Hello my loves! I’ve finally got a moment to sit down and actually write a nice post :)! It’s been so long since my last actual update so I’ll do this one with a few pictures too.
Our little man has grown so fast in the last few months, I can only imagine what he’ll be like next year around this time. He’s able to walk with ease and has become so independent that it’s bittersweet. Now that I’m working, I’m no longer able to spend 24/7 with him- which is good and bad. I find myself missing him at work, and a little jealous of the time he spends with his grandparents but whenever we do get time together it’s spent more valuably on learning or doing fun things together. Arthur and I are also in a better mood every time Leo is around and we’ve become much more conscious about our time with him. At the same time, we have enough time to rest and go on dates here and there as we work on our own relationship. I would say the good definitely outweighs the bad although we lost some time with Leo in comparison to before.
On life in general:
For the last few weeks up until the wedding, everyone had been asking me if I was nervous or stressed but to be honest, I was more stressed about my real estate salesperson exam that was scheduled on the Monday before our wedding. I knew in my heart that I would have a stress-free wedding if all were to go well with the test. After studying for the exam on and off for the past few months, I was so excited to actually pass! For those who know me, I’m not exactly the best test taker so WHEW, so glad that was over and done with! On the other hand, I really have my wonderful husband to thank. Not only did he fully finance the whole thing, he was so supportive throughout. If it weren’t for his constant support, we would not have pulled off our amazing wedding. I’ll post a few pictures here, but I’ll save the rest for when we get our professional ones from our photographer :). Now that the wedding and my exam is done, all I have on mind mind is to finally get started on selling homes! It’s an exciting beginning for my career line and I’m so blessed to be able to have Arthur’s parents be supportive of me working as well. If it weren’t for their helping hand, I would definitely not be able to pursue a career as I am doing now. Marriage life is not much different from what we had prior to the marriage, mostly because we’re both so settled in by now. I can only pray to always have this kind of love and support throughout our marriage, and I will work hard to maintain the balance of my family and career life. Wish me luck? :)
Today, I’m making an attempt to restart this whole blogging thing again. For the longest time, I couldn’t decide whether I wanted a personal blog just to jot down my thoughts at a specific time, or to post something more useful to other people. After the last three months, I’ve decided to make it an effort to do both by blogging about my new life into motherhood :) (I know, you must be thinking… wow, a decade must have passed since her last post, hahah)
Lets start with the basics, and from there… I’ll journey onto the unknown and document my experience as everything comes and goes.
As my first official post for this blog with a new specific purpose, I feel almost overwhelmed for all the things I want to discuss. However, I will take it a day at a time. Although some topics will be from the past, I believe they are just as important to document and remember. I will try to update my blog with all the very real things that are going on through this time and by the time I look back, I will hopefully see the mental and spiritual growth in a process that was destined to be mine.
I’ve always been a very active person in learning, staying out of the house, working, keeping up with a social life, etc. Therefore, it kills me to just sit at home and wait until January. As a new college graduate, I was just as excited to take-off with a great career/internship right out of college. I previously had the perfect opportunity set up and waiting for me at a PR firm located in Taipei, Taiwan, but life unexpected plans pushed me back to the states. As Arthur left on business to Norcal, I finally got around to sending out my resume to various postings on Craigslist for jobs around the area.
Last night, about 10 minutes after sending my resume to Vizio, I had a call back from Clara from stating that she wanted me in sometime this week for an interview. After a good 20 minutes over the phone, I couldn’t believe it-who steps out of their meeting upon a forwarded resume and calls at 8pm to schedule an interview? Speaking to Clara over the phone told me that people at Vizio were sweet. genuine, and efficient in what has to be done. Clara set me up for an interview at 10am this morning.
Today, I met with Clara, Christine (Secretary for President Ben), and Jenny (HR Manager). We had a great interview and I have to say it had to be the most exciting, yet comfortable experience I’ve had. In the end, I knew they wanted someone long-term, so I told them that I have no intention of giving them a fake lead since I had to take maternity leave by mid December. I explained that I knew they would not discriminate just because of my maternity status, but as a responsible professional I wanted them to know exactly what they were getting into by hiring me. Before I finished, Jenny responded reassuringly that being pregnant will not effect my chances in the selection process. Overall, it was such a pleasure interviewing with them, and I can tell that they treat their employees with respect and have a definite team structure. I can only hope they contact me as soon as they have decided!
