New place, new life.

It was not easy moving out of our home back in Laguna. When I was packing my stuff, my eyes were teary and I am already missing the place even before I left. But I said to myself that this is another opportunity for me to grow as a person. So, here I am typing this blog in my new home in Batangas. I am just renting the house. I cannot explain the feeling that I got when I first stepped into the house. It's like a mixture of excitement and fear. Excited to start anew but I fear the unknown. This is the first time that I will be away from everything that I've grown up with. But as the president of our company told me and 2 other guys that were with me that day during training that this is the start when we will discover a lot of new things about ourselves--our capabilities. I think he's right. As soon as I got out of the comforts of my previous home, there was nothing to protect me from the realities of life. Now, I have to fend for myself and my future family.

Here's a photo of my home away from home.

The house is twice as big and the lot is thrice as big compared to our home in Laguna. I'm really blessed to have found this place. Big thanks to my friend Jimmy!

Job title: Territory Manager

Oh, yes! I finally signed with the pharmaceutical company last Monday and been going around my "will-be" territory. I will be replacing Cindy because she is resigning with our company and her last day will be this coming Monday. So, I had to spend the whole week with her so that she can introduce me to our customers. The job is not as hard as I thought it would be but it requires me to travel a lot at relocate as well. So, I am moving further south--away from Manila. There is also a lot of paperwork to be done on weekends. I was told that I will soon get the hang of it. Good thing that my boss is a real nice guy. Im supposed to be somewhere else today but it was canceled because of the nasty weather. So on Monday, I will meet up with Cindy again, in the office, to update the files in my computer and work out the best schedule for me with consideration to where I will relocate. I am afraid that I will not be able to blog as much as before but I will try my best to update and post pictures of things that I encounter wherever I may be. I will be covering the southern tagalog region so there should be a lot of stuff to see. See you guys! =)

first week of training.

hello guys! I've been undergoing training with the company that I chose--for 3 days now. I must say that it's not easy but a real challenge. I had to study stuff and practice speaking since I will be dealing with other professionals. I am having a hard time probing then "acknowledging" and then "bridging". It takes some time for my mind to process and say the best choice of words. I just hope that I don't get left behind. Soon, I will be revealing what job it is. If I pass the training, that is.
