Happy times!


I have ended my contract for about a week now. Liberation is indeed a very nice feeling, and I can say that I don't miss having to wake up so early in the morning, I don't miss squeezing with the morning crowds to get to work etc. When my FC asked me whether I could work from home and that she could pay me any amount I wanted, I decided to reject her outright although the offer sounded really tempting. I finally had time for myself, which really is a very liberating experience 'cos I could finally enjoy my weekends without worrying about what's going to happen for the next 5 days.

I must say that I am proud of myself for having successfully fulfilled my contract because there were so many times I felt like throwing in the towel and quitting on them, and I thank God for making me persevere through. My last two weeks were less hectic, probably because the internal auditors were here so we had to do things more discreetly, and also because I decided to move to the sales department. One, my seat in the finance department was too cold, and two, I couldn't really work well with so many people chatting LOUDLY (eyes some people in a certain department), so I decided to move out haha. Nevertheless, I have really learned much from my Finance heads, and for this, I'm really thankful, both to them and the Lord for their graciousness.

Because of my impending departure, I've had many rounds of farewell lunches and dinners. Thank you for treating me so well even though I was just a temporary staff (and maybe 'cos HF and I were one of the very few temp staff who decided not to quit on them halfway LOL). Seriously, I didn't expect that I'd get such a treatment from them, especially from the sales department 'cos I wasn't even part of them in the first place. I just merely shifted my seat to their area only. ;P

Anyway, my jaw hasn't been really functioning well for almost 2 weeks. It has been getting better but I still can't really eat as I did before. I do really hope that it'll be better before I leave. I did go for acupuncture in order to reduce the problem. The sensation was quite special. When the needles went in, I felt a bit of pain but that was all. After that the needles started vibrating and all I felt was tingling sensations all over. It was quite ticklish lol.

11 more days! I haven't started packing. And I am feeling quite nervous now. ;X

So blessed.


The week didn't really start off right. I had to spend my long weekend doing bank reconciliation 'cos the FC wanted it done urgently and yet even after the long weekend had passed, I still couldn't get it down to zero dollar zero cent. It really frustrated me more, to find out that the GL that I had been working with was filled with errors. No wonder no matter how hard I worked, I could never get the damn account to reconcile. It was even made worse when all the transactions from even last year (gasp!) were posted into the wrong month. I was seriously wondering what the previous people were doing and why I had to be dragged into this BS and be answerable for all their mistakes. Everybody must have seen my black face, if I had even bothered looking at them straight into the eye.

Then on Thursday, thankfully the FC was on half-day leave, so I felt a lot more relaxed and decided to retreat into the meeting room, where nobody could disturb me (seriously, I have a beef with some people in the other department. Can't you see that other people are busy doing their things? You very free I know lah, can still go around telling jokes so loudly and laughing so loudly. And your laughter sounds HORRENDOUS I swear. OK rant over.) and I could do my things in peace. That was when I felt truly cut off from the outside world, and then I prayed.

Although I didn't managed to solve it on Thursday, I felt a lot more at peace, and finally after 45 minutes into yesterday, I managed to get it down to zero dollar zero cent. He has heard, He has answered. Although not instantaneous, I still felt that He was around me all this while, and for this, I am very thankful.

I attended my first cell group session yesterday after all these while. Although I felt really very drained out from work, but having people to share my grouses with, and feeling His presence all among us is indeed very therapeutic. We ended at 10 pm, but I've never felt as energised as I did yesterday. Although I only had my dinner at home at about 10.30 pm, but for You, all is worth it. =)

Another reason to be thankful for: I have finally gotten my admission email. Praise be to God!
