:-(

It's final. I am out of work.

Gosh, it took me around 20 whole minutes staring at those first two sentences before I could continue. My mind's not working. I feel all beat up. The company decided to close apparently because of miscommunication between the company's owners and their Canadian partners. No there wasn't any bad blood between the two. It's just business.

What do I do now? Maybe I should pursue a full-time 'career' with my cafepress store and do something about that average 2 sales/month, or finally get the my online stores the attention they deserve. Heck yes...but, no. With two growing kids and no savings whatsoever... how can I? It was my choice in the first place-- leaving a good job at a big call center because of better pay. And now that choice only lasted 9 months. (sigh) Wrong move Reia... how can a start-up company be any better with a globally known call center?

Now I feel stress creeping up behind me again. Headaches to the max. It's like my head's going to burst any minute now... and tear ducts are waiting for any opportune moment to unload...

I'm really sorry to hear about what happened. I guess, I'm partly to be blamed. I just wanted to help you out when you were looking for a better job and I thought I offered a good alternative. Anyway, I wish you all the best. Hope you find a better job. Keep in touch, though. Good Luck!!!!

Hi there, Yang!

Finally, got through the blog and sorry to hear about that. Anyway, each of us has their own depressing state. I should know as I've been through that and still working out my totally different life here. Whew! Time flies fast and I'm like almost 6 months here already in Canada.... still missing home, missing the familiar and the comfortable things I grew up with... friends, family, places and food..... but then, life goes on especially for the kids... I know how it feels and I know you'll get by it. A winner is recognized not when he's up but when he's down and how he struggles to rise up. I believe and trust in your capacities so much and I am optimistic God has something wonderful in store for you. Hang on friend! You're so much loved and blessed!!!! Miss you!!!!
