I came, I saw, I blogged.

I was out Thursday and Friday to study for the big finals last Saturday. Passed the subject, not with flying colors, but at least I passed. I kept having dreams of failing the subject and plotting revenge on the teacher. Grade is below average but it beats having to repeat the 3 units. -------------------- FHM came out with it's September issue. There are 4 covers available for the said issue, and my DA POGI got the one with Jen Rosendhal. When asked why, he said that he liked her because she had some foreign blood in her. Elizabeth Ramsey had foreign blood but I don't see him buying a magazine with her in the cover?! Heh. I wanted to get Kristine Jaca. -------------------- On a lighter side, I recognized at least 2 people from the pictures of the FHM party. Both are fairly senior managers here at work. Blackmail material. ;)

I have a feeling that I'll soon be out of a job. I fear that I am no longer of any use to my team, and thus I might need to move on. The people that I have taught now know more than I do, and there are some more people wanting to know a little more about what I do. I now have to better assess the things that I need to do. I have been wanting to move on to the next big project and leave all of my support jobs behind. I don't know what I really need. All I know is that it makes me real sad that I am no longer needed. Or that people think they don't need me. You started these feelings in me and I hate it that you made me so insecure.

I don't know if I'm reading too much into this, but did they attend the same wedding? Have I been watching too many detective shows or have I been too much involved in other people's lives? Hmmmm.....

It's Monday and I am one unhappy camper. Wasn't able to catch any sleep on the bus. The lady, who I was seated next to and is barely 5 feet tall, snores like an ape. Added to the fact that I had difficulty squeezing in my 5'5'' frame in a very cramped space because the person in front of me seems to have forgotten that I was seated behind her. She reclined her seat fully, even if I asked for some space. Some people talaga oo... I hope something good happens today. Ang aga aga, hindi na ako makangiti. UPDATE: I was going along my sulky way when I passed by AnP's blog. She's posted pictures of her son who is such a cutie, by the way. Made me smile. :) UPDATE 2: Talagang love niya ako. Stock prices are going up. Made me smile again. Babawiin ko na yung sinabi ko na hindi ako makangiti. Nakangiti na ako e. ;)

I have zero motivation for finishing my school project. As none, zilch, nada. I've been trying to do the project but I can't seem to put my mind into it. Been watching a couple of DVDs and sending emails to the people in the US. Been online for almost 3 hours now, answering emails, reading some blogs, but not really searching for answers to the project. And sometimes, they say, motivation is not really needed. It's either you want to do something or you don't. In my case, the don't is winning.

My inaanak will be turning 1 soon. All she wants for her birthday is her two front teeth. :D

I'm out 12K. I bought a 2 door aparador and a 4 drawer chest for the room. I also bought a lounge camp chair for my Dad and 2 ottomans for my mom. My credit card burned last night. Earliest delivery date is on Monday. Hay! I'll have to wait till then just so I can start fixing the room. I'm sleepy. and I'm broke.

Today, I love my job. Was able to create a first draft forecast for the whole of next year of both budget and projects. Pretty cool. Of course this is just first draft but I did it all by myself! :) Things are pretty quiet today. I was a bit of a biatch at lunch. See, someone took a chair from the table I was sitting in. I called out excuse me 3 times and the guy had the gall to ignore me. Then I just said, "Lech, deadma". Suddenly, the guy returned the seat. I don't know if it's because of my comment or maybe by divine intervention his hearing has gone back. I'll be shopping for an aparador this evening. I found a really nice one last Sunday, unfortunately, they don't have it in stock anymore. I hope I can get one real soon, my clothes are all over the house. My pants are in my Yaya's room, my blouses in my brother's room and some of my other stuff in my parents' room. I'm thinking, a 3 door aparador and a chest of drawers. How do you call aparador in English? I could only come up with closet. Bleh!

Lunch was a ham and cheese sandwich and iced tea. Sat here in my desk eating while trying to debug an issue that has been bugging me for the past couple of days. I am able to blog now because a solution and some time has finally been presented themselves to my unimaginative mind. WIll still work on a couple of big ticket projects for the next few weeks. Wasn't even able to study well for the exam later. Scary.

Tell me something I don't know. My company is investing in me to take some personality exams to better prepare me in my stressful times. So far, I have found out that I have a conscientious personality. Today, I found out that in as much as my career goes, I'd rather have stability than the natural high. Most of my friends thought that I would be in the "Getting High" section. I am an adventure seeker when it comes to work, volunteering or doing projects that people normally do not want to take. O well, seems the things that I want are different with what people perceive me of. Originally people thought I was a dominant personality. Maybe they are right since the results of today's test showed me that I'd do anything to get ahead in my career. My company is paying hundreds of dollars just to psychoanalyze me. Heh.

Weird. I was thinking about writing my friend D a letter here and then I saw Rosa's blog and she wrote several letters to several people. I don't know if it's because gorgeous people have knack of thinking alike or if it's just on crazy concidence that we thought of the same thing. I'll pass on the letter today. Don't want to be too spooky. :p ------------------- Paper is due tomorrow and I'm only 3/4's of the way done. Had a meeting that lasted till 10 (it started at 7). Been smiling even with all the pressure. Now that is a good thing. Maybe because I received an email from D earlier telling me that she believes in my potential. I was just telling her about my current dillemma at work and of course she has provided me with some useful insights. I just love her. She is a very senior manager here at work and she calls me her little sister. I call her my pseudomentor. It's people like her that make me thankful that I work in such a diverse environment. Plus she promised to bring me pasalubong when she comes back from her trip. O e di mas masaya. :)

This is how babaw I can get. My department purchased several pieces of USB 3 button optical mouse. And I was very happy because I get to use a scrollpoint mouse. The scroll point lights up when connected to the USB port. That is how babaw I can get.

Got a copy of the first season DVDs of CSI. Kahit napanood na, maganda pa rin. :) Now, I'm really sleepy because I slept really late. I have a meeting that would last the whole morning and I would need a very tall cup of coffee just to keep awake for that meeting! I love this show. It makes geeks really cool. Imagine, crimes can be solved even with just a piece of hair or a voice heard in the background. As in sobra. I'm a very big fan of Crime Night in Discovery Channel and also of the Autopsy Series in HBO. Too bad we don't have a TV in our room, di ko na tuloy nasusundan. I would love to be a forensic scientist kaso lang I can't imagine looking at dead bodies and being able to sleep at night. Sixth Sense kept me awake for a couple of nights, e papano pa kaya kung for real na? I'm excited to go home later. I'm gonna watch one more episode. :)

Baby Fever. That's probably what I have. I attended my inaanak's first birthday party yesterday. Of course, as with all birthday parties, one would expect children all around. R's baby was so cute wearing the pink dress I gave her for Christmas. And B's baby was equally cute wearing khakis and a red polo. Made me want to have a baby right away. Of course my DA POGI was there to calm me down. ;) Next week, I'll be going to T's daughter's first birthday and then to R's baby's first birthday the week after. Tomorrow, I'll try to post a picture of R's baby. Para makita niyo na cute talaga. :) Kakapressure a! wala nang batang panget ngayon. :D

Rosa's making Christmas lists. Since my birthday is coming up earlier than christmas, better to make a birthday list right? 1. A sony clie sj33. It's not just an organizer, it's an MP3 player. 2. A Canon 10D camera. I'm not replacing my Nikon 4300. I just want to reinforce my photography. ;) 3. A Sony Ericsson T610. To replace my trusty 8250. 4. Health, wealth and happiness for DA POGI. (It's his birthday too!) 5. World peace. Number 5 is negotiable. ;)

Found this news link from Pen. Katawa lang. Si Reagan ang nagpauso nito e. How else would Pinoys know that being a movie star would get you far in politics? Tapos syempre, ginaya na ni Erap. Tapos si FPJ, e idol ni Ah-nold si FPJ. So now, Ah-nold is running for governor of the state of California. ;) Naniniwala na talaga ako na bilog lang ang mundo. hehehe... :D

W is evil. As in evil talaga. I would think that nagbago na. Kaya lang hindi. Hindi nga sya nanghihingi ng feedback from me. Baka natatakot na sabihin ko na evil sya. Pati miron niya nahahawa na sa kanya. O well, kaya nga miron ang tawag e. Eto na naman ako nagiging reactive. Magagalit si BB nito sa akin e.

I've been a manang the last 3 days. Tuesday, I was sick, so I really didn't leave the house. But on Monday and yesterday, I went straight home right after work. I usually pass by Glorietta and just pass time. I don't like riding the MRT at rush hour. So I've been taking a cab home this week. Will write later. Headache is now bothering me. I've been too reactive to some of the issues here at the office that it's taking it's toll on me.

I've read earlier that JLo and Ben Affleck had split. Is it because Gigli bombed in the box office? I don't know if this is good news or bad news. All I know is it's news.

I was out sick yesterday. The flu almost caught me. My mom had it since Sunday, and I was a little feverish yesterday because of my itchy throat. Good thing my mom advised that I stay home. I'm feeling a little better now. Wasn't able to sleep the whole day though, my body's still on office work hours. I was awake at 4AM and slept again at 6AM. Woke up at 10AM and was awake till 10PM. I was watching Sharon Cuneta movies the whole day in PBO. One would wonder how I was able to get rid of my fever. I wonder that too. My DA POGI and I will hopefully be going out for dinner tonight. ;)

Me, pounding the keys, not really a bad sign. Doesn't mean I am angry at the keyboard or at any one else. It's just the way I type. I've never broken a keyboard, I promise. I take care of them well. When I'm mad, I vent it out on my mouse and not the keyboard. Don't ask what I do with the mouse. Was so scared that I won't be able to finish before the work day ends because of an issue, but then, miraculously, I finished it. Just had a call from the customer telling me that they finally saw the drasted menu button. I thought I was doomed to stay here until 6. DA POGI's schedule will begin to be in shifts again. It made me sad about that, since I have gotten comfortable with us seeing each other everyday when he finishes work at 5. Now, there's no guarantee that we'll see each other. His shift changes every two weeks, and since he's new to the job, he's going through the whole adjustment period. Just need to remind myself that I need to be the supportive girlfriend once in a while. :) Basta, when he becomes VP na, housewife na talaga ako. :p

Nag-anniversary pala ang blog ko, di ko man lang namalayan. I'm feeling a little sick today. My throat is itching like crazy! Might be because I was so tired from yesterday's Cavite trip. DA POGI's mom wanted to have lunch in Cavite with the girl that his brother is courting. Lunch turned into merienda, and we finally made it home around 9PM. Since it was a hot day, I felt awfully tired when I got home. I think I made it worse by taking a shower to take away the grime. Hay! wala pa naman akong sundo mamaya. :(
