Is It Time to Move on?

Since my college year, especially when I lost my faith in the institution and got expelled, I never had any plan for my future. I knew then, my future would be shady and completely abnormal. I mean, I had no degree, no girlfriend, no interest in my major, and no steady job. I was forced to finish my study and got my degree, which I finally did. After graduation, I was told to go to Jakarta because my brother-in-law was planned to go abroad and I had to watch my sister's family, and look for a job along. It took me six months to get my first job. After a year, I was fired unexpectedly. I once thought to go home, but there was this flood blocked my way home, so I waited. I got my present job a year ago and it came along pretty well. Just last week, at a family meeting back home, I was told to go home for good. As for my job, there is one cousin-in-law who opened a small IT company and I can join him anytime. The problem is I begin to like to live here, though my job is always a pain in the ass. I always feel more stressed by my extended family than by my boss. At least I don't have to live with my boss for the rest of my life.

I Will (Learn to) Survive

Just move in to the new office, and the internet has been connected, finally. With two weeks of process, and the slack time of internet availability, they certainly put a stack of ongoing jobs. It's not helping that we are not always be full-team on site. Our boss constantly traveling, me and my colleagues also occasionally go to client, and one client is too much for a day. So, the office is pretty much vacant these days. Unfortunately, there is no space left after all. Once again, I was told that our client don't approve me to train them. What can I say, as I'm in no position to complain. It's so easy to be misunderstood, taken by face value, as books judged by its cover. I don't mind, it's part of the learning, the painful ones indeed. As the job stacked in my shoulder higher and higher, still figured the way to finish them. Well, it's time to listen to what my man Le Bon said, "...And as I try to make my way, to the ordinary world, I will learn to survive..."
