It’s a Different World

It’s been nearly two years now since I started thinking of finding a job somewhere far away from home. I can’t remember now how it all started, all I know is that I wanted to travel and work at the same time. I’ve never worked away from the country’s business district since I started working [apart from the 2-month work assignment in California] and it was getting boring already.

When  the year started, I started thinking of going away somewhere near or far. I was feeling restless, bored, sad, fed up. I don’t know how to explain it but I felt like I had too much of every negative emotion. 

One day I finally made up my mind and told myself that I got to do something. The first thing I did was to update my CV. Yes, I got to get a new job and  that was my ultimate goal. A new job that would break the monotony of my daily life. So, I went to work one morning with a firm decision of quitting my 5.5-year job. That day, I didn’t even have a slightest idea where I would go.  I was like, “this is it, it’s now or next year”, but I couldn’t wait for another year anymore. I was very hopeful that the 30-day notice would be enough for me to find a new job, besides there are thousands and thousands of online jobs. I felt like the courage and determination were really soaring high those days, I’ve never done it before, quitting my job without an assurance of getting a new one real soon.

One early Wednesday morning, I found myself on a window seat, admiring those white sand beaches from above and feeling all excited to see my new workplace. Yes, I landed a new job two weeks after a quit my job in the financial industry; and it is far away from home, not that far anyway, it’s just about an hour 15 mins flight from where I used to work.  These days, everything is extremely different from the daily routine in the business district, but I like what I have and what I’m doing now.

Life is full of adventures, we just have to go and find them.

    1. Does dried mango count as a hint? 🙂 So many places to visit here but I can’t go away yet as work schedule is really hectic. Hopefully I can wander around soon. Bantayan is waiting for me 🙂
