Adjusting To The New Job Routine

Reading newspaper has been a habit to me. But before I go to the news, I read the horoscope first (smiles). I was stunned with what I read my horoscope stated in the Coffee News:

(Jan. 21-Feb. 19)
“Small changes in your job routines are likely. Although you may wish to stick with what has worked in the past, you may have to adjust to a different set of conditions.”

This relates to the job I am in right now. Everything is new…the job field, working environment, co-employees, the system, and even the rate of pay. I used to do office works in my previous jobs. In fact, I worked in the Accounting departments before. Truly I wanted to stick with the nature of work I did in the past but it does not make sense to me now because the job competition here is very high. I am so thankful to be hired in the retail company. And yes, there are different set of conditions that I have to follow. Besides working at day time on weekdays, I have to work on the assigned schedule which includes working in the evening and on weekends too. It is a big adjustment, really.

Back to My Reading Habit

Reading is my favorite past time before. I read anything that catches my interest. From comic books to newspapers, I appreciate that. When I was in my elementary days I was diligent. I just sit somewhere quiet with my books beside me and started doing my homework. Then I will just spend my extra time hanging out with my friends in late afternoons. When I was in high school, I spend my vacant time in the library. Since we don’t have television, my siblings and I were content answering activity books and reading stories until we are ready to go to sleep.

In my college days, it was different. I stayed with my cousins in Manila and they have almost all the modern stuff at their house. There I began to stuck myself in watching television, playing the play station, or stay up late doing nothing at all. I forgot the do the thing I love to do. I forgot to feed my mind even with single information from the daily paper once in a while. The laziness went on until I got a very stressful job.

I realized how much time I have wasted doing non-sense. But I guess it’s not too late for me. I want to go back to my reading habit and I am glad to say that I am engaged to it now. Reading gives me additional knowledge and so is to everyone. Apparently, it enhances our proficiency and good comprehension.
