2011 wouldn’t be as colorful as it was without the help of these people. They are the ones who have inspired me to be who I am today. They somehow molded me into the Oswald whom you know. They are exceptional in inspiring people in their own little way.
- Kuya Marjan ($) - The small but terrible engineer has made it here. Thanks to the common denominator between us - engineering! This man has been a constant inspiration. I don’t know but I feel the same towards all engineering graduate. Probably, we could understand the language hence it is easier to communicate with them. Plus, they know what it takes to be an engineer.
- Kuya Ron (@) - The man says it all. The Mechanical major graduate has inspired me to think over a million times of how my life would be in engineering. He is more of a friend more than of a mentor; little did he know that through our simple conversation, he has made it clear that I am really for engineering.
- Sir Ariel (#) - I would describe him as the Photo God for manipulating it so graciously. He really has put my interest in manipulating photos into another level. I must say that the colors he put into the art piece speaks of how colorful my dream is. I get inspired, I tell you. He has this magic of urging someone to pursue one’s dreams.
- Sir Claren (*) - Another great artist. The works he has posted in his dash is such an attention-grabber. Look at his portfolio and you’ll discover why I am looking up at him. You’ll also get inspired with the things that he does.
- Sir Pabee (^) - I know you wouldn’t be asking me why he has made it to my list. The photographs speaks of it already and you’ll get the chance to see how he does it - with passion. His works are just awesome and it wouldn’t fail to be the apple of your eyes after seeing those.
- Sir Toto (+) - Have you seen his photographs? I bet you have. And I am pretty sure that you have fallen in love with this guy’s pieces. Who wouldn’t fall for them, right? He is one of the two people who have captivated my heart to drag my feet to follow their footsteps.
- Ate Kash (!) - I have known this Iskolar ng Bayan since my high school days. She has built her name the way she want it to be - girly but full of wit. She is one of those people whom I look up to when it comes to writing. She has this charisma that she puts into her work.
- Sir Robx (~) - Now, I will kill you if you do not know who this man is! He is the living legend, at least for me, of the world of art! He has indeed proven his worth to the world and justified to where he is right now. Ever since I saw his work, I started to dream higher and believe that I could also make like those of his works.
- Kuya Kleinzh (%) - The funny thing about this man is that he doesn’t know that he is indeed a great creator. He is humble enough to claim things as his own. I tell you he is such a funny guy and when you get the chance to text him you’ll understand me. A great adviser, when it comes to courting. LOL!
- Kuya Toni (&) - This guy is my inspiration in being loyal to my girl. He is the perfect epitome of the guy who’s every girl dreams. Long distance relationship may be their setting but it didn’t made his love for her girl any less.
- Ate Arcell (=) - The girl that knows how to loves truly is hard to find especially if you’re placed in a scenario of being away with your love. She amazes me on how strong she is despite the fact that her guy is in Dubai. Both of them have inspired me to my girl and made me realize that distance could never destroy love.
I would like to give you my biggest and fattest thank you for being part of my life. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better me because without you, I won’t be the Oswald people know today. You have greatly impacted my life! No words could actually explain how much grateful I am to you. For that, may you continue to inspire other people as you have inspired me.
Wow salamat!!! Ngayon ko lang nakita to Oswald. Nagbabrows kasi ako ng kay junkyardkid then nakita kong kasama ako dito. Thank you uli.
I always wanted to be a singer. Oo pangit boses ko pero yun ang gusto ko nung bata pa ako (until now frustration ko yun). Sabi din ng mama ko, gusto ko din daw maging Driver ng Train noon. LOL. Salamat sa PNR Train na lagi kong nakikita sa bahay namin sa Sampaloc.
- 8: Want any tattoos?
yes actually I’m planning to have one sa left arm. Wala pa akong naiisip na specific na design. But yeah I really want a tatoo. Turn on din sakin yung my tattoo pero malinis tignan.
- 10: Want any piercings?
nope. but yeah maybe one day pero tatoo talaga una.
1. Time is Not a Limitless Commodity – I so rarely find young professionals that have a heightened sense of urgency to get to the next level. In our 20s we think we have all the time in the world to A) figure it out and B) get what we want. Time is the only treasure we start off with in abundance, and can never get back. Make the most of the opportunities you have today, because there will be a time when you have no more of it.
2. You’re Talented, But Talent is Overrated - Congratulations, you may be the most capable, creative, knowledgeable & multi-tasking generation yet. As my father says, “I’ll Give You a Sh-t Medal.” Unrefined raw materials (no matter how valuable) are simply wasted potential. There’s no prize for talent, just results. Even the most seemingly gifted folks methodically and painfully worked their way to success.
3. We’re More Productive in the Morning – During my first 2 years at Docstoc (while I was still in my 20’s) I prided myself on staying at the office until 3am on a regular basis. I thought I got so much work done in those hours long after everyone else was gone. But in retrospect I got more menial, task-based items done, not the more complicated strategic planning, phone calls or meetings that needed to happen during business hours. Now I stress an office-wide early start time because I know, for the most part, we’re more productive as a team in those early hours of the day.
4. Social Media is Not a Career – These job titles won’t exist in 5 years. Social media is simply a function of marketing; it helps support branding, ROI or both. Social media is a means to get more awareness, more users or more revenue. It’s not an end in itself. I’d strongly caution against pegging your career trajectory solely to a social media job title.
5. Pick Up the Phone – Stop hiding behind your computer. Business gets done on the phone and in person. It should be your first instinct, not last, to talk to a real person and source business opportunities. And when the Internet goes down… stop looking so befuddled and don’t ask to go home. Don’t be a pansy, pick up the phone.
6. Be the First In & Last to Leave – I give this advice to everyone starting a new job or still in the formative stages of their professional career. You have more ground to make up than everyone else around you, and you do have something to prove. There’s only one sure-fire way to get ahead, and that’s to work harder than all of your peers.
7. Don’t Wait to Be Told What to Do – You can’t have a sense of entitlement without a sense of responsibility. You’ll never get ahead by waiting for someone to tell you what to do. Saying “nobody asked me to do this” is a guaranteed recipe for failure. Err on the side of doing too much, not too little. ( : Millennials in the Workplace Training Video)
8. Take Responsibility for Your Mistakes – You should be making lots of mistakes when you’re early on in your career. But you shouldn’t be defensive about errors in judgment or execution. Stop trying to justify your F-ups. You’re only going to grow by embracing the lessons learned from your mistakes, and committing to learn from those experiences.
9. You Should Be Getting Your Butt Kicked – Meryl Streep in “The Devil Wears Prada” would be the most valuable boss you could possibly have. This is the most impressionable, malleable and formative stage of your professional career. Working for someone that demands excellence and pushes your limits every day will build the most solid foundation for your ongoing professional success.
10. A New Job a Year Isn’t a Good Thing – 1-year stints don’t tell me that you’re so talented that you keep outgrowing your company. It tells me that you don’t have the discipline to see your own learning curve through to completion. It takes about 2-3 years to master any new critical skill, give yourself at least that much time before you jump ship. Otherwise your resume reads as a series of red flags on why not to be hired.

Most of my friends say that I look stupid since I'm not afraid to act and look silly or funny in public simply because I can laugh at myself.I don't take life too seriously. I live life as each day comes but not putting out of mind the future to come. I'm a part time student, a frustrated graphic artist, and a full-time layout artist. I'm working 6x a week, i eat a lot, i blog most of the time, i listen to music all the time. I just do pretty much whatever i want. If you want anything or want to know something just hit my ask box...CHOW! __________________________________________________ >
