So long, for now

Do you ever have days when even though so many things have happened, you just can’t seem to write it down properly?

Tonight feels like one of those days.

I have gone and done it – served my resignation to my very wonderful boss. It was quick and painless, and basically lost among the shocking news that the company might be bought over.

Believe me, it wasn’t the easiest thing to do and especially when I felt I was letting down both my boss and my London trainer. I was on the verge of crying when chatting with Hams, who had just started work in the London office, as he kept urging me to “cancel” my resignation.

I told him everything – about the latest episode of bullying, about the fact that I would probably have to wait for two years here to get a promotion and a hefty pay raise, about how uncertain a future I would have here, about how I didn’t want to work in an environment where I had to dodge malicious attacks. He told me they had intended me to run the outfit by myself at the end of the year and how he wished he could be here to help change things, HR-wise.

But he isn’t here and his hands are tied.

I’ve missed him and I will miss him, he was everything I would have ever wanted in a boss.

No matter. The die has been cast and there really is no turning back. I just have to move on ahead and hope that the choice is a correct one.

Someone told me that if I am getting bored with my work, it means that work has failed to stimulate me and I am getting too intelligent for what I am doing. I would then have to answer this question: should work just be something that earns me money or something more fulfilling?

Call me naive, but I really want work to be more than just a job. And that is why I have to leave this place. Maybe in future, I might want to go back again but for now, it’s adieu.

The people who made it all worthwhile
