Quitting my job today...
Going about, tying loose ends here and there. Is it my imagination, or are the people I work(ed) with going ahead, without involving me at all...? Have not done anything at all since I arrived today. Nothing on the desk or otherwise. Boss was going to send me for a stake-out, but I opted out, saying I came in for the day only to quit. Hate to sound/seem unprofessional, but waiting under the hot sun - ok, fine, clouds right now, but in Mumbai, that's even scarier than the sun! - is not my idea of a nice way to spend my last day.
No use denying I'm going to miss this place. For all the ahem, ahem, complications... I had a blast. Got some good experience. And I can't deny it. Everyone was a bit surprised when my resignation letter was so nicely received - perhaps, none so more than I! ;-) Maybe that means they think they're better off without me! *guffaws*
Was reading my GRE and TOEFL prep stuff yesterday, and needed to leaf through a dictionary, so I took out the small one I'd picked up in Chennai. Two years back, in Chennai, a July evening, and I walked over to the corner store and picked it up: scribbled on the front cover: To myself... a New Journey... no floundering allowed! How naive I must have been to think that you stop floundering after you've taken a decision. You keep changing your mind all the time. You keep changing your life - and though it's not so frequent, it can be quite diametric. I've told myself that this is not necessarily a final goodbye to journalism, but then, I'd be lying if I said that I felt a lot of zeal in what I said.
It's just another drift.
Bessht of Luck and all! :)
Been a while, Chemical Brother.
Greener pastures.. foreign shores.. The rest of the world awaits your arrival with bated breath.
very bestest of luck.....i am sure one day you will find your way back
to the muck called journalism
aint it a relief to know that you can always flounder even after you have made a decision?
is that not how we do what is it that we want to do but would nt do otherwise?
hey, this way, u get to create a new future...best of luck on ur new journey!
Yeah, its never easy but I guess it needs to be done, it needs to be done. Best of luck for the future!
Heading where? Any plans?
