Here are my thoughts at 12 AM. Must sleep. Can’t sleep… must be because of my regular intake of tea.
We took two tests last week — PACT (Philippine Aptitude Classification Test) and POIS (Philippine Occupational Interest Survey). PACT was extremely long. It consisted of 270 questions. It was disappointing since I wasn’t able to finish it. A lot of my classmates finished ahead of time, so it made me wonder if I was really taking my time or they didn’t take it seriously. The career test was really funny since it was obviously outdated –telegram worker?
I didn’t know that we’d be taking a career exam that day. We even had to fill in a blank that asked the course we ought to take in college. I was so unprepared. I honestly had no idea what to write. It was the last thing I filled up, and only wrote when the facilitator said to pass the questionnaires. I wrote a certain course I realized I wouldn’t even take up. I don’t know why I wrote that –maybe it is because I already have some “skill” in that field.
It really got me thinking… what do I really want to be when I grow up?
When I was much younger, I wanted to be a doctor and a dentist. I don’t even think of it now. Early grade school, I wanted to be a teacher. I would even pretend I had a bunch of students. Being a teacher is such a noble profession I wouldn’t mind being.
A project we made this school year made me enjoy scriptwriting, directing, video editing and filming. I usually hate projects but I enjoyed every single bit of this one. I consider taking up Film.
What if I be a segment producer or a broadcast journalist and work in the media?
I always dreamt of working in the government. I don’t dream of being the president or senator though. I would like to work in the Department of ________ (probably Tourism or Foreign Affairs). I want to be a consul, diplomat, or a secretary –basically be a public servant and give back to my country. I don’t know. I dream big… who am I? Lol. I wonder if Political Science or Public Administration is the right course for me.
Well, I guess I’m still in that stage where I’m trying to figure out what my strengths and weaknesses are and what I really enjoy doing…
