Just Another Job Interview

Once again, I tried my luck in a job interview. It’s the same company, the one that has rejected me for a few times already. But who am I to turn down an opportunity like that? Who knows what the future may bring this time around, right? And so armed with my ever-reliable interview attire (a skirtsuit), I showed up on the scheduled date and did my best.

If there’s one thing I like about interviews, it would be the flicker of hope it evokes. Once again, I had mixed feelings over it. I felt happy, giddy, excited, nervous, anxious, and afraid all at the same time. At one point, I even wanted to buy padron cigars to calm my nerves. I said to myself that I won’t expect anything, I’ll just see what happens, when it happens.

Is Graduate School for Me?

My plan to pursue higher studies has long been sitting in the corner. I have always wanted to get a graduate degree but my duties and responsibilities to my family have been my priority in the last seven years. I felt I was more needed there.

I have this strong assumption that next year is the perfect time for me to attend graduate school. I want an MBA or an MPA, whichever is best for me. I need a graduate degree to advance my career and inspire my siblings to do the same when the right time comes. I have already made a deal (more like a pact!) with my Superfriend that we’re enrolling next year. Just in case I back out, I told her to remind me of my promise and never let me get away with it.

Thank God It’s L!

It’s Friday once again and I so look forward to the coming weekend. So, what’s with the title? I must say it’s a big surprise. L stands for something that has arrived recently and will be in my possession come Sunday. I’m very excited about it!

My week has been good and balance, so far. I’m thankful I got to accomplish quite a lot, both in my day job and in my part-time job. I also got to witness some positive developments in my friends’ lives and I can only be happy for them. Like when I learned about a friend who is expecting her first baby, a friend who’s recently bought a brand new car and another friend who’s leaving abroad to seek for a greener pasture. Blessings in any form are always appreciated and welcomed with a grateful heart.

The Working Weekend That Passed

Last weekend was exhausting. Instead of taking some rest, I spent my Saturday and Sunday working in the office. This was all because of the 113th Philippine Independence Day. I was not complaining, though. It happens only once a year and for good reasons. We always want to remember the gallantry of our ancestors and thank them for the freedom we are enjoying today, don’t we?

I’m glad that our efforts paid off. The two events we organized for the historic 12th of June were a success. After all the hard work came the time to rest. As for me, I’m currently enjoying my two days off (today and tomorrow) and I’m making sure to spend them wisely. Actually, just this morning, I got my mom and myself visit a skin clinic to have our warts removed (will make a separate post for this soon). I also plan to update my blogs and do more freelance work (I just finished researching the benefits of malibu rehab treatment as compared to a local one a while ago) tomorrow.

New Hope, Less Expectation

I just received a good news in the form of an email. A new opportunity is presenting itself again. I dunno if I should be happy or sad, excited or nervous, about it. I’m having mixed feelings right now. But definitely, I’m giving it another shot. Who knows, it would be mine now. My words may be vague and puzzling to you, but the surprise I got this afternoon is worth a lot. Crazy as it sounds, but I think my future depends on it.

I failed in it the last time. How would I fare this time around? I have just been given new hope, but I have decided to expect less. I don’t want to imagine things. I want them to appear right before my eyes, to come my way. This is it. There’s no turning back. I wanna win this but surprisingly for me, I dunno how. Perhaps, I’ll just give it my best shot and see what happens from there…
