So the past three months is full of life updates. As you may have known, these updates include the change in family name, revision of life plans, addition of a new title, and lately, of getting a new job (though it is not a totally unfamiliar territory. I may say, it’s just a homecoming).
Some years before, I was eyeing the international scholarship, which also at some point, the reason I chose my master’s thesis. But yeah, life can go on a total turn. Somewhere between exploring my possible research choices and my full-length study, I was keen on doing a language analysis involving foreign men and Filipinas. A total turn of events. Two years prior to graduation, I have fallen in love. Three weeks after graduation, I married him.
Four years ago, I couldn’t think of anything else but going up the professional ladder. It was hardwork.
Then love came in and again it is hardwork. Not because I was forced or regretful but rather because I realized that along the way, I will have to give up, in total, the years of investment to getting where I am. Say what you want to say, but I am following my heart to where the tulips grow best. ❤
So, the past three months was a period of learnings, reflection and decisions. The plans were finally laid. The target is set. But, before I drop everything and fly to follow where my heart is, I am determined to get back to my favorite workspace. This time, with total transformation – new status, new family name, new title. Oh yeah, need I mention a new language?
Ah, truly, book is life.
For the next few months prior to departure, I will be Prof. M. ❤
Life can go on a total turn, but I am totally fine. ❤
Have you ever made a decision that changed your life in total? How did you face it?
