I may have lived half of my life already. That's okay, I'm happy though. I may not have achieved much in life, no big achievements to be proud of but I'm happy that I somehow been through different experiences. These may not be extraordinary experiences but I'm happy because I keep on learning and I keep on meeting new acquaintances and friends. If I'm gonna die right now, I think I will not feel that bad (but it still scares me thinking about my body being buried...that kind of thing...ha ha). Sure there are still so many things that I want to do, places that I want to see, words that I want to hear and say, feelings that I want to show and feel, strangers that I want to be friends with, experiences that I want to experience, roads that I want to travel, songs that I want to hear, and surely I still have a long list of things-I-want-to-do. So what I'm saying is, it is important that I am happy with what I have right now (though it may not be something big or fancy). I'm happy with the feeling that I get from people around me - my family, my friends, and even those people whom I'm just starting to get to know. And so I guess my life is not that bad after all. It may just look plain and simple, which most probably is but having a good disposition helps.

- My fear... I'm scared of getting old because everytime a year added to my life, I feel like lesser opportunities are in store for me. I don't know. I just feel that way.

 -I'm not ready... This may sound silly but I'm not ready yet to just stay in a certain job for good. I'm not ready yet to do this job for the rest of my life. I feel that there are still so many things that I want to give a try. New job that I want to learn. See, this is like my third job already (without counting the one that I had back in October wherein I just stayed there for 2 weeks)

-My jobs back then and now...

* I first worked as a call center agent. I had good days, bad days, and dragging-myself-to-work-moments. I knew I wanted this job because that was what I planned of getting into first. But I didn't last that long in that job. Maybe it was because it's my first job and I was still like getting used to the reality of life. But anyway, I could say I did my job well then.

 * When I saw the ad on the newspaper, I knew right away that I would love the job. And honestly I did. So I worked as an online tutor. It was fun and I could say it's one of the most interesting jobs. So I stayed for a couple of years. It was a wonderful experience especially because I felt that I was making a difference in my students' life. I know that somehow, some of them would still remember me. They may forget my name but I know they would still remember the classes that we once had. I even still have a student who sends me snail mails. It always makes me feel good that some of them still remember me. I tutored Korean students by the way. It's fun and I learned something about their culture and even made friends with some of them. And best of all, it is there where I met great friends. I'll always be thankful and glad for that. I had great and happy memories there too.

* When I got myself into this job, it was just like more of a trial. I never really thought that I would love the job and so the result was just a 2-week stay there. I didn't even finish my training there, which is for a month. I stayed for 2 weeks and quitted. It's a sort of an SEO thing. I still think it's a good job and a challenging one but for some reasons I had to quit.

 * And now, I just finished my first week of training as a conversion agent. So what do I exactly do? I'll tell you once I passed the training...ha ha I still have another week of training. But so far I'm liking it. It's going to be a new experience for me. I like the people there. They seem nice so far. And the place is fine. Not too fancy but it's perfectly good. And yes, the people are nice and so are the trainers.

 So that's my life so far... Maybe after all it's not that bad...
