Update on the journey to the off beaten path

It has been 2 years and 10 months since I got a job in Mindanao. I was able to handle 3 accounts under Operations team and it has been 11 months since I transferred to the Support team. So far, I am loving the role in the Support team as it has given me the chance to have work-life balance.

Natal Day 2017

Another year has passed. Getting older and wiser. The start of 2017 is good for me since I got the position that I was eyeing from for quite sometime. I am still working in the beautiful Philippine island, also known as the Land of Promise and I guess I would still be here for the rest of the year.

Being far away from the hustle and bustle of the life in Luzon made things better. I can definitely say that I am loving myself better by taking care of myself, enjoying the fruits of my labor, learning new things that made me better in my craft, and the list goes on. 

Some say that people generally do not feel contented, and I think I feel the same way too. I am getting older and yet I am still waiting for the real man who will truly love, respect, understand and care for me. I need to have my own family because want to share my life with them and shower them with unconditional love. Plus, I am scared to grow old alone. I am hoping and praying that God will send him to me this year.

Who is your favorite entertainer (comedian, musician, actor, etc.)? Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep
What’s your favorite way to waste time? Play games on my phone
Do you have any pets? What are their names? I used to have a dog named Aoife but she's gone :(

How's the new job?

I survived the first week in the recruitment office. Working with new set of people, seeing new faces everyday, different processes, and trying to make sense of it all. Don't get me wrong, I am truly grateful to be in an environment wherein the stress level is manageable, I guess it's just that I am feeling anxious.

Journey to the off beaten path

I found out yesterday that I got the post for Recruitment Supervisor. I was eyeing a position in the said department since last year because I am sick and tired, literally and figuratively, of the everyday stress that I've been dealing with in Operations Department. My heart was overwhelmed because it is an answered prayer. I will assume the post that comes with manageable stress level which in turn would be of help in improving my health.
Now comes the bad news, Cruella De Ville does not want to release me yet. The nerve of that evil witch to prolong my agony!

So far, so good

In my last post, which was posted a year ago, I shared with y'all that I will be moving to a different island for work.
So far I am enjoying the peaceful, laid back atmosphere here in Mindanao. The people are generally nice and easy to work with. The cost of living is low compared to Manila. I have been to other places nearby like Samal, Bukidnon, Gen. San, and Cagayan de Oro.
I am loving it here, I miss my family back home though.
