"anything could happen." -ellie goulding
Ok so i resigned and now i’m in eperformax here in makati and i’m back to being a trainee. It sucks to being a trainee again, plus the fact that we have to eat in mang inasal and spend hundreds of pesos for lunch. Why MANG INASAL? Their upuans are so sakit sa puwet pa! tsk. There are jolly-jeeps and backdonalds but it’s so hot during lunch so nvm.
Anyway i’m in this super big class— there’s only 7 of us. And 5 of them have CC experience. i have 3 months, and the other one claims to be a virgin. Ok CC virgin he is.
What i can’t believe is that he sure knows a lot of things about the call center world. I was a CC virgin once and i dint know a lot of things. I dint have the slightest idea of what a CSR does. All i knew then was we answer calls then help callers with their problems. But he doesn’t just know that. He knows about about building rapport, the proper way of placing a caller on hold, etc. And earlier today, he mentioned something about asking for permission when we place them on hold. I mean, during my first few weeks (before), i really dint have any idea. As in blanko.
Or maybe wala talaga siyang experience. Sadyang nag research lang talaga siya kaya marami syang alam. Para prepared siya. what i should have done before. :3
#conquer2 is just so addictive. never gets old. well at least, for me. #mmorpg #conqueronline #game
the worst feeling in the world is not when you’re being ignored. it’s also not when you’re najejebs na but you’re still busy taking in calls so you have to wait for the call to end for you to jebs na. The worst feeling in the world is not when you fail a major subject. That’s normal! It’s also not when you get dumped. It’s also normal!
The worst feeling is when you don’t have internet connection and you don’t know if you lost or gained followers, if someone added you as a friend on facebook, if someone messaged you, what happened to your cyber friends or what happened na to the person you have been stalking for quite some time. Kung may bago na ba siyang nilalandi after di ka na nagparamdam. diba? diba?
So i haven’t blogged for months now. Well, blame my schedule. I had to sleep the whole day and stay awake from 11 pm to 9 am. And it’s been like this for a month now. And i’m not complaining. Well maybe i am, i don’t know. But i can’t complain. I’m being paid so i should be happy.
Well anyway, i’m just writing about how i spent the last day of 2013. It’s like being asked by my teacher to write a paragraph or two about “how i spent my christmas vacation” only this time, nobody asked me to write and i’m not being graded about how i write.
Ok to start with, i spent the last day of 2013 alone, because my sis had to go with her boyfriend to quezon. I was left alone because i had work. Sick as it may sound, but it’s great because of double pay!
The thing is, i wasn’t able to go to work because as early as 8:30 pm or around 9 pm, wala nang bumabyaheng jeep (yes, it’s tagalog. How do i translate that in english? no more jeeps are making byahe? it’s not even english.) And there were no taxis available pa. Plus, people were too excited to paputok. Ugh, can they not wait for 12 midnight to paputok? they should at least consider the fact that there are few people who are scared of paputoks—-and one of them is me.
So i just went home (rode a tricycle pa kahit walking distance lang naman ang sakayan sa apartment) kasi nga, excited ang mga tao magpaputok. When i went home, i just watched harry potter and the goblet of fire. then i went to sleep. No, i tried to sleep. There was this woman making chika to the other woman, outside. And i can hear her voice from the outside. If i’m not mistaken, she started babbling about things around 11 am, before the paputoks and when i woke up at 4 am, she was still outside, making chika pa din.
She wasn’t the only annoying person that time. There are a lot of stupid girls outside, i don’t know if they’re stupid or they just wanted attention. I mean, why the hell would they try to paputok if they would just scream for ten seconds as if they’re scared of the paputok? I was just exaggerating pero nakakainis ah. maingay na nga ang mga paputok, maingay pa sila. distorbo sa panonood ng movie.
And the worst part is when it was already 7 in the morning. The person who made chika the whole madaling araw suddenly exploded. I heard she was yelling at someone for calling her a puta. But she admitted that she really is a puta, and that she is just hurt that the person whom she treated as her father would call her puta. She was really noisy, and she banged pa the door ha. EARLY IN THE MORNING. And she was like, putang ina, putang ina! pardon the language. i was supposed to put it in english because it sounds better but i don’t know how to translate “putang ina” in english. It’s not “son of a bitch” because she said putang ina. and it’s not “mother bitch” either. haaaay. why is tagalog so hard?
Anyway, i wanted to go outside and make her shut the fvck up but i didn’t because i was such a very good boy. lol, kidding. i was scared because she was yelling and she was like very angry. And i thought she had a deadly weapon and i value my life which is why i decided to not go out while she was being a crazy woman.
That’s it. Many might think that i had the most boring first day of 2014, nothing special. But then again, a special day is when something extraordinary happens. However, in my case, it was special, only on the negative side.

i know i haven’t been active ever since i went here in Makati. That’s because i didn’t have time for tumblr because i was just hired. I was busy with the 2-week training for CCT and i was busy with the requirements. yes, i work in a call center here. It may not be in line with my field of study but it’s better compared to my online work before.
Anyway, i passed the CCT. And guess what, i topped our class. (I have never topped my class before, ok) I nailed it, yo yo yo! I didn’t even expect it because i was bad during the validation test and i wasn’t that great during the final mock call. I mean, i never really liked answering phone calls. Everytime someone would call me, it’s either i would not answer or i would reject the call. During the practice, i was really nervous but it turned out good.
Okay so i passed the CCT. Starting on Monday, i’ll have to report from 9PM to 6AM. I don’t know if i should be happy about it because it will mean a higher pay or if i should be worried because i won’t be able to sleep at night.
