January Recap

I’ve been meaning to write since I quit my job. It’s almost February and here I am trying to write something as if I’ve been busy for a while. Truth is, I’m just at home most of the time or at the gym choosing what to play in my head while I stretch my arms or run or something.  I haven’t done much work since I resigned and I am really running out of funds. I basically struggled with earning money as a freelancer and I kinda sucked at getting things done. I would really like to blame our noisy apartment for being unsuccessful, but the thing is, the Internet was also not at par with Taiwan’s Internet speed.

The upside of basically chilling at home is you don’t need an alarm clock to tell you that you need to work your ass off. You also don’t need to always be in a hurry. However, I may have slacked a lot instead of having a productive time in cooking or cleaning the house. It’s not boredom that’s making me want to go out, but it’s the freedom to actually do something without always thinking about the time or to be in a hurry. Aside from having the urge to receive a monthly salary, the mere fact that I’m getting lazy to go out and do something worthwhile are eating me alive.

I guess, I just need to find a hobby or something else. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve applied to at least five companies this month and I’m proud to say that I got a job offer in 4 out of the 5 jobs that I’ve applied for. It’s just that I’ve been so picky with what I want to do this year.

Ino and I have just started our reservations in the church and our reception, and there’s still so much to deal with. Most of it are finance related so, we still have to take things at a time. I know that there’s so much pressure from all the preparations and the down payments needed for each wedding aspect. So, it’s really better if I could also earn a little.

I think I’ve written about my thoughts regarding having a simple dream before. To reiterate, I just want a simple life and I want to earn something for myself. I prefer to have simple but attainable dreams. I don’t really aim for unattainable or unrealistic dreams.

So, here I am trying to recap what has happened during my idle month.

Right now, I’m about to start my training in another Korean company. I still don’t know much about the details yet but this company feels like home to me. Probably it’s because of the same people that I used to work with, or the new environment, or probably it’s because it’s a small company. I don’t know. I’ll find out soon and write about it soon.

 

I still have a couple of entries that I haven’t posted. Those entries were taken last year but I am still feeling lazy and time constricted so I cannot post it tonight. However, if time permits then I might post it this February.
