There are days, like today, that I feel like my life would make a really decent tale to tell. Sadly, I’m usually either too lazy to tell(type) it or I just don’t fancy the idea of letting people in.
I’m growing out of it though. Slow but sure.
Before I leave this beautiful country(Algeria), I probably do multiple posts to tell but a few of these tales.
Anyway, it hit me yesterday how little by little, I’m getting closer and closer towards becoming an engineer. A chemical engineer. With boots, and a mind full of explosive science.
Also, I am becoming a “grown-up” as well. Yipee…
Funny thing is, engineering wasn’t really a dream in the beginning. I met a couple of engineers while growing up. I thought they were smart and all that, I just never thought it was meant for me. Like, “you can be smart but you should know your place in life” kinda situation.
I’m not sure when my mindset started changing, but one day, I woke up and engineering didn’t seem so scary. Well, the entire transformation and career selection process was more detailed than that, but I am a recovering lazy storyteller so…
I’m not going to lie, the journey there is hard and crazy and there are times when I wonder why in the world I chose this path. A lot of hard decisions have been made. A lot of blood has been shed.
But if I’m being honest, the fact that my “what if” is now my reality is just exhilarating. With the added bonus of being multilingual.
God has truly been good to me. And I can’t emphasize on how grateful I am.
