Tough Decision

I am working in a company where I thought I could secure my future, financially in a way. I've been investing my time and effort for what I believe is worth my while. They offer good compensation, medicare, good working environment, i guess anything you would expect from a modest job. I thought I would last until some of my white hairs show up but lately, it seems I am headed towards the flow of recession. I felt like losing the years I have invested in the company. I decided to resign. Reason: tech issues.

Nowadays we are too dependent on our computer hardwares and the system. Our efficiency is based on how we are able to perform well with time constraints. If we encounter problems on our computer hardware, so is our efficiency. We tend to suffer and lend more of our time dealing with the issues until it is resolved and we are back on track again. This made me miss my target and puts me on the threadline. It is so frustrating to think that this would cost me my job which I tried my best to struggle reporting to for three and a half years and helping myself all the time to wake up during odd hours and it would just end up to this. I don't even have a choice, nor was I given options. I don't believe that my loyalty would put me in vain. If not because of their newly implemented system, I would not end up like this. I would've passed my goals and my expectations and yet I don't hear any consideration. It's a direct "splat" on my face to have lasted this long in this company if they don't realize the fact that setting up their goals can be as easy as 1-2-3 but the ways of achieving it is just not perfect. It's not like math that you would come up with an absolute answer, it is dependent on how it is achieved. Ahhh......really hate it.

Anyways, after few days I was told there's going to be a deliberation from HR. My decision is not final though. It's not that I am tired of my job or I don't like it anymore, 'twas a careless decision out of my frustration. Frustration from the fact that I don't have any choice, not even given any options. I felt like betrayed that out of my being loyal to the company for more than three years now, I would end up in vain just because of what...less than a minute of achieving my goals? I've invested my effort and time with the company and this is simply how it would end up to? This made me think it could've bode well for me had I used to brushing elbows with those in the upper ladder, but it's just not my kind of politics. Politics at work may have some positives but it's just not the person I am. We'll, I am still hoping for some luck here and hope to see some light. Wish me luck too :)

Computer Trouble

My computer failed on me. I haven’t been able to do something about it. I wasn’t able to log in. It’s no longer accepting my password or any passwords I can think of. I was still using it and I turned it off. When I turned it on again because I need to do some paper work, it’s prompting me to enter a password, which is unusual because I don’t set it up to ask for passwords. I entered all the possible passwords I can think of but it’s not accepting it.

I am now back on my feet after reformatting the system and reinstalled a new OS. I can’t figure out to troubleshoot the problem so I ended up formatting the hard disk, losing all my files. I don’t have any partition at all. It’s not so easy a decision though, but I have to make it work. I am still frustrated about it but I can’t think of any other thing to do. I guess it serves as a lesson for me to always partition the drive and make a separate drive for personal files, especially those important ones. So if you haven’t made one, I suggest you do, not unless if you always burn a copy of all important files on a disc. It would be handy also to save it on a disc and label the disc as to it’s contents for future use and make sure to check on them every once in a while to make sure that they are still readable and stored in a cool dry place, away from sunlight. Nothing makes us feel comfortable on these situations other than being ready for the unexpected.
