Day 8

Day 8 of not working. 8.51 in the morning. On the way to Damansara to send my car for service. Need to fix the brake judder as well. Still don't have a job. Went for an interview last week, but haven't heard anything from the company since. My SHO course is next month. Things are not going so well. Feeling anxious, worried, lonely and sad. But regret? Nope. Not at all. I don't have to wake up feeling depressed every morning anymore. I don't have to worry about the rounds anymore. I don't have to drag my feet to work anymore. I'm free. Fuck yeah!

Just a quick update

Alright, just a quick update in case you guys are wondering what I'm up to.

So, the thing is, I'm still slaving my ass off in the hospital. Why? Because the course that I am applying for is full for the month of April until June. So I can only attend the course in July. What course you're wondering?

Well, it's a Safety and Health Officer (SHO) course, which will qualify me to become a uhh... Safety and Health Officer. Despite having the word 'health' in the title, it actually focuses more on safety. So if I told a worker to stop smoking at the work place, it's not because I'm worried that he will get lung cancer, but it's mainly because I don't want him to burn the whole place down. That sort of thing. Maybe it's not the most exciting job in the world, but it sure is better than being yelled at for no apparent reason every single morning. The pay's not as good as my current pay of course, but it will be enough for me to survive in the city.

Anyway, there are 2 types of SHO courses. Full-time, and part-time. The full-time course is a continuous 22-day course, while the part-time course will be held on weekends, so it will take longer to finish the course, approximately 3-4 months. I'm taking the latter, 'cos I'm planning to work on weekdays, and get a little income. I've applied for various healthcare related jobs through jobstreet, and so far I've managed to get shortlisted as a product specialist for a health informatics company. Product specialist basically means I'm gonna be a salesman. And health informatics is basically the IT system for healthcare centres. The pay's not bad, almost as much as I'm making right now, and might be higher if I'm good at it.

So wish me luck guys! Pray that I get the job!
