Here Comes April

It has been a month since I've left the family business. March was entirely spent on learning screen printing and maintaining this blog.

No source of income yet, so I've been trying to be frugal with my savings as much as I can. I'm glad my mom gives me some money for phone and internet load, and for some little stuff for my screen printing project. Being 36 years old and still receiving allowance form your parents sounds uncool. Others may think that I'm lucky. Nonetheless I'm thankful.

I've also been trying to be optimistic while taking this new path towards self-employment. The uncertainty that lies ahead worries me a bit. But I believe that opportunities are heading my way. Opportunities in fact are here now. They are everywhere and I just have to grab one or two, try them out and see if it works for me.

It's kinda nakakapanibago or should I say disorienting, this new routine. No more waking up early to go to work, I wake up between 10 to 11 AM almost every day because I have been sleeping late, like 2 AM when I get carried away by a creative task. I am left all alone here at home during the daytime except Sundays. When you stay at home most days of the week you really tend to spend less (on fare or gas and food). Even you're laundry load is lessened.

But of course I hope this will change in the coming months. I'd like to go out more and do legwork. Like meeting clients, sourcing and purchasing materials, collecting payments. ^_^
