Howdy?

I just wanted to pop my head in and thank everyone for the wishes on the previous post. I let it hang in there a long time and hogged every belated wish too πŸ™‚

I’ve been gone a fortnight. And a lot has changed in these 15 days. You know how they say some birthdays are truly landmark and you feel the changes soon after? My 27thΒ has been similar. Without being cryptic, I’d like to say that things have gone topsy-turvy at work. I’ve made some decisions which make me brave in the eyes of some people and foolish in the eyes of others – basically just the way I like it πŸ˜€ No, I’m not moving into something exciting and new.. not right now anyway. I’m talking about my current job – the one I’ve held on to for 28 months and been miserable about, almost all through. I’ve been driven to a point where I’m really really letting it rip and though it will certainly end with me storming out of this place, I’m very interested in flinging the shit around before I walk out the doorΒ – in just my old style.

When you’ve tried being non-controversial for a long time only to see it being considered as your weakness, you can’t be bothered about impressions, anybody’s idea of maturity or “letting it be” once you finally do decide to do the right thing. And I have no doubts that THIS is the right thing.

Wish me luck, and check back here in a few days. I’d probably have a long story to tell πŸ™‚

  1. I agree being non-controversial does back fire at times. My first job I was a loud mouth hence could not last long. Last one I was restrained so lasted enough. Now into third one and keeping my fingers crossed

  2. Aw! I just thin that you need to take off for some time. In my opinion there is no such thing as ideal, be it spouse / job / work-place or whatever. Just hang in there till things change for the better.

    Don’t leave any place, because you want to quit that job, but because you are going for something better.

    Flinging shit just dirties you as much as it dirties others.

    Just my 2 paise.

  3. To further qualify my comment – go for something (a job) that you ‘love’ rather than quit just because you hate what you do now. Meanwhile just take some time off to decide / find out what you love. Do not quit, because that would just make you to plump for the next offer that comes up (in your anxiety of being unemployed).

    • What you said makes a lot of sense. But push comes to shove, I’m willing to deal with the insecurity of being unemployed more than sticking around in a pointless job. Not to brag or anything, but I’m not in a desperate need for money right now and I’d rather focus on things that matter. One of which, I’m sorry to say, is putting forth the facts in the workplace and finding out the answers, even if it dirties my hands. Some things just need being done.. and in my life, this is one of those.

      I’m acting on most of your advice though.. taking a break, looking up jobs, drafting my new resume πŸ™‚
