Listening to: Hoobastank â The Reason
Mood: Miserable/ Lonely
Iâm still adjusting to this office. People say that it takes about three months before you get the hang of it. Yeah right and in another three months, this project will be finished.
Actually, there is not much reason to complainâ¦ Well, there is a couple like these lazy and fucked up inspectors who walks around the site barefoot!!!! Yesterday, Annoying Inspector came by my office to use the phone, (background: of all the phones here on site, my phone and the Resident Engineerâs are the only ones working. Of course, they dare not use the R.E.âs phone so they harass my phone instead) I said ok. I stood up to go to the toilet when I noticed he was barefoot and was freely wiggling his toes on the floor. EEEEWWWWWW!!!!
Those people are so icky! As for my boss, heâs nice and actually very soft spoken or maybe I havenât seen muchâ¦(till my next post!)
Or maybe the reason why I feel miserable and lonely is because I miss my old office. Yes, even if my friend/officemate, Jolly J and I would often complain about being overworked, always on the go, left with only 2 minutes lunch break (ok, Iâm exaggerating) and endless âcall me this, call me thatâ â it was funâ¦
Or maybe I just miss having someone to talk toâ¦ well, they (my friends) or I still call them from time to time but then it is still different if you can see them laugh because of your jokes or see their expression on the news youâve brought them. Jolly J and I chat about almost everything and anything! It can be silly, serious, sappy, etc.
Now, I feel like Iâm in a silent movie, laughing quietly while I read Jolly Jâs rants over people who doesnât know how to use the printer or silently raging with fury when these a-hole inspectors bosses me around.
I remember my grade school days wherein you say goodbye to classmates because next year they will not be your classmates but you will stay in the same building. Weird. I know. But you see, even if Dubai is small, the possibilities are slim for a get-together, not that Iâm doubting our (Jolly J and I) urge to see each other but because of time and distance constraintsâ¦ it might be impossible.
I guess when youâve really experience some âfirstsâ you get sentimental about it. Maybe this is what Iâm feeling at the moment. Miserable, lonely and sentimental.
