For how long can you hold the battlefield?

...mine probably ends now.

This is one of those days that I hate my job. I am currently involved in a soon to explode project where 50% of my resources are getting sick or are already sick because of too much stress they're getting from this project. For some reason, I am probably the only person who hasn't filed for sick leave since I started with this project. But I am really, really, really burned out already and this f*cking project is what's keeping me here in Manila. At times like this I seriously hate my boss for believing that I can save this project when everything is already beyond my control. All I can do is to watch and wait until the project explodes and the company gets sued or maybe just return the client's money and pay damages so we don't get sued. This project really sucks!

They say that your workplace is a reflection of yourself. My desktop is a reflection of my life....


Yup... my life is full of kalat.

My Dizizit Post

After 6 grueling hours...

I'm legally part of the working class of the United States of America. My L1B visa was approved and I'm flying soon.

Then reality hit me, is this good news or bad news?!?

Legally Pinoy

Just wanted to share that I got my non-pro driver's license yesterday. Finally! Well, even if I have acquired my license, it does not mean my dislike for driving already disappeared. I still prefer being the passenger boss.

Although I have gone through the process of getting my license the legal way, we still asked help from a padrino. It greatly speeded up the process! We finished the application process in a about half a day which normally takes 1-2 whole days here in manila. Of course I took the exam and proudly passed it. I think I perfected it! Haha.

Mom also accompanied me to NBI main office here in manila and applied for an NBI clearance. They don't release NBI clearances on the same day just like in the past. It now takes 3 working days to process and have to go back there to personally claim it. Stupid system! I have to take a leave again from work just to pick up that piece of paper. UP Manila used to be right beside NBI office but I never ever applied for a clearance until yesterday. Could have been easier if it was for renewal. Anyway, the whole process of getting a form, validating, paying, getting your picture taken and putting finger prints took about less than half an hour. I think it could have taken more than an hour if not for my maabilidad skills of finding the shortest cue to the counters for each step of the process. Hehe.

Isn't it funny that it's only now that I am completing my legal/government documents just when I am about to leave?!
