what I would want to be

I haven't been totally slacking you know. After being jobless for 3 weeks now, besides enjoying my 10am wake up time and the series marathon that goes on wee hours of the night, I spend some of my days at my in-laws shop.

D's parents are entrepreneurs and ever since mama started her dialysis sessions, D being in Pampanga, the tinderas  are the ones left to manage it which mama was not happy about. D's sister managed it for a more than a month but ended up having lots of debts because she's stupid like that. Mama forbade her to go or else, the business will end up bankrupt. 

Now that I don't have a job, I decided to help out in managing the business.

You see, I never see myself and thought of myself as being an entrepreneur. After 3 weeks of managing the shop, that's when I wanted to be one. Just like that. I can manage my time and be my own boss. Having no diploma didn't give me much choice when it comes to work. I end working as a tutor or at a BPO industry, again. Pays well but I don't want to end up still working as a callcenter agent when I'm like 40. This is also the time when I realized how important having a diploma is. 

Shoulda-woulda-coulda huh, really, mama knows best. :)

I started becoming a human nature dealer a week ago. If you read my previous posts, I do love their products. That's a good start right? Tried and tested by me and at the same time, good practice for my sales talk.;) How's it working so far? Had a few orders, still getting the hang of it.

If  were able to practice and know the ways on how to be a successful entrepreneur, I will move on to my next step which is owning a clothing shop and  a BonAppetea franchise. I might need to work at another call center to earn my pang puhunan but i assure you, that will be my last. It's nice to have plans for a better next year.  Am hoping. Wish me luck! :)

my life ain't that bad ;)

I am broke and jobless, my laptop needs repair which would cost me more than I can afford of course and D won't be spending the holidays with us.

Loosing my job at this time of year is not how I want my year to end of course. I have anticipated the fact that the job is not for me months before they gave me the thumbs down. Being a reservation-sales agent is not my forte, anything that has to do with quotas, I am below average. But then again, being broke during the holidays sucks big time. :(

My laptop is useless as crap. I had it repaired but gave up on me after a week. LCD needs to be replaced and that would cost me half the price of a new netbook. Since I am now a bum mom, having my laptop repaired is not a top priority. My sister left her iPad hence this post.

As for D not spending the holidays with us this year, not that he wanted it to, it's just that he needs to be on hiatus for so many good reasons. We will be spending it with him on the 23rd  but not sure for Christmas eve. 

There are days when I can say "it sucks to be me" and I indeed feel like the most unlucky person but those are just "some" days. The rest of the year, if I rate it from 1-5, the level will be a 3-ish close to 4.  This year might not have a grand ending for me but it's all good. I still have a lot of things to be grateful about like... well, family and good health (not so cliche if I may say).

Next year, everyone hopes for a better one. I am a bit scared on what 2013 has in store for me at the same time a bit excited because I have plans and hopefully, stars and planets will aline to help me achieve it.
