I have a Weekend!

Hmmm...been a while.
So the updates, first.

I changed jobs. I realised that I was getting no where with my last one. And that when I decided to work in a place where I knew everyone, it was, actually a mistake. Sigh! Further, I also realise that as much as I enjoy event management, I HAVE to write. I can't be happy when I'm not. So!
Clarity, or some semblance of it, at last. Bottomline? I quit.

Now my boss doesn't open the door for me in the morn. Neither does he take us out drinking. And we don't discuss books and weird looking clients. But then, my work is more focused. I'm on my toes most of the time. I'm learning something COMPLETELY new. And if my work is bad, I'm told that it needs to improve. If its good, I'm told that too.
Bottomline? I'm happy that my professional life, is well, becoming professional.

There are 5 gals(including me) at work. And 8 guys. No one to drool about. One new guy joined the other day...sorta cute. You should have seen the socialising in the pantry that day. Sheesh ladies! Do we HAVE to be THAT obvious???? :D
Bottomline? In the land of blind, the one eyed man gets all the attention!

My super boss, I realised, does have a sense of humour. He's not your regular howdy-folks-how u-doing-this- morn kinda boss. But well, when I'm rushing to updates the day's features on the website at 9.30 in the night (my first regular day, I take that long to finish. The only people left in the office are me, the chief ed, n deputy ed), he thinks it important to ask me how I'm finding the work, and if I'm enjoying it.
Bottomline? If you work late, your boss warms up to you

At the end of the day, my friend asked me of I'm enjoying the new place. And without really thinking, I say I've not made up my mind. Which I think is true. It's not a bad place to work. My collegues, though not over friendly, are sweet enough to help, whenever I need it. My editors are supportive, and patient. I do enjoy the pressure to perform, the busy work hours. And having the weekends to myself. Do I miss the old place? To be honest, no. In many ways, I'm glad. But do I love the new place? To be honest, no. I like it, yes, love it, no. Is that ok? Yes.

Bottomline? I'm happy. At peace with myself.
Cheers! :)

real life's always boring, when out of the assembly line.
the seat covers are rexin n canvas, and there's no ac or disc player.
but the good news is that you can always get it customised. :)

life's not so bad, afterall, what say?

hey moontalk, Yshak here, the dream diary is fiction, its not completely true. Can u contace me @yshakar@gmail.com

Imagine that
the job were
so delicate
that you could
seldom-almost
never-remember
it. Impossible
work, really.

Like placing
pebbles exactly
where they were
already. The steadiness it
takes... and
to what end?
It's so easy
to forget again.

no i din write this.. but then since u ve found peace at ur nwe place i thot i wud paste this piece here.. it makes sense..

lash said...

well i don’t like to work
where i do half the thinking
and most of the reacting
for a team more fond of drinking
and old ways of didacting

does that make me a jerk?
I'd rather wing it solo
and risk my happy tushy
than report to some dumb Dodo
who’s got it way more cushy

sometimes i go berserk
when i can’t grab the bacon
I heave a panic spasm
but at least I'm never fakin’
a kissy-ass orgasm

so i don’t have to clerk
or split myself in fractions
to placate warring factions
y’see, i control my actions
that’s how i like to work

couldnt resist pasting this!

moontalk said...

@ lash
bet u couldnt :P

lash said...

well yes you were probably the only one who saw tat.. reasons are obvious. that moron prof knows that i blog. so if by accident if he comes here and read it, i am screwed.. not that my life is nice otherwise.

Id it is said...

Green Day lyrics say it all:
"Every new beginning is another beginning's end"
Good luck on the new job.
