The beginning of my life as a “career woman”

Today, I have begun my journey as part of the maritime industry work force. While working in Maritime has not been my dream my whole life, I mean princess trumps all, to become successful in the industry is now my one dream.

I plan to be one of those “career women,” the ones who love what they do and make their way to the top by working as hard as they possibly can. They have always been the women I look up to, the ones that do not quit. I am probably already a workaholic and it has only just begun, but for me, my career is my child… life will revolve around it.

There are many opinions when it comes to saying you want to be a “career woman.” There are the people who say, “but what about children” or “there are more important things in life than a career.” Honestly, that’s bullshit, I don’t hear anyone saying that to a man, so why say it to me. I mean, who knows where my life will go down the line, but for now it’s career for me.

That being said, I just arrived in Cork, Ireland to begin the first leg of my journey.  I will only be an intern, but since it is a fantastic maritime company I plan to learn all I can. The key to success is to learn and when it is finally time to go to Singapore for my actual career, I will be a tad bit more ready.

That is all for now folks.

Tune in for a post about my first week in Cork, next week!

Toodles,
