Change for the better

One of the activities in our company for the month of May is the Performance Appraisal.  During this time, the bosses assess each associate’s performances on the first half of the year.  And the rating that we’ll achieve on our PA will somehow affect the mid-year bonus that we’ll be getting the next month.
I could say that it’s has been a disappointing first semester for me. Firstly, my tardiness counter was continuously going up.  I even reached the limit where I’ll be receiving a verbal warning! It was alarming, and I had to remind myself that I should do some adjusting. Go back to my usual routines. And wag ng magpapa-BI, as much as possible. Haha! kidding.
Secondly, my body clock was a disaster.  I’m always sleepy whenever I go to work… and during meetings and trainings, I was crazy sleepy.  Sometimes, I end up not understanding anything about the discussion (note: sometimes).  And there’s no one to blame but me… oh, and also the creators of facebook.
Lastly, I lost my focus on my current project.  Not that I didn’t understand the whole thing.  It’s just that I didn’t get the feeling that I really know this project by heart.  I didn’t feel my connection, my passion in this project.  But I still did my best, I think.
So, when the time arrived that they’re informing me about my PA rating, I knew it.  I expected that it would go down again.  And true enough; it was my lowest PA rating so far.  And it’s all about the “Initiative”.
Aside from the fact that I did a huge blunder in the project that affected some of my co-members, they said that I don’t have that “initiative” thing in me.  As a DE2, they expected a lot from me/us.  Of course, after that level, we’ll be the next officers in the group.  So they really expected a lot, and I disappointed them.  Being initiative is really a big problem of me.  I’m afraid of volunteering because I’m afraid of not doing the task right.  Self-confidence it is.  But I’m only like this when I know that I don’t have the full knowledge about the task.   I can still raise my hand and assign myself on the task when I know that I can perform it well, I think.
My bosses were really alarmed with what’s happening to me.  They asked me what are my problems, and I said the things I wrote up there ^ .  I explained these things, and they accepted it.  I said that I’d go back to my old me on the next months, and do my best on the next projects or tasks.
The only thing that saddens me right now is that I feel that I lost their trusts in me.  It seems like they think that I’m not capable anymore of doing a task quickly’c something like that.  And I really can’t blame them.  I feel the envy with my fellow batch mates who are doing well right now, but I’m turning this envy into inspiration.
I’ll try my best to be at their level, to be more active, to meet their expectations, and to be more focused.  Hopefully… It’s not too late.

Last Night

twilight movie premiere tickets + oracare on the side

twilight movie premiere tickets + oracare on the side

Lots of things happened last night (11/25/08).  Lots of first time for me.
So let me just blog it in!

But before i go there, let me just share what happened earlier that day. As usual, i start my morning with Chico and Delle and Chico’s apple eating (lolz).  Then during lunch time I hurriedly went to SM to buy an enclosure for my HDD, good thing I came back earlier as expected, kaya ayun nakakain pa ako.  And then a shocking but very fantastic decision was made: Liz will give her spare ticket of twilight to ME! whoootwoot.. Ayun, naaligaga na ako sa office.. tinapos ko lahat ng dapat tapusin para hindi muna mag-OT.  Nagpaalam ako agad sa Boss ko na pass muna ako sa OT and pinayagan naman ako, and that was awesome!.. and so, my first times that night are:

– first time kong mareceive ang Performance Appraisal ko. Paalis na ako ng office nang pinigilan pa ako ng isa kong Boss para idiscuss yung PA ko. And super happy naman that i got a high rating! woot.. ang pinakacommon na comment sa akin ng mga Bosses eh “Take time and Review” hehe.. ambilis ko kasi gumawa, pero madalas may mga code miss ako.. kya ayun, take time.. take time..

– first time kong makapasok sa Robinson’s Galleria. Yup. Yung sa Manila palang kasi yung napupuntahan ko.  @Galle: okay lang, hindi naman sya ganun kalaki..

– first time kong maka-attend ng Monster Movie premiere ng RX.. waaah ang saya ng pakiramdam hehe

– first time to meet in person “the legendary”, the apple of the eye and nose and lips and every part of the body of Manay Geee, the one and only, Jose De Vengenge!!! (oha ang haba ng intro hehe.. )

– first time to see Twilight (siempre)

– first time to eat KFC Snack Box (courtesy of Bullet: Thank you!!)

hindi ko talaga inakala na makakanood ako sa premiere.. kung alam ko lang, pumili sana ako ng mas okay na office clothes.. hehe.. THANKS THANKS THANKS!!!

Anong petsa na!?
