Going Positive

Posted by Alei at 2/18/2010 2 comments

Despite all the bottlenecks that I am starting to experience these days, I am going to be more optimistic especially on my career. That will be my New Year’s resolution, to be perfectly sanguine on every aspect off my life. It’s the safest New Year’s resolution isn’t? =)

Last Monday, I and Adrian went out for a job fair. I only applied for a single post at a hotel. 97% of all the other vacancies are call center jobs but, I did not pass on any of them. Just the thought of working at night makes me feel I can not make it even a week. Sustaining a night shift schedule can pose serious consequences to health. Out of my more than 15 pieces of my resume, only a single piece was deducted hehe. I passed few resumes online to compensate for my low application at the job fair. I have scheduled my next Monday for another job fair but I am still uncertain if I will pursue it due to the number of companies which is again, limited to the BPO industry.

I look forward to positive results of my applications. I am excited for my first job (if ever). And from now, I will live by the line, “Forget regret yesterday, live with hope today and the rest of the days.” Have a good day ahead!

What do I really want?

Posted by Alei at 2/11/2010 1 comments

Seconds turn into minutes, minutes to hours, hours to days, weeks to months and months to year to a year, the unending passage of time. As cliché as it is, time really flies. It was just like yesterday when I graduated from college. And yet, it is nearly two years since had my final march at my alma mater. The clock ticked faster than I imagined.

So, how am I now? I would always feel uncertain and frustrated when asked this question. When with my friends, they would talk about things regarding their work, their bosses, their unfinished tasks and so on. I would just remain silent, gawk at them and listen, wishing I could somehow relate and join in their subject. I still have no job (I mentioned this for the nth time here). I am not lazy. I believe I am not. It’s just that I’m waiting for an opportunity to come but have no idea when it would or would it even materialize. Silly? Yes. I came to realize that now. Everyday, when I woke up, I would just stare blankly on space thinking of what to do. Without nothing in mind, I would just spend time playing games on Facebook, wait for the afternoon to open my small computer shop and that's it. Everyday is monotonous. I have wasted almost two years for something I’m not sure if it’s for me.

I promised myself to remain positive this year. There is no point of ranting about the past. It is what is “was”. Now is my time to do something. What to I really want? I still want to pursue my always-postponed studies in Australia. I have devoted so much time on it. Why would I give up if I made it that far already? And besides, what if, all I need is just a single and final try to make it? I am always open to the odds. I am having a go on it for the third time. But, I will look for a temporary job again. I should not be hesitant now, it is for the better. At least, when everything else fails, (I hope not) I have plan B laid out. However, I should make sure that it would not be a hindrance as I process my papers again for my visa. It is only a matter of months from now. I will be turning 23 already. I would not allow to myself to turn a year older again without achieving anything. I’m bored, real bored of my everyday life. I need change. I should and would do something about it. I am not getting any younger.

Belle de Jour Planner

Posted by Alei at 2/06/2010 0 comments
I won! Well, not really in a contest. But, in a case between me and Adrian hehe. It’s between a BDJ Planner and a Starbucks Planner. After some days of contemplation, I finally came to realize that BDJ was worth my money. Without hesitation, I bought BDJ’s Power Planner last week at National Bookstore. (I know my post is delayed already =) ) It is also available at Powerbooks and Fullybooked. Though priced at 598 pesos, I felt not even a tinge of guilt as I spent my money away. I assume it will be something necessary for all my plans this year.

Here’s a peek to my new planner. Yey!

The Front Cover

I so love the discount coupons!

So what do you think? Is it a way better than Starbucks?
