on career growth and imbecile replacements

we all come to a point where we have to choose between what's best for our careers and what's been our comfort zones for the past couple or so years.

being in the field of information technology does give one a variety of options in one's continuous search for career advancement and of course, greener pastures. i know that fully well.

people come and go, i know that for a fact. but if it's half of the team, i can't help but take most of the brunt. as i am new to this team, i am, as early as now, feeling it's toll. i'm still in transition and now have to step up. the pressure is on.

i'm still recovering from the thought of losing the ones closest to me. and as if it's not bad enough as it is, i heard that this imbecile wants to take on the opening. we are crippled now, i have to say. but getting one who could barely walk let alone stand is like a drizzle of salt over fresh wound.

i. don't. like. him.

everything about him. more than his attitude, his work ethic is close to non-existent. really.

i could take on added tasks and bigger responsibilities but i cannot stomach the thought of working with him.

please pretty please let the Sybase gods send us the needed help before my boss decides to get him!

i've always wanted to try it and today, i finally did.

despite the fact that all my friends were betting on me not actually going through with it, armed with all the courage i could muster and enough enthusiam might i add, i did it!

i have to admit, it was a bit scary in the beginning. i mean, it was going to be my first after all. but as the time drew near, fright turned to anxiety as i could not wait.

i've heard people talk about how wonderful and exciting this kind of experience is but i was just too chicken to actually try. that, and the lack of confidence i got from my friends.

today, however, i stood to prove them wrong. and boy, was i ever glad i did. it.was.so.cool! hah! and ya'all thought i couldn't!

i cannot believe i'm saying this, but yes, i am ever so proud to say that i no longer am a Divisoria virgin. really. seriously.

Mama Mia!

based on the musical of the same title, Mama Mia! which stars Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried is just what i needed after a bad week at work.

who would've thought that the devil who wore Prada could sing and dance to tunes popularized by 80's singing group, ABBA or that James Bond would agree to wear spandex. really. it was extremely entertaining.

the music was fun, the actors were great and the view of Greece was simply breathtaking.

a musical comedy like no other, Mama Mia! will make surely make your gloomy day a bit brighter and will definitely turn your frown to lots and lots of laughter.

miguel paulo

today, i became an aunt.

welcome to this imperfect yet wonderful world dear nephew.

may you grow up to be a man of conviction and strength. a man who treats a lady the way every lady should be treated. a man who values family as much as he values life because at the end of the day, your family is the one who will stand by you no matter what.

may you be as strong willed as your mom, as gentle and kind as your dad, and as loving and generous as your grandparents.

you may not know it yet, but i love you already.
