The Return of the Comeback
0 comments (+)
DISCLAIMER: FULL OF RAGE.
Hello there, blogger/blogspot. I haven't updated you in about a month and I apologize for that. My days have been spent juggling between work, my girlfriend and myself. And blogging just doesn't seem to be a practical idea since I would just rather sleep after a long and tedious 9-hour shift.
But here I am, finally having the extra time to post something. Plus, I think I should go back to writing (even if what I mostly write are all just a bunch of random crap), because honestly, I've been struggling to express myself in English which doesn't really happen to me and the whole thing just absolutely sucks! This is also the reason why I want to go back to reading. But since I can't even find the time to make a simple blog post, that would most probably take me just about 30 minutes, then how the hell do I even expect myself to find the time to actually finish an entire book! PSSHH
Well, to tell you the truth, I still don't have the "extra time" to blog. It just so happens that we have some free time here at the office and thank god for the internet connection that we all have on our individual work stations, so here I am, able to open my blogger account, and now, post something.
Going back to the issue of having a hard time expressing myself in English...
I can't even begin to explain how incredibly annoying it is to stutter and stumble and to even go down the road of exerting Tagalog words here and there into an English-composed sentence, just so I could get my message across. It's annoying to experience because I am not really used to not being able to explain things in English, or tell stories in English or say whatever the hell I wanna say in English. But since I've been having a hard time lately, then I suppose the only solution for this "concern" is to start writing again--and reading some books (if I find the time).
But that isn't really what I wanted to blog about. I originally wanted to express the feelings that I've been having since I started my new job, which could be boiled down into bullets.
Some of my co-trainees are stupid. And it's not really that I'm being mean or anything, but really, a bunch of them are just really stupid. I mean... I can't even explain, but they're just really annoyingly stupid.
It irritates me how they seem to expect me to "change" my ways just to please them. I mean, I'm not exactly the tamest and the most demure person in the world, but somehow it's like they want me to be like that just because I'm a girl. I'm like, seriously?! None of you is turning "wild" just to keep up with me. Why the hell do you expect me to tame myself down for any of you?!
A lot of them are know-it-alls. If you don't understand something, just please, let the one who actually does, help/assist you. It's not like anyone's gonna look down on you or think that you're dumb just because you don't understand a certain thing--and when I say a "certain thing", I mean stuff like troubleshooting shit that nobody really expects anyone to know right off the bat, especially if you don't have any technical background.
Some of them like to pretend that they know everything, when clearly they don't. Just because you're age is above 25 years and I'm only 21 doesn't exactly mean that you know more than I do. I mean, you could be 40 and still be living under your parents house, single, doesn't have a job and obviously has no long-term goal in life, and I would for sure know so much more about life thn you will ever do. It just sucks when these people act like, "I'm 27/30/35 and you're just a kid who hasn't experienced that much yet, hence you not knowing anything about life so just shut up." And I'm like, "BITCH PLS"
There are times when I daydream of stabbing some of these people and watching them all die. Hahaha! I consider myself as one of the meanest people here on Earth.
Plus, the guards in this company are hella annoying. I would suggest that they coordinate with other employees so they wouldn't reprimand us of anything that our trainer said we are allowed to do in the first place.
I warned you that this post would be full of rage. So there you go.

Stress & Frustrations
2 comments (+)
Seriously, fuck the Philippine Government!
I don't understand why they are not able to function properly. I really don't. Their consistent incompetence is just beyond me! Can somebody please explain to me why it is so hard for them to fix whatever shit they need to fix on their system, or fire the lazy-ass, corrupt people working in their offices.
So here's the thing: I web-searched for an easy way to get my NBI clearance form, since I need a new one for my new job. I read that the nearest NBI clearance center to me--which is at Robinson's Metro East--is just inexplicably stressful. The line starts at 1AM (seriously wtf is up with this 1AM shit?!), and the center opens at around 8AM. I've also read that the people working in their work way too slow so it would take some of these people a heck of a long time just to get this piece of paper.
What I don't understand is this: why don't they just open one (or more for the bigger cities like QC) NBI clearance center in every city, at least here in Metro Manila since more people live here. And the only people who could get a clearance or renew their clearance in that certain center are those that actually live in the city where it's located. That way, other people wouldn't add to the queue and it would be much easier. And if the government would complain about this suggestion, saying that they don't have the budget for it and yadah yadah. Well, based on experience, an NBI clearance center has at least 3 or 4 working computers and 1 or 2 printer(s) and this other device for the NBI ID. How the fucking much would a desktop computer cost nowadays? You could probably get one for 30,000 and I suppose that's not too much considering the budget given to a national department of the government like NBI.Read more »

Motivations to find a new job
3 comments (+)
These are my motivations to finally get a job and to quit being a fucking bum already. Since I've been unemployed for 4 months now (yes I've been feeding and leeching off my mother for 4 months now which is kinda embarrassing but whatever lol), I believe it's about time that I get my ass off of my bed and find a job already. And a good motivation would just about do the trick to get me started with my job hunt.

A two-part blog post

PART 1: Wishes & Loves
I wish I could dress myself like these girls do to themselves. The indie, sort-of-lazy kind of way. The sad part is, I don't know where to buy these types of clothing. I could go through so much racks at some thrift shop before I feel the need to just stop and be content with what I have at hand. Plus, a good fashion sense would come in handy too. Unfortunately, I think I just have less than 50% of that sense. So the closest that I could get to this kind of fashion statement is this:Read more »

Things I Love Thursday

My blog's current layout <3
I love the way my blog looks at the moment. And the fact that I made the whole thing myself. It's been quite a long time since I edited blogger's classic template codes cause I've been blogging on tumblr for the past 2 years. But it's great that I still know how to so I was able to edit my layout, which took me 2 or 3 days actually. It was worth all the headache though lol
