Last week, I was in such a terrible shape. My friend was kidding that when she first saw me Friday night, she had the impression that I just got out from very intensive labor work. That' a good reminder that I should learn to savor the experience and be happy. Thus, Monday morning of this week, I decided to start my happy project.
What is this happy project about? 
I had planned to quit my current job some time in October and go back to school so that I can join my love of the life and do my PhD part time (it is supposed to be a full-time thing, but I promised myself I will do it part-time, leaving time also for my passionate plans).October is still four months ahead of me and I can hardly grasp even a small piece of that joy. Plus sometimes every day of work is to some extent a torture for me. 
The core of my happy project is that I will stay happy during every single day of this till the real happy day comes, regardless of what happened at work, regardless of my achievements that day. Of course I will try my best to learn and contribute, but just to care less is really important. On top of that, I will observe my work life from the perspective of a third person. 
Day 1- Monday Special
During our weekly planning meeting, Boss No. 2 voted for A and B to go visit a customer and close a project together. It seems to be fine for everybody until C stand up to suggest otherwise. His statement was that there were too many tasks involved that B will not be able to close the project with A. Instead, he needs to go with A and make it happen. At the same time, the many tasks that he mentioned, he cannot come out with a specific list but just know that it is very advanced.
Then a vote has been triggered. Now, nobody stands for the option of only A & B. Instead, everyone tends to be neural or change to another idea. So the conversation had come to the point that A,B and C will get together after the meeting to review the tasks and then decide who will go with A. Of course, during the next day, a flight ticket was booked for C. 
It was interesting when I start to observe from a third perspective. In the business world, for typical management mindset, only profit matters and whatever gets the job done go first. That's essentially true. However, new people need to grow and if things continue like this, new people will grow slowly and it is poor training. I understand that customer comes first for my boss. However, I was wondering what will be our mindset-driven CEO say if he was to make the decision? 
Day 3- Wednesday Highlight
Wednesday became the highlight of the week as I successfully removed the obstacle that has been stopping a project for so long. It is our first collaboration with a top-tier company and they are not paying us until we prove with the result. And it worked on Wednesday. 
It was a team work involving multiple sides, mainly my team and the company. The process has been delayed due to causes that are hard to control, troubleshooting was delayed as every team member has other things to care and any step can go wrong if no quality check measure is applied. That's when I learned the importance of quality check and dedication. Project management is not rocket science but you need not neglect any project. Prioritize and set a goal.
On the other aspect, by solving this problem, tens of thousands will be mailed to my company bank  account. There is no way that I can earn this much by myself, but if I didn't move, this profit will pass us as well. That showed the importance of a platform for a person to shine. Without proper platform, value will be covered. With an empty platform, value simply doesn't exist. 
The ongoing goal is to identify platforms where you can realize you passion and contribute.
World cup weekend
A large part of my weekend is spent on HJ. I became more and more involved with this community, where I feel myself getting so close to my true passion. Bmp said that no need to doubt if it makes sense to dedicate so much time or not, just do it if I like. And that's what I've implemented.
 This Thursday was the first day of the World Cup at Brazil. Honestly, I've never watched any World Cup before and this year I started to care  as there are lots of activities on HJ as well.  Plus my best girl friend was also very much into it. Thus, I started to try something new——watch the game and guess the winner.
It has been super fun. I bet Italy and cote d'Ivoire. I won both. Soccer game, I started to realize, is a passionate activity and there are always things you can learn from each. You know that Japan was performing very well during the first half, and then cote d'Ivoire scored two within 5 min after Drogba joined. Anything can happen and it can happen so quickly before you can even realize. Plus the world cup game with spicy fish bowl, watermelon and mango, can anything be better than this?
Sunday can be less fun than Saturday because Monday is getting closer. For the sake of my happy project,  I decided to spend Sunday as if it were Saturday. Then I am happy now.
Next week, two of my colleagues will be on vocation, another on business travel, leaving only three of us in the technical team. There will be a great challenge as I will be the leader to close a project. Let's see what will happen.

Always, be happy.

Argentina Vs Bosnia, I bet Argentina, not a soccer fan and not knowledgable on the team as well, but I like this country for some other reasons. Good luck soccer gambling.
