Last Call For That Overtime

January 28, 2015

Tonight’s going to be the official end to our language enhancement class, which means we won’t be going to the office early next week, thankfully.  However, the evaluation will happen on Friday, and a random call from the Thursday-Friday period from folk already talking calls will be used to judge whether or not we passed the course.

Of course, that’s not my only concern.  Fact is, we’re going to have a rehearsal for our performance at the end of the month after tonight’s shift (meaning Thursday morning)… and I’m going on barely four hours sleep here.  Wonderful.  While I only have a few lines for the production number, I can imagine it won’t be pretty especially since I’ll be grumpy while doing it.  Buh.  Que sera, sera, I suppose.

Still no word in on my backpay, and the person I talked to earlier asked me to call again tomorrow… Except they only disburse on Thursdays, which means that the phone lines will be busy due to all the others calling in to follow up too.


Not Without Instances Of Panic

January 27, 2015

It was the continuation of the usual CompAss last night, except with the added wrinkle that Kooh, who was our proxy-coach and source of processing knowledge, had to be sent home by the clinic due to having a bad case of Sore Eyes (which I might add can be contagious).  This more or less takes her out of the picture for the rest of the week, which meant that the bulk of our cases processing fell to our team lead, and you can imagine how that worked out — the cases got ridiculously piled up.  And this is going to happen constantly until Kooh comes back.  Oi.

The impromptu Oscar-style monologue I cooked up seemed to be accepted by the team, as far as it goes for performances.  I apparently have to still pare it down, though given how it’s already barely a minute and a half long when paced properly, I’m not sure how unless I rewrite it.  Hmm.  Well there’s still time until Friday morning’s practice so…

Was able to recover somewhat from last night’s long shift, though this meant that I literally only woke up around six or so in the evening.  Hopefully it’s enough to get me through tonight’s shift though.

Abbreviated Starts, Again

January 26, 2015

Here I am, awake early again at the start of the week because of the pre-shift training… though I would have gotten up early regardless, as we had to drop by the market again to restock the fridge with the food I needed for my viands for the next week.  Just kind of wish that my father had a wider selection, but I can’t complain, as I can’t wake up early enough to prepare for myself anyway.

Gradually getting closer to our meet and greet as well, which is going to be held this Saturday.  Got the speech to go with the presentation by the Mutual Funds team ready, so I just hope that the coordinator will like it.

Anime Watched (rewatch in some cases): Maria the Virgin Witch, Koufuku Graffiti, Dog Days S3, DRRR S2.

Taking Some Of That Pressure Off

January 25, 2015

I can’t say that I was able to use today to the fullest, because in all honesty I slept through most of it.  This was partly due to the fact that I woke up ridiculously early — around one-thirty in the morning — and then proceeded to play through the World of Warships special access weekend.  

The end result of all this being me nodding off literally barely ten in the morning.  As in I couldn’t even force myself to stay up.  So, bed it was.

At the very least, I’ve been re-energized somewhat, and spent the time after I woke up to catch up in some anime.  Though in all likelihood I’ll be playing Warships again before bed, as the access is limited after all.

Anime Watched: Aldnoah Zero, Idolmaster ~ Cinderella Girls, Log Horizon S2, Dog Days S3, Rolling Girls, Durararara S2, Koufuku Graffiti.

Taking Advantage Of The Cool While It’s Here

January 24, 2015

And by that, I mean the cool weather, which makes for good napping, so that’s exactly what I did.  After I got back from work, I watched the baby for a bit, as his minder was doing the laundry, my sister was asleep, and my father was apparently out to the market.  As soon as my dad came back however (meaning that there was someone else to watch the baby) it was off to bed.  

Given how nice and cool it was, needless to say I was out like a light.  Didn’t wake up until late afternoon, and I was quite happy for it.

That said, I am kind of bummed that the update for the World of Warships client (which I got for the open beta weekend) still hasn’t finished downloading.  You’d think that seven hours would be enough, but nope!

The Night Still Felt Long

January 23, 2015

Last night’s shift was somewhat better.  Took comparatively less calls — twenty compared to twenty-five from the day before — but the shift still felt ridiculously long.  Makes me curious now at the aggregate stats though, which I suppose we’ll get later on during tonight’s shift.

The breaks really need getting used to though.  Thirty minute lunch breaks are just waaaay too short and way too abrupt.

Really looking forward to the weekend.  If anything else, it gives me a good excuse to just lay around and not talk.  Ugh.

Objects Of Interest

January 22, 2015

Yesterday’s day at work didn’t start really well.  I was greeted by the news that the MRT service had stopped temporarily due to an accident that had happened in the Ayala area (a bus caught fire, and some debris from it fell unto the tracks), which meant that I had to head to the EDSA area earlier than usual.  What I found there was expected, but no less disheartening — crowds of people trying to catch bus rides, but no buses stopping to take in passengers as they were all full too.

Given the choice, I elected to just walk to the office… And then, by the time I got to the Magallanes area, I saw an MRT train rolling down the tracks towards Taft station.  It looks like the line returned to operation after all.

Drat.  As I was already too far into my walk, and I was already way too familiar with the long lines at the Magallanes MRT station at that hour, I just opted to see it through to the end.

I arrived at the Glorietta area at around seven-forty seven, feeling sore all over.  Definitely out of shape there.

The pre-shift language enhancement class had the tongue-twister competition as promised, so it wasn’t so bad.  The actual work-shift that followed however wasn’t as enjoyable.  Despite my after-day records showing that I only took in twenty-four calls for the whole day, it sure felt that I took in more, especially the screw-ups that I was guilty of doing.  Speaking of which, one merited that I actually call in to a specific coach in the US, after a warm transfer that got turned into a cold one because I wasn’t paying as much attention as I should… Ugh.

Was just so glad to have the shift over with.  I just hope that I could do better for tonight’s shift
