It feels very different knowing that you are free to do whatever you want. I can finally do part time make up artistry, spend more time drawing my fashion ideas, cooking for my husband and being the girly me.
Working in a male dominated environment is not as easy as one might think. I had to endure male chauvinism and proof that I was either equally good and even better than guys. It was a very competitive environment.
With all said, I did make very good friends. My best friend is also in the Army. I will miss all the fun time we had working together. Army life is tough yet interesting. One must experience it to understand what I am talking about.
Now I am a civilian, I have to get used to thinking like a civilian and dressing like one too.. No more army t-shirt and jeans for me. It's going to be more fashionable clothes since I am going into the fashion industry.
Hopefully, if all works well I will go to a fashion school next year 2010. My dream of being a fashion designer cum entrepreneur will come true. God has blessed me with a good life. I am a very happy person now!
It's never too late to achieve your dreams!
