It's been a year since I officially appointed as a bachelor of science. Yes, I've said before that I entered college majoring in chemistry and had graduated since 2010 - on this date. I still remember how my heart beating so much while waiting the judicium outside the room where the lecturers negotiated the trial outcome and what a relief when we knew we all managed to graduate.
Compare our expressions before and after judicium being told to us.

Before I got the job (actually, it's not official yet that I am accepted), I had so much time, literally. And it was hard. Imagine one year without doing anything you supposed to do. They told you to find a job and earn money for your life. But some people don't just apply for a job and accepted shortly afterward. Some people (like me) have to try over and over again before finally hired. And as the time goes by, I just sitting and sleeping and anything repeated over and over again. I'm telling you: that's really BORING.

|I make the illustration everyday.|
|I hang out with my girls (not everyday).|
|I read a lot right before sleeping.|
The worst part of being a long-time unemployee (I hate saying this to myself) is, we start to wonder a lot, more than we can imagine. I wonder if only I applied for a post-graduate scholarship, or started to do some home business, or dare enough to find a job far accross the island, etc. That makes me deppresed (trust me,I know what I say).
But now I'm grateful, because there is no temptation without hikmah. A year before actually having a job is given me many lessons. I became closer to my family, more time to touch my hobbies, more time for worship and even socialize with neighbors.
|Wonder if only..bla bla bla.|
Now all five of my friends have the scholar trial on the same day, have a steady job. Nicky at the bank, Abo at the insurance company, Nidya married, Iwan as QC. Me? Sadly, still a free lancer.
Well Michael Jordan, our favourite basketball player once said,
"I've failed over and over and over again. That's why I'm succeed."
So I think I have to remain optimistic!
