There was something I was able to confirm though. I'm not part of the office family. I thought after three years of working with the same people and doing my best with my job the way they look at me will change, but it didn't. They still treat me as an outcast and the things that happened throughout this week proved that they're all just waiting for something wrong to happen.
What I told her is that I want to explore different occupations and social experiments; like going to Batanes and pretending to be mute. ^_^ She didn't look amused and started lecturing.
I thought I was already ambitious then it got me thinking; Am I too simple minded for my age (late 20's)?
My old blogs have been messy and out of focused. I took blogging as a hobby and some of my posts were too personal making it difficult for me to brand my blog and myself as a blogger. I also find the platform kind of difficult for me to handle and edit since I’m not that techy. Lastly, I don’t have that much followers so I don’t think I’m wasting too much. I didn’t close it down but I’m no longer updating it.
I was also offered a permanent position and ranked ahead of the others a year after I got hired because nobody wanted to stay in that position but me. So I took the offer. Then the rise of the bitches began.
I see them everyday; Greet them everyday; Little did I know that they were already back stabbing me. The person I gifted a bag with was spreading rumors about me. One even called the head of the personnel to talk about how awful I am to work with. On top of that, my paper that would make me permanent went missing. I was lucky enough that I have two good friends who know me well and saved me.
2016 have been a productive year for me although, honestly, none on my list was actually accomplished in full. Yet it was filled with successful unplanned activities which made my year a lot more exciting. I've never let my instinct take the wheel before but things get crazy busy all at once, I didn't have much time to brood on anything that's been going on.
My year started with winning a beauty pageant. It wasn't like me to join contests like that but since it's part of my job to represent my department, I didn't have a choice but to follow my boss's orders. I ended up having fun trying on clothes and walking the ramp. The event also allowed me to conquer my fear of being judged on stage by the crowd.
Buying Something Useful
I've been working since 18 and the only useful thing I got myself is a small digital camera. I spend a lot on bags, foot wear, clothing, etc but not on expensive things that I actually need. One day, my gadgets just stopped working and for the first, I had to purchase a phone and a laptop. I needed it for work so I had to.
Internet connection is so slow which is suppose to help me focus on the seminar. We started out at Ateneo de Davao. We arrived just in time and no, I didn't get to take any photos. We went back to the inn to freshen up before going to SMX Convention for the technical sessions.
This year's ANC is in Davao. We arrived on the 23rd of November around 12:00nn via Cebu Pacific Air. The check in at NAIA Terminal 3 went smooth but our flight was delayed for almost an hour.
Anyway, after registration, we had lunch and rested for awhile before taking a short city tour around 4pm. I wasn't able to take so much picture since only a tourist spot took my interest.
If you live or been in the Philippines, you know well enough that it will be raining really hard this time of the year and workers and students will be waiting for admin leave and class cancellation announcements. There may not be a typhoon but low pressure area normally brings continuous rain. Include the problem with the city’s drainage system, there’s bound to be a flood and traffic will get worse. With that said, it follows that there won’t be much public transportation to accommodate commuters because some drivers would refuse to get their jeepneys out. If you’re thinking of getting a cab, I suggest you prepare to pay almost twice as much as the normal fare.
So last Friday, people have been commenting on the timing of the cancellation. A lot have said that the announcement is already too late because classes have ended (I guess the public is forgetting about us who have evening and weekend schedules) places are already flooded and everyone is already walking because of the lack of transportation (my house is 30 minutes away from the city considering normal conditions). Some are really angry because the water has almost reached their houses and blah, blah, blah. Some said that people are just overreacting because years ago, the quadrangle’s already flooded but still classes resumed. Some claimed they’re just worried about their child’s welfare which is understandable. Some are starting to become weather analysts, too.
They've all been screaming their hearts out "change is coming" since the election. They even made a bet if there's going to be a change at work too. I don't know about everyone else but I guess my work is about to. Yup, I "think" I'm up for a promotion by title but not by pay. I'm not sure if I like it considering all the things I've been planning ahead but I don't want to reject the idea since it's something that may help me improve.
I also don't think the others are gonna like it because I'm most certain they don't like me. They don't have to tell it to my face because they already told my boss without even talking to me. I remember when I was new, I was told by my boss that they got my back but in the end, it was just my boss and everyone else just turned their backs on me, even scolded me for asking. I don't know if it has changed but for now, I'm staying on the other side of that wall.
So here's the thing, I was busy doing office work when someone said they wanted to buy some street food across the street. One of us asked if they could buy some for her. Of course they'd say yes because she's their boss. So I asked if they could buy some for me too but they refused and just told me to go with them. But since I'm busy and I didn't want to leave the office, I told them "never mind" and then kept my money. Then suddenly, nobody wants to go and they're telling me to call some girl to buy it instead. I said I don't have her number. They keep on insisting and I'm like "do what you want."
