i believe in second chances. not only that but i've grown to learn to keep moving forward. no matter what brings you down, what pulls you to your lowest, makes you feel like you are just a piece a shit. there's nowhere to look but up. because in the end, everything will be alright. everything will be just fine. be happy that you are still living, be thankful for everything you have, for the friends who have your back and for those who tell you that they hope to see you suceed. be happy that you have those people.

the world is in our hands, we just got to know what we could make of it.


I have learned (via twitter) the resignation of Steven Paul Jobs, a.k.a. Steve Jobs, a.k.a. CEO of Apple Computer, Inc. And I was so affected in a way I didn’t expect and couldn’t explain. I was never close friends with Apple, until just recently. I googled up details about his resignation and I found a text of his letter here. It states the following:

August 24, 2011 06:34 PM Eastern Daylight Time 
Letter from Steve Jobs
CUPERTINO, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.


Right after I read the first paragraph, I got goosebumps! So I research further about him. I stumbled upon this page posting his Commencement address at Standford University in 2005. It sounded familiar to me but I couldn’t remember where and when I read it, maybe when I was preparing my own speech early this year for the graduates of my secondary school.

I’m in the middle of his speech right now and I couldn’t help myself to share with you his story. You start to read as I continue where I stopped. So here it goes:

‘You’ve got to find what you love,’ Jobs says

This is a prepared text of the Commencement address delivered by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, on June 12, 2005.

I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.
