Numbers ‚Ȇ Empty

What do you believe in?

Or should I be asking myself that?

Sometimes I wonder that myself but if I have to name it, it’ll be spiritualism. I don’t really have a religion I follow. Doesn’t mean that I don’t believe in everything else either. I believe that everything exists– or did exist at some point in history. I mean, there are stories about it so they must have some kind of origin.

Today, I want to write about numerology. Well.. MY numerology. Since I always get confuse about myself sometimes or most of the times. I mean, I always need constant reminders of who I am since I have a short attention span. And when I read things about myself, like numerology and horoscopes, I feel like I’m a contradiction.

So I’m a number 6. And they’re like these kind and self-sacrificing people except according to my soul urge (which is a number 8) power, status, and success is VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. Which I relate to them both. But it makes it hard for me to decide which one it is that I want cause you know, they’re both so dominant. Now that I think about it, I actually go back and forth into a nice person and then a mean one. Kinda like having a angel and a devil on my shoulders telling me what to do. Sounds familiar if I ask you to guess my western horoscope?

YEAH. This perfectly describes a Gemini AND I AM A GEMINI. I can only shake my head.. like literally. I confuse my own brain too since my emotions get in the way of what’s supposed to be logical. SAD LIFE.

Anyway, aside from that crazy almost didn’t mix TOO well combination, my life path number is a 9. And OMG where do I begin? Well, it says I have a dramatic energy/flair with a abundance of strong engraved feelings. Which is so true cause… I get so flared up when I talk about things that matters to me. NOW IMAGINE ME WITH THAT ENERGY WITH THE COMPASSIONATE HEART THAT LITERALLY CRAVES POWER.

Am I crazy to think that I’m actually crazy?

Or does this combo bode well for me? My mind can’t really seem to wrap across it still. And let me tell you, I go read this once every other quarterly to a half year or so. AND I AM AT A QUARTERLY LIFE CRISIS RIGHT NOW AND WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING?! I guess look at my numerology was one of them. HAHAHAHA.

Recently, I’ve been applying for jobs left and right for the past year. And nothing really jumps out at me. Maybe besides the ones that wants me to work right away and burn all bridges (which I will never do unless I solely hate that company), I have these unsettling feelings. And sometimes I get these anxiety that comes out of nowhere. I’d like to think I’m crazy. And also that I don’t want to work there. Or that it’s not my calling. OR SOMETHING. Because every time I have these anxiety that is just waiting to pounce on me more, I decline the interview.

You just read that right?

Maybe I just suck. I really hope that I suck at these things because I don’t really want to lean over me being crazy. Yet.

Anyway, apparently my profession aligns closely to my personality and wants. Or somewhere near there. I’ve sought tarot readers (i.e. MY SISTER) and my boss (he’s a psychic) and I don’t know what to do. That’s also my problem, I can’t decide anything and stick with it. Such a typical Gemini. Oh wait, was that my Cancer side instead? (Yeah, I was born around the time Cancer was rising so my sister keeps calling me Half Gemini.) Well whatever really, I just feel lost. Like everyone else. My life isn’t hard. Not THAT hard anyway. I struggle along with everyone else too, although we may not struggle the same thing but… we all struggle in our own paths. And that helps me endure these empty feelings in order to get past these problems.

Huh, maybe my numerology is right about me..


I also wonder if recruiters looks at numerology too? Maybe not. It’s too much of a far-fetched thing to do. I mean, I WOULD DO IT but that’s just me. I’ll never land a HR job so I think I should stay away from that. Or try to from now on. They never to give me a chance. I LACK TOO MUCH EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYTHING.

I should start on what experiences and passions I have already huh?


What do you think?

First blog post: A Normal Typical Day. Maybe?

Today has been an interesting day. First off, I did NOT plan on doing this. But thinking about it now I actually do like the idea of “ranting” my daily life (maybe) and at the same time, maybe I can get some thoughts on things to come also. SUCH AS TODAY.

Honestly, where do I even start?

Well, let’s just say I work hard. At least I would like to believe so because my work ethics are pretty good. Or maybe I’m just saying this to make myself look better but whatever. I don’t know and I don’t really care. All I know is that even after working hard and smart, just thinking about this situation baffles me! Please tell me that I’m crazy or at least… well, crazy.

Here’s the story: we had an impossible mission. The team that I work with is REALLY small and my boss– well, everyone higher than us– is expecting this 5 man team (technically¬†three because we’re the only ones certified from start to end) to make at least 700 units (or catheters) AND pack these things in NOT EVEN 10 DAYS. So my boss decided to ask another department to help final pack since… we have a final packers group who were certified to that same processes. And they helped roughly not even half of the total orders. It’s great though, the help I mean. We don’t normally work Fridays but we did. And on that Friday we suffered pretty bad. Calibration went out of date and well, it slowed us down. Three of us were assembling and two of us were packing two orders of 116 units. BY OURSELVES. AND MAKING THE BOXES ARE A KILLER. (Speaking of which, one of the managers tried folding it a couple months back but failed and almost cussed because it was too much work. Quite a cute sight really) So anyway, we finished packing and went back inside to pouch and OMG, I think we’re all just drained. Forty hours plus these extra ten hours just drained us. Like literally, we were robot zombies. Or maybe zombies that are androids by the end of the day? Not too sure but anyway, Monday rolled around and we were trying to get back into gear of WORK HARD DIE HARD and GUESS WHAT??!

They decided we didn’t need 700 units.


WE MADE MORE THAN ENOUGH. All we needed was 600 or so.

SO WHAT DID WE DO? We just blamed it on our luck because we always have bad luck. OR THE WORST LUCK FOR ANY DEPARTMENT IN THAT COMPANY. We seriously blame that on our department’s name. It’s too bad, we can’t change it. YET.

So after push comes to shove, we got a reward–AFTER ASKING FOR IT FOR SO MANY TIMES. Well, I didn’t ask for it. My colleague did. He’s a very straight forward kind of guy but he’s not really professional (but then again, who actually takes Operators/Assemblers seriously?) and he can be such a kid about it (given the fact that he’s not even 24 yet really makes him such a kid, right?). ANYWAY, so we got a reward finally and my boss asked us to think about a reward that we wanted. We gave them a list of “keep dreaming” but hey, they were want we all wanted. And they were affordable or even attainable enough for this small team. It’s what we would appreciate if they could meet our expectations as to how we met theirs but what did we get?

YEAH. You guessed it.

The boss said it wasn’t even possible because what we asked were just too IMPOSSIBLE and all she could do is give us a luncheon.

REALLY? So if we are asking for a short weekend vacation is too much for you? CONSIDERING YOU MADE US WORK UNNECESSARILY HARD TO OUR DEATHS (metaphorically) and want us to continue to meet your expectations? Well, that’s fine with me but give us some credit beside food because we don’t need or want food especially you planned for something that YOU KNEW WAS NOT POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF YOUR POOR PLANNING. Don’t make us your scapegoats or your punching bags. This team has worked too hard for these past years just to make sure that everything is fine and dandy but YOUR INABILITY TO CARE about the job only worsen and made our jobs worst. At the least you could do is TRY like how we TRIED to meet your expectations. Where’s the mutual respect? I guess assemblers are just dirt to you right? I guess since we’re dirt we can take our time on it right? I mean, this small team is just not worth it right? Because otherwise, you would think differently right?

Nah, I guess we’ll just keep dreaming for the day you realize you’re getting nowhere also. I doubt we’ll make mistakes nor will we purposely sabotage the company. If anything, it should be the people and not the company since humans are the ones running, not the name. Oh how I wish that was true. Sometimes anyway.

We work our butts off to the maximum because you guys couldn’t do your jobs correctly? We told you that our raw inventory were low MONTHS ago and yes, it’s not your fault for thinking that it wouldn’t be here on time like a year later BUT IF IT WAS MONTHS AGO, you don’t think you should own up to it because you know… IT WAS MONTHS AGO. We did our best and a luncheon was the BEST that you could do for us? Gee thanks for thinking highly of our efforts and time managing everything else on the line due to your carelessness.. boss.

Like seriously, who takes assemblers seriously nowadays? Yeah, we’re easily replaceable and it’s easy to train and blah blah blah, we don’t need to be taken seriously right?

Yeah well you know, although that may be the case but you also need to realize that without us how can those stupid units have been packed and reach the quota that YOU screwed up on? This team has always tried their best and had the best performance and the least problems compared to all of the other departments but HEY, what do I know? I’m just a operator that is easily replaceable. WELL… LIFE GOES ON.

I must be crazy to think that we’re equals. I mean if there are no difference to humans and we’re all created equally, then I guess job positions with salary or whatever are NOT created equally. In all honest truth, we all face this probably more than once in our lives and I’m sure we don’t like that or would want that. Yet these things happen merely because they have authority in the company. And money is power. Oh wait, I thought it was knowledge that gives you power. Hmm I guess it’s both. Which ones do we have? Definitely not the money. Well, I don’t have the money so it’s really whatever. I’m tired of working for a boss that only sticks to the book AND could care less about how her workers feel. It’s fine if you care about work but when someone or ANYBODY expresses their concerns and feelings to you, are you really going to just sit there and pretend nothing happened?

Yeah, those people irks me to no end.
