I've been started working when I was at the age of 13.
I earn my own pocket money.(extra allowance for myself)
From retail assistance to pet groomer to receptionist to events job to beauty consultant etc..
In fact, the number of jobs I've tried are really countless.
Life was rather hard for me since I was at younger age where most of my friends are getting allowance from their parents.
To be honest, I wasn't happy. Everyone was having fun during their holidays, going on vocation with their family.
What was I doing then? Working, earning extra bucks for personal expenses.
I wouldn't say that my family financial were unstable. It's more like, its average.
And my Mum always tell me that they doesn't have "extra money" for me to spend.
Rather standard - $20bucks on every Friday to last me the entire weekend.
Of course, a big Thank you to my Sis who has been paying for everything whenever she brought me out.
When I was at the age of 13, my daily sch allowance was only $3/$.350.(extra 50cent if I'm gonna stay back in sch)
I find it humiliating when friends started the topic of the amount of allowance they are bringing to sch.
I would always avoid to ans it. I mean. $3 is fine for me.
But I tend to compare with others' families :(
(Oh! There's no special reason for this pic. I'm just afraid you'll get bored of my long wordy post.
So I decided to post picture in between to entertain you guys :x)
Since then, I know the importance of money.
I start "working" some of the temp job and spend my own "salary" instead of stretching out my hand and get it from my Mum.
I started paying my own hp bills, giving my Mum household money(app.$400 per month) and all my expenses when I was at the age of 17.
I've not mention anything abt my Dad?
Yeah. He left us, our family when I was at the age of 9.
He did came back every once in a while like once or twice a week.
No, my parents did not file for any divorce. He left because of his work.
He's working in Sg of course. But he claim that his work place is too "far" from our house.
And it's rather inconvenient for him to travel everyday. Fyi, his work place located at somewhere near to Eunos.
We're staying in Tampines.
(Yup, that's another one with no reason.)
Now. I'm 19. My Sis is 22. My Bro is 27.
He is returning to this family. After 10 freaking yrs.
That is what he said -
"I'm coming back to look after my children."
"I'm going to retire."
Frankly speaking, I don't feel anything abt him.
I couldn't even recall a single childhood moment with him.
I.. have nothing to say abt him.
Lately, he has been coming back and stay over pretty frequently.
Drama(s) has been going on and on and on.
Like. The bad kind of drama.
He LOVE making a big fuss over the ppl we're hanging out with and the time we're reaching home.
Let me just use a few words to describe my Dad.
Unreasonable, arrogant, hack, mean...
Only my double S and my beloved A will understand how I really feel.
Because they seen his drama(s) in rl.
Been rather down lately as I decided to continue to pursue my studies and a new job.
Drama king returning.
Mum been kinda stress over it too. (no one feels good with his presence)
Okay seriously, I don't wanna talk abt him anymore.
I just wanna rant.
Simply life sucks.
Don't ever look at me with that sympathy look.
I don't need that.
I will be strong. I will go through all these shit.
