I've been getting some sarcastic remarks from my unenlightened friends saying:
"Kau tidak penat belajar kah?"
That came out from a mouth of a friend that works in an academic field. Yes i know what u're thinking.
"I only own a diploma but i have many working experiences. Tiada guna saya belajar tinggi2, senang juga saya dapat kerja."
Many experiences (??) and she's only 25 (?!). What does that tells you? Some people, they only want a job hence the stagnant work life. Some, they are very ambitious. If you're ambitious, you can complete this sentences.
"Higher level studies is for only those who are scared and reluctant to face the real world."- via FB ok!
What real world? Do you think i'm in Mars? lol. As if she knows how it is being in this level of education. In employment world, you have boss(es). In my case, we have supervisor(s). They both have a thing in common; they can be such a pain in the ass. Apart from that, we meet challenges in any paths of life. Bukan time kerja seja ada cabaran, yes?
And if anyone wants to argue about financial responsibility that people perceives only working people are experiencing, well, in a month i have to pay my car, my study loan, electricity bill, fuel, food, kawin savings, $ for minimal shopping (haha). I dont complain much about that because i have smart ways to manage my finance ;) Perhaps you wonder,how a full time student like me has money to pay all that? The money is not from my parents, of course not from Along, or from my fiance. One fine day,i shall tell you hehe.
Back to the topic, sayings like these doesnt have any power to fade my spirit to pursue the things that i'm currently on. My intention to state those is only to make all of you aware the kind of mindset of people that lives amongst us. Defensive actions are only wasting my energy,i just make peace with the fact that they are not well enlighten, yet :)
