When The Going Get Tough...

Lately I am a bit lost on what to say. Had wanted to talk about myself and my life, but it seems that I had become more and more private nowadays. Other stuffs does not really interest me anymore.

There are more things in my life that found a definite answers now. Ironically, there are lots of thing I need to do, but couldn't because of one major uncertainty. Timing and planning is quite crucial now. I wish that I can just fast forward the time and get things done with so I can continue with the rest of my life.

One of my major concern now is the economic situation. I believe I have start to feel the pinch of the economic downturn since early last year, and now I start to get the uneasy feeling. Thank God I am still able to keep my job, at least for the whole duration of the year. But I could do with some extras in my pocket at the moment. Money felt a bit tight, savings seems to reach a stagnant level and budget always does not tally with the incurred expenses at the end of the month. Then again, who doesn't? Hehe.. Well, for the sake of complaining.

This year definitely gonna be a tough one, at least for us. Some people who owed us, start to make default in repayment by making 1001 excuses, and there are some who came to us for help just to make ends meet. All of these reminds me of The US Depression, and it worries me to bits. Whatever it is, I just hope that it would never ever be my turn to ask for help. I have gone through the 1998 recession weary but not defeated, and I know I will come out of this one stronger than ever. I'll keep my sanity and held my head up high, cos surely, the tough one'll get going!

Good luck to all of us!

The economy is hard. I already feel it.

Wish there is more we can do, but whatever we try... if people do not have the power to buy.. we can't sell/do anything much.

Sumuk said...

lvynana: that's the wrong assumption, tetttt!! satu lagi percubaan!

Cyril Dason: That's when creativity should kick in.
