Not So BS-Proof After All  

Posted in , ,

The title says it all. I guess all good things do come to an end. I bet she's laughing her guts out (I hope she is, literally) while holding her P35,000 paycheck. Oh well.

I just got back from the provinces after attending the burial of my mom's sister Tita Elvie. At least her suffering from her long battle with liver cancer is now over. At least I think it was liver cancer.

It's time for me to look for new and better (and hopefully BS-proof) employment. Hold that thought while I update my resume.

Coming and Going  

Posted in ,

I'm starting to get annoyed by all the stories I'm hearing about people planning to leave the company. I knew this would happen months ago but what i don't like is them sort of subtly encouraging some of our other colleagues to leave too. I know everybody has thought about leaving this company, what with everything that's happened in the past few weeks, but I just wished they'd think about it real hard first and make a decision of their own. I hope they don't decide to leave just because they see that others are jumping ship too. I honestly am tempted to join the pack but being the anti-conformist that I am, I want to believe that I'd make my decision based on how I feel. That and the fact that I don't want to start all over again. I've worked hard to be in the position that I am now. I'm not happy with what's happening at work nowadays, but hey, the show has to go on.

Its hard enough to see some of my closest friends at work leave. It's even harder to think that the ones that are still here are also thinking about leaving. Its just so sad.

So Far, So Good

So it’s time once again for this literary genius (wannabe) to spill his guts out to a faceless audience on the internet. It’s been exactly 5 months and 3 days today since I last spoke with a certain colleague of mine. I never thought fights could last this long! It doesn't bother me too much now though, and I’m not exactly eager to patch things up with her after what she did. Sorry, no details. Anyway, at least I’m in good terms now with the other protagonist in the sensational scandal to start 2008. And I am grateful for that (You reading this?). Really, thanks.

This year also marked the beginning of a new chapter in my call center career. I got bumped over to marketing, and I’d have to admit it’s pretty much like trying to learn French. But as the title says: so far so good. I am learning a lot from this new experience and I can never say enough about how much I appreciate everything that has happened to me work-wise. I think I’ve mentioned this before in my previous posts but whenever I look back to where I came from, and realize how far I’ve come – it’s a mind-blower. It’s one of those very rare moments when I truly am proud of myself. But I know I still have a long way to go, so I remain vigilant. Or at least I try to be.

I’ve also lost a couple of good friends at work this year. I mean the ones that I wish had stayed left, and the one that I had hoped would leave hasn’t. Oh well. Dianne, Ram, and RJ – I wish you guys all the best.

Two thousand and eight also celebrated my 29th birthday. Twenty nine effing years!?? I mean, who knew!?

I guess I’ve spilled enough guts for this post. And Shane if you’re reading this thanks for mentioning me on your blog. As you say, alak na!

There is one other very significant detail about this post that I had intentionally left out. That’s for an entirely different entry. I’m not sure if I want to talk about that part yet. ‘Til here for now. Ciao!!
