poor August

I’d like to think that this is the hardest month I have encountered so far this year (when we talk of finances) but then,  the peak of my happy-day vacation after resigning from my first work.

Yep.

I’m on my 20s and this is the time that I’ve learned to “rock” and August rock me as hell!

Since mid June, I never found a job…
Come July and I was celebrating my _ _ birthday
By August, I was like…mmm…I can’t think of the right word but…

Let’s just put it this way, I’m currently working for the pre-production of 41st season of Women’s National Collegiate Athletic Association (WNCAA), and this was the time that I finally set foot in the historic place of Intramuros after so much admiration and wanting to be in that place.

That was 8 August! And finally, I was in Intramuros!

‘a new damn application letter’

It was July 6th when I came to work for the first time after college….(eventually I resigned)…and a year after, I am struggling to write a new damn application letter and constructing such holy crap resume!

goodbye…goodbye…goodbye…

I came yester-night with the previous (and very first) company I worked with to accomplish my clearance and the exit interview as well…and the hardest part was…surrendering those “things” that has become part of me during my almost a-year stay at the company…it’s like leaving and surrendering a big part of myself…and at those very moment, you cannot exactly tell how the whole situation felt like…or could it just be something in my thought though.

…it’s like completely saying goodbye to the company and the people I learned to love with…and one of the reasons why I came to work is those people whom I learned to appreciate and understand…and now that I am clearing things up, it feels (until now that I am writing this blog) like you will never ever be ‘able’ to come back or it seems that I should just inhibit myself of thinking and planning to come back and see my colleagues again.

The thought that I am officially surrendering the stuffs that the company had lend me all throughout my stay and that I am parting away from them, it feels like it would take time to accept the whole situation…and as the saying goes, the truth is rarely pure, and never simple.

100 years….the Centennial celebration begins today….Animo!

100 years…..they just started the Centennial countdown today…..Animo!

‘100 years of Lasallian presence in the Philippines’

….first WEEK/WEAK of MAY/…

Tuesday, 04 May – purchased 1202

Wednesday, 05 May – opened S/A

Thursday, 06 May – submitted my very first write-up at writers.ph

– the whole day, I was thinking how will I approach my immediate supervisor concerning my plans to file a resignation the earliest time possible. And just the thought of it made me more stressful at work and with my colleagues.
It seemed that I could not find a good turn to personally talked to her since she was then pre-occupied with paperworks and with her personal stuffs.
…planning was very difficult…and so until the end of the day


Friday, 07 May – It was morning, shortly after 5:00 when our AVP announced that our supervisor will be resigning, effective 15 May but her last day of service will be on the 14th. Upon hearing those information, I was like ‘anu daw?’….and to may dismay, all I can think of was ‘sh*t! That was totally unfair!
UNFAIR!
UNFAIR!
UNFAIR!

He said that there will be an informal turnover to a new Team Leader later during that day and all of our files and downloads will be forwarded to the new manager.

What made it more disappointing is, when we’re done with the AVP, she came in telling some sort of stupid revelation that there’s actually one colleague who already knew her  plan of transferring to another new company. She made her application last February and just recently received a confirmation within that week that she will be officially starting her ‘new career’ with the new company on the 17th.
And what the heck! I was keep on thinking how many months did our fellow teammate knew her plans of exiting the company – in between the months of February and May, for how long did she knew it?
Well, i feel like she just made us stupid for doing that ploy and one of my teammate sarcastically and jokingly asked, ‘Boss, ba’t s’ya lang? Hindi mo ba kami agent?’

Friday afternoon, I came in to my Alma Mater and found out this information: Vicissitude 2009 was released on 23 April 2010 – exactly a year and a month after our memorable Commencement.

***I met Lenny, one of my high school classmate in sophomore – remember year 2003 when I visited her every night just to have some sensible and non-sensible conversation.

NOW I HAVE MY YEARBOOK…AND IT MADE MY DAY!

***I came in for work at 7:57 in the evening when in fact, we’ll be starting our work at 8:00


Saturday, 08 May
– I was late AGAIN! And now I found out that I had a reputation for ALWAYS BEING LATE!

And now, she (new supervisor) is starting to be a “hassle” in my life! (literally)

Sunday, 09 May – MOTHER’S DAY

I decided to meet my former classmate in high school who was just having a lavish vacation in Manila for we haven’t had any communication for 2 years or so, together with another classmate whom I haven’t seen for more than a year.

And that was a whole lot of fun!

FELT LIKE WE’RE IN HIGH SCHOOL AGAIN!

It’s been more than a year since I wrote a blog entry for February 2009 (if I’m not mistaken), pointing out details and a little argument whether the automated election will be a reality in 2010 – which is evidently today.

Well, see my archive and look for its tags – I will always remember how I passionately put in words like PCOS in my entry when in fact, I do not have the complete idea how that system works.

Another thing is, I created 3 blog entries on national, political or any other issues that interest me as s partial fulfillment in the subject Computer Journalism.
