When I was still a college student, I've always wanted to move out of the province and work in Manila. I didn't really know where or when but it has always been the dream. My fascination and curiosity pushed me to strive harder to achieve that goal. I've always believed that I would be able to maximize my potential in that kind of environment. Where everything's new and different from what I'm used to and that just makes me feel like I finally have a clean slate to prove myself. And Just recently, I've had the opportunity to fulfill that dream.
I was looking for a job that would fit perfectly with my plans of building a career in Marketing, and fortunately, I was offered one in the heart of BGC. Imagine the joy I felt when I read that email. I immediately made calls to arrange my accommodation and planned everything out. I thought maybe, this is my chance to finally be out of my comfort zone and embrace my independence. I moved from our house in a nearby province to a skyscraper in Taguig City. The difference is remarkable. I was excited, nervous and ecstatic all at the same time. I didn't know a person could feel that all at once. It was definitely a first!
I never thought I'd like waking up with the sun peeking through the curtains of the room. I guess living in the city is transforming me into a morning person. What I love most about living and working in BGC is the fact that I can wake up and won't have to rush to work. I can take my time in getting ready and prepare my mind for the day ahead. It's such a nice treat to also be able to walk to the office and not have to worry about traffic or parking. And after work, I can even walk home slower and appreciate my surroundings. I haven't actually explored everything there is to see in this city and I am looking forward to do that in the coming months. There is absolutely no reason to complain. I finally get to live the long time dream and to actually enjoy what I do for a living, it's truly a blessing. And I am extremely grateful.
