Challenge After Graduation

Yesterday was my graduation march and it is one of the most special day for my parents. All their sweat and tears didn\’t go to waste after all. Now I need to return the favor to my parents. I graduated with honors! Oh, really?! I won\’t elaborate much about it. I\’m just happy to get one. Btw, the keynote speech was really inspiring. It removed my doubt as a fresh graduate. Age is all the advantage I have right now; being young means I can do more things to improve myself and there will always be room for improvement.

Today, I officially entered the workforce — my first job. I attended the orientation, mingled with other new hires, chatted with complete strangers in the office and listened intently to my superiors. I know it will be hard to shine because I am surrounded by talented people — it is a challenge to work harder. All employees are members of one big family. My boss actually feels like a big sister to me and my team mates are about my age. We are like brothers. The true competition here is among me, myself and I.

As quoted in the keynote speech yesterday, Today\’s excellence is tomorrow\’s mediocrity. Very true.
