I also started this year with a new job. I still work in TESDA but I am now working at a new department. My former position paid bigger but I was always stressed out because of my boss. I asked my sister for some advice and she told me to follow what my heart tells me. I was battling between higher pay with a boss I don't really get along well or lesser pay but with a very good working relationship with other employees. I chose the latter even though I like the higher pay but I am now happier and less stressed with my new position.
I am saving some money every pay because I am planning to enroll in a master's degree. I finally passed the licensure exam for teachers but I am still looking for a school where I can teach. I hope that I can achieve this goals in the near future.
