My life as an employee.

When I was in high school, programming is something that I didn't realize I'll be doing for the rest(?) of my life. The pressure of every body in my batch taking up nursing course makes me an outcast. Alam mo yung lahat ng tao sa paligid mo wants you take nursing as a course. Kesyo malaki ang possibility na makaka-abroad ka, malaki ang kita.  Kung ihahalintulad siya eh, ang nursing parang fashion, siya yung trend noong batch namin. Pag di nursing ang kinuha mo,may magtatanong, bakit hindi nursing ang kinuha mo?

And frankly, computer science course is not on my top list too. But why I decided to took this course? Well, there are several factors to consider: my best friend is taking an IT course, siyempre, para kaming tuko na di pwede maghiwalay, I decided to take a similar path; si crush computer science ang kinuha (edi ako gaya-gaya din, haha, I know it sounds mababaw pero may sira yata utak ko noon eh), na-addict ako sa pag-gawa gawa ng html/css (uso yan sa friendster/myspace noon, pagandahan ng profile) akala ko ganun lang din ang programming, ayoko na pagsisikan ang sarili ko sa mundo ng nursing kasi si kuya nagtake din ng nursing eh (pero eventually, di nya tinapos at kumuha ng IT).

So when I entered college, tsenen, hindi pala htm/css ang gagawin ko - java, c++, cobol, php (dito nagamit ko yung html/css, tandem sila eh). There are times that I did want to give up my course and choose something na kayang kaya ko ipasa.

Now, I'm celebrating my 5 years as an IT professional. It's a long walk. Sometimes I just wanted to stop at hindi porke tapos ka na ng college eh hindi ka na mag-aaral. It's not. You should continue building up knowledge. Continue studying, continue learning new technologies. If you will not do it, magsasawa ka kasi parang feeling mo di ka nag-gogrow, parang wala kang natutunan. So this is my advice to myself - to learn because there is so much to learn. Learning doesn't stop at school, it stops when you don't want to. So happy 5 years! Hey, let's move forward shall we?
