Decided to Stay Still

There are a lot of things that's happening in the office right now...and most of them are really not good. Most of us can't handle the stress anymore. The que is unbelievable, seems like the management only thinks of the complany's profit more than their employees, the scorecard keeps on getting tougher and tougher for us to pass... and as a result of it, many decided to just shift companies. My office mates are applying for the same position in a different company and they are five of them! If they would all be hired, only around 10 of us
would be left in the team out of 15. That would be very sad if it would happen. I still am decided to stay for the next one year and 9 months...till' I had my five year in service and I'm outta here. I just need to be financially stable till' I can manage to put up my own business, have a part time job and concentrate on my online job. I just need to focus and not be affected by what's happening in the office. My situation is different from theirs so I need to stand still and just aim for my own goal. Help me ,God.

Never Forget A Name

Hey everyone! At last, it's my restday and I am now ready to blog my night away. haha. Anyways, I will share to you what I have read in a magazine. You know, I have this thing for fashion and educational magazines. I want to read those magazines that would give me tips and advises on how to organize my life and how to improve my overall personality... and I think of sharing this with you.

It's about how to be more of a people person and to how to gain more friends. This should be the things that we should remember when were being introduced to another person.

Shake hands.
Address the person you’re being introduced to by shaking their hand and saying their name out loud. Initiating contracts this way makes it easier to commit then name to memory.

Pay attention when the person tells you his or her name. If you didn’t hear it well, ask him or her to repeat it. Looking at them speak creates a visual memory to attach to the name.

Repeat the name for retention.
Make a conscious effort to call the person by his or her name when talking to them. “Peter, what’s your opinion on this?” or “So, how was your vacation, Shella?”

I would need to memorize these three simple things by heart.

Counting My Blessings

I was'nt able to post any new entries for the past couple of weeks because my sister who just came home last December 20th with her hubby and daughter was the one using this computer. I am always using my laptop for browsing but my globe tatoo is just unbelievable. It takes about five minutes before I could pull up a page - the only thing I could pull up in a snap is Yahoo Messenger. Anyways, I am so happy that I was able to buy my small pink laptop. I intend to use it for blogging purposes and would serve as my memory bank especially when I am so tired from work and I can't force myself to get up my bed and post an entry through my desktop which is located at the living room. I purchased it for only 7 thousand pesos through an online store.

It's a the small ASUS EEPC 701 pink netbook that is so handy it could fit in my office handbag. I love it! I also was able to buy the MP5 player I've been dying to get but due to financial restrictions, it took me three months to purchase it. If not because of my 13th month pay and my SSS loan, I know I won't be able to buy these things which will serve as a Christmas gift for myself. Thank you Lord for all of these things and for financial blessings you've showered me before the end of 2009. To you be the glory Jesus and I hope and pray that the year 2010 would be a good year for all of us. Amen!
