Life - So it begins

For those of you who follow my Book/Fashion/Food blog, Interested in ALL, you may have seen a post of my graduation day. Yes, that's right, I have officially graduated from University with a Degree in Bachelor of Science in Business Informatics. But for those of you who missed it, here it is: Graduation Day.

From that day and onwards, I have had the constant pressure to get on with my life outside from working for my father and from sitting in front of the computer screen all day. I have felt the pressure of getting a job and living my life out in the real world. And I honestly thought I was ready for it.

I would imagine myself walking into the building where I "worked", dressed in the most fabulous corporate outfit and greeting everyone as I make my way up to my office. It was a life that I supposedly wanted. It was the image of a life my brain put in front of me, but there was this feeling at the back of my head that felt wrong about that particular image.

Whether it was fear or my spidy-senses telling me it's a bad idea that I should avoid, I am unsure.

From my observation from those around me who have explained their situations after they graduated from university or as some of you may call it; undergrad school, and the majority of them has been in a very similar situation as me. They graduated, and then what? What do they do next? They go ahead and try working and jumping into different industries that are related and/or unrelated to the major they took. They would go at it for years upon years, and suddenly while they're working it hits them, "This is what I want to do" they say.

They've spent and wasted their precious years doing things that makes them miserable and will most probably add to the wrinkles that are bound to appear on their faces when they get older. I cannot seem to wrap my head around the idea of when one finishes college they have to go through multiple jobs before they settle down in one.

I believe in happiness. 
Happiness is the only way to live.
Whether you're happy doing nothing or happy being productive. 

Why can't we have all find our way the moment we get out of the constant cycle of finding jobs that we don't really want, and find something we do want.

Looking for the perfect career? Find something that makes you feel good and excited when you image yourself working there, not something that makes you feel scared and doubtful. Feeling feelings of doubt always seem to find it's way to things that are bad and dark.

And if you are currently working in a position you dislike completely and want to leave. Then leave, but only if you have a back up plan. No one wants to quit their job and end up getting kicked out of your apartment a month later because they didn't pay rent. Even if you've only been there for a month, I encourage you to go towards the things that make you excited and happy, then quit. It's okay.

You're going after what you want, so don't consider yourself as a quitter because you quit something you don't want to do. You are strong for pushing away the obstacles leading to where you want to be.

You are strong, and you are happy.
