Happy anniversary

I only realized a couple of minutes ago that I've been with this company for a year now yesterday. I started on the fifth of November last year.

Funnily enough, I realized it when, while taking a break from work (I'm pulling an all-nighter), I was browsing through some job classifieds. It's something I do to relax, really; I find it good to know that if I ever get fired I would still have some options.

Not that I'm leaving anytime soon. I would say that I'm not thinking about leaving, but that wouldn't be honest. I wake up every morning with this burning desire to run away.

It reminds me of several years back, in college, when Angel and I were still together, and (the ass that I am), I would tell her about how much I wanted to run away. I could sort of understand why a girl would not be so thrilled with the idea of her boyfriend running away (or at least constantly babbling on about it).

I don't know, I guess I'm a bit of a flake that way. The year I've spent with this company is the longest time I've spent in the same place.

But again, I'm not leaving. I'm enjoying working for this company too much, and right now, I have a hard time imagining myself having as good a time in any other workplace. I mean, the other day, I woke up at 10am, watched the Suns game on TV, had lunch, and then started thinking about going to work. As toxic as work gets sometimes, I'm never too busy to ever miss out on dates with friends whenever there are plans for getting together. I get along well with my work mates and my bosses, and I've made quite a few real friends here at the office. I also see pretty girls quite often, which, as shallow as it sounds, actually amounts to a lot.

(Also, terms like chorva have slowly made their way to my vocabulary. I don't know what to make of it.)

On the flipside, I think I'm performing well enough. Oh fuck it, I'm perfect for this job! Sure, anybody can develop web applications and do Apache server configurations, but can you find anyone who does that and knows otherwise really really (really) useless information like "American Adobo" being the last movie where Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong were together, and that "Dear Heart" was Sharon Cuneta's first movie, and that the first episode of "Young Love, Sweet Love" starred the love team of Romnick Sarmienta and Jennifer Sevilla.

Oh, and I also fill in from time to time for the graphics guys. Here's my favorite, which was created for this piece.


Congratulations tol. :) May this year be a more fruitful year for you there in your work.

No more lazy default accounts and passwords ok?


Omg! Do u know how long I've been looking for
ANY reference to Romnick Sarmienta and Jennifer Padilla? They were my favorite when I was living in the Philippines more than a decade ago! It was as if Jennifer never existed! Thank you for at least mentioning them =)


pareho tayo! nov 5! 2001 nga lang! Ü
