So now what?

So how have things progressed in 2 months? Ups and downs... Pitching like mad, trying to fill up my time with things to do. It's better to learn something than to do nothing and learn nothing.

Putting up with someone who cannot multitask, who is not ready to grow at a rate that we want to... When things get too bad, I just mind my own business and not think about it. One day at a time...

Something interesting has happened though. Something came up! The excitement was probably too much to bear that I fell to the invasion of the viruses, and had to present in my sexy husky voice before taking a 1.5-day MC.

So... I'm just waiting for good news, keeping my fingers crossed. Let things go well!

The Pursuit.

At a quarter of a century old, what would you like to achieve in your career, or what goals are you setting for yourself, in the short and long run?

Money, status, position? Or to pursue your passion and interests?

I happen to be in a career where I fulfill both necessities and wants. 

But the problem lies in where to go next?

Dilemma, dilemma.

Life goes on, things must move. On one hand, I do have feelings towards where I am now due to the people I have been and are working with. On the other, they are not the ones who will help me lead the rest of my life. I must be rational.

In being rational, of course there are relationships and timing to talk about. Argh. Things get more difficult and complex as you grow older, ain't it so?

Future Plans.

Things have come to a stage where I feel the learning curve is limited. I'm getting bored from the lack of work, and hence lack of exposure. 

I've been told time and again to stay and help the place grow. But if there's someone who's always defensive and insists that the seriously-overused and used-to-death ideas are the best, there's really nowhere to grow towards.

At this age, career progression shouldn't stop or slow down. I'm not at the edge of retirement, or intend to just work for the sake of daily work.

Experience is but a relative concept. You may have 10 years of experience. But if you only repeat effective 6 months of experience over 20 times, what 10 years are we really talking about doing the same thing over and over?

It's time to move out of the comfort zone. And I'm saying that to myself.

The Feelings.

Been reminded of the feelings over and over, with it getting more intense as the seconds tick by. Okay, supposed to even have this happen was beyond expectations. It just happened, and besides thinking about it, I haven't acted on it. Maybe subconsciously signals might have given it away, but I think I've been receiving mixed signals... 

I must say the connection and chemistry sparked off just like that, and has built up over time. I think we have drawn the lines well. 

Sometimes it makes me wonder if this is what people say about, "when it comes, you won't be able to shield yourself from it." Well, everything happens for a reason. This may or may not be it.

Let's just let nature take its course. If it happens, it happens.

What kind of expectations should you hold stepping into a new place? 

Or what worries you about what others expect of you?

I guess it's just for me to do what I normally do and not worry about how others think. No point getting obsessed when you ain't gonna have any control over the minds of others.

Let's give it 6 months...

That's it. Friday was my last day following the resignation of my ceo, also my direct reporting officer. Looking back, I've learnt tons, managed terrible clients, chased deadlines like nobody's business and worked hard. It's a pity to see what's left behind. Or rather, I don't have eyes to see.

Moving on, moving on, new environment, new culture. Hopefully I get to live my new year resolution - not to work so hard since the start of this year saw never-ending work and deadlines. Busier than ever before. Let's take it that the best does the most work. No shame, but I am confident that I have done well.

Let's see what happens on Monday.

A fresh start, a new beginning.

It is the only constant isn't it? Well, there have been major changes at work. Some of us are moving on.

Opportunities have come up for me to progress and here comes exposure to a new culture and environment. 

My colleague's right. Let's not look back at the past, but forward to the future.

Work Woes.

Work can be irritating sometimes. The nagging issues that creep up into your mind on weekends. Roar.
And all thanks to corruption in our very fine see-vil service - the gaaa-men clients are getting more troublesome than ever. 

At the end of the day, just gotta tell myself that it's just work. Snap out of it and move on.

Merry merry Christmas everyone!
Same Old Nagging Matter.

The same thing upsets me over and over and over, not the first or second time. When can we see an end to this? Maybe adding one more ball to your juggling act is too much for your hands.
