Status Update

Posted on 06 February 2016 by Flisha

Today I’ve got extra time on my hands. My fiance being in Calapan and all. So what do I talk about, hmm?

Let’s talk about work. I just got an e-mail from my fellow team lead forwarding a heated exchange between two of our direct reports (both working on call this weekend). The girl (mine) was very angry because the guy (not mine) did not do his job of being the primary on call, which led to the girl having to do all the work last night (which she wasn’t supposed to). The girl made accusations about the guy slacking and worse, dropped some personal comments about his work ethic, and worst, copied my fellow team lead in. She did NOT cc me. She probably knew I would not take that e-mail of hers very well.

Headache!!! The tension at work is escalating by the day, and I’m starting to wonder if I did the right thing jumping into this company.

When I came in all seemed good and well – on the surface. Unbeknownst to me, tensions were already rising. I was hired into the first account of my IT company. There is now a new account in the company – which should have been great news to everyone. However, this account has been pirating resources from the first account! In the six months that I’ve been in the team, 5 have already been pirated into the new account! With 1 person resigning the company and 1 performing so poorly he will NOT be renewed (see above), this leaves our team crippled with only 3 remaining resources (by March). 3 resources and 2 team leads, how ridiculous!

The morale in the team has been very low these past few weeks, with so many people leaving and taking their expertise away with them. This shouldn’t have happened, not in a mature company. A resource should not be able to perform an internal transfer without the consent of his/her manager. But that’s not the way it works here and I don’t know why the upper management has allowed this to happen.

Oh and did I mention there’s a freeze hire??? Ah, yes.

So what will become of our team? Stay tuned…


Thinking of Piano

Posted on 02 February 2016 by Flisha

The older I get, the longer my bucket list gets. One of the things I have been so eager to take up lately is piano. Do you think at my age I could still be apiano beginner?

Everyday I walk along the street where I work and there is this big music store where they sell all kinds of instruments. Guitars, drums, keyboards. And then there’s this beautiful grand piano in the corner display, and it just makes me long to be able to play it.

One of these days, I will definitely take some lessons. :)


My Golden Age of Domesticity

Posted on 02 February 2016 by Flisha

I’m a girl in my early thirties and you know what excites me these days? Household things! Like carpets, wet wipes, tables, cabinets and 48 inch Drawer slides.

Yep, my priorities have definitely changed. The 31st of January was a great big sale day. Things were at 70% off! I spent a great deal on shoes (I bought 4 pairs!!) and walked around the malls all day. Yet, at the end of the day, I spent more on groceries, pillows and floor rugs. Hahahaha!

I am at the golden age of domesticity!
