Shame on me…

For not posting for almost a week!

I’ve been extremely busy. Extremely. And I’ve been busy with other things.

Anyway…

How are you, friends? I hope everybody’s doing great right now. My boss took a vacation leave for a week. She took advantage of the 2 consecutive long weekends and left a lot of tasks for me to do. It was all cool, though. Not complaining. For the first time I felt I am working once again hehehe…

Been whining about my job for some time now. I know you probably think that I should get a move on and do something about my situation than whine, right? But when you are in a position that a lot of people depends on you, you tend to push aside your personal happiness and think of others instead. And it sucks, believe me. There are days when I keep thinking I should have been a bit more selfish but then again you will realize that their happiness is your happiness as well. And then I’d feel ashamed for even thinking about being selfish and all.

So I am still here taking on a job I have grown to love and hate. But don’t get me wrong, hey. I am thankful I became what I am. Being a CPA brought so much joy to my parents, my grandparents and my relatives have been boasting that I am the first one in the family and would love to see cousins follow in my footsteps. You should have seen the joy in my parents’ eyes when they saw my name on the newspaper. That was and still is the happiest day of my life. My dad immediately told neighbors that I passed the board exams. He called up all our relatives hahaha… And my mom was crying all morning. It was her dream, you see. She just got pregnant with me and shifted to another course instead to make her schedule easier. I remember her telling me that I must study at UST and no other university and that I must take up Commerce (Accountancy now) and no other course. I remembered that we were having lunch that day, when my dad told me that I should take up Law to become a CPA-Lawyer. For a time, I contemplated taking up Law. But my mom was adamant that I not become a lawyer lest I go to hell and all hahaha… and I am too lazy I don’t know if I still have it in me to study that hard again. Plus, do I really want to make my life more complicated than it is? I don’t think so. Then again my dad is always dropping hints when he sees a lawyer on tv. Hahaha

Oh well, I think being a CPA is enough already. Besides, I am giving myself one more year as an employee and will be embarking on another adventure once things get settled.

Hay… I was just planning to update you on what’s happening to me right now this post became a longish post na. Should make up for the week I hadn’t posted an update.

Happy weekend everyone! Once again, enjoy the long weekend :)

  • Hi Sasha. Sounds like you had a busy and tiring week. Hope you can take advantage of the long weekend to relax and unwind.

    Back in college, I wasn’t fond of accounting subjects. It was a tough subject and I admire people who are good in it. CPA is certainly a very impressive achievement.

    Take care!
