I have news my dear readers. I have quit my job. I am happy and sad. Happy, because it is a great relief. At least I will sleep peacefully in the nights without thinking of how much work I have to do...

And sad because I realized I was not required anymore.

I never shied away from but well never mind. Let’s say I am ready for new beginnings. I want to write and will continue to do so. In my almost one year of work, I have learnt that your first job however amazing it might be is not the end of the world.

You work and hence you are paid. No favors from either side. Never let your life revolves around your work and don't fall in love with your company. Believe me I learnt this the hard way. So I am a free bird for now and yeah...a few things coming up!

For now I am just looking forward to Bangalore...

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it and 18 years is a real long time compared to mine! And I will definitely let you know if I need any suggestions or help!

Thanks again!

Yes. I have not taken a break in a long time. I always want to get on with life without realizing what I am loosing out. But I am going to chill for now (hopefully!)

@ Himanshu

Yes. Cheers to my independence!

I hate my job, yet I still cannot manage to bring myself to do it....quit the job that is. There is always the feeling that there is something great just around the corner.
Enjoy the time before you dive into your new job :)

Nikki said...

@ Sujoy Bhattacharjee

Yes! I had started to hate my job too! And I am cherishing my new found freedom!

Hope you are getting along fine!

Nikki, I've been through several job endings where I was definitely panicked and I had to tell myself, 'You know it's always worked out before. You know it will work out again.' And it did, eventually. But you can't help going through all the ups and downs first.
