Girl Meets World

Saturday, September 05, 2015

They say, when you start working straight from college (I mean really straight), everything will go on and on and on... and on. You will not gonna experience so many things that your college buddies who chose to take a time off first before working. 

That sun-kissed tan from the beach... that DIY workshop you've been wanting to attend to... that "me time" somewhere while reading a good book... or those days spending for your blog. Oh man, you're gonna miss these so bad.


When I was in college, I had the urge in my vein to work already after I stepped on that center stage. And fortunately, I was offered immediately, even before I graduate, to work in a prestigious company that everybody (okay, most) in my field dreams of.

On my first day, I was this excited girl who can't wait to see her own desk and meet new people from a not-so-strange environment. First few weeks has gone by so fast. But the succeeding weeks, the demanding schedule and tasks followed me. I realized, what people keeps saying about working after college is true. Once you're trapped in your chair and computer, you no longer have the time to do the things you want like before. No time excuse has become my usual line whenever I'm asked to hang out.
Heck it's hard to work.


I've been in this stage where I really want to stop for a moment and... go home. Every time I tell this to people, they always advise me to take a break. It sounds easy but it's really hard to do. Knowing that our schedule should be flexible and we're not tied to a strict Monday to Friday, 8:00AM to 5:00PM, our work really demands us to be in the office 24/7. I am not overreacting. Literally, 24/7. And I know that. Life in Media is very demanding and most of the time, exhausting. #TheTruthAboutOurWork



Although it's not easy for me to juggle every single day away from my family and the things I love, at the end of the day, there is something that is pulling me to stay still. My dreams. My goals.

Whenever I feel down and unmotivated, I always keep myself thinking what led me here and followed by why am I here. My dreams and goals keep me going through that tiny hole of the needle. And even if it's really hard, I have to be strong and positive to keep going.


I have to work hard to play hard. I know it's hard at first but eventually, everything will pay off.
No one made a difference by staying in their comfort zone.


The girl once said hi to the world,
It asked her,
Was it nice to meet me?
She answered,
Of course! I'm so glad to meet you!

  2. I'm scared that I'm going to let my supposed career dreams overtake my life, and when I grow up I'll be tied down immediately after already wasting a considerable proportion of my life away studying. It's good to be ambitious, but lately I've been wondering if that whole self-discovery period is necessary too. Or maybe we're always going through self discovery. When I talked to my mum about this, she told me that some people don't work full time but take 3 months of the year off or something of the sort. I really like that idea - because it means making a living as well as doing something you love in your spare time, which could simply be doing nothing, or blogging, or travelling. The only problem is, does that make you successful? And without success what is your self worth?

    1. It's really scary to think about the future. We want to achieve and do so many things and think that by doing so will make us successful and happy. Your mom's idea is great but if you think of it, will you really leave that current job without assurance or any possibilities of getting back there or finding a new job, just to take some time off? That's the question I've been asking myself whenever I think of taking a break from work. Because seriously, it's really hard to find a job nowadays. Maybe when the time comes that I get to fulfill what I NEED and what I WANT, that's the time I'll be taking a break. But to being successful, it's not just all about achieving everything. We are more successful than we think we are. Trust me! :)

  42. I can imagine it's hard to go to work immediately after graduating. I know it's something I don't want to do in the future - but it's so easy. Traveling seems great but it's just so common to go on and on and on in life - it's so hard to stand still and realize that you also need some time for yourself. I can totally relate. And what a wonderful title for this article, by the way. X
