The four words we all want to hear at this point in our life. Well not necessarily… We’re all different right? But for me, yes. That’s exactly what I wanted to hear.
Fresh out of university & thrown into the world without a clue on what to do next. A lot of my friends are continuing on with more schooling which I think is absolutely inspiring. Many are pursuing grad school to attain a Master’s degree, some are leaving to obtain a diploma & one of my best friends is going to optometry school. How awesome do they sound?!
For me, completing my undergrad was a long time coming. I couldn’t wait to complete my degree and move onto something totally new. While I am determined to learn more about this world, I cannot do so in a controlled environment with schedules, assignments & exams anymore. I thrive on chaos & new experiences. So that’s where I’m headed to next.
Amidst the third month of my current summer employment, I received an email I had been awaiting for 3 weeks. Currently I am employed at a small research centre that doubles as a public aquarium in Eastern Canada for the summer. While I love my job, I was eager to begin planning for life after this position, as the real world is calling me.
This is where I’m headed. The Philippines. Did you think I was joking about diving into the unknown? Philippines… I’m coming for ya!
But guess what? A job offer in a totally different country comes with huge new responsibilities and a lengthy list of things to do beforehand… Here we go.
