Moving Out, Moving Up and Moving On

I've finally decided to keep all my thoughts in one repository in the web. Aside from the fact that I am THAT lazy to update a single blog site, cost-wise, it is not also a good idea maintaining two sites when you're not writing anything in them anyways. haha. so yeah, I'm keeping this site www.wandergirl.me as it is. I will miss that neat blog though. Although Blogger has been my home for years now, Wordpress still has a lot of things I prefer over Blogger. But yeah, no need to mention them now.

I decided to write not just about travels but about anything and everything. My blog, Kwentong Karenderya at iba pang Kwentong Walang Kwenta translates to Stories from Karenderya, and other worthless stories. Or something like that. Karenderya is a type of restaurant in the Philippines which are mostly along the busy areas and streets. It usually serves a lot of Filipino dishes with the masses as its target market. Food being sold in karenderyas are relatively cheap, dishes that are normally being cooked at home. Nothing fancy. Sometimes, even risky, as there are karenderyas whose food preparation are unsanitary. Think about gastroenteritis, diphteria, diarrhea etc. But people take risks. I guess it's human nature. Ahaha.

So why Karenderya? It began with wordplay -- my name being Karen. Then later on, I realized my blog could actually be just like the karenderya-- a mixture of everything I could think of. It is something close to home because I share experiences that one can easily relate to. It can even make you feel sick -- of how I write and what I write about. But ultimately, you take risks -- of being entertained, or being sick. Or maybe both. :)

I am towards the last leg of my project for my Managerial regularization and things aren't working out as planned. My project, instead of getting better went out of hand. I'd say being the project leader, I too have a lot to learn from this experience. Too bad it happened right now when my regularization is at stake.

In a week's time, I'd find out if I get to keep the job or I go back to where I was.
I'm not sure if the stars, my stars are listening right now to my heart. But I sure hope they are.

Like I said, it will just be a week from now to find out if I will get to keep this post.
But immediately, I started getting over it, accepting that I was flawed and probably did not deserve that.
I will stick to what we have planned in the beginning and work on it until the very end. This project may not be as successful as I, we, envisioned it to be but I owe it to the people who helped through the dirty work. I owe it to them so I will fight it until the very end.

And my heart says, I want this badly. So I will have it no matter what.
