Life Updates - Calling out Volunteer Tree Panters

Hello World!

How's your life in the past few months? Mine have been totally busy after resigning on my first job.

Yes, I resigned. I was working for a mapping department on a private company (Asiatype Inc.) as a GIS (Geographic Information System) Specialist. To give you an overview of what I did, we are simply doing road maps--on your GPS device.:) 

Some of my students in RareJob think it's cool. Yes, I have to admit, it's cool and fun at the same time but the environment in the office is something not enticing for me; plus the travel (I travel almost 4-5 hours a day) made me sick and very unhealthy. I lost so much weight. I also did not have much time for RareJob after going home since I am totally tired after the travel.

I did not see myself doing it in the near future, GIS is a minor subject in college, it was fun but I wanted to practice what I learned in college.

I resigned on my first job. I think that career path is not for me. I feel there is something missing, I feel there is something more that I can do.

Luckily, when I resigned, there is a vacant slot for a government department which is just 5 minutes walk from my home (isn't it awesome?! no more travel fees..hehe).

Now I am working as a contractual (Extension Officer) to the government under the NGP (National Greening Program)
