So it’s been almost a week since I started my not so new new job, and everything is going great! Never felt more welcome as an employee before, and at the same time my day to day work life isn’t so bad at all. Sure this isn’t what you would call my “dream job” but it definitely is something I am looking for at the time. Baby steps guys, baby steps.
One of the cool things we have at work is that every Friday we have Social Hour, or some calls it Happy Hour. Around 3 PM the company would cater in a ton of drinks and snacks! This includes alcoholic drinks too. So I literally can drink on the job on Fridays lol! I try to refrain myself from drinking every Friday though, Alcoholic intakes should be monitored so I’d try to wait more than a week before drinking again. So of course I got a drink on my first week, and chat with some co-workers. Regrettably I grabbed a very strawberry soda tasting drink. It was gross in it’s own way since I really prefer my beer to taste like beer with a hint of fruit, if any fruity taste at all.
Chatting with a few co-workers I’d gotten a chance to chat with, doesn’t seem like anyone shares the same hobby as I do; which is honestly fine by me. I prefer to keep my work relationships at work and personal… personal. Then again, if I were to meet someone who I really click with at work, that would be amazing. Back when I worked at my call center job, I met many people whom I wouldn’t mind considering as my friend. But even then, I still keep most of them as co-workers because I rarely had the energy to maintain my relationship with friends outside from work anyways.
With my current job though, it is quite laid back. What’s great about that is, after work I still have the time and energy to do something else and ever socialize with other people! This is something I’ve always wanted with my past work because the Logistics one I did, the commute was a pain and not flexible so I didn’t have the flexibility to explore and play after work. And my call center one was just way too draining to make me want to do anything after work. Not to mention the 10 hour shift forces me to get ready to sleep right when I get home.
I can tell you about my day today as a great example of what I am talking about! After I left work, I went to have some Korean food for dinner with my sister. We even went to checkout the new Oasis Bubble Tea Cafe that recently open on The Hill. Pretty nice hangout place. The decor was hip and looks nice to hangout at. I don’t know about hanging out at bubble tea places though. They serve blended drinks, and that blender sound is a little bit too loud for me to enjoy chilling there for a long time. After spending some time sipping on my Banana Milk Tea and chatting with my sister at the new Oasis, we took the last express bus home and here I am! I have enough time to sit and read, listen to music and even update Hoshiru before I get my self ready to sleep.
This isn’t a bad place to be. I really want to make something out of it and hoping I can make something out of it. I refuse to leave this place before I have made a big impact there. And who knows? If I were to make a big impact, I might feel like staying longer, if not forever.
Let’s see where life takes me.
