Just got the chance to stay ol from a 4-day activity ng BFAR para sa mga newly-hired. Grabe. Hindi ko inaasahang ma-eenjoy ko siya. :)) Kasi nung Tuesday, ayaw ko pang umalis ng office dahil andami ko pang aasikasuhin para sa Baguio trip ng Division. Tapos ako lang mag-isa ung galing sa Div namin. Si Sheena kasi, college batchmate ko na sa BFAR Pasay nagttrabaho, Wednesday pa pinayagang pumunta ng Tanay. In short, I was not really looking forward to this.
HOWEVER, the moment na sumakay ako ng bus, narealize kong kailangan ko pala ung break na ito. Break sa araw-araw na byahe, sa bahay at trabaho. Mas malapit pa sa nature dahil sa isang farm ung activity namin.
Ung byahe, blissful. Nakatulog ako ng maayos tas puro kanta pa ni Ed Sheeran ung sa bg kaya relaxing talaga. Pagdating sa farm, euphoric ako Kasi ponds kagad ung nakita ko. Naalala ko ung first job ko, kasi puro farm visits ginagawa ko nun. Tiningnan ko kagad ung mga isda, at nakisabay magpakain sa mga un. First time ko rin nakakita sa personal ng knifefish, isang invasive species na umaapekto ngaun sa Laguna de Bay.
Masaya ung experience kasi marami akong nakilalang bagong kaibigan. Ung sakto lang sila, hindi maingay, hindi rin mahirap kausapin. Sabi nga nung mga facilitators, good guys daw kami, Kasi behave lahat. :)
Ung mga topics, timing na malaman namin as newly-hired, especially ung discussion tungkol sa stereotypes sa mga government employees. The choice is ours kung magiging ano kami: the stereotypes or the best that we can be.
Ito ung experience na hindi ko makaklimutan. Ok lang sa’kin na matapos na, hindi na rin kailangan pang ulitin kasi na-enjoy ko naman talaga. Mas mahalaga, ung magiging epekto nito sa’kin bilang tiga-BFAR at workmates nung mga nakasama ko.
One of the reasons I stick here is my desire to express my thoughts. I do think deep and non-stop. And sometimes, what I come up in my mind is beautiful that it needs to be expressed. So here I am n tumblr.
However, I wasn’t able to go here lately. :( Blame it on my phone that only allows me to like posts, and the net in the office that restricts reaching social media sites.
And that little notebook is my companion for most of those times. i went back to writing, which I fins interesting. It’s more private and I find it more comfortable to write all my thoughts since I know I’m the only one who’ll see it. I thought of posting what I wrote here but i decided not to.
So meet my Little Kraft Sketch Book that bears all my poor doodles and endless thoughts. :)
Kaya tumataba e. Natural na sa office na may magdadala ng food for all. As someone answered to me when I once asked:
Ung trabaho natin.. stressful, kasi forefront service tau. Kaya dapat mag-effort tayo makapag-relax kahit papano. Alangan naman ikaw lang ung kakain, e lahat naman tayo nasstress. Tsaka totoong mas masaya kapag namimigay ka.
Tama naman. At para sa’kin, masarap talaga pag libre.hihi
In my first day in my 2nd job, I arranged files.. these files. It was a bit hard, I can say, but i didn’t mind. I know that required a lot of work, patience and effort, but I was surprisingly okay with that.
Up until now,I still have the same answer whenever people ask me about my job.
To be honest, it is hard, but I don’t mind. A job is not a job if it’s not hard, or requires extra effort and patience. If one quits his or her job because it’s hard, he or she is not looking for a job, but a vacation.
Maybe because I’m satisfied with it right now-the people I work with and what I do. Not because I get along well with them. I’m just contented. I don’t yet see myself working here 30 years after, but I’m not sad. Because I’m more busy working with I have right now, than just thinking about the future.
Yes, I have plans with my job here, and I’m considering those with my decisions everyday. Not thinking about it big-time, but I consider those.
For the past 6 years, a German shepherd called Capitán has slept next to the grave of his owner every night at 6pm.
His owner, Miguel Guzmán died in 2006. Capitán, the dog, disappeared while the family attended the fueral services. A week later reatives of Guzmán were visiting the cemetery when they were astounded to find the dog next to the owner’s grave.
The cemetery director says that the dog comes around each night at 6pm, and has done so for the past 6 years!
