Take A Chance

Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.

-> Dale Carnegie

Life is all about taking chances. You can never go the distance if you do not jump and fall. Successful people got to where they are by taking risks only a few would dare.

Why? Because getting out of your comfort zone is very beneficial to you. You get to discover yourself more, know your limits and your potential. It allows you to see the world in a very different light and achieve things you might not otherwise reach.

If you just stick to things you are used to, you might never improve.You might also end up in a situation worse than where you were. If you succeed, you end up better, if you fail, you end up wiser. There is nothing you can lose if you just try. Live, Love, Life.

Success is not in how many times you fall, but in how many times you rise up again and show the world that you can do it. So what are you waiting for? Make something happen, take a chance!

Christmas is Coming!

According to the website http://www.xmasclock.com/, today, Saturday at approximately 4:47 PM (technically +7 hours from the GMT because I am in the Philippines), there are 37 days, 7 hours 13 minutes until Christmas.

Christmas is usually a time of impulsive buying of gifts for family and friends. It is a time where the malls are full of people looking for the best gifts. Here in the Philippines, Christmas is technically celebrated from September until January, and people are usually jolly during this time because it is the time wherein bosses give their 13th month pay.

Christmas is usually associated with extravagant gifts, impulsive buying and Christmas songs. People tend to forget that Christmas is also about caring for your fellowman that is starving in the streets or is dying because of lack of money. Christmas is really about charity, love and making someone’s day special. Christmas, overall, is about us following Christ’s footsteps to become more like Him.

Merry Christmas! 🙂

Excited for Assassin’s Creed 3 on PC!

Assassin’s Creed 3 is part of a super awesome game franchise made by Ubisoft! The thing which makes this game really quite famous is because the characters and story are cool. The  game play is also quite new(if you really haven’t played many assassinate-a-certain target games) and is nicely packaged into an eye-popping interface which is sure to attract gamers  to try and play it. When you play this game, it serves also as a fun history lesson. The story line of the previous Assassin’s Creed games, for example, Assassin’s Creed 1 – is about the Crusades and Assassin’s Creed 2- is set in the Renaissance.

In my own experience playing Assassin’s Creed 1 and 2, despite sometimes experiencing glitches and the like, I really enjoyed the unique game style. I like playing it because I really became immersed in the story line and to tell you honestly, I loved the characters and I can relate to their problems they experience. Despite the characters doing quite impossible feats like climbing in very high towers, they can still show their human side and that is what really makes me like this game.

Assassin’s Creed 3 is recommended for everyone, you will really enjoy it!

Facebook Games.

(Cityville by Zynga)

Yes, Facebook games flood your notifications with game requests and it get really annoying. It is really an eyesore to see these notifications, and it can really get on your nerves. But when you look at it from a different perspective, Facebook games themselves are a good way in wasting time and serve as outlets of frustration due to daily stress.

The simplicity and the easiness of these types of games make them very popular to a wide audience. For example, let me talk about the game CityVille. First-time players  go through an in-depth tutorial which educates the player and which results in an enjoyable experience.

If you are an avid Facebook user, why not try these games out?

(LOL, being surrounded by cows)

Minecraft is a game wherein you can do whatever you want and build structures only limited to your mind’s imagination. When I was introduced to this game, I really thought that it will be boring because of the lack of proper “circles” and the game really consists of squares. But as time passes, I learned to love this game because it really awakens the child in me and lets it run free. When I play this game, I feel a sense of satisfaction when I finally find those ULTRA RARE diamonds or kill Creepers which can explode in my face.

(Creeper, f*** you for destroying my house and exploding near me. -_-)

The creeper is an enemy unit in Minecraft. Players hate it because it always ambushes them and explodes, either killing/damaging the player and/or destroying structures made with love. Whenever you play Minecraft, always watch your surroundings.
Minecraft is also a good game because you can mine resources and use them to make tools to fulfill a variety of needs, like:

  • You can mine stone and craft them with sticks to make a hoe or a pickaxe, which is useful
  • Resources can be used to make a variety of structures, ranging from a simple 1×1 tower to structures that are majestic and beautiful which are aesthetically pleasing to the human eye.

Yes, my friends, if there is the good, there is also the bad. Minecraft’s biggest con for me is that it really has no “tutorial” bundled within the game itself. The game has quite a steep learning curve and for the beginner, means a very tiring climb to the top. In my opinion in Minecraft(Single Player), the villagers really do not act like villagers at all. They don’t plant seeds, make homes, and stuff that ordinary humans do. They just simply go out at morning, get in their home at night, and trade with you for emeralds. I hope that the villagers will be made more realistic in the future updates.

Overall, this game is exhilarating and fun, and I recommend it to any gamer out there. It will blow your mind:)
