I have taken a photoshop class using the training budget of my new company. It was good as it make me understand the basic functions of Photoshop. I am still wondering how to make my drawings digitised and edited using Photoshop but I think I am starting to get some idea now. I am glad that I am finally able to use the Wacom tablet and pen that I have bought for over 2 years now!
I know that this sounds insignificant, but after posting a few postings on my #letterofpositivity on twitter and facebook of relevant groups online, I have received two emails! The idea of sending them a physical letter did not work that well, but I can understand perfectly that people do not want to reveal their home addresses to complete strangers online. But hey, emails work fine for me and I did it (after waiting for a good number of days for them to respond).
I hope there will be more responses coming in...
Facing a brand new environment is tiring. Having to re-learn everything again takes both time and effort. During my younger days, it was exciting to be in a new environment. However, it is not really now as I get older.
However, communications people are always fond of gossip. I do not know why, but I always wonder if they could stop talking and focus more on work it would be better. It is very annoying and it is one of the main reasons why I am dying to leave this field. The bitchiness of this environment sickens me in general. But my new company seems much better in this field.
I decided to sign up for Master of Applied Finance this year. It will take a dent in my savings but since I cannot expect to switch to investment in this company immediately, I might as well not waste time and concentrate on learning a new skillset discreetly. The thought and process of studying will allow me to NOT focus so much on my current jobscope (since my focus will be quietly on my masters course) and I am enjoying a full month’s of leave (actually more). That means it is easier for me to take leave on Fridays to prepare for my exams. I have also casually asked if there will be work on weekends. Nope.
Praying very hard they won’t activate me for Friday stupid dinners. It is very annoying. I am trying to escape as much as possible.
