Here’s an interesting fact, I never made a single New Year’s resolution. I don’t know. I was never a person like that who sets goal towards the end of a previous and beginning of a New Year. I have always worked in time frame (see 30’s Bucket List post). I guess it varies with people in general, which is majority. I don’t mind being in a minority. I like to chip things away little by little. Doesn’t matter how good you’re at multi-tasking, you just can’t tackle issues of life at once.
If anything I’d like to have it done by the end of year 2012 is to a solid career and stable financial position, completion of photography portfolio and a position on a Executive Board with a non-profit organization.
… is never easy. Not to mention I have never been good at these occasions. I don’t even know what to say. “See you later” isn’t appropriate because that’s why you are saying good bye. “Take Care” sounds tacky and “Good Luck” just doesn’t feel right. And what to do when half teary eyed women give you a hug? Is it the time to show your sympathies or your awkwardness?
A year ago this day, a number of my neighbors got let go, so in our row of cubes, only me and my boss were still around. Come Monday, I remember, it was really quiet in the office. Almost spooky. I’m still in contact with my former colleagues. Some found part-time work, some were still unemployed, and some have gone into depression. It breaks my heart. I wish no one feels their pain during this Holidays but as we already many people in States are suffering for past two or three years.
