Okay, itong post na 'to ay hindi dahil malapit na ang Valentines. Depressed ako hindi dahil magba-valentines at wala akong jowa. Depressed ako sa kadahilanang nareject na naman ako for the third time sa job application.

Oo, job application. Job application kasi naghahanap ako ng bagong malilipatan. Kailangan makahanap ng bagong work para sa ekonomiya. Lovelife ko makulay pero ang career growth ko di na tumangkad. Iniisip ko kung matutupad ko pa ba yung 1 million in a 30 ko kung ako heto at stuck sa matagal ko ng trabaho. Ang hirap kapag patanda ka ng patanda, dumadami na obligations saka ang priorities nag-iiba.

Naisip ko bakit ganun? Sa una okay naman pero pagdating sa final interview sumasablay. Ano bang pagkukulang ko? Ano bang mali ko? Tingin ko naman nasagot ko lahat, at my best possible answers. 
Sana lahat ng company na inapplyan ko at nireject ako eh binibigyan ako ng reason kung bakit nila ako di tinanggap. Parang pag-ibig lang eh, diba pag nakikipagbreak ka, kailangan mo ng closure?
Kailangan mo malaman kung saan ka nagkamali, kung alin kailangan mo iimprove para next time di mo na uulitin. Pero oo nga pala, hindi lahat ng breakups ay may closure. So bakit ko ieexpect na bibigyan nila ako ng reason for my failure?

Binigay ko naman ang best effort ko during the hiring process pero bakit di ako matanggap-tanggap?
Attitude ko ba ang problem? Hindi ba ako presentable enough? Hindi ba ako lovable? Minsan iniisip ko, tama pa bang maghanap ako kung meron naman na ako? Kailangan ko pa bang tumingin sa iba kung sa sariling company ko naman eh meron naman ibang opportunities? 

Sana...sana pagbigyan na ako ni Lord, sana bigyan nya ako ng sign, sign kung bakit hanggang ngayon
nandito pa rin ako. Sana makahanap na ako ng bagong work, sana...sana may flowers akong matanggap sa boyfriend ko this Valentines.

The Maya Kitchen Experience

Last Saturday (January 31), my sister and I went to The Maya Kitchen to take their chocolate making class. Prior to the saturday class, she already registered a week before. Even though I have already an idea of what we'll be doing, I decided to join her. While waiting for the class to start, a lady asked us if we are planning to do some business that's why we are there.Well, we are not really planning it yet but it's nice to do something else for that weekend and hey, Valentines is coming so need to think something as a giveaway.

Anyway, we were only few in the class, less than 10. Most of us are either moms or working ladies. Our instructor was Ms. Roxanne, she's been with the industry for decades already and I'm happy to know that even though this is only a chocolate making class, they still put an experienced instructor to teach us.
