10 Things I Hate About You Moment.

You know the part where Julia Stiles starts screaming up and down when she got her acceptance to Sarah Lawrence?

And she screams:


Well that's exactly how i'm feeling!

Yeahhooo!!! I'm in the January intake!

I just sent in some documents earlier today and i had this moment of clarity.

Like its all coming true!

My plans took a long detour

A 7 year detour to be exact.

But thats the way it has all unfolded.

And i'm really happy that im finally at this point in my life.

At one point i really thought i was going to become a doctor.


Like a real medical doctor specialising in Gynaecology

But then when i started getting crap maths results i knew it really wasnt a calling.

And then teaching came along.

It was an exciting prospect.

I guess the reason why i was such a big suck up to my teachers was because i really appreciated how much they did for me.

sans one teacher who i STILL despise & loathe until today.

I guess i realised this early on.

And i think it helped in my choice of profession.

To some, a job is just a job but i think there's much more to it.

Have you ever just sat down and pondered WHAT you were going to do with your life?

What YOUR contribution to society would be?

Okay maybe im a freak having thought about that at age 16

But really, it helped.

I know some people are going through a transition in their lives at the moment.

I think the ONLY thing you will be happy doing would be to do something you were so called, pre-programmed to do.

Sometimes the job you ARE doing MIGHT be the thing that you were meant to do.

Its not an easy path for anyone.

It comes as a realisation as some might say.

So take your time.

Think carefully about it.

Like what they say,

If you enjoy what you do, you'll never work a day in your life.
