On Work and Procrastination

The good thing about this kind of job I have is that I work for myself and I have all the time to do all the work and promotion of my products. It’s good because (1) I really don’t like being bossed around. (I think I am born to be the leader, not the follower. Heh, but I can follow, of course, if I want to and have to.) (2) I’m a total home buddy that I don’t like leaving the house that much. (3) I can’t leave my computer for some reasons. (4) I feel like working in an office, in whatever workplace, or even just as a home-based worker, is like being imprisoned or something.

With all these reasons, some of you may think that I don’t like pressure, responsibility, compromising etc. Well, that’s sort of true. For me, that’s so troublesome that I just want to leave things behind and just doodle on the fun things I do. Yeah, you can call me a quitter, coward and other names if you want. This is me and I know what I’m doing.

I didn’t finish my college because I don’t see myself having a job related to my course, BA Management and simply because I got careless, had so many absences, so many pending projects and I just can’t handle the pressure of thesis. (Yes, Thesis!) I told you, it was so troublesome that I wanted to quit. (And I did. ) Oh well, I’ll stop talking about this since I have blogged about this before so I’m guessing that some may think that this post might lead to my boring past again.

What? My work? I’m selling wordpress themes in webmaster forums like Digital Point. For some, this seems to be impossible. I thought so too but when I visited those forums, I found out that it can be a good source of money. I got $300 last month in just selling a few themes. I withdrew $230 (which is 10,000 pesos) and the rest I spent on this blog (domain +hosting) .

Yes, I think this kind of work is much easier than that of a real job but it’s not that easy like you think it is especially when you’re against procrastination and laziness! This is the downside of my freelance job, I may have all the time and there’s no pressure but unlike in a real job in which you are oblige not to procrastinate and become lazy, I can be tempted not to do what I must really do. Right now, I am delayed and didn’t even try to sell for two weeks.

But I’m back on track again. As a matter of fact, In this week, I have sold one theme, five wordpress PSDs (uncoded), and there’s one still on sale. My plan now is to withdraw money bimonthly instead of monthly since it’s just too long.

Self Comment: I think doing this kind of freelance work is a big responsibility itself, not to anyone but to me.

Quotes and experience to share:

1. Quoted from an elementary classmate’s YM status

Mahirap labanan ang KATAMARAN. (It’s hard to fight laziness.)

Lalo na kung tinatamad kang labanan ito. (Especially when you’re too lazy to fight it.)

2. A talk with a college classmate last month in a mall.

Her: Uy, kamusta? san ka nagwowork ngayon? (Hey, How are you? Where are you working now?)
Me: Err.. freelance kase ngayon eh. (Err.. I’m a freelancer right now.)
Her: Ah. san yun? (Ah. Where is that? – she’s probably asking about the location or the company-)
Me: Ano kase. Nagbebeta ako ng web designs tapos binibenta ko sa internet. (Uhm actually I do web design then sell it online)
Her: Ahh…
Inner Me: What? You don’t know what freelance means? You must be an idiot!

Me and everyone around me.

I think, most of the people I know in real life, if not everyone, see me as the different, delicate person or the one that you can’t fool, kid or joke around. I think some people see me as a serious person. In fact, I think someone did commented that I’m way too serious. I don’t know but I’m not really like that. I’m actually loud, cheerful, and just err, loud. But I know one thing is for sure and the only reason that they think of me as such – I have put a barrier between me and other people or in other words, I separate myself to the rest of the world.

Yes, I think I’m anti-social and I’m really having problems with it. My boyfriend told me that I tend to separate myself because I’m the one who thinks that I’m different from others. Well, I think it’s kind of true. I think I’m afraid of being rejected and being made fun of. Because of this, I’m always alone.

I really want to change! I want to belong to a group of friends. I want to talk to people, laugh and share things with them! But I don’t know what to do and how to start.

Goodbye Dial-Up!

I’ve been on dial-up for about more or less than two years. I’m not really that much of an internet geek so I’m a bit contented. Maybe because I feel that my ISP is faster than others (download rate I think is 4.75 kbps) though I can’t and I won’t recommend it because, generally, it sucks.

Those were the dial-up days.
Since we can’t afford to have a postpaid telephone line, we have no choice but to apply for a prepaid landline – before it was Telesulit but we were advised to convert to Telepwede which uses the so called PLDT “all around card” Pwede card. At first, it was convenient because we can load it for as low as 30 pesos and since it’s an all around PLDT card, it can also be use as PLDT Vibe card.

It was okay before but since I need to be online most of the time because of my freelance work and because Telepwede keeps on disconnecting every 30 minutes recently, I decided to apply for a postpaid internet connection.

Hello Broadband Internet!
My first choice was Globelines Internet because they have a promo of 1.5 mbps for 995 PHP/month but our house (location) is out of their coverage area. (We were just a few meters away from the boundary) T.T Second choice was PLDT DSL, but it’s a bit expensive so I landed applying for Smart Bro, which, I heard, is not a good choice.We applied for the Bilis Kabit promo so we can get a Smart Bro connection after 1-2 days but the installation guys arrived at our house after 3 days! Tsk. Tsk.

So far, I don’t have any complains with the connection. It’s just that since I got used to dial-up that now I don’t know what to do with unlimited internet. lol

I’m back with a new domain!

I’m back and I hope it’s for good. I know it has been like more or less two months since my last blog post. Whew! I really missed blogging! I feel like half-empty without it.

A lot of things had happened for the past two months. So many that I get dizzy everytime I try to remember. o_O I’ve been really busy with a lot of things, especially now that I’m trying my very best to maintain my source of income – that is, selling wordpress themes online. A lot of people might think that I have lower chances of earning money through selling web designs as a freelancer but actually if you know the right style and the right place or site to sell, you could actually earn lots of cash. I, myself earned $300 in just three weeks! I think I can even earn a lot more if I have pushed myself a little more.

What I have learned from this is that you should stick to what you have or what you know and make the best out of it. My friend told me that since I have this not-so-good physical condition and this limits me to do things that people can usually do, God has given me this talent (though I know that other people can also do this kind of thing, even better than me) and for that, I am really grateful to him.

I think I’ll end this now. I Hope to have new link exchanges and I love you all for keeping up with me.
