Synthesis

From all the articles provided, it is clear that the use of SMS for an inquiry system will produce an efficient project. As people would be happier from getting fast results, using what they use frequently, and get answers at anytime and anywhere of the day, more and more people would likely use this as far as they are connected.

Proving that if the system will be implemented in the Philippines, that boasts a number of people using short messaging system, people can create a better and easier way in producing answers for the community they are into. Also, because a lot of people use it, it is practically normal to have the system in a place where people have knowledge on it and grown accustomed to it.

Grouping each item from all the articles, the proponents would piece together the foundation of the system by finding out the immediate logical diagram. As shown from the SMS Network Architecture, a pertinent diagram was shown and will be followed by the proponents in creating their system in terms of sending and receiving. They will use GSM and SMS Gateway/Server as a basis of the way the messages of users and the system goes through certain entities. It will provide a connection for the GSM mobile phones that would be used by the user and the system itself. In terms of wireless sending information and understanding, broadband details are to be implemented to ensure fast response between the system and the user. The SMS Inquiry System will be the foundation of the proponents’ thesis. Convenience is shown and the security of replying fast is built. Text NAPOLCOM will be a basis for the keyword technique of the system. The Ozeki Message Server will guide the proponents in creating the database and help them in managing the sending and receiving of messages.

While that in line, it is the goal of the proponents to do the same thing; to provide a fast response system about what questions were frequently asked by users. The system will respond at the moment the user sends a keyword and their queries would be answered.

Working Out?

A while back I remember working out with a couple of friends. But they got tired of bringing more and more clothes and we got more busy so we stopped. Knowing myself, how I can find time on anything other than studies, I can continue to work out, even when there were no friends around me. But why did I stop? I hate impressing people with lies. That’s why I never want to work out anymore. Exercise is a better idea. Nonetheless, I won’t give a damn ’bout what people say to my body. Well, that’s me guys. :P

Non-Functional Requirements

Non-functional requirements define the overall qualities or attributes of the resulting system. It places restrictions on the product being developed, the development process and specify external constraints that the product must meet.

In connection with this, we would list the technical requirements of our system which pertain to the technical aspects that our system must fulfill, such as performance-related issues, reliability issues, and security issues. These types of requirements affect the Quality of Service (QoS) thus, specify criteria that can be used to judge the operation of our system, rather than the specific behaviors.

Under technical requirements are 4 more requirements that our system look into.

In terms of Performance Requirements, we need to specify the timing characteristics of the software such as workloads, response time, and available storage space. Our proposed system is intended to comply with constraints such as the ability to respond within 5 seconds, a maximum of 2 seconds for having 10 active users at a time and having up to 3-10 seconds of response time for a query search. All of these should work 99% of the time to ensure efficiency in the system. Our system also will also deal with the requisites of ensuring the system can process transactions within the time frame, eliminate late system deployment and avoidable system rework due to performance issues and avoid additional and unnecessary hardware acquisition costs brought about by performance concerns.

Reliability requirements relate to the dependability and consistency of the system during operation. These also include how capable the system is when it comes to coping during system failure and how it is able to maintain the integrity of the information it carries. Our system would provide a system back-up, monthly maintenance and the ability to handle multiple transactions without crashing. These are probabilities with regards to the reliability of the system. The failure that might possibly occur as the system operates is looked upon as a random phenomenon, meaning it is a recurring event and it does not express any information on individual failures, the cause of failures, or relationship between failures, except that the likelihood for failures to occur varies over time according to the given probability function. Though reliability is indicated as the intended function, any operation in contradiction to what the system is supposed to do is considered to be against the reliability of the system. Also, the reliability of the system applies to a specific period of time. There will be variations since it will depend on the number of failures that will occur in the specific period of time given.

Next, on usability requirements that is about specifying the user interface and end-user interaction with the system. To meet these requirements, our system intends to provide a user-friendly interface to the end-users. Considering that the expected users of the system have working knowledge of the computer, the activities in the system, from authentication to the different events, will be easy for them. The system will also provide information which is constant so end-users will just have to choose, giving them less work to do or to input. One, the website will use simple English. Two, the icons would be logical in design. Three, the interface will be consistent in terms of design and flow of transactions. Four, actions which cannot be undone or require discreet understanding would ask for confirmation. Last, the screen color and appearance would not be a hindrance to using the site but have a rather cool color to not torment users.

Lastly in terms of security requirements, we are to implement the conditions as follows in different entities. For the customers, they must have an account in our site, they must secure the password of their account, they can only access the status of their delivery transaction and can only update it if it is on awaiting status to cancel the order, and/or ongoing delivery status to activate the redeemed status. For the shipping clerk, they must have an employee account in our site, they must secure the password of their account, and they can only approve awaiting transactions. Lastly, for the shipping manager, they must have a managerial account in our site, must secure the password of their account, they can update the status of delivery transactions except the paid status, and as a manager, they have access to the reports.

Our database and website handlers will do our best in attaining every requirement listed above. Rest assured, the site and database will run smoothly for the users to have easy transactions with the shipping firm.

And here I am not in the mood to talk about anything. I feel ill inside. Not physically, but emotionally. I hope I don’t bring down the group later with this feeling, but there’s just something inside that makes me want to zip my mouth. I can’t skip classes so I can’t keep this to myself like this. *Sigh* why does everything have to be like this.

February 21, 2012

This day wasn’t unlike any other, even though I listed this in the “Everyday Blogging” Category.

 

After blogging my longest blog yet here, I decided to watch Kanon 2006. I finished it this day also, around 4:15am. Watching Kanon after Clannad changed the way I see about miracles. Miracles can happen, if the faith of two people are strong enough. This is now, how I see myself in the future.

 

Shaking off the feeling and tears (yes, it’s a bit like Clannad so I cried), I went to school early. I started reviewing as soon as Samuel came inside. Quiz in SOC9. Went better than I had expected though. I may not get a high score, but I think I will pass. Upon finishing the exam, we went out, and unexpectedly, she talked to me. That stirred me up of course. I was starting to get sick of myself letting her talk to me first. I feel like the fear I have is leaving a barricade around me again. But then again once we started to talk, all those fear and anxiety go away. I am happy and carefree as ever. I am comfortable in away that I can tell anything and everything honestly.

 

But the way she said, “Usap tayo mamaya“. Sounded like what every guy thinks it would be like. Either in courting or in a relationship, it’s like a dropping a nuclear bomb that will wreck all life form in the Earth. Okay, I maybe over-reacting, but that’s the way I imagined it. But to be realistic, I just felt something bad will happen. We talked all the way down the stairs and stopped in front of Engineering building. She said bye and we parted ways.

 

It was Frankie time a while ago. And I was supposed to come back for the last batch lab activity. Actually I’ve missed 2 weeks already and decided to skip this week too. I feel stupid because I don’t know what to do in there. And I hate him for not being able to teach well. Nasayang ang tuition ko grabe. Sometimes I just want to ignore him for the rest of the semester, but I guess I can’t do that. I would try to learn now in my own how that subject works so the next time I come he won’t say “Wala ka pang alam“. She wanted me to go though. I couldn’t push through cause my mind was set that time. Sorry. We went to Kevin’s dorm that time to do our SAD project. We stayed until 12:40 there. And remembering that I need to talk to that girl, even though nobody wanted to go to class, I stood up and tried to go out. A moment later, they were fixing stuffs and I went out the room.

 

Reaching ICS Lab 3 alone (cause Samuel and Louie had to print a file), I sat near her. And like lazy beings we rolled our computer chairs to each other and started to talk. It was clear to myself that I couldn’t look at her eye-to-eye so I started spinning my seat. But the way we talked, telling everything from embarrassing or not, made me really, really comfortable. The joke made me a slow person though, haha. Dang that “City Joke”.

 

But she told me what I needed to hear. She wasn’t ready. Which I understood of course. As far as I remember from everyone I’ve talked to, I remember someone saying she’s not ready for that kind of¬†relationship¬†or something. I couldn’t pick anything else to say because I don’t hold anything. I just understood her side even though it’s just like that. I also couldn’t blame her on saying that this might be leftovers from my feelings with Rika. I told her everything after all. But in this case, I highly doubt that is what I’m feeling. She might not think the same, but I guess if time would allow me, I will show her how sincere I am. So from that, I will wait for the time she is ready I guess. You’re a man Erick, you can do it.

 

She left that time, they needed to go. And I was at the lab with my friends again. I didn’t tell anything to them yet. I feel like reflecting, but as I am blogging about it right now, I think I have reflected enough to say it to anyone. I have to sleep now though, been awake for 24 hours already. Good Afternoon people. :)

Post 02/14 Post

Well, I’ve been on quite a hiatus in managing this blog. And it feels good to be back. The memories flourishing inside my body gives me the goosebumps. But I have to endure that, endure this fleeting feeling that makes me scared. Hay.

 

So this is about what happened weeks before February 14, the most important parts.

 

Back October 6, 2011, Samuel and I was waiting in front of the Eng’g building for the people who had¬†been invited for a celebration for a successful short film named TALAS: Junior Detective. We were laughing almost¬†every time¬†remembering the¬†embarrassing¬†scenes we showed in class. While that happened, Pauline and a beautiful girl came walking towards us. The girl was going home and Pauline was accompanying her to where she will ride (cause Pauline was coming with us that time). The girl asked me.. “Sabay ka?” I replied “Hindi eh, may pupuntahan kami *smile*“. The girl smiled then went away. Samuel was looking at me, in a weird grin. Kind of like teasing me in some way, then suddenly saying “Erick! No!”. Curious, I was thinking what it meant but.. for a millisecond though, cause in like a split second, I understood what he meant by teasing me like that. I knew. I knew what he was teasing me, and I said in reply “No! No! *coversmyface* No no no!”. I was sure I was blushing that time. But yeah, because of that annoying big (non-biological)brother of mine, I realized how much I liked that girl. Starting there, I was teased by Pauline, Louie and Samuel all the time.

 

In realizing those feelings of mine, I became scared that she might be thinking of the same. I was scared cause she might reject me, like all of the girls who knew whatever I have felt. We did talk and went home and/or went to school together, but that made me more afraid of what’s to come. And starting then, I’ve had ¬†difficulty asking her if we could go to school together. I’ve come to hate my guts again. Why was it always like this.

 

December came. What was the¬†occasion? PASKUHAN! :D I was saving my money for this day. And like for some people (because after Paskuhan, I realized many people did plan the same thing), I have only one thing planned for Paskuhan. To give her a necklace during the¬†Pyromusical. There was another plot too, having her blindfolded by someone, then I slowly would put on her the necklace not touching the neck. Then as I close the lock, I would ask somebody to bump her as I let go, so it would feel like nothing has been done. But I had that plan when I was going to Paskuhan, so that was a no. :( So I was saving money by that time, but then Samuel, Kevin and Louie asked for us to go and eat at BK before Paskuhan at SM San Lazaro. And I said “Aw ayoko dyan. Nagiipon ako, mauubos pera ko dyan sa BK“. But then they replied “Okay lang, di naman kami magugutom”.¬†Then they went in. I was like really? Now, you’re gonna say those to me? -_- I ended up eating there and not being able to buy the necklace I saw at Silverworks. That bummed me out and I fell out of mood until Paskuhan. They had a spot at the front part of Grandstand, but I decided to stay with my other family(B). Paskuhan ended without me doing anything. Damn it, Erick.

 

We did see each other and went together to school in the LRT, but pure coincidence. It was winter break, yay! Then I realized I did not even save money, okay. :( All that I could think about was her. When our annual Christmas party was coming, I knew with a little hope that I would have money at hand. We even talked in FB, I told her I couldn’t text ’cause I had no load. Lies. I was actually saving my money to buy her something. And yes I did save a bit of money. Enough for me to ask my sister what kind of stuffs girls like. But then I went back to my usual plan of buying a necklace. My sister helped me out this time and she picked a beautiful necklace. I got excited all of a sudden and thanked my sister. But as we got home.. “Teka, pano ko bibigay to? *sigh*“.

 

January 2012 came. Back to classes, and this time I even became more indifferent. I hated what I was doing, but the feeling of anxiety and fear crept up and built like a fortress around me. It was reaaaaaaaally hard going out of that fortress. Most of the time, or maybe all the time, she was the first to talk so we could have a little chit-chat. Although I was happy, at the back of my mind, I was raging like hell ’cause I couldn’t even try to talk to her. And even the necklace part, Pauline and I made a plan that I give to this girl the necklace by January 6, so it would be 3 months. Kind of like the 3 month rule. But I didn’t get the chance to give it to her that day. But starting January 6 till February 13, the necklace was inside my bag the whole time.

 

February 14. Valentines Day. The night before that, Louie and Sam kept pushing me everytime I tweeted random stuffs. They told me like “Ano plano?“, “Ano balak mo?“, “Pano na bukas?“. I even asked a serious question, Louie answered it but then again asked what I was planning. I got irritated that time and decided not to do anything on 14. I took a nap and woke up 2am. Reflecting on what tomorrow is, I stood up..

 

I kept a paper of a draft about what I wanted to tell that girl. I looked for it as I decided to re-write it in another stationary. After re-writing it, it was like 3:30 already and I went up looking for a little bag that the letter and gift would fit in. I found one at my sister’s room. A little pink handmade bag. I ran down looking at the clock, 4:15. I put everything in the pink bag then inside my school bag. Bagception. Anyways, I raced on doing every¬†hygienic¬†thing as possible and got ready by 5:15. It was early to go out, so I decided to blog that time about her. But it became an unfinished work as it was 5:45 already, and I decided to go to school.

 

At school I was indiferrent for like 45 minutes until Pauline shouted at me “Hoy! 14 na, anong balak mo!“. That, well, that triggered my soft side. I suddenly felt what I was doing and suddenly covered my face, afraid of blushing in public cause of¬†embarrassment. But I pulled myself together and told her “May ibibigay lang ako.” And like friends seeing other friends fall in love and give effort,¬†kinilig siya.¬†Haha. I was like having a WTF moment. Almost all the time ’cause all of their eyes were on me. Samuel, Kevin, Louie, Pauline, Elaine, Thea Flores, Chola, Thea Kurotsuchi, Karl, Ciepa and all others that I didn’t tell first hand but knew anyway. As time went on, I caved in and told Samuel, Louie and Pauline that I was planning to wait for her to finish her IT104L time. That was 10am-1pm, so I had 3 hours to wait. I was circling around the 5th floor, where my SAD group mates were working, and the 4th floor, where she was. By 10:40 I saw Kevin Leechang around the hallway of the 4th floor. We talked about everything we planned on the girls we liked. It was kind of refreshing ’cause I know I have someone to talk to about this stuffs. That there’s someone else going through what I am going through. By 11:20 he said he has to meet with Paul Ronquillo, I decided to come with them on whatever adventure. Which leaded us to Dangwa, the nearest place to buy roses. Apparently, Paul was gonna buy roses for her girlfriend Ragee. And I decided to buy too. I wanted to buy a dozen but it would cost 2160php(w/c is not yet arranged). I didn’t have that big of money in my wallet, so I decided to for one only that cost 250. If only I had saved a lot of money. :( But yeah, I didn’t expect I would buy a rose this time. I went back alone and reached Engineering building around 12:10pm. 5th floor was the first place I went to. I sat and chatted with them. But sometime after that, Miguel went up and told me that they were done..

 

Suddenly I said “Seryoso?! Di pa ako ready! Hala“. Then I stood up, then Samuel, Kevin, Louie and Vina went down to watch. I went down last and before I even got near the room, the girl was outside, probably going to the restroom. I turned back, as in 180 degrees. That time that I turned back I was feeling so many things. Shyness, Awkwardness, Fear, Embarrassment, Kilig? But before I even stepped further, a part of me made me turn back around. Facing her, she had the look of teasing me. I think she was gonna ask who was that for. “Para kanino yan?“. She asked. I was right, but then I said “Para sa’yo“. She suddenly panicked went to Samuel, Louie and the others asking “Weh! Seryoso ba to?“. She repeated that for a while as she came near to everyone, then everyone decided to move farther away from us. She looked at me and asked again. I told her “Seryoso ako“. She then stopped in front of me.

 

I actually was out of words. I alternately looked for my friends shifting to covering my face stuttering in front of the girl in front of me. She asked me when this started, I told her last year October. Then I was out of words again and she kept saying “Naiiyak ka ba?” and I replied “Hindi, nahihiya lang talaga ako“. Then covering my face again. I told her some of the stuffs I put in the letter like why it started, why her, but she told me “Wala pa ako mai-rereply dito“. I said “Okay lang, di naman ako nageexpect ng kahit ano“. I also told her that I haven’t ever confessed personally to a girl. She then threw the girls I liked from the past, I told her she knew that herself. ‘Cause as far as I know, she knows it better than anyone else. She is my best friend after all. But now no, she is my priority. I will not stop here. I know I can do stuffs at my own pace, but I will try my best to change this way. As they have said, to get something you’ve never got, you must do something you’ve never done. She then escorted me to where my group was and from there we parted. The only thing I was feeling there was relief and happiness. I’ve finally told her! :)

 

So here I am, February 20. Blogging my heart out. I hope she reads this in some way. But she knows what I want to tell her anyway. Randomly saying, I put the necklace inside a Bench Fix Clay DOH can that I cleaned beforehand. The reason why I put it there is because I would put the gift for the most important girl in my life, to the most important material in my life. Not the usual sweet speech everyone is looking for, but it means a lot to me. She means a lot to me.

 

Take care always, Aira Cheyenne Ramos. I am still your best friend, but I am giving you another option. It’s all up to you. :)
