If You Leave

few weeks ago, i talked to my husband and told him that i’m contemplating of leaving the IT industry for good. up to this day, working for almost 10 years now, i still haven’t found my passion for this industry and more of like a survival thing every day. you go to work, sitting for 8 hours and finishing your task, waiting for the clock so you can grab your belongings and heading out to the nearest door. it was like that for 10 years. fortunately, i was able to find good employers and also passed certification exams required for my career. but deep into my core, i feel empty and want something more meaningful.

i was thinking of switching to another job, perhaps after i get my citizenship here. guess what? i’m thinking of joining the police force, be a constable and climbing my way to the top so i can be a dog handler inside the airport or chasing robbers in the street. bad ass!

what makes me stay in my current job and industry is that it’s financially rewarding and we are planning to build a house soon, so every dollar counts. also, one of the basic requirements in joining the police force is that i should be at least holding a restricted driving license. i’m just on my learners! but we will get there soon. 😉

sick and tired of sitting at work, just makes my hips bigger and me fatter. so i want something challenging, exciting and touching people’s lives (mehganoun) so yeah, keeping my fingers, legs and toes crossed that i will become a constable officer in the near future. taray nu teh!

Weekly Photo Challenge: (Extra)ordinary

i took this photo a year ago while on vacation at our home in manila. we have a small garden at home and was surprised to see that a nest was built on one of the shrubs. i was more surprised to see that the secret eggs were finally hatched and there were new tiny birds inside. it feels surreal to see it up-close and within reach. i leave them in peace, i was scared that the momma bird will attack me and peck on my face. haha! 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place

this is godley head walking track, my new-found happy place for walking and hiking. the place provides a scenic view of taylor’s mistake beach, lyttelton harbor and the vastness of the pacific ocean. i’m so loving christchurch that i can’t imagine myself relocating to a more urbanized place anymore. we may not have the big shopping malls and restaurants here, but we’ve got lots of beautiful scenery to enjoy. going to the beach, hills and winery is easy peasy because it’s within the city!
