2012 was an interesting year for me. For one, I got my first real job (9-6!) at ABS-CBN; it was pretty crazy. ABS-CBN was honestly one of the last places I thought I would ever work, but I ended up enjoying myself a lot. I met a lot of people and rubbed elbows with supervisors, managers, department heads and executives. It was hard, but worth it.
I also applied for post graduate studies at Ateneo, to specialize in Counseling Psych. I passed. (YAY) After saving some money, I decided to resign from my job in order to pursue my studies full time.
When I look back on 2012, I see it as the year that I worked. There were times that I didn’t work as well as I should have, and there were times that I worked until I felt like crying. I worked, to earn money, and to save it. The feeling of being so controlled by my need and want for money made 2012 a tiring year. But this made me realize a lot of things, such as living within my means, saving responsibly and understanding the work needed in order to achieve the lifestyle that I wanted.
2012 was a year of lessons; lessons and experiences that I know will stick with me into the new year.
