System Time: 9:31 AM spacing out again.. been working (yep, i am..although only half-heartedly) for an hour.. i'm stuck again with my codes.. i began to think if i really want this kind of work..but my bond's still for more than a year so i guess i have no choice but to go to work.. (unless i had 240,000!)
..speaking of money.. i am SO broke.. i owe my sister 2500 bucks.. plus my monthly cable fee, plus my monthly installment for my ps2, PLUS my monthly installment for my new phone.. WAAAAAAAH. *paging, paging: ten² and erlyn.. your share for cherry's gift will be GREATLY appreciated* ..the only reason why i can't send momi a simpack 'cause i don't have the money to buy one! huhuhu! project incentive's only given every 15th so i can't expect money coming from that.. i've been working for almost 2 years and i don't have any savings.. i only save when i want to buy something.. so when i do buy it, i've got no money left! i'm pathetic. *tsk tsk*

System Time: 3:38 PM
..i love the smell of body shop's tobacco flower.. (syempre meh tobacco parin).. but really,ang bango talaga.. ehehe.. parang trademark perfume ko na nguh siya eh.. naalala na ako ng mga officemates ko pag nakakaamoy daw sila ng ganon.. haha, in short.. meh amoy ako, LOL!

System Time: 11:06 AM a new phoneeeeee wehehe. it's not as fancy (or expensive) as other MMS capable phones but it'll do.. got a Sony Ericsson T68i.. actually.. when it was first launched in the market, i kinda liked it already but i didn't have the money at that time.. now the price is almost half of the original.. so i'm glad i waited.. :) my application for Addict mobile didn't push thru.. 'cause they kept on asking additional requirements.. kainish.. only reason why i wanted to have an addict plan 'cause i wanted the smart amazing phone.. eh kaurat kasi kung ano ano puh hinihingi nila.. hmpft. so decided to just buy a cheaper phone..still am adapting with the new menu..but at least this phone's pocket-able. a bit of bad news.. my other officemates (the batch after us) are now assigned in different clients.. awww.. will miss them.. especially during break time 'cause we usually eat together (lol!).. most of them are at PLDT, others at Nestle..

System Time: 1:05 PM
*beritayt hug for ate cha* hayyy. i know d feeling.. and you're not alone.. in life, you'll know who your true friends are.. we haven't met.. we haven't seen each other.. but i consider you as one of my truest friends.. being friends doesn't mean that you have to go out or do things together.. it's knowing that one deeply cares for you and will be there for you in whatever way possible.. *miss yu ate cha*

System Time: 1:30 PM
..gaah. @_@ am sleypi again.. so what else is new.. haay.

..reading some e-mails i saved in the notepad..
one was about "natural highs".. there are 50 items in the list.. but here are my favorites..

1. Laughing so hard your face hurts.
2. Hearing your favorite song on the radio.
3. Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
4. A long distance phone call. <--hehe
5. Finding a 20 note in your coat from last winter. <-- or in my case, found 500 php in my old wallet that i haven't used for 2 yrs..
6. Laughing at an inside joke.
7. Friends.
8. Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep.
9. Road trips with friends.
10. Watching the expression on someone's face as they open a much desired
present from you

System Time: 3:01 PM
..hehe.. texting my officemates who are in PLDT.. we have this sort of morning ritual.. we read each other's horoscopes found in Libre, a free magazine distributed in MRT stations.. since they're not here.. (plus we're either bored/have nothing to do or in my case, delaying my workload, hehe) i'm texting them their horoscopes.. lol! at least it gave me the chance to break-in my phone..

System Time: 4:41 PM
..wahaha. lakas ng ulan.

System Time: 5:03 PM
..ok, ok.. so am not working.. i swear i'll do this tomorrow.. nay.. i'll finish this.. maybe it's the knowledge that my deadline's still tomorrow and it looks like i could finish it that distracts me in actually coding today.. plus i keep on thinking on how i'm going to go home later with the heavy rain and all..

System Time: 5:14 PM
..damn time isn't moving..

System Time: 5:38 PM <--hu-hum..
..haven't sent momi's letter yet.. i'll probably do it this week.. still hafto buy him a prepaid sim.. hehe.. gip kuuu.. bat buh..

System Time: 8:33 AM
..wataway to start the morning, crying inside our car while my dad lectures me on schedules, my so-called lack of concern for them, and my over-all irresponsibility.. i cried quietly of course..

..i fully understand ALL of the stuff he said.. that it's given that our house is far so i should know that i've got to leave someplace earlier than the others.. i did just that.. i was the FIRST one to leave Harbie's house.. i arrived at our house at 11:30pm.. we have this sort of unwritten rule that going home anytime after 10 pm already qualifies me for character degradation by my loving parents... hay. mali na kung mali.. but what really exasperates me is when my father tells me that i frequently go home late and that i keep on joining every single affair/party that my friends have.. wala daw ako pinapalampas.. WHICH IS PURE FICTION and totally unfair. there are times when i won't even attempt to ask for my parents' permission because i know they wouldn't allow me even if i cried tears of blood and held a one-man hunger strike.. i ALWAYS try to fulfill that unreasonable, too-early-even-for-nuns 10 pm curfew.. *sighs* one thing i've learned from all this is to just shut up and bear it. trust me, winning an argument over your parents is as rare as a one-time RPG compilation with zero errors.

System Time: 3:23 PM
..uh-oh.. Ma'am M's having her roll-call again.. she usually does this when she needs to know if we're following the programming schedules and how fast (or slow) we're finishing our forms..

System Time: 3:36 PM
..whew.. she didn't ask this time how long it took me to finish a certain form.. good thing cause i wouldn't know what to say.. lol! my forms usually have some new specs, changes, etc. and i don't keep tabs on how many days i have already spent on such modifications.. she just asked me what forms i already finished and what form i'm currently doing now..

gaah. remembered i haven't filed my leave yet. i'll be going to DFA and LTO tomorrow. (with the same reasons as to why people go to such places)


System Time: 3:59 PM
..submitted my leave form..Ma'am Q signed it almost immediately ('cause she's been the one telling me to get my passport already).. no work tomorrow, Hurrah! will watch The Recruit later at home to celebrate, hehe.

System Time: 4:43 PM
..will meet eboy later at Megamall to follow up my application for Addict Mobile at Smart.. (yeah.. i'll make the 10 pm curfew) also will find a digital version of Foto-Gulat to have my picture taken for my passport application.. i don't know if there's a DigiFoto booth in Megamall.. have seen lots of such booth in Glorietta.. hmm.. hope i could find one later..

System Time: 5:28 PM
..yesterday at Harbie's house.. all (except for Eboy) of my ISM barkada was there.. and all of them came with their bfs.. am not the envious type..(really, am not..) but at that time.. i just couldn't help it.. and makes me kinda re-evaluate my stand on long-distance relationships.. i mean, he's not there when you need him.. no matter how many the e-mails sent, text messages received,..nothing beats a real hug. especially at times when you need it the most. sometimes, i feel that being single is far better than being in a LDR. you're not putting your life on hold for something that has actually no assurance. if it's a business, you're investing all your time, money, effort on a proposal you're not even sure will be profitable. but that's life, perce. a gamble, full of risks.. and that's ultimately what i'm doing. i'm holding on to him, risking losing everything in the end. but even if i did walk away with nothing, at least i had the courage to realize my Impossible Love. (am sooo influenced by Veronika Decides to Die)

but what if.. i win? the stuff that we most appreciate and take care of are the ones that have been the most difficult to attain.

System Time: 3:20 PM
.. have graduated from the madir-f*cking RMReceipt form.. Hurrah! am now moving on to the RmTransfer form.. it's deadline is on the 27th.. plenty of time for me to finish it.. just hope it's uncomplicated as it looks.. if i learned something in programming.. it's that looks can be deceiving.. a pretty simple looking form can have a hell of a validation, or even a cry-ka-na-lang computation.. hmm..

System Time: 5:50 PM
..accomplished sooo much today. i feel like a real employee, working hard for the pay.. (LOL!!!) ..
..anywayz.. before i delude myself.. am going to Harbie's house after work.. it's their fiesta plus house-blessing today.. i know it'll be kinda late but i promised my dad i'll leave at around 8:30 pm..
..will meet Ria at Boni Station.. then we'll meet her bf, cZed somewhere.. then we'll proceed to Harbie's house..

System Time: 6:01 PM
..will post this blog now.. bye all!!
still have 8 minutes before connection gets cut off.. hmm..

actually.. am just browsing a few sites that were made by my chat friends..
and i found out something.. my site for james blanco has disappeared.. waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh! good thing i still have it in my PC at home..
i keep on forgetting to go to the site once in a while for it not to be removed by the free server.. i haven't finished it yet.. ayan, nawala tuloy. demmit.

System Time: 11:15 AM momi's new entry in my old gb.. katuwa :) lessened the crappiness of a monday morning.. had a lot of different dreams last night but i could only recall a few.. about work.. my officemates... my family... though i can't remember the "story" as to what they were doing in my dream... even the book i've just finished reading was in my dreams.. (Veronika decides to Die by Paulo Coelho)..
..have started reading another one of his books.. The Pilgrimage..

System Time: 1:09 PM horoscope said "tapusin mo na kasi para matapos na" .. lol! ok, then. better get to work.

System Time: 1:22 PM
..gaah. can't think. the moment i start thinking my eyelids get heavy and i begin dozing off. hay.. i even slept early last night.. just around 11 pm after watching Just Married (newly-bought pirated DVD hehe).. movie was ok.. had its funny moments.. plus Ashton's sort-of cute in his own, lanky way.

System Time: 9:33 AM
..have finished two of my forms.. am now working on my form that was supposed to be started yesterday... so i'm just a day behind my schedule.. *whew* not so bad.. especially if i finish this one on the designated deadline.. form looks similar to the previous form so i decided to blog first before i start..

have bought a new ps2 game.. Clock Tower 3.. scary shit.. am just in the first stage and already am screaming while playing, lol! kakakaba kasiii..especially when i was in the Tailor shop and this big guy with a sledge hammer runs after Alyssa (the character i'm controlling).. it's funny 'cause when Alyssa's panic meter moves up.. her movements are sluggish and the screen starts to look fuzzy.. i wanted to play it again last night but i couldn't do it alone.. waahaha. i might spook myself. lol.

System Time: 10:30 AM
..ok.. still not in the mood.. but i'll REALLY try to continue working after a few minutes..

System Time: 11:34 AM

changing our course.

System Time: 1:07 PM
..gotta get some work done.. BeRightBack

System Time: 5:19 PM
..i'm finished alreadyyy! well.. i think i am with my "programmer's test".. i call it that 'cause usually, a programmer's test activity varies from that of a QA/QC specialist.. 'cause i'm testing something that i've created so i'm kinda entering values which i know my program could handle/validate..unlike that of a QA specialist, testing's his job so he has to be especially good at it, thinking of different possible scenarios that could happen in a form. my deadline is still on Monday..more than enough time for me to be QAspecialist-like.. the meantime.. i'm just waiting for 6 pm.. i might go to Megamall after work so that i could get an application form for an Addict Mobile plan at the Smart Tel. Center.. have decided to opt for the Smart Amazing Phone instead of a Nokia 3650,.. main reason is that the SmartPhone has Windows Media player, ergo, i could play, 3650 has a really weird keypad.. all my previous texting instincts will go to waste, lol.. my kabarkada from Precom, ten-ten, has that phone.. and i was just fucking staring at the keypad looking for a certain letter before i could press anything and start texting..

System Time: 5:38 PM
..bwahaha. had a major-boo² in one of my forms.. forgot to filter the records.. i just had to add something in my code but still, dyahe sa SA ko, hehe.

System Time: 5:44 PM getting paranoid everytime Sir Dennis (my SA) leaves their Room (or Aquarium, as we call it).. i keep on expecting him to tell me another bug/error with my form.. wahaha.

System Time: 4:11 PM
..think i listened to 3 smallville episodes here at the office today.. listened because i could only take a peek once in a while when i felt that it was safe to do so.. i've got 4 superiors and i don't want to get caught watching a video file during office hours.. i guess you could say that i've done some pretty minimal office work's a friday, and it's sooo hard to concentrate on anything.. even felt a little bummed out cause one of the SAs approached me and told me that he'll be giving a couple of my assigned forms to somebody else.. he gave me some lame excuse that he'll be replacing them with forms already similar to what i'm doing now.. but i'm sure he thinks that i'm not competent enough to do difficult ones.. hay. Whatever. i know i should feel challenged and prove my worth but i'm just not in the mood to be anyone's favorite right now. i just wanna log out and go to the mall and meet eboy and watch a movie.

..(aside from waiting for 5 pm).. currently listening to my Incubus and Coldplay mp3s..

iiiiiiiiiiiiiii wishhhhhhh you were heeerrreee


..i'm really keen on replacing my no-resale-value gd93 phone.. i'm assessing on my mind if i could afford to have a 1335 post-paid plan in Smart. they're offering the SmartPhone free if you have that plan for 24 months. it's a pretty cool phone.. it's Microsoft powered tri-band handset, colored LCD with a clip-on digital camera. but what really interests me is its capability to play mp3s. memory's only 32 mb but there's an expansion slot up to 512 mb.. plus it's not bulky unlike the other mp3-player-cellphones that looks like a Surf Jumbo bar.. i'm not a bag person so it's really important for me that i could put my phone in my pocket..

..still 30 minutes to go.. i'm trying to convince Eboy thru text to watch Xerex (LoL) instead of X-men2 ..haven't told her that i've already watched it with my sister 'cause i was the one who invited her to see X2 with me.. wehehe..fatay. i guess seeing the movie twice isn't that insupportable.. hmm.. i'd be able to see Pyro again hehe.

ei. didn't realize that i've got Dj sammy's Heaven in my mp3 play list..

Now nothing can change what you mean to me
There's a lot that I could say
But just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

Baby you're all that I want
When you're lying here in my arms
I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven
And lovin' is all that I need
And I'm finally there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see,
We're in heaven momi's gb entry last night.. (or was it the other night..) i'm so happy to hear from him.. i miss him terribly. :(

shit. i can't think straight. new specifications were given to me for an old form.. and i'm starting to get a headache 'cause i've been thinking and thinking how i would be able to meet the new requirements. it's so damn difficult and confusing.

System Time: 5:38 PM
''with PO Nbr

System Time: 8:53 AM
..waahaha. according to my other officemates, Ma'am V's nerves had been on the edge since Friday. i think we're supposed to submit Reference forms and Reports on that day and many of the said forms/reports had numerous errors. (including mine) the SAs were pressured by Ma'am V, and in turn, the programmers were pressured by the SAs to finish them. they stayed (SAs and programmers) until late Friday evening, and even went to work the next day. they only got to contact Koji..they couldn't get a hold on chipper.. whereas i was probably wallowing away in Sagada at that moment. couldn't help but feel a little bit guilty and incompetent because Vic (one of the SAs) said that Jhoneil (my SA) said that he had a difficult time modifying some of my codes. Jhoneil still hasn't shown up today, so i still have no IDEA what sort of changes do i have to do on my past Forms.
