2017 Week 28 Update

I did my first offsite project this week and it kind of made me sure that I may not want to stay here in the long term. Things happened (that I don’t want to go into detail at this point) that now I am sure that unless things change, I will move out as soon as a suitable opportunity comes my way. 

The weekend was a very relaxing one, where I just binged watched the dramas I missed during the week. 

Now, here’s to a wonderful week ahead and hope everyone has a fantastic week ahead. 

2017 Week 27 Update

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!

2017 Week 26 Update

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!

 

2017 Week 25 Update

I survived week two at work and so far, it’s been a good ride here. My reporting manager is very sweet but I suspect will turn to be a hard taskmaster. There are others too in the office, whom I am learning about as we go along. 

Since I didn’t have good flats to wear to work, I decided to get some new ones. I didn’t want to buy cheap ones which hurt and break soon so decided to splurge on some good leather ones. I brought lambskin leather shoes at this brand called Pretty Fit, which seemed to be a decent price and since the Great Singapore Sale is going on, I got the second pair at 20% off. This is probably the priciest pair of flats I have ever owned!

S took the children to see the Transformers movie while I shopped and they loved it. This ends their school holidays. 

We’re still in our extended weekend, but for those whose week has started, have a wonderful week!

2017 Week 24 Update

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!
