Apart from having that as my LSS, (last song syndrome)..I had the euphoric feeling that of an excited student on his first day of school this morning..only, for me, it has got to do with my first day of work. Brand new week, brand new day, brand new work. And how did it go? well, not much tasks yet, mostly...just some "tunganga" moments while reading a manual and familiarizing myself about the Purchasing Processes I'll be dealing with in the coming days and observing while I was oriented by a colleague whom I'll be sharing tasks with. Only she wasn't able to orient me fully yet as she has some urgent matters to attend to. So pasundot-sundot pa lang. While the things I'll be needing and my PC are being set-up, I also took the time to accomplish first the necessary HR, agency and bank forms for new hires. As Joy said, samantalahin habang wala pa ang workload, so savor the moment hehe!
As I had experience working for a call center also in the Finance Department before, I'm hoping I'd be able to adjust well with the culture and new working environment easily. Colleagues wise, I'm just fortunate to work again with two colleagues who used to be my close officemates way back my Contactpoint years. In fact, they are the ones who referred me to this job for the mean time as I'm waiting for my application with a government corporation. (So Tin, yep, I'm still pursuing my desire to work for the government hehe!) So at least, panatag ang loob ko kasi we pretty knew each other and go along well. I missed their company especially yung lunch outs namin kaya I'm just estatic to go through those again..in fact nagsimula na kanina hehe!
As for the workload I'd be having, I'm given a heads up and I'm expecting it's not gonna be a walk in the park. Anticipating such, in fact, made me miss my "batugan" life that ended yesterday. I'm missing my limitless sleeping, digiscrapping, surfing...though I have internet connection naman sa office but then siyempre alangan naman gawin ko mga yun haha! But then again, at least, I'd be wearing a big grin on my face come Oct 15, wouldn't I?
On a sad note, my heart is still weeping with yesterday's UAAP Finals Game 1 results between UST & Ateneo. Probably, you have read/seen the story on the news or even watched it how the Tigers almost had it but lost with a big mistake on the last second of the game (yes! as in 1 second). Darn! I was there in the coliseum and was one among the yellow gallery rejoicing when Allan Evangelista sank the shot that gave them the one-point lead with 2-3 seconds left. Early on with the game, it was one heck of a neck-to-neck battle...as in nagpapalitan lang ng lead. And who would've thought, the game will be decided on the last second of the Fourth Quarter as the Atenean Kramer sank the ball easily from a genius play designed by their Coach. As the Tigers' Coach Pido said, nakalimutan ang depensa. They learned their lesson in a hard way..but then..it ain't over 'til it's over. May Game 2 pa and I'm sure the Tigers will be back with a vengeance on Thursday. As they say, pag nadadapa, lalong nacha-challenge at nagiging matapang..Anyway, win or lose, the UST Tigers have already proven their abilities this season...kaya:
Black gold, black white
Go fight, fight, fight
and win for U-S-T!!!!!
