GelaMerce...whatever floats my boat
De La Salle University - Manila
Okaaaaay…I got my bottom-right wisdom tooth extracted yesterday and now I’m in bearable pain. Last night was just painful. I actually dreaded that moment when the anesthesia wore off and I could feel half of my face again. Good thing cold compress and Arcoxia helped or else, I would’ve cried myself to sleep last night. Too bad I wasn’t able to take home my wisdom tooth since the dentist smashed it to get it out - i know that sounded horrible but thanks to the anesthesia, I didn’t feel anything…just pressure :)
I’m wishing that the swelling would stop by Monday, as I do not want to go to work with a swollen face and I don’t want to file for another sick leave. Yeah, I’d rather work than hang out in the house and do nothing & not get paid for the day.
With the swelling & the pain, I kinda like the fact that I can’t really talk much. I take this as my silent days. LOL.
aaaaaaaaand it’s raining again. I hope y’all brought along with you your umbrellas :)
It’s that time of the year again when everyone’s saying “it’s the -ber months again”. A couple of things come to mind when September hits: (a) my birthday is coming up in a month or so, and (b) Christmas is right around the corner. I’m getting excited for Christmas since this will be the first time that I’ll be buying Christmas gifts for everyone using my OWN money! Wohooo!
YAY! I’ve been working for 6 months now! Wohooo! Glad to say that I’m still not bored with my work, and I’m still enjoying every bit of it. I count myself very lucky that I found this job. It might sound a bit boring for others, but for me, it’s actually fun and there are a lot of opportunities to learn - not just from the job itself, but also from the people around me. I’m also lucky with my officemates (who’re more like my close friends, not just co-workers). It’s awesome to actually think that we mesh together so well :)
I’m obsessing over the Samsung S3…I really really really (!!!) want one.
Today marks the end of the 4-day long weekend, thanks to the End of Ramadan & to the Death Anniversary of Ninoy Aquino.
Nothing great happened to me this long weekend. No getaways, no dates, no special thinggamajig. Instead, I opted to work from home. No, I am not a workaholic; I just want to do something productive and working from home made me productive (+ I’m getting paid to work over the holidays, so it’s a win-win situation actually).
I tried to recreate my cream puff. When I first made it, it was during my first class in Enderun. It turned out nicely and it tasted soooo nice. So today, I decided to recreate it and see if I can do it all over again. Well, it turned out nicely but I kinda discovered that if the puff pastry is left too long without putting the cream inside, it’ll collapse :| or maybe something went wrong with my dough…
But it still tasted niiiiiice :)
Last weekend, for some reason, I saw lots of people smoking that electric cigarette. It seems soooooo pretentious. Dunno, maybe they’re trying to quit or trying to ride with the fad…but dude, just get a stick and smoke your lungs out!
Today sucked…even if I had a burrito from Army Navy, today really sucked. I never expected that I’d be this much affected, but i am. I know expectations shouldn’t be a burden, but for me, it is. May be that’s why I stayed in a mediocre state…not that great, not that much of a loser. I guess somewhere inside of me knew that if I stand out and be “great”, somewhere down the road, I’ll disappoint everyone who had great expectations of me. I hate that they placed me on a pedestal and that they expect so much from me.
I know that this too shall pass, but for now, i feel so disappointed in myself.
This shouldn’t be as big of a deal as it seems but I just feel so disappointed.
Now I get how people say it’s easy to make mistakes in school, but at work, it isn’t that easy - not even close to it.
So…uhm…yeah…I know we’re on the mid-shift and we get the privilege to access Facebook and other social network sites, but don’t abuse it. Yes, I check my twitter, FB, and tumblr (hello :D) but I check these sites when I don’t have any work to do or when my bosses aren’t looking my way. I hope our boss sees the time you update your FB and gets aware that you’re not working 100% but I don’t wish nor hope that you get fired. I just wish that you put your head in the game like everyone else and actually care about getting regularized here in this company.
sayang yung skills mo, hindi mo nagagamit dahil sa pag-facebook mo gabi-gabi. Alam ko madali lang trabaho natin pero bakit ka pa rin nagkakamali? Masyado ka kasing tuliro eh.
So yeah…that’s me ranting :))
Wow! My supervisor mentioned to me/us that I/we’ve been in this company doing this work for 3 months already! WOW! It’s been that long?? LOL Guess the saying, “time flies fast when you’re having fun”, applies to me again (I think I said this when I posted about my NYC stay last November/December) and my sleep pattern has been haywired since then…Night shift has it’s ups and downs, at least night diff over-compensates my tax is a nice up =))
LOL I just noticed that I don’t have a don’t speak #69 :)) Sorry, dunno how to count :))
WOHOOO! I’M GONNA SEE BACKSTREET BOYS (and also NKTOB) THIS SUNDAY!! *fangirl mode on!*
So, I’ve been working for almost 2 months now and all I can say is, “F**K YOU GOVERNMENT! I’M PAYING TAXES NOW, BETTER CLEAN UP YOUR ACT!”
Yeah, been wanting to say that for years now LOL
One thing I’m glad about working is that I’m not yet stressed…2 months in and no stress, at all! Hope I can still say that when May/June comes in =))
Oh and I’m pretty lucky with my teammates…they’re fun to be with, especially since we’re all on the night shift (which I grew accustomed to)
So yeah, Happy Friday!
You know what I find absolutely funny? People posting and/or reblogging quotes with misspelled words in it. I’ve done that couple of times (the reblogging part) and I laughed at the mistake and took down the picture/post :))
The holidays are over, now I don’t have any reason to put off my job hunting pffft!
My days here in NYC are numbered :((
I’m loving this Thanksgiving week :) Everyone’s all excited for everything - the food, the parade, the gatherings, and of course, Black Friday :)
It’s nice to look at an age old-tradition from an outsider’s point of view.
I don’t want to think about leaving New York :(
I know that this is just a vacation stint but I’ve fallen in love with the city once more. I’ve been here since Oct 29 (yeah, I experienced the RARE Snow Storm!) and I’ll be going back to Manila on Dec 09.
I’ve been enjoying my stay here and every once in a while, enjoy being a full-on tourist. But most of the time, I pretend that I’ve been here since forever :))
This is one of those times that I won’t do my countdown :))
A huge thank you to all those who greeted me today/yesterday a happy birthday! Thank you again :D (and of course, thank you FB for posting my birthday haha LOLJK)
Had a nice simple birthday with my parents and yeah stuff like that makes me happy. I’m a no frills person :)
and of course I am very much excited to go back to NYC!! :) My flight’s tomorrow morning so yeah, little sleep for me tonight but I will definitely snooze my way from Tokyo to NY-JFK :) 14 hours of sleep!
YAY! See you guys when I get internet! :D
I’m quite enjoying tweaking my tumblr at this hour :)) Dunno why, but I do :))
