GT: POOR ME!

Oh, how can this topic be like I’m on Dr. Phil’s show.

Dr. Phil: So, do you love yourself financially?
Vernz: No.

Dr. Phil: What made you say that?
Vernz: Because I can only run around my needs and not much of what I want?

Dr. Phil: How did you arrive at this situation?
Vernz: I used to do fulltime productive work, I used to spoil myself with lots of things this world can offer, but when I get married and bore a child, I made the most difficult decision ever in my life, with heavy heart I left my managerial job in exchange for a full-time reproductive job.

I received weekly allowance, let’s just call it that, this sounds less political than support from my husband, eventually I got bored and said I have to look for some ways to rust-guard my brain, although my husband has more than enough for my family’s needs and wants … not mine, LOL! So I accepted an offer to teach college, part-time, Waaaaah, I realized now bloggers are better off than teachers … don’t ever ask how much a teacher is receiving that’s an open secret. It made me buy a pizza on weekends though, and read some sweet words from my student’s evaluation sheets, so I’m comfortable with that.

But honestly, on a personal level who wouldn’t ask for more, yeah, blogging made me like an old dog learning new tricks and hope to make extras here, and I thank you all for supporting this blog in effect I might make some $.

But at the end of the day, I always assure myself, I’m still blessed than those I see everyday on streets begging and knocking my car window for food carrying along with them their children. Awwww, I’m teary-eyed… Dang! That’s enough!

Thanks Ladies, see you again next week at K’s Beauty Queen Gene for another round of Girls Talk.

So funny how you started with the Dr. Phil bit :D It's always nice to have extra for our wants and wishlists, but you're right, we're still blessed if we have a home and can afford to eat (and afford to have an internet connection, haha).
