Hello! My name is Patrina and I joined the big 3 club in Aug 2020. The feeling is ineffable. While I am excited for what’s to come in the next few years, I am also afraid of the risk that I’ll cower from and the opportunities I may miss as time goes by. Thankfully, I have my husband who is ever so encouraging to push me on. He is one of the reasons why I am so optimistic in life.
John and I met when we were 15. We were merely acquaintances and only started talking after I approached him to mend a heartbreak at 18. Things took off after and it has been 12 years since. We got married in 2018 and moved into our new house the very next day. While many of my friends are already doubling the number of headcounts in their family, we are taking small steps to form our own. The dream is to have two. (According to me)
I am currently working in the banking industry after making a few switches in my career over the past years. Each switch was decided based on the objectives I have at different life stages. I am glad to have gone through it all and am looking forward to what the future may hold.
I hope you join me as I document my lessons, thoughts, and fears navigating my 30s and hopefully, parenthood.
