Jobless, no more!

That is it. My last few hours as a jobless person. From tomorrow I join the Big Bad Corporate World. For the rest of my life (or at least for some years into the future), I shall be groaning to wake up every morning, crying as I wear uncomfortable formal clothes, limping with pointy heels, pretending to be a polite person and clambering up the steep organizational ladder. I have pressed my clothes, washed my hair, practiced my fake laugh and learnt to be diplomatic. But, I am still not prepared to start working. My last hopes of clinging on to being a kid are fast slipping away.

No more all-day-sitcom-watching, no more sleeping till noon, no more movie marathons, no more showers in the evening, no more reality TV shows till 2 in the night… no more blogging from my laptop at home.

From now on, I shall blog from my office. A new era beckons!

I like that you are starting a job when the worst employment news comes out. Unemployment is a statistic. One person that wants to find a job is not a statistic...if one wants one job they will find it:

So you already know about "fake laugh and being diplomatic"

You know what its not easy to be fake.... it's a great art...and so is the art of "pretending" .....but I am sure you'll do well now...

Congratulations - you can now gossip by the coffee machine, bitch about the boss and fall in love with a co-worker...makes you wonder why you ever got out of bed :-)

Supergirl said...

arun sundar - haven't you heard the unwritten rule in silent corporate offices? The higher your heels, the higher you grow. Also, the more painful it is!

karthik - sadly, the table is gone!

akshay, man in painting - thanks for reading!
