Work-Shmurk

Like any other Homo sapien roaming our money-driven earth (with the exception of lucky, rich bastards who are drunk on wine, clothed in silk, and luxuriating in family wealth), I have finally reached the dreadful realization that it’s high time I quit surfing Facebook, tweeting and watching YouTube, get my lazy ass off the couch and find myself a job. Oh yes, it spells J.O.B. It would’ve been a tad bit more helpful if that someone coined a fancier name for this terrorizing corporate slavery – one that takes a bulky 50 percent of our lives and turns it into a living nightmare. Isn’t the word ‘job’ just plain boring? C’mon, it’s about marketing. If they market it with a little more excitement, surely it’ll be perceived likewise. Haha. Okay, I’m ranting ‘cos my brain is fried from the frustration of searching, applying, not getting a response from most of them, applying for more, going down for interviews, finding jobs inappropriate for me, etc. It’s demoralising too.

My boyfriend owns his own web design agency (Fixx) and he recently posted a job ad online. He revealed to me that around 95% of the applicants were foreigners. But wait, it gets even better. Among these foreigners, there were some who aren’t even residing in Singapore, claiming they’ll travel to Singapore only if they get the job. So, we’re not only competing with foreigners in Singapore, but those overseas as well?

Save me!

Anyway, apart from the job hunting, I’ve been quite keen on starting my own online store. I know I’m 2 years late in the game, but it’s now or never. Should I? This is tricky.

Before I go, here’s a couple of vids I’d like to share :D

Love Yourself, Love Others.
