Another Cross Road

The end of NS is the beginning of another journey for me. Away from the sheltered bunkers of the army into the concrete jungle combined with harsh steel and sharp glass. Reality bites harder in real society.

I have begun part-time studies in Biotechnology. As a income source I have also done some locum work as a freelance phlebotomist. Unfortunately since my last assignment ended three weeks ago, I have no more work. It is time to find a new job.

I’m not getting a new job yet as I have not fully adjusted to student life. While I realize how important this venture is, I’m not fully immersed in the study mood. I should be making use of all the given time to study.

The biggest side effect is that I have no income. Not having any income is a painful thought. It pains me to see my bank account balance decreasing daily. Money, money, can be used for so many things.

My resolution is to find a job after this Legion camp in November. This camp is causing me endless headaches. There are also other issues to settle. Goodness, I’m not a full time church worker.

I must learn to manage my time better and stop this fear of not being able to cope overtake me. O Lord, make haste to help me!
