Hey guys! Guess what? Our neighbour's house alarm is still... alarming. It's driving all of us completely nuts and I just want to go inside their house and take off the damn thing. Well, it stops once in a while but the most annoying part is when it goes off again in the middle of the night. When are they coming back!!!
Anyway, this blog post is part deux of my previous blog post(well, just a continuation) The past few months were really great and I realised a lot of things. So now, let me tell you a story:
We migrated to NZ when I was 15 years old. I met this really great guy but then, he moved to another region. Long story short, we're in a long distance relationship (until today) Since then, my only goal was to graduate from highschool and study university at Wellington. I never imagined myself studying at the University of Auckland (yep I'm an Aucklander) AUT, or any uni at all that's not in Wellington.
Upon finishing highschool, which was November 2011, things changed. I realised that I have to make a decision - I've made lots of friends here in Auckland, my family's here, and I actually learnt to love this place. Moving to a whole new place will be tough for me since I have to start from square one all over again. My life's direction completely changed - I stayed in Auckland: with nowhere to go since I only applied at Victoria.
I remembered this particular school that my friend used to talk about. I googled their website and browsed through it. I don't know how or why, but I suddenly felt the urge that I SHOULD APPLY. Now here's the thing: I've always wanted to take Psychology. Throughout my highschool life, that was my main goal. I took subjects that are related to that course, I considered no other options, just that one.
The school that I applied to only offers Business, Travel, and Hospitality. As I've said, I don't know what the fuck happened, I just applied for a Business course. I have no idea about that field because highschool was all about getting into Psychology. I felt scared, but excited as well. During that time, I was really confused and depressed. I always wondered whether I made the right decision or completely fucked everything up. There were days when I wanted to pack my bags and go all the way to Victoria Uni and do my Psychology course.
During that time, I made a lot of friends in Crown (my school) I even found a best friend for life (yes, the person I always talk about aka Martin) I also realised that I want to major in Marketing because I had the best lecturer EVER. She told us stories about her jobs and experiences, I just wanted to do it as well! From then on, I never questioned my decision ever again. I felt that I made the right choice and I've never been happier. I've met really amazing people who helped me during my saddest days. I discovered my passion for Marketing, I had a wake up call that this is where I really belong and what I should be really doing. Boy, I'm so glad I stayed.
Martin and I are now studying at Massey. After one semester, we got accepted right away due to our grades. Everyday, we always wonder how our life would be if we never met. I helped him and he helped me. We are now at Massey because we helped each other. As lame as it sounds, we both admit that our lives would pretty much suck if I never went to Crown. His achievement is also my achievement, and it feels really great knowing that I have changed someone's life for the better.
That's it for now! my boyfriend's waiting for me on Skype. Stay tuned for the next one!
