This entry is sure an overrated one but I don’t bother about people’s catcalls. I just need a place to siphon my thoughts. At this juncture, I am supposed to focus on my Paper Project/Mini Research entitled “Malaysian Moslems’ Perception Towards Cadbury’s Image & Its Halal Image”. Yes, I am already in the Chapter 4 and about to enter Chapter 5 which I think should be no hassle – given the fact that end of term holidays already commenced.
Netizens are so creative when it comes to parodying stuffs! Sarcasm never last!
Suddenly, as I was perusing the Net, I have come across many advertisements on scholarships to study abroad for the September 2016 intake. Being cliche me, I became instantaneously agitated. As I peruse the details longer and longer; my mind becomes saturated by that “PhD thing” whereas by right I should have been concentrating on the Master’s Degree part, as in right now!
What really bother me is that probably it would be too late if I were to focus on this “PhD thing” after my Master’s Degree circa January 2016 (applications are closed, etc). Instead of immersing myself with Master’s Degree project, my mind now is excitedly revolving around :-
- the possible titles from any knowledge gaps for my PhD! (What the heck???!);
- and wanting to enroll myself into International English Language Testing System (IELTS) which seems very tough – vouched by Kakak and also from all the samples I’ve perused in the Net (REFER to http://www.dcielts.com/ielts-essays/sample-ielts-essays/). I am scared!!!! Urghhhh!! Well, even if I fail the first time, I’ve always can re-sit for the test BUT EACH ENTRY WILL COST RM750!!! Bummer! But then, that would be a good way to measure my own English proficiency, no? I need to burst the “Syok Sendiri” cocoon.
Gosh; my mind is topsy-turvy! In addition to that; forecasting my transition from the Government scheme won’t be a easy either. Initially, I thought of applying “Cuti Tanpa Gaji” but apparently there are certain clauses and restrictions. Among all the categories under “Cuti Tanpa Gaji”, it seems that “Cuti Tanpa Gaji tanpa Biasiswa” fits the requirement that I want for my upcoming future in pipeline as there will be no bonding contract between me and the Government. But of course, I need to refer this to the Ministry. Damn!
Damn. I heard it is tough! And not to mention RM750 at stake!
Well, no one says the road to crystallize a dream is easy. But with perseverance, Insya ALLAH; you can reach the star. God bless.
