As you must be knowing from one of my previous posts that I have resigned from my job and was serving the notice period. So finally, it was my last day at work the previous Friday and it was a sigh of relief for me. I am finally free to do what I want to do, work on my terms, be my own boss and not work under anybody.
I did learn new things at this work place, I learnt to handle stressful situations, cranky clients, multitask between my own work and also look after my team-mates work, developed team-leader qualities, handled clients on my own, came up with new ways to improve the work quality, learnt time management and learnt to control my emotions.
The work place had its set of pros and cons, less commute being the pros and no fixed work hours, at times working even on weekends but still get unnoticed, low salary, no growth, work pressure, inexperienced colleagues being the cons. I mean, I would be doing my work and also write copies for another colleague, which in turn decreased her workload and overloaded me, but I never got appreciated for the same, neither in words nor in terms of salary.
Anyway, my last day at work was kind of good, my bosses got a farewell cake for me, post which we went to Poptates for dinner and have a few drinks, it was a good last day.
This also means that I will no longer be in touch with that one friend who coincidently was also one of my colleague at work. Good riddance? Sure we had good memories and friendship but it just had to end because things had complicated. If she ever reads this, I just hope she has a good life with good people in it. I would just like to erase that part and never look back, its over, never getting back in her life ever again, its for the good.
While I was serving my notice period, this one person came to the office to replace me, and I am glad she did. She was my junior in college but we never really spoke to each other, we lost so much time in hand. But anyway, its just strange how out of nowhere some people just connect to each other. It was great knowing her. She is a very nice person and she was the only reason why I wouldn’t have minded staying a little back longer in office. A highly knowledgeable and a gem of a person, I could learn so much from her. I wish her all the happiness and luck in the world and may she be able to do whatever she wants to do.
Overall, it was a nice experience.
But, job is done and dusted, its time to do something of my own now and be my own boss.
