Thoughts of a Graduating Student

 

After three years of journeying through the rough roads of college education, I’ve finally made it to my graduating year. It was not easy getting here but the journey was fun though.

I still remember myself entering the portals of Ateneo De Zamboanga University for the first time.  I was so young, innocent and vulnerable back then. At one point, I felt like turning back.  I was unsure of who I really am and what I wanted to become and until now, I am afraid that I still am.

In just a few months, I would officially become a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication. Well, I am not sure of that yet but I hope so. As the months go by, there are lots of things going on in my mind and I’d like to share some of them with you.

What will I do after graduation? Seriously, I don’t know. I know I am telling everyone that I’m going to take up law but I’m still unsure about it until now.  I don’t see anything wrong with wanting to be a lawyer. I’m just worried that this thing might not fit my personality. I would love to put a title to my name. I mean, who wouldn’t want to , right? I’m also interested in legislations and laws. I’m sure about that because I loved our Political Science 101 class. I’d love to become a lawyer but I can’t explain why there is something inside me that says I’m called for something else. After all, I am a writer. I want to be a writer. Should I focus on being a writer instead?

 

I know you can see how  cluttered my mind is by now.

Do I need to earn a Master’s degree?  My hunger for education won’t stop when I graduate Mass Communication. I’m thinking of taking up a master’s in Journalism or anything that is related to Communication.  So, my mind is going crazy again now and I am now confused if I’ll take up law or earn a master’s degree in Communication instead. What do I really want? I have roughly six months to think about that.

Where would I work? Will I work in daytime and study at night? Should I enrol in an online class? I don’t know. I would love to work in a magazine production company i.e. Summit Media.  I would love to work in a Public Relations firm also.

 

I am feeling a lot better now after sharing my thoughts to you. Do you realized  how confused I am?  I hope that in six months ,  I would be able to organize my cluttered mind and figure this all now. Right now, I have to focus on earning my grades so I could graduate as expected.

Let the Blogging Begin

So here it is.  I know this is already the nth time I attempted to create a blog site and screwed it all up but I promise this is going to be the last one.  I have this sickness that most of us have. I have a short attention span which means I may not be interested in things a day after I am obsessed about it. Right now, I am determined to update this blog and make it last. I hope this interest stays. I pray that it will.

Why “Vista”?

We all have different outlooks about life. We all have a different vista. I want to share my vista with you guys. I want to voice out what I feel and what I think about life.  Many of us live our lives everyday without even expressing what we truly feel. I believe that each one of us have the right to voice out their opinions and their perspective on things.  I don’t want to die one day without even having the chance to say what I feel. That’s too tragic to think about.

When I was in highschool , I always stayed below the radar. I didn’t even have a say on things. It’s not that I was dumb or something, I just chose to live that way. I left the school without even leaving my mark and that is one thing I will regret for the rest of my life. It was only when I became a Mass Communication student that I realized the importance of communicating and speaking out.  It was also during this time that I became aware of the world around me. I became mindful of the different issues in the real world.  Not only that, I also realized that life is a very complex but interesting thing and that life and it’s issues are worth blogging about. If there is one thing I am sure of at this point in time, it’s the fact that the whole world is not in harmony  specially when it becomes to viewpoints or perspectives.

As a Mass Communicator, I have my own perspective of things. I have my own point of view.   Through this blog, I hope I would be able to share with you my outlook about life. Whether you like it or not, I will. So let the blogging begin.
