It’s hard to come up with a post nowadays. One thing I don’t have a camera with me and I’m too preoccupied with other things in life. Now I cannot imagine what would happen if I suddenly have 5 months of free time.
A friend recently reminded me of how much time I had after SPM. I was idling for about 5 months back in Kuching. Sure, there are lots to do (sending people off), Damai trips to go, messing around with my Nissan Ad Resort, and some other stuff to do. It’s all archived at post-spm.blogspot.com, my previous blog (wow, 400+ posts in a year. What was I thinking…).
If I had 5 months now…
Many things would happen in that 5 months. I won’t be waking up at 2pm everyday. My time won’t be spent online doing nothing (like now). I will have goals and have ways of reaching them. I will definitely travel more. Meeting up with friends more often. But sadly, the grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side and I don’t have that 5 months.
If I’m still at Inti with my brother, I would be graduating in 1 month with a diploma. And loads of time to do whatever I want. So did I make the wrong decision when I choose to join MAS instead? No, I don’t think so. I’ve thought about this many many times. In fact I think about it everytime I go to Inti Nilai. Did I make the wrong decision? Will I be happier in college?
There are many choices in life that we have to make. This is one them. I choose to learn how to fix planes instead of finishing my diploma. It may not be the path that many will take as most people will want to go college and university and graduate with a diploma or degree or masters or even a PHD. There are pros and cons for both choices and I think you cannot be completely satisfied no matter what you choose. The grass will ALWAYS be greener on the other side. I have choose to live with my decision and that’s where I’m going.
Some people may not think highly of what I’m doing now since I’m doing mechanic work. They don’t tell it to me but I can sometimes tell from the way they say it (or maybe I too perasan). Because if you compare me and someone with a masters or a PHD, they have all the knowledge but I only have what I need to know to do my job. I don’t need to know quantum physics to troubleshoot an engine problem. I need experience.
Back to the 5 months holiday. I wish I could take 5 months unpaid leave now haha. But come to think about it, I may be so carefree that I won’t know what to do. At least now I have a job to keep me busy. Else it’ll be back to those post-spm days. Idling lazily.
Note to self: Don’t drink tea for the whole day. I couldn’t sleep till 3:30am last night and I had to wake up at 6:30am in the morning :S Continue reading
