Yesterday was my Last Working Day at office. Strangely I didn’t feel very sad. I am surprised at this as I am a very emotional person and get attached to people too quickly. If I think about my last day at the previous institute and how much I cried, it feels so kiddish. 🙂
Another reason for my detachment is probably the frustration I have gone through in the project from the past year and a half. The office politics, the pathetic Lead I had to put up with, the horrible appraisals and very few friends had left me yearning for a change. It took me a long time to build up my courage to start looking for other opportunities. It’s so difficult to get out of our comfort zones, isn’t it?
When I did put my papers, I had to serve a notice period of two months. This term isn’t generally negotiable as the company doesn’t easily let go of people who are into projects. Hence I had anticipated my release in December and conveyed the same to my next company. Surprisingly my company released me in less than two weeks. I wasn’t really prepared for it. Why? No one can question it!
My next job joining is not until December. I decided to keep it the same and not advance the joining, as for a long time I was thinking of taking a break. Now that I have got one, I wanna make the best of it! The plans are many and I have ample time on hand, just gotta move forward from here. Waiting to see if everything pans out.
This time, I will keep my expectations minimal, so I don’t face shocks, surprises or disappointments. I also haven’t hidden my new job details from the people around, like I would have probably done a few years back, fearing things to go wrong. I am just thinking of sitting back and taking things as they come. 🙂
What’s up with you?
P.S: I will continue with the SL series soon. I am just being laaazy. 😛
