Remember how I said I had some upcoming changes in my life in one of my previous entries? Well, this is what it was about. Starting a new career. I moved from a service delivery type of work to a program / project management one. It’s still in the same field (Information Technology), but what I do now is different from what I’ve been doing in the past.

I’ve learned a lot of things in the short amount of time since I’ve started and I’m sure that I’ll be learning a whole lot more. It’s a bit taxing since I have so much to learn and there isn’t really a way to ease your way into learning it. But I find it easier to learn something when I’m actually doing it, so I guess I’m good. I just have to find my groove in managing my time with all the tasks I’m handling and once I do, I’m sure everything will be a bit easier. 🙂

Anyway, that’s all the time I have for today. Until next time dear readers! (^^)/~~

Due to some upcoming changes in my life, I thought that this is something important to know. Really quite relevant to said changes.

I hope this will be helpful to others too. 🙂

Happy New Year dearest readers! ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

It was a fun 2012 for sure, despite the problems that I encountered along the way. I think that the year 2012 was a good start on my road to self-discovery (not that I was even aware I started embarking on such a journey. :P) and I’ve been learning more about myself and my strengths and weaknesses. In my heart, I just know that 2013 will be more awesome that 2012 was. 🙂

I was deciding whether to include this year’s New Year’s resolutions in this entry but I think that I should reflect on what I really want to accomplish for this year. This year, I don’t want to make resolutions just willy-nilly. I want to be able to measure the success of this year’s resolutions so that I can gauge accurately whether or not I’m making progress. And it would be easy to determine what steps to take to be able to achieve that goal in case I’m behind.

For example, one of my goals for this year is to lose weight (as if it isn’t every year). But now I know that if I don’t include how many pounds I want (need?) to lose and by when I want to lose them, I’ll probably end up not fulfilling that resolution (again). I want my New Year’s resolutions to be like goals we set at work. I know that if I do that, the probability of me actually completing my goals are higher.

I want to start 2013 right. And what better way to start it than by making sure this year’s resolutions are well thought of, right? Hopefully, with this kind of preparation and mindset, I’ll be able to fulfill most, if not all, of the goals I’ll be setting this year. 🙂 Yes to positivity and no to passivity. 😀

I’ve quite a bit of reflecting to do so I’ll take my leave now. Until next time dear readers. (^^)/~~

HAPPY NEW YEAR! o((*^▽^*))o

HP: A Year Gone By…

Clare and Tateen

Clare and Tateen

Last June 16, 2012, Tateen, Clare, and I “celebrated” our first year at HP. It’s been quite a year and I have so much to be thankful for. Despite all the problems that came my way,  both personal and work-related, I really had a fun year. I didn’t really expect to have this much fun. 🙂

Anyway, Happy Anniversary to us Tateen and Clare! Here’s to hoping for a more awesome year ahead of us. Thanks for being great friends and I hope that we’ll continue to be friends for a long time. 😀

That’s all really. I just wanted to say that. 😛

Until my next blog post dear readers. 🙂
