according to a professor of mine:
“rome wasn’t built in a day…”
he was talking about how we should be patient when it comes to getting those white collar jobs.
yeah i guess you’ll really be a boot licker at first, plus being underpaid. we shouldn’t complain, according to him. sabi nya rin if we wanted to get big money, at this early stage, we should consider working at a call center nalang daw. no IQ needed (ang mean! haha), they’d only require you to be able to speak the english language quite well, and you’ll be paid higher than some who works harder just to get an adequate amount of salary. i know right. lugi. i say, hell no im working at a call center. sayang napag aralan ko. i mean no offense sa mga nag ccall center ngayon. 🙂 inggit ako actually. but i wanted to work wherein i could use what i’ve learned in school naman.
anyway, im getting off topic.
i guess what i wanted to stress out is that im quite worried about what happens when i graduate and when i face the real world. i can already imagine my parents cutting my allowance, telling me to find a job na, so that they could make me pay the bills. i can also imagine myself asking favors from my mom, then she’ll just remind me that i’m already working, so i should be responsible enough to save money to buy what i want. then i can also imagine my parents coming up to me, asking me money for my sibling’s tuition.
so yeah, i guess ill be facing these in the near future, starting out real small at first. really, even if im underpaid, i dont care. i get to help my family, even in the smallest way.
my professor said that we shouldnt complain and complain. we live in a place wherein it is already overpopulated and good paying jobs are really hard to find. that’s why people work abroad na. if ever we get the opportunity to work, we should just be thankful. though of course, pride rin ang pag-uusapan eh. and it’s a fact that some people would never get a job that will make them feel mediocre and among the flock of birds, so to speak. in all honestly, as an architecture student, i will really feel mediocre if i get the job as a cadd operator or renderer lang, kasi even a normal non-architecture student can learn cadd or rendering through self studying. ang daming tutorials online. i wanted a job as sa designer. not someone who just encodes the designs of the boss. worse, taga trace ka lang ng trabaho. boooo.
but hey, renderers are getting good money abroad, sabi nila ah. 🙂
anyway, whatever happens talaga, i pray that i’ll get a job that makes me use the talents or knowledge that i’ve learned in my looong stay in college.
else, ill take arch’t noche’s offer of getting paid 30,000 a month.allowance and meals included.
The job? eaaaasy. survey/meaure the batad rice terraces, using the metric scale.
…. ung maliit……… god demmet. haha
i’ll end this for now. i dont know if im making any sense or kung co-related ang mga paragraphs, but hey, im just talking here.
may change of heart/ metanoia ako sa thesis ngayon. 🙂 lol.
i think its going to benefit me naman. although i miss my original thesis class,
i think ill be fine. i just hate the 7am classes. not a good thing for nocturnal people like me.
back to work! 🙂
“rome wasn’t built in a day…” sorry, it’s not as deep as the other quotations , but it really got in my head. 😛
WEI: this is from my schoolmate, Ryan. Natuwa (at na-inspire kasi parehas tayo ng iniisip) lang talaga ko sa post nya kaya ni-immortalize ko lang dito without asking. Sorry ryan…heheh… busy ka sa thesis eh..no need to bother you. I totally agree with him. I wouldn’t link his page para may magsumbong. Lols.
