What’s up, dudes! How're your Holidays so far? I hope you’re having a great time and prepare for the Xmas day!
Yesterday, in the company, we make a toast to celebrate our Christmas and New Year’s Party before we go on our Christmas vacations and be back to work on January 3rd next year. However, yesterday was my last day of work in my company. I sent my resignation letter a few days ago, so no more being an employee.
In other words, I’m back to freelancing!
Now, don’t think that the company was a really bad place to work with. In fact, it is a really good place to work with. The workmates were nice. The place where the company is is really awesome, too (I mean, we’re talking about Las Mercedes, the coolest place in Caracas). And the boss is a great person. But, over time, I felt like I reached a point where I can’t do this anymore. Like, I have nothing else to offer for the company. I think that was the call that I have to leave. So, I quit.
And, even though that my boss and my workmates were sad about my decision, they accepted it. I told them that I have projects and other great works abroad, and I can’t work my 100% on these projects because of my full-time job. However, in my resignation letter, I wrote that, if the time comes, I will gladly work with them again (unless I find something better than that company, who knows).
In one part, I’m excited because now I have more time to work with the other projects that I have pending to do, like comics, illustrations, drawings, Patreon, you know, the usual; but, in the other part, I’m so scared. Now that I’m unemployed again (for the fifth time), I will not have the benefits that an employee has: like healthcare, social security, food tickets, or even a paycheck every 15th and end of the month. From now on, I will be on my own. And with this crisis that my Venezuela is living right now, the future is uncertain. So I don’t know.
But, I have to keep positive. I have to remember that I’ve been through this before, and I can do this. To have fun and focus on the work and not in the money (because in the end, money will come to you if you don’t think of it). I just hope that I didn’t make a bad decision, and I hope that you guys will help me to support myself and my family financially.
I’ll see how things go in the next 6 months next year. So wish me luck!
