I tried to enjoy work and its unbearable burdens. One thing that made things easier was that I knew there are people in the office I can be at ease with. As the Beatles taught everyone, we can get by with a little help from our friends.
Two years later, looking at my batchmates, from eager trainees, now I see officers that exude the air of grizzled vets who eat sniper fire for breakfast. How things change in such a short time.
Here's hoping all my remaining 9 batchmates get a good posting this year. Everyone has really earned it.
I said "remaining" because two have left for new shores. Congratulations to Hot Momma for her posting to Bangkok
and DMX for her posting to Cairo.
