Greener Pastures

‘The time is up! Please stop writing and hand your exam papers in.’

Ah, nothing sounded quite like those lovely words uttered by the invigilator. Why? Because they could only mean one thing: the term has now officially come to an end. And soon after I heard that announcement, a great sense of relief washed over me. My walk even felt lighter with each step as I got out of the room. The psychological weight that I’d been carrying on my shoulders for the past six weeks disappeared miraculously. Don’t get me wrong, though. I love every bit of my time being a student, but it’s so hard being one when you’re working full-time at the same time. However, now that the term’s over, it feels sort of strange to have time on my hand, albeit having to work off the clock almost every weekday. And I sort of miss being with my group members--Kelly, Tanima, Diyas and Vildan.

Having said that, the term has ended and so has my time working at this office. Well, not now but soon, anyway. After exactly one year and fifteen days of working as an audit junior, I’ll be starting a new job at a new office. I’ve truly enjoyed my time working at this audit firm (I really have) but the long commute has taken a toll on me since I’ve started going to school again.

I’m not sure how it’ll go–migrating from audit line to a commercial line--but hopefully, the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, God willing.
