Life Lately and why did I stop learning


I’m feeling very anxious right now

I fear that one day, someone really close to me will get severely infected and I wouldn’t be able to do anything because I don’t have enough strings to pull to save a life. Cos that’s what it comes down to right? Every hospital is full and you don’t stand a chance if you’re not well connected. You need connections to get a hospital bed. Connections to loan money for treatments. Connections to charter you to the nearest hospital. Life is especially unfair in this godawful corrupted motherland. God help us. 

On another note, I just checked out a Kindle

I’ve been contemplating on getting a Kindle for a long time but I was worried it’ll be put to waste. I remember getting an ipad mini because I wanted to draw more and read more, but it’s been a year and I’m not proud of my progress.

Speaking of progress (here’s a small one)

I’m back on Skillshare and is slowly learning my way through Procreate. The class I joined is: How to paint food in Japanese watercolor style and create digital sticker pack in Procreate. The original project was to create watercolor style sticker packs, but I did another to show what’s in my bag. I really like how it turned out! It’s both exhausting and rewarding. I learned a lot!

If you’re interested in joining, you can sign up using my link to get free Skillshare Premium trial. And if you happen to like the premium classes you can join for as low as ₱1,190/year. Yup, that’s the annual fee I got for signing up using the mobile app. It’s usually $99/year or almost ₱5k which is too hefty for me so I was surprised there exists a lower rate!

Anyway, if you don’t wanna spend money there are still tons of free classes you can join at Skillshare, in fact the class I shared above is a free one! 🙂

Work-wise I still feel the same…

You know, stuck. I always feel stuck. Like I’m only good enough for this company and not anywhere else. I’m kinda plagued by the lack of options I have should I decide to leave. What am I gonna do? Everything is outdated in my armory. From web development, software QA, performance testing, and UiPath development… I’m a restaurant with quite a menu but no specialty. If only I could focus on just one thing and be incredibly good at it. Hay. When did I stop learning. Why.

The good news (aside from God’s saving grace) is…

I’m still young and capable, in other words I have time and energy. It’s bad enough that we’re stuck in just one place (our home). Fortunately the home is a great place to start. Lol I just felt encouraged with my own post haha.

Hope you’re all feeling well and healthy.
Trust God. Keep moving.
