My last day in my current job will be this February 2. Surprise, surprise. Yup, after three months of trial and struggle, I’ve finally decided to quit. And I’m quitting with no job waiting for me. Isn’t that a relief?
All this time, I feel that I have sacrificed more than I what I got. I regret the life I gave up in Subic. I regret that I threw away all the time for my friends and family in exchange for this high-paying job. I regret that I undervalued all of the relationships I have made from people around me. And for what? For a less fulfilling night-job where everyone feels like a drone worker haplessly racing with a deadline.
So this is me taking my life back. This is me getting in charge again of my life. I believe that it’s a must for every man to get a decent job but not at the cost of everything else in his life. Career is life’s entity not the other way around.
(Anyone who’s up to bum around the beach – Skipper 101, my newly-found paradise – feel free to tag along with me. We’ll be broke but we have our time. Isn’t life sweet? )
Update: Before that, sabi ni Emer me concert daw si Bamboo. I am so gonna be there.
