my department

one of the most friendliest girl in my office's department accepted the offer of our company to be assign overseas. her name is Evelyn Tan. she's very nice, and very down to earth girl. i believe she's good at what she is presently doin right now. and I couldn't be more than happy for her!

although i'm sincerely happy that she's offered and accepted a new path in her working career, i can't help but feel sad that the day that she will leave us is inevitable. as i was telling my fellow co-department people, i strongly feel that the present combination of the people in the Purchasing department is really good and very productive. well, i'm included in that combination, of course! :) but this is not about me anymore, it's about the people working together in the Purchasing Department.

you wanna know why i feel that the present people in our department is good? that's because i feel that all of us are working together, finally! though each of us have different items/categories to focus to, we do make kwento to each other about the important things to take note with, and our different problems and interactions with suppliers.

yes, i feel good with these people with me right now! i feel happy and excited for Evelyn, and whoever is next to be assign overseas, but still, i can't help but feel lonely and sad. sooner than we thought, new faces will be arriving at the Purchasing department, just like what Kim and i went through last July 4, 2005. but now that we're like 3 months or so being together, i feel very happy and comfortable with the people i'm with: Kuya Monty, Johan, Ai Ai, Wena, Stephen, Evelyn, Kim and of course, Sir Philip. i think like me, for example, finally learned the ways and likes of Sir Philip, it makes me wonder and ask myself if i really wanna be assign overseas if ever that opportunity finally knocks at my doorstep? or can i finally be happy and contented working for a nice and great boss like Sir Philip?

i have a lot of questions bugging me right now. i guess i just don't feel comfortable knowing that tomorrow, new face or faces will be coming in to my comfort zone. as much as i want to think that maybe a new girl will be assign to learn the things that i've been doin for the past 3 months, i'm asking myself if i'm willing to let go of my industrial things, and hopefully be ask to learn the other things in the Purchasing department?

i don't think that i feel insecure about the work i'm doing. i know for a fact that i'm doing pretty good. but still, i'm not willing to let go just yet...

October na!

it's been awhile since i went out and get together with my "single" friends. yeah.. at our age, we're still single, does that mean we have to settle? hahaha! ewan, ang labo. the last time i saw Sweeney was last year August! can you believe that? and we call ourselves "barkada"? hahaha! Girlie naman, i think last month? as for Aimee, mga last month din! anong klaseng friend na ba ako? hahahaha!

but i have the best excuse of all.. i'm working now, and i'm tired! hahaha!

i know i posted in my blog that i'm giving myself a September deadline for the submission of my paper for OCE. a month's time has already passed, and i still haven't done a tiny bit of improvement to my paper.. i'm so deadz.... right?

so, i hope that i will be able to do this before my 28th birthday... Gawd, i don't feel 28! hahaha! still, i have to start doin something, or else, time will pass me by again..

things finally hit me that though i'm improving in my work, i haven't done a bit to finally finish my studies... i have to finish it na muna... i just hope that i can finally put a lot of effort of doin it.

as of now, i have to admit i'm enjoying... i like to call out to people i'm familiar with.. i love to give a compliment or two.. say thank you, you're welcome.. and i just like to laugh.. smile and kid with people at the office... giving out punch lines and hirits.. basta to joke around and have fun while working... well, i believe i'm much more effective in my job with this new outlook of mine. and i love it that people are smiling and laughing back with me... wahhh.. ang babaw ko nga! :)

i have a new thing to learn this month.... Comics... thanks to my young at heart officemates, i hope that i will finally able to understand why a lot of young poeple and grown ups as well, are so hooked with collecting and reading comics, buying these expensive thin pages from Filbars. yun nga lang, i guess i have to experience and learn what it is to enjoy myself.. hehe!

learned something today:
DC - Superman and Batman
Marvel - Spiderman, X-men, Hulk (daw, pero ndi ko pa sure..)

ahh ewan! Ü

from Trina's blog

the quizzes that Trina took and posted in her blog caught my eye to try them for myself. so far, i've been trying almost all the quizzes that the site's links are showing. I'm only gonna post this one.. hehe :)

Your Birthdate: November 22
While sometimes employing unorthodox approaches, you are capable of handling large scale undertakings.You assume great responsibility and work long and hard toward completion. Often, especially in the early part of life, there is rigidity or stubbornness, and a tendency to repress feelings.
Idealistic, you work for the greater good with a good deal of inner strength and charisma. An extremely capable organizer, but likely to paint with broad strokes rather than detail. You are very aware and intuitive. You are subject to a good deal of nervous tension.
