Congratulations Batch 2013!

First of all, Congratulations Graduates!!

I know that you've worked hard for everything to reach this far and I know that it's an understatement to say that going through a lot of requirements was hard - because it was really more than that. It's a kind of ambivalence, the feeling of being happy and sad at the same time. Happy, because you've finally got your degree or finally taking the next level by choosing your own too. Sad, because you're going to miss everything about school, going to be apart with all your friends you used to be with every single day and every single fun you had way back then, so on and so forth.

There will be a lot of pressure coming in. For those who will be freshies in college this school year, welcome to the life of no sleep and time management but incredibly fun phase of life. It's time to decide whether you want to pursue the degree you were thinking since a kid - having a small blackboard, doctor's kit toys or a lot of paints and papers.
 Choosing a degree is not easy. I repeat.. NOT freakin' easy. It will lead you to all the things in the future - like what you really want to study for four years or even five, who and what you want to be, so on and so forth. I have been undecided on whatever course I should take way back then. First, I want to take Mass Communication or Communication Arts, then Nutrition and Dietetics, proceed to Business course, then wanted to shift to Architecture. I know you've been asking yourself the question, "What do I want to do with my life?" I felt the same thing.. and perhaps, from time to time, still feeling it, though I'm more matured (ehehe) now and I could say that somehow, I know what I want to do with my life already, and how to do it? I'm just going with the flow but, of course, being careful and wise about all the things I should do.

So yes, you have chosen what course you would take. The next thing is... the university or college where you want to spend four or five years of studying. A lot of things should be taken into consideration: Quality of education, tuition fee, transport, how hard the course will be..oh yeah... Everything. So if you passed a well-known university or our state university, big congratulations to you! But if you didn't make it to the university of your choice, it's okay. It's not about the university too, it's actually about you... studying hard, being active to everything, gaining a lot of experiences and whatnot. That's it! What you want to prove will take you to what you want to be. Just keep your vision clear and your goals high. Do the hard work and don't waste any opportunity to shine and create a mark.

For those who finished their studies and finally got the degree! Welcome to reality! I'm not saying that what you had way back then wasn't real but now, this is more of a serious stuff. A different level of real. I know that you know that it's finally the time to look for a job that will interest you, will help you to build your dreams and of course a job that you would love. A thing that you love doing wouldn't be feel work anymore because you know for a fact that you are enjoying and loving what you do. You will wake up each day inspired and motivated to accomplish everything that is needed to accomplish. But if it's the other way around, don't pressure yourself if you still don't have any appointments for job interviews and so. Looking for a work isn't easy but pressuring and stressing yourself won't do any better. Just enjoy first while you can, once you started working everything should be dealt and flexed on your work time. Also, don't be too picky or choosy, learn to evaluate yourself and what you can do but don't be over confident that you can do everything for it will ruin your expectations in the end.

What you want to do with your career is all up to you. Just be on the right path and do whatever you feel like doing, of course, it should be good for you. Don't be afraid to make mistakes, for that will be the way on how we can learn. Always remember: Sometimes you win, sometimes you... learn.

Congratulations Batch 2013! Cheers!
