I’m going back to my old life…after I get accustomed to dealing with UNIX.
It’s been a busy year for me. Ever since I started working, I’ve reduced my ostensible weekly worshiping to my Mecca, the Power Plant Mall; not only that, I’ve lessened the Emba-slash-Ascend partying. All I do now is sleep as much as I can when I’m at home. No wee hour phone calls for me. No nightly premium caffeine overloading (FYI! I stopped drinking coffee 6 months ago until the Sbucks Planner’s available again).

I know, I know! I am living a humdrum life! Let me rephrase that…I am living a very challenging life. If not for the projects and the project managers calling you when they receive an out of the office auto reply to their email, my life could have been easier and more fun! Well, I just have to adjust to this kinda living.

I went to the office as a support to a particular system yesterday. Usually, I get really worried when it comes to handling servers, but I think I’m progressively adjusting to this kind of work.

Hopefully, before I wear the lousy uniform, I’d get used to staying at the office until midnight.

Weekend Market

I’m remarkably curious about this wheat grass; I’ll be dragging my friends to this so called “weekend market.” Instead of asking them to go to our weekend synagogue, I suggested we head to Salcedo Community Market this coming Saturday. I dunno what’s happening to me. What I’m suggesting is completely different and it’s scaring me.

Well, I‘m not digging Topman’s clearance sale and I am not gonna go shopping! Let me rephrase that…I’m not gonna go shopping for clothes, but I know my pocket’s going to suffer from the emptiness, which will result from the oblivious buying of food.

Could this get any cheesier!?

I know, I know! It’s been a month and the only entry I could make is about the cheesiness people could get when they fall in love.

I spent the whole Saturday afternoon watching Ugly Betty and receiving texts from a lot of people. I thought watching Betty fall in love with Henry would be the mushiest I could get, but I was wrong. Remember this guy I was fantasizing myself with? (No, I wasn’t horny that time…I am virginal! Walang connection! Hahaha) He asked me to free my schedule yesterday since he wants to go somewhere. I was betting on Tagaytay, but because of an implausible reason, I turned him down. Was it because of Betty? Was it because of the text messages I received? No, it was because I’ve realized something.

Lemme give you the gist of our so called “love thingy.” Well, before I got acquainted with him he’s already involved in a love affair, but before I discover it myself, he intended to divulge everything to me. You want to know the reason? It’s because he doesn’t want to lose me (Yada yada yada). Is he nuts? The time I knew he’s in a relationship, he already lost me. Well, I guess not totally.

Anyhoo, the realization was undemanding so I shared it with him. After a year of being in the losing end, I texted him, “I want to be honest with you. Every time I think of us, he comes into the picture. I know I can’t have you and you can’t have me as well. It’s really depressing, but that’s the way it is”. Now tell me you know the meaning of EMO! Beat that!

After sending the text message, a coworker subsequently texted me and told me that he broke up with his girlfriend. Perfect timing! I was still experiencing cerebral drama, so I gave him some of my fab advices. One of which is the very unique line which is, “Try talking things out!” Another is, “It isn’t the end of the world yet. Bawal magsuicide!” See, I give good advices.

Luckily, Joe called and told me he’ll drop by. So when he came, I retired from the EMO mode and talked about Levi’s warehouse. I’m planning to go there this coming Saturday, but I’ve something in my schedule maybe some other time.

Ps. I love loving, I just don’t want to be cheesy!

Pps. Okay, I want to be cheesy. It's just not the right time!

What’s happening to me!?
I don’t want to blame my coworkers for my failure because they make me laugh from Mondays through Fridays. I love laughing and making fun of others (Ooops! It’s not meant that way. I mean...‘Yung COW wala nang ga-as!). Seriously, I can’t muddle up work with playground fun. I just can’t concentrate when Anina starts asking either Andrei or Bermase to take her pictures while Jack conveys the feeling of gliding from one building to the other. Add the shaggy dog story of James Christian V. Caraan and his anomalous attitude before a camera. Don’t get me wrong, I love these people! It’s just that I feel like taking my training for granted when I’m with these lovely people. I guess I have to amend my thought of combining work with fun.

Best Batch Ever!

Lemme check the last time I updated my blog…T’was the 10th of May.

Lots of things happened in a span of three weeks. I was able to a) have my haircut b) submit all the requirements my employer needs c) go to Bora to celebrate my brother's birthday d) rekindle my cheesiness and went straight to Tagaytay e) party hard with my beloved friends and f) watch my most awaited film, Sex and the City.

Are you one of us?
This is one of the taglines of the company that I’ve applied for. Fortunately, I was able to nail all the interviews and I’ve already signed the job offer.

Now, I am answering Globe Telecom’s tagline…Yes, I am!

I passed the initial exam and interview, I passed the technical exam and technical interview and I passed the final panel interview. I am now partly an employee of Globe Telecom, Inc. For me to be a bona fide employee of the said company, I should be able to pass my pre-employment medical exam and all the requirements they want me to submit including my SSS/E-1 form, TIN, certificate of employment from my past employer, NBI clearance, TOR, diploma, birth certificate, form 2316 and affidavit of disclaimer.

What I was able to accomplish for the past few days were:

*E-1 form
*NBI clearance
*Birth certificate

I’ve one week to finish and submit all the requirements. Hopefully, everything will be fine.

God is really good. Just pray and everything will be alright! ;)

IT Cadet it is!
I’ve never felt apprehensive days before an interview. However, since I feel like pressed for time even though I’ve no plausible reasons, I think I’m never getting rid of this anxiety until I finish the said interview.

Many things happened after my graduation. I’ll be posting a lot of entries once I nail this job interview. Please pray for me!
