Whattonameit?

I never imagined that I would be in a stage where I would actually be taking so much time to reply to messages posted here! Right from the time I was blogging on o3, it has been a craze that after a new post is put up, I keep refreshing to see if there are any new comments posted and reply to them immediately!

And look at my situation right now!

I joined my new job this Monday. In my particular sourcing team, I am the one first one to have joined and we will be servicing Symantec as our client. The other teams of finance, IT and all are on-board. Considering its a new client and a very big one at that, the last 2 days - I have seen my training manager on conf. calls continuously for around 5 to 6 hours! She said they start work at around 3 in the noon and continue till 6 in the morning!!

Gulp! 

In my old office, we never worked over time. We used to be at work 15 minutes before the actual time and 15 minutes after the close time, we used to be boarding the cab. And the last one hour - I never worked, since I didn't have the 'mood' to work :D Life was that simple in my old office. It was the most uncomplicated of times, I am sure!

But things are obviously going to be different here. You know what they say - 'Band Bajega!'. That's whats going to happen to me now. The first one - one and half months is going to be real crazy for sure. And it scares me a little!

Gulp again!

I found myself wondering if staying back at my old office would have been a better idea after all - it was such a sweet, protected life. But then, I immediately though of all the times when I felt enough was enough - which is why, I started looking for a new job in the first place! Crazy me!

Whatever - I am sure its all going to turn great. As a child, I used to look at the ads showing ladies handling teams, dressed smartly, working real hard and used to feel inspired by them. Maybe I will do all that now :))

Here's to more good & better things to happen in 2009 for me - and for all of you!

Cheers! :)



P.S. - Very sorry for the delay in replying to comments! I am not sure if blogging is allowed at work now :(. I will need to find out soon!
