10 is a Milestone

PSRC has been my 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) home. It accepted me as a newbie in 2003 right after college, me having no clear direction of what I wanted to do. Wait, I distinctly remember that I really wanted to be a bank teller then thinking that I could be home by 3pm. LOL

It was mixed feelings when I left in 2005 right after Nanay died. I really liked what I did then but at the same time I felt that I needed a breather from the research world.

Just like a thief in the night, he was, he is still, and will forever be a THIEF and not a hero!

Tomorrow’s national election may be the country’s most controversial, jampacked, and very personal election since the Snap Elections in the 80’s. On top of the so many issues hurled to almost all candidates: death squad, rape, bank accounts, citizenship, corruption, cancer, incapacity to perform to several national issues such as Yolanda and MRT/traffic, what struck to me the most is the polarizing effect of each candidate to families, friends, officemates, and even significant ones. Ultimately, this has become a real test of friendship and relationship especially ¬†when almost all candidates resort to social media to raise their own issues.
