Sep. 25th, 2003

Earlier today, I had the follow-up chat to my evaluation at work. They're gonna move me. I didn't live up to the expectations my boss had of me when I started at Sales & Marketing. This is not my fault, and I shouldn't see it as failure. As she said: "You are pure gold, and full of qualities and potential, just not in Sales." So for the next few months I can keep myself busy with the Marketingplans for the outlets in the Hotel, but all Sales-related activities have been taken away. No more travelling, no more phoning contactpersons, no more representing the hotel abroad.

F to the u-c-k. That's what made the whole job interesting. In the mean time I also have to decide what new direction I want to take. Do I want to stay at the hotel (for both my boss and the lady from Personell have told me they don't want to see me leave)? Do I still want to try and pursue a career in Sales, but elsewhere? I don't know. At least I'm discovering what I'm good at and what I'm not so good at. I can tell I like to work on a project-basis, give me a project and I'll dive right in to it. Research is also a big quality. I speak four and a half languages, I like to work with people and guests. I like to entertain. I do NOT like telemarketing.

A logical choice for me would be to go back to 'the floor', back to F&B. Thing is, I've had it with irregular hours, working nights and weekends. How the hell will I ever find a job that seems tailormade for me? At least I'm still safe until march next year, after that, time will tell.

    Respect hoor, echt super! (Misschien is de nacht van de vluchteling iets voor je?)

    Grappig - ik had geen idee dat er ook whatsappende studentjes meededen, alleen serieuze renners.

    Best of luck with that. But best to man up and do it that risk losing more eyesight later. :/

    If you wanna go for a drink after that, lemme know.

    I hear ya! The reason why I haven't even considered getting laser surgery to correct my eyesight is that the thought of having someone messing with my eyes and me not being completely knocked out…

    It is a routine operation, but yeah, I understand the anxiety.
    The idea of people fucking around with my eyes, rgrjhrhajanklxk..
