I am Tagged !

My dear friend Blue has tagged me, I am very thankful for her for so many reasons:

First her sweet words and I do hope to meet her soon as well, her tag and most of all her maturity and support when I needed it.

So here are my answers:

Something to achieve next year:
It’s not an achievement, I can say it’s a wish …
Will keep it a secret though, Blue: yes you know it 🙂

Something impacted me last year:
Major thing was leaving my previous job and joining the bank, I am not very happy there but I have a feeling that it will turn out to be a good thing.

One thing I enjoyed in the group:
The talks and chats on the chat room, the new few dear friends.

What I’ll miss about 2006:
Being 28 🙂

I would like to tag my friends in the sidebar, if they would like to.

Felt like having a lot to say but couldn’t concentrate and put together all the bits and peices into one post , so here it comes again …

1- What would really make you feel satisfied… having everything or giving everything… I believe GIVING, having everything isn’t possible anyway.

2- Love can be purchased when the price you pay is love and sacrifice.

3- We are well equipped sophisticated master piece creatures, if only we know how to deal with that… ironically the instruction and manuals were provided but we revolted against them and decided to go on our own.

4- May be what seemed wrong with one person, would be the right thing to do with another.

5- They say “Time heals everything” … but how would you bear the time you spend waiting to be healed.

6- Arrogant and snobbish people do hurt other’s feeling even by just showing up.

7- Some people don’t know how to enjoy the moment; they knew how wonderful it was when it becomes past. They have great memories but they never lived a good day… imagine !

8- At work the most brutal task you can be given is when your boss harms someone, delegates you to represent his ugly face and see its reflection on that person.

9- So he is capable of saying what should and shouldn’t be done, he is not doing it though… seems his mouth works independently from his ears and mind, I expected to hear at the end of the sentence “………………………………, this is a recorded message”.

10- Forgiving is possible, forgetting isn’t.

11- Don’t look for a pattern, people are different.

12- I am kind of lost, keep asking myself “ Is that the right way “ I am sure it isn’t but I know I came across it truly by mistake but for a good reason.
“Right things sometimes happen in the wrong places”.

I began to appreciate weekends more and more at my current work, may because the week days became draining because of the new environment and culture not to mention the long drive.
The thing is I still can’t judge, I have been working there for more than a month and till now I haven’t worked yet at the department I have been hired to work at.
My temporary job is giving me a hard time and it’s mostly because I don’t like him as a person. He doesn’t treat people well and I don’t mean myself but other … I saw him talk badly about colleagues and it hurt me.
I don’t feel secure at that bank. I feel I am a fresh grad that is still figuring out the work life. As if seven years have been dropped. How come I am 28 and I still feel that, although I have the experience and exposure and yet .. .I feel like a kid at a new school.
I decided to look for another job though and I even went to that employment fair last Sunday. I submitted my CV to most of the companies there and then I went and sat with my colleagues at the bank as the bank was present there too.
I tried to help out as there were many people , I asked Dalia what should I do …she told me take the CVs and ask the candidates which department or field they are interested in and write it on their resumes. I did that and I don’t know why I was happy doing that … till she said, whenever the candidate doesn’t look or sound like high profile caliber, write X on his/her CV so we drop it. I tried to do that but it was so hard to know that this simple X would deprive someone from an opportunity he might be in need of. I hate being judgmental and I hate rejection although I am mature enough to know that this candidate might not fit a position in the bank but can truly fir elsewhere. There are qualifications that have to be met and it’s not anyone’s fault.
That day was so exhausting, in my way back home alone in my car, I was driving so fast, it was night and cold … I discovered that I was enjoying it.
The rest of the week hasn’t had anything significant after that other than when I fell on the stairs at work, I hurt my knee but I managed to drive home with my legs trembling.
Thursday was the best as usual, went out with my friends, ate and talked … that was so rewarding. And another piece of a soooooo rewarding thing for me … SHOPPED yesterday… that was so much fun.
Again about work: I can’t get rid of this idea that I went to work at that bank for a particular reason and I won’t be there for long :S (just a feeling).
