👋 Oi, mga repapips, Brian Dys here! I love music, photography, and creative stuff like UX design and art. This is a place where I collect my thoughts and works. Apart all these, I’m Jaycelle’s better half and Bryce’s dad. 🥰
Plant seeds in the neighborhood, grow fruits in your yard.
Developing one’s turf must be a priority before developing others. It is my patriotic principle why I am proud to be one of the workforces in our country. I, alone, am contributing a meager amount of help but I won’t feel the same contributing any help from a faraway land.
I might be speaking in tongues but I’m talking about my awareness of living in Manila, Philippines and my constant struggle in finding the balance between my personal hopes & dreams and this land’s baby steps into a better future.

I’ve always wanted to be the guy that has the best barbecue that you walk away from and you go, “We gotta go back to that guy’s place – it was a laugh and there was plenty of food and it was all good fun.”

From the Podcast, Unfinished Business Episode 77: Dirty, filthy, paid ads
I’ve decided that I’m going out on my own. Like I’m gonna write my own products, I’m gonna get my qualifications. I’m going out. I’m ready to put the money, the financial investment into it and everything else. I’m ready.

That means you’re leaving your plateau.

If you want to make a big difference to an industry or a big change in your own life, you’re never gonna do it playing it safe.

You can’t achieve anything just sitting back and watching other people do it.

Music plays a substantial part of my everyday life. From activity to inactivity, it’s like second to the air that I breathe.
Apparently, there’s a thing called “second album syndrome” or the sophomore slump. But this isn’t anything about the literal first-released album of a musician but the first album of that musician you’ve heard of and all the songs in the collection kicked ass.
I noticed this after numerous times I have liked an artist/musician mostly for that one album – the first album that let me discover them. It may have stemmed out from the repetitive playback of that record until it came to mind to try to discover other albums of the same artist but seldom have I liked two in a row.
