Life Lately: First Week High

Life Lately: First Week High

This is the very first Life Lately post this 2017. I’ve actually missed writing personally. The feeling when you just want to write and share what transpired in your week. School resumed and the first week just ended. There were a lot of things that passed by and to tell you some, here’s the list of how life has been.

Life Lately: First Week High

It’s 2017 which means we have another year to use to fulfill our aspirations and goals. To be honest, it’s not that easy to do that especially if you don’t know where to start. For the younger ones, they’d usually start by listing down their goals by the end of a certain period or what they want to be when they grow up. But for the yuppies like me? How? Or for the more mature people out there who may feel a bit lost in their life, what do they do?

We think that we always have the time but we seldom maximize it. There are opportunities that knock on our doors but we choose to ignore it because it involves risk. And honestly, we just stick to what’s more comfortable. I’ve asked myself a lot of questions especially when it was enrollment day.

Is this really going to work?

You know what I answered to myself?

Yes, of course. Don’t get pressured or discouraged. Just do things slowly but surely.

That Week After Enrollment

It was the start of a new term. I was actually happy to be classmates with people I know. It makes recitation and going to class more fun. Now, who said it’s not going to be fun in post-grad?

  • This week was actually still fun because most of the professors were still not around. We were going to school to meet our classmates and get reacquainted again.
  • For once, I got my library card during the first day of the week. This usually does not happen but I don’t know what struck me. I felt that borrowing a book was a good sign. A sign that this term would be okay. This term would eventually be okay.
  • Being in school for five (5) days a week actually, prevents me from being lazy. Before, I only go to school for three (3) days a week because I had to still adjust my schedule. I tried to pursue gigs that would help me in my study.
  • Introducing yourself in class never gets old! I introduced myself as a freelance writer (and supposedly a freelance artist also but I got shy). I appreciate my professor for that. He recognizes that there are freelancers out there and must not be ridiculed. Well, I really don’t see myself working in an office while I’m pursuing my dream.
  • Thursdays and Sundays are my free days!
  • I have seen activities that are on my bucket list already and I just can’t wait to have the free time again and try those!
  • Another good thing was I was able to start saving again! I just hope this continues throughout the year.

Looking Forward To

This is a random part of my usual list but here goes:

  • I wish that the school would eventually hear out the voices of the students. Listening and working with us will eventually bring success somehow. Just don’t cut us out.
  • Good vibes for the whole term!

I guess that’s it for this post. That’s how the first week of the term went.

    I had a great first few weeks this 2017. First, I was able to write 6 blog posts! That’s quite a lot for me. I guess that’s part of my first month high! hahaha Second, I had a very productive month. I designed my own planning pages and made it available for sale in my online shop. I met with a new client and we’re about to close our transaction. I found 3 new venue sponsors for my upcoming talks/workshops! It’s simply an amazing and awesome month!

    I’m glad that you had the courage to introduce yourself as a freelance writer in class. 🙂 You should be proud of what you do. I’ll be speaking about freelancing as a work option for parents in April at the Hands-On Parents while Earning Summit. 🙂

    I’m sure that the next few months will be better and even more awesome. It’s only been a first few weeks and as they say, we attract what we give out so just keep giving out good vibes.

    School is fun so enjoy it. I like your perspective. Take it slow. But you should know where you are heading to. My comment here seems not applicable anymore as its already a month after start of your classes. Nonetheless, I still wish you good luck and happiness always.

      Hi Momi Berlin! Thank you for your kind words, however the school I’m in is really tough. Even if it’s already a month after the start, I still feel like I’m in vacation. Haha. <3
