It Begins at the Ending

This is my first post. Hello. I have great plans for this blog but for now we shall start small and simple.

Tara and Me on Graduation Day

OSU Grad- Dec. 2009

I’m a recent grad and in this world of “recession” and “hard economic times” and all those other buzz words the news and car commercials throw at you, it’s hard to take it seriously when you’re a student. But once the excitement of graduation is gone you realize you’re in a weird limbo of not being a student and being a “post-grad” and then you final just come to the understanding that you’re unemployed. And being unemployed in these “hard economic times” is scary. And once out of college you realize, wow I have negative money. Meaning… my student loans and the money it cost to get a job or start a career puts you at negative.

Thank God for my mom. People out there, love your parents, even if they suck- but especially if they don’t, cause you don’t know how long you’ll have them and how much they real did for you. My mom immigrated to the US from the Philippines to find a better way of living and now in this twist of irony I’ll be emigrating out of this country that she came to so many years ago, to work in a country that is so close to her homeland I could swim to it (well I could swim it if I was Michael Phelps…)

Don’t just enjoy your time as a student, but enjoy your time all the time. When things get bad they can always get worst and when things are worst they can only get better. (I could work for Hallmark…)

Bottom line is not matter what your dreams are, how detailed you plan out your future, whether you’re 14 or 40, take things as they come, live in the moment and don’t feel bad if things don’t workout how you planned them, cause something better is bound to happen.
