Once in a while I have this knack of searching Tumblr for the tag “OJT” or “Internship” for no reason at all. Reading the entries though, especially those from CS/IT fields or those that are kinda ranting that they still have xx hours left to finish while whining makes me look back on my On-the-Job training.
I admit, I’m in the state of confusion in a certain part of my life. That is, aside from being very busy and battling with colds that I’m not able to update my blog. I use all my time to work, watch NCIS episodes when I’m resting and sleep.
I turn to music too, when I want to focus on what I am doing or when I’m thinking about things. Or when I want to find answers. In another search of a beautiful song to add in my list, I stumbled upon Jason Mraz: “I Won’t Give Up“.
I used to live a life where I was always playing safe. I think being brought up in a sheltered environment made me that way. I don’t play outside with other kids, unless I am in school. I had a service from grade school up to 2nd year high school. I don’t go out alone to the mall and the places that I know is just my hometown and the mall nearest our house.
All of that changed in high school. I learned to play computer games. I get to go to my classmate’s house for projects/practice. I get to commute everyday on my own.
And a lot of firsts in college. I don’t say I already tried everything that there is. I still have a lot ahead of me. Things that people tell me I have to try to do because it’s fun, it’s inspiring, it’s interesting, etc. To live each day as if it’s the last, to live life to the fullest. And this is where this quote comes in.
I do things that I love, I decide on my own, I do what makes me happy.. As long as it’s not against my principles in life.
Even if it means I stand alone. 🙂
