The sun shines again!

We have finally journeyed to the end of the proverbial tunnel!

I got another job offer, resigned and now working with a new employer! =D I finally moved on last month in October. Got cheated out of staying longer (giving longer notice than required) for -nothing- at my old job. Stupid HR. I got nothing out of my old job except for a month’s worth of leave where I did nothing but put on weight. I had to start at my new job in October, which means I missed being eligible for being appraised and being eligible for bonus since I couldn’t start in September. *pouts*

I actually managed to stay at my old confidence-destroying-mental-breakdown-inducing job for a whole year! (Inclusive of the three month’s notice required.) Woo hoo! Truly an accomplishment to people in the know. I’m almost two months into my new job now and I -love- it!! Gosh. *_* Being left to work on your own, having a boss who will actually take time to listen, and who will advise you without making you feel like an idiot is so -awesome-. I seriously have no words to describe how much better I feel every day. =D Anytime someone asks “how’s the new job?” I’m just all -smiles-. I almost wish I could smile -wider- to show how much happier I am. =D Hahaha.

The new job itself is challenging, in a way. Challenging the way most auditors find it challenging — the dealing with people, the pressure of hoping you don’t miss anything while you’re performing a check, the deadlines you have to meet. Otherwise, it’s rather monotonous. It’s actually a job in a field I’ve been interested in after my short internship at EY, so I’m really happy with where I am now. I don’t foresee myself looking for something else until I get really bored, or feel that I am not going anywhere in the next few years. *crosses fingers*

I know that there are people who aren’t too happy with my new employe: lack of benefits, lack of a healthy performance bonus annually, etc. But gosh. I don’t know if I can complain when all I can think about is the hell I got out of. Hahaha. I swear, my old job has been an invaluable experience. It’s like I can appreciate the non-monetary things better. Money isn’t everything, an adage I am truly living after giving up a performance bonus that might have been in the 9k range in order to gain mental wellbeing. Regrets? Not a smidgen. XD

My main goal is to learn as much as I can, make myself invaluable (hopefully) and try to make sure my performance can be measured at the end of the year. But so far, I can’t imagine wanting to be anywhere else for now. =D
