This might be an uber-late post. However, the word “late” does not exist in my vocabulary right now. After all, this signifies an important transition in my life.
I am always been proud about being a Student Training Assistant. This feeling never fades away since the first time I took the job some 2 years ago. It’s my first job- my first taste of reality, of real people and work scenario. I’ve learned so many things for the past years which includes a lot about personal development. There are things which you can only learn from the classroom that cannot be applied in real scenes. It’s a case to case bases, Im sayin’.
But with these years, I’ve met people who have become significant in my entire years of learning. Those are the people you can really lend on in times of hardships. Thank you especially to my former superiors. I’ve always thought about being so inferior until I realized how great her influence towards me the moment I left the office. How could I not recognize that? True, she’s been strict but it’s always been for our good. How much I admired her for being strong, firm and very professional- qualities that you would really look up to. And somehow, I realized how much I’ve grown from those experiences, considering of her letting me see what has been unnoticed. Another superior whose always been eager to learn and her warmth reflects to the whole ambiance of the office. And to the whole staffs. It feels nicer each day to work someone so responsible and generous for the efforts.To my newly-assigned office, how great it is to be rendering your duty in a totally-opposite environment. There’s no pressure except the fact that I came from a busier, more pressure place.
Also to my colleagues, whom I can always hang on in times of trouble. There’s one who is quite strict and can lose her patience at times, but I admire her for the dedication she has for her works and to my co-STA’s. She’s always been my partner when thinking about the pending requests and all other staffs which I can’t handle. A lot of them has this uber-loaded good vibe that radiates to every specimens close to them. The office will never be the same without these people. haha While other people choose to be quite, seems to be living outside the universe but wait.. There’s a lot behind those first expressions. They can be extra bipolar, can possess numerous personalities.But most of all, I luve the way how each of us respect one another. Eventhough some of us are no longer in the office, the excitement each of us would feel whenever we see each other around, I could say nothing has changed. So for the last moment as an STA, nothing beats the happiness to see them longing for each other. It actually happened during birthday celebration of Khem- the President for the BUGO Clan.
First comes the eating time. It’s a celebration after all. Hahah
Lastly, shouldn’t I also forget to include semi-formal LOL photos. Hahah We came from an office, so formality is a must all the time.
Haha.. Okay, Pardon me. Just can’t get enough of it. Here’s the groufie.
There are too much stories to tell behind these wackiness. Stories about leaving to reach our fullest potentials but will never be forgotten. Stories about farewells and beginnings.
