Done Deal

I’ve finally went and put down my signatures to all the transfer papers today. In a way I do feel sad leaving the company that I have been working in for the past 7 years. It being my first place of employment after graduating college makes it even harder. I’ve learnt and grown a lot with this company. To have to go, especially in the manner of being outsourced, does leave a bitter taste in my mouth. I guess this is the reality of current business conditions. Everyone is competing to give their product with the lowest cost that some of the less profit-making sections of the business have to be sacrificed. At least they did us the courtesy of ensuring employment with the new company.

As for the new company, I have no idea what the future holds. There are too many horror stories that I’ve heard about them that sometimes they are hard to believe. I guess that I just have to experience it for myself. My plan now is to take it all in and evaluate them once I get all the info that I need. If the need arises that I seek other employment then that will be something that I have to consider. For now, I’ll stick to the plan and observe.

On a brighter note, I’m planning to take a 3-day weekend. Need to go to the bank and complete my monthly transactions on Monday since they have been closed for the past 3 Saturdays. Can’t let my bills go past due. I’m also taking Mum for a nice lunch this Saturday since I couldn’t go back home to her place this weekend like I promised earlier. With everything that has been happening this week, I thought that it would be better for me to be at my own place for a bit.
