Making A Decision

Status Quo No More

It's been 10 days since my last post. I don't know why, but even with all the free time I've had over the past few weeks, I just can't seem to find the inspiration necessary to come up with a post which will not put my readers to sleep after the first 2 sentences. (My posts usually put my readers to sleep after 2 paragraphs, which is a great achievement me thinks!)

Yup, I have been relatively free over the past 4 weeks. Not surprising actually, considering that I've been unemployed. Yes ladies and gents, I have uttered the dreaded 'U' word. No, not 'underwear' you nitwit, UNEMPLOYED!

Some of you may already know this, but I left my previous employer around a month ago. I know I know, most people would ask why in the world did I leave before securing a new job right?

Well, without trying to sound corny, I left early because I felt it wasn't right for me to continue accepting my pay when I wasn't giving a 100% anymore to the company.

Alright, there is NO way of saying that without sounding corny.

I'm not claiming to be an extremely noble individual or anything like that. But I just felt it was the right thing to do. After only around 3 months into the job, I realized that the IT industry was not where I wanted to be 10 years from now. I just couldn't get myself sufficiently excited over software solutions and system integrations and bla bla bla. Sorry to all you IT folks out there who get goose-pimples and tingling feelings up and down your spines whenever somebody mentions the words 'system development life cycle', 'object oriented programming', 'database mirroring' and 'tivoli/websphere/lotus/(insert name of boorish IT product here)', but it's just not my cuppa tea.

Having said that, I would really like to thank God for recently blessing me with 3 new job offers. I'm currently contemplating on which one I should accept, as they all each have their attractive points. I hope to be able to come to a decision by next Monday, not much time, I know. Ah well, I'll just have to pray hard :)
