Next Monday I shall start working in my grade school alma mater, a lovely lovely school (albeit not a very big one) down South, called Regina Maria Montessori.
Actually, I was considered employed starting mid-April, when the school paid for my taking the two-week intensive Kodaly Summer Course. Yesterday being pay-day, I received my first paycheck, and promptly spent a considerable amount on the following: Starbucks Hazelnut Latte, Starbucks Oreo Cheesecake, a haircut (FINALLY! I've been dying of heat but had promised Mama not to cut my hair til after Univ.Grad, so she could fix it into a nice bun), and two pretty teacher-ish blouses. Haha! So much for not succumbing to the call of materialism. :)
I think I shall do more "succumbing" today, haha, my twin and I are going out with an old friend whom we only get to see twice a year, roughly, and we're going to meet in Serendra! *excited* I've only been to Fully Booked store, and there are so many! Hopefully I can exercise self-restraint and still have enough from my paycheck at the end of the gimmick to tide me over til the next payday.

I spent the past few days taking care of my papers for university clearance and getting the necessary documents for joining the work force.
I thought the UP enrollment pila was long.
Until I entered the NSO along East Ave.
And spent a whole afternoon getting my NBI Clearance at QC Hall.
Welcome to the real world, indeed! :)

Now I have an inkling of what CW majors (such as my twin) go through in every CW class.
For the first time in my life, I wrote something actually worth reading, something I could be proud of.
And now I know how it feels to have your work lambasted, insulted, spit upon... (see this page).
Oh well. You can't please everyone in the world.
Happy Labor Day, everyone!
