    “Why did you switch to Social Work?”

    This is a common question posed to me when I attend job interviews, or generally being asked upon learning of my occupation. The question itself ain’t offensive, I guess it evokes a sense of curiousness (if you know of my previous jobs).

    While most people are partying or feasting the last night of 2012 away, I went to bed early instead. I know, like no life right? Rather, I made the choice to get a good night’s rest instead, and wake up to a brand new year…

    I’ve no new year resolutions to make, for I know I will break them as soon as its been made.

    I’m looking forward to what this year may bring, and hoping for the best possible year yet.

    May your 2013 be awesome, and God bless!

    Its been a while since I last wrote in or check back this blog. Don’t worry, I have not forsaken it at all… its just that I’ve been occupied with loads of activities to do, and it takes me away from the computer most of the time.

    Lately, many thoughts surfaced, some of which are pleasant, while others served to be being destructive to my soul. As they say, shit happens, and its on some of these days where it becomes a little harder to rein in those thoughts and have it dumped somewhere else.

    I don’t know where to begin looking at the long and tough journey that I been through, much less pen it down on this blog. Though this deed has to be done someday, somehow because it is what I went through, and no amount of intended forgetfulness would drown this memory into the depths of a black hole.

    I have many to thank… to God, Family, Boyfriend, Friends… for they have been understanding, caring, loving and always looking out for me. It would have been way tougher without them.

    At times, its overwhelming to handle all that load of emotions, but on the flip side, it tells me that I’m being only human, and experiencing a whole spectrum of emotions may not always be a bad thing, at least, I would understand and experience what it feels like, and how I’m reacting to it. At the end of it, I walk out knowing myself a little better each time.

    Each time, I look at the skies and smiled. Sounds crazy? Perhaps. That’s just me – giving my thanks silently to Him.

    A career switch isn’t an easy decision to make, and there are always room to ponder all the “what-ifs”. Then again, if one doesn’t take the risk and head into the unknown, one will never know if the switch is a hit or a miss.

    Yes, like many others, I too, decided to leave the IT industry, where I spent the last 10 years of my life studying IT and obtaining academic qualifications that was supposed to be my ticket to a career in IT after University. Sadly, after a year plus, I started feeling jaded. Even more so after two years, where I am totally convinced I’ve reach a stage of stagnation in my career.

    When that happened, it left me in a state of disillusion as well as the struggle of having to stay or to go. There were also bread and butter issues to consider. For a recent graduate into the first job, there are always many first time experiences one has to go through.

    Example: Submitting the first resignation letter, serving notice, and making the transition to the next job. Loads of jitters and stress in the process.

    Its quite an experience for me, as a first timer, and I am glad that things went pretty well for me, with hiccups here and there. But hey, life’s not a bed of roses… so yeah. :P

    There is no such thing as the right time to leave an industry, but the door of opportunity came when something I really wanted came along… and I decided to take the plunge and try it out. After all, one’s degree do not necessarily dictates staying and slogging in the said industry. I always am believer of being happy, in almost everything, including career. If one is unhappy, no amount of money earned can alleviate the unhappiness. Money don’t buy happiness, though it can buy the things you want.

    Sometimes I simply don’t know what to do,
    Nor simply don’t know what to say.

    Sometimes I stand at crossroads,
    Wondering which path should I take.

    Sometimes I look at the marvels of nature,
    And wonder what wrong has man done.

    Sometimes I wish I could reach out to you,
    Only to be hurt by the harsh words that you speak.

    Sometimes I want to do something to make a difference,
    But is it too late to do it?
