will be there...

One of my goals for this year is to visit at least three places within the year. I already had the list and the dates and I already imagined myself being there and having an adventure of my life. However due to recent economic news about the country I have to make changes on my plans. But here is the original plan of the dates and the places that I plannned to visit this year:

1. Puerto Galera during the Holy Week. I have been dreaming of spending a night of endless drinking and on this place. They said that you can party here during the Holy Week and you don't to worry about what other people would say about you in the morning. You can be naughty and nobody will care, almost nobody. However when I was all prepared and excited for this trip the recent news about the Philippines being upgraded to investment grade by Fitch has changed my decision and I ended saving it for a stock that I am plannning to buy. My leave has already been approved and I can no longer retract it so I ended spending my Holy Week in Manila reading books.

2. Baler - I want to go surfing in Baler. Maybe develop it into a hobby. I don't know how to skate nor have any idea on how will I balance myself once I'm on the surfboard but I think its exciting. I'm planning to go there this June or July during rainy season as I was expecting that the waves would be high, it would be much fun, I guess.

3. Batad or Sagada - I saw pictures of bloggers who has been there and the place is just marvelous. I still can't decide of where should I go but I think I woudl probably choose Sagada. I am planning to go there this May as a graduation gift to myself. I didn't attend school's graduation ceremony as I'd rather use the money for my vacation. Hopefully its worth it, I don't like ceremonies either so missing it doesnt really matter at all.

Hello Bloglines

I seldom go out and meet people however I have this personal desire to be able to relate to any topic that might be discuss when I meet people. From the latest TV series to current events I wanted to make sure that I am still a part of this world. This week I am planning to watched the entire first two seasons of Game of Thrones. 

I've been trying to read almost all blogs that I subscribed to and I was thankful when web aggregators was created. One of them which I prefer using compared to others because its user friendly is google reader but for some reason they will be shutting it down. I've been trying to look for a web aggregator that is as user friendly as Google Reader. I've been searching online and most of the result shows bloglines next to Google Reader. I remember trying out bloglines before but for some reason why I was lost along the way on how to add blogs and news sites that I view regularly. 

Until today, I have decided to export the contents from Google Reader to bloglines. It was very painful that I just decided to manually add them. I don't know how this would work for others who are using Google Reader. One thing that I don't like about these aggregators and I don't know how to fix them is regarding the contents that it displays. For some reason it doesn't display the entire article, I have to good to the page source in order for me to view its entire contents. Does anybody knows how to fix this or is there a better web aggregator that could displaythe entire web content?
