Organizers Experience

My Experiments on searching for my Ideal Career.
Lets start from the very beginning of when I started with this Job. 

It came to me through a friend. I told my sister about me wanting to try and be an organizer. So it happens to be that her boyfriend got a job offer to organize an event. I asked if I could intern under him. He agreed and I am so grateful for it. 
We organized an event; a talent show to be specific, that lasted for 3 months, that only requires me to go only on the weekends. Giving up my weekends wasn't that hard. I enjoy my time outside home. 
During the first week, I felt regret and fear. I took it as a fear of getting out of my comfort zone. I told myself, "you wanted this. you got it. Don't let it down. Just let it pass. Do your best." so I decided to put my feelings fear and regret aside and do my very best. So I did. 

At times, I would feel awkward, not knowing what to do. So I just observed what others are doing. They are all running around, rushing and panicking at times. All I was thinking is "What would I do, to get this event going as smooth as possible?" so I began thinking. "Things should be done before hand. Everything should be all ready to go. Everyone should be aware." 

I met new people. Whose company I enjoyed very much. At first I was quiet, as I usually am, but as I promised, I would be social. So I did. I tried my best to, and I am so proud of myself for doing so. 

As time passed, I thought the life of working as an organizer very exciting, and it requires you to be social and be extremely friendly and patient with everyone. When I said I wanted to work ON the field, this really counts as working ON the field. 

There will be times when you will love doing the job and times when you will hate it because the people sometimes complain about things not going their way. Doing this helped me understand more about how people act. I noticed that I am more of an observer. I write down little notes in my head about what to do and what not to do. Its like a list of life or something. 

In Conclusion, I really enjoyed being an Organizer, it helped me show another side of myself, another more exciting part of me. If there was another opportunity in which I would be organizing something, I would take it. As for it being my Ideal Job, maybe. I still don't know, but what I do know is that, as time passes, everything will all be clear to me.

I plan to major in Management at University, and probably take my masters in that as well. My mother wants to send me to a culinary school in the Philippines for 6 months. I absolutely don't mind taking a culinary class for 6 months. During my time working as an organizer, I've grown to miss cooking. I cook from time to time, making simple dishes. 
If I had a chance to actually go to the Philippines to take a vocational course on culinary for 6 months. I would. But I would like to take my Masters in Management first.
