Conquering Dumaguete


I had quit my job in the cement factory last August of 2007 – that means that I had already been working for almost 2 years in Dumaguete. Hold on! August is almost here…the people at work are really going to be happy ๐Ÿ˜€ Meanwhile, Bobby had been working in Bayawan since December 2005 – that’s about 3 years and 5 months of being in Bayawan.

Where is this leading? Well, Bobby will be assigned in Dumaguete starting tomorrow – yay! We are not really going to “conquer” Dumaguete but we are surely going to love being here…as if we were away for long, huh?

I had been trying to apply for a job at NFA – the salary is almost the same with the one I am receiving now but with 5 days of work and other government-related work conditions.

However,

1) I have no wish to work as chemist as of this moment,

2) the hiring is urgent and I am not free of my obligations at work until August,

3) the job encompasses slots for Dumaguete, Siquijor, Cebu, and Bohol – ooops, I quit my Cebu job to be in Dumaguete, I am not going to quit my current job only to be assigned somewhere else, thank you!,

4) I’m really thinking of just staying at home – doing freelance work and being a full time house manager aka housewife,

5) We are going to be house-building starting September and someone has to be there and work on the papers,

6) I’m concerned about the trend of the illnesses that I am having these days,

7) Success is relative, remember? and

8) I want to have more time for myself, Bobby, and vacation ๐Ÿ˜€

Therefore, Bobby andย I decided that I will not pursue the NFA angle – which, incidentally, requires that I take the examination and interview at Cebu this Tuesday. No, when I quit, I wouldn’t care if a new job is waiting for me or not – this is for me and my hubby, this is to allow us to have a lot of time for each other and for our upcoming house project.

Where does this lead, again? Time will tell, really ๐Ÿ™‚ but I surely am going to start waking up later than when I usually do these days ๐Ÿ˜€ And the house project pictures are going to come out soon. Whether I quit or not, Bobby and I are still going to “conquer” Dumaguete. Be there!

  1. success may be relative, but it is NOT arbitrary.

    in other words, one cannot define on its own what success should be.

    that is off topic, but i just can’t resist…

    anyway, time to panic about this swine flu thing.

  2. Whatever you say, brother mike LOL Don’t forget the that swine flu thing is already in Australia and the Philippines…ooopss

  3. tayo ay huwag mabahala sa mga swine flu na iyan. ang tunay na pananampalataya ang siyang nagbibigay sa atin ng lakas ng loob upang mapigilan ang paglganap ng trangkaso at iba’t ibang sakit.

  4. ๐Ÿ™‚ You must have been vaccinated before going there, huh?
