Out of the Pan, and into the Fire...

Two more days. Two more including this one. I will be sitting on a different chair, working on a different desk. Hopefully, doing something different. I don’t share random thoughts that often. I usually don’t feel the need to. Other people have much lovelier thoughts. Mine, they are no different than others.

But here I am writing this post. In two weeks, I’m gonna get a lot more grilling than I ever have before. Am I prepared to go into practice? I don’t know. But then there is never a perfect time. Nothing is perfect. And my time is overdue.
It’s already 2 years and 7 months since I first started working in Rockwills. Perhaps this should be a tribute to the time I spent there. The wonderful people I met. The not so wonderful people I have encountered. Have I learnt much? Perhaps, I have in many ways. Learn how to cope under pressure though I still crack at it sometimes. I learnt that my methods are ineffective, and for this, I need to evolve. Evolve is such a strong word. I’m no simple organism.

Perhaps learning would be a better word. I learnt that there should be no delay in work, I procrastinate for reasons which are not evil or bad, eg laziness, but that I sometimes tend to put other things before what I deem unimportant but ‘important’ to some. Damn. I learnt the hard way. Somehow I always learn things the hard way. That’s kinda stupid. Do not always learn things the hard way. You can ONLY learn so much the hard way.

I don’t know if my colleagues are going to read this. I love them in many ways. Ahahah. As my friend puts it I love them, but not in love with them. Ahh heck…they are nice people, many of them. Well, its not the people that bug me in office…it’s the job. Then again, how many of us actually love our jobs? That is as true as it can get.

So…after Thursday, no more will vetting, no more will drafting (at least in the interim) and no more arguing over the phone for things which sometimes…make no sense to me. Do I love confrontation? I don’t actually, because it drains the heck outta ya. But here is the thing, I’m starting to enjoy it. And I hope I do not go overboard on this. So maybe I would love litigation. Maybe I will be burned by it. Heck…..i don’t know. But I can’t wait to find out. Although its gonna take a toll on me. I just feel it. Out of the pan, and into the fire.  CHooi and Co...
I hope I don’t suck in this!

Well….if my Rockwills folk are reading this, I’m sorry that I gave you guys hell. I have had great moments in Rockwills, and you all meant a lot to me. Thanks for the great time and the great memories. I live around the corner, so unless Rockwills decide to pack and up and move somewhere else, I’m always near.So goodbyes will be spared for now....

Hahaha…if only people read this blog……
