Being In The Twilight Zone

I've been out of Manila Times since May and it's been great. My stay with that company has been drastically shortened by two weeks with shit that went down between me, my ex-boss Mike and his Hell's spawn of an assistant Arabel. That's a story that I'll reserve for some other time.

Since June, I've settled back into vampire mode with my new job at Branders. That's right, I'm back in the night shift world although my work now is about 10 millions miles away from your regular, run-of-the-mill call center job. Although my work involves being on the phone most of the time, I go by my own schedule. And best of all, where would you find a company that lists catered employee meals (read my lips -- it's all for free!) as part of their employee benefits?!?

It's been a real sweet life for the past couple of months and was very much looking forward to the next year or two. Midday Wednesday while I was sound asleep, my mom woke me up for a phone call. I was still too groggy to be totally pissed but I took the call anyway.

On the other line was a guy telling me about an online exam I have to be in Saturday afternoon. My jaw almost dropped to the floor when he introduced himself as an FAO staff member. He adds that I'm qualified for the Programme Clerk position I applied for almost 6 months ago. At the time that I submitted my application to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, I didn't receive any confirmation whatsoever from them so i thought I didn't make the cut and gave up on it.

Now, I'm on the brink of freaking out and I'm trying to control it by reading up as much as I can about the FAO. I have no clue as to what questions would be asked of me on the exam and the best that I could do is to prepare.

I don't know what's going to happen next but I hope that it'll work out for the best. Whether I move on to another job and another routine or continue with the one that I have now, I'd still be very happy. Branders has been very good me since day one and I wouldn't mind staying.
