Time really flies so fast. I’ll be 4 years tomorrow in Oracle! *whew*
I moved in 2015 because there was an opportunity. And months before that I am already having doubts if I still wanted to stay in my then current company, where I only lasted for 1.9 years. Although prior to that I spent 6.7 years in my first one.
I can’t really say that it had been a roller coaster since I moved. Because it wasn’t. It’s more like discovery or realization ー knowing people you thought you already knew, seeing what they truly are, and how it’s good to work with close friends you’ve been with since you started working (the “master[friend]ship”!).
I thank my previous work experiences and the former people I work with, I came prepared when I arrived here 4 years ago.
I don’t regret moving here as much as I regretted moving to my second home, 👁🐝M. (I love the friends I met there, not the work and everything else 😅✌🏼)
I am thankful even, because ever since I moved, I have been able to find time to travel, to have social life. Work-Life Balance? This is it! I have traveled to more places since 2015 than in the last 8 years prior!
But there will really come a point where you feel tired and fed-up, maybe? You feel bored of the same things you do everyday, you realize it’s getting tiring more and more to travel to and from work, you feel stuck.
But then again, you’re too lazy to find a new one. I am too lazy to find a new one. I tried and failed, then tried again but backed out.
So what I have come to learn is that however I feel tired and bored or no matter how I feel stuck, I should always wake up early, try to find that courage to get up, dress up, and show up at work.
And never give up…. that things will get better and/or a new one knocks again.
Ohhhh am I still talking about work? Haha! See I told you finding love is like finding work! It relates! 🤪
