I just have this unadulterated loathing for these three words. Thinking about them makes breath faster. Gasp, i need air! It's like someone's squeezing my throat. Raised eyebrows, rolling eyes, flip hair and a deep sigh. Pout.
I certainly don't see myself in the corporate world. No selling credit cards for Citibank, answering phones for Rockwell Land or doing inventory for San Miguel for me (as of now). I might not stand it! I might not survive it - possibly doing something you don't like because it's socially desirable to have a job or internship soon, or because it is driven by money.
I had to take my NSTP again in senior year because I incurred too many absences since I don't enjoy what I'm doing. Talk about conviction.
I am not being arrogant, nor do I not take into consideration the learning behind these OJTs. BUT you have the rest of your lives, I repeat, the rest of your lives (!!!) to learn from work - a formal job!
Right now or maybe after graduation, I don't want to settle for a job. (Technically, I'm not unemployed because I'm not looking for a job) There's just so much else to do.
My plan - go for a vacation for four months after grad. Possibly dedicate my time more to my environmental work or to UNICEF. These two "jobs" gave me so much insights, helped me make new friends, broadened my horizon and forced me out of my comfort zone.
Or I can go for that Africa tour (or Euro tour) that I've always wanted to do. I'm actually saving 2,500 dollars for this.
By the way, my mom bribed me to go to law school! The bribe is really tempting and I'm not sure if I'd accept it or not. I'm planing to go for further studies after that 4 months vacation but that further studies should be geared towards the ultimate plan - a diplomatic position, either an ambassador, something that has to do with the United Nations, or a consultant to World Bank or IMF.
I'm sure not everyone would be happy, or at least agree, with what I wrote here but people are entitled to their own opinion. What works for you may not essentially work for others:D
