The sad thing about today was I missed my roommate Lotlot's wedding to Jerkie. I promised that I was going to attend but the opportunity of having another job came knocking at my door about a month after I said yes. Sigh, another missed opportunity to bond with my Avoue batchmates. But I still have 3 roommates who aren't married yet so hopefully I can finally keep my promise of attending at least one Avoue wedding. :)
The day has finally arrived. I am no longer jobless (thank heavens) and hopefully will stay that way for a long time. Even though I already accepted the job offer almost two months ago, it just started today. Yes, I waited for a long time. First training day ended and I love it when it's just a 15-minute walk to my house. I walked a part of Escario street from Diamond Suites and Residences to Capitol site. I'm glad there is something that I can do to counter my sedentary lifestyle and it's economical as well. (Seven pesos is good economics. Oh yes, it is. lol) I fear it's still going to be a difficult first few months. I don't know if my money will last till first pay day (Oh gawd but I'll make do) and I have to think about the training months in Makati too. The sloth days were killing me financially but I've discovered courtesy of Jessica Zafra's blog that bananas can save any dying stomach. Poor financial strategy I should say. The entire 2010 was bad in that aspect. I was struggling with managing my money. Impulsiveness should just die and helping someone should not come at your expense. Save! Save! Save! will be my battle cry. I've learned my lesson. I'm hopeful, as we all do, that everything will work out fine in the end. Being positive is how I should greet 2011. In five days, a new year will begin. It's a start of something new after all and a chance to improve and be better.
