My blog posts are gonna be intermittent. Get used to it. Updates?
- Civil Service College has offered me a permanent position. I'll be meeting up with the HR executive tomorrow to discuss my remuneration package before I make my decision. I would love to stay considering many factors. My team is awesome. I'm getting into the groove of my job scope. It's conveniently thirty minutes away from home. Of course, it's not what I envisioned myself doing, but I feel I can spare a year doing this for the experience.

I want a crazy, quirky home like this in future! How cute is this?
These are the YSL iconic arty oval rings that I want so badly. Aren't they just madly cool? Seriously. I need to find out if they're sold in Singapore. They cost around 200 USD, which is around 260 SGD. Sigh. Early birthday present anyone?
It's a Saturday and my whole afternoon was encumbered with mindless chores. I'm broke until I get my pay next week so I guess I'll be home the entire weekend, which is not such a bad thing really. I'm going to catch up on all my shows, read, and watch a couple of movies and, oh yes eat good food.
My grandmother's here for her monthly stayover. I hope she does not annoy me with her incessant nagging about my singlehood. For the past couple of months, her nagging revolved around my unemployment, and since that's resolved now, she's going to go at it again! Intervening grandmothers are not always a good thing.
My temp stint at the Civil Service College is coming along fine thanks to the temp guys who are so much fun to be around. I've been having a lot of fun actually. Yesterday was Leonard's last day and it was kinda sad to see him leave. Although I haven't known him long, we got along so well and he's such a laugh. I'm gonna miss him. And next week is Hafiz's last day. I tried to convince him to extend his contract but he won't budge! Well, I don't blame him. He has been temping for over 3 months now and he just wants to take a break before he enlists in NS. And that leaves me with nobody to hang out with! I hope the new temp guys will be as fun.
I slept decadently this weekend. Now I'm so well rested and wide awake. I foresee myself staring into darkness tonight hoping for sleep to befall.
I watched 'Enthiran' last night. Don't be mistaken. I was not one of the horde of people who were anticipating the release of the film and fervently booking the tickets. The only reason I had to sit through this three hour film in the theater was because my uncle went ahead to book us all tickets and I couldn't bail. Shankar, as always, blew us away with the cinematography, song sequences, locations, sets, and costumes. Aish looked amazing in the film. I personally thought that the plot is a little far-fetched, but I reckon a lot of people will still probably think it's an amazing film considering the fact that such a film is afterall a first of its kind in Kollywood.
You know when I said temping at DBS was alright? Scratch that. It downright sucked. The freaking office is a madhouse I tell you. And the office is so depressing! Grey carpeted floor, white walls and ceiling, white fluorescent lights... do i need to go on? I couldn't even see the light of day! A couple of days later the only thought my exhausted brain could harbour was... WHAT IN THE NAME OF GOD HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO? Seriously, there's no way someone like me could ever survive in a bank environment. All these banking jargon thrown my way and having to master the customer care system in a matter of days was no mean feat. So... I chickened out and called it quits.
So of cos I had to be proactive and managed to find another job. The number one motivation was of course my depleting bank balance. So I went for an interview for a temp admin position today at the Civil Service College and got the job immediately. I start Thursday. It's a three-month contract, and I'm just glad that it's so conveniently half an hour away from home. Now three months is ample time for me to find a permanent job I hope. I'm really hoping to find an events/PR position. Damn, nobody told me it was this hard to find a job that you actually like. Call me picky, but I'm not going to settle for just anything. Wish me luck.
I just went through a 12-hour ordeal. No kiddin. My laptop crashed on me this morning at 4 while I was watching Glee and I was unable to successfully restart it. You know that hideous, scary black screen with all the computer jargons? It just kept saying 'main system file corrupted'. THE HORROR! My current toshiba (okay the honest truth is, it actually belonged to my dad. but i declared it mine after my compaq died on me last year. and consequently, my dad had to get himself another laptop. yes i'm a brat) has never given me any problems and it's one of the best PCs I've used. Also considering the fact that I have a million photos and songs that I haven't backed up, you can imagine just how harrowing it was for me to know that I might possibly lose everything. I swear, I might have been depressed for months if that really happened.
I went to bed this morning chanting 'this is just a dream... this is just a dream'. And no, it wasn't a dream. I don't know what I did, but I managed to revive it. But I highly doubt it was me at all. It must have been a divine intervention, I'm sure.
So thank you God. Thank you for saving my toshiba.
