So here I am at my X-roads with my career … steering off to an unknown path.  Though the road does not seem to scary, I face a lot of animosity amongst myself.  Self-regret flutters through me like a seizure — it comes and goes.  I was pointed at a path and I followed.  Instead I should have followed my heart’s desire.  Now I am stuck at a place where I am dumbfounded by curiosity of what could of been, but I have to make choices, significant and profound. Passion seeps through my pours and my mind travels in warp speed.  Don’t know when to stop myself and make a decision.  I’m ready for a challenge but yet I want to be creative with it.  Some people don’t want me to succeed for whatever selfish reasons, and this is what makes me want to challenge myself further.  I want to go above and beyond current expectations to prove myself worth.  Don’t get me wrong … I am beyond happy in terms of OUR love.  I can’t ask for anything more but patience. I know once I get past this point of my life … it will just be a figment of challenges to come.  This is just a stepping stone to monetary/momentary happiness.  As a friend has told me of recent,

“people like to prepare for tomorrow without knowing exactly what will happen
however, that’s pointless
instead one should find stability within themselves
and adapt to the situations as they happen
need to make money to cover a new bill
people think that it’s more troubling that way
but the irony is
it’s more troubling to try to do it in advance
because it’s worrisome
and leads to paranoia
one’s stressed trying to do something before it happens”

So I will continue on with my imperfections and failures because that is a part of growing up.  All I have to do is faith and my dreams will follow.

Future begins today…

Posted on 07 March 2007 by Liza Mae V.

So things are starting to pick up career-wise.  I just had 4 interviews in 2 days with 6 different people in the same organization.  It was intense, intimidating, but I love the challenge.  It gave me an opportunity to find my interviewing style, as well as gave me the confidence I was lacking.  I couldn’t say that I DID land the job but I did the best that I could with the best of my abilities.  Now it’s up to the employers to make that decision.

Now I am focused on landing myself a CAREER not a job.  I have another interview tomorrow but I am still applying because it is not over till the fat lady sings.

I thank those who were helping me through the process.  G surprised me with his enthusiasm and belief in me.  Everyone believes that I did well at yesterday’s interview and that I have a great opportunity, but I have no expectations.  Just seeing what happens.

Time to search for more jobs.

future is mine … minus the fake people

Posted on 02 February 2007 by Liza Mae V.

So today was my first official career related interview, and I thought it went well.  Of course I need major improvement and practice but today was the start of new beginnings.  I most likely will not accept the offer because it does not fit the script of my qualifications, plus the salary doesn’t quite match up to my expectations.  No one said it was going to be easy but it wasn’t as bad as I thought.  In many ways, I look forward to another interview because I know what to look for and to be more presentable.  Life is about trials and trivilations, successes and failures, and everything between.  It’s these moments that define your character, and challenge your true test in faith.  Just gotta believe to succeed!

On another note …

I also realize that some people talk alot of shit and promise you things to give you false hope.  To those people, I say
“Shut The FU!”

Do not speak if your words are worthless.
Do not smile in my face and then turn around and show another face.
Do not try to ACT powerful when you are powerless.
Do not convince me of what you know, but instead SHOW me that you know.
Do not say you’ve helped me accomplish my goals when you truly were not there.
Do not try to pretend to know me, when you know nothing at all.
I do not like fake people.  Ido not like to surround myself with people who constantly speak too much without the actions behind them.  Either say you can do it, or say nothing at all.

“Silence speaks volumes.
Empty words are worthless.”

Do not fall a victim to your self deceit … leading to broken dreams and promises.
You will live a life of lies … leading to a life of unhappiness.

I’m done with these false people.

I am done wasting my time listening when it results to nothing.

I am done with the B.S. lies.
I am DONE!

Liza in a nutshell

Posted on 10 June 2005 by Liza Mae V.


I seriously need to find anothing JOB because I can not pay my bills (VISA) with what I am making.  At this rate, I will be paying my VISA forever.  I should leave my VISA at home but I can’t seem to take it out of my wallet because I am living in this ‘what if I really need it’ mode?  I survived without it so why is it so hard to let go?  I have to let go.  There is no choice because I racked up almost $2000.  Today the VISA leaves my wallet.  *sigh*

That felt good typing.

ComeCorrect.com (not up yet)

I did find another job but I am not getting paid for it.  I am a Photographer/Arts Director for a up and coming webzine in TO.  I am psyched about this because once the webzine starts making money they are going to invest in a new camera.  It saves me $2000 from purchasing one.  *woot woot*  Plus I get to meet new people, party for free, and get to be a part of a great establishment.

Dance Lessons

Yesterday I went to my first dance lesson  and today I am sore.  I feel good besides the soreness, it shows that I am actually using my muscles.  I am noticing some places are getting flabby so I got to get rid of that.  I should really start joining the gym again because once a week isn’t enough … but its a start.

Love of my Life

I am so excited to see him tonight.  We are heading to the beach. 

I don’t know how he puts up with my mood swings.  Some days I just feel the need to question him because sometimes I just need to know where I stand and if there is a future.  I think I scare him with the future speeches because he lives in the today.  I should do that more often but I am scared that I am  just wasting my time.  He is doing nothing wrong for me to think this but I guess it is one of my fears.   I told him this and he was very understanding of me.  I am greatly appreciative of him.  When at I times I think there is nothing he could say/do that could calm me … he miracly does so.  *big sigh*
