August Roundup

Monday, August 25, 2008 Posted by vernon go ,
Well I haven't been blogging for almost a month now, wow!!! These are the things that i have been doing:

Bought a Book - Rule #1 by Phil Town (It's kinda like Stock Trading for dummies thing)bu i haven't read it yet

Joined PSE's Stock Trading Game - Well haven't read the book as stated above but im also trying to explore and do some trial-and-error to gain a little experience regarding the stock market.

Joined a school organization - The Technologian Student Press; i'm assigned as UPS(Union of Poetic Souls) chairman; it's my quest to further improve my writing skills and the like.

Design Project - Another research project to show/demonstrate all the Knowledge we have accumulated from our IE Subjects and teachers. The title of it is "Manufacturing of a wooden-duck pull toy"; Don't be Hatin cause its sounds simple but were designing a facility here people!

Industrial Research Project - We were given two options Industry Research and Theory Building, and we chose theory building and we are now going CRAZY!!!!! "The title is a proosed inventory management system for sari sari stores."

Went on Tour - we had two (2) official tours but only one was successful. The 1st was to the CICC (Cebu International Convention Center) - Mandaue Business Month Event and the second is to Precision Forming, Inc. - a sheet metal parts manufacturing (It's a medium sized company but they treated us really well and learned a lot as well).

Had a little fun? - well i was schedule to do my 2 dissretations during the recently concluded Intramurals Week, but it was my last intrams since i am a graduating student this year (Hopefully), so i could not help my self going to school even if it is a do-or-die situation since we will be having our Pre-oral validation and the deadline for our softcopy and hardcopy outputs.

A Cover Story & Article Writing - These are my first assignments aside from managing my fellow UPS-mates, i'm tasked to write a contribution to a UPS Article and a cover story on the Band Concert during the opening of the was fun since I have never done it before, I kinda miss doing new things and things that i lie doing...CURSE YOU THESIS!!! RAWR!!

well that's all for now, wish me luck on my thesis and hopefully i'll be blogging more often!
