All you need is just a little PATIENCE

God’s Delays Aren’t God’s Denials

When blessings are delayed, God wants you to enjoy and appreciate all the other blessings that are in your life right now.

But believe that right now, God is cooking the miracle that you need in His kitchen. He’s preparing it for you. He’s baking it to perfection.

It’s been exactly 3 months and 3 weeks since my last project ended. The 1st and 2nd month went so fast because I went back to the Philippines for my mom’s b-day. If I can only stay longer but I have to get back here and find a job for the house, car, insurance, bills etc.

I applied for unemployment benefits which really helped … $406/week were not bad to get by. But as the government letter stated “We are paying you to find a job” so I have to list at least 5 weekly work searches to continue receiving the benefits. I have to post my resume everywhere: P … monster job for example.

Recruiters said Eureka lol… they will keep on sending email and will call you for the entire job that will match your resume. I’ll have like 3 to 4 phone interviews every day … sometimes for the same job. They will force you to sign the Rights to represent document.

I have not applied for work for the last 4 years. I didn’t know that there are lots of new policies. Like you cannot work for contract after your last contract ends… you have to wait 45-60 days especially if you worked more than a year from your last job. They said that according to the law if you are working for a year then the company must hire you as permanent/local. So it prolongs the wait… Being impatient as I am hehehe I have to do something that makes me busy.

I continue my Digital Photography classes. I still have 3 subjects more to get my certification. I enrolled Night, Low Light and Flash Photography, Action Photography and Foundations of Photographic Style which is darn so boring :(. It’s nice that our HS Reunion took place here in Dallas; I have some client’s shoots on weekends and some b-day parties to attend.

As I continue my job search I applied to the entire job posting on all telecoms company near my zip code. I was lucky to get an interview on one of the job in 3 days. After the Technical interview, I got the HR interview the following week. I was surprised that the following day they already gave me the offer. I was not planning of getting a permanent job since a contract work will pay more. I asked some friends who used to work as a consultant like me why did they accepted being local. They said that the benefits will almost equal the difference of the dollar amount that we received as a contractor. So I said ok I’ll try then. I signed the job offer last August 13. The following week I have to do the drug test and now I still have to wait for the result of the back ground check.

Since I graduated from a different country international check takes forever… Yeah literally 😦 … It was really good that I still have to attend my classes while waiting.

The Heartthrobs in Dallas

Me, tita Raquel and tita Jen’s family watched the concert last night. Tita Raquel likes Piolo a lot ( who doesn’t? ), si tita Jen napapaglihan yata si Gerald and of course ako naman i love JLC lols.

The show started with Pokwang. She performed a Lady Gaga’s song and did her funny antiques. Richard Poon serenaded the ladies. Then a duet from Kim and Gerald. Next is Sam then Bea…. and wuhooooo my John Lloyd … and of course Papa P.

I really cracked with the performance of Pokwang. See the video.

And I sooooo love John Lloyd here. I wanted to shout “Popoy ako na lang ulet hahaha”

I really enjoyed the night. Except that I was disappointed with the organizer… or should i say “disorganizer” hehehe. Imagine pinapasok nila yung mga tao then pinalabas ulet. Like they don’t have a clue on what they are doing. Tapos they are selling $20 shirt telling “Buy the shirt they will sign it after the show” … so yung yung mga fanatic syempre nagbilihan. At the end of the show there’s a lady yelling. NO SIGNING … lols… Picture lang group of 10 dapat.

Tsk kawawa naman yung mga bumili ng t-shirt… Imagine $20 eh ni wala man lang kahit picture ng performers na nakaprint… nakalagay lang yata Heartthrobs hehehe.  Buti pa yung Britney Spears concert saka yung Ricky Martin $10 lang yung shirt tapos may malaking picture nila sa harap.

Raket na raket hahahaha.

Anyways, basta ako so happy… why? empre naka kiss ako kay Geral, Sam at kay John Lloyd my love 😛

More concert PICTURES. <=== Click the link.

Mr. Chickboy

September 15, 2009 – Ok simula ngayon hindi ko na makakalimutan ang araw na ‘to. Special na ang araw na to para sa akin… Hmmm it’s good walang tinamaan na date na kaparehas… sa dinami-dami ba naman hindi ko na gustong bilangin pa.

Ilang araw na din na hindi ko masabi sa dalawang bestfriend ko yung gusto kong sabihin. Tinawagan na nga ako ni kaps pero di ko pa din nasabi. Tapos MIA pa ang mga co-ds. Minsan nasabi ko sa isang plurkmate na sige sabihin na nating ka-close but not so tight lols. Kung minsan mas mainam magsabi sa tao na hindi mo pa nakikita at hindi ka pa din nakikita… medyo walang pressure both sides… ok ang flow ng pag-uusap… walang halong hesitation… kumbaga pakikinggan ka lang niya saka sasagot ng lol… kaloka!

Pero ngayong araw na ito dahil sa Canon…. oh i am loving Canon na tuloy ng bonggang bongga… Bluntly … straight … sapol… matagal na pala tayong naghihintayan hehehe… OK i’ll be honest natawa ako dun sa part na “kita mo tayo din pala sa huli”… alam ko tawa ka din ng tawa.

Funny it may seem… alam ko parehas tayong nakahinga ng maluwag… yun bang pakiramdam na ang tagal mong nagtatatakbo … hinihingal ka then biglang may nag-abot sa iyo ng tubig… yung pakiramdam na nakapagpahinga ka saglit at nawala yung sobrang thirst.

Kagaya ng sabi mo mas malawak pa sa focal point ng Canon ang ating thinking… again salamat sa Canon. At salamat sa iyo… you made me laugh… alam mo bihira nakakapagpatawa sa akin ng ganito… kaya SALAMAT!

Taser

100

Hmmp … medyo nakakainis din itong si PB… after 100 Karma … taser lang pala ang bago kong engoticon tsk!

Anyways 1 year na pala akong plurker… at after 1 year saka lang din umabot sa 100 ang karma ko… pede na din coz medyo naging busy ako at di na din masyado naging active. Naisip ko lang ano ba napala ko sa pagpaplurk???

nakameet ng madaming online friends syempre the best ang mga co-ds

naging reason ang plurk para maaga akong pumasok para abutan ko pa ang mga friends na iba ang time

nakabasa ng mga kakaibang plurkserye at ang winnur ang dating yung ( nagseselosan online sabay delete ng plurk account, aawayin yung pinagseselosan in the end poser pala at di nag eexist ang boylet … gurlaloo… gaylet ahhh watevur) ooops may isa pa pala … ang  mga taong ginagawang pangalawang mundo ang plurk para makapagpretend at maisakatuparan ang mga pangarap na di makamit sa tunay na mundo )

minsan parang high school ang dating ng mga timeline… minsan parang palengke… minsan parang talipapa… pero kahit ano pa man ang timeline ayus lang yan kung diyan sumasaya at sa mga naiirita naman madali lang pindutin ang “UNFOLLOW”

ang centennial na susi isa sa pinaka nakakaaliw sa plurklife ko 🙂

anyways salamat sa mga plurk friends… pasensya na 50 friends lang ang limit ko… para sa akin kasi quality first… yung quantity balewala kung iunfollow lang naman kita… na “ta-tanggahan” lang kasi ako sa walang ginawa kundi mag create ng account saka dedeletin 😛

sa mga ni-delete ko … gaya ng sabi ko 50 friends lang ang limit… kapag matagal ka ng naka unfollow ano pa ang sense na nasa list kita diba? saka hindi kasi ako matyaga kapag hindi consistent ang pinagsasabi ng tao… hindi ko kayang itake na nasa list kita… pasensiya na huh!

salamat sa mga naka EB… sana matuloy ang EB sa December… excited na ako sa photoshoot.
