Do Work Son! — Motivational iPhone Wallpapers

One day, I just woke up feel­ing tired. I recall that it was in the mid­dle of the week—Wednesday, aka. Hump Day. I had to force myself just to go out of the house for work. I was so close to call in sick; call it a day, and just rest it out in bed. But alas, a luke­warm show­er helped me enough to get myself to go to the City and work.

As the day pro­gressed and reached the ear­ly evening, I remem­bered that there was so much stuff I need to get done after work. One of them was to pro­ceed w/ Hal Higdon’s train­ing and SET class @ 24. Feel­ing so damn lazy and tired, I mus­tered enough deter­mi­na­tion to get myself to go over that 50/50 mark. I was stuck at the mid­way point for a while and was lean­ing to just not go; and instead, chill at home.

What is Twitter?

A cou­ple of friends and fam­i­ly have been ask­ing:

  • What’s up w/ the sta­tus updates I see quite often?
  • What’s w/ the “@” (at sym­bol) next to names on your sta­tus?
  • What the heck is a tweet?
  • etc.

Rather than point­ing them to Twitter’s site, I rather just show them this video:

Sick. I like the Back to the Future/DeLorean scene. Not to men­tion, the char­ac­ter designs by Takashi Muraka­mi.
