Yesterday I had dinner with an old friend visiting from out of town. We talk to each other every few weeks and whenever I am in her town or she is in mine, we call each other to get together.
I met her back in 1991. She had joined the company that I was already working for. She is a very sweet and nice person. We had a good time, had good food and wine. It was a very nice evening.
Little breaks do wonders.
I told her that I will soon be leaving the company and she agreed that it was about time and it would be best for me to work part-time.
I graduated with a BSc degree in Business Administration in June 1988 when I was 21 and started working. This year is my 30th in the Work Force. There has been times I was between jobs because I do not like to burn myself out just for the sake of making money. I am thankful that I could choose not to work every once in a while. Thanks for all the advice at Personal Finance blogs about Emergency Funds.
Today I had lunch with my ex-boss and our soon-to-be ex-office assistant. She wanted to leave right after the ex-boss did but stayed because I needed her around. However, there is no point for to stay anymore and she is going. She had been training her replacement. I will miss her but we can always get together since we will both have more time in the very near future.
The ex-boss is going on a long vacation with his family. So, it was good to see him too because, we will not see each other before mid-September. We talk on the phone and exchange whatsapp messages quiet frequently.
