I work from home.

[tweetmeme source=”litekimchi”]

I’ve always dreamed of working in a corner office with a great view. While I never thought that that corner office was going to be my room in the house, there’s not much to complain about.

It is, after all, a corner room with a great view of the outdoors. There’s a cute yellow house right in front of my room. Lush greens shade me from the afternoon sun. Of course, there’s the occasional crowing of the rooster from next door that my clients from the US and Australia find very amusing.

Yes, did I mention that I work from home as a freelance writer-slash-virtual assistant? After slaving away in the corporate world, I found myself jobless one day. A friend introduced me to an online job market, and it’s been a dream since. It’s not always perfect, but I find working for myself is a whole lot more fulfilling than anything else that I’ve ever done.

I’m primarily a writer. I do mostly web content. But lately, I’ve been tasked to do more. My interests have now shifted from economics, which is my major, to social media, internet marketing and education technology. It has its ups and downs, but somehow, I don’t see myself doing anything else.

… well, except selling turon (banana rolls) and lugaw (rice porridge) in a tiny little shop someday. More on that later.

Perhaps, like my client, I’ll write a book about my experiences one day. But for now, I’ll blog about it and hope that I get to share bits of wisdom every now and then. And maybe you’ll get to teach me, too.

    I agree and resonate with you completely. Sometimes “finding yourself jobless” turns out to be the very best thing which happens to you, because now you have no choice but to go after passions.
