Jan 31 2011
Well let’s see. It’s not going the way that I wanted it to. But then on the 31st of December I kinda knew that it wasn’t going to go well. I had an explosion of sorts blow up in my face – I was getting blamed for something that I hadn’t done! Something went wrong and someone above me was trying to shift the blame onto me and I wasn’t willing to take that shit.
Well immediately after that it was nice ofcourse; I got to spend New Year’s eve with my two best friends. We had a few drinks and some good food and unfortunately it was raining quite heavily and we 3 got soaking wet but reached our respective homes in one piece. Because of issues at work I could not attend my friend Anil’s engagement ceremony on the 5th of January. My mind was occupied and it was heavy with not so happy thoughts.
Things went by for a few more days. There was no way that I would miss attending Anil’s wedding day. So I joined Madhu, his wife and a former colleague of my two best friends and we traveled to Thrissur on the 13th and watched Anil transform from eternal bachelor to a married man. That was not something I thought I would see soon. The only downside; we 3 haven’t been able to get together since for a nice dinner.
Since the 13th, I’ve taken 3 days off to search for a new job, floating my resume in a few places and sending a lot of emails. I’ve also asked a few consultancies to help me out by promoting my resume when they find any suitable job vacancies. And now, after a couple of weeks of silence, I finally have call backs from 3 places. I’ve already been selected for one comany but I’m not too sure about them as they are a startup. Tomorrow and on Thursday I have interviews in a couple of places that look very promising and I have my fingers crossed.
