Assalammualaikum and good day all.
I've previously wrote that 2013 has not really been a good year for me right?
Truth is, it really was a depressing year for me. Especially career-wise. I don't want to dwell too much on that, but basically, if you're doing something that you really like, and good at, you enjoy it. But if you have to stop doing it, you stop finding joy and satisfaction out of doing it. You feel like your talent is wasted and not appreciated.
That's what happened to me. Towards end of 2012, I received a transfer letter as we had an organisational reshuffle, and I was was of the personnels involved. So early 2013 I moved department, and due to it being a new department with no definite KPI, I was left with almost nothing to do. Spend my days surfing the net, and other things but err... work. At first, sure you're happy to finally have time to yourself, and think for yourself because you didn't have time for that before then. But being idle is simply not for me. Too much energy to channel out.
Consequently, I fell sick a lot last year. I found a small lump under my armpit which I dismissed. Then a small boil grew on it, and I had no choice but to get it checked at the hospital. I then had it surgically removed, and Alhamdulillah upon testing, was nothing benign.
I flew home to Kuching end of April for what was supposed to be a 4-day trip home. But I got a sudden heavy fever on the second day I was there, including flu, sore throat and cough. I ended up staying there for 2 weeks. Along the way, I also got infected with conjunctivitis. I had to see the doctors three times throughout this period. It truly was a down moment for me.
Fever? It has become a frequent occurence to me too. When it was hazy back in June, so asthma also made a grand comeback. My body is very much attuned to the weather condition now. Oh well, I gotta take better care of myself.
Towards the latter part of the year, my health was somewhat better, but occasionally, a visit to the doctor was also necessary. I started doing some more work, but still, it wasn't really what I enjoy doing. But Alhamdulillah, it's still work.
I had to do a lot of other things to channel my energy and frustration, even till now. And I only pray that 2014 brings better things to come, especially on career.
That's a but of summary of a year that was 2013.
2014 will be a better one, InsyaAllah...
Till then, looking forward to this in about 2 weeks from now...
Wish me a better 2014 yeah? :)
