New Challenges, New Responsabilities

From Grapefruit to Educatus

Last Friday was my last day as Grapefruit, and to me it was sad as hell. I had planned leaving six months ago, and I knew March was the month I'm off... But even so, leaving friends behind is tough. I'm not a faint-heart, and I didn't expect this to get to me, but it seems it did. I just know I won't be able to help paying them visits often.

Now I work at Educatus, and professionally, the road ahead is quite shiny: all I have to do is what I do best. The major income for me is that I get to do a project I've been dreaming to do since quite a while ago. It's a big plan, and there are lots of risks, especially now in the beginning, but I have faith we will succeed, even though we're starting from mud-level and we're aiming mountain-peak high. I have good partners make for a good ride, there's no way we'll fail.

Yet still, there's a glimpse of doubt in my guts, and I can think of a million reasons why I should go back to Grapefruit right this instant, and a million more why I should stick with the plan. I'm a man of my word, and there's lots of excitement about the big project I'll be working on, which is why I must stick with my decision. I can only hope a year from now I'll be laughing about ever doubting my decision.

Good luck!! The statistics show that leaving Grapefruit is the guarantee for success, but even so, I have nostalgic moments also :) Paying visits really helps :) All the best!

@Iulian: Thanks!

@Radu: That's because the Grapefruit experience taught us so much, and so well. There's a lot to thank for to Grapefruit. :)
