One Month Anniversary in Marketing

Yesterday afternoon, leaving work, I turned back, looked at my desk, and smiled with relief, a sense of accomplishment. I survived a month!
It was a very exciting month. I had to delve in to the depth of a problem from day one. I also had training and other deliverable demanded by other departments with strict due dates to meet. I dropped the ball a couple times which is so unlike me and made me criticize myself more than I should. Yet I did it all. So I am so hopeful for the second month to come. I think I have better hold of this all. My manager, although absent half of this past month for different reasons, has been really supportive and really encouraging.
I am now juggling this new role with my family and a new masters and a new home. We bought a tiny little house in a cole de sac one block away from a well ranked elementary school at the southern western point of San Jose. What I love about the house is that it has a third bedroom I call "the guest room". I am so excited to have stay over guests from now on who can enjoy the comfort at Chez Midnight! That does not apply to this trip of my dear S this time, they need to share the room with A again as we wont move until another month or so.
I have missed watching a nice movie. A very very very nice movie, the kind that engages your mind for some time.
I told A I liked it when it got dark. He said he liked it when it got light and we turned the lights off. I liked that he had such a defined opinion about his liking.
And the second month in marketing begins...

Happy New Home Leila jan :-)

As for the movie, I strongly recommend "the secret in their lives" which I think won the oscar of best foreign film this year or last year. And if I may, I also recommend that you do not read much about the story beforehand and let the movie take you along a fabulous story that would linger in your mind for days to come.

Thanks SS joon! Hope to have you and your H over some time soon.
And the name of the movie itself is enticing. Will try to watch, appreciate the recommendation :)

Congratulations on you new house again. We are so exited to share the room with our dear A again :)

We have recently watched some movies and enjoyed the followings:
1)The Unbearable Lightness of Being (I LOVED it!)
2) The American Beauty
3) Blue (In French language)
4) Heat ( Not the whole story...but I liked the way it looked at the interpersonal relationships)

That's for now :)) Hope you like them.

Thanks Leila jan for the invitation :-) Hope to see you (this time with family) in Toronto again. BTW, I meant the secret in their EYES, not lives.
