Where there is a will, there is a way.
Yes, as I said, I will keep working and studying Maritime Profession no matter what happens. Some of my friends talked to me that they didn’t really want to join my current university’s department. They went to university because after studying, their parents (or their relatives) could possibly arrange for them a good offer. Some of them have their parents work for this industry so they can find a job in this field easier due to the relation they have. Most of them said that if they work on board, they perhaps work for ten years the most, and then they will apply for another job on shore. However, I won’t. I will be at sea for my entire life, until I retire or until there are no ships sail through the sea anymore.
Maybe, it was a fate that had already been decided. Four years ago, I chose this path by my own will but I didn’t have any clues about what I am supposed to do in the future. All I had in mind that time was how to get away from home as far as possible. While I was turning the pages of University Choosing Guideline, I found a piece of information about my current school. I immediately knew that what I was looking for and then applying for this department without any hesitation. I can say it my destined career.
At first, I was always worried that if I was suitable for this job. By the passing of time, I realize that I somehow like it. I also have other hobbies like learning about science, computer or IT. I like them but I don’t think I can make any big difference, but I found them right inside navigation. I like English; I have to study English a lot here. I like computer and technology; I can use a lot of modern equipment once I work on board. I want to be somewhere far away; I can travel around the world but no one can contact me if I don’t want them to do so. All my wishes can be fulfilled and I don’t wish for anything better than that. I can’t find any reason so as not to do this job.
I do not deny that my job has a lot of disadvantages. However they don’t matter to me. I’m going to graduate soon I will try my best to achieve what I desire and deserve to have.
At that time, I just wanted to play with her hair, irritate her, happy to see she came to class everyday.
When I was in high school, I and she studied in a different school. Rarely do I have a chance to meet her but her images are still in my head.
Passing the university entrance exam, I am now studying to become a man who is always far away from home. That one-sided love is hurting me a lot. I hope time will erase that pain.
Eventually, I decided not to tell anyone, for any price, I will keep it in mind, a beautiful memory. One more decision, I will dedicate my life to seafaring, no wife, no child, no family.
I have a long time to think what I will I get and what I will lose when I make such decisions.
That’s hard but I will make it come true.
Thanks for reading!
Have a nice day!
