Since Last July

Hi WordPress. It’s been a while. How are you? I’m doing well. Experiencing 50 hour work weeks but at the age of 22, that should be the norm right? Work while you got the stamina before your body says no more, right? Coffee has become my ally to keep nice and perky all day, but sometimes even that works against me. My body tells me “Go To BED!!! Get Some SLEEP!!” throughout most of the day but I’ve learned to ignore that and power through.

I’m still searching for my career path. I have so much to offer and I want to learn so much. Who is going to give me that chance to prove myself worthy for their business? It’s unnerving to think about the competition that may be out there. But you know, there’s always going to be someone that is more credible, and those who fall short. I do my best on each and every interview I go on and show them what I have to offer.

I’ve been interning with Hawaii Business Magazine for the past couple of months and it’s been great. I actually learned that I love working in an office environment where there are many sources for me to use and people to connect with. Unfortunately, my time here ends in a couple weeks so I better soak up all I can get from the people I admire.

I’m not sure why I worry so much about my future at 22. I always viewed myself as more mature than most people my age. I want a career, I want that salary, I want a routine schedule. To some, that may sound boring but to me it’s a relief. A relief to know where I’ll be each day, how much I’ll be paid, what I’ll be doing for the next few years or possibly for the rest of my life. It’s great to have someone under my belt and not have to rely on freelance. I’m ready for that real life job, those real life experience that I so long for. As long as I am meeting people who are positive and are willing to be patient with me and other new comers, I will love coming to work. I just have to keep searching, I suppose. Who is going to give me my chance in the corporate realm of communications? We shall see…soon, I hope.

I know I have the commitment and dedication. I just need a chance. People say I have a bright future ahead of me, I hope they’re right. All I can do is keep a positive mind, send good energy and the right position will come.
