"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

project 365: the first five

"The practice of art isn't to earn a living.
It is to make yourself grow."

-- Kurt Vonnegut

i changed my mind. instead of reporting my project 365 progress every 30 days or so, i decided to reduce the waiting time. i'll be giving updates every five days. here goes the first...

day 1. milking a cow is not as easy as it looks. it entails lots of meticulous preparations and quite understandably so if the end goal is to have dairy products of quality. i saw how it's done. i saw it on tv. i think it's challenging. i want to try it!

day 2. read thy lips. people with thin lips tend to be workaholics. i got this piece of information from the february 2007 issue of reader's digest asia. hmmm... mirror, mirror on the wall, reveal the workaholics among us all.

day 3. guess who seemed to have misspelled their own name?

the valentine's day banner: where's the "l"?

thank you to my geekette friend, ann, for giving me the heads up!

day 4. cesar montano is running for senator. i like cesar. i like his smile. i like his eyes. i like his life and his career. i like his star... BUT i don't want to see it in the senate halls. there i've said it. i don't have room for crush-factor bias.

day 5. feedback is a fascinating well-known eight-letter word. it does not only represent that essential element in all forms of effective communication. it also contains the first six letters of the alphabet.

p.s. project 365: the first five covers the period 02.13.07-02.17.07.


  1. other amusing words are abbreviation and brevity.

    abbreviation's too long for what it means... and shouldn't brevity be replaced by a mono-syllable?
