Return To Work Order

See, I haven't been going to work since last week. Been absent for 9 consecutive days now and still planning on not returning. I am still torn between whether or not to continue working in the company I am currently in, considering some circumstances. Thoughts of maybe looking for another place and nature of business to work in are coming in. 

Chances are:
  • I may find another job and have a normal schedule with days off on the weekends, but end up being paid so little. (I work in a call center environment, so the perks are frickishly awesome!)
  • I can bear being paid less than what I get now if I find a job nearby home, save on travel time and expenses, but also make a cut on the lifestyle I've already been used to.
  • Continue working in the current company I am with, but dread every damn day of dragging myself to going to that place - travel time, by the way, is 2 and 1/2 hours going to, and another 2 and 1/2 hours back. Or,
  • I can just accept and adjust to the fact that things change, things happen, and not everything and everyone would be to my favor. 
Is it what you call 'laziness'? Or have I just had enough?

I've been thru that stage bro and I know exactly how it is. It's gonna eat you alive. Call center is not the best place to be when you're the type of person who thinks there's got to be something else you can do aside from taking calls.

I must admit, the pay is awesome, one of the reasons why I stayed, but then again, the schedule will kill you, eventually.

And to keep my story short, I resigned. Luckily, I found a new job for me, which I consider a blessing. Blessing. So I suggest in the meantime, before you leave, make sure you got somewhere to go to, otherwise, it's not worth it. Pera pa rin yan. haha
