Core Memories of 2015

Friday, January 1, 2016
Yesterday and the 364 days before that The year must have been so good that I could not remember those bad hair days every bad thing that had happened in 2015 was considered part of the entire plan set forth by the universe in 2014. Yes, if I had to rank my years since 2011, 2015---if not the best---is a year of core memories as Joy of Inside Out would gladly gather the happy balls and house them into the hub of my kolorful NCCC Headquarters joined by the rest of personified emotions---Sadness, Fear, Disgust and Anger.

While the first quarter was mostly spent on convincing people to help me accomplish that not part of their job questionnaire completing my Masters degree requirements, I would specifically not forget my 26th birthday when I had almost celebrated it just like getting through the regular workday…but my family made an effort to render the day extra special with their spontaneous presence just 4 hours away to March 19th.

And yes… finally…after four grueling years as I would normally say back in the high school or college final days a comma and three letters have been appended to my registered domain name, being conferred with a Master of Business Administration degree in April 2015. Academically, that was one full achievement unlocked for years through proper motivation and excellence---which there were no equivalent efforts made from past endeavors. It was quite an attempt to gracefully end what I started in 2011 that it had been a primary root cause for several and big purposeful mistakes and decision errors big career decisions from first resignation to employment hopping applications. Anyhow, all those had paid off well with my family so proud of me and of course, with my sister who likewise graduated with Master of English and Applied Linguistic (MEAL) degree, beating me with one letter for which we entirely dedicated to the true MASTERS of love---our parents.

A year is not as memorable as it is without experiencing plot twists and plot holes lows and challenging circumstances I would never trade for the exact opposite as those served as reference to this year’s another set of challenges. I am somewhat grateful to experience emotional rollercoaster at the workplace for it helped me review my resume that has not been updated for the past 4 years revisit my career goals and assess what truly motivates me to stay in an organization. While the process affected me at various levels, I have been prompted to deliver more valuable results. In fact, the “fear” that was previously felt has been channeled to “excitement”. I am looking forward to a year full of new lessons and knowledge upgrades, ultimately sustaining personal career development I have been taking care of for years.

But 2015 was also an opportunity to take new road---a rare attempt to take new field. However challenging and great it is to achieve, I have conceded to the wishful thinking that it could have played out well in parallel timeline and my decision to discontinue my CPA ambitious hopes was a good decision after all. That was one semester worth keeping which provided me a tip on how to initiate or keep up on a conversation with a CPA holder---that he is.

Meanwhile, the year was of course, fully felt with the presence of best friends, new colleagues, one of them turned out to be so special, the one who would deeply mattersole un-friendship on multiple instances and few acquaintances.

2015 was a moment to experience the most memorable and fun travel with Ilocos escapade and Coron adventure and sweet holiday vacations.

It is the year to encounter new angels giving a glimpse of joy to meet my future angel and witness true love from the weddings of closest friends sending me a strong signal for that only love coming on his way.

Actually, he was not on his way, he arrived perfectly… And that how 2015 ended on a high and happy note. LOVE.

Thank you Lord and the Universe for making time a wonderful instrument to experience Your greatness. 

2016, I shall upgrade the hub and store it with brand new set of core memories. J
