Changes: The Result

As per my last post, I had to wait for a while before a verdict came out and I was right - I will be transferred to the technical support account. Is it a bad thing? I think not. I will be transferred to a technical account but it will be on the morning shift... YAHOO! 7am - 4pm! Can it get any better than that?! It's like I'm gonna be working in a government office ("(-.-)")

I think this is a blessing in disguise. I used to think that bad things happen to good people but in this case I'm starting to think that good things happen to good people as well. And YES - I think of myself as a good person :p

I have been in the morning shift for more or less a month already and all I can say is that the morning shift ROCKS! Not to mention that I have a very kind, understanding and beautiful supervisor. My life just seems to be perfect so far.

5:30 AM, just got off from my shift. Although I only had 2 calls tonight, it was still stressful due to the news that was given to us - the team members might get reshuffled.

Currently I'm working on a billing account. But because of the changes in the account, it has been decided that members of the team will be reshuffled and some will even be put under the dreaded technical support account. The criteria for who will be transferred will be based solely on the schedule adherence of each call center agent. And given my status when it comes to schedule adherence, I'm more or less sure that I will be one of the people who will be put to the technical support account.

You could say that the news is not-that-good and to be honest, I can handle this kind of change. What eating me up right now is that they won't have a decision not until 3 to 4 weeks from now.

Well, I just have to sing a song by Bob Marley.... ♫♪♫ I don't wanna wait in vain... ♫♪♫

Random Thought: Losing Weight

I don't care if it is the alcohol in my head talking right now but I want to be fit. I'm going to lose weight and I have made up my mind.

I couldn't say that my quest to lower down my weight has been an epic journey. I usually set my mind to losing weight but I've never EVER completed it. Every time I say that I'm going to lose weight, I usually raise the white flag after a few days --- food is synonymous to temptation (and the devil) --- you just can't resist it.

I'm not really sure that I'll be able to pull it off this time but I just want to say that I want to get fit. Whether it becomes a reality or not, I'm not really sure. But right here, right now, I'm thinking of losing some of this unwanted weight.... by hook or by crook.

Oxis International

We all have heard of stories about the fountain of youth. A flowing water that with one sip, a person can be young again. This has been a lifelong pursuit by fictitious, as well as, real people throughout history. Has it ever been found? I'm not really sure.

However today, through different studies and researches, it has been found out that antioxidants can slow down the aging process by getting rid of free radicals from the body. I guess it would safe to call them anti aging molecules and one of the most common example of this would be glutathione.

In the modern world, the most common aging factor would be the not-so-good effects of the oxidative stress. This type of stress can take a toll on the body leaving it's natural defenses and antioxidants unable to function properly thus compromosing health.

As of the moment, there is one company that focuses in the research and development of products that could battle the harmful effects of oxidative stress - Oxis International. It is a company that has been developing and out-licensing products for pharma companies and biotech companies. Their primary products put emphasis and incorporate the use of the super antioxidant called L-­Ergothioneine also known by as ERGO.

Aside from the usual products that they offer to consumers, Oxis is providing opportunities to those who want to invest in the research and development of ERGO products. Oxis is offering penny stocks to interested investors.

Super Ultramagnetic Mega To The Max To The Nth Power Overbreak

This happened 2 weeks ago. I don't what was with that day why most people didn't seem to have any energy for work. I know I don't really have that much energy and enthusiasm when it comes to work but it was different that day.

I'm not really a fan of the sleeping lounge in the office. I've never used it before... not even once. But the day that this incident happened, my energy was so low that I can hear the sleeping lounge calling to me. It was calling to me with a tone of familiarity... as if it was a friend that I haven't seen for a very long time.

I took my lunch break (1 hour) and decided to succumb to the call of the lounge. 1... 2... 3... lights out. It happened so fast. As soon as laid down on the lower bunk, it didn't take a minute before my systems shut down. Everything was black. The next thing I knew, somebody was waking me up. It was my supervisor. I thought he was going to be mad but I guess he understood. He himself was so low that day that he was also in the lounge earlier that shift.

When I went back to the floor and opened my computer. Lo and behold! There it was:

I have edited this picture already for security purposes. ^-^

This may not be the worst overbreak for this account but this is a first for me. And another thing that's funny about this is that the person above me on that picture was a teammate of mine and was my bunkmate in the sleeping lounge. I told you it was a lazy day.

I Tried...

Philippine election 2010 sucked!... big time!

My duty ended 5 am today and I intended to go directly to the precinct where I was assigned so I could cast my vote. Alas! When I arrived 10 minutes shy of 7 am there were already a lot of people there. The facilitators had started giving out priority numbers which is quite new to me 'cuz this was not the case during the last election.

Sleepy and tired from the previous night, I decided that I just get a number, go home, rest and come back later to vote.

I went back to my precinct around 5 pm and the number of people, I think, doubled. There were also long lines for every classroom and around me were angry and irritated people. When I tried to find out what number they were serving, I still needed to wait for 200+ more people to finish voting.

Given that I still had a duty that night at 8 pm, I decided to just go home.

I really wanted to vote because I wanted to take advantage of this state given right and privilege. But because of the voting process this Philippine elections 2010, I wasn't able to. Hopefully next elections, the system and the process for voting will be more effective. But for this election, all I can say is, at least I tried...

I'm Depressed

Talk about a depressing post. Baby Bear from Baby Bear Diaries linked his latest post to me. It's entitled Do We Have The Right To Complain?. It wasn't really the content of the post that made me depressed because I agree with whast he wrote - compared to other people, we really are fortunate. (Although I would like to present a rebuttal, I think I would just do that another day to make way for my feeling of depression.) What made me feel the way I felt was this picture:

The Vulture, a bird who feeds on carcasses, was waiting for this child to die. I have read a small article about this picture before. This child was crawling his way to a site where he may be able to get food. The photographer took this picture then left not knowing what happened to this child. A few months later, it was reported that the photographer took his own life due to depression. One may say, not knowing what happened to the child, brought him to kill himself.
