6 months in

it just sunk in right this very minute, as i was thinking of what to blog about, that i have been employed for exactly 6 months. i started working February 1, and now it's July 31. with all the craziness in the office today, i totally forgot that i wanted to sort of celebrate this "milestone" with my officemates (sorta).

i've been thinking about what mamu said, whether we really did this to ourselves, procrastinate to the point where we're all now rushing things that should/might/could have been done by now. although i think in some ways she is right, i also think that there is simply too much to do that you can't do everything ahead of schedule. some things will have to be set aside to rush on a later date. or, i don't know. maybe we are just lazy shites who love working til the very last minute, basking in the shared tension of the mountain of unfinished work we have to dive into.

i'm dead tired. i desperately want the comforts that my mattress is offering to me. and yet i must plow on. although i could leave it off til the morning. hahaha

it is so hard to go to work and have to plink away on machines that should have seen retirement about a decade ago (i kid you not, my computer still runs on a windows '98 platform). i now totally get why jamie is rarely in the office. it is because our office equipment sucks. well, the pay sucks too but that is another issue entirely.

i have concluded that i am too tired to function. therefore, i will adjourn to the bed i am currently sitting on and shall reconvene with my tapes at 6 in the morning. here's to hoping that i wake up.

oh and yeah, before my 7th month officially starts in a minute (literally) happy 6-monthsary to me!

i'm so excited for my "day off" tomorrow. granted, it was like i had a day off today on account of i ditched work (with permission, of course) to go to ICA and help my friend Martin with his presentation thing (although all i did was provide comic relief everytime i'd forget to click for the next slide, and... well, click the mouse for the next slide. and help him not get lost. haha),but tomorrow, i will get to sleep the whole day away here at home. wuhoo! color me extra excited. :D

in other news, i officially hate red ants now. with a passion. they make my life hard. the infestation here at home is annoying. and a burden. burn in hell, red ants.

what i should have said:

for future reference, that wasn't how you treat women. or people, for that matter. if you want respect, you have to give it back, too. and just so we're clear, the last vestiges of respect that i had for you just flew out the window, along with any kind of hope that we could be friends.

this is just so messed up.

culture shock

iba talaga ang environment sa office namin. i still can't get used to it, even after more than 5 months of working here. i still get surprised by things happening here. or maybe it's because i started paying closer attention to the happenings in this office and that's why i've started getting shocked again.

so for the record, let's clear something up:

i am not looking for a boyfriend.

heck, at this point in time, i'm not even looking for a MALE friend. it only complicates things. and makes me tsismis material. i'm so sick of it.

so what if i'm close to my guy friends? it does not mean i like them that way. sheesh

and to YOU: i am not yours. you have SOMEONE ELSE. stop hitting on me. or getting all jealous because you THINK someone else is hitting on me. he isn't, but you have NO RIGHT. AT ALL. deeeezgusting.

para namang ngayon lang kayo nakakita ng babae. pft.

this is what's frustrating about a small office. people are in your face asking you/speculating about your personal life all the friggin time. like they have a right to know what goes on in it.wala akong social life. pero wag nyo kong imbentuhan ng social life. hindi ko yun kailangan. what i need to do right now is accumulate wealth so i can be rich. hahahaha

iinom na lang ulit ako. alcoholic ampucha. hahahahahahahahahaha

i'm glad this week is almost over. tonight was one of the better ways to end the week.

how i wish i could keep you both and just chill, all day everyday. hahaha

work is hard when you're the bottom feeder. everything gets passed to you. especially when the person immediately above you is named ************. good friend, sucky co-worker. i honestly wish for the day when i don't have to work with you anymore.

i'm so sleepy.
