This is What I Wore #53: To Opportunities *clink*
(This was in January!) Second outfit this year!! Today, Just & I head out to ABS CBN (yes wow nice) for a meeting for a project that we will have part of as freelancers. Since I thought it’s sorta of something formal (big company, big people to impress), I dressed up for the occasion. Top portion is the “casual” of my smart casual attire, just a simple basic crop top that I use to highlight my pants. Bottom part is “smart” part where in I wore black high waisted trousers and pointy, fancy flats. I feel like this outfit tells that I’m serious for the job but also that I have fun while doing it. Then it turns out, the office was full of young adults who wore casual outfits for work. Cool.
The meeting went well, but the rest of the project/process didn’t. It’s a whole story but to cut it short, I was very optimistic about my role in the project, but then they had a lot of expectations from me and I had 0 experience which resulted in me backing out. It was a BIG opportunity that only a stupid person would not take, but then I feel I wasn’t the right person for the job even if I try my hardest. There was crying and arguing in between those moments. It was SOOOO stressful. After a while, I was called back again but this time I only had a little contribution for the project, that’s okay though, I still got paid!
