I'm just glad that 2010 will be over in a few hours.

This year has been full of highs and lows. But come to think of it, all years are like that no? Hmmm. Let's just say then that this year the highs and lows are extra higher and extra lower compared to the previous years.

Extra lows. I don't think I need to talk about this. It's no secret what I've been through, what we've been through. It was tough. The naive in me never imagined that it's possible for me to be a part stuffs I only hear or read about. But am glad that I was able to outwit, outplay, outlast that messy situation. I was scathed but not jaded.

Extra highs. This I should talk about. First, I finished college. Not everyone gets to finish college. After six long years, I walked the ceremony stage and got hold of a rolled bond paper tied with a ribbon that we call diploma.

Second, I got a job. A good job at that. I'm lucky to have landed a job that is what I was molded for when in school. I'm really satisfied with what I'm doing and I look forward in coming to work everyday. Let's just not talk about the pay. Hehe.

Third, the universe conspired and gave me this guy who is teaching me how to love and trust again. I haven't mastered the lesson yet. From time to time I lose grip but he never lets go and instead holds my hands tighter. Every day I learn and I get to be a better Pipo.

I think I'm ready for 2011.

Good job

My boss forwarded the email from HR reminding him that my probationary employment status will end late January of 2011 and that he should submit necessary documents should he decide to make me a regular employee. Of course he wants me to stay so he asked my supervisor to prepare the documents and draft a recommendation letter.

But how come he didn't asked me first if I want to stay? Hmmmm.

Truth is, I want to stay. I'm enjoying my job and I look forward to coming to work every weekday. Saturday not much.

There are just two things I don't like about my job. First, the busted AC. Second, the pay. The pay is meeh.

I can stand the busted AC. I can stand the pay too if not for the fact that I'm going back to school for my masterals degree late 2011 or early 2012.

One of the perks of having no siblings is that my Mom is willing to shoulder all expenses when I go back to school, allowance included. But but but I don't want that. It took me six years to finish my undergraduate degree. I want my Mom to spend the money she earns on her own. Yeah. Pride much.

But quitting my job won't do any good either. I need to find a new job before I quit the one I have now. And finding a job is haaaard. Especially on my field. And I find one, I'm pretty sure the pay will be meeh too. I don't have much under my belt to boast yet.

So yeah I'll prolly sign the new contract.

Congrats, Pipo!
