Nevertheless, this pandemic broke us so we may be transformed. Little did we know, we were changing for the better albeit slowly. Even in the harshest conditions, there is a comforting prospect waiting for you to notice it. At first, I thought everything was going south and there’s no point to reach my dreams at all, but I was wrong. I was too naïve to realize that this tragedy is a painful yet necessary encounter to clear the obstructions along the way. It had to happen so I could gain insights from this experience that I wouldn’t have gotten elsewhere. It reminded me that this life is transient, so I must make the most of this borrowed time.
Being an influencer/blogger/content creator/freelance writer is a novel career path to pursue. It’s a job that only existed recently, and despite its lucrative ways of earning money, is still being frowned upon by many. Producing unique, helpful content for anyone’s disposal is unfortunately branded as NOT a “real, serious, or sustainable form of livelihood.” Having this tarnished reputation and stigma on the blogging industry puts a heavier burden on any blogger as if the entire process isn’t already hard enough. Aside from the struggle of proving the world wrong, the majority of new bloggers quit before six months because they don’t find joy in what they’re doing.
Picking the wrong college course is a common mistake among students. In every student’s life, having to choose which degree program to study is one of the hardest decisions one has to make (especially if your options are limited). Since high school, we are asked about our plans in college and the same people passively pressure us about the likelihood of us failing and shifting if we continue to ignore their questions.
We are told about the possible hardships and lessons we’ll take when we mention a degree program of our choice and leave us discouraged. In return, they suggest a different one they think is best for us.
Money can mean differently to lots of people. Some consider money as the determinant of success or the end goal of hard work. Some consider money as merely one of the benefits of success, and that monetary incentives shouldn’t be your only motivation. Some might see money as something important, but not as important as time and energy (in other words, they’re willing to overspend to take advantage of the luxury of time they have).
