Today (16 May) is the day my day job is celebrated. Thanks for all the text messages, and also the personal wishes coming in. I appreciate it. Frankly speaking, I don’t anticipate anything for this day. Not even a wish from anyone because I know how crappy and terrible I am at my day job.
I also know I am not that experience in what I do, and despite giving my best, I still find myself very much flawed and sometimes lost or lack in information. There are moments I feel that those whom are under me know more than they should, leaving me very much wondering why am I standing in front of them, teaching them something they already know. It’s an awkward feeling, but I deal with it by empowering myself with more knowledge.
Anyway, the text messages and personal wishes coming in made me realize that what I am doing is so much worth it. At the point where I feel that my day job actually sucks because it throttles my social life, I get a new life line of why am I actually doing it for a living. In fact, I could be doing so much other things, but I choose this job, and there are in fact moments which I could really describe as ‘sweet’.
So, thanks for all the wishes, and encouragement. Indeed, I know I am not perfect at my day job. I am not actually a role model when it comes to my day job’s requirements, but I believe that somehow, and somewhere, I have managed to make a positive difference in someones life, and to me, that is the best part of my day job…
