TNC Pro Team - New team member

Ryor was replaced by 1437.

I haven't heard of 1437 so I googled and found his liquipedia page. I don't know what to think, but I trust the judgement of the TNC management. They know what's best for the team. I hope to see the team succeed on tournaments. The first test will be on their invite at starladder.

Day 88

I found 2 websites today that may help me with my fitness journey.

My Fitness Pal

and

Natalie Jill Fitness

I didn't mention the fitness pal in my video below, only the free ebook from Natalie Jill's website. I already downloaded the ebook, but haven't finished all 43 pages of it yet.

Smart LTE Pocket Wifi

ang black pocket wifi na may nakasulat na evoluzn sa likod.

Bwisit na pocket wifi na 'to, halos 2,000 pesos ko binili pero 2 days ko ng hindi magamit dahil hindi makakuha ng signal. Naka subscribe ako sa 15 hours na flexitime para sa smart bro prepaid na yan, tapos di ko magamit dahil walang makuhang signal.

Meron naman LTE signal dito sa amin dahil naka subscribe ako sa giga50 ng smart dun sa cellphone ko at kaya ko nasusulat yung blogpost na 'to ngayon, yun yung gamit ko.

Pangalawang beses na nangyari 'to sa akin, nung una, nag-contact ako sa smart sa facebook at wala naman kwenta kasi pagkatapos nila makuha info ko, ilang hours bago nag reply ulet at sinabi lng na observe ko yung wifi ko within 24 hours lolz. Bumalik nga yung signal and ok naman cya ng ilang weeks. Tapos ngayon nangyari na naman.

2 days na akong walang signal, hinintay ko for 1 day, baka bumalik signal, wla pa rin, nag-create n lng ako ng ticket sa customer support sa smart website and waiting ulet. Hay naku, kung ganito service ng smart (pldt) or ng globe, tapos wala pang makapasok na foreign investors para makapag compete sa kanila, pinaka walang kwenta na sa buong mundo ang internet ng pilipinas siguro lolz.

Pero baka may pag-asa pa naman, di ko alam kung may connection ang converge sa pldt or sa iba pang telecom companies, pero dito sa pampanga, parang sila lang yung magandang internet company, kaso ang mahal per month, 1500, so kelangan kong paghandaan yung gagastusin per month kung mag-subscribe ako sa kanila. Di ko lng alam kung maganda connection nila sa area ko, dito sa dau, search ko muna.

Day 83

How many weeks had passed since the last time I posted on this fitness journey. I don't want to start over again, but I completely lost track of my fitness activities lolz. I just computed how many days after my day 1 in February 15, so that gives me Day 83 by now, May 8, 2017. I have not really been serious on doing effort everyday towards improving my fitness routine.

I'm now 205 lbs. I didn't really change the way I eat, but I did make small changes, I am now drinking warm water. I'd like to do it everyday, but I seem not able to at the moment, but I will definitely be able to do it in the future. I am pumped up and I learned that I should use positive words because words become our reality, so instead of focusing too much on the negative things, I will promise myself to improve and use words that will make it possible.

Tomorrow would be a good time to start again my walking exercise every morning. I have to sleep at 9pm to be able to wake up at 5am and do my morning exercise. It's 7pm now, so that gives me 2 hours more to write my blogposts, browse facebook and play wartune. It will really be a big sacrifice for me to choose not to play wartune lolz.

My zumba sessions with my aunt and cousins are still ongoing. 4 days in a week, 1 hour per day we have a session.

This is a photo of me at my niece's 18th birthday a few days ago.

TNC eliminated at Kiev 2017

I can't move on 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢

TNC was eliminated by Faceless at Kiev Major 2017. The score was 2-1. TNC lost and my heart really broke that day. I mean I know I'm being overly dramatic, but that's really how I feel, even now, to think that they almost got it.... but didn't.... sigh....

And I'm not even the one who played my heart out there and gave it my all. I just watched my favorite team do it.

This is what Kuku tweeted about their loss


I feel sad just thinking about it, but I also realized something that I've heard Bo Sanchez (catholic preacher) say, to Fail tiny, Fail many, Fail quickly. Failure makes you stronger and gives you insights when you reflect on it.

When I felt that hurt yesterday, what I'm thinking is if it hurt to just watch your favorite team be eliminated from a major tournament, what more if I fail on something that I really wanted, it would hurt more.... so what I want to do now is to try to fail again and again on tiny things to make myself immune to hurt, and then go for big dreams too, so even if I fail again, I will no longer be so emotional and affected by it.

I just want to watch the game 2 of their fight with Faceless. This is the video with tagalog casting. It was the first time that I saw Kuku use windranger and they won. They lost game 3 but at least it was not 2-0, they at least won one game against their archenemy.

ICEICEICE

You can see the detailed results here of ICEICEICE teams on various tournaments. I hate him hahahahaha as a fan of TNC, but on the other hand I also admire him coz he experienced a fair share of failures too before he achieved so much this year 2017.

I admire him, but I still want to see his team be pulverized by my favorite team TNC lolz.

He has been playing professional DOTA since 2011. Of course, it's not a one-man show, his team faceless has chemistry and skills that propelled them to be 1st on various tournaments, but I think his experience in Dota contributed a lot to his decision makings while playing dota in pressured games and of course contributed to his team's success.

MY OWN FAILURE?

I don't really know the feeling of giving it your all, give your whole heart on something and then fail to achieve what you wanted. I don't know how that feel because I don't remember an instance that I ever did that. I always played it safe and I have tried things because I know I will succeed at them.

That is why I admire TNC for striving to achieve what they want, to get to their dream of being a champion in Dota Majors and The International.

Even with this blogging, I don't really take risks. I write blogposts and then I don't share them on my facebook account lolz, only those I think that people may like, those are the things I share. But, from now on, I will give this blog my whole heart and publish my honest thoughts and share them in my facebook account.

Fail tiny, Fail many, Fail quickly.

TNC at Kiev 2017

This is the playlist of all the games of TNC at Kiev. I will update this set of videos when they have new games, so check this playlist from time to time. I put notes on the videos to indicate if they are english casting or tagalog ones and if tnc won or lost in that particular game. (you will see the notes, when you click here)



I would like to congratulate Raven for having a record for valve events
of 33 kills in one game. That is game 2 against thunderbirds in group stage. Of course, Raven is a great carry player, but we cannot disregard the whole team effort of TNC which contributed to those kills. So, kudos to Raven and the whole TNC pro team.




I am loving TNC more and more... I think Puppey (of team Secret) said it right in this tweet of Manila Masters:

I love them not only because they are a super great team, but also because they are chasing their dreams. They are truly my inspiration!! Like them, I want to go for my dream too... of being the greatest blogger. Well, I also want to have my own TNC internet branch in our area. I have lots of dreams, but for now I'm going to focus on blogging.

I am writing this Tuesday night, 8pm manila time.... and only two days before the main event of Kiev Major. I am super excited and I think in the game day of the main event, I will be more nervous than the TNC players hahahahaa.

It is so nerve-wracking to take on single elimination tournaments, I mean you only get a few hours to show that you got what it takes to win against your opponent. Those crucial hours are so stressful, but they have done it before in TI6, although tims and ryoyr were not there at that time. 

I admire them for doing something that I feel I can't at the moment. To be able to take risks and lay it out on the line for your dream. Wow. Giving it your heart and soul to every game, I will be heartbroken if they lose to faceless on game day, but of course, what can you do but make it a lesson learned. However, if they win, I will celebrate by watching all of their Kiev 2017 games hahahhaha and choose my favorite plays and put it on this blog.

I asked the admin of their official fb page how they mentally prepare themselves before a game, but I'm not expecting a reply since they are pretty busy.
