A Perfect Fit
The sound of the rain outside my bedroom window serves as a perfect encore of standing ovation on such a whirlwind day. I have just been given my notice for my employment with my alma mater.
A career shift to my once-desired-chosen-path actualized. A self-fulfilling prophecy. A dream come true.
Mom’s beside herself with joy. A couple of my former high school teachers are ecstatic. My friends are all excited.
So am I. I simply cannot explain the plethora of emotions coursing throughout my body with such a news. Suddenly, I feel inept. The insecurities I’ve had while still in school seem to wash over me. With five years of doing only HR work, detached from the academic world, how could I be competent in the development of young students? In addition, I have to finish my postgraduate studies in two years time.
Makes me think that I am way over my head. But then again, I’ve been wanting to pursue my masters degree for quite some time now, and this is the right push I’ve been needed. Though it seems more of a shove now.
It’s just amazing how life works out. I remember projecting to myself when I was still young that I’d like to finish my Master’s degree within two years and look at how fate decides. Funny, right?
Frankly, I’m a bit worried… and overwhelmed. Worried that I might not finish in two years my masteral and lose my job. (Quite a possibility too since last day of late enrolment for MA was today and I still need to take an Entrance Exam to check if I’d be qualified. I just hope I’ll pass the exams this coming Thursday, and that my new head would be kind enough to help me smooth over my late enrolment. I don’t think I can accomplish finishing my masters within a year and a half only.) And overwhelmed of the responsibilities my new job entails even when I haven’t started yet. It seemed so easy to theorize during the interview. The actuation process is the tricky part. Time to suit up!
Well.. I Won’t know until Monday on how this goes, but I’m wishing for the best!
I’m not perfect. But I hope to be a perfect fit in my new job.
