Unemployed again

I will miss you

We will miss you

All the best

Good, timely decision

Keep in touch

Don't forget us

These were the most common sentences that i was hearing for the last few days. Today is my last day in my office. I have finally decided to resign my job and go for my higher studies. I was planning for it for quite some time and everything is falling into place now.

First job always has an emotional attachment to it, the job which gives us the much needed financial independence, the job which takes us one more step closer to knowing ourselves. I have experienced a gamut of emotions during my last two years on job. There were moments ranging from sheer excitement to deep disappointment. Now that its time for me to leave, my heart feels heavy with emotions. During the last few hours in bangalore, i could sense tears welling up in eyes at many instances and i fought to hold them back.

During the last two years, I have learnt a lot, worked with many a wonderful people and made great friends. Friends who made me laugh, friends whom i argued with, friends who stood by me through my highs and lows. I will miss J,M and Ar for making me laugh with their innumerable jokes. I will miss C,S and B for the coffee cup conversations and gossips that we shared. I will miss Ab and Ro for the laughs and the infinite site issues that we solved. Above all, i will miss my hectic schedule, deadlines and call conferences.

Now i am off to my home town, on a self imposed sabbatical, for one month, before i become a student all over again. Goodbye to a city which gave me such good friends, rekindled my reading interest and helped me know myself more.

Goodbye bangalore. I will miss you, I will miss the bookshops, restaurants, traffic jams and busy lanes.
