i received my pay check after 6 months,
its a meagre figure of 1852.
i looked at it with mixed feelings, for one, i felt happy, because i could earn some keep with my own hands, doing some good n doing what i liked at the same time.
but i was sure, i exchanged this amount with time away from my children,
and so it will be meagre, at all times.
so i warn myself, that since this is an exchange, i better do good work, or at least, do it the way i want, not accepting anything less.
i had a short chat with my colleague, n she said, never ever give up writing even if you quit.
