Its been a while since i last posted here.My life's just been the same old. An outing here, a house party there, a brokenheart along the way, etc etc.
Just yesterday i had a job interview. This is a really good job with a good salary (yet to confirm how much) and alot of benefits. Two issues here.First I haven't gotten the job yet although i left a great impression on the panel.The MD didnt hesitate to tell me before i left the interview room. Second issue is that i have been on my current job for only 4 months now. My current job was interesting in the first month only. Apparently my immediate boss is based in Nairobi and the other in RSA. The pay is very good; actually in Obama's currency. No one to follow me around. All the good things you would wish for in a job.However, this job ceased to be interesting after the first month. It is now very boring. Imagine a job where everyday at 3pm yu are at yo desk dosing away due to lack of what to do. I am only busy on only Wednesday and fridays of some weeks. This job is totally boring. No challenges. Everything is just flat. Call the airline company to confirm cargo arrival. Send someone to pick the documents and thats a day gone. Following day get in touch with another firm that handles the clearance with customs and find out how far they've gone with the customs clearance. Third day find out if cargo is delivered to client's premises. Thats a week gone. Can you imagine. this job is not helping me in my career growth.
It is for this reason that i decided to find something else to do. Get to work, outline my tasks for the day and make sure i dont leave office till all tasks are accomplished. That way i'll get some personal satisfaction and at the end of the month enjoy my monies for a job well done.
Asked a few friends for advise and some said i should hang in here as things may brighten up in the near future while others can't believe ive stayed on this job this long.
My people what should i do? Even if i don't get this new job i was interviewed for, i still have so many other opportunities out there.
On a different note, there are so many company xmas parties going on and mine being a one man company in Uganda, there wont be a party for me. However, i plan on having the biggest corporate party. It started yesterday by going to the cinema to watch Eagle eye. Its a good movie. Today true Body lies, Wednesday a drink for me self. The party is to stretch all the way to the start of next year.
January 3rd is also fast approaching. A very beautiful lady is returning to Uganda from France that day. Between Jan 3rd and 1st February.............simanyi. We are both very excited. One problem tho; she wants us to try out some new stuff which am not ready to try out. i am not going to do it in the OTHER opening.
Back to the new job. Once i get it, it may entail me to leave my lovely town of Ntinda as the offices are far away from Ntinda. Maybe if that rumour about getting an office ride is true.
Otherwise may yu all have a blessed festive season.
