Epic Win #1: I slept at 4AM, woke up at 7AM but went back to bed after a few minutes. Then my mom woke me up again to configure the internet connection of my brother's PC. I specifically told her that I'd do it IF she gives me my allowance for the week. Heck, yeah it worked! :)
Epic Fail #1: I was really, really, really looking forward to start my job training this Thursday. Only to have it moved to a later date - make that one month (see previous post).
Epic Win #2: Call me motormouth, but I chatted on the phone with a good friend of mine while grocery-shopping with my mom. It was way hilarious than expected!
Epic Fail #2: Just as me and my mom headed for Glorietta for dinner, I came across someone on the way there. Someone I hope I'd never, EVER see again in my life. Not that I'm mad at him/her, but it's just... awkward. Hmm.
Epic Win #3: I satisfied myself with a hot bowl of noodles + dimsum. ♥
Epic Fail #3: So what if I never knew there was a gelato store in Greenbelt? Oh heck, now I'm obliged to sample their gelato's some other time. Boo me!
BUT I STILL LOVE THIS DAY, BECAUSE:
Epic Win #4: I got ANOTHER job. Yes, you've read that right. Something to keep me pre-occupied while I wait for my job training on September.
Okay, just when I thought I'd be scrambling to get on tip-top shape for my first day of training this Thursday - a couple of phone calls changed it all.
Last Friday, someone rang my phone but I wasn't able to take the call. The number reflected was 792-3000. Later that day, I learned that the number belongs to the trunkline of Convergys - my employer.
Today, I dialed the number in the hopes of knowing what that missed call was about. I was transferred to CVG 5's receptionist, then to Ryan of HR who gave me the number of the guy who handles the account I'm in - a guy named OJ.
After almost an hour of trying to get through the line, I recited (haha!) my very memorized piece on why I'm calling him. Then he went to check the training schedules. Unfortunately, a dilemma is about to break loose. MY CLASS (TRAINING) GOT RE-SCHEDULED TO SEPTEMBER 2, 2010 - a month from now. And that I should drop by the site within the week to have my contract 'changed'.
Hmm. Let's analyze the situation here.
Although for one, I know that I do need a job right now because times are hard - I can't blame them for moving my training schedule. I may never really know the reason behind this. But if it's because I'm a Nursing graduate who just landed a sort-of coveted part-time job in a BPO company while waiting for the board results to come out. Then I'd be really disappointed.
I do hope these loose ends could be tied up. One way over the other, I still want that job offer. And I've decided to allow them to 'change' my contract. Yeah.
Okay, now what to do for the next 4 weeks. Suggestions, anyone?
