An earlier than usual status meet was called for. And the project manager broke the news to us gently.
I don’t know if this is an answered prayer but aren’t answered prayers supposed to give us pure bliss? Well this one does not. For some odd reasons, there’s a drop of tear waiting to be freed at this very moment. I may be ranting here and there how demanding my tasks are but truth be told, I love being a part of BI. I’m happy here. The people makes all the hard work worth it. Now that the news is out, I get the impression that every time I feel immensely attached to a team at work, the project has to end. And the short notice doesn’t help. Wrapping things up in a few days is mental and emotional torture. Really.
And if there’s any consolation to this, it’s that spark of hope that I'll be transferring to a better work environment earlier than I had planned. Is this see you soon, A********?
