Anniversary Post?

IMG_20180610_154844

Oh wow! I can’t believe that it’s been a year since I’ve started this blog. Congrats self for keeping up and for being able to continue.

Anyway, I wanted to talk about my recent job interview wherein I do actually like the position that I’ve applied for and I’m hoping to get that “you’ve been accepted” text/call. I feel like I did a good job but I don’t know since I haven’t been contacted yet. I really wanted that position since it’s related to my course and I do think that I’ll be able to learn a lot about Online stuffs through it.

Honestly it’s not that I’m always rejected to all my interviews, I did pass in some it’s just that I’m not really fond of the position that I’m offered in. You might be wondering why did you even apply if you don’t want the position? I applied in different companies for different positions to familiarize myself on how an interview goes, so that if I applied for a position/company that I really like, I would be more confident in answering questions especially in english.

I guess that’s all for this anniversary blog. I didn’t get to write much since I wasn’t able to plan the topic that I’ll talk about, but if anything comes to mind within the day, I would post more.

Marketing Vs Selling

Marketing is knowing the needs and wants of the consumer and producing goods/services based on that knowledge.

Selling is the action of exchanging goods/services for a price — oftentimes money –.

Basically Marketing is a way to know what to sell, where to sell, who to sell to, how will you sell and how much will you sell it. It provides goods and services at the right place, right price, in the most convenient way possible. Marketing’s main goal doesn’t only focus on sales and profit but also customer satisfaction.

Why did I write this? I was asked to differentiate marketing and selling in my job interview this morning, and that’s my non-verbatim, thought out, paraphrased answer which I didn’t get to say. Since the answer should be spontaneous and I didn’t have that much time to think about these words and just to vent out my disappointment, I wrote it.

Today’s Feedback from the interview: From you need to improve your communication skills to you have a good communication skills. I’m satisfied!

Life after college

You know what scares me the most after graduating? Being unemployed. Why? Because I know that I’ll be unappreciated, they will see me as a person with no dream or vision. But what they don’t see is that I’m trying to do things at my own phase, trying to keep it calm, trying not to overwhelm myself with doing a lot of things all at once. But the people around me keeps pushing me to go faster than my own phase. They don’t understand that I’m in the process of accepting the change that happened in my life, I’m still adjusting to life after college, I’m not the kind of person who can easily adapt to changes.

During my freshmen year in college, I thought that I would be able to escape being look down upon. Well, I guess I can never really escape that do I? I will always be the dreamless, lazy, careless and insensitive child.

Do you know how badly I want to open up to someone and tell all these things that’s been bothering me. It’s just that I don’t want to look dramatic or overacting in their eyes that I choose to keep silent and write about it, rather than tell someone. I guess it does help, at the moment.

I’m not yet ready but they don’t see that, do they?

I wanted to be a teacher but they said that there’s no growth in there and it pays little. I wanted to wait and find the job that I think will suit me more but they said to apply to a certain job because it pays more.

I feel like I’m making the same mistake as I did before entering college, study any course just to have a degree.  Find job just to have a job. I am the type of person that takes time in deciding the things that I want to do. Stop pressuring me, stop rushing me, it hinders me to make right decisions.

I am lost don’t make me take any direction just so I can move. Let me find my own path, in my own pace, on my own.

Straight Outta College!

I can’t believe that I’m already out of college, it feels like it’s only yesterday when I first enter the classroom during my freshmen year and now I’m already unemployed, it’s a bittersweet experience. Bitter since I’m going to be leaving the place where I stayed most of my life to start the next chapter, wherein I have to be independent and stand for myself. Sweet because all the studying for the exams, the late nights preparing for a presentation, the procrastination and the rushing for the deadlines has now paid off. Graduating was one of my greatest achievement so far.

Honestly though, until now, I still feel lost but I try to live by going along with the waves until I figure out what I want to do. If that’s a good decision, I don’t know. I guess we’ll see what happens.

 

What’s offending and what’s not?

In my group of friends it has been a constant debate of what’s offending and what’s not. They say, if it’s below the belt, it’s offending but the question is what’s below the belt?

 

Sometimes the most simple jest can hurt some people. So when can we say that the joke has gone too far? In my perspective, we can never know. Arguments, misunderstanding and miscommunication is and will always be a part of our socializing, we get to interact with different kinds of people that’s why we are prone to this kinds of conflict.

 

So what do we do about it? As for me, if ever I was offended, I shrugged it off and just go along with the joke. I don’t make a big deal out of it but I do rant about it in my writings.

Two notebooks, Four months and 500 hours later…

Every ending is the beginning of another something (what? hahaha). I’ve already finished my 500 hours of internship in ABS-CBN. I would say this was a great experience and possibly one of the most memorable one. As what I’ve mentioned before, I never thought I would be able to become an intern to a very well-known company moreover a TV network. Seeing celebrities and all was a great experience but other than that, I would say that the things that I’ve learned and the knowledge that I’ve gained throughout the program was more valuable. It’s an incredible experience. I mean, photocopying, printing, compiling documents where the “common” internship experience and my sister told me that her college friends, who also did their internship in the network, told her that the only benefit that they get is that they saw celebrities, but their workload was mostly photocopying things and they didn’t get to be that expose in their course-related work. But that’s not the case for me, since we were ask to present proposals, we were involved in a brainstorming activity, we do product shots and we also handled online inquiries and events which is related to my course (Marketing).

I was really excited in finishing this internship since that would mean that I’m literally a “Grad waiting” student but separation anxiety sure strike hard. I can’t seem to leave the office and I find it hard to say goodbye. I remember looking back while walking away, I remember the happy faces through the glass door, I remember the laugh as they told me the iconic words that they always use to tease me and I remember holding back the tears that really want to leave these eyes. The hugs, the words of encouragement, the words of appreciation for what we’ve done for the past months might’ve been just words for them but I really took it to heart and it gives me motivation to strive harder. Congratulating us for our upcoming graduation, wishing us luck for our future endeavors it makes me feel important even if we’re just an intern.

Wouldn’t be you

Do you know what’s worst?

 

It’s when you found out that he moved on.

 

When you’ve heard the story of how he had fought to keep his feelings,

Only for it to run away and leave him permanently.

It’s when you’ve realized that you’ve made the wrong decision to choose your dreams and grow first before him,

Just because you know that he’ll stay.

 

How you see him struggle through the poems that he had written,

Through the songs that he created

And through the words that he had spoken.

 

How every line pertains to you,

His love for you,

And all the emotions that he felt throughout the relationship.

 

How you find it hard listening to his newer songs,

Without realizing that the story wasn’t about his longing

And love for you anymore.

 

How he tell the story of his happiness that you happen

And that you will always be a part of who he was.

 

How he’s thankful for the love,

The hurt,

The memories that you’ve left.

 

How he’s fine with the way things happened,

Without bitterness, without sadness

Only acceptance, that your special participation in his story has ended.

 

How he brightly tell everyone how he WAS in love with you.

While you are STILL loving.

 

How you realized that in the future,

When you are still hoping for your happily ever after with him,

He already found the perfect woman.

 

And you will know through the songs that he will write,

That she will never leave,

She will choose to be with him while chasing her dreams,

And SHE wouldn’t be YOU…

 

 

…..

This is unsatisfactory, but atleast I tried 😂😂
