Times They Are A'Changin'

Just received a letter informing me to attend a briefing on the 19th of October 2006. My director will be giving the briefing and with her few words, she will change my life. Not just my life but a few hundred others as well...

I will find out that I have been given a promotion. Good.
I will find out whether or not I stay in the office... but this would mean I will be low in the promotion rankings.
Or I am posted back to school as one of the principal's right hand men... this would mean I will be relatively higher up in the promotion rankings and will become a principal sooner.

I don't really care where I work as long as I get to stay in the Kota Kinabalu district. As long as I can drive to work from home and not risk falling asleep at the wheel. And school's a pretty neat place to work in cos you meet creative young people every day as opposed to the office. And the long weeks of holidays end of the year are pretty attractive too.

In the office, November and December always means long hours writing reports closing stuff for the year and planning for the next year. I always have to force holidays by booking holidays in places that make it impossible for my boss to cancel my leave.
