For some reason, this week, I was in a major funk. Things happened at work which upset me majorly and this was the reason I was upset pretty much the whole week!
The saving grace at work is my reporting manager, a lady whom I liked immensely, even at the interview. She is also new, under a year there and seems to want to make the changes that will make the workplace better. Also, the place I work has been merged with another organisation (this happened around two to three weeks after I joined) and so things are fairly chaotic right now. So I am hoping that things do settle down a bit in a while and things will get better. If it does, that’s good and I will stay there for a long time, but if things are still in status quo, then my target is to complete a year here and then start looking for a new position. Though with the last ‘looking for a position’ still fresh in my mind, this is something I’d rather not repeat anytime soon.
But I have decided to change my mood as well as attitude now. I plan to be proactive, have a learning attitude and don’t want to take anything anyone says to heart. I am going to learn as much as I can while I am here, after all, every place and job is a learning opportunity.
Life at home has become quite boring these days. I wake up, get ready for work, get to work and then by the time I am back home, it’s already dinner time and I zone out after dinner. Weekends are taken up with doing the chores I missed during the week and it’s time again for the next work week.
Hopefully, I have more news in the coming weeks…Have an awesome week folks!
This was a short but intense work week. For some reason the week went by quite fast and I was exhausted every day when I reached home.
This week, twice, I realised that someone above me (God for me), is looking out for me. While I don’t want to go into the specifics, both times, I either missed doing something I would have regretted or wanted something badly and both times, almost immediately, I got signals from God and it happened to me! It’s at times like these, our faith in that higher power gets reinforced and becomes strong.
Other than that, I just lazed the weekend away! July seems to be a super packed month for me and here’s wishing to a great month!
This week has been quite eventful for me. I’ve been hinting about this for a while, but I started a new job last Monday. It’s different from what I’ve done before and I am still in the learning process. The people here seem nice and I am hoping I can be here for a long time.
Coming back from the holiday, GG fell sick and passed the virus to me on Sunday afternoon. So I was sick the first day of work. I could not take time off since it was my first week there, so I was popping medicines at night and going to work in the morning. I’m much better now and actually have passed the virus along to S, who is now sick!
My hiring manager has been very busy this week with deadlines so I will be meeting them only sometime next week to discuss what I need to do first.
This was pretty much my week. Hopefully, I will be happy here and have many stories to share! Have a wonderful week folks!
We had been on a holiday to an Indonesian island over the past few days and it was such a chill holiday. We had no agenda and didn’t do any sightseeing, which was a new thing for me. I’ll do a proper blog post with more details, especially from the perspective of someone who is vegetarian.
We had a relaxing 2.5 days and came home to a sick helper. Actually, she fell sick the day before we left for our holiday, so that evening, I took her to the doctor and loaded her up with medicines before we left. The fever broke a day later, but she was still weak when we came back. So immediately, I had to start working when I reached home, doing the housework and cooking for the next couple of days. As I write this, she is in the clear, but still feels weak because she is not eating anything except some juice and fruits.
I am starting something new now, more details to follow when things are more clear.
Have a great week folks!
The week started off on a very good note for me. It’s something I don’t want to share as yet, but once things get finalised, I will definitely share it here! Suffice to say, I have been quite happy this week.
We also finalised our holiday later this week. We’re going to one of our neighbours, to a place, I honestly never saw myself going for a holiday. So more posts on the holiday to look forward to.
The last week also seemed to go quite fast and in what seemed like the blink of an eye we’re almost halfway through 2017!
I’m really looking forward to this break, so more next week when I check in!
Have a wonderful week people!
