Girl Meets World

They say, when you start working straight from college (I mean really straight), everything will go on and on and on… and on. You will not gonna experience so many things that your college buddies who chose to take a time off first before working.
That sun-kissed tan from the beach… that DIY workshop you’ve been wanting to attend to… that “me time” somewhere while reading a good book… or those days spending for your blog. Oh man, you’re gonna miss these so bad.
When I was in college, I had the urge in my vein to work already after I stepped on that center stage. And fortunately, I was offered immediately, even before I graduate, to work in a prestigious company that everybody (okay, most) in my field dreams of.
On my first day, I was this excited girl who can’t wait to see her own desk and meet new people from a not-so-strange environment. First few weeks has gone by so fast. But the succeeding weeks, the demanding schedule and tasks followed me. I realized, what people keeps saying about working after college is true. Once you’re trapped in your chair and computer, you no longer have the time to do the things you want like before. No time excuse has become my usual line whenever I’m asked to hang out.
I’ve been in this stage where I really want to stop for a moment and… go home. Every time I tell this to people, they always advise me to take a break. It sounds easy but it’s really hard to do. Knowing that our schedule should be flexible and we’re not tied to a strict Monday to Friday, 8:00AM to 5:00PM, our work really demands us to be in the office 24/7. I am not overreacting. Literally, 24/7. And I know that. Life in Media is very demanding and most of the time, exhausting. #TheTruthAboutOurWork
Although it’s not easy for me to juggle every single day away from my family and the things I love, at the end of the day, there is something that is pulling me to stay still. My dreams. My goals.
Whenever I feel down and unmotivated, I always keep myself thinking what led me here and followed by why am I here. My dreams and goals keep me going through that tiny hole of the needle. And even if it’s really hard, I have to be strong and positive to keep going.
I have to work hard to play hard. I know it’s hard at first but eventually, everything will pay off.
No one made a difference by staying in their comfort zone.
The girl once said hi to the world,
It asked her,
Was it nice to meet me?
She answered,
Of course! I’m so glad to meet you!

GIRL Team

I always say that when I finish college, I want to work for a magazine. As time passes, my dreams and goals are changing— although the part of being a writer is still there— because I think that I have a purpose why I’m pursuing it. Now, my dream is to influence people, young girls specifically, and change the world (please don’t laugh at me) through my writings.

I was so excited when asked to form my dream team to push that goal. I want a team that is very creative and influential for the youth to be inspired. I want a team that’s not satisfied with just “okay”. And I think, our team will be a success. Behold, the GIRL Team.

Our team’s name stands for:

Giving

Inspirations,

Rebuilding

Lives of others


mission

To tie our creative minds together to empower the youth.

To embrace the world and paint it with optimism.

I’d like you to meet the members of the G.I.R.L. Team, thus, my dream team:

1. Marla Miniano

Hold on. I have a daydream to catch up. Who wouldn’t want to work with her? The first time I met her for an interview, I told myself that “this is what I want” and “I want to be like her”. I want to work with her because she’s kind, approachable, and an awesome Editor-in-Chief. Who would have thought that there’s a sweet EIC in this world? Plus, she’s pretty, too!

2. Tiny Cooper

He’s cute, incredible, awesome, and hilarious guy. I mean gay. I love to work with him because he’s the kind of friend that will never leave you and he always aims for the best. Plus, he never fails to make me laugh. By the way, he’s from the book Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

3. Ana

She’s my best friend since I enter my first year in college. I want to work with her because I know that we have the same dream. She has always been there for me when I need her, minsan pa nga kahit ‘di ko kailangan. Too kind and too generous for me. Hahaha. She’s a bit lazy and clumsy at times, still, I want her to be part of my dream team.

Together, we will change the world and make it a better place.
