MLM: College Graduation




College graduation always reminds me two things; the first one, it is one of my memorable graduations because my mom was there and I don’t have to ask my aunt to attend my graduation and of course my ex-boyfriend now hubby was also present.



College graduation also reminds me of my hopes and dreams that I did not pursue. I’m a frustrated flight attendant because I really want to travel so whenever I apply for college I only have two choices, either Tourism or Business course. When I learned that I pass in both courses I was torn because I have to choose but I realized that God did not bless me with height so I enrolled in College of Commerce. I graduated from UST with a degree in Commerce major in Business Administration.

I’ve worked for five years before I became a full time mom, this is not part of my plan and I would lie if I'll tell you that I do not miss working because there are moments that I’m thinking what if I did not resign? But whenever I see my son, I know I made the right choice, being with him 24/7 is already a blessing. I’m travelling a different path now because I choose a job that I love, so I will never have to work a day in my life." – Confucius

“As much as you want to plan your life, it has a way of surprising you with unexpected things that will make you happier than you originally planned. That’s what you call God’s will”


Congratulations to batch 2012!

  1. Time seems to pass by so fast. It's graduation month already. :) I agree with the last quote that sometimes there are surprises in life. God will always guide us to the right path.

    Btw, just realized something. Is your mom Ms. Joy of Joy's Notepad? :)

  3. The last quote inspires me a lot since I'm also torn between pursuing my profession or just starting my own business. Puede ko bang hiramin yang quote na yan? LOL

  4. I am really proud of you. It was a memorable moment for me to be with you in your graduation day. You did it well although you grow up apart from me. And it is the nicest thing you can do. Be with your son as he grows up.

  7. I remember the day I also graduated in college and it stirs my emotion. I believe our destiny today is not an accident. God really has a plan. My job today is a work I never imagined that I will be doing but now I'm here. I am waiting for the greatest plans of God to my life!
