Dominiquetiu 's Thoughts:

I love the idea of being a working girl. I like waking up everyday, knowing I have something important to do. I like having a schedule, I enjoy doing something that impacts society, and I like having targets. Working gives my life direction and a sense of meaning. Yes, there are times when I’d whine and complain about having to deal with irate clients, waking up early, being on-call, and driving through traffic, but who doesn’t?
The best thing about having a profession is that it makes one independent and self-sufficient.

Independent because it gives me a wider range of roles to fulfill and another dimension as a person. It allows me to learn how to interact with people, and to understand a variety of industries. Mostly because working allows me to obtain a different set of values not readily available to everyone, ones that strengthen my character and inner resolve.

It also makes me self-sufficient of course–and not just monetarily. Of course, I can never discount the fact that it was through work that I’ve understood the value of money. I mean, it’s not rocket science… it’s a pretty simple formula: you work hard so you earn more and thus, you value your earnings. As a child, I would throw tantrums if my dad failed to buy me all that my heart desired (life-size play house, notwithstanding) but now, instead of throwing tantrums when I wanted something, I would work hard to get it. Because of this, I’ve learned not to constantly rely on anyone to succeed in any way.

That said, Working is a many splendored thing. It’s not for everyone though. So here’s to four years of being employed, and gradually growing into my profession!

Here is a photo set of my Monday outfit. Mondays are critical for me–attire is strictly business casual as we have an inter-departmental meeting in the mornings to report on our progress and percentage accomplishment of our sales quota.
