this is it

my first day at work and it seems that i have data overload! This environment is different from what i am used to, but i have to make the most of the situation if i want to succeed right?

No more 2-3 hour lunches... no more waking up at 7am... no more constant snacking... and most of all No vacation leaves!!!

I do miss my officemates and the constant chatter they have, I even miss the times of doing nothing but playing yahoo games on line. But there comes to a point in someone's life that one has to get out of the comfort zone and experience something new. This is what i am doing.

I may delay some of my plans (travel and a long vacation in bora) for next year but then only Allah knows what is in store of all of us. I just hope and pray that this will be one memorable adventure.

getting ready

A week before my new adventure and I am almost set.

Bought some new outfits last saturday (shoes, skirts and all. after 6 years, ngayon n lang uli ako mag corporate outfit.) Ang sakit sa bulsa! Grabe hindi pa nga sumusweldo, gastos na. And to think I still have to buy an extra pair of black pumps, a "cute" black skirt, some slacks and a couple more blouses). Hay, give up na ako sa shopping.

Hmm, on second thought, I was able to get a good deal on shoes (nine west na 45% off) and some of blouses because it was the year-end sale in most shops. Makabalik nga this weekend kung sale pa. :)

Checked all my requirements. So far ok na, resignation letter na lang at ang clearance. Hopefully, I will be all set by Friday.

Note to self: Must not forget to submit the year-end productivity report to personnel.

On my last day at the office: My office mates are prompting me to treat them to a "despedida" on Friday. Merienda would be ok. I would surely miss my office mates, the afternoon snacks and all the chatter. I would also miss the "updates" on the latest soap on TV. hehehe

Insha Allah, I will be starting next week. Hay, time to get up real early this time -- malayo na kc. I would miss my 7am wake-up time. hehehe. Time to prepare "baon" para makatipid. Bwhahaha

I am excited and nervous at the same time. Syempre, I am getting out of my comfort zone. (But one has to in order to grow, right?) Hope everything will work out for me sa bago kong papasukan.

Time to draw up my new "financial" plan / budget for the year. Since mag iiba ang dynamics this year, last year's financial budget, just won't do. Just hope that I could still stick to my original plan of have "N" savings and stick to the budget once i get it done.

That's it. Mukhang all systems go na. Insha Allah, I will start on Monday. Wish me luck!

a new adventure

I never thought that I would be starting the new year with a new job. The week started out just like any week until that fateful call Wednesday night. The call had me in quite a spin that I only have yesterday to actually analyze the situation and take everything in.

After consulting with my family and computing expenses (savings, etc), I decided to accept the project offer and delay my some of my plans til the 4th Q of the year.

So in two weeks, I am off to a new adventure in my life. Good bye stress-free life! Good bye waking up late and numerous vacation leaves. Hello stress, traffic and no-work no-pay days! In two weeks, I will be venturing into the urban and corporate jungle.

be a csi

start the new year by playing detective / csi and putting your grey cells to the test with the Crimson Room and the Viridian Room.

find the clues hidden in the room(s) to escape / get out.

Have fun!
