The Journey to... Where??

The past 2 months had been a blast and now what is left is actually, back to stress, concerns and negativity. I just came back from a so-called graduation trip to my home town Hong Kong, Malaysia and Beijing (which I will write about later). There I met some great people, took some great photos, and tasted delicious food. 

A week after I return to London was another big day that I faced: The graduation ceremony, MY graduation ceremony. I received my results through the net and when I told my mom that I was awarded a First Honour, she burst into tears, telling me that her work has finally completed. Yes, it's time for me to repay.
Me and my parents. With dad's eyes closed! hehe.
Some of my beautiful friends whom I shared the 4 years with.
It was a nice day, although I was not impressed with the ceremony at all. All we did was line up to shake the hand of some woman's whom I have never met in my entire university life. We didn't even receive a fake scroll or anything. Nevertheless, it was a formal way to end the 20 years of my education lift. And there I am, packing my bags and continue with my dreams.


But what I wanted to blog about today, is my uncertainty. I am unsure of the path that I should take; unsure about my future. Let alone that I cant really see where my talent and ability lies. I often ask myself the question: "What have I got that is better than others? What do I have that makes companies want me?" And then, I could not answer the question which leaves me to great distress. Yes, I have the qualification. I can speak 4 and a half languages. SO? It does not mean anything anymore in the current world. Education does not matter. Skills does not matter. What matters is how you put your skills to use, your experience, and your achievements. And what do I have? Nothing. 


But apparently there is always hope. So let's see what the guy up there has got planned for me, if he really exists. 
The face of uncertainty, haha
Will you wish me luck?

  1. Congrats! What makes you stand out is the skills that you have, the first honour award, and the 4 languages you speak! :) What languages do you speak by the way? (Cantonese, English, Mandarin?, and ?) Don't worry, you'll find your nitch. There is a Chinese saying, you probably heard of it, the boat will straighten itself when it reaches the pier! "Add oil"!! ;P

  2. I disagree with your statements that speaking 4.5 languages doesn't matter in the current world nor does education not matter. It does matter considering what you want to do as competition in certain job fields can be a rat race. Not that I've figured out entirely what life has in store for me, but the pathway is a little more clearer. Congrats and I wish you well.

  6. You aren't the only one uncertain of your path. Many people, including myself, have been through that. We all have to start somewhere. Language and education can be a difference maker when it comes to getting your foot in the door, and depending on the field you intend to pursue. Don't despair! Good luck and congrats! :)

  7. Hi, I really like how you did your hair for your grad ceremony! Did you do it yourself or get it done at a hair salon? (Which hair salon?) Btw, where is your lovely outfit from?

    p.s. they say it takes a graduate an average of 3 years to work out what they really want to do in life and I can certainly say that it was true for me... GOOD LUCK!
