My Survival

It's happened. It's finally happened. I have survived the first month of my new job.

Looking back through the years, I once thought to myself "Will I ever be able to find a good permanent job." At that stage, I was dabbling in my very own things while making a profit out of it such as, painting houses, repairing computers and even started to give tuition. Then later on I managed to find a part time job as a shop assistant in a cybercafe nearby the place where I rented a room and enjoyed myself with a holiday before I started embarking my quest again to obtain a job.

The next job that I manage to get was also a part time job at an IT company, processing checks for a bank that outsourced to that company. I worked as hard as I could in that company because I always keep in my mind the Bible's word of "doing all things for god's glory." I worked so hard at it that all of the new staff that comes in for training would recommend me to apply for a permanent position in the company. I refused all of their suggestions thinking to myself that I do not want to be tied down to this job as it requires the permanent staff to work until a very late hour should the volume of the check is high due to the lateness in starting the work.

One day, somebody convinced me to go for the permanent position in the company. The culprit: the person who got me the job in the first place. I fell for her reasoning of applying for the job and perhaps you can apply for an IT position later on. And so I did apply for the job and got hired real quick but with a lot of commotion on whether I should have been given such a high position in the company. Anyway, that's another story.

Right now, I believe that I am blessed with this job which is by far the most carefree job I have ever had. Certainly does remind me of ask and it shall be given to you. I wonder how long I can keep this job?
