What am I writing?

Hello internet, I am back! (I’m kidding – I don’t know how long I could keep up this act!) I’m not sure how can I stay consistent with this blog. I’m cringing looking at my old posts – reading through tales of my night outs and badly written reviews. I think this says a lot…

Grad School at 22?

For the past months, I’m working as an Accounts Executive at this small company. I’ve been enjoying my new work environment and my colleagues. During my interview with the CEO, he asked about my Professional Salesmanship class as he went through my ToR. To be honest, it wasn’t my best subject among my Marketing Majors…

What’s up

Hello internet. Yes, I’m still alive. I feel that it’s been a long time since I’ve written something here. Currently, I’m living with my parents in my hometown working for minimum wage. I’m happy – still trying to figure out what I really want to do, but happy, nonetheless. Sometimes I question myself asking if…

THE REASON WHY I’M GIVING UP ON MY FIRST JOB

 is that I felt that I’m trapped. I know older readers would say that this is such a millennial thing to do but let me tell you this: IT IS NOT JUST A MILLENNIAL THING TO DO. Why? Other generations would also shift from job to job during the first few years after graduation. In…

The thing is,

I want to go back home and live with my family. I want to be able to find a job that pays me enough that I’d still be able to treat myself to something small at the end of every paycheck. I want to be able to look forward to getting up in the mornings…

The adult life chose me

This weekend my mom and my sisters had visited me. They literally stayed for about 28 hours before they headed back home. I was about to impress my mom by treating them to dinner but my first ever salary still hasn’t shown up on my ATM account. I was scared, I was already spending my…

These past few weeks

have been nothing but stress, late working hours, sleepless nights, and panic attacks. I have never been so overworked in my life to the point that I wanted to quit right then and there. But I can’t. I have this habit that when I started something, I’d have to finish it. I know that this…

Things my mentors taught me

via Daily Prompt: Mentor   For the past 18 years that I have been in school, I have also considered my teachers as my mentors. Not only they taught me basic stuff that led up me this point, but they also squeezed in a little nuggets of wisdom along the way.   LOVE YOUR PARENTS…

Dear Diary,

Why was I in a rush to grow up? I didn’t want to admit any of this but I feel like I’m still not ready to become an adult. I thought that taking an extra year to pursue my Liacom degree would help me mature so when I do graduate, I’d take things more seriously…

The time I almost flunked ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE

I was a sophomore and it was the second semester. Looking back at it now, I realized that I was that stupid to have almost failed a minor class. No, the class was not boring and no, the professor was not bad – in fact I actually really liked my professor. Then why did I…

The reason I was rushing to look for jobs,

right after (even before) graduating was because I don’t want to disappoint my family. I don’t want to have to hear them nag about how I’m unemployed during a get-together. I also really wanted to get a head start on working from the bottom and work myself up. Aside from that, I have always envisioned myself…

Saying goodbye

to the house which I grew up in for 21 years is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my young life. Every trip I’ve gone to before wasn’t as bad, as a matter of fact, I’ve only cried the first night during my 2-month internship in Manila. I guess it’s because I…
