At the time of timing up this post, I would have finished my stint of National Service. Anyone who has served their time in the Army deserves a pat in the back and I would say them “Congrats on surviving the 2 years of torture”, as what my medical officer have said to me.
The whole journey was indeed tiring but I’ve learnt much by observing how an organization functions from an employee’s point of view (Technically a soldier’s POV, employer = Army, employees = Soldiers). How major mistakes are actually an accumulation of minor mistakes and seemingly harmless assumptions, how bootlicking works at any level and ranks supersede skills. Being cynical helps keeping me sane at times.
In a sort of unexplainable way, I felt that I have matured and have the ability to understand people’s views, opinions and ideas in a much deeper level. On a physical level, I am much more buff now, with muscle here and there, though as of time of writing, I’m getting lazier ^^;
Now that I’m out of the Army, I’m pretty much free to do whatever I can. Getting this blog back on active this on the checklist, but it would definitely take some time given the amount of time I have not been blogging and also being out of touch with anime.
In short, I’m loving my new found freedom. And to those enlisting soon, ORD LOH!
