Welcome to My New Work Life
Last February, I made a decision to resign from my job as a Local Store Marketing Coordinator of Gerry’s Grill, my last day would have been March, but I ended up getting offered to work at the head office as a Digital Marketing Assistant. I gave it some thought and accepted the job even though I haven’t seen the formal offer. Some would say it’s not a very good decision because the head office is in the North and I’m from the South. The travel time and expense would kill me. Plus, I don’t even know how much I’m getting paid or what the benefits are. It didn’t matter. I have aired out my reasons to other people who doesn’t seem to accept it so I wouldn’t lay out the details here. But one thing’s for sure, I am happy where I am right now even if it takes me 2 hours to get to work from my house. This is my new work life. 🙂
Anyway, I was pretty excited for my first day. I even “dressed up” for it, but later found out that we are supposed to dress down every Mondays and Fridays. So far, I have taken a few pictures to remember my days as an office girl.
Don’t I look nice?
On my 3rd day, I brought my own pantry. It’s a small box filled that has oatmeal and cookies and other stuff that would get me by when I’m hungry. Now, my reason for this is that I wouldn’t have to spend on merienda when I get hungry and when I’m hungry and there’s no free food from the bosses. LOL.
Also on my 3rd day, the asst. Brand Manager treated us pizza for merienda and it was glorious!
I’m not in it because I’m the one who took it. Heh heh.
So far, I am enjoying my life here. It’s peaceful when every one’s busy, it’s loud when people are bored and they talk to each other, it’s productive when we brainstorm for our next project.
No company/office is perfect but I like it here.
