Today, my heart was broken. You might think it’s a relationship thing, it’s not. It’s more than that.
I must say, it was a great eye opener situation. I shouldn’t keep my hopes up high way too much. If I haven’t, then it wouldn’t hurt this much I guess. Anyways, I don’t want to have another depressed blog. As Barney (from HIMYM) puts it, I can turn this around!
I’d like to give a shout out to Ed, who will never read this blog, and to Aldrich, who thinks personal blogs is stupid.
Ed drove all the way from Coquitlam to UBC and when he just got there, I called with a teary voice. He knew what happened instantly. He excused himself from the team meeting and drove back to Hastings and waited for me an hour with a chocolate milk tea bubble tea and a letter. We then went for sushi, picked up his mom, played with my nephew, and had dinner with my family. It was a good evening.
Aldrich comforted me over a series of text messages until I told him I’m having one of his favourite dishes, spicy sashimi at Sushi Town. He then stopped texting me.
Nisa and Sabaina, too, texted me right away to check if I’m alright. 🙂
I’d like to thank Michael and Kingsley from work as well, for being so kind and supportive. They even offered me a position in accounting! Ah, if only I can use mm.. what do you call it again? Oh right, Excel! Haha. They also dragged me over to dim sum for lunch with 13 other people. It was definitely a great lunch. I hesitated in going, but I felt like I needed to get away from the office.
All in all, I’m still broken hearted but I promised to come back strong on Monday. So I gotta do what I gotta do to get myself back up on my feet by Monday morning.
I mean, come on, this is a great time to look for other options, explore other opportunities like I originally planned! Everything will work out fine! It’s going to be difficult to find a company that I can truly cherish for every single piece of it, from the product, to the people, to the way they treat their customers, to the office, to everything. But, I’m sure I can find another job for now and always apply back to it in a few months / years. Who knows where this broken heart will take me. I thought I would be single and depressed for many years when my heart was first broken, but it took me less than forever to find Ed and he turned out to be the best.
Kingsley sent me this quote by Steve Jobs and yes, I’m sure I can connect the dots in the future!
“Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” – Steve Jobs
