today. I was not able to, since I was burning CDs.

I needed to bring some printouts to En Blaze, but was not able to. Since I needed to clarify some things before I printed them and was not able to talk to Ms. Lani.

It was tiring going back and forth Olympus, Teresa, Olympus, Teresa… but that’s fine. As long as it is for family and relatives, since these kinds of events don’t happen all the time.

North Olympus House Getting Better!

My day started out with going to Federal Hardware. Marcia bought some cabinet doors again for the new kitchen cabinet where the hood will be. We also checked out Gillamacs to see the airconditioners there. We were not happy with the aircons we saw. They were not brand new, but their price was like a brand new one too.

We then checked out the cement tiles for the back of the house, but decided to get from ET Pineda Enterprises. Their prices are the same all over, so we decided to get from the people we know, and ET Pineda Enterprises is also Popo Pineda’s Family business. It mainly his parents’ business, but since we know him, we might as well talk to him on the tiles. Popo is also the drummer of the band MoonStar88.

I then brought Marcia to work and headed towards North Olympus to check out the house. The skeleton of the door roof was taking shape and looked good. I worked on the TV Rack Entertainment Center and installed the glass doors on it.

After that I headed for a car wash. And I went to the car wash again, owned by Popo Pineda. And then I brought Dawn to her UPCAT review. Printed some billing statements of YDS Web Solution and headed for work at Informatics.

Schedules got jumbled since my XP2WP (Internet & Email, MS Outlook) WF 2pm to 5pm class was replaced with Flash – Fun Animation at the same schedule. Then the old XP2WP was moved to a new time slot. Classes were interrupted when Sir Anthony Maribay came, he requested a meeting for all lecturers. He taught us the basic stuff we should know that we already know. *Ehem* But it was still a good reminder,… *ehem* *gwrraaacck* *sniff* …since we do forget basic stuff. AutoCAD was exercise as usual, drawing the classroom with all the details in it, drawn to scale.

At home, I was a bit tired, so I did not do much and went to sleep early.
