Deadlines. Dead lines.Don’t you just love beating deadlines? It is the timeframe you impose to yourself on how long a specific task must be completed. I remember asking my teachers to extend the deadline of our projects and assignments way back in high school. We were trained to submit everything on the dot or else we will be suffering the consequences.

You Have a Deadline to Beat. Stop Plurking!

You Have a Deadline to Beat. Stop Plurking!

As a student, I always thought that i’ll be able to escape from this deadline thing once I step out of school, but no. On my first home-based job as a virtual assistant, I was trained by my superiors to finish all my tasks (including daily reports) on a certain time. We rarely had extentions. I thought I could bum around as a work-at-home lady, but no.

  • The past week was pretty hectic yet fun. I finally landed a semi-full time job somewhere at United Nations. Why semi-full time? I am only required to be seen visibly at the office three times a week and I can do the rest of the tasks at home. I have to admit that my body needs to adjust with the schedule, but I’m really ok with it. New ideas, new tasks, new environment means more learning and more fun!
  • I read a number of comments from different bloggers who are eager to see Kuya Bunso, the first ever blogger film written, produced and directed by yours truly. I am also excited as much as everyone is, but errr.. we haven’t transferred the tapes yet LOL. Sorry na 😀
  • I attended two blogger events for a cause – the first one has something to do with our environment and the other one has something to do with cervical cancer. I am glad that companies and organizations are now tapping bloggers in raising awareness on certain issues like what I mentioned. Blog entries will be posted anytime this week.
  • Top bloggers Coy Caballes, Fritz Tentativa and Winston Almendras made us proud with their talk at the Mensa Day last Sunday at Fully Booked. The three good-looking and talented guys deserve a round of applause and standing ovation (parang Rihanna song lang LOL). I will post a blog entry and some videos soon.
  • I’ll be going back home to Dagupan City on Thursday and I might attend the SEO/SEM Workshop at Urdaneta City University on Friday. This is my chance to meet some of my kababayans who are actually doing well on this field. I am also eager to hear Ms. Janette Toral and Mr. Gary Viray talk in Pangasinan. It’s my first time in four months to go back home.
  • I’ve been having some emo moments lately which usually lasts for 30 minutes. Is that weird? I think not. The phone call with my mom the last time made me burst into tears at a public place, but I laughed out loud after hearing Carlo sing a Christmas song at the background. EMO MOMENT FAIL!
