life in agonizing slow-mo

Shame on you for giving me this much grief. I've been half-dead these past weeks, trying to figure out the reasons for your heartless actions. And the strange thing is, I still have enough energy to love you and absorb the hurt as much as I can. But don't expect me to readily obliterate all thoughts on what you've done and how you've failed me.

a new lease in life

Last November 2006, I resigned from my post as PR account manager (a job I've been handling for five years) and entered UNICEF as a fundraising assistant in the private sector fundraising unit, specifically handling direct mail campaigns.

Finally, I've achieved one of my life-long dreams. (Okay, maybe it's not a life-long dream, but working for UNICEF Philippines is something that I've always wanted to do when I became old enough to work.)

Needless to say, life becomes more significant when one is working to improve the living conditions of underprivileged Filipino children. Work keeps me very busy and at times stressed, but at the end of the day, I know I'm loads happier raising funds for children than slaving away at some corporation.

And the icing on the cake, really, is being able to work with a wonderful group of people.
