Thought of writing something about myself. Just in case anyone is interested in reading ;)
Honestly, before the emotional downfall of the Celtics today, I’m having a good time. As you notice, it’s already May which means my internship is likely to be done in 2 weeks time. I am happy that I can feel summer vacation, finally. But sad as well ‘cause I’ll probably miss people at the office and so does our clients. And my May was off to a good start considering that last May 1, I received a random yet sweet message from Jay. “Uyy, bachoy, miss na kita”. Yeah, that’s what he said. It’s sweet to read something like that the first thing in the morning. And, I also had a short chat with Jules whom I miss so dearly. He’s my co-intern and I miss him around. Super funny even if we’re just chatting. Haha. So, last Friday I was at our office after quite sometime to do my time record for April 15 to 30. I do not have my immediate bosses so Ms. Abby was the closest. She gave me tasks that I eventually finish easily. She’s really kind and funny so I had a great time working with her. Lunch time, I was alone and went around to check on places to eat. Luckily, I found the nearest Subway at RCBC and thrilled that the place is spacious and there weren’t lots of people when I came in. Of course, a sub is always awesome. Had a full lunch and I also get a free trial at Fitness First also at RCBC. I was flattered because the guy giving out these free trials really thought I’m really working already. So, I guess, I’m maturing. ;) Anyways, my afternoon was spent at the OS wherein I had to scan documents Ms. Jade ask me to and it was my first time to use the photocopy/ scan machine. Even typically interns would do that, it was just my first and I must say, I had fun doing it. My first run was a complete failure. I scanned every document the other way around. I’m just thankful that for the second round, Kuya Mark was there to help me out. Then, I did Ms. Abby a favor. And speaking, she was stunned and having this evil smile when I was able to accomplish the forms needed for my TR with signature form Ms. Vanj. If you know her, you know what I mean.
My evening was different ‘cause it was like a reward. I went to the gym as scheduled and had a really good run. I saw my favorite trainer and this artist from ABS-CBN namely Marco, I guess. Then, I had dinner with my sister and Yomi at Pepper Lunch. Their food is really amazing and was so full. Also had Red Velvet from Sonja’s which is terrific. We also had a glimpse of Rianne Ramos and she’s really pretty. But the most amazing part was Joseph Yeo. Remember him? He’s my forever archer. He’s my favorite DLSU player back on his UAAP days and it was so cool to see him again. He was with his family and good to see that he is indeed a family man now. He has two lovely daughter and a pretty wife. It’s just so good to see Seph again :’) Forever crush!
Today … my morning is about basketball and basketball alone. I was speaking with my cousin through facetime and shared to her how frustrated I was with the Celtics lost therefore we were loud and crazy about the OKC’s game ‘cause we want them to win so that we still have a team to cheer for. My Aunt on the other hand was loud alone ‘cause of the Memphis game and at that moment, I realize how my family is an insane basketball fans. Haha. Loud cheers from everywhere their house and ours, as if we’re neighbors. It was fun. Then, I had quite a personal and serious talk with my cousin about things going on with her life. We’re so excited to see one another soon. Real soon! Today’s also the birthday of my baby, Marco. I haven’t seen him since forever, so hopefully, I’ll get to see him soon.
I do not know what to do now. Oh, I’m considering on reading a book since my sister is out with her friends. I don’t know. I’m just emotional about today. Something’s going to change again. And something’s bound to happen. Praying for the best. So, got to go. And see you soon. xoxo
Yours truly have some updates from how we spent our holy week to my first week at my internship. Let’s talk about our holy week first :>
As part of tradition, we always seek the comfort of our province, Quezon whenever we spent Holy Week so we went there last Maundy Thursday and has our Visita Iglesia from various churches in Batangas. I love the paintings at Padre Garcia church because they are divine. They all look so alive. Food wise, I enjoyed “kababayan” from Sunrise Bakery at Sariaya, Quezon. Then the following day was a mere hangout with my cousins. We spent time playing 2Fuse and have it as competition. We attended this mass also which is done every Good Friday where you kiss the cross. The same eveving there was a procession and I evern saw my high school batchmate, Ciara whom I never know is from Tayabas as well. My cousins and I were watching the procession also the people who tag along as they wear heels and gays are dressed up as if it’s a Santacruzan instead. :O The following day was a feast as we had our swimming with the clan. My cousins and I were supposed to go Kwebang Lampas at Pagbilao but due to many circumstances we ended up not coming :| We had a good swim though and enjoyed my Mom’s barbeque so much. Haha. Then, later that evening we attended the “salubong” which is by the far the longest mass I’ve ever been. There were 7 readings and it’s just so long. I actually have a secret crush to one of the priest who lead the mass. Is that a big sin? Oh Lord, I’m sorry. Hmm, my cousins and I spent a very spontaneous camping that evening. It was crazy :)) We had the most insane UNO game every played, and we stayed up ‘till 5am. It was so cold at Tayabas as if it’s Christmas time. I had fun with thy cousins though we don’t have any plans. We also had a little chit chat on what’s up with their plans and their life. It was a holy week well spent with family around. I love you guys! >:D<
Now, my first of internship. Last Monday was “the” day! We had our orientation and I was culture shock with how busy they are. Hmm, I am an intern at BDO Alba Romeo and Co., which is an auditing firm. They are all busy because Tax and Financial Statement deadline is due to on the 15th of April. On my first day, I need to do a cross footing which is similar to what we did during our Financial Accounting 2 class. And Ms. Rachelle was really jolly and I enjoyed her orientation. I also had a couple of new friends and some are form the same school as mine but a year higher than I.The following day I basically did what I expect most internship jobs do with filing, punching and taping. Then, more real work came the following days such as depreciation schedule and such. I had a spontaneous dinner with my family last Wednesday which was a complete shocker. We had dinner at North Park at G5 while went for a shop at Forever 21 too. Thursday was another “the” day because we went to a client at DEPED compound and it was like the first taste on how we get the values at the financial statements. We had to check all the cash receipts and disbursements while confirming each at their supported files. We also had to do the vouching. I’m just glad Ms. Charly is so accommodating and she treats us with KFC for lunch and Amber’s for dinner. Though her stories were really freaky as their compound have those spirits. If you know what I’m talking about ;) I’m with Jules and Ms. Jade and we spent until 10pm just to finish at least the data gathering. I’m just thankful again that Ms. Charlyn lives near Harrison Plaza which is close to ours so she treat me for my ride home. Thanks Ms. Charlyn, I wish you a happy pregnancy. Hihi. Of course, my most awaited day is Friday and I basically am busy the entire day. Ugh. But Saturday was big break, I woke up late and I had the feeling I could have slept longer. Haha. I wasn’t feeling well, and I felt like my period is to come but it dind’t. Anyhow, we went to the South. :D We dropped by at Town and bough a blazer and glad Mom bought us ESPRIT shirts again. Yes. I think I’m going to collect their shirts. Plus, we had J.CO as my Dad wanted to have it a try. And later that evening, we went for an evening swimming at Los Banos. We had a great swim. Hooraaay! Though the weather is terrifying hot, the hot spring is so relaxing and it’s a good family time too. And today, was the perfect setup on how simple and typical our Sundays used to be like. I miss these times when we stay as a family at our original home in Laguna :’)
Guess that’s it. Summer is just starting and so does my intership. I must embrace the reality that things will be tougher in the next few weeks to come. And by the way, our grades were released and there was miracle with some but was so disappointed with Cost Accounting grade. Anyways, hello senior year! ;) xoxo
