Best Job

59 days ago

These are top ten according to CNN Money (via) considering the stress-level fun-level, pay, growth, creativity, and ease of entry.

  • Software Engineer
  • College professor
  • Financial adviser
  • Human Resources Manager
  • Physician assistant
  • Market research analyst
  • Computer IT analyst
  • Real Estate Appraiser
  • Pharmacist
  • Psychologist

Be alarmed that, there are obvious differences between a life and a living. CNN Money has said it all for best jobs for living, but for life I stick to what Schindler says:

My father was fond of saying you need three things in life – a good doctor, a forgiving priest, and a clever accountant.

But, I think the best job in the world is being a father. Just 5 minutes with her, the most advanced two years old little daughter in the world, are worth than 5 years I’ve been spending in obsessive marking breakpoints, compulsive code compiling, joining c#/Java/Ruby holy war, and throwing laptop out of the Windows (or throwing Windows out of the laptop. Same thing).

That’s it. Back to your regular programming hours.

I need your advices, people.
What’s perfect (and tangible) birthday gift for 2 years old woman who prefer fast cars toy rather than dolls ?

Kids.

They’re running around, screaming, yelling, making funny noises, and turn your cozy living room into a wreckship.
Still, every single word comes out from them invites a big applause in their audiences : your heart.

Uh-yeah, there’s a rock n roll star inside every kid.

And me? I was just a scout talent yesterday. Uh-uh.

Ok now. Put away your guitar, dump your Dunlop Crybaby GCB-95, fetch your keyboard (and mouse, of course).

Wayward Son

Children begin by loving their parents. After a time they judge them. Rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.—Oscar Wilde

I was trapped in parent-child relationship conversation this late evening at Carrefour’s pujasera.
Yeah, with bunches of my fellow jerks, you know who you are pals!

Somehow, we had quite a conversation, actually:

My old man spanks me when I misspelled the “ABCD”. So now, I grow up as a rude person.

My mother never breast-feeding me, even though she could. I get very serious ill during my childhood.

I think, my father only love my youngest brother.

I score some sh*ts, but they don’t give a damn thing about it.

Sounds familiar ?

It is interesting to see how we blame our parent about what they were, or about they we’re not. What they give, or give not.

Heh.. I was such a wayward son back then :)
My mom is the moon, and my dad is the sun. They’re just can’t be together.

But still, they’re my lights in the end of the tunnel. Always.

Happy weekend, guys.

Carry on my wayward son There’ll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don’t you cry no more No! —Kansas
