It’s been more than a month since I moved to my place in the Metro. I’m less than 15 minutes away from the office, far beyond what I used to travel when I still go home daily. I used to spend one to two hours travel time commuting ever since I began working, and since I have experienced the convenience of living near my work place, I’m not sure if I’m ever gonna want to leave that life again.
Living near my workplace has made me realize a lot of things, and I’m going to share five of them here. 🙂
I swear I’m trying to look at the bright side despite the unlucky circumstance I’ve faced today.
I welcomed Monday with a smile and with a work mode attitude because I hate being gloomy on a Monday, it feels like I’m starting the week wrong. This morning, when I arrived at the office, I felt something weird in my right eye. I checked it on the mirror and saw that my contact lens was already out of place and that it was already folded down to my eyeballs. I laughed it off, because fine, that’s what you get when you take the risk of taking a nap when you’re wearing your additional set of eyes.
It’s been awhile since I last made a blog update. I’ve been really busy last month because of work-related projects and because it was holiday season. I was too lazy to write a year-ender so I’ve been sharing my life updates through Twitter and Instagram since they’re the easiest micro-blogging socmeds that exist.
This doesn’t need a story… But hey, look! After six months of being under the probationary status, I am now a regular employee as a Finance Analyst for Investments at the Inquirer Group of Companies, effective July 4, 2016!
It’s amazing that a lot of wonderful things are happening in the second half of 2016. Looking forward for more!
Thank You, Good Lord! Please always guide me and please help me do well in all my tasks, projects and deliverables. May You help me exceed their expectations and make them feel that I am worthy of this position. Thank You for blessing me with a good boss and mentor. Thank You for giving me a family-like environment to work with. I will always be thankful!
Today marks my first month as Finance Analyst of the Investments Department of Inquirer Group of Companies. So far, the past month had been great. I did few things for the first time, and I’m glad that I am able to unlock my potentials with the tasks at hand. My duties and responsibilities are far way different from my previous job, but I am very much enjoying things now. There’s so much more to learn, and I am glad that I get to discover new things every day.
Here’s a photo dump of my first month!
