Monday Motivation: On following your dream

I got this magnet when I was at Got Craft? and I look at it when I’m in need of some motivation.

Recently I was in a period of my life where I felt lost. Realizing that I’m near the end of my undergrad with no clear direction of what I want to do afterwards, I was scared. What made matters worst is that I realized that I didn’t want to pursue psychology at the graduate level.

I took a risk and decided that I want to pursue marketing and communications. I knew that I could use my psychology background in marketing, despite what people tell me. I sought out experience related to marketing and communications, and ultimately landed an internship doing just that. I know that after I graduate with my psychology degree, I will have to take some courses in marketing/communications and for once in my life.

The moral of this post is that if you have a dream, take risks and work towards that dream. The journey will be hard, but in the end it will be worth it. I get people telling me that I can’t go into marketing with my psychology degree, but I’m proving them wrong. For so long I didn’t do anything because I didn’t think it was possible but it wasn’t until I took a risk that change happened. I am taking baby steps towards my dream career, one risk at a time.

First Snow Day of 2012!

It finally snowed in Vancouver! Vancouver barely snows because it rains most of the time, it only snowed once in 2011 and that melted the next day LOL.

View of the snow from my front yard. I just realized I’ve never driven in snow. For the 2 years I’ve been driving, it never snowed so I never had to drive in snowy conditions.

Today is also my brother’s RKO birthday. Guess how he is celebrating it? By going to watch WWE wrestling of course LOL.

Today my dad needed me to do some work around his workshop so that’s what I did today. I started my morning off with this:

Early Grey Tea Latte from Starbucks, cinnamon straw and mini croissant from IGA marketplace.

For lunch we had some pho, great on a snowy day like this:
