For me, Fridays mark the end of a week. Saturdays and Sundays are my days of rest and contemplation for everything I have done for the past week.
Don’t get me wrong. As the title suggests, it is a collection of what I am frustrated and stressed with in a week. It doesn’t mean that I am merely complaining, I only want to write things that bug me to get some of the steam off my mind (stress kills, ya know?)
So here are the things I’d like to share in my post Friday Frustrations post.
1. The choice between looking for a job or doing what I love.
I graduated a business-related course last December 2014. Since then I am in an effort to seek my first job (because it was pretty much the goal after college, right?) to no avail. Currently, I am waiting for the results from the second interview I had last week.
Some time last February, I opened The Wandering Lass Designs, a shop where I sell my lettering services, mainly for bookmarks making, but I also do other prints. Maybe because I lack the marketing skills, the shop is not really much known in Manila yet. Also, I wasn’t able to focus on the shop because of a previous reunion I c0-organized.
What bugs me is whether I continue looking for employment or exert more effort to my shop and make it my main source of income. My mother wants me to be employed first, but my mind tells me to manage the shop instead.
2. The urge to do everything in my 20s.
I love to surround myself with people who are passionate about what they do. I have a friend who has almost literally achieved everything (being able to live by herself and support her needs, have a loving and supportive boyfriend, high grades in subjects), an author in Wattpad who has published five of her stories (one of them had a TV adaptation and another with a future movie adaptation) and able to support herself too, and a future teacher who is able to pursue her love for history.
What I see in them? Passion. They are able to do the things they love, and they also do other things like travel and meet new people.
And here I am, still cannot figure out what I want to do in my life.
We all have frustrations in our life. But I believe that the Lord is cooking something good for me, I just have to wait for it.
