The Last Days

Posted on December 27, 2012 at 22:19 Life List

In a few days 2012 will be over. Whatever happened to the end of the world? More importantly, whatever happened to the rest of my year? Some things just don’t change. And that includes one’s procrastination. For the year of the snake, I intend to come up with a post and avatar and PNG each month. For now, let us go down memory lane.

It was on my birthday when I got into a series of interviews which ultimately landed me a new job. It was a whole day of torture. Out of the four, two were panel interviews, with the last one surprisingly as the most intimidating. :faint: As for my celebrations, I had three, with three different sets of friends, too. Until last year, I have never gone out to celebrate, and most of the time I end up sulking for such stupidity.

Departing from my first job was, well, quite memorable. After all, it was my first. They played two multimedia presentations with one mostly showing me drinking. :lol: I had great and wonderful messages from my bosses, particularly one which simply said, “You’re already old, you already know what you wanna do.” Somewhere in that statement, was a curse. :laugh: I’m pretty sure my scandalously boisterous laugh made a mark in my teammates. I left with no hard feelings. It was a choice carefully considered and planned.

By the time I get back on January next week, I should already be a regular employee at my second workplace. The two performance appraisals came by with me hardly realizing it. The comments I received were very amenable. It’s gonna be a high road. Before I left for the Christmas break I almost died on this one project. :no: In terms of people and the culture of the company itself, it’s quite different from what I have gotten used to. But what’s being a human for if you’re not able to adapt?

    I knew the world was not coming to an end. You should have seen Facebook on that Friday – it was ridiculous! Everyone was waiting to see what would actually happen, lol. I don’t know who comes up with these crazy ideas. We survived it though! :)

    Congratulations on landing a new job! I’m always nervous when I go to an interview, however, once we start up a conversation – I calm down. Thank God I don’t have to worry about any more interviews because I work for myself ;) Now, I’ll just have to interview potential employees! haha!

    Have a wonderful New Year tomorrow!

    Happy New Year! The font I used for the Merry Christmas 2012 card is antrokas_demo, I got it from dafont. I have mixed opinions with the end of the world thing… good thing it wasn’t really the end. Congratulations on the new job!
