I read a blog post from my friend here and I was a bit surprise to know how much she was intimidated with her former job. I know that she didn’t find it comforting but I never though she dislike it that far.
And now that she is self-employed I can see that she quite enjoy it. And it is kinda make me envy because right now, I am the one who feel kinda intimidated with soon-to-be my job.
This job I am going to be officially assigned soon is something I consider as a stepping stone. It pays very good for my standard and It will provide me with the challenge I’m long looking for. The subject is not exactly my favorite (and is not something I familiar or passionate about) but I think I can manage. I am ready to learn!
What makes me so damn stress is that the office is going to be in Jakarta. And in Cipete to make it even more ‘exciting’.
We haven’t even start occupying the Cipete office and I already intimated by the image of struggling to leave the house at 5 am, waiting for the angkot that will take me to the bus terminal in the freezing breeze of morning time, and mind wondering for a couple of hours during the trip to the office. Not consider the traffic!
And it is only the illustration for leaving, not the journey to return home! It will be even crazier. Imagine if I have to leave office at 5pm? NO WAY!
Probably I can negotiate to leave office at 3pm? I really hope it’s okay. Because, if they still insist for me to work full-time based in Jakarta, I may drop the job. I couldn’t afford it. It will take so much time and energy, so money consuming.
Why can’t they just rely on ICT? These day people are suppose to be able to work from anywhere. Okay, I will negotiate. I will certainly negotiate on that! Even if the project would only take three years…but…but.. I don’t want to spent that three years with seeing only my child sleepy face everyday and not being able to laugh with them even more.
Please God help me!
