There are days when I feel like screaming my lungs out at the world. Life is so unfair! You see so many undeserving people wallowing in their endless supply of cash while you work harder and harder each day to a little income. I just feel like we little people work ourselves to the bones while those who are getting rich are those who lift their fingers just to push a button to call someone else to do the hard work for them

Ugh!

Anyway, I am just grateful that there’s music to calm down my nerves all the time. Whenever I feel like I am getting angry at the world again, I turn on the music, listen to a couple of mellow songs, and my blood pressure returns to normal. Boss pedal will be a gift I will get my next-door neighbor because he’s also a source of mellow music for me.

A couple of years ago, I was neck-deep in debts. I didn’t know how I could get saved from drowning. There was no clear sign of how I could pay for the loans I incurred over the years.

And then I quit working for a corporation. It seemed that instead of the fear I usually feel when I was in between jobs, there was relief instead. I was relieved that I would no longer be enslaved by something I was no longer happy doing. I could go on and be my own boss!

It was the lifeline that I was waiting for! I was able to earn more and use my earnings to pay off one debt after another. I was so happy that finally, I was no longer neck-deep in debt troubles. I was finally rising above the sea of debts with a clear view of the horizon.

I am praying, always praying, that it won’t happen to me again. I don’t want to find myself in the same situation as before. I am praying hard that this is the road to financial freedom, the same road we are all traversing right now.

Lately, my left eye is slowing me down. I think it’s time for another eye check up. But I want to have it done by next month. This month I am saving up for my brother’s final tuition fee installment. I should have had lasik surgery when I had the money two years ago. I was just scared to undergo a procedure like that. Too bad. I should have went ahead with it.

Oh well, there really are more and more reasons why I haven’t been reading lately. Bad eye. Too many pending things to do. And just a tad too lazy to do some reading…

piano

When I was around 6 or 7, my mom had me attend piano lessons at my cousins’ house. We had this really strict teacher who would bring with her a wood ruler to tap our hands with should we commit mistakes. The taps brought with it hurt and shame. Instead of making me want to learn more, it brought tears to my eyes and made me want to quit.

I remember one day, I had one too many taps on my hands. The red welts on my hands were more than enough for me to quit. And I did. I went home crying. I told my mom that I didn’t want to go back anymore. I knew she was disappointed.

Looking back, I realized that I would have went back should my mom insisted on it. But since she didn’t, there was no reason for me to go back anymore. My mom’s my inspiration. It would have been great had I learned to play the piano. I took me a year, I think, before I quit. When I look back in my life, I realize that it was the start of the many instances that I have quit because of the fear of committing more mistakes. But what if had I not quit the piano lessons I would have succeeded and become a great pianist? I would never know now. Much the same that I would never know what might have happened to me had I not quit one time too many…

road-trip

I want to go on a road trip but I can’t do it right now. I am saving up to buy two new laptops. I am also depositing money for my grandma’s expenses. I don’t know where to get funds should there be an emergency regarding my grandma and I want to be prepared for it. She is already bedridden and has diabetes. I don’t know when I might need the funds. It is better to be prepared than to find myself worrying so much about it.

I want to do so many things this summer but there are just too many things to prioritize. This is the life of a breadwinner, ladies and gentlemen.
