Down To The Dregs

It's been a while since I've been this thankful for payday. It means that I'll be having money again, providing of course that payroll comes through... Just having about three hundred pesos in the bank, and with no way to withdraw it, isn't nice at all. You bet that I'll hide most of it away … Continue reading Down To The Dregs

Pain In The You-Know-Where

For those curious about what I was up to during the past few days, I've been stuck at home on bedrest. Why? Well the lower back pain I've experienced some two years ago came back, and with a vengeance.  I got rushed to the hospital from work, and had to spend most of the day … Continue reading Pain In The You-Know-Where

Cutting It Close

Despite myself, I woke up rather later rhis morning. It's my fault, really; I took way more time than I should on that online module (which was about the types of negotiation), but on the bright side I only have one more left to complete to be eligible for the bootcamp. That said, this led … Continue reading Cutting It Close

Half In Half Out

So it was payday yesterday, though I wasn't really feeling my salary. This was because I immediately felt the specter of my holiday-season bloated credit card bill at the back of my mind.  So the moment it hit my savings, I divided the total amount of money I had in two, and allocated a half … Continue reading Half In Half Out

A Look Back At All Of It

The last day of the year was a lot busier than expected. We were told that there wouldn't be too many callers today, and yet it felt like any other work day. Heck by comparison, I had fewer calls yesterday. I guess a lot of people wanted to get things done before the New Year. I … Continue reading A Look Back At All Of It

It’s Been A Heck Of A Holiday

It's been a while, hasn't it? Myssa's work schedule has really played havoc on her journal entry schedule, so for the time being I'm going to share what I've been up to, at least over the last few weeks. Hmm, where to begin? Well, I've finally gotten myself a girlfriend. Over the four-odd days leading … Continue reading It’s Been A Heck Of A Holiday

Yeah, It’s Been A Handful

We got our 13th month pay on schedule on the 14th. And there was no delay-until-the-afternoon thing, as we feared, and instead the money appeared in our payroll accounts during the shift itself. Let me tell you, I went straight to the bank after the shift... But only after a detour to Petrol jeans to buy the … Continue reading Yeah, It’s Been A Handful

Yet Another Preparation For The Next Phase

It was payday yesterday, but I couldn't really feel that happy about it. Well, there was the fact that I felt that I was being taxed really REALLY high, but other thoughts were occupying my mind, and I ended up not actually withdrawing anything that day. And it's just as well, as my savings bank … Continue reading Yet Another Preparation For The Next Phase

Just That Little Reprieve

There's a bit of rain today, which started the moment I got on the MRT as I headed home, and never really stopped even when I went to bed. On one hand, it made the temperature drop a bit, but that isn't much when the afternoon heat was not-so-easily dissipated.  Oh well, it made sleeping … Continue reading Just That Little Reprieve

End Of The Month Reflections

It's Alls Hallow's Eve right now in many places of the world, but for yours truly I was more worried about whether or not there would be any Japanese class scheduled today. I actually waited past noontime, as that's usually when the text from the Berlitz tutors show up, to inform us whether or not … Continue reading End Of The Month Reflections
