    I resigned from my second job.

    First job tenure: 7.5 years
    Second job tenure: 10 months

    This job taught me a lot and paid me decent, but not enough to cope up with the bullshit and sacrifice, WLB, and happiness.

    I landed a job at one of my dream companies I always wanted to be and possibly the best company in my city. Also the role is B2C in nature and one of only profitable start-ups from India. The domain is second favourite of mine (Music > Art/Events > Travel).

    Second job was in travel domain, world's largest OTA but the timezone fucked my happiness and that is what my first job offered me.

    I could easily score better offers with higher pay and benefits but I was optimising for a work life balance and team in same time zone along with some impacting work.

    I do have some interesting interviews coming up and I am not sure how will I end up performing.

    When I got this first offer, this job hunting season, I initially rejected some silly policies. I regretted the decision and thankfully after having a transparent conversation with the recruiter, I accepted it. Funnily, the resignation from second job isn't making me feel emotional, guilty, or any negative emotion. Which evidently signals that the job was toxic and I had to step out asap.

    The purpose it served in my journey was bring my remuneration to market levels and teach me a lot more skills in just short span.

    Excited to see how the future unrolls. I'll keep my fellows here posted.

    I really want to spend more time here talking and hanging out with you all. Hopefully I shall be back soon. Until then keep safe my lovelies :)
