Turn Back the Hands of Time

If I would choose a moment to relive it would be the time when I was choosing what course to take in college. If I hadn’t told you before, now would be a good time to tell you that I am a graduate of Electronics and Communications Engineering.

The reason why I picked that course is foolish. I had two schools that I was choosing from, School A and School B. School A was my dream school while School B was plan B. Thinking that I’d never ever study in School B, I didn’t bother properly thinking over what course I’d try and apply for there.

I was watching TV when I was answering my application forms for School B. An advertisement for an Electronics and Communications Engineering graduate flashed on the screen. Not thinking about it at all, I wrote that course down as my top pick.

I know I could’ve just changed courses while studying but the course grew on me. Looking back however, I wish I changed courses while I still had the chance or better yet picked a course I would’ve preferred from the beginning.


  1. Hi Kat. That is just wow. How long was the course? And you could have done something you were really called to do? I’m amazed. What categories might this come under? Career? Study?

      • You guessed it right, disappointing them will be the last thing that I will do for them but considering the state that I am in right now, I just did disappoint them whih is really making me sad.

      • Aww. Don’t be sad! If there’s one thing I know it’s the unconditional love parents have for their children. Wishing you the best! Hugs xx


  2. I completely get what you feel. I’m currently studying Accounting, because my mom said so, even though I’d rather immerse myself in an ocean of art, culture, history, writing, designing and philosophy. Now with online MOOC’s, its become much easier to study what you actually want to, but that field is still very vague (at least according to me) and I’m afraid to step into the unknown territory.

    • I hope you won’t have too many regrets and end up loving it. But one thing I’m learning now is that we can never really have the life we want. We constantly need to adjust our sails and be positive. All of the things I wished I learned back then, I am trying to learn now through this blog. 🙂


  3. Same here. I never really knew what I wanted. I knew I was gifted in teaching. I took up Bio and saw that Communications was really what I loved. To shift was a terrible stress. I still ended up teaching ESL in a medical school. Haha It somehow all worked together, thank God! 🙂

    • Wow! You’re one of the lucky ones. You got the best of both worlds! As for me I now have an IT related job (totally unrelated to my course) and have a blog for my frustrated dreams 😛

    Hi Kat! This is such a relatable post! Studied at university in my early 20s and I felt more capable of making the right decision then than when I was 18 and first applied for university. Do you think you would’ve made a better decision if you were a bit older? Would love to hear your thoughts. 🙂

    • Yes I think I would’ve made better decisions if I was older. Here in the Philippines, you enter college at 16-17. That’s too young!!! 😀

        So true! No one knows what they want in life at that age, haha. Maybe some do, but definitely not the majority. Thanks for the response! 🙂
