Safe and Sound.
Good day! I just landed not too long ago. And finally got around to updating this space. I've been pretty busy getting some last min things done before my flight which explains my lack of update within the social media platform. Honestly I'm sort of glad to be back. Although I miss the boy already, this is ultimately my last semester here in Melbourne. So it really is a big deal for me to be here right now completing my final journey towards graduation. 6 months from now, I'll be a proud University graduate entering a world of uncertainty, hoping to succeed in whatever I choose to do in life. It is a scary thought.. Not knowing how it'll turn out after this. School has always been "safe". You always know what's coming. Work on the other hand, is a whole new experience. But I guess that is a path in life. The next step. Time for a new chapter. I am extremely afraid but also superbly excited. I've always wondered what it'll be like. And I will soon find out. But for now, I just have to survive the next 6 months. Well, actually come to think of it, it's mid-July now. So technically, its for another 4 months (exams are in November). It's not long. Easy right? I hope so.
I was thinking earlier today, how does one know that THAT'S what they want to make a career out of? I know what I enjoy doing. But is it enough to make a living out of it? I really don't know.. How does one know for sure that that's the path they want to go? I've spoken to a few people and they are so certain about their career path. But my question is how? How do you know for sure? Is there a guidebook on this?
The beauty of society today is that one doesn't have to forge a fixed path. A lot of us these days try a range of different things. And I think.. I guess that's how they decide. This is one area I feel utterly lost and confused. And as my course is coming to an end, it's time for me to really sit and think about my future. Which I have not quite figured out the answer yet. Hmmmm... Maybe I should see a guidance counsellor on this.. Thoughts??
On a totally different note, I received this in the mail.
Apparently they sell really unique jewelry. I shall check it out after this :)
Have a great day!
Lots of love,
