(190) Batanes, 🇵🇭 As those who have been following me for quite some time know (as well as my friends, as well as those who read the bio lol), this IG biz is really just a hobby. I have a full-time job as an actuary for an insurance company, and I spend most of my time, not traveling as some might suspect, but sitting in a cubicle for a 9-5 job. It’s a job that I love and that I depend on for my travels (without it, no salary, and with no salary, no travels, and with no travels, no travel IG!). •
This job is not without its challenges. As an actuary, you are expected to take or attend a boatload of exams, modules, assessments, courses, and seminars in order to move forward professionally. There are A LOT. It takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears before one could finally say they’ve made it at the end of the road.
Yesterday, I got an email inviting me to the very last step of this almost 15-year process. One seminar left before I could finally say this part of my life is over. One more obstacle to hurdle before I could pursue my hobbies more seriously (like taking photos like this one, just putting relevance to the photo here lol). Just one more step. •
It’s truly crazy. What a journey.
