First Week Summary

Well, we've come to the end of our first week back at work. Its been a wonderful start to the year. I walked in feeling chirpy, and determined not to let things get me down. This was put to the test many times by those I work with, but I stayed strong. I leant on that resolution today too, the day we got our 6 monthly full appraisal. I expected it to be totally crap as I have previously mentioned, which would have earmarked me for a future cull. I read the printout and was indifferent, it was odd, the blurb indicated I was rather good, but the rating at the end was of the cull-brand-type. When the boss man came back to discuss with me, I queried the dichotomy, and he clarified immediately that the rating system is now different, and I wasn't cull material at all. This was a bit of a relief, since I am about to embark on a house purchase and marriage - last thing I needed was the *have* to look for a new job. I prefer to look on my own volition and my own pace.

Anyway, the week is ending on a good note. I plan to keep to my other New Year Resolutions made after Diwali. I have donated to the Tsunami relief, and have tried to keep positive.

I thought I'd remind myself of them again, and thus have placed them here so that I see them for at least another few days :)

  • I will try even harder than I do to be nicer, wiser and more gentler than I am. I believe this is how I should behave.
  • I will look at discovering my next career move. Its clear that I'm not an android, so I must decide what I am.
  • I will drink the RDA of water every day - my food diary earlier showed that as my only flaw.
  • I will donate a little more to charity than I donated last year.
