I think everybody knows by now that I have quit my stable pay job and now working as a freelancer. It's not as easy as it seems. This is not like Carrie Bradshaw writing a column in The New York Star while hitting the A-list parties in Manolo Blahnik strappy sandals! Okay maybe some part of it is quite similar (writing, parties, my painful pointy toe boots) but this is definitely much harder than that. There are times when I feel like I'm being pulled in 30 different directions every single day.
I began to appreciate nine-to-five regular jobs where you might have to stay back sometimes but no one will bother you with phone calls and emails at night and during the weekends. With events and parties that I sometimes have to RSVP simply because it is a "friend of a friend thing" and constant reminders from like five different people about my deadlines, I get really exhausted and I honestly believe that I haven't really worked this hard my whole life.
But it's a choice. I choose my choice... so here I am. Not to say that I am stuck with it but I seriously have to make it work. I'm still adjusting to this whole idea of working from home (and sometimes Starbucks at Sungei Wang as it is less crowded there), managing my time, sticking to my deadlines and dressing up in 15 minutes because I'm always running late for events and parties. Discipline is crucial and I realized that there are just so may rules I have to set for myself. I'm not very much of an "in control person" as my life has always been a huge giant mess. I guess it's time for a change. You know what people say about change. It's always good for you.
I'm in the final year of my twenties. That's just how old I am. I remember starting this blog way back then when I was just 26 with very regular updates even though there wasn't much to write about back then. Now that I have this life, the life that I 'kinda' always wanted for myself, I just can't find the time to share it with all of you here. Yeah, all of you 14 followers of Fash-un-able. Ha-ha!
Well I guess that's just the way the cookie crumbles. Things can only get worse before they get better. I want to update this blog more regularly but it's been like a promise that I can't seem to keep. So I won't promise anything but I assure you that something huge is coming this way. It is still in a very early stage of progress but it is definitely something. I will let you know. Soon I hope. In the meantime, follow me on Instagram where the updates are more regular and the photos are more current. @hannef83. See you there!
