1. The Peanut-Circle:

Beginning/ end: I used to work for peanuts a long time back while babysitting my cousin. After school, I worked in a preschool for little more than peanuts.  You should have seen me then, swelling with pride. Then came the full-time corporate job after uni —> Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 high-paying, boring, monotonous desk-top white-collar job. I realised too soon I wasn’t enjoying the job apart from the salary. I quit. Went back to college to study. Dropped out of college after a year, traveled a bit and NOW back to working for peanuts. Beginning??? End???

2. My way or Highway

So I think sometimes it’s important to just sit back and stop whatever it is that you’re doing ~ take time off for no reason and travel all alone.  Go out there “On the Road” and “Into the Wild”. See different things or see things differently. Don’t get back until you’re ready. Don’t get back until you’ve figured out what is it that you’re “ready” for. This may be a time to collect your thoughts or the time to clear your head of all the “junk” thoughts.


Being single = the privilege to start what I can/may never finish OR call it quits before I even start.

Being single = the downside of having no one to pin it on when things go wrong (as they always will)

3. The Peanut-butter Theory


And at the end of the day if everything else fails and all life has to offer is peanut, churn it into peanut butter [yummmm] and enjoy your peanut-butter sandwich. Lame as it may sound, I speak from experience and I love peanut butter. I can have them straight from the bottle.

Maybe some day it’ll all make sense [to me, at least]

    ’tis far far better to be your version of happy than corporate society’s version. (I’ve worked at the same job since high school, thanks. I’m no “professional”.) Besides, doesn’t the bumpy, unexplored road lead to better stories than the well-paved and “standard” route?

      agreed. agreed. I’m trying to travel the road not taken here 😉
      Thanks for stopping by!

    You know, I’ve been thinking of quitting my job and going back to school lately. I just need to start something new.. Change things up a bit. I just bought a ring that says “Don’t Panic” (from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and I wear it every day. It surprisingly keeps me calm during those really bad days at work.

      I was beginning to miss you “here”. You’ve been an inspiration…. I’ll try finding something like your ring 😉

    But you are HAPPY! (And do you churn your own peanut butter? I am curious!)

        Oops! I meant to say make. I recalled a curly gizmo you can use to churn up the PB… 🙂
