I applied for a DSL line last week and I still have to wait for the installation. It's really difficult to work at home without an internet. Actually, I do have internet access at home but it's dial-up and it's difficult to find a place to work near a phone line. Am currently doing this in school (during class. Hehe)
I can't wait for this month to be over. It's our finals in a couple of weeks and I still have 4 papers due. I hope our finals won't be as tough.
We had our GA yesterday where the interim results of the company's performance was announced. I still doubt the good stuff that they played up in the presentations. I just hope that we end the year at a good note. Our performance bonus highly depends on it.
To prepare for our presentation, I was tasked (together with our division secretary), to head off to Divisoria to find the costumes needed for our performers. It was not exactly a walk in the park. We had to commute and it was raining! Plus, we had to lug around four heavy plastic bags. My companion was also not a happy camper. She's not much into walking and was already complaining after an hour or two of walking around the "malls". I had to leave her at McDonald's while I went around looking for our items in the list.
When we got back to the office, my manager was patiently waiting for me so we can finish the powerpoint presentation for the arrival of a foreign guest. I was so drained by the end of the day.
Our efforts paid off though. We won the cheering competition (not after we were roped to perform with the dancers. At least there were a lot of us dancing and jumping onstage). The cash prize was not much but it gave us bragging rights. Wonder how our Christmas presentation will turn out (as the host of yesterday's event said, "Masyado nating kina-career ang mga Christmas presentations)?
Here are BEFORE and AFTER pictures of my room.
This is what my room looked like when I first moved. Note the boxes on the left side of the room.
This is what my room looks like now. The picture is kinda dark since it was night. I'll post more detailed pictures next time.
The house is Spanish style, but it's relatively new. The lot and old house was actually owned by my grandparents but my aunt and her husband bought the lot and house, demolished the old house (which was built in the 1970's) and built a new one which is really admired by many. I know I took pictures of it before but I can't find it right now. I'll post pictures next time.
