New times, new beginnings and birthday resolutions!

The birthday month is here! Quick, someone pop a tube of confetti or something, because in 3 weeks time, I will be the vibrant age of 23!

That means, I can’t sing Taylor Swift’s 22 anymore…
But I can make my own song about what 23 is going to be all about.
Which is NEW and GOOD CHANGE.
I know, I know, it’s been close to a year since I decided to start this blog, all to show what the transition into adulthood and work life (and responsibilities) is going to be about. I have been anything but regular. But instead of justifying why it was so, I am going to list a series of things that I intend on changing this time around. And what better month to start it than June!

• Post regularly. And by that I mean a set time of the week. I was thinking every Tuesdays and Fridays to start with, because they are my favorite days of the week. I like Saturdays too but I know the weekend schedule will get to me at one point, so T.A.F it is!
• So my vacation lasted a little longer than I thought it would, and as a result, I have gained a little too much weight than I thought I would. Also working for about a year has resulted in a bit of lethargy which I absolutely dislike! So I did a bit of research and I am not looking at a few interesting classes to join to help me be a bit more active.

• Write more! It’s a MUST. An absolute must! And be more honest about it. No more, of god I need to write something so let’s doodle in some… No! Good, regular writing should help me sharpen my skills which have been dormant for quite a white.
• Organize myself. My thoughts, goals, achievements and the things I want to currently do and put more of an effort in fulfilling them. Because 23 is going to be the age of clarity. You figure yourself out, what you want to do and who you want to become and I want all of that to be nothing but the best of what I can be!

Sighs. This isn’t going to be easy, but I am sure that what’s going to come at the end of it all would be nothing short of pure brilliance. But onward year of clarity! And no turning back!

 

*wheeee*

The Updated Update

So this is odd…

I’ll be honest, the idea of this blog was to capture my last few months of summer, the whole transition of the job hunting phase, how to apply for one, how to get one, and most importantly how the kick start of my career follows. And really… I havent done a thing. Why?

Because my summer was SO busy!

I kid you not, from my last exam, to my sister fashion show, to the relatives that came to stay, to my graduation, to comic con, to my birthday… till now. Which helped me realize something very important about myself. I like being busy. I like having something to do. I am not the girl to go around, lounging about doing absolutely nothing. Wow. I like being busy.

Which is why when I was stuck at home, job hunting, and all my friends were either in a job of their own, or in college… I was slowly losing myself. I had no set objective, no goal, well.. Yeah my goal was to get a job but all I did was wait for things to happen… (which wasnt my fault! You give in resumes and wait, and I really dont like waiting =|) And… I really didnt like the way I felt.

I felt low, dark, unproductive, colorless if I may. And I’m a creative person! I thrive on ideas, dreams, wonder and magic. I wanted to get this waiting thing over and…. THANKFULLY, after a month of being covered with the weight of waiting (see what I did there :D) I. Got. A. Job.

This entry, I am writing at MY desk (because I finished my work for the day and its only lunch time!) and so far, work is good. I’m a copy writer on probation in an advertising company. Sighs.

I cannot WAIT to see what the future holds for me, considering (believe it or not) this is my FIRST job! Yes, I am a graduate fresh out of college, working, and getting accustomed to the work life, and culture and all that jazz…. so I thought,

Wait a minute.

Why now make my blog about my work like but still retain that part of college student-me that loved summer. I can be the fun working woman… and this blog will help me keep the thing I treasure the most.

My Creativity. 

Ohmygosh, my boss just popped in my cubicle and I was typing out “my creativity”, he gives me the heads up of my work, when the client reverts back. Anyway. =\

So here we go.

To the infinite warm feeling you get when you realize summer is about to come to an end and a new chapter in your life is about to begin,

To the uneasy,nervous,anxious yet excited, adventurous, optimistic you,

To the start of a new phase of my life, if you want to hope along for the ride,

The Last Days of Summer.
