The New Job
It’s official since yesterday. On the 10th of August I am leaving from my current company and then, on the 14th joining a different one. I will start as a technical writer and if all goes well, continue with PR and marketing, both directions using a lot more of what I have learned in FJSC.

This was not an easy decision. Actually, it was the hardest job related decision I’ve ever had to make. Because I have great colleagues and friends here, because I’ve never have had major issues to deal with and other such painful reasons. Yes, the new job is a quite interesting opportunity and I will no longer work in shifts. Besides, they will grant me the flexibility I need to get to school once in a while.

I am quite enthusiastic about the new company and job, however, I cannot help feeling sad for leaving! Vali, my boss, is already working on making me feel bad. He has given me one of the toys on his desk, a tiny cello singing donkey. He said I should see it every day and feel bad about leaving :).

It will be hard to say goodbye, but I need to move on and follow my own path. Also, I am quite sure that they will remain my friends afterwards. And we will keep seeing each other and keep having loads of fun.

Other than that, I am enjoying my car each day. And I am going to Constanta today with K and Cris, who needs a ride to there. It actually is a quite big day for me and K tomorrow, it’s our one year anniversary and we are going to spend it at the seaside!

    All the best for your new job and congratulations on you and K's anniversary.

    It will all be fine in the end, you'll see. It was hard for me to go also, and sometimes I'm sorry for it and I wish I could go back. But there is a good side: you will still see the people at work and you will have free weekends to go and see K. Congrats by the way!

    Hope I can see you soon, and I hope you had a great time at the seaside.

    P.D.: You missed an "w" in the link to the BD site ;)

    Safiya, thanks so much.

    Sim, I know it is hard, but I am now sure I did the right thing, we'll talk more on this when you come here.

    As for the "w" thinks, corrected it! :)

    As they say, only thing constant is change. And a change is always for the better, but sometimes we may realise that only retrospectively.

    True, change is a constant part of your life and I do believe most things happen for a reason, therefore the change might be for the better.

    Thanks what a great attitude you have I coudn't sleep got up somehow ended up on your page. What an inspiring individual you are. I wish there more like you! You give me hope I think I will be able to sleep now. I read so much crap but you are a cool drink of water for a pilgrim on a desert crossing in a world that seems hell bent on destruction you are refreashing to say the least!
