I Wanna Be Like Kanye

Seeing that I picked a rather 'inspiring song' to open up my 2016 posts, allow me to express how inspired and enthusiastic I am for my plans for the rest of the year. This year's mantra is all about "achieving, succeeding, and conquering". I'm kicking off 2016 with photos taken last November wherein I attended my first official work-related event.

When New Year started, I didn't make any resolutions. There's no point in trying to come up with a list that I'll never see through until the end anyway. If I cannot even commit myself to a monthly ritual, how will I  commit to a change in any ritual at all? So, there. Scrap writing New Year's Resolutions. This transitory year is after all the year where I'm up for anything! So screw whatever will bring permanence and embrace all that promote the illusory grandeur. (Note that that's quite a rich statement coming from someone whose major decisions in life are still heavily reliant on her mother!)

If there's one thing that I like the most about my job, it's the fact that I get to talk and be exposed to people who come from all walks of life. One day I get to talk to someone whose achievements in life would inspire me so much so that it'll make me want to brave the vast ocean of opportunities and disappointments just like he did while on the following day, I'll be talking with someone who'll make my darker, condescending side excited. I keep on oscillating between being thirsty for more and grateful for my blessings.

That's our Ambassador behind me, by the way!

I'm quite happy and contented with where I am at the moment, work-wise. I have a good job - it requires for me to constantly think and act on my toes quickly, officemates who treat me as their equal despite being the youngest and newest hire for the past 3 years, applicants who clearly respect me despite looking and being so much younger than they are (although I'm aware that it's only due to the job title), and of course it's a job that pays my exorbitant bills (at least a quarter of it since my parents, aka the most generous persons in the world, "insist" on paying them). Again, I am quite happy and contented with my job, for now.

These photos were taken in Fairmont Hotel last November, during the celebration of the King's Day.
