Letters to the Wind

Cela fait six mois ... et pourtant je encore poser cette question - que cette seule question:

Avez-vous vraiment exister dans ma vie?

Parce que si vous avez fait, je n'irais pas me questionner.
Parce que si vous avez fait, alors comment je viens jamais vraiment vous saviez?
Parce que si vous avez fait, je l'aurais su pourquoi tu as menti.
Et parce que si vous ne ...

J'aimerais savoir pourquoi vous avez choisi de ne pas exister en elle.

Voulez-vous vraiment continuer à faire semblant? ...

Another "Epic Fail, Epic Win" Day

What's up with today, anyway? Really.

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!


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.

Loop de Loop

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?
