And We Quit.

So this be my last post from workplace.

Will someone be kind enough to remind me why I thought this was going to be easy? I remember thinking getting into a good B-School was the tough part. But this? Quitting the job? This was supposed to be easy.

I guess it's just the change resistant hormones in me that are speaking. A couple of months later, college will become the new "normal life". Till then, thankfully, God has given us the short vacation!

Needless to say, I'll miss quite a few things from here, most importantly the salary and a few close friends. But with a dozen formalities that need to be completed, I think that's the company's way of cushioning out the slight bit of nostalgia. :|

Wonder why this song's playing like crazy in my head? Because I am scared. For those who have seen Sound of Music, they need no introduction. For the others:

What will this day be like? I wonder.
What will my future be? I wonder.
It could be so exciting to be out in the world, to be free
My heart should be wildly rejoicing
Oh, what's the matter with me?

I've always longed for adventure
To do the things I've never dared
And here I'm facing adventure
Then why am I so scared.


Till then,


  1. All the best for B-School. :) You are not quitting blogging, are you? Quitting is never easy anyway.

  2. Thank god there are no "Captain and 7 children" awaiting you!... Best of luck babe!

    *and u have set me off singing this song"

  3. Now that its done. Don't worry, the hardship is going to be short lived... All the best with B-school.

  4. All the best and do blog as and when you get time telling all of us how it is going :)


  5. Change is never easy. But, as they say, "Change is the only thing constant in this world."

    Don't worry, u'll get over it :)
