EF #18: It was so complicated…. for my pocket money.

I made this post related to the 18th Challenge of english friday which is about The Complicated Relationship.
For me, a complicated relationship is the root of any discomfort. It is a situation where I know there is something wrong’s going on, and I want to fix it. But in the other hand, it needs the second party’s role to make it better. So I’ll end up having no clue of which way to start.
In this condition, all I feel is like hanging on a thread. At most case, we would just blame the other party for the inconvenience.

My complicated relationship happened 2 or 3 years ago, and it was me and my college. At that time, there was a moratorium regulation for civil servant as Mr. President required it to be. It was a problem for me and other alumna of state colleges. We should have been declared as civil servant and placed in some instances by the time we had graduated. But it didn’t go that way. We were waiting for about 7 months in vain without any further notice.
It was of course a problem to my pocket money, too ๐Ÿ˜€
I was too shy to ask for it to my parents since I’ve been graduated, but I couldn’t make some money either. I was thinking of applying an internship at some public accountants in town or tax consultants, like some of my friends did, but I couldn’t assure the company how long I’d stay. Because in the other side, I didn’t want to disappoint them anyway.
So all I did was just staying at home, watching KDrama dan reality show. Sometimes I accompanied Mom here and there to the tax office, running errands, and so on. On the other occasions, I went with Dad to do his business which was a fun thing to do.

It was enjoyable, though. But at some point, too much of holidays could kill your brain and you’d feel bored you could die ๐Ÿ˜† I didn’t know about blogging at that time, so I just had fun in the other way around.
So yes, this was my complicated relationship with…. the regulation? or the state college? ๐Ÿ˜€
Well, I’m not sure, but I was so much hung up by the regulation back then.

So, have you been in a complicated relationship? ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I think I know which college it is. Is it the same college that made me in your state too for, let’s say, a full year, Mbak? :haha.
    But to be honest, I’m quite grateful that I have had a long time that year. My health was deteriorated so I need plenty, plenty of rest because of the typhoid fever and liver infection. Had I been placed in the office that time, I wouldn’t have known about what would happen :)).
