It’s almost been a month since I resigned from my previous job. I have relished on the past few weeks waking up anytime I wanted to, then going back to sleep again. Feels like high school summer. And for the past few days, it’s been a sick season for me. I’ve been under the weather due to colds. I couldn’t go out, break a sweat healthily, and I wasn’t up for the task in taking care of my business (seeing that it was handling food and giving it out to students).
Unemployment bombs. Really. I’m slowly depleting my savings and it’s not a happy thought. I’ve only applied to one company and although a lot of people might question the wisdom of my decision, let me just state that the vacancy I have applied for has been my dream job ever since I was still in high school. For almost the whole month, I’ve gone through a panel interview, battery of Psychology tests, and the English proficiency. There’s another test that I’m still scheduled for… with the date not yet set.
Quite… saddening really. But I’ll live.
One thing I’m thankful for is the time I get to spend catching up on my reading, and watching series finales to unfold.
When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change.

Begrudgingly (to say the least), I resolved to make the best out of my small business. It suddenly became clear to me how I envisioned how it would look like to make it genuinely appealing to my target clientele. Since our space is a bit small, a quaint snack place would fit right in. This morning, I started in making a rough draft for my Ice Craze when I received a phone call from the HR of my alma mater asking me if I was still available for the position I have applied for and that I am to report on Monday to the unit I was interviewed on, and go to the HR office on Saturday!
I’m not yet 100 % certain if I’ve been accepted, but things are looking up!
Wish me luck on both my endeavors!
