Life as a Web Designer/Developer

This morning when i woke up, as usual i went for a wash up. I grabbed the facial tube, open up the lid and took my toothbrush and intended to press the facial content onto my toothbrush. Hua! luckily i realised it before i really press it out! Seriously going into a super duper blur state these few days. Workloads are getting more and more and brain liquid was being squeeshed out like there's no tomorrow. My colleague will not be here anymore as she had resigned, past Tuesday was her last day. Now i am on my own, handling not only the web field but also the hardcopy output plus the affiliates' banners in the future. Yesterday I'd already came to a point where i couldn't remember what day it was, it has really been a while since the last time i had this feeling. Let me see....yup, it was during my university days where me and my groupmates had to rush like daytona for our projects, couldn't even differentiate whether is day or night.lolz.

Life as a web designer or web developer can be very easy and can be very hard depend on your will and passion. You can either choose to:

  1. work in office, back home and relax by playing your pc games or going out to have fun to balance up your life.
  2. work as a full time freelancer
  3. work in office, back home and continue work with your freelance project or doin your own side career thing
As for me i am going on the 3rd option. My personality is i cant afford to work merely just a web designer and only earn what i worked for in office, then having fun outside spending more money and getting myself in a bad situation at the final week of the month. Also i cant be a full time freelancer and the income won't be as stable as it can be. So i have to work, do freelance project, as well as having to do some side career thing.

There were times where i almost gave up and just go for option 1 because of stress and lack of support, but luckily i still have the support of my girlfriend and giving me endless of encouragement which drove me until today without really giving up. Sincerely i thank her very much here!

Now again i am at a very tight and tension situation where i have loads of things to be done within these few weeks, that's of course including my normal office work, and resulting why i did not update my blog frequently, hehe. Anyway, this really will be the time to test myself on how far can i go and how capable am i to handle things. Here i will tell myself that i will give my very best into everything and i will give full responsibility on each and every task which was given to me! i do believe i can handle it! No "QUIT" in my dictionary!

After today, I’ll be leaving the company you and I once worked in and start my new journey, first as problogger. what’s better than waking up and sleeping as you like, no schedule, make money triple as much out of blogging and doing design. I love my life.

whoa Aeres, you serious about asking your gf your age? do you know your age right now yip?

boon said during June 15th, 2007 at 3:20 pm

@Aeres: well, keeping track of my age really isn’t a thing that i will normally do. Always ppl asked me what is my age i really have to count properly or just simply say any possible number coz i really don’t know. lolz. Or i will just tell them my year of birth that’s it 😛

@hongkiat: alright~ glad that u finally ended the torment there 😉 wish u all the best from now on pal! As for me i won’t just stay as a normal blogger, i am a type of person where i will do something that benefits other people as well as myself. Sounds very “lan yeng” like tat but it’s true anyway.

@Rabbit: hahaha! till that time get u a carrot farm also no prob lah 😛

@Seraph: i really dunno. hahhaha! just remember my year of birth tat’s all
