    Losing Myself

    Last semester had absolutely been the most terrible I've gone through in college. I dropped out of the dean's list with an extremely low QPI. I quit the organization I held so dearly close to my heart over managerial disputes. I lost friends and somehow, I think I lost myself...

    Ain't As Easy As It Looks

    Wow, management.  This is when it gets big.  I prove to myself and others that I can do this. This is when I am no longer sheep.   I take initiative.  I think outside the box.  I walk with my nose in the air. I smooze with the bigger...

    So, I've lessened a load on an assistant.

    Not Easy Be a Manager

    I mean in my way then I am a manager. Most of the other people may not agree but they have to follow or discuss or fly away. Because not everyone could realise a better way to do things, a man will come to lead. In most of the cases, you will get hurt but you will continue...

    I've finally made a decision.

    I'm letting the assistant go. There's no need to discredit anymore. I'm at peace with how to handle the situation and myself. It's for the best.

    This is one of the toughest jobs I've EVER had.

    I truly empathize with other managers that have to deal with issues of respect for both management and employees. It's not easy when one faces the black and/or white circumstances. Finding the shade of gray to help all areas improve and build is a TASK!!!
