Acerca de mí

I'm currently a full time job seeker. I realize now that I chose to become a college/university student for the wrong reasons. I didn't have a clear purpose for enrolling in my degree, and having to work so hard for so long (plus the university fees) forced me to seriously question why I had to push myself so much. After the 4th week of semester 2, I finally decided to defer with practically no intention of returning. I still haven't officially dropped out.

From this experience I learnt an important lesson. Before enrolling in a course, one must decide what sort of career/lifestyle they most want to attain (the clearer the better), then determine the steps necessary to make it a reality. I did this the other way around and suffered greatly as a result. This may seem like common sense, but it took me about 6 months to figure this out.

As a university student, I gained about 6 kilos and possibly developed depression. Red spots formed on my arms from prolonged anxiety in the first 2 weeks of semester 1 (they looked like mosquito bites), and I left many of my practical sessions frustrated and deeply disappointed in myself. I tried my very best but I only managed to pass 1 out of 3 units. This left me feeling constantly bitter and disorientated for several months after deferring.

This year, I aim to get a full time job (doing just about anything) and a drivers license. I've regained confidence in myself and I'm a lot happier and healthier. University/college was a highly unpleasant but valuable experience, but I won't return unless I'm well prepared and need a certain degree for a particular job/career.

Krakolio (Hace 6 meses) #16706723It might be a bit late, but happy birthday!Thanks very much for the Birthday wishes! A bit early as it's still December 10 where I'm at. The international dateline puts you among the first to comment for my Birthday. Hope your employment situation improves; it's tough to be a figure collector this time of year with little income.

Krakolio (hace 1 año) #11080452That's an amazing room. It looks like part of an art exhibit with a bed in the middle of it.

Thanks, Krakolio; the credit goes to Rejean 235. Do check out his profile and collection. Ken
