As you may or may not know, I have recently just joined the working world. Yes, I am now a working adult - even I myself cannot believe it. Physically, I still look (sorta) like a kid and mentally, I still feel like a teenager inside. I am young, I am at the stage of my life where I want to explore and learn so many things...
And I was fortunate enough to land a 9-to-5 job that still allows me to learn something new everyday. I am surrounded by talented, young individuals everyday who are overflowing with creativity in a relaxed yet disciplined office environment. This is the kind of office I was meant to work with! No office politics and what not. I mean, I was never one to be so ambitious and aims to work in those big, world famous companies. I prefer working in a more close-knit company where everyone interacts like a family. Many people ask me why did I choose to come back to JB to work instead of staying on in KL. Well, one of the biggest reasons is because my family and bf are here. I am a family-orientated girl you know :p What's more, I can't drive nor do I have a car. It'll be so difficult to commute in KL. I see JB having much potential to grow in the future so I am quite contented with my choice. :)
Honestly, the only setback about having to go to work is having to wake up at 6.30am everyday, like in high school, as my dad has to send me to work before braving the morning jam back to his workplace. I dread the sound of my alarm in the morning when the sky isn't even bright yet T.T And I'm still trying to get used to not having afternoon naps.. It's hard for someone like me who loves my sleep ~.~ It also kinda sucks that I get to meet up w my bf less dy what with his studies and my work. Work ends late, we live too far away and weekends are now spent having driving lessons with my dad. Still, we make it work with whatever little time we get to spend together. :)
Other than that, everything's great so far! I'm taking everyday as a learning opportunity. Whilst I have to learn new things at work, after work I still have to brush up on my driving skills so that I can drive to work in about 4 months' time. So, all I can do is learn fast and endure!
Oh, even though there's no specific dress code for work, I'm still experimenting with ways to dress creatively yet stay formal enough for work. It's quite fun, planning my outfits everyday. :D
I'm really enjoying myself even though it's not easy in the beginning. But then again I've only been working for a week lah hahah. To me, everything seems to be falling into place in life and I'm quite pleased about it. It's only going to get busier after this and I'm bracing myself for it with an open mind. Also, I'm trying hard to be myself at work. I just feel this inhibition to show my real self to my colleagues. They'd be so shocked at how loud I can be haha. Maybe now's not the right time, shall take things slowly and let it progress naturally!
Oh yea I've just sent my camera in for repair yesterday, can't wait to get it back in 2 weeks! You have NO idea how much I miss my baby cam. I don't even have the mood to blog since I can't take nice photos, and I feel really bad about that. Please give me some time to organise my schedule so that I can balance out between working and blogging. Of course the priority is always completing my work first. Sometimes when I get home, I just feel so tired that I don't feel like blogging or even catching up with my friends. After staring at the computer the whole day at work, it gets mundane if I have to do it at home as well.. As it is I only like blogging late at night and now I don't have the luxury to do that anymore. I have a whole list of posts lined up for the month, I will work hard to deliver them! Lots of other bloggers are achieving this balance also right, I'm confident I can too! I hope things will be better when I get to drive to work and not have to wake up so early anymore which means more time to blog at night (lol).
Hang on, Rinn!
