They've all been screaming their hearts out "change is coming" since the election. They even made a bet if there's going to be a change at work too. I don't know about everyone else but I guess my work is about to. Yup, I "think" I'm up for a promotion by title but not by pay. I'm not sure if I like it considering all the things I've been planning ahead but I don't want to reject the idea since it's something that may help me improve.
I also don't think the others are gonna like it because I'm most certain they don't like me. They don't have to tell it to my face because they already told my boss without even talking to me. I remember when I was new, I was told by my boss that they got my back but in the end, it was just my boss and everyone else just turned their backs on me, even scolded me for asking. I don't know if it has changed but for now, I'm staying on the other side of that wall.
My mentee asked me once why I'm not close to any of them. I gave a different answer but I guess, it's mostly because they intimidate me with the wall they placed when I was a newbie and a nobody. Well, I'm still a nobody but I don't want to leave my job for the wrong reasons. I mean, where ever I go, there will be people who doesn't like me who would belittle me. Right now, the only reason I'm staying is because of the fact that I love my job. I really do... I just hope that is enough, then again, if in two years it doesn't work out, I still have to be ready to move.
I can always go back to my first love anyway, but next time, the terms will be different.
