Growing up is a pain to some people. Alas, the pain still holds true for me too (even if I try to deny it) but in another perspective, it’s an opportunity… and I’m VERY excited on what it can hold! Quite some stuff lined up, degree now seems to be grabbable (if such a word even exist) and most importantly, the future seems not too far away now..
Firstly there’s the lectures: right now my lecture days are limited to just Mondays and Tuesdays. Which sort of provides me with an entire LOONG weekend! (to be more specific, that’s Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday worth of holiday EVERY WEEK!) I know, I know, rocks to be mua 😀 Anyhoo obviously it’s not wasted. Time management calls for a healthy mix of revision, time for my individual project dubbed “Camera Recalibration and Stereo Reconstruction”, some dosage of UKEC (which happens to be quite interesting this year, more about this later) and of course, not forgetting my “crucial link-time” which due to priving eyes, I will not be able to explain it in all honesty. 😀
I find myself mixing with people in groups that you can even put a label on! Recently found out that my groupmates who have already graduated happen to be the only ones with a 1st Degree, what smartasses! Some of them are of high-calibred nature, academicly inclined of course, in a world-class point of view! Amazing, that. Then there are those who live to create something the world will notice, I SWEAR, these people are creating impressions EVERYWHERE they go! It’s just so moral boosting to see people like this around, those who create movement for the rest of the world to follow. Big stuff, I tell you 😀 The rest of the groups are worth mentioning too, but if I go on from here it’ll probably end up like some nonsense of blabbers. LOL.
Coming up next in my LIFE agenda is actually a football friendly match between Portugal and Brazil, playing at our very own Emirates stadium! Fine, I forked out 35 pounds for the ticket, but as the saying goes, you only live once. Besides, I think I earned this ticket myself (although truth to be told my working periods this academic year is really a lot LESS compared to the last, which means less $$$). Oh and speaking of $$$ I’ll be earning £250 for 2 days worth of taking care of electronic equipments during the CareersInAsia event, by invitation! How cool is that? 😀
I suppose I’ll end this stupid post with a last moment’s thought: is my life now runned by invitations? I may be getting very big-headed about these things, like for instance, I’ve lost the will to apply to jobs that require strenuous application processes, simply because I tell myself there are so many companies who WANT to hire me, which usually are obviously smaller ones… You see, previously it was a challenge, to see where I stand and go head-on-head with whomever I was competing with! I suppose circumstances has changed, and I could very well be acting on egoistic impulse… Well, whatever it is, I will need to find the solution myself. It’s time for some ol’ reflection service *wink*
