Future

18 Mar 2013


You know what I hate about being in early 20s? Those talks about future, i.e. job and marriage. It wasn't until I turned 21 that I realised how I had wasted my life when I was still a teenager. I should've done better than this. I regret a lot of things, including my university and major choice. I shouldn't have taken education major as I don't really want to be a teacher. Now I want to be an editor in a magazine, whilst my parents still want me to be a teacher. The conversations about job and career aren't going anywhere with them and it drives me crazy.

And marriage. MARRIAGE! Boy am I still 21. I don't understand those people (non family) who keep talking about how and why I should get married soon. It's not like I don't want to get married asap, but enough with the talking already! Might as well just wait for the good news and mind your own business. Why don't you get married soon? And why is it your business when my own parents haven't even mentioned it?

Now getting back to the first topic, I need your help:
In your opinion, what are the reasons why teaching is awesome? Why do you think I should be a teacher?

  1. Teaching is awesome when... in my teenager thought, it is awesome when... there are no company wants to employ you, or when nobody recognize our works, our creations, our inovations. So just teaching anybody who needs the knowledge that you have.
    Well too narrow...
    Teacher is a precious profession, dear :)
    But, you know, regardless that things, you like telling stories, at least for me, your friend, you have told maaaany stories to me. That's why you should be a teacher, and history as the subject. I'm being serious.

  2. Wow, I'm having some serious flash backs right now to when I was in my early twenties. The funny thing about what you choose to study at Uni is that the majority of the time you don't end up working in that field anyway. I studied Archaeology and I work in a library. I have a friend who studied Leisure Management and she works as an immigration caseworker. And another who studied Journalism and works in a printing company. Whatever degree you end up with you can always do a graduate diploma later on and go into another field.
