A few months before, I had faced the situation of asking myself where I would go after college. Going back to the university where I graduated from to teach and train other mass communication students became an option. Later on, I met a good opportunity along the way which made me realize teaching was not the path I wanted to take.
Well, there were two opportunities actually. They were both so good they made me feel as if I were the luckiest man alive. One was a ride along a shortcut route (somehow) to my ultimate dream; the other was another ride (a rough one) leading to multiple forks where many uncertainties come waiting (whoa, don’t get me wrong, boss).
Many would think I went for the obvious, taking the shortcut to the mainstream media. It’s not really a big jump to the big fish, but at least, had I grabbed that, I would be part of the big fish. I guess the only uncertainty I would encounter would be, “When will I be one of the giants?”
Heck, no. The news is I didn’t go for that. For several years of training, I had developed myself to be adventurous and exploratory, traits I injected into my personality to discover more potentials and turn more stones. So, I took the path leading to multiple forks. I’m now on an uncertainty-riddled journey which I’m sure, on the bright side, will take me where I want to be, where I’m destined to be. Or, this might also take me where I never expected or dreamed to be, but will also give me great happiness. Well, who knows.
But, this isn’t just about me or my dreams or my desires. Call me too idealistic, but I’ve also envisioned myself to be sharing my skills to the community, planning future endeavors with them, and turning the plans into realities nobody ever thought would come out of a budding giant in multimedia.
