I know I’ve been away for a (long) while so I thought I’d pop by here to share some updates. I try hard not to talk about my work but somehow it’s pretty much the only thing I can talk about. Believe it or not, I’m actually tired of ranting about my job (or the lack of one in the past) but I guess my life is so uneventful that I simply don’t have other stuff to write about.
I’m still with the company that I mentioned in my last post back in February and let’s just say I don’t like it there. Before you start thinking hey, this person must be a problematic employee who seems to have issues with every company, I want to mention that I have another colleague who shares exactly the same sentiments as me. I’m positive that this time round, the problem doesn’t lie with me. My contract is ending in January next year but there’s an opportunity for an extension, albeit a short one. As much as I dislike the job and certain people there, I’ll probably accept it while I continue to look out for a new job.
I’m thinking I should return to my blog and come up with other more interesting things to write about. Make it a regular thing, you know? But judging from my lack of discipline, it might just fizzle out even before I begin. Well, maybe it’s time to start planning something.
I haven’t been here so long that WordPress decided to teach me a lesson by locking me out. Had to spend a couple of hours troubleshooting my themes and PHP files before I could manage to get my site functioning properly again. Ugh. All these coding stuff are just not my thing.
Remember I mentioned in my last post six months ago that I had found a job but didn’t like the job scope? Unfortunately, the job didn’t grow on me so I decided not to accept the conversion. I left the company a week ago and I’m currently back in the job market again. I’ve been trying to find the elusive “nice job” in the past five years and I’ve come to realise that it doesn’t exist at all. Right now I just want to get a generalist role and hopefully be able to settle down in my next job.
I’d also like to highlight that I’ve completely failed my Day Zero Project. I said I’m a procrastinator, didn’t I? I thought by having a list drawn up I’d be able to achieve at least 50% of my goals within the specific timeline. Sadly, lists and deadlines do absolutely nothing for me. Never had and never will.
Anyway, I’m so glad to be back.
It’s been a long time since I last wrote anything here. The last entry was made in January 2013 and that was also the only entry I managed in the whole of 2013. Terrible, I know. I actually do feel bad about abandoning my website.
In my last entry I lamented about how stressed up I was at work and I hoped to find something else to do. One year later I’m somewhat glad to say that I’ve left my job and I’m now unemployed again. Yes, you heard me right – again. I know I promised myself to secure a job first before quitting but job hunting has been tougher than expected. It didn’t help that the prospect of facing another round of year-end projects and workload really freaked me out. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so distressed over work before. As inappropriate as it sounds, I’d much rather be unemployed than to go through the hellish first quarter of the year at work. Things wouldn’t have been that unbearable if I had support at work but well, you know the story.
One of the pros of being unemployed is of course, having plenty of time to do whatever I fancy. That explains why I’m starting to blog again and hopefully I’ll be more regular with my updates this time round. Here’s to more posts in 2014!
