Rants 002: Backtrack

Things will always remain difficult if not everyone’s doing their part.

I actually am proud of my first job. The experience is great, the job title is cool, and the pay is okay. During the training, I honestly thought that I will be able to do all my tasks. It won’t be a problem since I’m used to juggling and fitting my tasks on a hectic schedule – I have PGH to thank for that. I never got into thinking that this job wouldn’t be as great as I thought it would be if my teammates wouldn’t be doing theirs. It’s a pain in the ass, really – LITERALLY.

I know something was already off during the training. I knew well enough that most of my coordinators are far from all the expectations everyone has. We had our demo until 8pm as proof for that. But I shrugged it off. I thought that they learned A LOT from all the comments and critiques they got and they’ll eventually apply it on their respective jobs. I was wrong.
I have never been this frustrated with other people before. I’m used to making my way through a world with a lot of people better than me. I’m used to dealing with people who knows what they want and their way on things. I’m used to working with people who don’t need a litany of answers for simple tasks. I’m used to being with people who understand the instruction before they actually even finish reading the sentence. Don’t get me wrong, can deal with the masses, I know how to adjust when the situation calls for it. How can you not feel the way I’m feeling when the people I’m talking about are the ones within your league; professionals as you are and had almost the same undergraduate experiences as you did? I won’t ever tire of repeating it – IT’S FRUSTRATING.

I have already done my part, constantly reminding what to accomplish and what to do. Even the simplest details, I make sure to relay just so everything will be clear. Why is it ever difficult to do the things you know you should be doing, in the first place? Is it really that hard to understand that you have to type and send me a soft copy through email and NOT scan it, but you scan it anyway? For a week now, I have been trying to decipher what the root cause of all this mess is. I was only able to come up with one –LISTENING. Yes, they never listen. Hearing can never the same as listening – it is not one and the same. If I can just make them listen to me even for awhile; if they’ll just let themselves listen carefully on what is being said, then maybe, reminders won’t be necessary. Jobs will be a pound easier and I’ll be happier.

So yeah, wait for me there. I’ll be coming within this week, and I’ll deal with you head on. You haven’t seen what anger really means, not yet.

Edz' Day Out

It wasn't actually a fun-filled one, but yes, I did went out today and visited a lot of places. HAHA Only if it was for leisure, I surely would have filled this post with shrieks, but no, it's not. And mind you, I only did it because it was required and wouldn't have done it if I had any option.
Initially, I was so clueless on where to go. But after a help of a few wonderful friends and acquaintances, I was able to process almost all of the requirements. Hoorah for me! To tell you the truth, this has been my first time to go places I've never been to without someone to accompany, guide, and fetch me. Hahaha. Such a baby. Anyway, I no longer will bore you with other stuff. So, here goes, here are my accomplishments for the day:

  • NBI Clearance 
    • I actually already processed this yesterday but because of the long line, I decided to go  back for it today. Turns out, it was a marvelous decision. I no longer needed to fall in line awhile ago and got cleared after like arriving there for 10 minutes. (Another hoorah for me!:D)
  • SSS No.
    • I almost lost hope yesterday when I found out that it can only be processed on designated places within your locality. I don't know where their office in Cavite is so imagine my fury. Haha. So, I went to the Cavite branch today and was shocked with the line - again. But the good news here is that, SSS was more efficient compared to NBI so after waiting for 20 minutes or so, I finally got mine. :)
  • Brgy Clearance
    • Just got it after like 5 minutes. And the best part here was, it's free! Yes, FREE! :D
  • Medical
    • Actually, I'm still not fully done with it yet. I still have to get my results this coming Saturday. So, I should muster all my convincing powers tomorrow to my supervisor. I hope my charms work.XD
Oh well, I'll just update you guys next time. Been a long day. I'm awfully tired. Here's my last treat for you. Tadaaaaaaaaaaah! My envelope filled with my sweat for the day. Hahaha Ciao! :D

Rants 001: Who needs help?

I'm going ballistic right now. Literally. Simple tasks become complicated when there's no one to guide you through it. Demmit. Even the internet's not helping. I swear, I won't go home this afternoon without a single requirement at hand. Grrr!

Welcome, Edz!

Yey! Finally, a blogspot of my own. I've been lurking other sites for a couple of months now, thinking that "someday, not today, I'll have the reason to start blogging". And finally, that "someday" happens to be today! Yey!

Some time back, I've decided to have a blog only if I've already had the chance to travel. I told myself that my blog would serve as my log to all the beautiful places I'd get to visit.

Just last summer, my wonderful girlfriend and I planned a Palawan trip. I happened to be totally excited for that not only because it'll be my first leisure travel without my family but also because finally, I'd get to start a blog I've always longed for. Of course, as with all of my other plans, it was a flop. Summer came and passed, no Palawan, no blog. A lot of things happened (there was the board exam review, actual board exam, among others) and passed, still nothing. Until finally, just a few minutes ago, I suddenly felt an itch to write (or type, for that matter) again.

God has been most wonderful to me for the last few weeks. I passed the recent Nutritionist-Dietitian Licensure Exam with flying colors, and without actually looking for it, opportunity came knocking at my doorstep just when I least expected it to.

Just 2 weeks ago, I received wonderful news that I passed the board exam. It was a Friday.And exactly 2 fridays after, I received an email confirming that I'll be having my first ever job very soon. This might not be a big thrill to everyone since I was not able to get the position I was initially rooting for, but whatev! I just passed my freakin first ever interview and got a higher position! HAHA

When it rains, it definitely pours. I feel so blessed. I am blessed! :))

My long planned leisure travels may not yet be within arm's reach; Palawan may not be seeing the most of me any time soon; but, I know this day marks the first day of my newly chosen life. I know this will be one of the many firsts. This will be my first step as I pave my way to the top. I'm glad to have you, blogger, to celebrate my recent successes in life. Kudos to that! :))
