The difference between my work now and my previous one still strikes me. Sure I frequently feel overwhelmed and well, frankly, overworked, but I would rather be these now than go back to where I was about a couple of months ago.
The difference, I guess, is while my work now is considerably heavier, it is more challenging and, thus, more likely to help me learn new things.
It helps that I feel we are working for a worthy cause that makes it worth all the time and effort we put in.
They really weren’t kidding when they said you should find a job where you like what you do. I can’t ever imagine myself going back to anything like my job before. Ever. Well, I hope circumstances won’t ever force me to go back! In the meantime, I shall learn all I can!
(A pointless post really. Just wanted to tell the world what a relief it is to find work that I actually like!)
Sa Himlayang Pilipino, kung maglalaro ka lang ng baraha pampalipas oras nang hindi nagsusugal o umiinom, umasa kang icoconfiscate ni mamang naka-uniporme ng militar ang mga baraha mo. Wag ka ring maniwala na makukuha mo pa ng buo at iingatan nila ang mga baraha mo kung dadaanan mo sa “headquarters” bago umalis. Mabuti pang ipangsugal mo na lang ang mga baraha mo at magdala ng beer para hindi ka hulihin niyang mga nakauniporme ng militar. (oo. BITTER pa rin ako!)
in our world,
that the petals pooled with nectar, and the polished thorns
are a single thing—
that even the purest light, lacking the robe of darkness,
would be without expression—
that love itself, without its pain, would be
no more than a shruggable comfort.” —Mary Oliver
