Good stuff!

So, we wrapped up our semester last week. I don't know if it is getting harder or easier, but this semester went by PDQ....

We are planning a short trip to Boracay next week for a few days to R&R before we start our summer semester. Really looking forward to coconut oil massages and laying around, listening to the waves lap up on the shore. Hope the weather holds out for us there, unlike last time!! :)

I am starting a 'USMC" style work out program. Having some trouble sleeping/restlessness and figure it is lack of good old exercise. (Constant studying and computer vegetative states will do that to you).. We get our share mind you, there are more hills and stairways here than anywhere I have seen. And our food is fresh, homemade and relatively healthy. The program is from a rather boring looking book that emphasizes calisthenic type workouts that you can do w/o any equipment. Push ups, sit ups, and lots of "road work", as we like to call it in the corp!! I rather like that because I hate the idea of collecting more "stuff" than we have already. Anyways, I will be going through a 13 week 'boot camp" process. Actually, the way it is explained is simply routine overload of strength and stamina to better complete objectives. There is a bit of a "legend" of it being some kind of grueling accomplishment, but most are probably confusing it with some specialized Navy S.E.A.L. training, etc. Anyways, this new recruit is gonna get fit! "Ooh-Rah!!"

Hey Joaquin its nice to see that both you and Karen are going to Boracay this coming summer. im really jealous of you. well as for me im spending my summer thinking of what my next course that im gonna take next sem. since i figured mout that radtech. is kind of difficult for me. i have an interest of taking Entrepreneur. Pls. Joauquin tell some info about this at the U.S. if you know.
Anyway did you check already the two websites that i wrote you last time?

Don't be jealous, just go! :)

being an entrepreneur is a great thing, if you have a great idea and a great deal of motivation to succeed.

Whatever you do alvin, I am sure you can!

the websites are not really my style. I am inspired by many things, and I think that everyone should be inspired in their own way. Good for you that you found what some cannot see right before their eyes!
