Enjoying Simple Life

Wednesday, May 6, 2009 by Bea

Sounds like Paris and Nicole's reality TV series?

Nah. Lately, I've been inspired on the good and bad things around me. It might be weird for some, but anyway, I grabbed my camera (or someone else's cam) and took a shot...





When you go inside the gaming world (virtually), you forget about the latest updates around you in-real-life: the weather, the calamity in other places, the birth of triplets, and other small things that usually gives a spark or inspiration to someone else, if not you, that is. ^^;

When you feel like you're being scammed or hacked in a game, always think of the people around you in war - whether they are the allies or not, they are fighting for the same thing - they are fighting in the real world for you and me.

If you only eat crackers and drink C2 saying you feel hungry or feel pain just for the sake of gaming, think of the people who never got to eat not one grain of rice everyday, and die in starvation because of poverty.



If the vanity in-game items look ugly to you, think of the people in the fashion world that slaves away all of their time just to make an almost perfect outfit just for you.

If you think you have been deprived from all of the bad things that has been happening to you in work, in home, or just by sitting here and reading my post -

Never think negatively. Do not see yourself as a failure. Do not blame everyone for your own faults. Do not just fall and lie there, stand up and fight...


There's no one in town I know
You gave us some place to go.
I never said thank you for that.
I thought I might get one more chance.
What would you think of me now,
so lucky, so strong, so proud?
I never said thank you for that,
now I'll never have a chance.
May angels lead you in.

Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.

So what would you think of me now,
so lucky, so strong, so proud?
I never said thank you for that,
now I'll never have a chance.
May angels lead you in.
Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.

And if you were with me tonight,
I'd sing to you just one more time.
A song for a heart so big,
god wouldn't let it live.
May angels lead you in.

Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.

Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.



Take a shot for you life and for others.

Ciao~ ^_^

Newbie VS Pro

Monday, May 4, 2009 by Bea

I've come across many jobs as much as the games that I've played before and currently, and sometimes I ponder on how many things I've experience lately.

This is where a lot of people would analyze a freshman graduate spilling coffee and papers altogether on his/her first day at the office at his/her desk quoting "newbie pa kasi."

It's when a player killsteals or die during a PK or in-game wars, trashtalking and shouting to the world "NOOB KA TALAGA!

While walking around in Ayala Avenue, seeing people looking young and about 20 or 21, with a brown envelope or a folder with their full names in black Pentel pen ink, you would say that is a typical fresh graduate on their way to a 20-story or higher building trying to find ways on not sweating in their blazers or long-sleeved coats, not to stammer during their interview, and not to totally mess up their chance on working on a very prestige and formal company.

When going around in-game, wearing your +10 and above armors and weapons, you'll see in the market next to the beginner NPC is a bunch of players in their beginner's clothes, and chatting around asking for gold and where to's and how to's of the game.

These situations are quite similar, and in which made me smile and think more:

Will they make it? How can they make it? What will they do once they get their first paycheck or first high-level equipment?

Will they say, hey, I ain't no newbie anymore! Look at me now! and laughs endlessly?

Sometimes people ought to think back and say "we've been there, and we can totally relate to you." It's not that bad before when you look intimidated by people around you. And it's human to smile and feel relieved that you made it, and be proud on what you've accomplished. Just try to keep your feet on the ground, and make sure you still remember on where you've been before...

There is no newbie or pro - there's only you and me - and the cycle of life and reality. 'Nuff said~
