My honors :)

   Last month I was awarded by my department as the O2C star of the month January. Let me explain... My team "the Europe Billing team", belong to the Order to Cash department of the company I work for here in Prague... And few times per year they give this award to someone who is suggested. In other words "the employ of the month". Yep, that 's me in only 6 months!
   After that, I was considering of a change in my position which I discussed with my beloved manager... In the meantime we had some visitors: the upper managers from America! Yoohoo! ( I love those stuff). Of course I didn't miss an opportunity of showing off my pretty face and have an amazing little chat with the three of them in a private meeting room (not my fault that noone else from the department visited them). Note, that those actions need true interest for one's work and for some people, bravery to open the door and speak. But I lack none of them and thus I was offered to participate in new upcoming projects. Yay!
   So, long story short, in the not-so-short meeting with my managers I heard some truths that I couldn't expect so soon in my career.. I was astonished to hear that the three upper managers new already about me by my department manager and I was very happy when she told me that she was not surprised at all when she found us in the meeting room, discussing (which by the way I left after I hugged all of them!).
   What made me get frozen from awe, was the phrase the manager used for me:
" I am sure in some years I will come to you for advice, because you are aspiring, hard-working and a person who helps others". I mean "wow". All the four more or less (including my department manager) told me to wait for the right moment and that in the business area we need more people like me... WHAT AN HONOR! They also told me that I am young and I have years ahead of me to achieve my dreams (yes, I have calmed down about the lost time in my life, a lot). The last thing my manager mentioned was that once I change position (within the same department), the people that I currently cooperate with, will miss me! oh sweet words...
   To sum up, I keep following/ chasing my dreams and I raise my patience levels in the meanwhile as this can help me avoid wrong or biased decisions...


Keep calm and keep invoicing!

Arrivederci




Tu sei solo un ricordo...
hai avuto una possibilità con me, ma...

When greeks meet in the same company

"What the hell!?" 

I visit the other departments of the building, just because it is almost 10 o'clock in the morning, I don't have any requests YET and the third guy I will mention on this passage told me he was feeling dizzy. So, time for me to grab my self-made Freddo and (f/)roam around.


-Morning, want some donuts? I say to my fellow greek.
-Nah, I m on a diet, he says pointing his non- existent belly.
I smile to him and I proceed to the other one, I met after the first guy. The day I met him, he had submitted his resignation in order to move to a better and more well-known company. I offer him donuts which he rejects by telling me he eats sweets after lunch.
- I'll be back after lunch! I tell him with my eyebrow raised.
-Don't you threaten me! he points his finger playfully towards me.
-Traitor! We hear the voice of the third greek guy. And he continues with this way-to-be-balcan gesture of the mouth as if he spits on him. "Φτου σου ρε προδότη!" he says and we all laugh. Resignation in our company is a teasing material apparently.
He approaches the first guy who terrified when he sees him, tells him "I HAVE CLOSING re malaka, go away." (he knew we would start the blah blah) . He looks at me.
- I m innocent, he came on his own!, I protest.  I hand him the donuts, he looks at me in awe and he thanks me.

Ten minutes later, I receive a personal message on skype for business:
-Don't be so good to me. I don't deserve it.
-Hit yourself a little bit to make it more dramatic, I answer him.


A laughter escapes my lips and my day gets brighter, forgetting for a while that...
I HAVE CLOSING TOO!

Run for your ... invoices!
GL, AP and Europe Billing united (?).

True story, happened earlier today!

if they ask you...

If anyone asks you...
Tell them, I still have feelings for you.

I have... Anger, disappointment and bitterness.

That' s what's left.

Θέλω να ξέρω

Θέλω να ξέρω... Πίνεις κι εσύ για μένα όπως θα έκανα εγώ;
Είναι μέρες που όλα σε θυμίζουν. Μα τι λέω.... Δεν είναι όλα. Αρκεί κάτι μικρό για να σε καταλάβω.

Μα φύγε. Αρκετό κακό προκάλεσες.

Είναι αργά πια για να βρεις εξηγήσεις ή να απαιτήσεις αυτές.
Δε σε ένοιαξε τότε.

Γαμημένο αρχίδι! Μου χάλασες το Σαββατοκύριακο.

Σχεδόν. Μη χαίρεσαι.


Ξέρεις, κάνω μια νέα δίαιτα για να χάσω κάνα δυο κιλά. Του ποτού: δ θα τρώω, μόνο θα πίνω!
Τζιν, ουίσκι, ρούμι, ότι βρω. (Ότι πίνεται το πίνω Κωστόπουλος)

Διότι έχουμε μια βασική διαφορά πλέον εμείς οι δυο. "Εγώ στην ηλικία σου" (ήρθε η δική μου ώρα να το πω), θα έχω κάνει παπάδες... Κι έχω ήδη πιο πολλά από σένα.

Έλα αν τολμάς, να ρωτήσεις ποια είμαι. Έλα, να ακούσεις για μένα...


Αυτό είναι αγορίνα μου. Ξέφτισες.
(Και βασικώς... Ξεφτιλίστηκες κιόλας).

Υγ στους αναγνώστες. Βρήκα την έμπνευση μου πάλι;

Αντίο αγάπη μου

Και κάπως έτσι, ξέρω ότι προχωρησες...
Μα αν είναι δυνατόν, κάνε μου τη χάρη και παράτησε κι εμένα ήσυχη!!


Αντίο.
