All about the start of job applications and of Chinese New Year. I got my resume up just in time for the start of my applications this week, and realised it was still very general. Oh well, that’s what happens when there’s so much to do and bad coordination. Anyhow. I let a possible job pass me by, and after asking someone about it two days after the deadline, I realised it might have been worthwhile applying for it. Hum.
As the days passed I felt more worried about what was coming next. Not worried in the sense of ohnoohnohowhowhowhowhow worried, just calmly. thinking. if i know what i’m doing. It’s true, if i really want a job i’m sure i can find one. maybe not what i studied, or what i’m interested in, but something to tide over the current crisis.
And then. somebody suggested doing further studies. Oh ya hor. how come it has left my mind already. all along my “plan” was study till masters then find a job. then somehow it got lost along the way. cue searching for possible courses, and realising i can’t qualify for quite a lot due to my crappy grades.
preparations for the new year followed, cleaning, spending time discussing stuff with family and relatives and lots of distant cousins coming around to talk. then i see more options coming my way. study in australia. good – see out the recession. nearby! short duration. bad – well, certain people have perceptions of studying there. courses might not be directed at asian undergrads. specific course i want might not be offered there.
and so it went on, bouncing along. and of course, eager to capitalise on the 4 day weekend, i slacked and played a lot. and i’m not much better of than when i started. probably more confused.
sounds like a cool week eh =)
