Not That Much Of A Surprise

April 12, 2017

It was really busy yesterday to say the least. A lot of calls, likely from customers wanting things to be done before the Holy Week hits its stride. It was a stroke of luck that I was scheduled forty-five minutes worth of training time yesterday, as I was able to use it to catch my breath. It also segued into my last break too.

Didn’t go home early yesterday. I had to swing around to Quezon City and drop by an acquaintance at the Heart Center. After catching up on old times I finally got home during the late afternoon. Let’s just say that neither my sister nor my dad were thrilled about that slight detour.


Critical Work Days

April 11, 2017

It’s been quite a bit since I last made an entry, and let’s just say that things were a lot more busier than usual. That, and those physical pains… Let’s just say that I’m happy I’m not walking with a limp, on either of my feet.

In any case it’s a new week, and as intimated by the title of this entry, the next few days are considered critical work days by the company. Which means absences are a no-no.

Oh and I didn’t have any Japanese class earlier, so I was able to use most of the day to rest and prepare for the upcoming shift.

Nope, Not A Lot Either

June 4, 2016

I hate to admit it, but it was yet another lethargic Saturday today. Not really much to share, and yet again, I pathetically spent most of the day in my room… I could barely keep awake during the day, really.

And here I am, wide awake close to midnight again. Wonderful. Oh well, I have to do the laundry anyway, but this kind of schedule disruption… It can’t really continue, if I want to put a dent on that anime backlog, ugh.

A Grinding Lot Of Nothing

June 3, 2016

I wish I could share much about my day today, but honestly a good chunk of it was spent in bed. It was a strange feeling; there was definitely energy there, and I was actually able to get up to have lunch with the rest of my family, but afterward it was just difficult to stay awake. Even watching documentaries on Youtube would inevitably lull me to sleep, which is kind of pathetic, especially when one remembers how I love those to death.

And I didn’t even get to watch any anime. Tsk.

Yet here I am, close to midnight and still awake. Rather than a lack of impetus, I think it’s more that my body’s internal clock has slowly shifted toward a more nocturnal schedule again. Hmm.

Little Points Of Embarrassment

June 2, 2016

I’ll admit right now, that I did absolutely nothing of note during the day. I had planned to go to the wet market during the morning, but since I didn’t get up early, one can see how that didn’t exactly pan out.

Then sometime earlier tonight, I received a text message from my sister that, rather than on Saturday, they were coming home after midnight. Worried that I hadn’t prepare anything, I went out to withdraw some money… Then it started to rain, hard. That was bad enough, but oh no, I also ended up locking myself out. Even when technically the doorknob wasn’t locked at all, but it simply wouldn’t budge whenever I tried to turn it.

Now this all culminated in me asking some help in borrowing a ladder, get a neighbor to brace said ladder, while I opened up the window of my sister’s room on the second floor, climb in there, and go downstairs to open the door from the inside. Thankfully the rain had weakened by that point, but it was still embarrassing.

Except the door wouldn’t open from the inside either. So we ended up having to remove the doorknob, lock and all, from the big wooded door. Sigh. I imagine that my father wouldn’t be too happy with that.

In any case, I’m hoping to do some shopping done tomorrow morning, if only to buy vegetables.

Good News, And Things That Make Me Go “Ick!”

May 31, 2016

I woke up early, but it turned out for naught, because the agency I went and visited at Cubao didn’t have any good prospects to offer. On the other hand, while I was on the MRT on the way home, the rep from that Aussie company I applied at a week ago finally contacted me, and informed me that, yes, they would like me to join the company, though the payment package was still being worked on. Hmm.

Now that would have been a great end to my morning, but unfortunately once I got back home I found that a mouse had decided to up and die in the middle of the kitchen. Ick. So I ended up spending most of the day trying to not look at it, while I went about my business downstairs. Might have to ask someone to sweep it up tomorrow though…

That aside, pretty much ramping down on the Kantai Collection event. Man, that ate up a month of my life, didn’t it?

Ooyashio, obviously.

Ooyashio, obviously.

Managed to farm Ooyashio, but Harukaze is a lost cause for now, as my Fuel finally bottomed out at zero, the first time in a while that happened. Hmm.

Yeeeah, zero Fuel.

Yeeeah, zero Fuel.

Now to recoup resources, and finally, FINALLY get back to watching my anime backlog.

I’ll Be Glad When It’s Done

May 30, 2016

It’s hard to think about something to write about, when most of my free time’s been taken up by, you guessed it, the Kantai Collection event. It’s gotten to the point that I haven’t been able to properly watch any anime, so one can see that I’ll really be glad when it finally ends on the first of June.

Until then though, I’m kind of doing some last-minute stockpiling so I could try and farm one of the new trophy destroyers (Ooyashio in this case) while I can, as she has a much higher chance of drop right now, whereas if she becomes available in the future again, it’ll be at a much decreased drop rate… Anyway we’ll just have to see how that goes.

My sister, her son, and my father, all went back to Quezon City again today, but not without leaving behind a hundred-dollar bill for me to use as I please as “allowance”. This is probably in response to the fact that I won’t get anymore pay from Sykes, as my thirty-business day leave credits had finally run out, reflected in the fact that I only got two thousand and eight hundred or so pesos during this payday. Ouch.

In any case, this means that I’ll really have to look for new work soon. Which only increases in importance with all those payments coming up…

So yeah, I better see about those job interviews lined up for me in the next few days, and see if any of them pique my interest enough, seeing as that Australian company still hadn’t gotten back to me about whether or not I was worth a slot in their company (which is annoying, as that looked like a really good deal, and they seemed to like me during that interview)… Maybe then I can officially hand in my resignation letter to the Sykes HR. Hmm.
