Starting Anew

Wednesday, October 19, 2011
After 17 grueling-but-fun years of studying, I have finally graduated with a degree in Marketing Management last October 15. Although I did not get any awards, it was nice to finally hear my name being called to get my diploma. Despite of the long hours wearing a very uncomfortable 3.5-inch heels I had to endure, the joy of finally graduating is incomparable.

Thanks to my blockmate Haze and his brother Joseph Yuso, for the photo.
However, this end is only the beginning.

It was funny how most of my friends didn't only greet me with a "Congratulations!" but also with a "Welcome to bum life!" Although 2 years in pre-school, 2 years in kinder, 6 years in grade school, 4 years in high school, and 3 & a half years in college is difficult and tiresome, I don't plan to become a bum for too long.

Our revised thesis paper was submitted last August 24, marking the end of our Marketing Management course and the beginning of my bum mode. And with almost 2 months of bumming around at home and hanging out at malls, I've got tired of it already. Yes, it's good to stay in bed as long as I want, eat as much as I want, watch TV and surf the internet as long as I want, and sleep as late as I can. But, it's hard to watch my savings go zero. And it's as tiring to do the same routine everyday.

And with that, I'm now starting to move forward.
  • I'll start waking up as early as 8am.
  • I'll restart the 30-Day Shred Workout that I didn't finish.
  • I'll start doing some business-related work for my dad.
  • I'll try to cook more healthy dishes.
  • I'll sleep earlier, and make sure I have at least 8 hours of sleep.
  • I'll reflect on my priorities, actions, goals and life.
So although this sounds cliché and cheesy, "World, I'm now ready!"


  1. High five! I hope you succeed with 30 day shred. I tried it a couple of times but I become so sore that I had to stop. So I'm just doing Pilates now! :)

  4. Congratulations! Nothing beats the joy of finally getting that diploma. =)

  5. welcome to the real world! soon you'll realize how hard it is to face "reality".. how you'd wish that you stay a student'll also realize that "real" problems are really hard than exams and deadlines... you also have to switch jobs to finally fill in a certain gap in your heart and's hard but it's fun too! so just enjoy the ride...
