An [Un]pleasant Surprise

I know that this week has just barely started, yet I can say that it has not been treating my nicely. Right at this moment, I am feeling so frustrated and depressed. I guess it's all the small little things piling up and it's now that it has taken its toll on me.

One of the reasons I get all stressed out is the fact that I am just a mother of one, yet it's as if I take care of 3 little kids. I am the eldest in the family, and two of my brothers still depend on me when at home. I do the house chores aside from taking care of my BabyLove and working. So, yes, my whole day is loaded. Can you imagine how frustrating that is? But, I always push my frustrations aside and think positive of it. Besides, I'm the eldest and the only girl, so who else would do the chores, right?

Another reason why everything seems to have been crashing down on me is the fact that I just lost one of my jobs today. For those who don't know it, I work online through oDesk. I currently have two, one is my main job and another part-time, both for the same employer. My employer just got home from their vacation, and I get a message from them that they have to let me go from one of my jobs due to certain reasons. I still get to keep the part-time job though. He's a really good employer and there is nothing bad I could say about him.

Although he did mention he'd hire me again once there is an opportunity, I still can't help feel down and depressed. I was caught off-guard. Mainly because my salary now is just 1/4 of what I used to earn. So, imagine how hard that is. And, right now, I still haven't got over the situation.

Nevertheless, I am trying to keep my hopes up. I'm sure something is bound to be a better replacement for what I have lost. I am already applying once again for another job, and hopefully I get accepted to at least one of them.

I also am looking for something to cheer me up. I guess eating a bar of chocolate or making my favorite ice-cold drink would get me out of this sadness. Any suggestions?

Well, 'til my next post then. Thanks for reading through my rant. I do appreciate you taking the time to do so. :)

Cheers!>
