Even Chuck‘s very own Morgan Grimes and Jeffster feel happy for my being, drum roll please, EMPLOYED. (I shiver every time I say or type that word.) Starting tomorrow,  you’ll see me fastened to a PC and a desk or loitering around the ABS-CBN Newsroom, looking Natefused about being part of the working class. Now congratulate me. Who knew a schmuck like me could actually find a “job?”

No one. And that’s my point. HAHA.

Anyway, I think I am among the last people in our batch to have landed ourselves something to make money from. And if you calculate my deadline of looking for one just before the shows of the Fall parade to our doorstep, I think I was on time. Diba I spent the whole August doing nothing? (Tsk, excuses.)

As Maria Ressa exits the network (as my MCO orgmates joked last night, haha), I shall enter the field under ABS-CBN News Dot Com as an online writer. Beforehand, I’ve been replying “cameraman” when friends ask around what my job would be. They’d go SERIOUSLY??! And yes, all caps. I am actually thrilled to do the tasks that anticipate. My editor Sir Gani and my section supervisor are both spring-from-the-earth nice people. Right now, I really don’t care about the salary. I just want to savor the job.

Miss Cita though, my HR handler asked me if it was my first job. Yep, I assured her. “Swerte mo ha, una palang malaki na suweldo mo,” she recollected. She was kidding, of course. As if  people in the media really get paid well. Haha.

So obviously things are going down the throat smoothly. Especially with my mom recovering pretty fast, so thanks for the prayers guys! Assuming you do pray. On the other hand, I’m quite left out from all the TV show fad. I’ve missed White Collar, Gossip Girl, Glee, Merlin, Chuck and Mad Men. Is this the doom of employment? Err, anyhow I now have to concentrate on other more relevant things, like finding myself a cool “office” boho wardrobe. I’ll die if they won’t let me wear shorts in the place.

Even Serena is so happy for me! 🙂 (Pic Googled)

About barrycyrus

Hi, I'm Barry Viloria, 21 and not a blogger. I occasionally bitch about what's hot, what's not, what's life-threatening and what's Blake Lively wearing but I refuse to be called a "blogger." That's it.
