i'm already 25 years old and will be turning 26 this august. in the philippines, even when we live in a modern world, that age is still somehow a cause for alarm if we're not yet settled -- whether in our careers, love life or family life. i am not going to lie. i am immensely scared about this leap that i am going to take. i finally talked to our manager today and he gave me this "your-a-woman-who-can-do-great-things" speech and saying that i am almost the next level, that i have worked so hard to succeed in an industry that i am good at. he wanted me to plan out my life in the next 5 years outside the company (or industry) and compare it with a plan inside the company. i smiled with all my courage and said, "i know that i am good at my job but i don't want to be doing something that i hate for a long time. honestly, i don't plan to plan for the next month."
in 'how i met your mother' season 1, lily told ted that going to san francisco may be a mistake but it's a mistake that she has to make and that a bigger mistake would be not being able to find out if it's a mistake or not. (ted totally got side-tracked over the number of mistakes in the sentence)... i know it's confusing but i really still do think and feel that i have to do this.
sorry if i am boring you with three successive posts about my plan to leave my current job. it's been in my mind for the past week --- every day for that matter. just wanted to let it all out. thanks for listening. better topics next week, promise. *wink*
