Do you have a lot of friends or do you know a lot of people?

I would say the latter. I don’t know who’s my friends and I doubt just because I know someone, that someone knows me. It’s a sad fact but I guess that’s life.

If you are at a party and know very few of the guests, do you mingle and introduce yourself, sit on the sidelines and people watch, or discreetly leave?

If I’m at a party, I most likely did not go voluntarily. I am an introvert with anxiety issues and dragging me to a party might be someone’s attempt to change me or kill me. Since I’m one of those people that has a flaw of being incredibly nice, I might just sit on the sidelines and people watch. I would probably enjoy that. After all, you can learn a lot by watching other people, maybe even learn a secret or two along the way.

What is the best job you have ever had?

I’ve had a lot of jobs before landing my current one. The ones I had before sucked to the point I was crying on the drive home each day. The best job I’ve ever had is probably the one I have now. It’s the reason why I’m commemorating my 5th anniversary this May.

Can you swim?

Not really. Swimming was actually one of my biggest fears before I taught myself how to swim, you can read about it in this post. After so many years though, I’m afraid I’ve forgotten how to swim.

  1. Thanks for sharing your world. I can swim as in keeping myself afloat, but I’m not really a fan. The last time I wore a cozzy was in 2010 when I was in NZ and we all went swimming in a place that had four pools, all of different temperatures. It was very nice! My best job was as a financial analyst because it was all number crunching which is not only something I love, but something I’m good at!

    1. Then you’re better than me. I have trouble even keeping myself afloat. My mom has been pushing me to become a financial analyst but as much as I like numbers, I don’t like to stare at them all day trying to figure out what’s wrong with them.

      1. I often have to do bank reconciliations with transactions in all kinds of foreign currencies. It’s not a lot, just one or two, here and there, but it’s enough to make anyone go insane.


      2. In my last job, I used to do a company bank rec three times a week. My predecessor would do it once a month and wonder why it was so hard to balance. At monthend, she and a colleague would take a week to sign off the month, so nothing could be processed until this was done, thus making everything behind before you started. When I took over, I did the monthend on my own over two days, processing everything in the morning of the first of the month, then closing things down to run reports which were done the following morning, then after lunch, the new month’s input could begin. The bosses could not believe it.

      3. I beat you by a day, I do it everyday but Wednesday each week because if I don’t do it often, my manager would send out my invoices for collections without telling me even the invoices I created solely for reconciliations. My month-ends are about 90% billing and 10% cash reconciliations.

      4. Mine was more reporting than billing, but when I did credit control, I found having to wait over a week before payments were credited to accounts was unacceptable, so when I was promoted, it was the first thing I concentrated on.

      5. Wow, that’s a long time to wait for something to be credited. I often get phone calls and emails from customers because I couldn’t refund their payment at their speed.

      6. It was only because the other two took so long to balance monthend, so anything after the 1st of the new month couldn’t be posted. I often found myself chasing money that had already been settled but began to remember most.

  2. You and I would be anxious introverts together at a party…not speaking of course, but mentally pitying each other for being forced to be there. I also have a job I love, so I get that.
