I know this post is way overdue but I figured it’s better late than never, amirite?To be honest, I wasn’t going to post this — not because I don’t want to share this momentous occasion with you but because I didn’t have great quality photos of the said event which is kind of sad. It has been almost a month since I graduated from college with a degree of Bachelor of Arts in Communication. Call me weird but I wasn’t that much giddy when I graduated because I didn’t want to graduate yet. Lol #SepAnx. I feel like I’m going to miss college forever. l.o.l
College surely had been a wild rollercoaster. I can truly say that I have learned a lot from my stay on campus. The faces, the memories, and the misadventures are just some of the things I will extremely miss. It’s time to move on, though. Huhu //sad
Anyway, so a week after I graduated I applied to three different institutions here and there. Even before, I already planned to stay here in town for the meantime and not pursue a job in the metro like everyone else. I just don’t want to be out there yet or ever, I don’t know. One thing I know, though, is that it’ll be hard to find a financially rewarding job here in my area but I just don’t want to be ~stressed~ because of the traffic and the hassle of commuting every single day if I ever decide to take over Manila. In addition to that, Tarlac is my home. I have a strong case of SepAnx so I
feel know that I’ll surely be homesick.
I was immediately hired after I had my demo on the second institution I applied to. At first, I felt sad which is really weird. I mean, why would someone be sad after knowing he/she was hired? That time, I just felt that I was officially no longer a student. I needed to suck it up and take this adulthood challenge thingy for realz. After being hired, the third company I applied to called me for an initial interview. It was hard because I also wanted to work there but I had to say no because I was already employed. The struggle (!!!).
Like what I’ve said before, I was immediately hired. I felt like everything went fast and I wasn’t prepared. I was hired on a Friday and started Monday the week after. The first week was really hard. I didn’t know that the turn-out of events would be really fast. I mean, I thought I was just going to pass my CVs and wait. I was hopeful, yes, but I never would have thought that a week after my graduation I’d already have a job. Thinking about it, I never had the time to enjoy my “vacation”.
Right now, I’m still adjusting but I just want to say that I’m quite enjoying my job. I mean, I love what I do and at the same time I’m learning and influencing other people so it’s a win, ayt? Hopefully, I’ll survive the stressful days of being a working girl because I’m pretty sure it won’t always be sunny! lmao
Hello, real world! I’m ready to face whatevz you’re gonna throw my way.
