How did I ever End Up in Sales?

Hello Gorgeous Readers!

 

My apologies for being under the radar for quite some time. I’ve quite busy for the first 15 days of the month. Come to think of it, I’m busy still. But I finally had the time to write today since my schedule is 3pm to 11pm.

By the way, I’m working under sales now. My gosh, the sound of the word ‘sales’ echo in my head.

7 years ago, I had a big argument with my parents. I was a freshman in college taking up accountancy. The idea of sales did not appeal to me one bit. I hated math. I hated counting a string of numbers on an on, everyday.

I was very stubborn then. I knew what I wanted. I wanted out of that program. But I had no valid reason to give up on accountancy… unless, I fail. On the day of the final exam for two major accounting subjects, I submitted the test papers blank. The only thing I wrote on it was my name. Then, I trashed my calculator.

I felt rebelliously proud then; but I feel bad thinking about it now.

My parents were really disappointed at me for failing two major subjects. They finally let me shift course to bachelor of arts in English.

Honestly, I don’t regret choosing AB English over BS Accountancy. I guess it was just my means of getting what I wanted that… well… kind of makes me feel disappointed of myself.

Sales

Well, as crazy as it sounds, 7 years later, I’m working under sales. I don’t know where life will lead me next; but like my co-worker used to say… “we just have to excel”

  1. Hi hun , have missed you and wondered where you were. Hope you've been well. I can relate to how you much you hate numbers and accounting, same here. I also chose not to study in the Acc field because my passion is writing. I think it was the best thing to do, because you have studied what you love and what you're passionate about.
    Good luck with sales!

My Speech as a Guest Speaker

Hello Gorgeous Reader!Last March 28, 2014 , I got the rare opportunity to give a speech at the graduation ceremony of my alma mater KM5 now named Fr. William F. Masterson S.J. elementary school.So a little back story. I gave a speech on my own graduation way back year 2000 and it was miserable. I was very sick that day, I even passed out at school before the program. I was there because I volunteered to help with the preparation stuff. During the program I was puking, the world was spinning and I felt so cold. They had me seated while I gave my speech and well, I cried. But I knew I had the best of friends then because my classmates cried with me. Although I know that some of my batch-mates are far more successful than I am and thus more credible to give a speech; I didn’t think twice and said ‘yes’ to my former teacher’s invite. After all, not everyone gets a shot at redemption. (shoutout: *Thank you very much Sir Janeo for the opportunity.*)Okay, so here’s the speech that I gave. It…

Pamamanhikan: A Filipino Tradition

Hello Gorgeous Reader!This is actually an over due blog post. I’ve written a previous draft on this weeks ago but for some reason my computer decided to delete all my drafts. Now I’m forced to rewrite this blog or technically write a new one.Last April first my fiancé went to my residence to formally ask for my hand in marriage from my parents. This is a tradition among Filipinos called “Pamamanhikan”.We’ve been talking about having each other’s parents meet after the engagement. Our first option was to take them out for dinner. But we kind of hesitated over the idea because it would be super awkward to talk about our marriage plans with other people eavesdropping on us at a restaurant. Alas, it was my fiancé’s trusted league of merry-men (a.k.a his workmates) who convinced him to do it the traditional way. That is, to go to my house with his parents and family members bringing food. It was a great idea since it would be the best venue for our families to meet so that the wedding itse…

How to Get Married: Legal Requirements

Hello Gorgeous Reader!NOTE: Please be informed that this blog is based on Cagayan de Oro City requirements. The process for other places may vary and is beyond my jurisdiction. @_@For a marriage to be called valid or legally binding; it must be registered/recorded at the government branch called Civil Registrar. It is basically the logbook of our government. The legality of a marriage has many purposes such as civil, financial,  health benefits, and many more.Below are the steps to get your “Marriage License”.STEP 1Find someone who is willing to marry you. This someone must not be currently within a marriage or ‘free to marry’. Note that there is no divorce in the Phils. Even if that person has been living separately from his/her spouse for longer than 10 years he/she is still considered married by law unless his/her wife/husband is already dead. This person must also be of legal age (18 years old and above). If either of you are within 18-21 years old; you are required to present an …
