This post is inspired by Moody Panties’ Obsession and dedicated to my great colleagues/friends/family at GUST. I miss you all.
I still remember all the days I spent at GUST. The happy and the sad ones, the gloomy and the joyful ones and how all of you helped me through the worst!!! It wasn’t easy getting there coz after i graduated, i went there full of hope that i will get their easily but since i was a fresh graduate, they told me either u work as a secretary or secretary, i didnt have nay other option because i didnt have any experience, i refused ofcourse. I’m an english literature BA graduate, how can u hire me as a secretary?! I jumped from job to job gathering experiences from here and there until i had the courage to go back again and tell them there you go! surprisingly, the HR director remembered me and hired me immediately as an administrative Assistant in the college of Business Administration. I didn’t want to be in that post but i didnt have any choice back then, i was trying to escape from teaching, so i said yes! and after 6 months i was clever enough to convince the HR director to take me coz i was dying to be an HR Officer.
HR was boring but the team made exciting with all the digging, gossiping about new employees, who’s getting what and who’s gonna be kicked out. It was really fun and our boss was one of a kind Mrs. Fawziya Sultan, she was the best. I remember every morning we gather up in her office around her table, sipping our coffees and just chatting about random stuff. aahhhh i miss those days, it was heart breaking news we had to deal with when she resigned to stay with her sick mom and help her through her illness, but we had to deal with it! We managed to work without a boss for almost 6 months til that monster came from the US, he was American Lebanese who got fired from his work over there and came to make our lives as hell as possible! I had many great Lebanese friends and no one seemed to have any kind of attitude like this guy had. Mr. Abdulhaleem Qassim, yes that was his name (I HATE YOU)! He made my life like hell! he used to make smth big out of nothing! I tried to make his life as hell as i can and i did but it was exhausting! I got fed up and it made cry everyday! Until i got the courage to resign after 2 beautiful years i spent over there with kindest nicest people you will ever meet in ur life :)
