This was the first time that I made it getting up early than those past days. I was really sleepless resulting to be slothful waking up every morning. And not only that, I must admit that I really don’t like rising up early, the best time for me would be 10:00 am. The rooster tone always keeps alarming should I stay my eyes closed and I just snoozed it so I’ll have few more minutes dozing. So today I arrived in the office early, it’s domino effect right?
FEPS or the clock in my pc was the first thing I did, opened and replied emails was next and of course checking my yahoo personal mail, typical start of a working person. Let me include persons from the team where I belong. Since we are working on numbers specifically money, we have to stay focused to what we are doing. Diligence, eyes into details and keenness are always observed as we need to carefully account each figures, it’s not like just creating a post like this where grammars sometimes is not perfect, we are getting our stipend in exchange of the ardor we give for the company.
I was hired eight months ago, never did I imagine that my interaction with my officemates especially with my teammates would be awesome. During my first day, I really was reluctant whether or not employees in there will like me, it is my first Manila-based job though, I am a probinsyana of Southern Luzon specifically of Tiaong, Quezon. As days wane, I started knowing each of them (though not all, expect that snobbish people are ubiquitous). Now I can say that we really are working as one.
And there goes my introduction (lols)! I actually would like to share (aside from waking up in the morning) that working with my team is fun, we have different personalities, but despite of that, when we hear the word fun, it really means fun, as in giggle, laughter as in lols that calls the attentions of all employees around, we can never avert that, just trying to make our job fun, job as Accountants and Senior Accountants, they may choose not to do so if they want wrinkles grow in their face.
Work as usual; keyboards pressing as we were typing, wee chatting while working (proves how multi-tasker we are), laughing as Leo and Joseph were joking, walking mile-long door (and when you left it ajar, it will create annoying noise – tototototototot) to get the print outs, others donning headsets as they are regaled by music, that’s how we are. After performing our due diligence working and focusing (we’re focused) on all the reports; reconciliations, payables, intercompany, journal entries, prepaids and sales and use tax, we decided to take our break, it was perhaps approximately 4pm, just so when our supervisor arrived. Joseph took the initiative and asked us to go downstairs (no, not by the ladder, we are situated at 8F) and have merienda in McDo, just located at ground floor. We joined him then, but we went first to SM Hypermarket and bought chichas to nibble and Real Leaf tea to break the ice when we go back to work. Finished buying at SMHypermarket, and we went to McDo. What to expect but a noisy group inside the fast foodchain that called the attention of people around, and we did not mind them, what we wanted was fun and relaxation.
Languid after eating due to incessant chuckles, still aiming to fully unwind and refresh our mind and feelings, we went by the seaside (we’re beside MOA by the way) and felt the strong wind blowing our hair. We brought the real leaf tea as we walked and sat in front of the Starbucks Coffee. Joseph wasn’t there any more, he went ahead back to the office, so we had girl’s talk while drinking Real Leaf tea.
It refreshed our feelings and helped us in our relaxation and unwinding moment. Never feeling exhausted anymore, wide smiles were painted in our faces as we chatted anything and everything. We decided to go back to the office after wee minutes of relaxation. Real leaf tea made the moment more refreshing and fun, it brought back our zest and energy 🙂
Being part of CSG Utah Accounting Support team is one of the euphoric things that I must be thankful with. Working with my teammates Leo Solis, Joseph Guillermo, Leo Bueza, Mara Isidro, Karen Allasas, Dina Surigao, Rebecca Malanao, Divina Morales (may I include Dhina Lieva lols) supervise by Arnel Casauay is immeasurable. Proud to be your teammates guys!!!
And I just opine, sometimes we need to go out, explore and look beyond what we normally see every day. Sometimes we have to bring out the childish hearts we have, learn to mingle and be gregarious with people around us. Mind not what others may say, it’s none of their business though, take each moment of our lives special. We don’t need to just work, work, work and forget oneselves, we must also take work with fun, fun, fun and relax, unwind as we maintain our professionalism with childish hearts at times. And don’t forget to bring Real Leaf tea guys, it’s 100% real leaf tea, good for our health, “it’s gonna be good.” I always drink this, it keeps me energized all the time!
