Happy People

"Pinanindigan ko na itong Jen Never Blogs. I never blogged."

Obviously, I haven't written anything on this blog in a LONG while! I have so many food and travel posts in my Drafts but I don't have the will or the time to finish them. Life has been overwhelming lately. I was too busy running around, making things happen that when I finally got a full night's sleep the other day, everything finally caught up with me. Suddenly, it just sank in. After weeks of denial. I just finally let go of the longest relationship I had--my employment with Hewlett Packard.

That was six years, and three and a half months of my life, only two weeks longer from another long relationship, the one with my last ex. (I'm a very loyal ~bae~, you see!) It didn't end really well with HP in a way, because I kept to myself during the past few weeks. I didn't want to see people. I was in denial that it was finally happening, but now that I think about it, it was because of legit sadness from the thought that I will be separating myself from a second family in Manila. It was like being in a breakup. I knew it was coming but I couldn't accept it. I knew I needed this to happen, but I was still holding on.

I don't have regrets in leaving HP. It was a life decision I needed to make because I was already too comfortable being mediocre with my career. What I maybe should have done though was to have bade everyone in the office a proper goodbye.

Hewlett Packard will always be a part of my life. This is where I made and nurtured lasting friendships. This is where I knew what I wanted to be in life, and how to be courageous enough to try to go and get to where I want to be.

I never got to send my farewell email because I already lost my email access, so I'll take this space to thank everyone I crossed paths with during my tenure--my ITO-GSD team, SAP Practice team and managers (who can kill it at ballroom dancing,) my Coke Appdev team, my Sharp GirlsGroove@HP, my Friday Night Club, and even the ISS employees who never fail to greet me every day. THANK YOU, EVERYONE!!! You will all be missed.
