This week is the real test of the things to come, one thing is for sure, I have to change the way it was planned. I have never studied a single lesson. I need to get my life back. Bring me back my dorm. And the sad fact is, I cannot continue with my cell because of this things. the guilt in me starting to take its toll.  I really have to attend a session.

The NEC will be having its first pictorial together and I am so excited. What will my co NEC will look like. Thank goodness, I confirm the studio in Philcoa where we are supposed to meet and where our photos will be taken. They dont have a studio there? Wierd!?

My parents brought my things in the lab, at around 8pm with guess what.. A new car. Wow, cant believe it! We have a new car it is a Honda car. And we test drive it, it is so cool. Here is a photo of our car…

Honda 1.5 MT

I want to go home to try this off, one more time..:)

I have to see Helen for the payment of the poste I made for ACM. All the hassle just to get to her. Wow! Time management, very very important. I wanted to attend Circuit’s GA, but I was enticed by Roy to attend EE’s GA for the hope of getting hold of a pizza slice. But we end up attending Sir Wali’s class without the pizza. O well, thats life. For the future EE students. Kudos!

What I really like to do is to perform in front of the freshies, the skit that is done my Circuit yearly, sad to note that I wasn’t able to be apart of it this time around. I exchange this idea, with meeting Nice to give the money collected through the water refilling station. This formally ends my term and also my connection to Yakal.. huhu.. I will miss that dorm. Damn it!  I planned to go to SM, mainly because I wanted to have a new shoes and acad stuffs. Thanks heaven and the money just poured right in front of me and it was only 66%  of the total that I would be getting. WHOA! I bought a pair of shoes, I planning to buy another one though. Bought a shirt, just then and there, because I thought that the cash coupon can be used for the clothes, but no, you have to have a minimum purchase of 500 just to avail of the Cash Coupon.

And other surprises still awaits me. Hay! I hope these would be a great one! Good Luck to me!

First Test of Survival

This is IT!

Start of the hurdles to come, it began last June 12, start of classes, and still I don’t have a place to go to. Thank GOD, my lab welcomed me with open arms. I am so happy, nice comfy home I should say. Nice lab mates, airconditioned rooms, 24 hours internet access. I else could I ask for. But still, I still love my dorm. I miss dorm life. I miss the people whom I begin to treasure.

Anyway, there I dont think I could stay here throughout the sem. I still want a decent place to stay, something I can call mine.

This week is a truly test of what is in store for me for the upcoming sem. Wahh! And as a matter of fact, I am now getting tired of this busy lifestyle. Aside from the fact that I was evicted to my second home-Yakal. The feeling of taking the subbject you once failed, it haunts me, an dit haunts me bad. I wish I could get out of this soon.

Some of the things I wish I could have done this week:

1. Get the CampLB pictures from Daina, only to find out that Moi has a copy of the pics. Thanks Daina *grin*

2. Email JI and SIM for the supposed PSYSC feature to their paper.

3. Meet Maam Vicky, I think she is busy though.

Things that I did this week:

1. Met Jo for the BASIC and PENNY for the CATALYST. And have lunch with them at the same time. That’s so nice!

2. Met Steph, and she showed us their little room, it so tiny.

3. Met Kuya Gabs for the website, we aggreed to finish it by July. Yehey! I really hope that it would be finish by that time. *fingers-crossed*

4. Attended EXECOMM meeting ng Inhinyero, EASL meeting ng ESC representing ACM, first GA of out term. That was  a lot! Wow.. WAH I getting scared. really It freaks me that I have many things to do! wah!

5. Tom, meeting ng SAs sa CC, tapos NEC meeting. Hay! *buntong hininga*

Well basically thats it! What a week I should say. With the grace of God, I can do this! 🙂

Till next blogging day! I hope I can find time to blog! Wish me luck!

P.S.

I finished my driving lesson, way way long ago. And I dont know why, it is kinda addicting. I feel like, I want to drive every car in town. hehe.. There is this thing inside me that makes me imagine the position of the feet to the clutch, brake and gas pedals. 🙂

I dont understand this, I have been doing crunches for several months now and still I have those fats inside me.. hehe.. Especially on my abdominal part. Don’t I have the right for a lean body. hehe.. Besides, I am goping out with my Berckts. hehe.. I like them to see what I have been working on for the last 3 months? hehe.. 🙂 O well maybe I should stop drinking, those PSY people are doing this to me!! NO. hehe.. Infairness I agree with Juju, you are the one making your destiny and nobody even an ORG BI you, ultimately it will all boil down to what did you do, you own little actions that caused this. hehe. Some realization I just now realized. 🙂

Wow, from not having lean tummy to PSY. hehe.

Anyway, Accenture Educational Program recently concluded with a feast. I will surely miss those guys. *sniff* *sniff* Lace, paupload ng pic, hehe as if she can read this blog. And I hope no one does. hehe.. Sobrang thankful talaga ako sa SUGARRUSH team ang dami kong natutunan sa kanila, Alex, hindi kita malilimutan PERIOD! Kasi naman sobrnag galing. In every sense of the word! k KAKACH na kakwentuha ko the whole time na may seating arrangement na, sobrnag nakakamiss ung mga kulitan namin. hehe.. Nakakmiss tuloy, hehe. Naging crush ko pla siya for quite some time.. 🙂 Kila JONNEE, sa kakatype ng username at password niya. Kay CLA at ang kanyang mga LOST moments. k SUGAR at ang kanyang mga stress moments. K GRACE, the ever silent type. Ang galing talaga ng team na to! 🙂 Saya, syempre ung iba ko rin mga naging friends ko, ung mga BROKEBACK guys, hehe (MARIUS – leader, FRANCIS, MATT, LEM at LJ) Nakakmiss ung mga librehan sa BONI station.

Excited na ako mamaya sa aming bonding moment, sa MOA. Buti na lang malapit lang sa aking home!

Nakakmiss ung ESC ewan ko ba naging attach ako dun sobra, narealize ko na siguro dahil un alng ung hinandle ko un, I mean walang kasabay. Di katulad nung fourth year, kasabay ung Circuit at ung Yakal. GRabeng experience un… Ayoko na sanang maulit un ngayon pero ewan ko ba. hehe…;)

Anyway maguupload ako ng mga pictures galing sa phone ko. magaayos na ako ng mga files ko.. Hay! Panibagong year, panibagong outlook in life. hehe.. Eto na naman ako.. hehe.. 🙂

Wahh it so good to be back in UP, I feel secure. Back to business na ko mamaya.. 🙂

I hate this day. I woke up early in the morning to fix my self up and be ready for the day ahead but to my dismay my brother is not up yet! ArG! He should be the example of a good brother right? He should stand up and ready the breakfast for us but no he kept on asleep! The dogs are so hungry because it is past breakfast already and was not doing anything. I on the other is doing all of these things:

1. Do the laundry – I do not know where Manang’s house is located.
2. Water the plants – ok, I guess he would ask me to do this but no, he does not even think of taking actions to tell me to water them, get my point?
3. Do household chores – wtf? he has not done a thing! Ang KAPAL ng mukha!! GOD!
4. Cook rice and lunch – he is so DAMN LAZY and I realy hate it, the fact the he said last night that “I am baby sitting someone tom.” Hello, he has done a thing!! I so hate it!
5. Feed the dogs – wtf? I am so tired last night and I still fed the dogs. So , what is his reason now!

I just so hate him! There si no sense of calling him “KUYA” in every sense of it. He is so DAMN lazy!!!! And so insensitive, what is his problem? I did everything in the house. I sometimes think that I live alone, and I really think that way. Where is he? hehe.. I am laughing now because of all this. I wrote an entry because of the thing he do, or should i say that things that he is NOT doing! hehe..

Sidenote: I now know how to cook SPAM, yep you heard me right. I love the SPAM I cook, it is so crunchy, I like it. And I discovered something new! I use the plate to coer my eyes from the cooking oil bursting out of the pan.

I just hope that he return back to his boarding house, I cannot stand another meal with him! I hope he do this right NOW!!! please!

Bilisan mo! Gutom na ako!” So insensitive….



What’s Up?

Currently I have been in OJT and I am somewhat liking it. hehe.. I’ve been hired in Accenture last April 23 and since then there’s this feeling of looking forward for another day working with the wonderful people around me. I really liked the team that I am part of, I really believe that we make through this with an ACE.. Go SUGARRUSH! I really do not have any idea of what career path I am going to take right now. I hope GOD has a good one in store for me. Oppurtunies to suddenly show up in front of me. I really like to apply what I have learned in my 5-6? years in college, but it faith leads me to a different path. Let’s just see.. I must say I miss UP life! Posting my first day experience one of these days.. 🙂

I celebrated my Birthday this year differently. Mom cooked her specialty last May 1 and that’s it. Usual birthday greetings and that is it. Denise called, that’s something new. My coworkers didn’t sing a song for me. I have known someone with the same birthday as I have. Francis, love of life ni KAT.. 🙂 Celebrated some of it at Burgoo with Ate JO… Turn over ceremony of sort. I like the food there, but Oh NO! That is someking of expensive for me, an ordinary Student Assistant.. 🙂

What is now? Recently, just this morning, a meeting with Sir Feria for the ACM plans this year. And my God they are so many. That’s why EXTE members HELP!! hehe.. And this no mere exageration. This is for real, I guess my plans for CS standing this year will be no more than a DREAM. I hope not! I really want to prove something.. 🙂  And this afternoon a meeting with NEC.. huhu and to make matters worst, a meeting this evening – with Sir Alex. What a DAY! I hope that everything will work out fine.

 And yes I almost forgot. My family went swimming at Majayjay. I am enjoying really my not enrolling this summer. 🙂 Here are the pictures!

Plans for the next months. Plan the projects to come. And just do well with everything that comes my path. And am glad with the daily routine I am having now, I usually wake up early and do few repetitions of crunches to build up those ABS. hehe.. In time for CSIW R&R.. 🙂 Looking forward for my PAY this coming May 15..:) And I’ll be learning how to drive, can’t wait for that one. 🙂

Wish me LUCK!



AEP Day 1
April 23, 2007, 10:03 pm
Filed under: Life in general

My OJT formally started this day! I woke up as early as 4:30 to fix myself for the ahead. The dilis and eggplant still lingers my tongue. Delicious… I leave th house at around 6:00 am with a different route in mind. I believe this should be the fastest way to PIONEER from Bacoor, but Mom says the other way around. So back to the original route – van – mrt – walk.. 🙂

I arrived just in time early in fact, but my shyness contained me and I just didn’t have the courage to go inside and wait for someone I know. hehe.. I waited long before I have the courage to go in. Surrender my ID and have a Visitors pass. In the line I saw Kat, hesisitant at first to greet her but thank God she is still the COOL Kat I know, hehehe. She waited for my to get my ID and we went to seventh floor together. Thank you! extend my thanks to her Mapuan friends. 🙂

Then it started, Sir Gleen introduced himself until it is our time to introduce. err.. HS? College? kids? hehe.. But Sir Gleen told us that working with Accenture introducing to everyone is an SOP. hehe.. okay! 🙂

I am Rafael Soriano, ahmm currently taking EE at UP-Diliman, I am 20 but acts like 18…. hehe..

We then began to discussed the 6 core values Accenture people should have. Let me enumerate them for you!
1. Best People
2. Stewardship
3. Integrity
4. One Global Network
5. Client Value
6. Respect
I remembered them correctly. I hope.. hehe…

We had our lunch, and Vanie didn’t invite me to join her. huhu. sad. I guess you really have to rely on your PR skills to go with other group. Kat welcomed me with opened hands with Mapuan friends we ate at Tokyo Tokyo, this should I say have broken a record. I had my 4 cups of rice for the first time here. A really historical feat for me. 🙂 We walked then suddenly we saw some of our SLC mates. hehe. NICE! Helloooo… And unfortunately something came up with Kat, and we have to return to the room ASAP, whatever it is Kat, your secret is safe with me. hehe..

Continue with the discussion but before that, we played Charades, wahh!! I should say both teams are good. We correctly guessed the words. For my part -> HIMALA, wtf? how should I act this thing! waah, Thank God, someone guessed it, or else I will be the one that caused trouble to our group, and that is not FUN. 🙂

Before the session ends, we were grouped into 6, each with the tasked to recreate a scene that would feature one of the 6 Core Values. And thank God, we picked Best People, and the ideas were great, and I should say the acting as well.. hehe.. “BEST PEOPLE” Kristine suggests that we have to utter only one word. Good thing, no memorization! Very good indeed! What we did is we recreate a scene of a new Project Manager(Me – BEST PEOPLE), with the assigned task that he cannot handle thanks to Project Lead(ACCENTURE). He seeks help with his mentor (CAN DO). The mentor shows him to his team mate that can help him to finish the work assigned (JAVA, .NET and COBOL) This is beautifully done with any practice. Nice Job! hehehe..:)

Kate leaves the room, still uttering the words we mentioned. One of the experiences I will cherish. hehe.. 🙂 Looking for a new exciting day ahead. 🙂

This sem would be my happiest.  I should say, no failing grades (I hope!)  The sem I get to know God like ever before. The sem where you would really enjoy WORKING.. Wow, I would love to thank my council and execomm mates. You have been a blessing to me and it is really good working with you guys. I wish I could just say these words to you, face to face. hehe.. God Bless for a great future ahead. Some innovations I see. First Ydolos, first Electronic Votation in Yakal WoW!.. hehe. I am just so happy.

Another thing that I am so happy about, is the people showing up to me just to say thank you,  for all that I have done for them. AHH! 🙂 First stop, Krishna. She has a problem with her exams in ME 63, and I am just thankful that God really worked for me there. I taught her, and she passed ME. WoW. That is why she treated for a breakfast.. Good!! 🙂 Secondly Daryl, Circuit member, I actually really don’t know what I did to him but hey, he thanked for the him being exempted in EEE 23 and 35. Smart boy.. 🙂

Wahh.. Wow, this sem was such a blast that I would not take any summer if work wouldn’t let me.. 🙂  I’m just so happy. First time that my sem finished when the sem really ends, gets? HEHE.. I really thank God for all of this. I just hope that next academic year would be something wonderful. Thanks!!! 🙂
