From Self-Destructive Routine to Master Degree



When I was 19 years old, I felt like education wasn't that important nor did I give a s*** about it. I felt as if I knew everything, I acted as an adult who know what's good for me. Therefore, studying wasn't what I really wanted to do in those days. However, in the age of 25, personal attitude towards education has critically changed. 

I assume that almost everyone of us might come across the idea of "I know everything because I am grown up now" Yep, me too. I didn't even realize how vital the education was because all I wanted to do was work, save money and get a tattoo (Even though, I haven't gotten it done yet lol) I was studying at Chulalongkorn University, the top ranked university located in Bangkok, Thailand while I had a chance to go to the states in almost every Summer in order to work and live my life. As they say "Live life to the fullest" I really lived my life with such self-destructive routine. I worked and partied a lot, drank alcohol way too much more than healthy drinking water. I thought it was so cool to go to the concerts and chilled out til 4 am in the morning just to party and have fun. I'm not saying it was wrong, but what I'm trying to say is "Nevertheless my life in those days was hectic, I don't even regret any single minute since it is my life's lesson

C'mon you can't do something like that when you are 40 years old, can you? All those experiences have shaped me to be who I really am today. Like I said, I thought it was cool to do so, but I guess the more years pass, the more you realize that what you thought was somehow ridiculous. I thought I could live my life by working at junk food stores or department stores, but I was totally wrong. 

Some people asked that why would I continue on Master Degree when I have already been working as a fashion blogger? Simple answer is "nothing lasts forever." Nothing is predictable unless we work our asses off to reach that goal. I accomplished my bachelor one in Arts, and now I'm studying Master Degree in international fashion marketing management. I think this course is definitely supporting my career as a blogger because there are so many things to be learnt including organisation and product development. I think being blogger is not just about wearing clothes, and posting on your blog though. What if you want to create your own brand in the future? What if you may become a part of the renowned company? What will you do without education? How could you even apply to it?

I just think that having degree would be a great benefit for long term accomplishment. From a party girl like me, I still encourage you guys to take a consideration in education. 

You won't regret it

  22. I totally agree with you that education is really important. Of course it's nice to live in the moment and you should always enjoy every moment, but never forget to think about the future!

  23. you look lovely, gail! i think education is important, but it doesn't really matter when you go to school as you can do it later in life and obviously it isn't for everyone:-) glad you're happy to be studying now, though! xx

  24. Yep, it's definitely all about balance! Glad you've found a path that's right for you x

  25. I agree! Although for me it was the opposite, I graduated from uni without much thinking, I guess mostly to please my parents, although now I can't say I regret it (a bachelor degree is never completely lost) but I really don't want to work in the field I studied. I have been sick and then traveled recently, and I think travel really is the best teacher x

  34. Lovely post! I have a bachelor's degree in business economics and I will eventually get my Master's but I'm just not ready to take plunge yet (awful, awful me haha). How exciting for you to already be getting your Master's. Thanks for the inspiration and motivation. I may one day sit down and study for my GREs! You look great by the way! Fabulous style as always.
