and such many more things. These are top of the mind.
In the same period, through all the above things, dad worked in the same company, with same focus, same dedication, same sincerity. Felicitations galore, across all the departments he worked in all those years.
I am in the 6th year of my proffesional career and in my 4th company. Lets not talk about focus, dedication, sincerity.
I already wish to retire. Just that i dont know i'll do what after that?
