The last few days have been unusually busy with trying to wrap up work at my old job. I feel like it’s a race against time as I handover my clients to the other team members. I’ve still been doing my regular tasks as well and that has been a mistake. I have a week left and now it seems I have very little time. Ah well, I have to do what I have to do. People ask me why I’m still bothered to put in the extra hours. Well, I’m still the same person. My sense of responsibility has not gone away just because I have resigned. Plus, I really like my team mates and I want make sure that this transition is painless for them, not to mention my clients.

As the days get close, I’m getting more and more excited about my new job. It’s a totally different role from what I’ve been doing for the last 10 years… actually my entire job life. So it’s a bit of a shift in my career and while a bit scary, it’s also the kind of challenge I want to take on. I feel I haven’t taken many chances in my life where my career is concerned. May be it’s because I’m a woman, may be it’s because I’m a single mom. But, this time I did it, I’m trying to be brave, and I’m praying that it works out!
