>The last couple of months.


Hey, I’ve been away. And for the life of me cannot fathom why.

I mean here’s what happened. That new job I spoke about with much gusto. Never happened. DO NOT ask me why. We will not go into the sad details. Anyway, with the consequence that I was stranded without work. Hmmm. Now ordinarily one should look at this with much glee, right? Think of the possibilities. Sitting at Café Coffee Day all day, blogging. Or better still, exploring hobbies, taking a course, figuring out alternative income opportunities….

Did I do any of those?

Nah. I moped and expended all my energies in looking for another job. In fact, looking for a job became a full time job in my case.

I thought about a lot of people who would possibly give an arm and leg for the opportunity to have a break. Work will come by eventually. Enjoy the freedom while one has it, I told myself. And then the moment of weakness would pass and I would bury myself in a job portal frantically.

And here I am again. In a cubicle. And strange when I had all the time in the world to blog, I couldn’t. And now when I’m rushed to prepare a presentation, I am.

No. I didn’t enjoy the break. I love this way, way better.

    >Hey congrats. I'm dithering of the edge of getting back into the job market and wondering if anyone would want to hire me…

    >Congrats on the new job.There was a line in the book 'Middleman', where the central theme was unemployment in Calcutta in the 70s, which was quite poignant. The unemployed protagonist heard his brother cribbing about his job and said that its the employed who crib about having a job.

    >Welcome back and congrats on the new job. Very true !! Blogging happens only when everything else is happening in life 🙂

    >Too late to comment on this one, but still. I was job less for about a month, and i made big plans of what i'd do when i'd quit. Nothing of it really materialized. I spent my free time meeting friends, eating out a lot and spending a lot more money. Good luck at your work place.
