Improving Team (and Barkada) Collab with Slack

I've been using a for a couple of months now. I think it's great and I want to share it with you. Not only is it effective for working teams but for friends, too. Those who are willing to stick with it at least. The increase in productivity and transparency that they boast on their front page are true for me and my team. You can check out more of their survey results .

So what is Slack and what is it trying to solve? You can watch the video below for a better explanation but in one sentence, Slack to me is a wonderful team messaging tool with a lot of neat features to improve productivity and collaboration. More details after the video link.

A 2015 Guide To Your First Resume: For Students

Hello, upper East side! I kid. What shows are college students watching nowadays anyways? Whatever it is they're spending time on, they should spend a few minutes reading this post if they want a chance at a job they want. Welcome to the 2015 Cebuano Student's Guide to Your First Resume!

I was a college student once and I had to make a resume, too, to apply for an internship. It was difficult the first time but with the help of my sister who worked in Human Resources (who did recruiting back then), I cleaned up my CV pretty well. I have started going through intern applicants recently and I am weirded out with what I'm frequently seeing so let me do our future graduates a favor by giving you tips on your first resume.

Again, this is targetted for students and not professionals. If you are a professional, I assume you already know how to make a decent resume. If not, try using the tips below :)

Reuniting with Flickr

I don't know why I've left my unattended this long. It's been five years since my last upload of a fun shoot. Crazy. Maybe it's because every post I had before had a corresponding blog post on my old blog where most of my pics are and I grew tired of blogging my pics. The laziness was strong. For five damn years.

Had a couple of mini-shoots since then. I'm trying to get back to filling up my Flickr. Bear with me.

You have been charged PHP 300 in your bill for calling a landline number using your postpaid plan. If you want to waive this charge, just text 300 CANCEL and send to 293644993836 and reply YES to the next message that you will receive to cancel the charge.

With Globe Telecomm Philippines, you can share phone load to other Globe numbers by sending an amount to the number 2 + (desired recipient's phone number). However, scammers have started targetting this for collecting money from unsuspecting victims by sending the message above.

My Four Commandments

The is a book by Don Miguel Ruiz based on ancient Toltec wisdom. To be honest, I encountered the summary first before I read the book. I could fully relate to the summary and agree with it totally but when I started reading the book, the talk about spirituality, dreams, and alternate realities. It was a little too extreme to me so it became really boring really fast.

This  used to have a good summary of the Four Agreements but it has changed and I can no longer find the content on the website. So I decided it's time to write my own summary and understanding of my personal creed.
