Happily unemployed.........

It's official.
Last Friday was my
last day
in the company.
I resigned.
In short. I'm jobless.

I got mixed emotions about it.
I was glad with my decision.
I know coz it made me feel better when I decided to give my irrevocable resignation letter. Then, last Friday, 10 minutes before leaving the office with my paper bag full of stuffs, it started to sink. My psychological shield was breached and I started to recall all the good, the bad and the ugly and how it shaped me for the past 2 years of working with the company.

I don't feel sorry for my boss. I feel sorry because I am going to miss the people who I shared my life with 12 hours or so a day, 5 days a week. People who cried with me when I was and those who rejoiced with me when I was happy and triumphant. I will miss them and the idea struck me hard that it took a lot of calories to control the tears while I was in the elevator. But it came and I was just sad.....

But I am recovering....sabi nga nung isang blogger, emotional distress lasts for only 30 minutes. After that, nag-inarte kanalang. Yes, our natural state is to be happy until we disturb it. Why am I sad? This is my decision, oo nga. Maybe because I just want to digest what happened and this is my way to finally let go and move on.....

This song speaks of what I owe to feel now.........

Sheryl Crow - If It Makes You Happy - Sheryl Crow

If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad.....

.........can't find a better song for me, for now.


  1. Cheer up salingPUSA, am sure u can get a better job in the future! =)

    All d best!!

  2. see it as a fresh start. heheh

    ako din medyo emotional eh lalo na pag "closing" at "parting" times.

  3. I do hope you quit your job as career move. It's not a good idea to resign for the sake of resigning (no matter what the reason is) without a new job to jump into.

    I bade you good luck on your next endeavor.

    On the side, are you Ilocano?

  4. it's all about a fresh start i guess!

    good luck!

  5. when one window closes, another one opens, so yeah, I hope it is a fresh start.......

    BTW Jake, I am from Pangasinan. I understand Ilocano but I can't speak Ilocano. why did you ask?

  6. hello. pareho na tayo unemployed. But there's always a reason naman. Dito rin sa internet maraming opportunities. :)

    God bless.

  7. Funemployement ! what a word !

  8. with a talented person as you, nothing is impossible.

    usually yung mga taong nagriresign, sila yung may magandang kakayahan... di natatakot mawalan ng trabaho cause they know, they can do better than their previous job. tama?

  9. Not to brag...but yeah. I am confident I can find one soon.If I want to. But for now, I just want to rest, rest, rest......

    I want to be gone for a month where nobody among people I know will know where I am.....

    mamundok kaya ako?joke. I want to be alone with myself. Siguro burnout lang talaga.......

  10. it's like that, a sudden change make us weak. As for the people u work with, you can always hang out with them still~ :)
