That First Weekend Solo

January 30, 2016

Thankfully, the work week ended without incident. While I did get two calls monitored, I did somewhat okay, but the takeaway from the review done by the Minneapolis coach was that I had to find a way of using shorter phrases when I talk to callers.

Not surprisingly, it was almost straight to bed once I got home. Slept through most of the daytime hours, and woke up sometime past seven. Heh.

That said, this means that I’m now trying to catch up on what other people should be doing during the day… And then there’s the laundry that needs to be done once it’s past midnight. Oi.

Slipped Past Without Incident

January 29, 2016

After the terrible shift the other day, I think I was able to address part of my screw-ups by being able to call the client I had processed the request for, in order to also update his mailing address. It’s a good thing he was amiable enough despite it being so early in the day. and things ended without incident.

As for the actual shift, I was given an hour’s worth of call review time right from the start of the evening. It’s a bit enlightening, to listen to my own calls like that for an extended period, particularly with regards to all those “habits” that are only noticeable once you listen in after the fact. In any case, it reveals a lot that needs to be improved upon, for sure.

It was payday today as well, and I wasn’t too surprised at how my salary for the cut-off was lower than usual. Still, money is money, and I was glad to be able to put into my savings account after I got home and waited for my bank to open for the day.

Anyway, I still have to watch myself tonight. It’s not over until the weekend dawns, as they say.

When It Rains, It Floods

January 28, 2016

I think many adults out there of working age have experienced “those” kind of days at the office, where nothing seemed to go right, and the situations just conspire to make sure that not only do you screw up multiple times, but each subsequent screw-up was just much worst than the last. Because that’s exactly just what I experienced last night.

They say trouble comes in threes, but I experienced four screw-ups during the shift, enough that I had to stay over more than an hour after everyone had already gone home just to try and fix one of them. It’s bad enough that I’d rather not discuss it, so it’s no surprise that, when I did get home, I jumped into bed. I didn’t even have the time to sulk, I was just so weary.

When I finally woke up this evening, I felt a whole lot better though. Okay, I screwed up. Can’t deny that. However, it’s better to see it as an opportunity to improve and shore up my weaknesses.  So yeah, not sulking, though this does mean I’m going to have to be extra-careful until the end of the week. Hmm.

It’s So Close, All Of A Sudden

January 27, 2016

And all of a sudden, it’s not only the midweek, it’s also just a few days more until payday (or at least I hope that it’s payday). The old bromide really applies in this case, especially in my situation. With no one else in the house, it’s pretty much straight to bed once I get changed.  

Though I have to say today was a little different in that regard, as I had to meet a friend at Baclaran church. After that business was done though, it was straight to the closest CDR-King outlet I could find to buy some DVDs, so I could burn some of the shows for this season. Said DVDs will serve as a “sampler” for another acquaintance (from work this time) to see if any show from this season’s anime line-up will be worth following.

I hadn’t done any DVD burning in a long time though. Go figure.

Alone It Seems,. Naturally

January 26, 2016

So I kind of woke up this afternoon, after dropping into bed from work, that Kuya Jun was gone, and this time around his bags and things were nowhere to be found as well. I figure that he finally received his departure order, and didn’t want to wake me to tell me that he was leaving.  This means that, from this point on, I have the house all to myself. Hmm.

This does means that I have to do all the house maintenance on my own from now on. Heh.

Last night’s shift wasn’t what I could call eventful, though since it was a Monday it had a comparatively higher number of calls than usual.  That said, I don’t think the queue overflowed during the entire evening. Go figure.

Oh, and tonight’s technically the second night that I’ve been trying to reduce my meat and carbohydrate intake and trying to supplement it with, what else, veggies. I’m experiencing first-hand though just how hard it is to eat just steamed vegetables. Pure vegetarians have all my respect for what might quite a mundane activity for them.

In any case, my primary concern for tonight will be, as usual, not being late, and not screwing up on my calls.

Weekend Literally Passed Me By

January 25, 2016

As ashamed as I have to admit, I nearly slept the weekend away, where I was mostly asleep during the daytime and active during the evenings instead. And while I had the house to myself this Sunday, as my father had left for Leyte while my tito Jun visited some relatives, I wasn’t actually able to make use of it. Blah.

In any case it’s a new week, meaning it’s back to work for yours truly. I think the only real difference is how I was able to go to the wet market to buy some vegetables and fruits (in the expectation that I’d have the house mostly to myself once Tito Jun also finally left for his seaman work).  Also yes this means I’ll be preparing my own food, fixing the house, and washing my own clothes on my own when that happens. So much work ahaha.

Didn’t even have time left for gaming, though I did manage to catch up somewhat on the anime I downloaded over the week.

Quite Restful, And I’m Not Complaining

January 23, 2016

I was very glad to come home earlier today. While the shift wasn’t physically taxing, I was mentally spent. I just wanted to drop into bed, close my eyes, and forget the waking world for a few hours. I kind of got my wish, but in return here I am, awake once again while everyone is resting… and I’ve suddenly got a lot of stuff to do too.

Well, there’s laundry of course (since the water pressure is always much better during evenings when no one else is using the pipes), but I also have to run off now and make sure to withdraw some money so tatay will have some spending money for when he goes home to Leyte tomorrow.  He’s gonna stay there until maybe the fourteenth of next month. He hasn’t been back there for a while though, so I suppose it’s just one nice thing I could grant him before his trip…

Yeah, that’s it.
