Babbling About Work on a Friday Morning

I have been given this Certificate of Recognition (daw) at work. It is some form of “thank you” from American Express because of some thingy they had agents do last Christmas peak. Our work load became heavier and what do we get? This piece of paper signed by two people (client) who “sincerely appreciated” what we did. Hahaha. I dun think its AMEX concern though. It’d with eTel. AMEX closes down one division in the states and loads all the work her in Manila (and I think the company gets something out of this) and passes the entire task to agents (whose hopes for promotion will get slimmer due to new standards and stats to meet – like me).

I am just mad because I am soon to be trained for yet another two splits. This will make my targets way impossible to reach and thus goodbye to promotion. Believe it or not, I am still at level 1 but I have been with the company for 18 months. What am I STILL doing here anyway?

On a lighter note, I decided to post some pics from our team GA last December 2005. These are my officemates and close friends as well.

Rheya, Aphol, Mois and Joppee.

EP stands for expresspay. It is a little keyfob (or a keychain) that can be linked to an American Express, Visa or MasterCard credit cards. I have one myself. But it’s just for display. It doesn’t work. I don’t event own any credit card much more afford to own an AMEX card. Duh?! It’s attached to my ID tag. Hahaha… Only the best (?) agents are trained for this product (and this is according to our trainee when I asked why I was included). Like I believe it! Duh!?

Anyway, we had dinner first at Super Bowl Eastwood afterwhich we went singing in this videoke bar in Acropolis (forgot the name.) And guess what? We spent almost 10,000 bucks for the night. Beers were overflowing and tequilas were everywhere. I got so drunk the cab driver woke me up when we got to Mindanao Avenue. I don’t even remember how I get inside the cab. Wheew! I will make sure that will not happen again. That is the worse part of my drinking career as of yet.

That same night, another team which I belong to as well had also a GA—videoke at the same resto, only separate rooms. The EP GA was two doors away from the Team Earl GA. I stayed here for the most of my sober times but when my TL from EP handed me a shot of tequila, I decided I was missing a lot. And indeed I was. The other room was a lot “funner (as Reese Witherspoon said it in Legally Blonde).” Everybody was dancing like crazy., a couple kissing each other and Neri singing her out with Aegis. Hahaha…

Those were the happy days…

If it weren’t for the people and friends in this company, I would have left as soon as I got regularized. But now, I am seriously giving it a thought…

Nu ni nu ni nu ni….

Plans for later:
(1) Get a haircut
(2) Watch MI3
(3) Watch Da Vincci Code
(4) Might go with Aphol and Apple to 169
(5) Coffee @ Bo’s Coffe Club SM North
(6) Look for someone to have sex with or go to Malate and get drunk

Anyone wanna cum… oh I mean join me?

2010 - Wow! I can't believe this blog is already 4 years old! I would like to thank everyone has been so nice to me and my blog. I am really happy that there are people out there who can relate to my life.

January 24, 2010 - I met this guy online who inspired me to write/blog again. To Sal, thank you for the inspiration. I owe you one.

I am a frustrated artist who finds refuge in bitterness and solitude. Angst is what I speak and love is what I hide. I never want to be seen naked for in nakedness there is truth and truth I am afraid of. Reality never seems to be fair, life in fact is iniquitous.

I like to put up a facade like a masked man in a party. I like to exude and air of mystery and fear. For in fear I earn respect and respect I treasure.

I like to play God once in a while, controlling the people who surround me. I love to twist emotions and bring out the insides.

I have found love but it left me suddenly for reasons until now I do not understand. He pierced right through everything that is me and left a broken arrow in my heart. But I let that happen because I loved him so sincerely. If there was a time I really loved someone, it would be that time. He rocked my world; sadly, he rocked me to my death.
