July 4 week

summer time is when you really miss the college yrs, coz u can choose how to use ur time for 4 whole months! ironically, this summer is the busiest for work so far. having most teammates with family & kids, i have to plan my vacation around others.

with July 3 being on Mon, only 1 guy in our group didn't take the 3rd off. all our workload just flooded over unexpectedly, with our client being very proactive in certain job. it was frustrating to be in the office on Wed and try to sort out what happened, fighting the way back to being in the loop of things again. glad today is Fri, where i can take things a bit slower again.

the fun of design

there's fun and mundane part of every job. mine, for now, is fun and frustration though...

fun: learning new things, tools, processes, and working with nice ppl. being able to be exploring into new possibilities with certain constraints can be fun.

frustration: the possibilities of exploring into new designs can also be frustration when the constraints doesn't go your way. but then again, if everything's so easy, they wouldn't need to hire you, right?

a week of class

would you prefer to sit for 8 hrs to learn? or 8 hrs to work?

i did learn a lot, and it was fun to be in San Diego for a week, however, being paid for school is not as fun as i thought. i had a good time of learning and playing nonetheless.

now back to working full time...

busy busy

hi hi,
been busy ever since i decided to go to the design group. we have huge issues that needs to be solved. i've been working tons of OT. it's hard work, but i'm learning a lot.

my delimma these days is to balance work and personal lives. it's gradually becoming one - personal life is going out the door. i need a breather.

thankfully, i'm going off to a class next week, so that'll give me a week of vacation time...kinda.

later

my move

so i'm starting my "new job" today. officially it's new, but it's all the same to me. well, still learn new stuff, but i still have stuff from the old job that incorporates into the new stuff. so it keeps snow balling into a bigger chunk, and i don't foresee myself having less OT than already is.

good side: taking every opportunity to learn, which helps you grow both personally and technically.
bad side: working more and more, feeling like ur married to the company.

oh well, i can't stand myself from staying put mentally, so i guess hard work's the way to go...

my fear...public speaking!

and so i'm being back-tracked and trained as a new hire engr. a bunch of us are having all day trainings every Tue and Thurs for 3 weeks. now that i'm out of the office at least 2 days a week, i'm swamped with the old job and the new job that's starting next Fri. today's supposed to be my day off, but i'm sitting in my cube, trying to catch up.

being totally clueless about what i need to do for the new assignment, i'm already having due date by the end of the month.

for the old assignment, i'm taking over a change as the owner of it. it only makes sense to have me being the owner of that paperwork, since it actually belongs to the new group i'm going to. however, the most fearful (or one of the) thing that i realized is...i have to present! not only to my group, but possibly to the chief engr!! i never like to do public speaking, and i get all nervous and shaky. sigh...but the ppl in my old group just said the same thing to me,"if you want to be a good engr, u have to learn how to present."
