two weeks without a weekend

life is gettin too hard these days. before the last week i said to one of my friends that im enjoyin the weekends very very much. loads of movie watchin, "vakua"[ chat with frnds] , and sleeping. what has been happenin since is a tragedy. i didnt have a weekend last week and im in my office this friday too. my back has been painin, feeling sleepy and having a constant headache. i just wish the eternity to stop for a moment. i need to breath.

yesterday i had to attend an interview in BanglaLink. i have a tragedy in the telecom field. i have been attendin some interviews and i am mostly fraustrated by the corruption that crept inside the private sectors of bangladesh. i dont wonder y bangladesh is the most corrupt country. now its all about referin and such. in bangla we call it "shwajon priti".[dont knw the exact english...:(] after tryin too many days in legal way, i started to cope with the atmosphere and tried the referin channels. this call from BLink is a result of that. anyway in the last interview, which was in Huawei, i was asked about what i do and what my father does. only by that they found out im not good enough. but deep inside i knew, i didnt have the strongest channel of referin... heh heh... pretty pathetic...:-S.... i studied long night hours for that one. and for nothin! so i decided, this time im not goin to waste my time. if they rnt goin to select me, im goin to make them confused. i went there exhausted from the office work as if i dont care much, what ever he asked me, i just replied i know all of them, cant remember now as im not in touch but im confident to do anythin that u give me....:P.... durin the interview once -
recruiter- r u ready to be posted outside dhaka, for example in Bogura?
me: sir, what is frequency of posting here in banglalink?
recruiter- u will be posted for three years there.
me: then the answer is no.
R- y?
me: above all, my parents are old now i cant live without them. more over i dont have any friends there!!!
R- huh! friends?! the company will pay u, not ur friends.
me: i knw that. they would, in my need, if they could.

sounds pretty weird right[may be i did make him confused, lets see]? or like a fool. yeah im a pretty dumb head back in here. but what can i do! i just cant live without friends. my parents are also scoldin me constantly and sayin, these friends will not stay the rest of ur life. but i knw they will. i just pray to Almighty Allah, please Allah dont make me regret my remarks in any part of my life. i just dont want to find myself admittin my parents and the recruiter were right regardin my friends.

nepotism is everywhere more or less! frm what i have heard about bangladesh i don't see much difference here .... (well the situation is getting better i guess .. cuz i've got one without reference) but interviews suck regardless,,... i think being straight forward is way better than lying {i had to lie unfortunately :( (ya.. now i blame my fortune though i don't belive in it)}

anyways.. what did u derive "vakua" frm? :-S never heard of that word b4

audity, vakua is a bangla slang, infact a intra grp slang. we use it in our iut frnds. it means "meaning less adda, with meaninless/meaninful topics for hours"....:D
