Groovy Baby!

scribbled at 2:37 PM | August 4, 2006 | in the bedroom

I've been down in the dumps for the last 2 weeks. I got my paycheck and realized that July wasn't my month this year. I broke my no-absence-ever record at work. I got a relatively low pay because of the lack of bonus, a lot of leaves/absences and disappointing QA scores. I guess I was not as passionate as some people expected. But I guess I needed that stumble on the way to help me sort out my priorities.

Let's just say that this is an attempt to gain a new perspective of my job. I still admit that the job I have, albeit well-paying, is just a necessity for me and not an enjoyment. Since I made the decision, I realized I'll be staying in this line of work for an indefinite period of time. Don't get me wrong, I don't wanna grow old here. I still plan to pursue further studies if or when I can, but since I'll be stuck staying here, I have to make the most out of it.

The first week of this month so far has been good. I just hope the effect of this "regaining composure" would last for as long as I need it. I have to get my groove back and start saving up because I really, really want that Nokia 6233 and hopefully a couple of Westlife (yes, the lovable lads from that Irish boy band!) concert tickets!

If you know how to score free Westlife tickets, please inform me. I would love to watch them again. My sister and I haven't missed a single concert and I don't wanna change that. But the tickets are really pricey... Thanks in advance!

Westlife? Are they still a band? I haven't heard from them in ages! I like Nicky and Kian! So cute!!!!!

~*galenlondeien*~ said...

They are still a band, minus Bryan of course. They released their latest album, "Face to Face" last year if I'm not mistaken. Haven't even bought that. Geez... I'm embarrassed to call myself a fan. =(

Hello Karen..Ü
I hope August's a better month. There are those days when you just feel like slacking off, like it's a right or a privilege, haha. Cheers. Happy Friday!
