Coming to fac at 8.30 a.m. during the weekdays has been a habit now. I met quite some people that I know in fac now and then. Whenever I bumped into some acquaintances, close enough to call them my friends, this conversation would come into live.
Friends : hey.
Me : hi *smiling*
Friends : haven’t completed your thesis?
Me : Submitted already.
Friends : huh?! Why are you still here?
Me : I am doing research for my prof.
Friends : oh, master…
Me : not exactly
Friends : I thought you submitted thesis. what then?
Me : research for just a couple of months
Friends : going to take master?
Me : I’ll consider after the research
Friends : then? Looking for job?
Me : yeah
Friends : you get pay for research ah?
Me : yeah, RA’s salary
Friends : not bad wert
Me : *smile*
Yep, I am currently doing research for my prof. No, the salary is not high. Yes, it just a temporary job.
I kinda enjoy what I am doing right now. I can do whatever pleases me as long as I produce results. It also gimme the time to slowly search for job that I want. It gives me too much freedom to do what I desire, which is perfetto 🙂
I have long lunches, where I spend 20 minutes eating and the rest of the time reading novels and looking for jobs and walking up and down. I can go back early when I finish the job for the day. The title is even nicer to say or merely to hear it: research engineer. Lols
I got lonely sometimes though. I comprehend, this is just a process, a stage where things change, I hope for good. *fingers crossed* I somehow feel that I wasn’t as lazy as I used to be. I am more determined now. I somehow see a direction or goal in life, but very vaguely. I hope the mist that blurred my visions can disappear soon.
