Office Girl

I am currently working as a supervisor (Team lead) at a Healthcare Data/IT KPO (Knowledge Process Outsourcing) company similar to BPOs. I will be turning 5 years soon!

I am actually a B.S Nursing graduate. Yes,  I was able to be a nurse at a hospital and clinic but I guess, it is not really what I wanted. In the first placed, I took up nursing because back then it was so in demand and I really love Science, Biology and other stuff about the human body! haha.

Anyway, aside from being a Nurse, I also had my few years as an Online English Tutor to Koreans. Its was fun while it lasted but I didn’t really find any career growth in that line of work so I decided to resign. When I first started here in my current job, I was surprised as this was a formal setting kind of Job. We need to dress up casual business attire during Mondays to Thursdays and  Friday is our wash day. It’s hard to choose what to wear everyday unlike before as a Nurse we have a Uniform and I will never  run out of clothes!

Well what to wear (smart or business casual and dressdown on Fridays) is just a minor part of working here. But, as days go by, the more I realized how much I like this kind of Job. Like any other work or office work, I had experienced tensions with my co-workers and I was even reported to HR for something that I did not intentionally do, I think I posted this one before. There are also pressures in terms of deliverable, cut offs and deadlines and as a team lead, I get to talk to different kinds of people and need to vary my approach for each person.

Does your job make you happy? (50 questions) Although this is not so much related to my Course, I am very much happy with this Company and with the people I worked with (after all i wouldn’t last for 5 years). If this was asked to me during my first few days or years, I would definitely say No. Time and experience can really do so much and I am currently Happy for sure.

Right now, I am having second thoughts of working from home to be able to look after my son as he grows up and giving up on this work will be definitely hard for me.


50 Questions

As I have always wanted, my blog has been and will always be as personal as possible. I do not even share this to my other social media accounts as I would want to keep all my rants and thoughts away from those people that I know. Away from criticism and unsolicited advises especially from people that pretends to care but really just wants or are looking for someone to be the topic of their afternoon coffee meet ups and random gossips.
Well Anyways, I thought to somehow distract myself from thinking of my current issues in life. I found these 50 Questions (50 Questions To Ask Someone If You Wanna Know Who They Really Are) from the Overrated Thought Catalog haha.

Lately ive been thinking a lot about my work and how ive been really bored with my daily activities. At first, it was hard for me but now, ive completely adapted and capable of doing things without the help of my workmates and even my team leader. I dont want to boast but they need me more now.

And it occurred to me how ive been wanting challenging task and activities. Honestly, my job doesnt allow me to be competitive enough and challenging enough. Im becoming really bored with the daily things that i do at work. I want to do something that will somehow test my capacities and push me to the things that can put me in places were i will be able to use my mind and abilities to their limits.

It’s not because i feel mentally or intellectually advanced (wrong choice of word) than my workmates (well, there are times that i wont deny that..thanks to my parents’ genes). But seriously, i want to explore my skills and capacities and i dont think that what im doing now can challenge my abilities.

Oh life..what are you doing to me.

“Don’t let the bastards get you down.”

Oh how I missed writing. I’ve been really busy with work lately, early to work and going home really late. That’s how my life’s been up to.

Occupied and stressed. Time is so fast, didn’t even notice that I’m now in my sixth month in my work. I love the job, love my friends, although sometimes I keep having misunderstandings with my co-workers and TL. You know those times that you just can’t contain your emotions anymore and you feel like exploding? yea, those are the times that I loose control over my patience and unintentionally hurt my co-workers. It’s not that I’m a warfreak person but sometimes, I just felt so unappreciated and whenever I do good things for them it always turns out that I’m the one who’s ruining the situations. Ugh.

Anyway, I know how much I’m giving all my efforts for the team and the process. I know that all these things will somehow pay off in time. I won’t ever let them get on my way. Keeping it real positive.

There she goes

I’ve been struggling a lot these past few days. It’s all because of our new TL who used to be our manager but got demoted, not just because our TL resigned but maybe because of her out of this world attitude.
I can’t even imagine how she got into this kind of position with that kind of character. When she was still our Manager, all the TL’s hated her and now that she’s our TL, we don’t have any choice but to communicate with her. I was the one who really got affected by this, I was the team’s POC and I don’t like talking to her, she just got an awful attitude that I can’t handle. I do believe in the saying that you will be treated by the way you act or the way you treat the other person. And she acts like a total bitch and I can’t help but to be a bitch to her. I know that she’s my TL, her position is higher than me but the way she treats us is not like a professional person.

I’m just so fed up with her. I tried not giving a crap about her but I there are still times that I need to talk to her because of work. I’m just so happy that have a lot of friends at work who’s at my back and I know that whatever happens they will be on my side.

Fix me

If i could describe my feelings right now, coldplay’s fix you would definitely pass as my musical score.

One more day til the weekends but my body is already begging for peace and mercy. I know there’s no easy work or job but i just feel so deprived right now. I was given a lot of task, to be the Person on Charge of our group which leads to having endless responsibilities and accountabilities to our group. There’s a lot of tasks that requires to melt your brain and expand my patience. Not physically tiring but oh st. Peter it’s mentally draining. They also assigned me to learn another process that i don’t even know where to start.

Sometimes, i say to my self that maybe i just need to be more calm and manage my emotions when it comes to work but it’s just so hard to do,to think when you’re mentally exhausted.

Whew, this is my life nowadays, i look stressed, i feel stressed and i dont know how to cope. 😦

Burned up.

It’s been a really hard Monday for me yesterday. A lot of things happened at work and I don’t even know where to start with this blog post. Last week, our Team Leader resigned and this gave all of us a surprise because it was very urgent. Of course, we have no choice but continue with our jobs and work. And now, another member of the team decided to leave the company due to her personal reasons and guess who’s really affected with this? Me! 

Our manager decided that I should go on a training to temporarily replace our team mate. At first, my group mates were bothered by this decision because they thought that I will leave the group and they said that it will have a huge impact for the group’s performance. We talked to our manager and she agreed that everything will just be for a short while. 

I have no choice because they needed someone very urgently and I don’t like to let them down. Anyhow, I feel grateful that they recognize my skills and abilities with my job. I know this will be a burden (because I’ll have to do my task as an RSA member and now also as KFPB) but I know that everything that i’ll be doing now will be worth someday. This will be a big acid test for me. Wish me all the luck! =)

My thoughts in restrospect

> My dad’s being so weird, telling stories about him that I’ve never heard before. Is this just old age or something is really wrong? Should I take this seriously?

> I will always wonder how and why you became a manager. Poor decision making, bad attitude, defective English grammar and very inarticulate. Maybe, I should blame all this luck on your voodoo doll. Should this persists, I must give a notice of withdrawal as soon as possible.

> My friends would be skeptical if they found out how our house looks like now. Thanks to hoarding, cats, dogs and the lack of will to clean the house.

> I don’t know if this is jealousy but I noticed that whenever I ask him to have a photo with me, he seems so annoyed. But then, he likes taking photos of himself with his friends, especially those pretty girls (sweet poses too). This is me giving simple things a shit. But this is how I feel, yet again thank you doubts.

> I’m so stressed that I’m having unusual thoughts, with me giving a big deal out of them. Sorry.

Fine and dandy

Not sure if those are the words that best explains the positive things that’s happening with me and my work.

I miss my old friends, old workmates from EPI and as well as Healthway but I believe that I made the right decision to accept this job.It’s been a long time since I posted something here in my blog and it’s all because I’ve been enjoying my current job, I’m getting along really well with my workmates. I don’t feel any competition or negative things when I’m with them. Our Team Leader is one of my friends , they always make me laugh and I get appreciated a lot.

Sometimes, my male workmates tend to get really annoying. They always notice the things that I’m doing and they also get touchy at time, massaging my back, pinching my face and even my tummy and fats.
It’s really iritating but I try to tolerate them as much as I can. They are still really nice to me though.

Aside from those annoying things, this place is really refreshing. I’m satisfied and I can see myself staying here for a long time. =)

KTV Sunday

After 1 month of planning, finally we were able to get together and spend some time to update each other, especially regarding their work. It’s been 3 weeks since I left my job there and it’s so good to know that they miss me and still think about me. 

They’re still bragging about their work and how the management handles the clinic, I feel really relieved that I made a good decision to leave that job. I keep hearing, negative and   awful things that they are experiencing and I can’t help but remember and feel my past experiences on that place. 

I miss them so much and I miss singing too (a frustrated singer here!), so we decided to go to a KTV bar just near Robinsons. 










Goofy pictures and crazy times. Sisters at heart and partners in crime. =))
