the grueling wait…

Posted: January 18, 2008 in C4

I have been on hiatus for quite sometime, I don’t know what to write, how to start, where to begin. My mind has a plethora of ideas to write on but I just cant figure out which will I write first. Well, I decided to make a follow up on my first post… and without further ado……..

3rd Friday of the year:

Three painfully soul-destroying weeks, waiting for the final countdown. The crux of the matter is, we still are waiting for a decision be delivered to us whether we stay or not, whether we SHOULD stay or not. It is definitely grueling to think when will that time be. No round-the-table discussions with one of this team’s heads, not even meetings (for formalities sake!), information were relied through word of mouth. How can that be? However, tidbits of details were given during private conversations and coaching but to the C4 , as a group, none.

Vague as it may look, a charade as this may seem – we aren’t Charlie Chaplin. We need words, confirmation, or even address us a simple email about this concern will do – but none were made. We are like candles waiting for the last paraffin wax to melt and will soon loose its light. Well, probably that’s just the way they are here. I can’t do anything about it anymore.

A lot of us is thinking about migration – well basically, that is where we are heading. Options – or are there options? Lemme correct this – BETTER OPTIONS. A new American company is actually scheduled to open it’s operations anytime on this year’s first quarter. Well for me, I will just have to cross the bridge when I get there. I can’t simply think of what will I do. I am still relying on what will happen on the final countdown. Whatever the results will be, let’s see.


On the other note, half of me wants to go back home, half of me wants to stay. I really hate adieus, especially when you know it would take a lifetime for you to see your associates again. Parting times, closing times – it sucks! Just last month, a dear friend went back to Manila for good and as much as I want to stop it, I can’t. It’s a marital decision which I can’t put my fingers on.

“Friends they come and friends they go” – this is true. They just simply come and go. I have been to three different work places, this being my third and on each professional ecosystem I belong, I easily find my niche. Easy adjustments, comfortability, and cohesive relationships amongst colleagues that’s just basically what connects me to them.

With the final countdown in mind, we just have to braise ourselves to what will be the final say of this team’s heads. Albeit C4 is reeking with different emotions and worries in regards to the hanging status we are at, we just have to enjoy each other’s companies and make the most of what we have right now.

Bonne Chance to all of us!!
