Major Drama!!

Today must have been the most interesting day at work!! After 3 weeks working with this company, who would have thought that they would witness so much drama! I felt as if I was in a movie!!

Haha..Lync & I were very happy that it was finally the weekend! That means we do not need to work tomorrow! Wearing jeans to work never felt better (FYI, on Fridays, we are allowed to go to office in casual wear)!

Anyways, as we were busy trying to pick up our sales..suddenly, the girl next to me got up and shouted..'Jess, stand up..U got to see this!! Hurry up!!'

I was busy calling a customer at that time but 'fortunately', the customer did not pick up the phone..So, being the busy-body that I am..I stood up and the scene that caught my eyes..Well, its 18PG folks!!

I saw a furious girl just waiting to pounce on a tomboy (a girl who pretend that she is a boy). At least 3 people were holding the girl back so that she doesn't throw a punch at the tomboy but she was so strong that she was able to escape from their clutches! The 3 people were not skinny lads..they were huge & muscular & until now, I'm still puzzled as to how the not-so-huge-&-muscular girl could still out-power the 3 guys!

Anyways, they were able to stop the fight and they requested the tomboy to leave and take the day off..The girl continued crying & many people were comforting her..I never really got as to why the fight broke out but..

No doubt it was very entertaining..but seriously, it was very un-professional of them..If they have personal issues, do not bring them to the office..Settle it before coming to work & if it is not so easily resolved..well, handle it on your own..there is no need to let everyone know!

The lesson for today is..

It is my second week working as a highest score is 2 sales but it is not good enough! I'm trying hard to get 3 sales but..well, I just hope that tomorrow I'll be able to break the record & get 5 sales!!

1 thing I realised during these 2 weeks is that..I may not be the highest-selling telemarketer nor am I the really capable of handling stress..but I know that GOD has a plan for me..HE has a reason as to why HE routed me to take up this job..HE has a reason as to why HE gave me the telemarketer position & not the QA position..

I'm not exactly sure as to what I'm supposed to learn but I do know that something is in store for me..I should take every passing day in my stride & never give up the fight even if, at times, I might feel sick & tired of waking up to go to work..

PAPA, whatever lesson YOU have planned out for me..Let YOUR will be done!

Welcome to the real world, JESS!!

I started working last week to earn some extra cash..extra cash for new clothes & accessories & for my trip with Susan. So, Lync recommended me to work with her for her uncle in a telemarketing company..I have to call a list of customers & convince them to buy our insurance..

I actually feel like I'm getting paid to be talkative! And I get to talk to random people & strike random conversations before getting the clients decline buying the insurance policy..REALLY FUN!! I mean seriously!

My parents have warned me that there are many bad people lurking around in the corners just waiting to pounce on me..but truthfully, I've never really bumped into these kind of people! (Thank GOD!!) So, I tend to see the good in people..I mean, I do dislike certain people in my life, but I don't LOATHE them & totally distance myself from them..

When, I started working, I got to meet many characters..then, I began doubting as to whether I was a true city gal..Though, I was brought up & raised in the city, I have always had the mentality of a 'kampung' gal..

I have this thinking that our current generation - meaning my generation of youth is the corrupted generation..we here many cases of child abuse, dumping new-born in the rubbish get the picture!

But, after working, I just realised that the previous generation aren't really saints..In fact, they are not anywhere close to being saints! They use vulgar words which make my ear bleed! I see mothers smoke (what kind of example are they setting for their children??)! And everyone wants to see their fall..

It gets better..most of them are from rural areas..and they have only been in the city for a couple of years or so..and they shedded their rural skin & replaced it with 'urban' skin!

What I'm saying is..people have this misconception that city people are immoral but the truth is the city is filled with 'migrants' who assume that that is how we 'city people' live..guess what! stop assuming! We are people with high morale & self-respect & give priority to our customs & traditions..We love who we are & do not conform to the world!

Because HE Lives!!

In death, HE conquered death..
Rising again, HE gave us new life..
This is the day when darkness turns to light..
the day when sinners rise up and repent..
the day when evil is defeated and truth prevails..
the day when we can hope that no matter what happens
everything is taken cared of..
And everything is going to be fine..
Because HE lives!!

See the World thro' MY eyes..

It is truly a miracle that even a technologically-challenged person like me can own her own blog!! Oh well..miracles happen right?? is a funny thing to have a blog is like writing in a diary but a diary entry that you want people to read..WOW..that means, now, I've to write 2 versions of version which can be read by those reading this blod..and the other, only visible to me!!

My name is Jessmine by the way..but i would prefer to be called Princess Jessmine..yup, I'm off royal blood..well, MY PAPA is the King of all KINGS..and since I'm HIS daughter..I'm a PRINCESS!!

Well, I like to think of myself as someone who likes to see the glass as half full when others are beginning to give up..Hence the title of my blog..I would like to invite more people to see things the way I see it and..well, spread the hope and joy the LORD, My GOD has given me..At times, I might be flawed with my human weaknesses but I hope that I will be more Christ-like in the way I see this world..AMEN..
