I have the following passions: computers, art and programming.

I figured how this translates to work in the real world.

I have been doing what I like.

I am doing Tech Journalism, Software Development and Tutoring/Teaching.

These are the things I can do.

Tech Journalism

Writing is based on my experiences of being a tweaker, modder, and “being cheap” viewpoints.

Software Development

I just create what I like. I produce software to tweak and customize for computer technicians and IT administrators. I don’t think I can work for a company developing for them or do freelance.


I have been tutoring and teaching for a while. I rather tutor rather than teach. I don’t really see myself in front of a classroom full with students yet as I am not confident. I am actually tutoring a friend right now and it is great. I think I would like to open my own tutoring center one day as my bread and butter.

I recently applied to become a high school teacher. If I get in locally this year (Fall 2022), I will go ahead and try to do it. I applied to teach senior year biology and chemistry. I will hopefully find a way to teach computers later through part time schooling. Having this degree (Bachelor of Education) will be my “meal ticket” for life I think. Having this degree will solidify my tutoring/teaching.

I think I have found my occupations in life now.

Working when you are older

You can go out there and compete for the same job or destress and do your own thing. I am too old to compete. I am doing my own thing without the barrage of every single interaction. Whatever happens happens. Regardless, I think I will be OK. I think I worked outside long enough that I should not try to build myself up to be ‘someone’ different/more??? Do I need to change? I think you can not …

Why Computer Work?

Why work in fields that are more subjective with biases and cultural stereotypes?

I found studying and working in computers the least amount of subjectivity.

Yes, I like computers a lot and I am doing what I want but the topic of tweaking and modding does not have much subjectiveness at all I feel.

And tweaking and modding is just fun.

Life should be fun. Everything should be fun.

I am not going to work in a field/topic that has subjectiveness involving race or culture.

So computers is where I will stay and luckily I like it too.


The things I create with my friends are basically not for profit.

How to make money while doing our passions? I got to think some more.

Working for a company will definitely change my ways ….

Education and Application for me

Most people say education is key in life and we never stop learning. What is education? Is it just amassing knowledge? What do you do with all this learning? How do you apply it? Is it about power? Is it cultural? Is it health? Is it business? Is it practical? Is it streamlined? Is it automation? Is it artificial intelligence? I think the answer is you just do what you feel like. Do your interests. Keep doing what you like. Even your interests may change over time as you get older so you just continue to learn and do. Circumstances may change.

I would like to try to live as a developer and do things to gain new experiences and in turn create software solutions. I like to try to create solutions that is different and reflects me. I create with my friends. Having a optimistic, forward and progressive team was the key component in what I am doing now.

An example of reflection of me is the current Windows 10 Debloater design. It shows the PowerShell script to allow for transparency and teaches scripting.

I struggled all my life with programming and education and finding mentors and teachers to help me. I still struggle. I thought it would be nice to create a tool that taught scripting to help people learn “logic” while being a fun tool in itself to customize and modify Windows. Learning scripting/programming is helpful for everyone as it teaches you how to think and process more logically. By thinking logically you might be able to solve more problems including problems with yourself. Learning programming eased most of my impulsive behavior. Thinking logically can ease emotions.

Also I do this type of software development to escape reality. By working solely in the mind you forget the physical. The physical world reality feels limiting and classist.

There is always a reason for doing the things we do. It could be from simple enjoyment or even suffering. We all suffer in some form. It could be multiple different reasons.

I try to enable others where I have been hurt and mistreated before as I don’t want others to suffer what I endured.

It is a hard tough competitive world out there. We can all try to work together thinking as a team as mature people.

We may reach a level where we see things objectively and just do the things we want.

I am fortunate to work with very altruistic friends bringing me into their world and share a common goal.

Work and Hobby

Doing school assignments is kind of like work? Yes and no … mostly no

I tried working as web developer for a couple of places and found it difficult. Difficult because it was more designing than backend coding.

The employers I was encountering had a vision and level that was so unique and hard to reach for me. When it is so subjective like this I am lost.

I just want a to design a site like every other major company with a different coat of paint and unique logo. That is it! LOL

I think it is best for me to tutor for a living in tutoring centers and/or online so I have time for myself to be healthy and well doing the things I want and need.


The purpose of life is work. Work to a point where you can be your own boss.

Serve and Help

I like serving. It helps me.

I saw this reel and I finally understand the way I act and do things:

The act of serving has given me happiness and makes me satisfied.

I do get something in return too. So it is not selfless.

I gain knowledge and skills and accomplish things alongside the people I help and serve.

People used to dislike me how cooperative and helpful I was.

I realized just now this behaviour is healthy and makes me happy in my perspective.


It is hard to work to do everything alone. I get stressed and lonely and feel despair.

Luckily I have my friends Ben Cybulski and Dmitry Nefedov to brighten my day.

This brotherhood has given me friendship and goals.

We work produce pretty cool software I think and have fun doing it.

Without these guys I would be stressed all day thinking pretty bleak and gloomy.

I wonder now after finishing school how can I work now to produce money in programming.


Life gets to a point where you are looking just to do what you want in what time you have left on this planet.

You understand what you like to do everyday. You like to spend time alone. Like to spend time alone doing what you like.

This feeling and understanding is after working a ton with people in all sorts of environments.

I need to make enough money to be calm, collected and free to do what I want. Everyone needs this.

It is not selfish or excessive. Everyone needs peace of mind and a sanctuary.

Backup Plan B

Is it ok to have a Backup Plan B?

At my age of 39 years old I think you can do something on the side.

I write this blog which is helpful for me. I get to talk from my perspective as a Vietnamese-Canadian growing up in Durham Region in Ontario in Canada.

Life gets different when you get older. After finishing first school in 2008, I was lost. But after finishing my diploma in computer programming this year in 2023 now I have something because math is everything. Computer Programming is the way to handle information/data.

When I studied life sciences nothing felt concrete.

Programming helped to make things all make sense or at least processed into a computer.

You are not dealing with just memorization or just emotions no more. You got numbers to build and back things up.

Anyways for work, I plan to talk about myself on my journey with this blog. I think my perspective will be interesting for other Vietnamese-Canadians wishing to further educate themselves and work in Canada.

This is life now. How to work now.

How do you live life in the 21st century?

Stay tuned.

Working with People

It is great to work with people. But how about working alone too?

I think at this point in my life I am supposed to have a solid opinion in something I believe in.

That way I succeed in something.

I think you can do good having something to call your own.

There are 8 billion people on this planet. People should/could be different. Different enough to be something different.

So far I have been doing shared goals with my group and haven’t been doing much stuff on my own.

My world is small if I am alone. But I am not feeling myself working in groups.

I think I need the time to just do things on my own so I can grow and become whole like a unique person instead of being a blanket covering a bunch of interests and things.

Let’s take time to do what I truly want and fulfill my needs and goals.

How else can I do work if I just doing little of this and a little of that? Must have some redeeming quality worth hiring.

It is just Work

The only thing that feels worthwhile these days is just working on school (a bit) and doing “work”.

A man is supposed to be defined by his work I heard.

I guess that is mostly what I should concentrate on these days as I have almost found my new grove.

My new grove is to be independent as possible doing my own stuff now.

Life is about Work

After finishing school, I realized life is just about work.

It has been a long time to realize that I needed computer programming to do the work I want and need.
