Update Update!

Gosh… Call center training can be really draining. Obviously, this is the main reason why I wasn’t active in the blogosphere this past 2 days. Well, to keep you updated, here is what happened. ^_^

My first day was so-so. To be honest, it was a bit boring since all we discussed was about the house rules and regulations. We did some activities, and there was this one about drawing a pig activity, which shows your personality through your drawing. So anyways, we have a 30-minute coffee break and a 1-hour “lunch break” (it’s in quotations since we take our so-called lunch at around 4AM). I didn’t know that there would be 2 breaks, so I was forced to spend for my lunch food (I only brought a sandwich that time).

We talked about the US – their map, their culture, and their time zones. We had a text the next day with a blank US map, wherein we put there the States and their abbreviations. I felt weird that I already memorized it, but I do not know my own map. LOL!!!

For the second day, as I’ve said a while ago, we took a blank US map test, then we discussed about the nosebleeding, headaching, tenses (please be reminded that we took up the dreaded perfect and perfect progressive tenses >_____< ), and the prepositions (I hate them, really.). I was never good in English. Not to mention we did essay writing! YIKES! You know what? I just thought of it as an OPP. He. He. He. So that I would at least have something to make me want to write, but of course passing the training is the big reason. So there. It is really draining – I slept when I got home at 9AM a while ago, and woke up 4PM. Now I’m here updating my blog. It’s a good thing that I have Saturdays and Sundays off. =)

  1. its like going back to school. my supervisor was once a call center agent, and man, does she have stories. yeah, i heard you have to memorize all the states and holidays and some even try to make you adopt a western accent. not to mention, i heard really short bathroom times, nerve-wrecking multi-tasking and some really nasty customers.

    your daughter ought to appreciate you for all that sacrifices you are going through for her.

    the best of luck to you.
