I am actually still alive, folks. A lot — and I mean, a lot — has happened in the past month that I can’t even begin to put them all into words. So, I keep putting off writing a blog post about what’s going on in my life lately.
And then more things keep happening and of course, it gets harder and harder for me to write about them all hence, the lack of update on this tiny web space.
But I figured that it was high time I update this blog and let you know what’s been going on in my life for the past few weeks (not that anybody really cares because hello, I’m no Kardashian, LOL).
So, I FINALLY QUIT MY JOB.
I’ve been ranting and whining about how much I hate my job on this blog for god knows how long, and one day, I decided to just fuck it and finally leave. I was very unhappy with my job and it has caused me one too many mental breakdowns and issues so I decided that my mental health is far more important than anything else. So I quit.
The decision wasn’t easy but it wasn’t all that hard, either. Days prior to that fateful day, I was literally having nightmares about my job and I would wake up crying — no, more like bawling my eyes out and I knew at that point that it was time.
I’ve been in the BPO industry (aka call center) for 8 fucking, godforsaken years and I just couldn’t take it anymore. It’s a thankless job with little to no reward (of any aspect) and I really don’t care much for it.
This is the first time that I quit my job with no intention at all of ever going back to the fucked up industry. Before, it was always just a company switch but still basically dealing with the same old shit.
This time, though, I just could not even bear the thought of even going back. Seriously, just thinking about doing it again (taking in calls and dealing with foreigners who think so little of me and the work that I do) is causing me to actually break down in tears. NOT COOL.
So right now, I’m a home-based freelancer, willing to do short of anything illegal. I must say, there’s nothing more freeing. After 8 fucking long years, I feel like I can finally breathe again.
