Two roads diverged in a concrete jungle.

And I've finally taken the one more frequently traveled. That's right - I've finally 'veered off' the natural course of my qualification and opted for a career in customer service instead. Some people argued - why CS? I'd say, "Why NOT CS?" Unintentionally, this is the only thing close to conversing in English properly outside of teaching English that I was accustomed to. Indeed, the most heated argument would be how I would withstand the complaints, and my answer is: "I don't know". I frankly have no idea. I DO know that there's a HUGE difference between complaining as a CUSTOMER and ENTERTAINING one. Frankly speaking again, I am nervcited (nervous + excited) to venture into this field. I am nervous for all the telltales of my friends who have been CSE's for all these while. At the same time, I am excited for the opportunity to learn new things. After all, learning starts from cradle to the grave, no? Undoubtedly, a lot of questions are clouding my mind as to what I can expect come this Monday. A lot of "ifs" and "what-ifs". I would be lying if I said I do NOT miss teaching. Teaching has always been my ideal ever since I was in primary school. Okay, maybe in secondary. However, as much as I love it, I have to let it go, no? Didn't I read somewhere that letting go is part of loving someone/something? Can I conveniently say it's a part of growing up? Ah..I shall not bitch about the good ol' days. I'd like to propose a toast for a fresh new start. To a firm and solid career in the banking industry, and to the advancement in the social ladder. Ameen.
