I got a phone call from my mom the other way, complaining that my younger sister is taking a photography course in some local college. Well, that’s cool, I never knew there was a course all about photography.
Anyhow, she continued to tell me how the course is not good and how it will make it hard to look for a job and etc. At the same time, she took a few example person who choose the right course and get a job right away after graduated. Typical, but she has her very own reason.
I remember when I quit architecture and go into design, both my parents are very annoyed with the course I’m taking too. Well, I still want to choose something I am good at and polish it to the best possible, that’s the thinking back then. It works. Although I ended up doing web development than web design, but I’m glad I took the design course instead of architecture.
One think I’m more grateful is how college sharpen my critical thinking than what skill I posted after graduated. College life is good, it is what people said “Honeymoon period”, you attend, you finish your own, you graduated. But the processes and experiences that count, not the paper that tells you how professional you are, after all, your paper telling you what you did best in the past, not in the future. Critical thinking live with you in the future.
Phiew… Finally made it to the second interview and now I’m ready to go for a short vacation. Tomorrow afternoon I’m going to save 5 minutes and arrive in Medan
- Dirty clothe – Checked
- Passport – Checked
- Rupiah – Checked
Done! Everything is there now. Should bring some of my omega fish oil instead of weight loss pills, freaking cholesterol keep raising!
Anyway, came back from the short interview and showed some portfolio, which I think not quite good for them. Some question really out of my expectation, and I am very lousy on explaining who I am and what I do actually. And I ended up having this question, but still, after a few trial or maybe experience of facing people, I don’t get nervous at all on this interview. I think practice make perfect is the lesson today.
Did I not mention about the interview? I don’t think the first time was the interview, however, I found out more about the college though.
I don’t know what department this is though, but it look much more better than any room in the college area However, I find the environment kinda tension there. Well, still the same, people are wearing black and only black. If I’m correct, grey color gives more space for creativity instead, why black?
Anyway, I’ve postponed my flight to Indonesia. There are some stuff I needed to settle up this few days. Let’s not pointing about money first, it hurt so much. I’ve been applying job from the internet, most job are based in Singapore (Yes, the initial plan), however, none of them reply, instead, my college replied me
Then, I took some times to talk with some lecturer, and friends who have bonding with college and applied in college. Until now, they all tell me that they’re waiting for reply and been interviewed for few times. Sound to me the college are looking for the best, also telling me the college is working slow. As for my previous queuing entry, some told us that they’re short of staff, and here my friends all telling me they’re waiting for reply. I wonder if I might need to wait for months for the reply as well? Maybe I should do some more Lipovox review and earn my own living first…
The other day, when I went to college for my graduation ceremony, I quickly went to take some photos with the initial gown, which is different with others, because it’s for Curtin course. And it’s different with the other courses, sound like they’re separating with bacon of the month club. However, in the last minutes, like 10 minutes before we que up for arrangement, the authorities wanted us to change the gown.
This is to standardized the whole hall to have the same gown, good idea, that’s what I thought of on my previous diploma graduation. I have no problem with it. However, this only tell after I took and paid to the photographer on the previous gown and there is another shoot on stage, which now will be different. Just when all people thought that this college never can fool us anymore, and they still wanna do it for the last time I mean, the glowing gown need a tie to make overall wearing better, and I don’t have one
If anyone who attend that ceremony and open their ears, they will definitely heard something else then cheering for graduating. Hmmm… Who is gonna be fired?
