One thing I look forward to when I travel in general is the room I'm going to sleep in. I may only be using it for roughly 10 hours a day at most but I have to sleep comfortably to be able to recharge for a long day ahead.
On my recent business trip to Tagaytay, I was suppose to stay at Taal Vista but, as you know, I had to leave and move to a different hotel later that day. But before the transfer, I was able to get the key card, see the room and spend some time there on my own.
Taal Vista is an English tudor mansion style hotel in Tagaytay with a really beautiful view overlooking Taal Lake. It's one ride from Robinsons Mall and right in front of the hotel is the Casino and McDonalds.
It wasn't a formal complaint though but it was the first news that reached me in the morning and honestly it was annoying.
The schedule was made three weeks ago and there were no complaints when I sent them home early and gave them a free day. No other remarks nor appeal to change it too then suddenly, someone stabbed me in the back.
That's additional 12 hours a week plus the fact that it's a new subject to me so I have to review for it. It's taking so much of my time than I expected. I just hope I'm not doing badly.
Sportsfest started today and I'm handling Arnis. I've been quite busy all week because we've been practicing and making costumes. We do have a budget to have it made but it's only for six "anyo" performers and we have nine.
The performance for anyo went smoothly. We were actually counting golds during the anyo performance yesterday. The only complaint I had was the sudden change in format for the full contact.
I get their point of wanting to secure the kids' safety and I've already agreed on changing the format. All I'm asking is to redo the draw lots but it was denied.
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.
