So many bad things happened to my family back home this year. My Mom's house got destroyed by a typhoon, one of my sisters was diagnosed with Myoma (tumor), and many other things that left me so stressed out for the past months. That's one advantage of being away from your family. It is also hard because I don't have a permanent job here so financial support has been so hard for us. Although we really tried our best to help out, it still ain't enough. My sister has also been feeling so low lately because she didn't pass the teachers board but I told her to try again next year.
She has been sending out applications and resume but since job opportunities in the Philippines is so scarce, she find it hard to land a job. Through the help of a good friend, she had the opportunity to work as a substitute for just two weeks, which is really god. I told her that it's good to have it at this time of the year so she'll have something to spend for the holidays. I hope and wish that she can find a job after this one.
