Okay… it’s me and my woes again. Have I told you guys about my job?
Well, I work for a government establishment. I am a lawyer but, of course, they decided to put me in the policy department. What do I do? Well not much. I have some busy days, but usually I spend my working hours blogging (Thank God for blogger!) or when I can, I shuttle between my office and my tailoring shop.
When I just started work, it was easy for me to be away from work and stay with my tailors, attending to clients. But after a while, leaving the office involved lying or getting into trouble with the boss. Luckily, the house I moved to last year has a bq so I moved my tailors there. It made it easier because I didn’t have to make an excuse to leave work, I could attend to my tailors/clients once I bring my kids home from school or when close from work.
So, what’s my problem? Well I still don’t have enough time for my shop so it’s at the mercy of my tailors. They had committed all sort of atrocities while they were in a rented shop, so of course when they moved to my bq their illegal runs were reduced. One of my tailors had been destroying people’s clothes so I had to sack him and manage with only one tailor. Now anyone in tailoring knows you can’t work with one tailor, so I have been searching for other tailors to employ. I just got two (who aren’t even that good) and are insisting I accommodate them because my house is far. It’s just so stressful running a business when you’re never around.
Today, my shop girl told me as I got home that my lone tailor had left the shop angrily around noon and that a friend of his had called in saying that my tailor wanted to leave. In other words I may have no tailors, meanwhile fabrics are piled up.
I want to just quit my job and focus on my designing and tailoring, because it gives me so much more fulfilment and flexibility. However, being a lawyer and all everyone in my family thinks I am crazy and that I should just keep my sewing as a hobby and focus on paid (peanuts) employment. Meanwhile, My job is so annoying; on a good day I write some dry memo or conduct some daft assessment.
Anyway, I will just quietly resign when I am tired; the job just annoys me to no end! 2plus2 I still want that internship oh! At least when I resign I will be able to do something meaningful in addition to nurturing my business. In fact, I am thinking of forgetting about the LLM I want to pursue and instead do some fashion courses.
I hope you all enjoy what you’re doing, because believe me this life is too short to be stuck doing something you hate. Have a blessed week.
