A New Jobless Life

Jazzmint Work

I made a bold decision 1.5 months ago and tender my resignation from HP. It was probably a shocking news to many. What brought me to this decision? To be honest, it’s been a constant struggle at work for sometime. It was a constant battle of issues after issues which leads to me to believe that this project could be cursed LOL. The client was a total challenge and not having all the support needed from the management from time to time makes life at work even tougher.

Matters at the home front didn’t help either. I felt bad to neglect my kids as I was struggling with the demands of work and kids both at the same time. It’s really not fun having to work every other weekend and week nights when I was supposed to spend those quality time with both my kids and Hon.

After many months of consideration and discussion with Hon and both the kids, I have decided to take a break. After all, life is short. I resigned, without a job and told myself I’m taking this break to recuperate my brain cells. So here I am, updating my blog at a very rare time of the day, as today is my 1st day of life without a job after close to 15 years.

Many colleagues & friends ask what do I have in mind once I stop work. Seriously, there’s plenty of work to be done. I’ve put a lot of things on hold on the personal front for the past years due to busyness at work. So I can now sit down and work through that list.

My kids are both concerned as well but they both agree that I should take a break.

Vyktore: Mommy, so now you are jobless?
Mommy: Yes
Vyktore: So what are you going to do?
Mommy: Hmm…good question. Actually I don’t have a plan now. I’m just going to sit back and relax. I can spend more time to cook for you.
Vyktore: Yay!!!
Mommy: Then I might sit around and play game whole day, cause I’ve not been able to do that for a long time.
Vyktore: *Strange look at me*…Can I join?
Mommy: No…you still have a job, go school LOL
Vyktore: Then what else Mommy? What are you going to do?
Mommy: Give you more worksheets to do at home hehe
Vyktore: *Shakes his head*
Faythe: Mommy, so you can send us to school everyday?
Mommy: Well not everyday, some days. Will take turn with helper.
Faythe: Then you won’t have money to buy things anymore.
Mommy: Yeah..but I’m not gonna be jobless forever. It’s just for a short period of time. I can go for school trips and no need to worry bout work anymore.
Faythe: Yay!!!

I look forward to spend more quality time with my family. Catch up with blog writing, creating beautiful photobooks, reviving my rusty photography skills and sit back and smell the air.
