Just a quick update ^_^

Hello everyone!

I know I've been MIA for a while already..I'm just busy taking care of my grandma who underwent an operation and I'm staying with her. My grandparents' house don't have a computer so it is impossible for me to check and update my blog every now and then. I just went back last Sunday night here at my place coz I have an interview today and I'll be back to my grandma tomorrow morning..in short, I'll be MIA again hehe :)

I just don't want to leave you all hanging..wondering what happened to me..I will probably be back to circulation in 2 weeks coz my grandma will follow to the province where my grandpa is working..we are just waiting for a go signal from her doctor if she can already travel and doesn't need any close monitoring anymore..

By the way, I have a great news to all of you..my prayers are answered already..My interview this afternoon went well..Actually I have kept quite about my application in this company so that I won't jinx it hehe..I applied for the position of media transcriptionist in a company in Makati..the salary is not that big but what attracted me to it is the "advantages" hehe..it's day shift (8am-5pm) only, Sundays off, with holidays and with free meals and unlimited drinks..And of course the job is perfect for me too since I love watching TT series and variety shows and also movies..the job is somewhat like putting subtitles on American movies and shows..and since I already have some experience transcribing, I think it would be easier for me to adjust..I was able to pass the very long exam last week and this afternoon I was able to pass my interview too..According to my interviewer, they will just call me for the schedule of my training in a week or two..I hope it would be sooner coz I want to be able to work before my birthday comes this month hehe..so yeah I am very happy right now ^_^

That's it! Those are the things that kept me busy these past couple of weeks..I hope I'll be able to post regularly agin soon..till next time..God bless everyone! ^_^


Oh yeah, before I forget...My aunt's friend needs blood..if any of you are willing to donate please contact me (0926.724.7387)..the patient is in need of blood type A+ but we can use any blood type and just exchange it for the type we need..Thank you so much guys!

Congrats on your new work! ^.^ At least you can get started and learn new experiences... It will be a cinch doing the transcribing... Do you need to put the texts on the videos? I suggest you learn how to use video editing softwares like Mac's final cut or Adobe premier pro but it's really easy =) I just learned it on my own when I was doing my thesis and we need to overlay texts on the video for our documentary film... Good luck on your training!!! ^.^

im pretty sure you'll have fun in your new job. when i was job hunting before i already heard of that job & i am also quite interested.
good luck,hun!

im glad that your grandma is feeling better na. i know how difficult it is to have a loved one be hospitalized. i guess you must have been worried so much

shobe - hi! not that hard naman po..you just send your resume in the address found in their ad sa Manila Bulletin then wait for an email from Ms. Leah Castro about your sched for the exams. Exams naman are just basic English and computer exams plus a typing speed test..then you will again wait for a call for the sched of your interview if you passed the exams..then if you pass the interview, they will call you again for the sched of the training.

This is a part time work lang so you can choose to just work for a minimum of 4hrs a day..yun nga lang the salary is not that big ha..minimum wage lang pero at least day shift ang work and you can still be with your baby a lot longer :)

Chelle - Hi! thank you so much! we do need to transcribe sometimes but not always..the client has a software they use so uyun ang gamit nung company :)

Thiamere- thank you! I'm lucky that my grandma is already better when my training today started..I can now leave her side without any worries :)

neurochiq - thank you! ^_^

Nikkiz -thank you sis! oo nga eh hehe super happy me :)

Emily - Hi! I miss reading your blog too! I hope I can be back to posting regularly now..have you tried doing part time work? that will be a good start for students like you :)

Pammy -thank you! I'm happy you're also enjoying your new job ^_^
