A Surprise #BirthdayGift

I was doing some reports in the office when I received a package delivery from  LBC.  I was very surprised as I wasn't expecting anything.  I was also  worried to open it because I don't know the sender but I had a feeling it  will be good.  My ever thoughtful and loving  sister, my Ate, found a way to  surprise me.  Her birthday is tomorrow and  my birthday  comes  a day after her.  Thank you very much Ate, I love it!  Sorry, I wasn't able to send you anything since I have been traveling (my excuse ha ha ha).  Happy birthday to us, I miss and love you!

I am back in the office for now as we are done auditing. I definitely love the traveling part of my new job.  I get to see places that I would have not traveled  yet if I did not change my line of work so I am very happy about that.  I will be 24 this weekend and I am so blessed to have been given  opportunities.  I will always be grateful to my sister and  her husband for  truly supporting me and sending me to college.  I  wouldn't be enjoying all of these without their help so thank you Kuya John and Ate.

Bonded with My Mom: What a Birthday Treat!

As I have mentioned in my previous posts, I am blessed to have been traveling  with my boss lately on my new job doing audits of  the office branches  around the country.  I was very happy when it was time to  audit the offices  in my region because I got to  visit my Mother for a brief period of time and we got to bond for few days before coming back here in Manila again.  I had to  re-schedule the  dates of my  trips and pay for it but  it's worth it.  
Ever since I came to Manila, I have been worrying about Mama .  Although my brother is there with her, I worried that she won't take care of her health and get sick again.  Now I feel how my sister feels being far away.  I know, my distance is nothing compared to Ate but with my line of work, I can't just  take off and visit  Mama anytime I want.  Ate asked me if I can visit  Mama on Mother's Day but I told her that I couldn't but I am so glad that I got the chance with  this job-related trip. 

I am now back in Manila and having a break from traveling. I am back to office and just taking my time to recuperate. I am surprised that I don't get car sick anymore. When I was a kid, I used to get car sick every time Mama take me somewhere.  I am so glad, I got over it, I think God is looking on me so thank you Papa Jesus!
The visit to my mother was a great advance birthday treat for me.  I want to take this opportunity to greet Ate a happy birthday.  She celebrates her birthday a day before mine.  Salamat  for all the help Ate, I would not be where I am now without you and Kuya.  I am grateful that you supported me financially and  emotionally during my college days.  Without your encouragement, I won't enjoy  what I have now so thank you and  may God bless you on your birthday and  always!

Traveling with my Job

It's been a while since I updated this blog. I have been busy with my new job and has been traveling with my supervisor.  I love that I get to visit places that I have never been to before.   My current job may not pay as much as the former job that I had but it is okay.  My boss is really nice and I get to go travel.  

My new job involves auditing regional offices.We went to Pangasinan, Baguio, and next week I will be in Bicol region. I am planning to see my Mom before I go back to Manila.
I am surprised that I haven't been car sick with all the traveling. I used to get car sickness every time I go somewhere when I was a kid. I guess I outgrew it finally and I am so glad.
I never thought that I could survive living here in Manila but I took the leap of faith and moved here because I love my new job, it gave me new experiences and I realized some of the strengths that I didn't think I have in me.  
 I could not have done it alone though, thanks to my boyfriend who have there for me.

I am very thankful to Lord Almighty for giving me the courage to take ion this new stage in my life and for making me a strong woman everyday. Thanks to my Ate too for  encouraging me every step of the way.  Without her and Kuya's support, I would not be  where I am now so I am  super blessed.  I am still praying that Mama would  like to come here and live with me but I understand too why she does not want to.  All  I can do is to support her financially and pray for her safety every single day.

New Job, New Challenges, New Goals

2017 has been busy for me. It started with a stressful situation,  my mother got sick and hospitalized.  I feel very bad that she is living alone in our home but she does not like the idea of living with me in Manila.  I went and visited her for a brief period of time during the holiday break and it breaks my heart to see her suffering.  I just don't understand why she doesn't want to leave that place..  I  am still hoping that she would  be able to turn around on this idea and agree to live with me instead of staying in our home.

I also started this year with a new job.  I still work in TESDA  but I am now working at a new department.  My former position paid  bigger but I was always stressed out because of my boss.  I asked my sister for some advice and she told me to follow what my heart tells me.  I was  battling between higher pay with a boss I don't really get  along well or lesser pay but with  a very good working relationship with other employees.  I chose the latter even though I like the higher pay but I am now happier and  less stressed with my new position.

I am saving  some  money every pay because I am planning to enroll in a master's degree.  I finally passed the licensure exam for teachers but I am still looking for a school where I can teach.  I hope that I can achieve this goals in the near future.

Third Time a Charm

After some grueling reviews, sleepless nights, and  tears shed, I finally passed on the third  time of taking the Licensure Exam for Teachers.  The first and second time, I reviewed very hard and was disappointed that I did not pass.  After that, I was done, I doubted my abilities of becoming a teacher but my sister told me to keep trying and  to give it a try one more time.  Before deciding to go to Manila, I  took the exam again but this time, I did not  study and wasn't expecting anything and  what a great surprise, I passed!  Third time is a charm I guess, thanks be to God and to those who believe in me.  I am finally a licensed teacher.

After some temporary jobs that I got in Bicol  after graduation, I decided to  go to Manila  to see if there's some good opportunities there for me.  It is so hard to find a job here in my country.  Even though you are qualified for a position, there is no available job to apply for.  My sister Rossel told me  that her husband might help me out because he works in TESDA that's why I went here.  So far, I have applied for two companies and still waiting  for their decision.

For now, I am  spending some quality time with my nieces and nephews while I am still waiting for  the  companies I applied for to call me back.  I actually interviewed for one and got accepted but  it was like a networking job so I did not forgo with it.  

If only job opportunities  is good here in the Philippines, it wouldn't be  so hard.  No wonder a lot of people are going out of the country to work abroad.  I am actually thinking of applying  abroad but I don't know yet.

I went home in the province with my sister Rossel and visited Mama one more time  while I don't have a job yet.  I have been encouraging Mama to go with me but so far, she doesn't want to leave our place.  I love the simplicity of living in the province but I feel depressed when I go there.  There's nothing there productively.  It is not just a place for me.  My sister Rose really inspired me to  spread my wings and take chances.  

I want to   thank my  brother-in-law John and my sister Rose for not giving up on me, for their  continued support and encouragement. Without them, I couldn't have gone to college on my own.  They are my biggest support system not just financially but emotionally as well, so thanks you very much Ate and Kuya, I love you both!
