I pretty much wasted my 20s away, career-wise. I traded a promising job in a company which manufactures hard drives for the skyscrapers of Ayala Avenue. I hopped from one job to the next, seeking a better pay but not providing career advancement opportunities (read: promotion) for myself. I didn’t set any goals. I wasn’t a go-getter. I was, in retrospect, burnt-out. Parang napagod ako sa kahahabol sa mga goals nung ako kay nag-aaral pa.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about those “wasted” years and vowed to make something out of my life now that I’m in my 30s. To start with, I’m contemplating of leaving IT and returning to engineering. I have contacted an uncle who could hopefully help me seek a job overseas as an engineer. If that doesn’t work out, I might try working on a cruise ship.
I’m done being the lackadaisical scud. It’s time to get into the groove. The return of the comeback.
Wish me luck.
