Happy year of the monkey

It’s Chinese New Year again and this year is the year of the monkey, which happens to be my zodiac animal. This also means I’m going to be 36 this year. Honestly, this makes me a little depressed but let’s not go there. It’s the time of the year to be cheerful and make merry afterall.

I have a piece of good news to share – I finally got myself employed! I’m not going to share how I feel about my new job now as I’m only one week into it. It’s a contract role so it’s not exactly what I hoped for but I guess it’ll do for now. I really had no reason not to accept the offer. In fact, I’m extremely thankful and relieved that I can finally end my job search. Scouring the various job sites for suitable openings on a near daily basis is tedious and stressful. I wish I could secure a permanent job and stop looking for a job for the next five years or so but I guess I should know by now that things don’t always turn out the way we want them to be. Right now I just hope I can do well in my new job and we’ll see what happens next.

In this brand new year of the monkey, I hope things will pick up for me and I’ll be able to pursue my interests. I also hope I’ll be able to stay positive and find some form of satisfaction in my new job. Here’s wishing my family and friends good health, good luck and great success for the new year ahead! Huat ah!
