Yesterday it was confirmed that the project I had been working on has officially concluded! Hurray! :D  *throws confetti*

And just a few days short of when I have to leave too. I'm glad this project is finally finished within the timeline I hoped. It gives me a great sense of accomplishment seeing it going along smoothly. There were some bumps on the road, of course... and could have been better managed had I been a bit more expressive with my opinions. And the next people to take over the processes from now on hopefully won't have too much trouble. End of year 2010 + start of year 2011 = tons of cargo moving from the ports, either by shippers striving to get their end of year shipments out, or those wanting to get the first shipment of 2011 out.

Plus, it's something I can mention in my resume! Leadership skills-wise.... probably not so outstanding, but at least now I have some management experience under my belt ^^

Although the sad things is, six months into my tenure at this company, and I'm none the wiser of what I want to do after this once my contract ends.

Which is... really pathetic, to be honest.

Do I want to continue being in the engineering field, or do I want to continue my studies? Which begs another question - What course do I want to take? Seriously, my life is so fucked up. I have no clear view of what I even want. Maybe I really should have taken my mom's advice at that time, but the thought of it made me refuse to go into that path. Even though I actually do enjoy it, I don't want to study language/literature 24/7, you know? :\

Thursday is my last day at Maersk. And strangely enough, I'm looking forward to it. I have plans to settle some outstanding matters in my very loooong to-do list (mostly banking, organizing, and job search related). My wallet's going to be tight though, so I'll have to be careful with my expenditure. I guess a new piano is going to be put on hold until my financial situation improves.

*sigh*

Whoa, I left the office about 8pm today.

And I probably would've left much later, but I decided I need a break. All because I'm taking a day off on Monday, and my back-up goes on leave too. Seriously, what a frickin' tiring day. You just can't win against everyone, can you?

Time to step up to my decisions. And force some out of people.

*brain dead*

I was at work this morning when I suddenly felt like the table shook slightly.

*silence*

My colleague: Was it shaking just now?

Me: Yeah.

Colleague next to me: Really? I didn't feel anything.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Which is probably the answer most people in the office would have given. The shaking lasted very briefly, only about 3-4 seconds. But to those of us in my team who felt the shaking, it really felt like an earthquake. Thank God it was so brief. I'm actually surprised that we could feel the shaking though, considering the office building is only 7 stories high, located on a hill, and the ground seems pretty sturdy to me.

Still, I did some digging and here's what I found.

omg it really was an earthquake! O.O

The time matched perfectly with the time we felt the shaking. It was a magnitude 5.4 earthquake in Northern Sumatera, about 300 km from Kuala Lumpur. If we could feel a magnitude 5.4 earthquake from somewhere 300 km away from us (and we're separated by the ocean too!), then we'd probably be panicking if a bigger tremor were to come. Which I hope doesn't come anytime soon, God willing.

Scary thoughts...

I barely even log in to Dreamwidth anymore nowadays. Terrible, I know. Haven't been on LJ much either.

Less than a week left and September will come to a close, and I find myself with a growing list of to-do things, with a sinking feeling that it's going to take a hell of a long time to complete >.<

And come October, I will also start freaking out about my upcoming piano exam. Wonderful, self. When are you going to start practising more regularly instead of just the weekends? I even paid for the exam fees myself (about RM300+), since I've already started working and thought if I paid for it with my own hard earned money, I might be more motivated to actually work towards practising the exam pieces more.

Tough luck. Barely touched my piano during the weekdays. I don't have willpower for this kind of stuff.


On the fandom front, finally watched the end of UraBoku, K-On!!, and Kuroshitsuji S2. Was very happy with UraBoku and K-On!!'s endings, although I am secretly wishing UraBoku will have another season. I need more Reiga/Kanata, please :3

Kuro 2's ending surprised me. And for a while it gave me a WTF?! feeling. Will there be some kind of OVA airing anytime soon? Of course, I don't think it will warrant another season, given how things ended. But still... it left me feeling unsatisfied.

Thank goodness the manga seems to have been done with the Sebastian Holmes arc (lol :P). Hope we'll get a much more interesting arc after this. Not that it wasn't interesting, just that it doesn't seem to pique my interest all that much.


On work, my contract should end this September, but I've extended it to another 3 months. A colleague will be undergoing surgery on her spine soon (she has a slight scoliosis, making her spine curve like a C shape, although you can't really tell under clothes), so I'll be helping them out, since she'll have to go for rehabilitation after the surgery, and won't be coming in to work until January 2011.

Even though I'm happy I won't be jobless anytime soon, I'm kinda sad cause I probably won't see her much until my contract ends. Still haven't done any serious job hunting, and it's one of the things in my untouched to-do list right now. Really, I'm pretty hopeless at keeping deadlines >.<

January 2015
