I graduated Chemical Engineering in UP Diliman. I am a visionary.
Nowadays my life has been a friggin roller-coaster ride. Some days, it is smooth-sailing aka night-shift, then other times, it’s like a hurricane aka morning shift.
Anyway, minus the workload, last week was a blast. Thursday night I went out with friends. We drank ourselves silly. Then on the weekend, we went to a beach in Batangas. Although we didnt exactly swim on the beach, we did so many activities enough to keep us satisfied. Kayak, beach volleyball, billiards, table tennis, swim pool. The best part was the jamming at night. I know it sounds silly but for a moment there, I felt infinite. And also for a moment it kept my mind off of things I do not want to face yet.
And then we got back on Sunday and to reality.
Despite the havoc this shift caused my sleeping pattern, it remains as one of my precious moment.
As I work at night, I think I am more productive and more insightful.
Since at night, there’s little hustle and bustle, it’s a new mouthfeel and experience for me. Now I am sure that I am always and have been always a nocturnal thinker and worker.
After 11 months in the plant, this is my first taste of night shift. :)
When morning shifts are anything but peace, they say that night shifts equate melancholy.
And the way my life boat is rowing right now, I need this much-awaited tranquility.
But of course, I could never sacrifice quality work and that extra push.
This should balance my stress level. :)
Funny how I keep on reading and rereading what I’ve written for the past years here in Tumblr.
Some were testaments on how dense I was when I was younger. Other posts were complete proof that I was a struggling normal person like everyone else. But mostly, my posts were either bitchy or total bull.
Now, more than ever, I feel like a normal person. Here’s the sitch. I’ve completed my board exam. Yes, you heard it right, I am a licensed Chemical Engineer now bitches! I am nearing one year in work as supervisor. And now, I’ve started to workout, my first step to self-improvement. And I am back to reading mystery novels.
To some people, that’d be a good enough life. A normal life. But as for me, I need something else. Something more. A change in career? New lovelife? New sport or hobby?
Whatever that maybe, I need to realize it. And fast. Time may run out.
Here I am, on a Sunday shift in the office overlooking our department. Six months had passed since I entered this company. Truth be told, I am still weighing my feelings over my current work. I am now a Production Supervisor by the way. If I give you a bird’s eyeview on what I do as a Supervisor, I can’t promise that it won’t take so much of your time.
Everyday is intense here. Sometimes I love the atmosphere, the busy busy atmosphere brought upon by people working hard to earn money. Some days I wonder about the “what could have been’s” if I accepted the job as management trainee in a cigarette company I previously applied for. Other days I imagine myself as truly and technically applying my course in my job. Nevertheless, I am planning to learn as much as I can here.
Management is not easy. If I want a career out of it, I know that there are lots of sacrifices to be made, lots of projects to be accomplished and lots of goals to be achieved. People expect nothing less from me and I have to deliver every single time.
Anyway, I said it already but I’ll say it again. I know that fate will stir me in the best direction I’ve ever hoped for, and hopefully ‘ll just figure things out as I go along.
