Maybe I wasn’t meant to do accounts

If ever there is a person who sorely lacks the skills to smooch on a REALLY difficult client, I think it would be me. I am really known for having no patience when dealing with the stupid things that clients usually ask for. And unfortunately, I tend to lose my sanity and composure especially during…

Your taste of vitriol for the day

Remember my new job? Remember how upbeat and hopeful I was a good three weeks ago? Remember how I said I found my calling? …and that the people were good? Well, erase all of that. ALL OF THAT. Well, three weeks seemed like last year, or about a decade ago. Right now– it was like…

Fake it till ye make it!

W.W.B.W.D? (what would Blair Waldorf do?)

These past few weeks, I’ve been entirely acting like a drowned rat that’s been too miserable to even save my life. A lot of shitty things have been happening to me this past few weeks and alone in my room, I have come to realize that I have been acting like a loser whining endlessly…

Friends…not officemates

As mentioned before, I have been working to close to ten years now. Out of those ten years, I was employed in about eight companies. Out of these companies, it didn’t really mattered if I stayed for a year or three years (the longest) but I still managed to find people who I came to…
