Home-based got me stuck at home for one year. WTF! Yes, one year. I quit my regular job to study acourse and hope to fly away from this god-forsaken country. That’s an exaggeration. I don’t want to renounce my homeland but financial success in the is elusive. It gives me the feeling that you have to be a Magna of graduate of Ateneo or UP to become a company CEO.
So, here I am, blogging, hoping to relieve my boredom and stress. It can be fun, home-based work. There’s no heavy traffic, noisy public, no pollution. But I must tell you, there is doom. Check out my schedule.
- 9:00 am – wake up for five minutes and return to sleep
- 10:00 am – what a shame, so I have no choice but to stay awake
- 11:30 am – rise from bed
- 12:00 pm – eat lunch
- 1:00 pm – sit down in front of the computer and warm up
- 2:00 pm – work while listening to the music of — the latest —
- 5:00 pm – rest
- 6:00 pm – eat dinner
- 7:30 pm – 4:00 am – work
To this day, I am still wondering why I whine about the lack of social life, love life and a decent career. These are my choice. I prefer to live in the confines of my room and try to make money. However, I do not see anything wrong with that until I along with a classmate started our. We were assigned to care for a paralyzed senior (89 y/o), single (never been kissed and never been touched), and nearly abandoned.
It was a pity honestly. Seeing her lying in bed for nine years makes me think, ‘is this going to be my future?’
Lola Zeny, as she is called, used to be ain UP high. She’s good at what she did back then, having been awarded teacher of the year circa 1960(?). But she devoted her life to work to be able to send her nephews and nieces to school. Despite that, these once little critters are nowhere to be found. Two of Lola Zeny’s brother had died and only one was left. We asked about his whereabouts but her carers do not know any updates.
Members of Lola Zeny’s households say she used to be a devil, always irate and arrogant. What do we know? All we saw was time passing by an old woman who I assume was dying to get up again and teach.
I do hope I was not zapped into my future. I better get a life as soon as we recover financially.
