New Start (2)

Time flies, I’m 1 month into my new job… I'm prepared to work over time as I thought I would be swamped in the evaluation exercise for the new system; unexpectedly, I need not have to do anything yet because they are already into the evaluation stage and there’s nothing for me to help in a way or another.

I’ve expressed my wish to my bosses to help in any other areas but my “services” are not needed as this point. I’ve hence sat around for 1 month doing nothing much, with occasion assignment to help with the tabulation of manpower and costing. Most of the time, I surf the net, read articles (*shhh*)… in fact this is the first time I’ve so much free time.. and it takes alot of endurance to sit in an open office doing nothing and still be seen as occupied (*hahaha*)

I told my friends if I continue to just sit around, my brain will start to grow “grass” …but they kind of envy my current work arrangement because I’m paid to do nothing ! Gosh ! This has never been my expectation. My responsibilities have also been reduced tremendously in this new job. I’m no longer accountable for the full system but a track to it. Perhaps, this is something I’ve been looking for since I am planning to go slow J  ... but looking at it from another angle, this may not be healthy too because this would mean that I would be “redundant” over time or when the project comes to an end in 2 years time ? But why worry now ? I just have to stay focus and get my track done ... and who knows what will happen after that ? Most importantly, I must always be ready for any new assignement J

As in any organizations, office politics is unavoidable. Similarly, I can “smell” it here as well and soon, I think I will be one of the “politicians” J  I told myself that I shall not get myself into this again, but is easier said than done… by keeping a low profile, talk less, comment less and I should be fine right ? (*hahaha*)

My RO told me that we should be able to kick start the project in early Oct 12 and I certainly look forward to it… Wish me well and luck ok ! Cheers !
