It's the 4th of July, and I believe some of you out there get a day's rest. :)
I took a day off today. I'm hoping to run some errands (eg. develop at least 12 passport-sized photos in case I need them - for the Dubai work permit, residential visa etc). The jury is still out on going over. Meanwhile I'm still preparing for the trip, but also mentally preparing myself in case it doesn't work out.
It sucks being left in the limbo like that. People have tried explaining to me it's not their fault. It was the circumstances. Yes, they are not responsible for the circumstance - but they are responsible for the manner in which they handled the situation. The very lack of transparency is what pisses me off. That these people who you work for are willing to shuffle you around and drain every last drop of you - and they don't believe in honest communication. That their reservation for NOT giving you the full facts is: they are afraid you might change your mind about going to Dubai.
They expect me to put one year of my life on hold for them. Of course I need the facts to make an informed decision. Do they think my life doesn't matter?
But enough about stupid employers.
I'm also hoping to get some reading done today. Maybe even blog something about The Making of a Chef, which I found very useful. I will probably continue reading Kitchen Confidential, and some of the comics trade paperback I bought a while back. Later in the evening I will probably drop by for yoga class.
I just want to take a break right now.
