hello worley.

i am now in the world of

chopping seats with tissue paper during lunch,

making coffee in pantries as an excuse to get off the seat,

hearing the clicks and clacks of high heel shoes every morning,

cherishing public holidays more than ever and

counting down to 5.30pm everyday.

it is not a simple world to survive in.

  4. hahahahaha! HELLO LITTLY BELLY!

    b.b, hmmm.. why don’t you try opening up to them? talk to them and I think things will definitely get better for you. I think you really must pep talk yourself into liking your company one way or another if not it’s going to be difficult for you! :( I have failed my internship once, I just didn’t go to work for a very long time. And I got into some deep shit with the school side. So, DO NOT GIVE UP!

    And I hate wearing heels, so painful lor…=(

    fangz

    May 17, 2008 at 9:53 am

  60. heyhey peggy.. i know this sounds VERY random, but where had u get the nerdy black specs? i am looking for it!!!

  61. Pegs, if you can bypass the firewall and use another server as a proxy, you might just be able to log into MS Messenger without a 3rd party site (which will eventually be blocked by OAs)

    9-5 jobs? When was the last time I’ve been in one? Normally, it’s 9-5 official, dinner and a round of beer and back to work. I’d be lucky if I get off by 9pm (for drinks).

    I always joke about having work-life balance (the corporate buzzword these days). My work is my life and I work all day, so I’m perfectly balanced.

    Saw you strolling back to office after lunch the other day and you look quite moody. Didn’t know Cineleisure can be such a pain to lunch at. Ok, maybe it can be, but it beats the foodcourt below your building.

    Anyway, you won’t be there for very long and to make time pass easier, just focus on a challenge or a project at work and keep at it. That should keep you from glancing at the clock or watch, counting down to 5.30pm.

    The funny thing is, if you’re in a challenging job, you don’t wish for the end of the day. In fact, more often than not, time is scarce and you wish there’ll be more time to do the things you need to do.

    However, if you’re still feeling miserable after work, we somersetians have several convenient chill-out joints around the area for a quick pick-me-up. Hope to see you there as well.

    In any case, welcome to the corporate world where no matter how depressing and gloomy things will seem to be, there is always light at the end of the tunnel… lit by the rows of florescent lamps on the office ceiling.

  62. thanks veronica!

    fangz, i think its super common right? my colleagues OT almost everyday also lor. and why don’t you wear heels to work but bring a pair of flops and wear when you walk around office? :D

    granger, got it from flesh imp!

    JL, wow long time since I received such a long comment! haha! can see that you put quite some time typing this out, and well, i think work isn’t that bad after all. sometimes when my seniors don’t gimme work to do, i’ll go ask for something to do. because time passes much faster when i’m busy. so i’m doing well, getting by, don’t worry about me! hahaha!
    afterlunch means the second half of the day is going to start soon, maybe i eat not enough thats why face black black. haha!!! but my colleagues are pretty nice to me, so i’m perfectly fine with them! :)
    where do you work? in the same building as me? cannot be right?
    btw, having lunch in cineleisure is quite good. i can check movie timings. and i LOVE to watch movies alone. can always catch one after i knock off. haah!

  63. Impressive. Quick response. Typical Singaporean efficiency.

    Since I’m not at work, I have the luxury to be a little long-winded. It’s good to write casually at times. It gets the creative juices flowing and works up the imagination.

    I work in the tall building opposite yours. The tall one with big antennas sticking out on the roof. My company is affectionately known as the Red one, or Big Red, in the telco industry.

    Catch you around the area.
