I almost lost it today.

So I was up for an interview at 7PM, and I was there at 640. I texted my contact saying that I was there already. She didn't even look outside to check up on me, if everything was alright. So I was standing there outside their office, looking pretty much like a fool. 7PM passed and still no one was asking for me. I really hate it when people make me wait, unless of course they have a really valid excuse. It was 730, and I was determined to leave at 740, so that I could say that I waited for an hour for nothing. I wasn't able to go inside their office because they have this biometric system (yeah, they like, swipe their finger so that they could get inside), and when I peeked inside, it seems that there's no one in the reception area. There WAS a doorbell that I didn't see right away, but still, the HR officer should've checked up on me.

When I was about to leave, a man walked out of their office, seemingly on his way home. Then he sees me and asks, "Are you an applicant?" I almost said, "Are you fucking crazy? I've been here for an hour waiting on you, and you were about to leave!" Now it's either he forgot that he was meeting me, or the HR officer I was talking to didn't tell that man that there is another applicant. Either way, it's their company's fault.

But I really needed the job. My resources are running low, so I kept my cool, swallowed my pride, and said yes. Turns out, he was the one interviewing me.

Well the interview went well. It wasn't as technical as I expected it to be. It was pretty much the same when the HR officer interviewed me on the phone. And it seemed like we were on the same page, so I'm really hoping for another call from them.

Anyway, I just wanted to write about it since I can't find someone right now to talk about it to. This is my therapy.

Brothers & Sisters

Brothers & Sisters is a TV series by ABC which premiered on 2006. It is about the Walker family, and how they cope with the problems that come their way.

What I like most about this series is how diverse the characters are. You might think that coming from the same family, they probably are the same; their values, their personalities. But they are totally different from one another, and none of them is perfect. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, which makes them very likable for me. I don't really like shows where a character is portrayed as this perfect, goody-two-shoes that doesn't commit mistakes and all that. I like B&S because it portrays the characters as they are: human.

It also evokes a lot of emotions. One minute you're laughing, the next, you wanna throw the remote control at the TV because of Holly! For me, a movie or a song or a TV show is good if it makes you feel all possible humanly (?) feelings.

Season 3 finished last May 10, 2009. It is renewed for another season, which will start (hopefully) on September 2009. You still have time to catch up :) It's so easy to watch, I was able to marathon season 1 in like 2 or 3 days :)

I have to warn you though, there are times that the episode is so heartwrenching. I counted the number of times that I shed a tear or cried my heart out, I think it's around 8 or 9 for season 1 (23 episodes). That's a lot, I think.

Anyway, I really really recommend this show. I'll probably do a more in-depth review of the series and the characters, but for now, this is it, and I hope this is enough to entice you ;)

The Sweetest Thing

The Sweetest Thing (2002) is a romantic comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate and Selma Blair. It's about Christina (Diaz) who has some problems with commitments, but definitely no problems picking up guys.

This is an old flick and I guess most of you have probably seen it, but for those of you who haven't, I highly recommend it! Despite the fact that this movie didn't "bring it in" (it's a financial flop), I really like it a lot. It has your above average dose of comedy, I can't even remember the number of times I laughed. There's just too many scenes that made me laugh uncontrollably. Okay, that's an overstatement, but still, it's really really funny. The Chinese/Japanese(?) resto scene, the male restroom scene, the car scene, I might as well write here all of the scenes. And it's not too heavy on the drama part. It's a perfect feel-good movie.

I will also list here the OST of the movie, since I'm obsessed with music used in movies, TV shows, etc.

So this is like my nth attempt at blogging, and will probably be my last (yeah, right!).

My birthday just ended, I would like to thank everyone who greeted me! Thanks you guys ;)

And what will this site be about? It'll probably be my views on different things, like movies, music, TV shows, both foreign and local. I'll try to be objective about them, and I'm saying now that it's gonna be hard. lol

A few things about my life will be popping out once in a while, like those pesky ads in websites.

I'll try to post everyday too, and sometimes probably more than once a day.

For today's post, well, this is it. Haha. Just an introduction. Look out for tomorrow's post!

Albert, now!
