I’m Back!

Has it nearly been a month since I blogged? Now as a kid, it would feel like years went by, one month. As a twenty-something, ever mindful that eating one fry goes straight to the hips as opposed to my teenage self who used to binge on fast food and stay skinny, I notice that time moves differently. One month does pass rather quickly.

So many, many things have happened which I could not blog about. The organization I worked for had threatened to fire me for thinking and trying to do my work, been told that I’m negative, combative and judgmental amongst others. I have gone through some super highs and super lows working on my last contract and after much thought, much deep, deep thought I finally decided to resign from the company I worked with and go back to working with my mum. It was never meant to be a permanent thing anyway, but I had hoped to stay longer.

I’m all the happier for it too.

There are some things I’m going to miss. I’m going to miss my colleagues and the consultants I work with. My colleagues are fiery people who can probably do anything thrown at them (save for maybe stupidity) and two of the most charming consultants (as they should be, they are consultants) who would go off to buy us a cup of coffee or a muffin at our request. They DO deliver everything for their cliens.

I’m not going to miss the work at all though.

There are many things to look forward to in the upcoming months. I’m looking forward to dusting off my writing which I’ve abandoned due to my work. I wish I was the sort to not let my work bother me, but I am and as a result my writing suffered. The beauty of my work is that I had to commute daily to KL, and since a chunk of my novel is actually set in KL, I have a better feel of the city, the expats (!!) that actually live in KL.

I have lots of work to focus on with my mom’s company, and so that’s going to be quite exciting as well. But more importantly, I have my own upcoming nuptials that I have to prepare for. =) I’ve become your typical bridezilla, with a gazillion magazines for ideas and an Excel spreadsheet detailing everything.

And then of course, India.

I’m off to India on Wednesday, folks. This came about unexpectedly, and it was one of the major impetus in my resignation. My mum encouraged me to go and I do believe India will help me move forward, rejuvenate my confidence to face the challenges ahead. Oh, trust me there’s lots.

But I have faith it’ll all work out. =)
