I work now as an Industrial Designer of a furniture and product company in Makati. The salary is quite low because it’s my first “real” job daw and it’s their first time to hire a fresh grad like me. All of their employees are really good and very organized, so they’re like testing me out. I turned down 2 super good paying companies for this job. They are both stable and known companies and they are now tempting me to leave my job and work for them. I appreciate their kindness and interest but the work is not for me. Well, they are offering me a Designer work but it’s a not-so-Industrial-Design-job. So this is really challenging for me because I have to commute 2-3 hours going to work and 2-3.5 hours going home and I have to budget my salary/”allowance” everyday. Yes, I can’t deny or hide the fact that it’s going to be tiring every single day, and it’s tempting to leave that company before it’s too late (knowing that the other 2 promised to still welcome me with open arms if I quit my current job), but I know deeeeep down in my heart that this work is what I need for now. It’s kinda sad nga lang kasi I will eat dinner alone every night, and my little brother’s asleep/sleepy na pag uwi ko. But I think I really need to make these sacrifices in order to grow as a designer and be more independent. Seryoso, excited na ako maging magaling. And I know this job will help me to take that first step or level up a little/more. Aaand of course, I can never stress this enough, but this work REALLY makes me happy. :)
Hello, April 2013. I’ve been waiting for you. :’)
- Lea: Naging crush mo ba si Jollibee?
- Nikki: Hindi, si Mcdo lang.
- Lea: Ako naging crush ko si KFC.
and we ate out afterwards! yay!
I love you, but yeah, we’re done. It’s not me, it’s you. Haha. Bye bye! >:)
HUHUHU. I wasn’t aware that today’s our last day. Goodbye, Sir Teddy Bear. Thanks for your early graduation gift (BWAHAHAHA, other section). Sorry if I’m always late (like this morning,
i overslept because of my very nice dream hihihi). I’ll miss your not-so-corny sabaw jokes and endless kwento. I also want to experience “Breakfast with Jerwin” soon!!! And then we will talk about food and philosophical stuff. Hahaha. Anyway, just to be clear, I don’t have a crush on you, I just admire your style of teaching. I know I’m very silent in class and I don’t recite that much (and most of the time sometimes I don’t look at you because I’m doodling), but I really learned a lot from you. So yeah, THANK YOU. You’re a brilliant Professor. :’)
Thank you! :’)
Yeah, I’m ranting now. Feel it. Feeeeel it.
RANT! RANT! RANT!!!
K. I’m done na. :)
I’m talking about you, final delibs. -_-
