Dealing with Sweet Cravings

March 28, 2007

I am Joiz and I’m a chocoholic. I think I’m not the only one when I say that it’s very usual that I get cravings or sweet every now and then. I’m not just pertaining to chocolates (enough amount of chocolates can be very healthy) but also cakes, pastries, candies, ice cream, and whatever sweet things we can get our hands on.

The causes of these cravings can vary widely but chief among them are hormonal imbalances especially in insulin and serotonin, unhealthy dieting, Adrenal Fatigue, various eating disorders from the Body Dysmorphic Disorder group of symptoms, and even in very rare documented cases, premenstrual syndrome (National Institute of Health).

The Google Home Page Face Lift

March 23, 2007

Last Tuesday, Google launched the home page themes. If you have a Google account and uses the personal home page then you probably know what I’m talking about. I noticed the press release somewhere but only had time to tinker with it today and was really amazed with the oh so cute headers!

Google Face Lift

There are currently 6 themes available and Google has programmed the graphics to reflect what’s going on in the outside world and the design will also contain Easter eggs or hidden surprises that will open up with an opportune click at the right time of the day.

To .be or Not to .be

March 14, 2007

My apologies for the Shakesperean.

I have been contemplating whether to continue using my .be or not. Apparently, as of press time, my is still the most popular joiz according to Google, not that I keep track or anything but for some weird reason I get clicks from that search so I notice it (must be my relatives and friends). I’m also the fifth most popular angel’s lair in google (talk about luck).


When Love and Hate Collide

March 13, 2007

Having a fight with your partner can leave you in the pits at times. You love the person and yet you hate him. Maybe the word hate is a bit too strong, we can say, annoyed, displeased, etc. But it boils down to currently not liking him.

Are fights worth it? I think some of them are worth it. It’s part of growin/nurturing a healthy relationship with, not just your significant other but with anyone. You wouldn’t know how strong a relationship is until it is tested. Although too much fighting can be unhealthy. It could come down to the point that both of you no longer have time to emotionally heal and it’s better off giving space and time to be apart from each other.

UPLB SystemOne

March 12, 2007

It seems my alma mater has finally caught up with technology. UPLB has introduced online registration to its students for summer enrollment. The system is actually the project/feasibility studies of several of my batchmates last 2005. How I wish I was part of their group so that I didn’t have to worry about conceptualizing a feasib, I may already be a graduate by now. The only advantage of not being in their group is the expectations aren’t so heavy and downtrodden on you. I’m not regretful about that, I’m actually happy that finally, the project my batchmates have so painstakingly worked on is finally getting implemented and used for its purpose, i.e. online registration for the college.
