When I am pissed off, there's no pacifying me! That's for sure and that's exactly what happened today! :(
I woke up rather late as usual, after one whole night of burning the midnight oil and a futile attempt at dropping EC, which already put me in a foul mood right before I dozed off. So this afternoon, I decided not to go online, but concentrate on a new assignment for a client instead. I already had all the information I needed on casino tax refunds and casino tax rebate so I did not have to go online for research purposes.
Speaking of casinos, a friend of mine who recently vacationed in Melbourne, called me up yesterday to gloat about her casino winnings while she was there! How I wish her luck would rub off on me, especially now that the economy is so sluggish and work-wise, it has affected the number of jobs I receive from my regular clients too. Her winning tale was so enticing that the dreamer in me actually stopped for a moment to happily imagine all the wonderful things I'd love to purchase if I ever win anything big that is LOL!
Back to my story, I finally got the job done and got online to email the copy to my client, who's usually quite speedy in reverting back with any changes. While waiting for my client to get back to me, I checked my email and read all the comments I received on my last angry post. Imagine my shock and anger when I received a comment from one of my blog buddies informing me that this slow connection plaguing many of us right now, will persist till next month, 5th of March to be exact!
I got so angry when I found out about this, because putting aside EC dropping, slow connection is not good for me and my work. As a freelance copywriter working from home, I need speedy connection 24/7. I do a lot of online research, I use a lot of online programs and I communicate with my clients via email or other online communication means. I was fuming mad when I got to know this but lucky for me I have two very cool and understanding buddies, who also work from home and completely understand what I am going through. They immediately came to my comfort, and joined me in venting my anger at what's going on, via emails and their comments at my blog here.
It feels good to be able to vent, but it feels better when you do it with friends who actually comprehend your predicament. So today, I wanna say thanks to LJ, Debbie and Jean (who joined in the venting session later) for understanding my anger and frustration! You ladies are the best and it does feel good to have confidantes to share your frustration with, when need be! If I had to keep my anger all bottled up inside, god knows just how much more angry I'd be today!
And to the rest of my readers here, thanks so much for reading yet another angry post from me! I wonder if you too have friends that you can totally trust and complain to about anything in the world should you feel angry like the way I am feeling right now. If you don't, you're missing out on something great! Having good friends who listen to you moan and groan about whatever it is that's bugging you, sure does wonders for my stress level. I am feeling much better now after my venting session with my ladies and am ready to face my day, with or without a strong connection! Thanks again ladies for always being there for me, you guys are the best and Mariuca loves ya! :)
