Callwork in FHM

Click to enlarge image

Okey okey I don't really buy FHM (duh?!) but Callwork: A Call Center Life and other indie comics are being featured in FHM for their February issue. I learned this last night in Gio Paredes blog, creator of kalayaan komiks. So I went downstairs to 7eleven to grab a copy. This book review is an unbiased review and never told us that they will be doing this article.

Interview with Students

A group of PUP students are making their thesis about the Philippine Komiks Industry. It is good to know that there are still a lot of young people who devotes their time in this study. Thanks for being part of your thesis. Thanks also for the free shirt!

Background checking

sorry guys... didn't have time to color this time.

Jeff: You wanted to rest? Just stop coming in for work.
Clover: What if I need to work again in a call center?
Jeff: Well.. you can apply again in another call center.
Clover: well, that's right! background checking is quite incompetent...
Jeff: or else how were you able to get in here? You were terminated in your previous company right?

Welcome 2009!

This 2008 has been once again a prosperous and successful year for me... just as God has promised. I am really thankful to God for always being there by my side, blessing the works of my hand. On the other side, there are challenges that had come and go. I was never a good writer and I still need to practice a lot as an artist. Being a single parent and holding a dual job, trying to find time just to doodle has been impossible. Art gifts that came from me would really mean that you are really someone special for me to do it. I was never a mathematician and statistician. In fact I almost failed my Managerial statistics subject back then. But now this is what I do in my job. Full of planning, analyzing, calculating. I love working alone and this is what callwork has given me - to be able to work just by myself. But I'm still holding people in my job. Mentoring, coaching, leading, monitoring, training, interviewing, terminating. If it wasn't for God, I wouldn't be able to to all this. In return, I try to do things for Him but sometimes the face of the devil is just there... staring at me.

I know this 2009 would be a drastic change. Drastic changes 'coz my husband wants me to go back to their house. That means giving up my job in Alabang. Four years ago (2005), I told my husband that I would want us to have our own house no matter where it is located, as long as it's only ours. I told him that I don't want marriage at that time. If he really wants to be together, just our own place would do. But he never listened to me and instead insisted on the marriage and worse, insisted on living in their house. Until now the story hasn't changed. He is still insisting to live in their house. Should I give up my job for this? Should the adjustment always come from me? John, a good friend, told me that he should be the one adjusting and living in my area since I am earning bigger and have a career to take care of. While Alex, another friend,told me that I should just not see him anymore since it just makes my life complicated. Grace, one my college friends, told me I should have ran away with her during my wedding. Moises, my new friend, told me he will bring me to Quiapo. LOLZ! On the other hand, Tetes and Lotis, my officemates, told me that I should prioritize my marriage before career. They said anyways, I can always go back to the industry and position whenever I wanted to given my experience. Cloyd, my seatmate, told me that I should avoid living with the in-laws and me and my husband should really try hard to find a place of our own.

Ah let me just forget the things I am facing right now and leave it to God. He always knows what it best for me. I know 2009 will be so much better than 2008!!! Yehey!!!So many more things to look forward!!!
