本周小感 - 上工的第一個禮拜

開始上班一個禮拜了,也真是挺忙的,每天回到家也沒多餘的精力打開電腦,這會兒終於知道那些每天盯著電腦上班的部落客是怎麼個生活,以後不敢催人家寫文章了...
Started going to the office for a week, we've got such a busy schedule and I'm just totally worn out after work that there's no energy left for turn on the computer. I finally realize how some bloggers live and will never ever leave any message to ask for new reads.

原本的老闆變成小老闆,冒了個大老闆出來,是在回來前就知道。只是,要重新適應一個新的上司,其實也是挺傷腦筋的事,不過星期四第一天開會見到人的感覺良好,我想,至少這兩個多月是不會有太大的問題。
I've got two bosses now. The original boss that I've been working with for almost ten years has become my second boss, and there's another "big boss". I knew that before I came back. However, it's quite a nervous feeling that I have to adapt to a new boss. We met for the very first time during the meeting on Thursday and I can feel he is a kind person. At least there won't be too much trouble in this working period. Fingers crossed!

前天因為一大早要下新竹開會,打破了自己決定"不坐計程車上班"的承諾,遇上了一個很好玩的計程車司機. 聊著聊著難免不去提到自己定居國外的事實,他說:「...人家都是被派出國上班,妳怎麼是回來上班?」後來開會的時候聽到一些分享,讓我回想到自己進入這個行業的初衷,頗有種"自我感覺良好"的感覺。
We had to go to Hsinchu for meeting on Thursday and I eventually broke my own "no taxi" promise. The taxi drive was an interesting person and we chatted for a while. It's hard not to mention that I'm actually living abroad, and he said, "most people are sent abroad for work, how come you "come back" for work?" Some participants of the meeting also shared their thoughts and it reminds me my starting point (or you can say motivation) when I entered this profession. It's such a great feeling.

自由慣了的我,每次回來上班之前都必須要給自己一些心理建設,不過回想這短短幾年間所經歷的事,我還是相信,再怎麼累都是值得的。
I'm working as a free lancer for quite a while and I'm always a bit hesitated to come back for work. However, thinking of what I've been doing in the past few years, I still believe it's worthy of all the hard work and efforts.

我還在想,你是不是被操到昏了~ㄎㄎㄎ...
對了,說正經事,Thelma,我可不可以跟你換歐元硬幣?我想要義大利圖案的5分和1分(我蒐集義大利的獨缺這兩個)...

小熊,
沒有被操到昏啦, 只是下班回到家有電視可以看, 上網的時間少, 就別說寫文章... 我反正做自己喜歡的事就很高興了.
硬幣的事ok啊, 只是大概要等我老公到了再留, 現在我身上完全沒有歐元. 不過這是要怎麼跟你碰法? 我愚人節當天的飛機回義大利喔.

厚 你可以回去做喜歡的事喔
真好奇是什麼事
那麼久才回來嗎
當時說要回去以為你只是回去過年耶
希望你們夫婦新年快樂啦
我一面羨幕你可以自在飛來飛去
一面又可憐你ㄤ 每次都獨居那麼久嗎
上次來了幾次開不了
也無法留言希望今天ok

希望你回台一切愉快~

bear said...

嗯...這個...我也不知道要怎麼跟你交換捏~要不然等你下一次被徵召回國工作時好了...聽說有些國家開始在換新圖案,不知真偽。

Hi Thelma,
Freelance is cool, but I always missed the fun & sociable moments with office colleagues!
Have fun and try not to overwork!

台灣東西好吃,
又有很多電視頻道看,
晚上娛樂又多,
我回台灣時也都很少上網呢,
祝妳在台灣過得愉快喔。

Hi Thelma
這是我回台後第二次上網
每天吃飽睡睡飽吃
真好
因為我希望給我女兒吃新鮮的糊 ,
而不是罐頭食品的關係
我是不可能去台北找你玩了
就看你有沒有機會來台中玩玩囉
enjoy your life
