Here we go. I found myself starting the third week of my first job, a moment I've been craving through all those dark days tortured by thesis, before graduation, overcoming all the obstacles. I am not an excellent mechanical/industrial engineer and this, therefore, was no easy journey for me. Those days still remained in my mind when I had to convince myself that I would went again my advisor and was not taking the PhD track, when I had to recharge myself after a full day's internship life biking in the park telling myself that days like this tough will come to an end, when I kept encouraging myself that I can fulfill my Master defense in time. Soon, all those were over and new start began.

My new company, I believe, was the best choice I made based on all different alternatives that I may have. It is not among the fortune 500 yet, but I would not work for a fortune 500 company over this one. As Dr. Lee told me, by joining a huge organization, I was more or less just an add-on. However, working for the right company, I can contribute and grow really quick, to make a difference. Months ago, I wrote myself emails regarding career choice, telling myself to choose this company over the others regardless of salary or location as I have the chance to choose where my interest relies within the engineering world. It worked out, maybe the first time I listened to my own choice. It didn't disappoint me. This was a motivating organization with colleagues appreciating each other and aiming at continuous improvement. I always have the belief that one becomes excellent working with excellent people. My boss is very open and friendly, exciting about our company vision just as I hope. Colleagues are mainly gentlemen and either handsome or cute. This new position is not 8am-5pm as I hoped, however, employees stayed way later for work. I felt sorry that I won't have too much free time to learn things out of work. However, still, given this condition, I am to make use of every resource to make time count. Why not? I am at my early 20's and there is no better time to strive for a bright future. Despite the fact that my period came my first day of week and I suffered from stomach pain. Almost vomited on my way to the restroom, I finally sustained through. Starting to realize that since there was little I can do to change and situation, the best option is to do my best to enjoy everyday free from pain.

Besides this, I actually got another job working online as an editor,a really low-paid job but one I really enjoyed. This is really a coincidence as I was searching for a good place for my Japanese study and found out about this opportunity. Luckily, it didn't start with a boring task but a requirement of a self-designed online English study program. The idea of sharing language tips in Desperate Housewives, a TV series I really like and watched for years, came into my mind instantly. I put that into practice and actually had another idea of sharing my blog stories, as a window to allow others a detailed glimpse of life abroad, and maybe a future potential for my vision as writer. Anyway, at least I was excited about all this. And I carried out my ideas during the last part of my vocation at bmp's place. Not many audiences so far- I am actually observing the number of audiences over the days, anxious for this number to grow, hoping that I can make a difference through doing things I love. 

When I combined this editor work and my new job together, life begins to hack me somehow. Every night after coming back from work and a simple dinner, I found myself updating the online program or preparing for that, plus I was so upset the first week that there was no web connection at my apartment. Inevitably, I got exhausted, found myself complaining to bmp or arguing with him just because of my bad mood. It was later that I realized that I should be grateful about this present life as I had almost everything I was hoping for months ago and the perfect time to strive for excellence. The solution is not impossible, just come up with a less time-consuming way of updating the online stuff and leave myself time to learn new things, even just a little bit every day. I will improve step by step.

I learned not to complain. Just find the solution and take action.

My friend, time becomes more limited now. I no longer have the luxury to think about my blog topic during a long train ride like when I was traveling home from college, maybe that's not a luxury, after all, the journey was long and tiresome. However, I will still write stories along the way.

Story will  never end. That's the fun part of life. Let's look forward to the future, together.
