It is an endless grind to achieve a goal. It can be tiring, tedious, repetitive… However, it is what it is.
Accept that to reach a goal, we’d have to work to get there.
Lately, I have been feeling burnt out.
I am feeling the inevitability of the grind without the end goal in sight. I am not feeling that I am advancing, rather, I feel that I am falling even farther from my goal, and that is what is making me feel burnt out.
I want to take a break, but I can’t. I have to keep going. I have to keep fighting.
Fight, and you live. Give up, and you die.
Fight on, and keep on moving forward.
It may take a lot of time. It may seem that there is no progress. It may seem that we may be in an endless cycle that is going nowhere… But if we are taking small steps, even if it is by a few centimeters… what matters is that we are somehow closer to the goal.
Life is a grind. Embrace it.
In other news, I applied to work for a side gig as a graphic artist, and web designer. I hurriedly submitted my portfolio to the company, and I somehow made the initial cut. There was supposed to be a meeting or something for last week, but when I got no messages, I e-mailed the owner/company following up on my status.
I initially thought that it was a “don’t call us, we’ll call you” situation… And I would rather not wait around not knowing what the situation is. If I did not make it, I would rather know now so I can move forward.
I received an e-mail today – I somehow made the first cut, and got selected from among 300 applicants. I do say that is somewhat a big boost to my self-esteem. However, I am still wondering if I will be able to make the final cut.
The interview and tests will be done sometime in September… Tests? Oh boy… I’m feeling nervous now.
My graphics skills, and web designing skills are very, very rusty. Fortunately, it is like riding a bike – once you know it, you don’t really forget it.
I hope I get this side gig. I could really use it to augment my financial situation.
