Clockwork Precision





I woke up at past 8 in the morning and arrived at the office 3 hours late. Siyempre, diyahe kay Mami Athena now that she's grooming me for new responsibilities. Everything was already planned yesterday. Even the smallest details were accounted for. The problem was, I woke up feeling I had an extended vacation. I thought it was still Sunday. Kaya naman when I realized that the sun is already high, I called my supervisor to tell her I'm going to work.

She didn't answer my phone.

I was frantic on my way to the office. By the hour dapat ang timetable of accomplishments ko. Kaso tatlong oras na ang nawala sa akin. I don't have any backlogs, but I have to show some real output. Not to mention, there are looming deadlines outside of my day job.

I was able to deliver results within the first two hours kahit nung una eh hindi ako pinapansin ni bisor. I hope she was aware that I was trying to make up for my fuck-up. Hindi rin siya nakapagpigil eventually. Impressed by the quality of my work (sana) she sent a message over MSN.

"ok so this will be the first and last time" ofo lang ang nasagot ko with matching kowtow to the Patroness.

"u calling me when u woke up doesn't really make a difference, u know"  Kahit mag katalikod lang yung station namin eh talagang pakiramdam ko na abot hanggang rooftop ang kilay niya.

Truth is, I cannot promise anything. Sadyang hindi ako morning person but I have to keep my word or heads will surely roll. Besides, I cannot stand the chilly reception whenever I disappoint my mentor.

My skin is safe for now. Two more deliverable and I can finally take a breather. With a 1000-word article for Bentusi before sundown, a 2-hour workout at Eclipse and 40+ gifts needed to be wrapped before the 24th eh nakakapraning talaga. I do not know how to cram everything and still get enough sleep.

I know I'm quite good with time management. Para saan pa't nakapag-plano ako ng paraan para matapos yung Super Mario 3 while paying attention to our Christian Formation Program teacher in elementary. Magaling rin ako matulog sa sasakyan kaya masaya ako pag traffic. Pagdating ko sa destination eh hindi na ako tatamlay-tamlay.

Now that I'm done with blogging, (while holding off this drowsiness because its already past my nap time) I'm going back to work hoping to finish everything by 2 pm.

Hopefully, I can start working immediately on the raketship.


Jomanian Actual Timetable:

9:00a   Mugen arrives at the office. He was 3 hours late
1.00p   Final QA Analysis approved by the Patroness.  Day job output nominal
2.00p   Started working on the other project. Drunken bastards singing off-key at a videoke bar across the street interrupted his writing
5:30p   2-hour workout commenced behind schedule.
10:0p   Wrapped 6 gifts for Christmas.
12:2a   Finished 1000-word article for the raketship. 

6:00a   New cycle resumes by returning to the office.

Summary:  All goals accomplished.
