…after a short 1 year 10 months with this company, compared to 10 years 11 months with my previous company. There were no mixed feelings, no guilt, and no apprehension. All I felt was a huge sense of relief. There simply isn’t any emotional attachment to this company, compared to how I felt when I resigned from my first company.
Of course there’s a sense of sadness for few colleagues whom have made my life here that much more bearable, but I know we will still keep in touch via FB and other means. The only tears shed were when bidding farewell to a group of regional colleagues at a meeting in Bangkok recently. We were an awesome group that clicked so well together.
Looking forward to a few weeks break before starting work again – back to the industry I know best! I have pretty good feelings about this, but as with anything new, there are always uncertainties. What was truly reassuring was that my future boss, AND the company’s President, took time to call me recently, just to let me know how thrilled they are that I’ll be joining them. I hope this works out to be a great, long-term working relationship.
In the meantime, Yiu Yiu is thrilled that I don’t have to work for the next couple of weeks. I’ve been instructed to bring food to her during recess every day J I also have photos waiting to be edited and photobooks (eight at the last count) waiting to be done. Lets see how much I can accomplish.
