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.

    I can imagine how u feel…we all feel like dat at some point in our lives and the best we can do is pray to God to show us directs on wat he has called us to do. Our lives are meant to be purpose driven. It is all about him and not us.

    I pray God directs u as u take the next step in ur life.

    N.B- lemme go and read your other posts- i see u maximised the break 🙂

  2. I know the feeling girl. I was sooo unfulfilled in my job before. Everyone thought they knew what was best for me and that was staying in Accounting because it is seen as a “good” job with good career prospects. I could see that I was not happy, I was terribly bored and I was losing my mind with the monotony of the job. So I quit! I’m now doing something I really enjoy. I think you should do the same, follow your passions and live a happy and fulfilled life, instead of working to enrich somebody who pays you peanuts.
