My Very Own Devil Wears Prada Story

I have a thing for inspirational movies. I feel it uplifts my spirit and awakens the fighter in me. One of my absolutely favorite inspirational movies is The Devil Wears Prada. I love how the heroine, Andy, went to prove to her boss, Miranda that she was a girl who can do the job.

I've been very busy at work lately and it's because my boss is riding me like crazy. So many reports and presentations to do. It's no easy feat I'm currently undergoing. I'm not ashamed to say that I've been having such a hard time doing this work that I have cried a couple of times already since the project had begun... Although I'm still hanging on for dear life.

My boss is a strict one. Very bright man really but still strict and tough. He's trying to train me to become a very good accounts person. He said so himself that he sees the potential in me. However, it hasn't been an easy road to take. It's been frustrating and tiring, rendering so many overtimes at the office.

Sometimes I feel like quitting. But I'm not a quitter. I'm determined to overcome the obstacles at work just like Andy did. I cannot let my very own Miranda get to me. I can't. I won't. I need to take on this challenge and face it head on.
