Changes Schmanges

OHAI there, I’m back on track!

It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve been hired and I’m still adjusting to my new office here in Makati. I’m still in the process of “fixing myself” in my new office as the ONLY internet marketer in this company.

from the 6-day work to the late morning schedule to the numerous additions to my usual work task to adjusting on using a Mac and to be working independently without having any help with anyone in my field. I need to rely on my own self when it comes to waking up for work and adjusting to the stressful 6-day shift. And in addition, I need to widen my SEO skills,to harness my writing prowess and to learn more about Social Media and ORM, something that is very new to my field.  I usually do linkbuilding and off-page SEO primarily for work in my previous companies, and to work with the SMM and ORM is something that is very new to me.

I also need to familiarize myself in using my office Macbook Air, and I’m happy that it’s more faster than any of the Windows 7 desktop PC/laptops that I previously used.

what stresses me out is the fact that I need to work from Mondays to Saturdays. I’ve no complaints on doing the SEO/SMM/ORM thing myself but having only a day to set my mind off to work and recharge is simply not enough to make myself back on track for work. 6-day work week = less runs, less “me” time, no love life! /lesigh

As much as I wanna quit and sleep my ass off for the whole day just like in my freelance days, I’d rather have this for now. It’s holiday season and I need to save up for my future plans, and hopefully pursue my masteral classes for next year.

I still have high hopes to my office. I just hope that they could hear me (or rather, us employees who are also working in a 6-day work week) in our plea.

But for now, I’m happy that I got to get along with the people here. I’m looking forward for more lasting relationships, opportunity to grow, adapting to changes and many more.
