To Do or Not To Do
I met Bonnie, the marketing director of Kelley's graduate program, early this morning to further discuss about my plan to continue my studies here at IU next year. The due date for the application process is getting near..yet I am still confused, phenin' phenin'..puhh..puhh..
I know that I need to have a master degree in order to be hired as an instructor at IIUM, well, at least that was the original plan, but man.. I just don't understand why this school requires more than 15 hours of my precious time every single day. As I was speaking to a second-year student of the graduate program, my mind kept asking myself, do I really need this, is it worth the time and effort? The guys basically told me that the classes will start at 8:15 am until 11:30 am, then there will be group meetings from 1 pm to 9 or 10 pm. And as soon as everything else is done, I bet I am pretty beat with mata kuyu and badan layu. It is practically like going back to high school!! Ohhhooo..they're pretty busy on the weekends too, and that would suggest that this program will be harder than going to work, thus I shall conclude that I will be a one no-life person by the end of year...sniff!!!
But seriously, this is a golden opportunity for me if I am deeply considering how much I will accomplish. I have the advantage to ignore the GMAT exam since I am a student of this school, they have this field study thing that requires the students to go abroad to Paris, Italy, Australia, blablabla... for 5 whole weeks doing real job for real companies. We will be doing projects and cases that practically equip us to handle all apakebenda in the future.
And, if I will be spending separuh usia remajaku at school, then when should I spend my precious time with my future significant other..and that, I could hardly tolerate. Be a good student, a good wife, a good family member, and a good 'abidah won't be that easy. I wonder how I will handle it, but I am willing to give a try. This decision is so crucial because it comes with additional responsibility - I will be the only Muslim woman with hijaab at the graduate school, I will be carrying this title as a Muslim student...and I profoundly think thats worth fighting for.
I am not that strong, tapi belasah aje laa..
