Hello! It’s been so long since I’ve written and published something in this blog. I’m 21 years old now, and all of this still feels so unreal to me. It’s just so amazing how time flew so fast that I barely even recall what happened in these past few years. Who would have thought that four years in the university would be over in a jiffy, and now I am already a working girl.
Going back, I feel like my last semester went by so fast because I was occupied with the numerous requirements I had to finish to make it till graduation. After that semester, I had a month to spend some time with my family at home while still going back and forth in the university to finish all the needed signatories. Finally, I spent my last 3 days in the university for my department, college, and university commencement exercise –and there, I am finally a degree holder.
I spent two months resting and just spending my time with my family. I also did some freelance work with Anna back then for Armando’s. However, those two long months felt like a real stretch to me, as I’ve felt the need to apply for work after that. Looking back now, I would have told myself to rest some more because it’s going to be a long tough ride ahead.
It’s not that I regret having my work right now. I believe that I was meant to send my application that one random night of September. I am now at my seventh month as a Creative Strategy Officer in an events management company. To be honest, I’ve seen myself really grow in this work, and I’m so grateful to have accomplished things I can’t imagine that I can actually do back then. It was stressful and needs a lot of hard work, but I’m really glad I am able to make it this far.
Having to reflect on my Hello! page, I figured that it really has been so long since I’ve written and published something in this blog. All of this still feels so unreal to me. It’s just so amazing how time flew so fast that I barely even recall what happened in these past few years. Who would have thought that four years in the university would be over in a jiffy, and now I am already a working girl.
life for days, I realized that although I’m given a lot of opportunities in my work right now, I don’t think I’d be able to stay for so long. I’ve been thinking a lot about my career, and my life in general –what I want to be, and the life I want to live.
I’m a girl who really loves learning and I figured that it could be possible for me to study again. But of course, I would need to earn money for my studies. I do have a job right now, but at the same time, I also want to manage the small printing business that we have. It really has a lot of potential for expansion and I think, what it needs is for someone to actually focus on it. With this, I think after my time with the job that I have right now, I would be focusing more with this. I’ve also been considering to teach maybe, but that would mean that I would have to study again and earn another degree. I’d love to learn more about art though.
Lastly, I’m trying to be more explorative of my so-called “love life” which is actually non-existent in this universe. My friends and officemates have been trying to persuade me to try this dating app, so I did. However, I’m just having some difficulties finding people that I think would really match me. I don’t know, I think, this part of my life should be in a more comprehensive post so that I’d figure more on what to do about it. I mean, I’m 21 now, so I understand what my friends are trying to say that I should at the very least explore or date. I will.
There are so much to think about right now, but I’ll take care of it one at a time. Hopefully, the path I’ll be taking would be clearer that before… I just want to be a better person, that’s all, and I feel that.
I guess that’s it for my life update. Stay safe, everyone!
