The Greatest Gift Ever

Bu Yeni: Congratulations! You have been accepted at AAB, you can now go and tell your mother-in-law-to-be that you have a job.

I could never forget the day Bu Yeni said that to me (I have no idea why she said "the mother-in-law-to-be" bit though). I was relieved, well I was unemployed, a fresh graduate, and all I wanted was a job. And boy was I lucky to be recruited at one of the most prestigious companies in the country. I was ecstatic.

As I started working, I had so many mixed feelings. I began by being grateful for having a job in Jakarta. Then after I started my job it was stressful, then I found out that I had such an amazing team. I learned a lot of team work, I appreciate every support, every help, every argument. I love my team.

But a job is just a job, what makes it different in AAB is the atmosphere and the friendship. Just as I entered my second year, I met a lot of new friends which soon became my best friends. Never did I expect to gain so much from this job.

I'm gonna miss being mentored by CHA, REL and BAG.
I'm gonna miss the advise from my first friend in AAB, CAD.
I'm gonna miss being calmed down by DEY with his soft, calm voice.
I'm gonna miss the arguments with RGR, I believe she has learned to be meaner and tougher.
I'm gonna miss our so-called overtime and chits chats between hours with ETH and RWD.
I'm gonna miss CAA's wet hair in the morning and her slow slow response.
I'm gonna miss everything about AAB and everyone in AAB.

If I could crumple AAB into a mini pocketsize keyring, I would. It'll always be a part of me. Peace of mind :D
