Am I really ready to face the real world?
I’m an official graduate for a month now and I still feel like nothing much have changed, or nothing really changed. I still feel like doing the things that I usually do when I was a student, the only difference is that I’m not a student. Gosh, do you get what I’m trying to say?
Let me put it this way, when you graduated college, does that mean that you’re expected to immediately look for a job? I don’t really know what to do. There isn’t any article or rule on what to do or what’s not to do, so where should I really place myself?
There isn’t any problem with me looking for a job. i find it more exciting to look for a good company, do some research about them, and what is more thrilling is that when they contact you and invite for an interview and/or exam. The challenge here is how to get all the luck that you need to overcome the people who’ll judge you.
The real world is really not forgiving. Being enough is never really enough. It’s like being in the pool of people at your same level or better people, the challenge is that having something in you that should stand out and make you, somehow, the best. I’m not really sure of what to do. I’m not confident that I can show a good TOR and I’m not even sure if my resume is that impressive. So what’s in store for me?
There’s a lot of thoughts that’s coming into my mind right now. But the question that’s bothering me for days already is what path should I take? Engineering and Photography are completely different industry. I know I could excel both ways, but where should I dig in deeper? What I need now is clarification. A certain light that would lead me to a better path. And I’m not really sure of what would happen to me in the coming days, and I’ll keep on hoping that what’s really for me should prevail. I’m hoping and never did I stop.
Perhaps I’m a little paranoid right now. I’m thinking of a lot of things and I’m pretty sure that I’m not in the good state to make or to critical things. I don’t know when’s the right time to be right, but I believe that now is really not the right now.
I’ve been saying random thoughts again. I just missed blogging. I miss the old me but there’s no other way but to go forward. i haven’t changed a lot and that’s prolly because I haven’t learned from the past. I have self issues to deal with, and I don’t think no one could help me on this. I just need to let this off me and hope to have a better life in the coming days.
God bless us all : )
And so I guess this is it. I am now officially a graduate and one of the unemployed filipino citizens. And as they say, a new book has been opened for me. More challenging, more thrilling, more fun. I’m not that excited. I don’t know why.
When I was in College, I used to think that having a degree is just enough to keep you moving forward. Reality is, it’s easy at all. There’s a lot of things that you have to manage, especially in my case that I live alone. The usual monthly allowance will come to its end soon. The late-night sleeping habit has to be adjusted. More stress management, time management and lots of management has to be considered. Just thinking of it makes me want to go back to being a student, but quitting is not an option. This is it, this is the real life. How I wish I could turn back time, but there’s no other way but to move forward and live life the way it is supposed to be.
Being a graduate opens a lot of doors, opportunities as they say. And you are not alone with that opportunities, there’s bunch of fresh graduates, graduates, undergraduates and what have you who would battle for a chance to own that opportunity. So I must say that we should never let a single chance pass us by.
I’m not really in the mood of saying things right now, but I just feel like bursting these thoughts that randomly flowing in my mind right now. I’ve been overwhelmed by the fact that I’m a graduate, unemployed, and over-thinking of things that might happen in the coming days.
New beginning. New hope. New life. I’m thrilled. I just hope that I can get through whatever life will offer. And with all of these random shits being said, let me say that graduating is not the end of hardships, it is the beginning of more and more sleepless nights, thrill, and excitement. And you, being a student, be happy with your state now because you’re lucky that you could still enjoy freedom. Blaaaaaah.
It’s our graduation day today. I had fun. I just feel a little pessimistic of some things. I should get my life back.
Congratulations to all Mapuans who graduated this day! God bless us all : )
I’m too tired to create an entry tonight but I’m happy and too much excited because I have a landphone and a broadband internet connected already! Phew!
I you must know, I have been internet-less for almost a month and a half until today that PLDT contractors went to our house to set-up this coolness. Hells yeaaah!
Anyway, I was at work, and sort of working, for almost 12 hours. The project that I have with my some of my IE colleagues and former professors from college makes me busy these past few days and more stressed in the next 40 (or so) days. Oh well, it’s better to have this kind of activity than doing nothing here in this lonesome condo.
So yeah, I’ve got a landline number now. Only that there’s no one to call but it’s fine, at least it’ll be easier to order food and uhhhh…
Anyway, I think I should take a shower now and sleep afterwards. I need to wake up early. Oh, I hope that a company would call me and offers an interesting job.
