when doing less means achieving more.

who ever said multitaskers are the best? this study proves otherwise. a friend posted this link (in Facebook) from Standford indicating that being a MEDIA multi-tasker may not be the way to go. (HA! FINALLY!) this applies to the current work setting where we are bombarded by different media (ipod, computer,cell phones, facebook, etc.) a lot of times i've been told to multi-task, and that for some companies, they prefer people who multi-task. at one point (or should i say, most of the time,nah, ALMOST ALWAYS) i've thought to myself that doing A LOT of things AT THE SAME TIME would not be really beneficial as one would tend to focus, or should i say, not focus at the task at hand. in my own opinion, doing a lot of things at the same time would force one to start something, and might not be able to finish one task AS multitasking tends to have someone to start several things at the same time. i'm not saying that being multitasker is a bad thing, i'm just saying that do

akalain mo yun....

a fellow runner from celebrates his 1 year runn-iversary today, Aug.17,2009. when i opened his blog, i saw that his first run was with Men's Health Miracle Run last year. tapos napaisip ako. teka, hindi ba ang unang beses kong tumakbo eh nung unang Miracle Run din? kung tutuusin, nung umpisa pa lang akong tumakbo eh, feeling talaga ako, hindi ako nag practice, feeling ko ang lakas ko kasi nag babadminton ako, pero sa totoo lang eh mahirap pala yun! hindi naman ako gumamit ng hindi running shoes talaga. in fairness eh ginamit ko ay tunay na running shoes, tipong lumang luma na sha, na out of retirement na eh binuhay lang ulit. eto sha oh :) naka lagay sa time ko sa 10k was, 1:19 daw, wahahaha pero sa totoo 5K lang un (talk about super bagal and super taba diba?) hahaha hassle diba? after nung miracle run eh di na muna ako tumakbo. so kumbaga sa relationship, eh cool off muna kami. and this cool off would last sobrang tagal, tipong the next race i was aiming was, the next

adiZero Gram Challenge

ever since I've been seriously into sports, i realized that i've wanted adidas. i'd prefer adidas over nike, for the simple reason that, i'd go for the "underdog" my first serious running shoes were adidas, even when i was not that knowledgeable with running shoes, i'd still prefer adidas than nike. until recently, i've tried other brands, primarily because of the big weight difference. i think this will be where i'd use my discount stub :) now my question is, what model is for light stability? :D my adidas supernova sequence :) my christmas gift for myself :) nice shoes huh :)

It has been only yesterday (August 8, 2009) that I was able to go home early (meaning, I was home before midnight, or the next day haha). So what happened during the first week of August? For one, we went to Tagaytay last Saturday (August 1), hang out lang, tambay, chillax. This idea actually started the Saturday prior to August 1, when we were hanging out at Trinoma and all the coffee shops were closing out on us (eh we didn’t want to go home pa then. Actually at that point, I was really thinking, “is she liking me back na?” whenever I ask her to go out with me, she almost always agrees/ goes naman din. BUT I didn’t bring much thought to that idea, basta go with the flow lang muna). SO there, finally our plans pushed through and we were able to go na nga to Tagaytay that Saturday. The weird
