The Upward Spiral

I’m not sure what to feel about new year. I just hope I would be able to do something. Continue to experience & explore new things & places. I can’t stand monotonous life. It’s just not for me. It makes me feel awkward mentally.  For me life is kinda stop when I stop exploring. I’m still exploring in a way but in a different way. More like exploring knowledge & myself through books & countless articles. Getting more knowledge of any kinds give me sort of satisfaction. I never really realize that knowledge is really that powerful. Previously all I know is that, u need knowledge to pass the exam & that’s it. Talk about Malaysian education system failure at its finest.

Anyway as I wrote in my previous blog entries, I had mention that I’m still trying to figure out a way to prevent depression recurrent. I can’t say that I found it yet but I think I sort of found some ways to deal with it. I read this book called “The Upward Spiral: Using Neuroscience to Reverse the Cou…

Master Degree?? is it worth it?

My answer:

Not worth it..but for my personal satisfaction and achievement, worth it. This answer is not for people who've been sponsored by a university to further their studies to be a lecturer (well they already got the job so no fuss). My studies sponsored by a combination of 3: myself, my dad & MOHE. Some of my friends have express their interest to further studies before so i guess maybe some peeps out there might have the same question too & have difficult time to decide..so (again) this is what i think from my own experience. Before that i wanna tell u my story..the reason why i further my studies is because i don't get any job other than a job as a temporary teacher (good salary with no future no guarantee unless if u really wanna be a school teacher - mind u controlling 13-17 years old students is very difficult plus i was assign to teach some (most) class which consist of studs that have discipline problems). Half day work good salary  etc etc..nah..it is a very tough job..i went back home still feeling stressful..that's the prize. Ok get back to the subject..and another reason why i further my studies is because i wanna get my freedom back. I won't elaborate on tht anyway..haha! I'm more than a half-way through  my studies when i start to realize i might have made a mistake. The time that i'm about to do my thesis is the time when i realize about it.. I have difficult time finishing my thesis and getting out-of -focus and waste a lot of my time doing something else...and money wasted.

So my advice is Further ur studies only when u r really interested in it..if u r not sure..u better don't. A Master Degree won't really help u to get a job..matter of fact i was unemployed for a few months and work as a sales girl (life is difficult) before i was landed a job..and another..all using my degree..here in my place they r not looking at my master so of course no ''master salary''. but a master degree is good for people who live near to big big company that give u big big salary. A master degree will not be a guarantee for u to be a lecturer either bcos i know a lot of people who didn't get this job..except if u wanna be a lecturer in small or medium or known-unknown private college which is hmm. if u wanna get a Phd which of course via a master degree, then i encourage u to further ur studies..very few people have Phd so ur chance to be a star out there is very bright (most probably). But before u do..prepare urself mentally first because it will consume a lot of ur time, ur energy & ur money.
