Wow. I haven’t been really writing (blogging) lately. After the thesis, I just didn’t feel like blogging for a while. I basically spent much of my time playing a game—Luna Online. It got me hooked for a while (about two months) before the novelty wore off. I mean, I still like playing, but the leveling speed isn’t fast at my current level.  My character requires sixteen (yes, 1-6) hours to level up, so I figured I shouldn’t play too often now. I just feel so…. tired and useless when I play all day.

Which reminds me the purpose of this entry. Well, I just got a job—an apprenticeship in an architectural firm in Pasig. It’s a small firm, around 10 employees/summer interns; and the office is small and cozy. I feel quite excited for work (although the stipend disappointed me), since the firm focuses on residential projects. I’ve always wanted to start working on residentials. XD

I was a little depressed earlier today when my aunt called. She wanted me to meet a friend/acquaintance of her, who was involved in construction/architecture, or something like that. My aunt said that the firm was a big one, but they had foreign contacts (German, Chinese, etc.), so she figured it would be a good opportunity for me. Sadly, I had to reject that offer since I already said “yes” for my new work. The principal architect had mentioned that many had applied for their firm, but none (so far) had taken up their offer of apprenticeship. I didn’t want to disappoint the architect by backing out of my “promise” to show up next week Thursday. Besides, the principal already introduced me to the staff, who all seem nice. Another reason why I rejected the offer was that I didn’t want to end up like my sister, who had difficulty (perhaps hesitant would be a better word) in resigning from her work because her (previous) boss was an acquaintance of our aunt. I know my aunt means well, but I don’t want to end up staying in a company where I’m not satisfied or happy with what I do. But anyway, I did explain to my aunt why I don’t want to even try meeting up with her friend, and she’s fine with that. I simply told her that I’m just starting out, so I want to gain experience in the small firm. If I don’t like it, then that’s the time I’ll take on her offer (if it still stands by then XD).

So, technically, since I’m to start next week Thursday (because I’ll  be away for camp on Monday till Wednesday), there’s no vacation for me anymore. The only vacation trip that I’ll be taking would be next week’s Powercamp, and after that I’ll prolly be working nonstop. Weekends are reserved for rest and choir rehearsal. Maybe I should really put my Starbucks planner to good use and get myself (and my life) organized.
