Tingling


It was unexpected, far from expected!

Then came that fraction-of-the-second touch and everything changed.

A sensation of closeness grew stronger and warmer. More intense, more exciting than the second before.

I wanted more. I felt greedy with CRAVE.

I CRAVED that amazing, heart-racing, tingling feeling that crept under my skin and I didn’t want to let go.

I was willing to take risks, to ignore ridiculous ‘society standards’ that made the enjoyable a taboo, that made life suck more! I was willing to let go just to experience an extra second of pleasure, happiness, rush.

It’s my new, sweet addiction and I don’t need saving.

It saved me.

I am no longer from rotting in the coffin of boredom. I am brought to the light of life.

Cheers!

Being Used


love-love-quotes-love-sayings-sayings-quotes-

As long as we are alive, we will have to go through all of Life’s tests.

Life will put you through it, no matter how hard you try to avoid it. My mom warned about those manipulative people and I listened to her, but I didn’t exactly understand what she meant until it happened. And that’s when I learned my lesson and it never happened again.

That’s why they say: you will only learn from your mistakes.

Detect, Capture and Take it!


I always come upon chances, but there are only a few of them and it would be a shame if I forget about them.

There are a few chances that I ignored because I was either too busy or too lazy to do them and ended up regretting it. But there was this one chance that I decided to forget about it because I didn’t have time but then I took it before it was gone.

A competition from L’Oreal was announced. It was made especially for marketing majors students (like me). I knew this would take a lot of time, because it required a lot of commitment and dedication. I mean we had to develop a product and run it! In the middle of the semester and in the heat of the examinations and midterms, we had to give some of our time to it. So, at first, I told my friend that we can’t do it… just ignore it. But then our teacher in class mentioned it and she was extremely motivational. She said that you are marketing students, and that is exactly what you’ll be working in the future and that is what companies look up to when they hire. Even if we didn’t win, the fact alone that we participated and tried will look fabulous on a CV. So, I immediately talked to my friend and told him that we have to participate before it’s too late. And we did.

It was an amazing experience. First, there were campus finals and we worked our best for it and we passed! They picked 6 out of 25 teams and we were one of the six. I felt good and confident and very motivated and competitive to go on to the next round which was the Nationals. In the Nationals, we had to present our product and build a digital strategy to build awareness and create engagement. We were there that evening, and on that same day I had a very important concentration midterm right before the Nationals. But it was definitely worth it! I mean I had the chance to stand in front of Kiehl’s representative, 2 HR managers, marketing manager and other managers in L’Oreal to show them our hard work! And even though we weren’t the chosen team for international finals, yet it was still a wonderful learning experience better than any course or book I have studied.

It’s an opportunity that would have definitely haunted me, if I didn’t take it. It’s a chance for future job opportunities at well-known companies and L’Oreal. And it’s an achievement to look up to! 

After 211 days…


I hate predictions; I don’t like to fast forward to the future. I like to stay in present and live each second. Life’s too short to always plan for the future. I understand in business that planning is very crucial for future growth but that is not always the case in personal life. Personal life is different from business; it requires being awake in the present while planning is for setting goals and being organized.

But let’s say someone asked me to fast forward 211 days from today and to explain what I would be doing at that day. On 211th day from today would be July 30th. On July 27th, it was my birthday where I’d been older by one year and am 21 years old. Three days later, I’d still be at my internship gaining as much information and experience from my colleagues and work as much as possible. I would have by that date completed half of my required internship and would have a clear idea of what the year 2015 holds for me and in which path I would be pursuing. On that day, I would have made a choice on what I’d be doing in 2015 as a career.

That’s my answer. But until that day comes, a lot of things might change… things that I don’t know of and don’t want to know of. I’m happy today and that’s all that matters to me now.
