I had just finished watching game two of round one of an MTGO video starring Brian Kibler using his BR Infect in Starcitygames.com. Good thing that I had an earphone to use since the environment outside has been a wee bit noisy for me to even hear what I am watching. After watching, I decided to take a break for a while and looked at the time. It was just an hour before the turn of the New Year. I’ve been very busy the whole day online that there were no idle moments for me. Imagine, I am playing Backyard Monsters- managing my girlfriend’s account and my account while reading an MTG article in ChannelFireball, reading an article in Starcitygames.com, texting my girlfriend and talking to my pet chick (more stories of how I got my chick later). At the same time, I was able to finish all the articles that need to be accomplished before I fetch my girlfriend tomorrow from Batangas. She asked for my help in updating some of her blogs.
Actually, I have been having a bit of difficulty collecting my thoughts on how I should start writing an update for my blog. Yeah, I know it’s been a while but unlike my girlfriend who is an active blogger, I tend to write by the mood. However, I don’t plan to end the year without writing something on my blog. Good thing was that I already had an idea of what things to put on the blog. I was inspired by the articles that I read in Starcitygames.com about people recounting the past year so I thought that would be a nice update. I even had notes saved on my mobile phone.
Perhaps the best way for me to start my story is of course, to share something that was memorable to me at the start of year 2011. Just forgive me if there are no particular dates indicated for each scenario. I just could not remember when they exactly took place. So, I’ll be sharing those memorable events by each quarter. Okay with that?
Damn it’s pretty noisy outside. Hmm, just 15 minutes left? I wonder if I could finish this post in that timeframe. Anyway, the year 2011 started just fine. I remember working for this certain contact center in Makati for almost two years. In those two years, I learned a lot and was determined to work for promotion. Unfortunately, the path (Or should I say climb) up the corporate ladder was not as simple as it appears to be. Especially that I am in the Philippines. Long story short, I was not able to make it and decided to move elsewhere. On the brighter side of that story, I was able to experience how to manage a team. I even learned how to audit some calls and grade them as how quality assurance agents would. Overall, the experience was fine enough but at that time, I thought that it was time to move on.
And 4 minutes to go. I paused writing this blogpost for a while to greet the people a happy new year.
