Episode 220 – Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 (7750)
Until now, I’m still (and desperately) looking for the “right one” that will love me truly as my future partner forever. However, there are some distractions that I can’t be able to find someone because of the instances that she’s not the right one for me. Someone tells me that I can’t be able to have a formal courtship to some single ladies out there because I’m “weak”, shy or whatever they’re telling me that I don’t really like to hear their reactions or suggestions which makes me so distracting and disappoint. While I’m writing (or typing) on my laptop, I don’t realize that I’ve been still single for the last 1,000 days! Woah! I can’t believe that I have still no girlfriend for thousand days (about almost 33 months or 2.75 years). That’s really a milestone for me as a single young man.
Reaching a milestone makes me happy but sad because I’m still single, having no girlfriend or love life until now. In this episode, I’m now sharing my past experiences happened within 1,000 days after the break of long distance relationship (LDR) and the beginning of Post-LDR Era. I just made my timeline from Day 1 of becoming single and no love relationship at all until this day. Continue reading “#1000Days”
Episode 219 – Tuesday, March 20th, 2018 (7749)
Last Wednesday, I was stuck at work because of a hectic and complicated job that I ever handled. And for the first time ever in my present job, I didn’t go home in the whole day, and instead, I stayed at the office together with my officemates (including my skeptic supervisor) where we slept (in a hard box carton) together after our stressful job. Even though on the next day we started to work with tight and rush deadlines, I just decided to take my work for only half day and to go home after noon (I didn’t take my lunch afterwards). And yeah, it might be the worst and the most inconvenience that I ever have in my working career.
This was not my first time to stay at the office overnight. 6 years ago when I was working at Alabang, I stayed with my other colleagues to work overnight to finish the very tight, rush deadlines. I stayed there for almost 24 hours. But just last week, I stayed at the printing company in Pasay for almost 30 hours – the longest ever. However, in the next following days, I might be assigned with my other colleagues at the pre-press department to work longer (about 2-3 days) and never go home. This might cause our bodies tired and lack of getting enough rest (we have only one resting day). Continue reading “Inconvenience at Work”
Episode 217 – Wednesday, March 7th, 2018 (7736)
At my present job in Pasay, my three co-workers at the Pre-Press have rendered their overnight work to finish their job (especially in plating on the artwork) due of rush deadline on a project. They come at work around 8 in the morning then render overtime to finish their job until past midnight, and finally sometimes they can sleep at the office until the dawn when I come again at work in a brand new day. Most of the times, they don’t change their clothes or go home after work overnight. As I have been new in that company, they have told me that I will experience this thing as what they’re doing especially working overtimes and overnight, never go home for their loved ones, and stay at the office for at least two or three days. However, for me, this might be the worst type of job that I ever work because of harsh and stressful environment that might cause my colleagues into unhealthy.
But the good thing is that I’ve been working there as a probationary employee, need to render my working time for at least 6 months before becoming a regular employee of that company. And if ever, at the end of my probationary, I might decide either I’ll pursue my “new” career at pre-press or not. But probably, it’s better to not pursue my future there because, as I wrote about it two months ago, I might change my career something new and better. And yes, I really hate to be stressed in a harsh working environment like this where my colleagues usually stay at the office for 33 hours straight (although they can sleep there during wee hours).

Episode 212 – Tuesday, February 6th, 2018 (7707)
While I am thinking to change my career totally from being a graphic artist into something new, I might decide to pursue one of my dreams to become a special education (SPED) teacher where I will teach students who have difficulties in speech and hearing (in other word, deaf). It is because I have knowledge in sign language since I studied in a deaf school back several years ago. However, I will need to go back school again to study education (for at least two years or so) and take a professional exam to become a certified teacher for special education. But I have another option to use my “hidden” talent for my profession – to become a sign language interpreter.
My 7 years working in graphics might not grow or fulfill my career life although I already have lots of working experience on that field. But I just want to change my working career totally because I’ve been so tired to have restless and harsh environment with skeptic boss, strict monitoring, being bullied by some co-workers, and too much plenty of overtimes (and overnights too) as a graphic artist/designer. Even though I like designing and creating layouts in graphics, my job might be the one of the most stressful because of its clients wanting to have perfect design and giving a short deadline to finish the design. I really regret why I chose the field in graphics as my profession rather than becoming a SPED teacher (although the former was somewhat related to my chosen college course as Information Technology or I.T. because I love to use computers). But if ever I chose educational course back in college, I would have become a teacher in my present life teaching special students who are deaf. Continue reading “My Possible Return to “Deaf World””
Episode 211 – Friday, February 2nd, 2018 (7703)
Round 1 of 2018 has been done.
After celebrating New Year on the midnight of January 1, people feel they’re back to normal in the next following days. The first month has been somewhat a little bit ordinary for me. Although it’s still pretty much the same as last year, there were some happenings that I might be glad with some worries in my friendship and at my work.
Like my yearend report that I publish every end of the year, there’s the best… and also there’s the worst. I’m just starting the worst thing happened in my life in the month of January. Continue reading “My First Month Review”
Episode 210 – Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 (7694)
In the past 7 years since I graduated from college, I have worked hard to achieve my dreams for my family and also for my future. But what happened to my career life throughout 7 years? Hmmm… still no progress! While some of my former college classmates and friends have already enjoyed their better lives because of their good job such as promotions or level-up into higher position and better salary, my career life has been somewhat the same as what I first started to work back in late 2010, thanks to those who “ruined” my career. The worst times that I had happened just last year when I became jobless and having hard time finding a new job. Until last November, I finally got a new job in Pasay; however, things might be worse for me because of uncomfortable job position that I ever have right now.
I don’t know what I am explaining about, but why doesn’t my career life become successful so far? Has this been worsened because of those distractions in the past 7 years that bother my future goals? Well, I will discuss for this episode where my career life doesn’t grow into the fullest because of these situations. Continue reading “My Career Life Has Been Worsened (?)”
Episode 209 – Sunday, January 21st, 2018 (7691)
Throughout last weekend, I felt some loneliness because I didn’t talk with somebody else either personal (especially at work) or thru medium like phone via text (it’s already almost dead) and Facebook chat. After my “special friend” came to restore my happiness when we began to have our chat conversation, in later days, we’re starting to decline our time to chat each other (thanks to some signal/network problems and too much busy at work). But the worst is the occurrence where no one replies me at all in which causes me into sadness (with some anger because it feels like they “ignore” me or walang pumapansin). For most of the times, I just deactivated my Facebook account (but later I restored it back) for some reason as I knew they might forget me at all. Kalimutan na nila ako, wag na sila babalik sa buhay ko ah dahil lang sa “no reply”! Sorry for being harsh, but it’s true. That’s a sad reality in my life right now, and this is the reason why I’m always ALONE in my life right now. Walang kausap, walang kasama, palaging mag-isa sa lahat! Gosh! It’s New Year, but did my friends reply me? Hmmm… That’s very alarming!
Anyways, I feel I’m just “anti-social” person because, as you know, I’m introvert where I don’t want to join a group of friends bonding together. I know I will be “out of place” (OP) if I’ll join with them who are talking for themselves rather than talking with me. That’s why, for most of the times, I’ve never joined any group of friends or tropa, particularly from the Feast, a Light Group (LG) to share their experiences and problems. But I have asked you something, am I really an anti-social person? It’s because I feel I’m just alone in my life (ever since I became single or Post-LDR Era). Being alone is the loneliest part in my life right now. Even though I have a “special friend” who takes me thru chat with some care, it might not be enough to fulfill my happiness and to get rid my boredom and stress from work (thanks to my skeptic boss) and at home.
I have already written this topic almost two years ago about being anti-social on me. But this time, I will explain why I don’t have a social life in my (almost) entire life. Continue reading “Am I Anti-Social?”
