Life is Becoming Complicated

Today I realized that as we age our responsibilities grow bigger and life becomes complicated. Funny thing is it wasn't a divine enlightenment that taught me this. It hit me when I applied for an EON card. I was asked to submit an insurance number or a tax payment something. I was so shocked as I still don't have those things so I tried to reason out. But the lady in the bank told me that if I don't have a valid student ID I need to have those things already as a requirement from the "Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas". So I wasn't able to get my EON card for now. I'm so annoyed. How about you guys? Do you have some frustrations on growing up? I'd love to read about your experiences.

As soon as I graduated I had to find a job that would support me cause I would get anything from my parents. Not that they would not give my anything, but I couldn't ask for more thing as I already took a lot from them when I was at schools. I knew it even before I graduated. I worked part times to buy books at my last year in university. It's good to understand our responsibility. Many people just don't want to know of it...

Well I am grateful because I came to know of the responsibilities I need to do as a graduate. But I do wish I had lesser responsibilities specially those which requires falling in line at some office to process documents. But I guess I can't run away from it forever so I'm facing it.

Life does become harder when you get older, because you have to face the fact that you no longer have your parents to look after you no matter what you do. I found it hard when I moved out of my house to be able to afford everything that I needed for this very reason, so goodness knows what I am going to be like when I have children that I have to care for myself. But for now, I am happy living at home again because I couldn't afford my flat, so I just have to have fun while I can and think about all of the responsibility later, when I really have to.

Moving out of home is indeed hard. I have tried it when I had my board review. I lived in an apartment for two months. Although my parents still sends me allowance and all I still find it very hard to budget. My allowance is always not sufficient. Plus i miss mom's cooking. That's why I thinned down. Haha..

I don't call mine a frustration, but yes, it is annoying. So annoying that trying to get a card or any ID the first time, people look at you as if they didn't do it the first time. And I hate doing it alone so I always ask my mom to go with me. A kiddie part of growing up.

Well good for you you have your mom to come along. My mom is kinda busy so I kinda hate to impose or ask her to come along because I don't want to be a burden. So I'm trying to convince my cousin to come with me instead.

I feel for you since I experienced this as well when I just finished college and starting to find a job. There's a lot of things needed, papers to fill up. Right now my dilemma is getting a valid ID with my husband's surname on it since I just got married. I have to wait for 6 months for the NSO copy of our marriage contract plus another few months for the government IDs.. I really need the IDs badly

You said it. 6 months? Gosh. Plus the queuing, the crowd, and even the heat. It's so troublesome. I hope you get your ID soon as every transactions now requires an ID. Good luck.
