One of the biggest crisis but i am still alive

Dear Friends, I do very much want to write and keep in contact with you guys, but currently think I am facing some of the biggest mess that has ever occurred to meso I am tired mentally, physically just from the issue.   Wanted to write and share but now I am tired of it and I need to do something urgently about it.  Maybe after the event is settled I will write. Take the chance to apologise to pp like dear friend Jiahui cause I have not replied her mail about my updates, Huayang and Chengho for not sharing cause I am tired of talking about it.  And of course tks to my classmate Eugene who shared with me about IA back in Singapore and how I should cherish the chance I have here now at Wove.  Sorry for not replying.. the mess.Anyway, just paste some emails that will more or less tell u the shit I am in.  For those who miss me, maybe good news cause you get to see me sooner again!!! Haa.. Take care back home.

Dear #######,On March 6, I decided to talk to Virginia first and not you firstbecause I am still keen to stay at Wove if i can still get to do mywaste water treatment plant project down the road of my internship.  Iwas hoping that i can work things out with her and then i have no needto trouble you or NOC.  Immediately after calling her, I called you toinform you and in my subsequent email on the same day , i also mentionthat I still have to get your permission for a transfer, hence i wasstill seeking your approval and if you did not agree. I would havejust stayed at Wove.  In my conversation with Virginia, she  also gaveme a month to find another job.On March 22, Virginia approached me and ask me if I like to stay causeshe intends to get Fudan students to help with the project. Althoughshe originally gave me a month to make a decision, i can't possiblyask her hold a position for me just because i cannot find a job andthen leave later again when i find one, hence i told her that i liketo leave.Of course it is my own silliness in not approaching many companieswhen finding a job initially.   Originally, I thought that if I cannotfind a job, I will just take on the assignments that Virginia gives meand do it.  To me, NOC is a valubale experience and I have nointentions of leaving NOC Shanghai earlier and that is only if NOCShanghai wants to send me back , then i have no choice but to leave.Currently, there is a non-profit organisation called Roots and Shootsthat is interested in taking me but they have to wait till their headto return on 05/04/06 before she can interview me.  I will CC you theemail when i reply to them.I also have another offer from Total Environmental Solutions however,we have not arranged a time for the interview yet.Can i have a rough gauge of the amount that i have to pay back or atleast the items that I have to repay so that i least i can betterinform my worried family back home?Can I also have your hp so that i can talk to you about it over thisweekend?  I prefer not to call your office line during office hours asi don't think it is nice to talk about this issue with my colleaguesall around.Perhaps i could have handled the matter better by communicating morewith youpersonally, however all I am doing now is just to follow mypassion/interest which i believe is the basic ingredient to asuccessful entrepreneur and which is what i came all the way here justto learn.Thank you for your time.Yours Sincerely,
