    Patricia

    Majority of my friends call me Trish, I guess you could call me that too. I'm a transcriptions editor with a really messed up body clock and never ending affinity for films, food and written words. I like street art, sweets, neutrals and monochromes, sushi, window seats, golf carts and lazy weekends.

    Some of the things that completely preoccupy me are my fixation with the now defunct The Civil Wars and their beautiful art of sadness, Oh Sehun, sleeping, CSS and HTML, @iameden, and those damn hypnotizing Tasty videos. Top country in my travel bucketlist? Iceland. But the one that will always have my heart? Hong Kong.

    Now, the big question.


    This has got to be the question most asked by my current colleagues.

    I remember the first day of our training day, our trainer asked us how our other colleagues would remember us by, and I answered I was the engineering graduate turned call center agent.

    I know most people perceive this as kind of lowering my standard or something to that effect but I honestly think, no. Not at all. TBH, I really didn't know what lead me to quit my chemical engineering ways (maybe I was burnt out, maybe it was not really what I wanted, and other excuses I have) but I knew that it wasn't for me anymore (I wish I was this brave in other aspects of my life). I find myself always looking forward to the weekend, and slowly, this certain feeling of dissatisfaction builds up until I wake up one morning and I've given up on work once again.


    Rewind: 2009. I quit my first job (which I truly loved except for some parts aka the pay and the benefits) and found myself wandering towards "greener" pasture. I applied at this well known semiconductors company in Laguna (referred by college friends) and was impressed by the pay, benefits plus the fact I get to work with friends! Then I found myself so ineffective because I hate dealing with a whole lot of people. Then the fact that we work 12 hours a day became an issue until I quit or more like, I disappeared. The last job I had was at a chemicals plant in Cavite (my shortest period of employment: 3 months) which I'd rather not discuss because some people may read this and I don't want to create trouble. Hehehe.

    Hello: Present. I am happy to say that I am happy. Sure, there were times that I thought, "Is this really it?" and I count the seconds until my shift is over. Sometimes, I think of my headset as a chain and I'm tied to my Avaya. I know I am happier. Happier with the environment, happier with the people surrounding me, happier with the pay, basically, happier with everything.

    Yay! The happiest people! WMM2!
    I can't say that I won't stay for a very long time. Maybe I will, maybe I won't. But I'm at a point right now where I do not feel an itch to update my resume and search for job openings at Job Street. And it really feels good. Somehow, I am contented.

    I hope everything stays this way for a long, long time. :)
