Since the market is quiet by this time, and we don't have internet connection, I will try to make an article, about on how my childhood dream became the dream that I am pursuing right now.
Since when I am a child or when we were a child, our parents will keep asking us "what we want to be when we grew up". So as what I always heard from them that engineers is one of the professions that offer a high salary. Then I always tell them that I want to be an engineer. So as a child I don't really know how hard was the responsibilities of an engineer. I remember how happy I am when wearing the hard hat of my uncle who attempts to finish engineering but he didn't make it due to poverty (may his soul rest in peace), I really think that I will be an engineer someday.
But, as I get old and get to know the reality, I start to think if I am going to pursue engineering courses upon knowing the real job of an engineer, and how difficult the way that I need to pass through before to be an engineer. I am hesitant so I have my second choice which is to be an accountant. Yeah, I love math over any subjects that's why I like the courses that have mathematics in the curriculum.
From elementary into junior high school, my teacher in mathematic know me as a responsive student in class, since I am really interested in the lesson, but I am not "pabibo" HAHA. As what I told earlier that I am hesitant to take engineering and has my second choice to take which is accountancy. Unfortunately, when I am to enter senior high school, I need to choose a strand, choices are STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), ABM (Accountancy, Business & Management), HUMMS (Humanities and Social Sciences), and GAS (General Academic Strand).
As you can see, engineering and accountancy differs in strand, so I need to choose one. So my decision is my first choice which is the engineering, I am afraid that time. Since senior high school, I am not that active in class. Even if I know the answer, I am not answering until the professor called me. I became afraid because I am transferred into other school, where students are intelligent. I don't want to compete so I just lowkey sitting and listening to the interaction of the professor and my classmates. I used to that kind of situation, that's why I brought it into college HAHAHA. On graduation, fortunately with that kind of attitude I still be able to graduate as with honor.
College time, the most difficult stage before I obtain my childhood dream. This time I need to choose the major engineering course I will pursue. Since I don't really what major I want to, I asked my parents and cousins. Upon surveying, I decided to choose Petroleum Engineering as my major. I expect too many math subjects, and I know I will enjoy it HAHAHA may lakas na ng loob. So fortunately, from first year up to present, I am a regular student that had a grade of two 3.00 and no 1.00 HAHAHA so mostly my grades was 2 point something, unless it is math/calculus.
At present I am a fourth year Petroleum Student, I am hoping to graduate on time but I think thesis will not let it happen HAHAHA. So that's all. I hope all the students who read this, will passed this semester and the following.
Thank you for reading! I hope you read my next articles! I love you all, guys. God bless us all.
