It’s been..more than a year since my last sentiment. And I just read my last post about a year ago or so.
As soon as I realized that I can always drive my own wheel, (my own life literally) I did make a lot of choices, best decisions and big moves this year.(2018).
I did spent the remaining months of 2017 moving on, moving forward, taking life, more quality time with my family, fooling around with my toys(actions figs) and still, learn learn learn new things in software development.
I was really broken the last time I made an article about how my life was going.
And what happened after that?
I TOOK RISK. Yes, I took so many risks.Like I valued myself and my family more than anything. I cared for my own happiness too much that I became naive and selfish to break rules. I took every chance I got to make myself happy. To relieve the pain. The pain that was never gone.
I also took some mobile development classes by the last quarter of 2017 with superdad. We spent the remaining months together at work doing machine repairs, updating digital signages and learning new programming tutorials across the web.
First quarter of this year, I decided to look for a new job / company. I resigned on my first job of almost 4 years. It was really sad to part ways with my superior (superdad). We agreed to form our own on a year or so.
I was hired as a software developer on a local software company. I was really happy that finally I have something new to work with. I got friends there like I never had on the latter. I got a chance to be with a team.To argue with real test engineers that also became good friends. I was so enlightened to be with working with real software developers. I troubleshoot, debugged, enhanced client installed software that company owns. It was fun. I even rented a space with my office mates in a condo nearby to accommodate my late nights overtime. It was my first time to be spending nights away from home. I enjoyed debugging stuffs the whole time. It was also my first time to join a team building.
It lasted for 4 months. I was asked by my uncle to join/ help him on a project from a near relative. It was for a gambling software and considering family issues and learning experience I can gain from it, I took it.
I resigned and gave up all the joys I had in that company. I have made friends there. They are great people too.
We started with the project with (my former dev mate-L to join with us). Freelancing is great but took almost all of our time. It was an unfavorable set up that shorten our freedom of being (call ourselves 20’s kids). We finished the first one which lasted for more than 2 months and tested and deployed in the province. I faced several family related issues, hardships of understanding the differences. There were also terrible days and moments that I just rather want to go home and sleep all day. We are well-paid but then, we lost freedom and we’re not happy.
I’ve learned many truths about life during these past year and so.Let’s include shutting off all my social media accounts and less association with toxic people.
1.Life may be tough sometimes but we should be able to stand up for ourselves and choose the right path. People will take advantage of you but you will have to help them anyway.
2.You may love someone new but it doesn’t guarantee that they can love you like you love them..
3. The pain is never gone. It’s always been there. It may hurt you once those memories haunt you.
4. Family is the most important pillar of your life.
5. If you have too much and you just need enough, be kind enough to help others who are in need.
6. You still have to trust people in the process of life.
7. Dream big.Family is the best motivation.
8. Patience is really a virtue.
9. Career is most important in your 20’s.
10. Don’t be afraid to fall in and out of love again.
I can say I did learn a lot by TAKING RISKS. And I am not afraid to take more.
My dev-mate L came back in the corporate world as an android developer and today is her first day.I was really happy for her and her career .
I’ll be on my final interview tomorrow and hoping to get hired also. I’ve been praying to God to give me this opportunity as their System Developer.
