It’s been already 2 months since I graduated, can you believe that?
Now that I think about it, it seems like a really long time but it passed by really fast. So what did you do these past 2 months, Melisa?
Besides being completely obsessed with my health and food, I did nothing that in some way or another resembles work load. Yeah, I had to get a lot of bureaucratic things settled, like the unemployment benefits obligations and permanent residence stuff etc. But besides that, I honestly just enjoyed not doing anything at all and not feeling bad for it. I started seeing all my friends that I neglected the past few months due to thesis work. I embraced my freedom and had a lot of time to reflect on my life and the person I wanna be in the future.
If you would have asked me what I wanted to do back in January, I’d tell you 100% that I would get a corporate job as a data analyst or scientist and develop professionally in that role. But now that the time has come and I’ve been applying for these types of jobs, I really started asking myself if there is not more to it? It’s very discouraging to think about working from 8am-4pm for 5 days a week for the foreseeable future, no? Life after graduation is really deep, you guys?!
Mama’s gotta earn some cash somehow, so it’s a good place to start. I am burning for great marketing and data in relation to that. The appreciation I have for small details in marketing campaigns is unreal. Using data to optimize marketing campaigns is just my thing, alright?! So until I find a full time job that can satisfy this passion of mine, I will be doing exactly that on my own for my blog and my social media channels. Now that I finally have the time to fully dedicate my skills to it, I will work my ass off to earn some more money this way and see where this takes me. As for you, I think the best way to figure out what you want to do is actually after graduation. Use the free time to think and reflect, and let your mind take you places. What does your mind come circling back to? Choose that.
I like safety in life but sometimes we have to take some risks to experience the true happiness and freedom we desire. So let’s not just look forward to the weekend but to everyday, alright?
Thanks for stopping by again & blog to you soon!
