career crossroads

i’ve been thinking about it for quite a long time… last night, i’ve made up my mind. i already know what i want. i have seen the light at the end of the tunnel.. 😉 hep hep, hooray!

i’ve been confused about the career path that i want to take. is it the academe,or the industry?

first, the academe…

this is not really my passion. this is not what i dreamt of. so if i follow steve jobs’ advice, not to settle..then i guess this is the wrong choice.

i like teaching, especially when i know i delivered a great performance (meaning, i’ve awed my audience – my students! 😉 i love it when i get to share my ideas and my learnings to my students. i love the interaction. i love their enthusiasm and most especially, i love learning (with and from them)

but i dont like the “other” functions of a teacher – that is, to check papers, prepare exams, compute grades, and most especially, having no choice but to FLUNK students…

maybe i could go back to this career when i get older.. when i no longer have the energy to
compete in the real world.. 🙂

and the industry..

yes, it’s a tough world out there where every man must struggle to prove himself. but hey, i just wanna take a shot at it. i don’t wanna die not knowing what it’s like to work out there. i don’t want to live a life full of regrets. i don’t want to give up on my dream…
