Parting ways on good terms

Due to our impending move to Bull Shoals, I put in my resignation last Thursday, effective October 16th, which is actually two weeks earlier than I had intended to resign. Even if hubby had not been moved to Bull Shoals, I would still have to resign from the bank where I am working. I would be gone for a while, a little over 2 months for our wedding and vacation in the Philippines so that's really part of our plan for me to quit my job. After a year of working for Bank of the Ozarks in the Information Systems department, I have learned so many things especially about computers. I still don't speak perfect English, lol, but I know I've made a considerable improvement with my confidence and ability to converse with Americans in their language. I consider myself lucky for having been given a chance to work in a bank for a first job in the U.S. The people that I've worked with were all awesome. I'm not saying I've worked in a perfect world but they handle stress, conflicts, differences and problems at work in a very professional way. Modesty aside, I was touched when my boss told me that I am a very good asset to our department and he's not thrilled to let me go. As a matter of fact, he let me know that should I wish to work again, that I'd be welcome to rejoin the bank. Of course, it's not going to be in the same department because I.S. is only in Ozark but we have several branches in Arkansas and he's willing to give me a very good recommendation should I wish to apply. I think that's so nice of him to do that and I'd definitely love the chance to work with them again. But I'd like to rest for a while when I get back from the Philippines. Though it's comforting to know that I have one best option in the near future. I'm going to miss them all!
