Who would think that I could be this active with online paying site named Bubblews? I joined it because my brother's been asking me to make articles for him and I was curious with how this site is helping him get extra cash. So instead of making articles for him, I made an account for myself but had used James' name instead. I just thought it might be safer that way so the readers will think that it's a he rather than a she who’s posting those things there. Well, I still ended up making articles under my name though and it looks fine since the site is a democratic one. You can post anything from diary-like articles to news to tutorials and the like.
The site would only require you to post an article which has at least 400 characters and you're good to go but I prefer making articles which aren't short. The truth is that I like my post to contain 300 words and above with specific photos. Photographs have something with them which attracts readers you know.
While I was still working and I go on long vacations in my home town in Bohol, the first five days make me very busy catching up with what I missed about my birth place. Mom and I with family talk about everything and anything under the sun, I request foods which I haven't eaten for awhile, play around with my niece and catch up with some childhood friends. This is the usual trend, most of the time I would miss some of the lists here because of time shortage however right now, because I am on an indefinite vacation and since I am on my seventh day, I have already done almost all of the normal things I do. I am starting to feel idle and want to really work, in a couple of weeks from now I will be out of budget and that scares me but thanks to Candy Crush, it makes me busy these past days.
For the benefit of those who don't know what Candy Crush is, it is actually a Facebook game, it is played by matching three or more candies while completing the given task, a player is given maximum of five lives and if you lost all the given lives, you can request for friends, earn a life by viewing an advertisement or simply wait for the life to add up after a few minutes. The rules seem to be simple but the catch here’s that the level of the challenges increase on each stage. There's a road map of the challenges and honestly speaking, I still don't know where it leads, maybe there's a pot of gold at the end of it, that I'm not sure yet but all I know is that I want to reach that point. Unfortunately, I am stuck at level 33 at this point, all I need is to clear all the jellies, sounds pretty fine but I am stuck here for already a day. This is the longest time I took to clear a single stage though, it makes me want to quit. Well, the main reason I am writing this is because I am tired of asking lives from my friends. I guess I have to rest and will play again after an hour.
Gladly surprised – this is what I felt when I learned that Google had sent me my first ever $101 cash out from my adsense account. My personal blog, www.jeanbeltran.info has been running since 2010, in fact, we’ll be celebrating its 3rd anniversary this April 30, and my first blog post was kinda silly though, it was all about me, my history and my pledge to make an online diary religiously but I never thought of earning anything from the site. It served as my memory lane and as I have said, diary - a virtual one that when a certain time comes and I feel like nostalgic, I can go back and back read the previous posts I had published to reminisce my life’s experiences.
Because I had resigned from my call center job and bored, I thought about checking my Google adsense earnings, the last time I went checking on it, I had like $90 that was January I guess of this year. I never really do SEO stuff or any optimization thing because again, this just served as my plain diary.

This Korean Drama revolves around the story of two totally different high school students who eventually complemented each other and ended up falling to each other's arms.
Oh Ha Ni, is just a normal student, she isn't good at anything except that she is persistent and optimistic about something she likes. On the contrary, Baek Sueng-jo is a man who knows all, he is the top one student in their campus. While he is good at his grades, he has a not so good attitude especially to those students whom he refers as "dumb".
Their first encounter was when Baek Sueng-jo bought a drink from a vending machine and Oh Ha Ni helped him get the stuck drink by kicking the machine.
By that time, Oh Ha Ni got the guts to send him a love letter which was then ignored by Baek Sueng-jo , instead he rated it as D- and corrected some wrong grammars on the letter. He somehow returned it to Oh Ha Ni and had insulted her in front of a crowd.

Am now counting the days until I official bid goodbye to the first company which I worked for, my first job after graduation and my first ever call center experience. It has been almost four years and I never regret being here, I have nothing to compare it to but I had unforgettable memories and experiences in this company. Working for two accounts had helped me see more of the world and had enhanced my skills.
I cannot contain my happiness when I got hired last May 11, 2009. As a fresh graduate, I have no work experience except for my OJT especially about the BPO world. All I knew at that time was I need to get a job, while others may see call center job isn't good, I never thought about it negatively, I believed it was a blessing.
I started supporting a product I learned to know when I was in grade school - Palm. When it was introduced to us during the signing of contract, I remembered the handheld I saw when a missionary came to our province before. I got excited that I will be handling customers owning those types of gadgets. I thought it was really cool.
My wave mates were also cool, we developed this type of friendship within us and though some of them we had parted ways now, some still remained until this day. After a year, I shed a tear when our original teams with my wavemates as my team mates were distributed to different groups, that was the starting point and I soon had learned that in the call center world, change is inevitable.
