Today our office got word that we’re being closed down and the main onshore office will be established in Tasmania. Fortunately, there’s plenty of forewarning: It won’t be until around this time next year. It was still very sad to hear though. I’ve worked at the same company now for five years and have many close friends in the office. Starting anew sucks. I was happy with my job, with my wage and with my workmates. Now, I’m going to have to start looking for something new which hopefully still meets all those criteria.
In looking for a silver lining from today, I guess there’s nothing like forcibly being moved from your job to make you reconsider your priorities in life and making sure you don’t take things for granted. Hopefully, I can find some equally enjoyable work in the next year.
To make myself feel better, I bought the new trade of The Walking Dead at the comic store and Sarah bought me a sweet ‘I Scored With The Princess’ shirt. Made the day somewhat better.
