Bachelor

It's really really a late post, since my graduation was last year. November 26 was a memorable day of my life time. I finally graduated from university. Feels like yesterday I wrote a blog post about passing the national university entrance examination and I was soooooo happy about that. Then, I've passed the tough years of my college life (exactly 4 yrs and 2 mos). Things have passed, exams, tasks, visiting media tour, fights, polemics, organizations, events, GPA, scores, punishments, and more and more.

D-2 Grad-day, we did a pre-grad photo session and my face was breaking out so bad

So, I just started my thesis on early January 2016, I've struggling on this for around 9 months. People say that everybody's got a different struggles on finishing their thesis, and I got my own struggles. Some were easily wrote their thesis and got acceptance from their supervisor lecturers but hard on their exam. Me is the opposite. It's hard for me to meet my supervisors lecturers where they're so busy, but thank God, my examiners lecturers admire my thesis.


Btw, my thesis is about the organizational strategy of aviation security on handling airport security interference. If you are a communication stud who need reference for thesis (exactly in organizational/corporate communication study), you can ask me and I'll send the soft copy of my thesis to you. I'll be glad to help you :)

And for you who ask "how is the graduation feels like?", I'll say: IT'S NOT AS HAPPY AND SPECIAL AS YOU THINK BEFORE. You may feel so relieved after your final exam and you're declared PASSED the exam, but the next day, it's nothing but you still have to work for your thesis revision deadline, and deal with bureaucracy in your university to arrange things before your graduation. It's really complicated here in my univ, Andalas Univ (I think almost every state university in Indonesia are the same).


And the most frustrating thing about graduation is......... what to do after that. I knewwwww we should get a job after it, but getting a job that really fit for you is REALLY HARD. We all know it's just about luck and sustenance that you have. Some people may graduate and get a job so easily while someone else's got so hard. Other people (also my BF) said that I'm too picky in searching for a job because of "my passion" they said I have to try any kind of jobs because I'm just a fresh graduated and only have a bachelor degree, also I'm just a women. So I'm just asking "is it wrong if I try to follow my heart and my passion?"

Btw, this kebaya and the skirt was designed by myself :) and I do a simple makeup by my self cause I don't wanna look too much for grad-day.

Sure, I want to get a job, not only because I feel discouraged cause my friends already got a job, but I want to develop my skill and work in my passion. I want a job that wouldn't make me work a day in my life, a job that letting me to pour my idea and creativity there. Does that kind of job exist? YES.

YOU JUST HAVE TO FIND YOUR PASSION THAT MAKES YOU FEEL EMPOWERED WHEN YOU DO THINGS, AND WORK IN PLACE WHERE YOU CAN FOLLOW IT.


In the end I still want to thank everyone that have been support me all the time (esp my mom, I love you), and THANK YOU ANDALAS !!
