My course and my career.


Anyway, there was a talk on Monday about careers. The overall point of that talk was that we needed to figure out what we wanted to do in respect to our careers and once we do that, we need to equip ourselves with the right skills and tools.

So the question is right now is, what do we want to do in respect to our careers?

Honestly, I am quite uncertain what I want to do for my career.

I just know that I want to be in top management. Or even better, a CEO.

But of course, how do I get there?

I know that I am willing to work my ass off to achieve what I want to achieve.
So I know I am fine.

I know some people might think that I am taking a very idealistic optimistic approach but I like this approach so I will use this one.
What if things don't go as I want them? It's okay. I am winging this as I go so I am totally cool with the results.

But the thing is, I have to think and decide on what sort of career I want. To make it more detailed so that I get an advantage.
Problem is, I don't really know.

The reason why I chose Economics is because it's more general. Is that a bad thing? No, it means that I cannot choose directly because I want to learn it all. Yes, I am a little greedy that way.

I love Economics. I love Finance. I love it all.
I can't choose.
Not right now anyway.

I know I am greedy in that sense. I have always been a person who wants it all.
I know that I can't get all most of the times.
But I will try.
I will only choose when I know that I definitely can't have it all and I have no choice but to choose.

Anyway, I just want to put it out there that Economics course is not a stupid course or an easy one either (not the one I'm taking anyway).
Yes, it may be general.
But Economics is like philosophy.
It's the mother of the modern monetary world. 
So it may seem general but you get a better understanding of the whole picture and how the entire system works.

I am just a little sick and tired of people saying that Economics is stupid or useless or too general or easy.
Because it's not.

And personally, I love Economics. I did not take it because I just wanted a degree or because it was "easy".

So yea.

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Growing up, closure and an interview.

I guess it's time I grow up. When high school is over, I have to grow up, be a mature and a responsible little young lady.
There's alot of things I have to learn.

To be honest, I'm a little afraid of leaving graduating from high school.
WHY?
I mean, I've been going to school for years. And the thought that it will finally end is a relief but also a little frightening.

But it's a new chapter in life. Everyone goes through it. So yea, I'm afraid but excited at the same time. There's so much to do after the graduating. College, driver licence & etc...

I guess I'll miss high school a little. Never thought it would end...but yea, it will soon enough.

Before I left high school, I need some closure. I mean, I made some friends & lost some friends. I do have some regrets. I was such an idiot and arrogant ass last time.
So yea, before high school end, I need to send some letters to the few people I hurt.



But I guess, that's high school. You make a hell lot of…
