Here goes the month of September 2014 in our first anniversary year 🙂
By September the turn around the corner was visible to us. You started getting some prospects in terms of career change which gave you a direction. My career decisions were made but we had to wait for it to materialize from the employer’s side. All the insecurities that come with a job change, all the discussions back and forth if it was worth it.. Oh my God! It seemed never ending. Finally we decided not to make a bigger deal out of it than it already was and left it at that. I had to go through a lot of struggle emotionally and socially to cut chords with my then employer to set foot on the change. The experience was really tiring and I was already thanking my stars for getting me out of it in one piece.
You were also trying your hands at freelancing in these months but then got almost scalded because of an extremely absurd client. We have only ourselves to thank for handling it maturely and getting out of it pretty much fine. That put you off freelancing a bit although I would say these must be the stepping stones rather than discouraging factors. Anyway you are too busy now to try that out, but I hope the bad experience won’t prevent you from doing what you want to do in the future.
We were thinking of buying a Kindle for a while but it never materialized. September saw us almost buying the Kindle but we got out at the last minute – once I hadn’t brought the vouchers along and the other time when the model we wanted was not in stock. We were mad at Croma because they let us explore all the models, saw us arriving at that model, explained every nook and corner of it but when we chose one, they said it was not in stock. This happened in 2 different Croma stores and we thought perhaps something is stopping us from buying a Kindle. Too exhausted to try further, we dropped it there. Who knew you’d surprise me by making a mental note to gift it for our anniversary? 😀 Thanks a ton for that! I love it!
September taught us a lot career-wise and to be career wise 🙂
And did I tell you? I love you 😉
Until later 🙂
