dream a lil dream

When I was a kid, I dreamt of becoming a flight attendant. I wanted to wear that cute lil outfit and fly from continent to continent for free. Then I realized that they were glorified helpers in a plane and decided that I'd rather be on the other end of the table.

I dreamt of becoming an executive secretary next. I know. Pretty weird for someone who was boyish and who could outpunch anyone in grade school. I wanted to be with the boss when there are dinnner meetings and look all fancy in a smashing outfit. Then I realized that I'd rather be the boss.

Next on my list of dreams was to be chef. I wanted to whip up fancy meals and served them to oohh's and aahhh's of people. I even dipped my hand at baking and was a bit successful at it. Then I realized that I really didn't have a signature dish and nothing I cook sets apart what I make from that of everyone else. Yes it was good but it was not mindblowing.

Then I wanted to be a reporter. You know, the one who's all poised and all that even with people killing each other behind her back. I wanted to report things as they were happening. Then Edsa 3 happened and my Mom saw these reporters with head wounds from the commotion. Poof! There goes my dream.

Lastly, I wanted to be a lawyer. Yes, a crimila lawyer and though I did pass the entrance test to take Pre-Law, my family was just too winded up and paranoid to let me. They had pictures of my car blwoing up soon as I get in. Tsk tsk.

So now, where am I? I work for the BPO of one of the largest banks in the world, handling all the complaints of our customers. Am I happy? I'm grateful for the fact that I have a job but to say that I am in love with what I do would be an overstatement. I'm grateful. Let's leave it at that.

What were your dreams?


  1. Hi Kay. When I was young, I wanted to be a doctor, a police officer, a nun, an astronaut and at one point I also wanted to be a flight stewardess. :) So many transitions.

    I'm not any of those today but I'm happy with my life. I'm glad to know that you're happy with your career. May you have many more opportunities at work.

    BTW, I have an award for you on my blog. I will post it later today. Take care!

  2. I wanted to play basketball in the NBA (that's pro ball in the states). Didn't happen. It appears there is not a lot of demand for short Asian basketball players in the NBA.


Hi! Let's all try to add more positivity in this world and adhere to the saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say, keep silent."

Showering you with unicorn poop so you'd always stay magical! Heart heart!
