Inbetween

Inbetween - in the middle of two things or places.
It's such a complex place to be.
There are residual feelings of nostalgia and relief from the place before, and excitement and anticipation for whats next. I am inbetween jobs.
People sometimes say that when they don't know where they are going to next. It's a fancy way of saying "I'm jobless" or "I haven't figured out what I'm going to do next". Well I guess that state is complex on it's own as well.
But that's not my case (luckily? ;) )I know where I am going to next. And I'm going there tomorrow. But this past month - the notice period has been interesting to put it mildly.
Being in an organization, one that involves excessive community travelling time, for 3 years no less (!) is pretty much like having a new family or being at college ... there is a community you belong to, identify with and get attached to. So suddenly having to leave that - to me felt like I was cheating…

Disconnected: Who can't do it

I'm gonna start off with a mini list of people who should not/ cannot try this experiment
Each with obvious reasons, you'll know ;)
People in luuurrrrvvveeee Parents of little kidsPeople in sales operationsJob seekers You see, during the floods, a major part of the city faced extended blackouts. There is this guy at my workplace who actually preferred to travel through the rain to get to the office and charge his phone so he could talk to his girlfriend. So I'm guessing that he has a snowball's chance in a forest fire for surviving 15 days without his phone :)

Parents of babies probably won't even notice if they have their phone or not. But parents of little ones at play school or primary school definitely would need phones to feel secure that their kids are safe. The times, they are a changing, and the world as well. So :)

I see guys who take care of industrial operation having two phone, both of which are ringing constantly, I'm sure they would welcome a phone…
