Reruns

March 31, 2010

I watched a rerun of Ally McBeal last night. It was the episode where Billy Thomas died. If you haven’t seen Ally McBeal at all, then you have missed a huge part of your life. I can remember the days when their episodes made me feel like I was going through Ally’s heartache myself. If you’ve never heard about Ally McBeal, well, let me give you a vague idea.

Ally McBeal is this quirky and smart lawyer who is still single. The love of her life is Billy Thomas. They separated when they went to different law schools. When they saw each other again, Billy was already married to Georgia. What’s more was that the three of them had to work in the same law firm. Together with their friends, Richard Fish, John Cage, Nel Porter, Elaine, and Ling, Ally, Georgia, and Billy faced the ups and downs, the loves and hates of their lives. Unfortunately, Billy was suddenly diagnosed with brain tumor. The tumor was so progressive that he lost his life while he was doing his closing in the courtroom.

There was just so much sadness with the series. Yes, they had comedic moments, but underneath all that comic and laughter, the show was generally a sad one. It was the kind of show that did not leave you with a good feeling at the end of every episode. Before there was Grey’s Anatomy, Ally McBeal reigned over heartbreaks and weird circumstances. I still wish Ally and Billy had a better ending. But, like any other thing in life, we don’t always get the happy ending we all hope for.

Seriously…

March 30, 2010

I have always wanted to try multi-blogging. The idea of maintaining more than one blog is exciting. It also poses a challenge. Can I actually do it if I multi-blog? Right now, I have two blogs; one of them is not yet live. Can I actually get away if I create a third blog? Honestly, I think I can. It’s just that I don’t know anything else to blog about. My second blog was an easy idea because I already have a lot of poems to post on it. But a third blog? Well, what else can I possibly blog about?

I guess then that I just have to keep two blogs for now. It is already multi-blogging because I have more than one blog. But this is a lot easier. The blog awards that I received are poking me in the ribs, wanting to be posted up. Unfortunately, I do not have much time to blog today. I am currently trying to oversee the training of three smart ladies who will start taking calls on Friday. I have to give them a lot of time. Until next time. 🙂

Not so Manic…

March 29, 2010

I am currently trying to be busy with a new blog. No, I am not leaving WordPress. I just created a second blog where I am going to post all the poems I have ever written. People who are into photography create photoblogs to post their pictures. I follow one or two photoblogs myself. However, I feel like I should also create my own poetry blog. I have loved writing since I was about 12. I want to compile everything in one blog. It’s going to be a riot, I am sure, and by riot, I don’t mean it in a good way.

I have written at least 200 poems. Posting them all in one blog is sure to make a mess out of things. I am willing to take a risk, though. I will just have to find a way to arrange things, create pages, links, and widgets to make things easier to access and more fun to read through. As of now, the blog is still private because it is still under maintenance. I am going to keep this blog here because this is chronicles my entire life. The poetry blog will serve as one facet out of the many that I have. When the site is ready, I will surely invite you all to visit.

I have not been asked to work on a Monday morning for a while now. I have always had my work scheduled on afternoons. This week is a different story, though. I have to train three girls for a new campaign. This is my second week with the girls. I am glad for Mondays, even if they may be manic most of the time. I will probably be posting another blog entry later today. I hope so.

Tearful Rhapsody

March 28, 2010

I look at you now, and I just know
That the time has come to let you go.

We loved each other the best we knew how,
But all the love in the world is not enough now.

The ring that once bound two people together
Now feels like cold metal, built to smother.

The bed that once seemed like a world so big
Is now too small for two different worlds to fit.

The nights that were spent in each other’s embrace
Are now just nights that pud an end to days.

The mornings that were always shiny and bright
Are just days that end up as a really cold night.

The hearts that once beat with a love so real
Are now homes to wounds that never seem to heal.

The touch that once burned with all the fiery passion
Is now a touch that hurts, a touch with no emotion.

The eyes that used to see only each other
Now flow with tears that couldn’t fall any faster.

So now, my love, I am finally setting you free;
I’ll never have the courage to say these things to thee.

I am writing this letter as my apology
And my thanks for the love you’ve given me.

No other woman can ever love her man
The way I did. I loved you the best I can.

And no other heart can break like mine does now;
No other person can cry as much as I had done now.

Maybe we will, one day, see each other again,
But until then, we know that this is the end.

Warm Hugs and Cheek Kisses

March 27, 2010

I had late lunch with my girlfriends today. I haven’t seen them for a while now. What’s more was that this was the first time that we were complete. We used to meet up for lunch every now and then, one or two would always fail to make it. Today, however, even Fay, who was the one who always missed out on meet ups, was able to join us. I miss these girls so much.

We all met three years ago, when I joined TeleTech. Ever since then, we have always clicked. We eventually split up, leading our own lives. Leah was already with the OSC while the rest of us remained as agents. The next person who moved on was Fay. She joined the ACE team just shortly before Ynez joined the QA Team. After that, Honey resigned from TeleTech. I joined the ACE Team around May 2008, and Alex also left TeleTech shortly after.

It is amazing how much can happen after months of not seeing each other. Now, we all have very good lives. Leah and Ynez are now mommies. Honey is now with Convergys. Alex is an SME in Etelecare, and Leah is still very successful with the OSC. As for me, well, you know what I am now, and it’s something that I surprisingly love doing. All I can say is that I am happy with where we all are now. I am sure that the future holds so much more in store for us.

I Could Not Ask For More

Never

March 25, 2010

Nevermore will I senses hear
The joyous ring of your laughter
That rings in my ears, so clear.
They are gone forever and after.

Never where will I again see
The sun that shines so bright.
The warmth that surrounds me,
The star that brings me light.

Never will I feel my heart
Skip a beat or beat twice as fast
It now feels so torn apart
Seconds, eternities, seem to last

Never will rose’s sweet scent
Linger in my memory disturbingly
All of my energy, I have spent
Forgetting, But, succeeding, unlikely.

Nevermore shall I my tongue taste
Sweet love that used to be there
All your memory has been erased
Never to be remembered never where.

This is my poem for today’s poet’s rally. I hope you guys enjoyed reading it. The idea just suddenly came into me while I was talking about Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere with my friend. Enjoy… xoxo

I am also going to nominate one poet for the perfect poet award from Jingle. This is week 11. I have been joining the rally for more than a month now. I like it; I enjoy it. My nomination this week goes to: Trisha… Please visit her by following this link: http://mydomainpvt.wordpress.com

Tripping

March 24, 2010

I have always loved the music of Imogen Heap, Dido, and Tracy Chapman. However, I just recently realized that I also love Sia, Feist, A Fine Frenzy, Jewel, Amy Winehouse, and Carla Bruni. Yes, I may not understand her songs that well, but I still like them. I like listening to them because they actually act like “downers” for me. When I am in need of a little cooling down or relaxation, I listen to their music. It works like a charm. They calm my nerves. I have never been into the pop music genre. It’s not that I don’t like pop music. I’m really just more into the un-popular music. Ones that may not really be that mainstream, but they match my personality so well. If you have time, you can check them out too. Enjoy! *wink*

Level Up

March 23, 2010

A few days ago, I started reading about poetry. I write poems, and I have written at least a little more than 200. But I did not really excel so much in being able to define everything technical about poetry. For me, poetry was a way of expressing the most raw emotions. It was a way of release, and outlet where I could say anything I want to say, where I could paint the pictures that I never could do so with visual arts.

However, I decided to really go out of my comfort zone and become more technical in writing. I cannot just write about MY feelings forever. I also have to write about so many things that exist on this earth. This drive is the one responsible for my goal in being more than just a writer. I want to really comprehend other writers too. Yes, poetry is open to its reader’s interpretation. But the appreciation of poetry can only be grasped by those who also write with discipline. Right now, I am just a little more than a tabula rasa. I still need to leran so many things, so I can call myself a pretty picture of colorful knowledge and expertise.

I know that I can writer. But I would feel so much better and more fulfilled if I also know the correct manner of writing. My father used to be my biggest critic. Now, I am doing his job for himself. I need to be more than I what I now. I need to improve. 🙂

Flooring

March 22, 2010

Today is another Monday, another start of the week. Today begins another five days of working nine hours from 5pm until 2am. I am not complaining that I have to work. In fact, I am a million times thankful that I have work. I am thankful because I can do so many things. I like the many things that I can d. Not very many people can say that these days.

I am watching Wowowee right now. I haven’t watched this for weeks now. They are currently featuring call center agents in their game, Willie of Fortune.I can remember when the BPO industry was fairly new to the Philippines. I want to commend the call center agents because they are the ones who do the dirty work. They take the calls, make the calls, and deal with their metrics. They do the harder part of satisfying the customers and delivering the numbers.

When I worked as an ACE Coach, I realized just how difficult my life used to be when I was still an agent. Now that I am a trainer, I always try to make things light and easy for agents. I want them to enjoy training before they hit the hard road to production floor. I will always treasure the lessons I learned when I was still an agent. I am so thankful that I am one of the few people who got to graduate from being an agent. To all call center agents out there, you can make a career out of this industry. With enough luck, hard work and dedication, you can definitely find your niche and be more than just what you are right now. *wink*
