December 22 was the last day for me at my internship program at the Ministry of Finance. At the time, I had two conflicts in my mind. First, I wanted to work there longer, and the second I wanted say goodbye.
In the morning, there was not anything special, I had just done the same tasks as I do every day, such as copying, sending e-mail, and receiving phone calls. But at 4 p.m, the head of the division where I interned gave me 50,000 kip to buy some oranges and apples for our farewell ceremony.
I went outside to buy them and returned to the office. At that time, other officers were helping to organize a table for food and drinks. After we finished managing the food table, I invited other employees to have dinner together.
Before we start eating, the deputy head of the external finance department gave us a speech and we reported our internship to them and expressed our sincere thanks to all of them. Next, we took some photos for a good memory and eventually we started to have dinner.
Though I want to continue to work there, but reality is I cannot because I don’t have any relatives who work in the Lao government. So, the best place to work for me is with NGOs.
After finishing dinner at 6 p.m., we said goodbye to each other, and I went to school.
Although, the internship program is already finished, my final report to school is not finished. Moreover, the biggest thing that I have to do is to study more and more in order to pass the EIP exam or Tofel Test, which the last requirement for being a student at the Lao-American College.
The street to my destination has not stopped; there many things waiting me to do for tomorrow and in the future, good or bad. Theses are the points that I have to face and fight against. The way is long to make my dream come true.
