A new job

As I am typing this, we moved into 14th May 2009.

My last day as a Thomson Reuters Client trainer.

Why am I typing this blog entry so late into the night (or so early in the morning, depending on how you want to see it)? It's becos I can't sleep....

Have been rolling on the bed for the past half hour, with the stupid breathing device attached to my nose I find myself gasping for breath every minute. Yeah, it's been 2 weeks since I've started using this device, which supposedly was to help people with sleep apnea cope with the lack of oxygen intake during deep sleep, so that the patient could achieve a better quality rest and feel more energised the following day. So far, results have been mixed, i must say. On some nights, i've managed to sleep without much of a problem, and true enough, I wake up feeling better (than usual) the next day! But other nights... well, I guess today's just of those "not-so-good" nights.

So I find myself blogging about my last day at TR...

Gosh.. didnt realised I'd miss my (current) job already. No - actually, I'd miss my current colleagues more than my job. They are the people who make my day at office interesting. All that bitching - about the job, the politics, the gossips - really makes my day. Sometimes, the day passes by so quickly, all I remember are the bits and pieces of our gossip topics, gathered through the lunch and CB (no, not what you're thinking! CB refers to "Coffee break" ) sessions.

天下无不散之宴席 - as they say, all good things must come to an end, at some time. That's why good memories are so treasured.

I am pretty excited about my new job though. While I'm confident I will stand up to the new job challenges and demands, I wish my new colleagues will be as helpful and nice as those in TR. And of course, I hope my new manager is a fair one. That's really all you can ask for in a leader - to be fair in his/her treatment of their subordinates.

Many people have expressed surprised that I'm changing job, with the economic crisis and all. First, they'd be surprised I'd managed to find a job (what's more - in the banking sector!), then secondly, they'd be surprised I WANT to change job in a time like this - in a sense, giving up a relatively secured job to venture into the unknown.

I dont know if this is a good thing for me or not. Only time will tell, I guess. But I do know that you gotta grab some opportunities when they come your way. At least I'd know that I've tried. I just don't want to feel any regrets later on, thinking of "what could've been".

Cheers to my new job!

And cheers to my great colleagues at TR for making the past 3 years such memorable ones. Thank you, my friends!~
