Today is the 3rd week of my bridging program. Thanks God, I’ve been passed to Telkom’s Scholarship to continue my master degree abroad. Yes, I’m in the middle of gaining master degree in Business in SBM ITB, yet when this chance was coming, I decided to apply and I passed the test. Fortunately, the candidates for scholarship program are given a 3 months bridging program as preparation to admission in university. And here I am, after several test, this becomes one step closer to ‘my dream’.
DREAM … is it really my dream ? Actually, if you asked me 2 or 3 years ago about continuing my study, my answer will definitely will be BIG NO. My bachelor degree didn’t run well, so that it makes me don’t want to go to the further level of study. I talk to my self … IT’S ENOUGH. Let’s focus to collect some money. However, every thing suddenly change when I saw one of my best friend that was becoming MBA Student. He often asked me to accompanying him doing his assignment -even sometimes helping him *fyuuhhh. I found some interesting things in it. And around a year later, in the end of April 2012, I finally chose to apply for MBA. The interesting things that I’ve never expected before is how I enjoy study, even I felt that it’s more attractive than office stuff. And you know … after 1 year as MBA Student, and realized I just have another one year, I feel sad … Learning new things, meet my friends and so on is very enjoyable. And suddenly (again), my office launch a scholarship program for its employee and I’m the one who is lucky to be one of the grantee.
Do you find something interesting (or may be ‘weird’) in my life journey ? If you don’t .. let me give more explanations.
It was around the beginning of 2003, a high school girl who would end her study soon didn’t know which university that she wanted to study, even the major. She had no idea about that. Until in the middle of June, one month before the test is held, she decided to apply for Informatics Major in ITB, just because she got challenge from her tutor to apply for the highest major ranking in Indonesia. She actually never dreamed about that. It just happen until finally she realized that the destiny brought her to this major. year 2007, after graduated from ITB, another confusion was coming. Her study was not going well, actually. She had no idea which job she should take. After one and half year, she was accepted as Telkom Employee which is placed in Bandung, while Telkom Employees spread all over Indonesia. This isn’t stop here. It’s June 2012, when she got new position in HR Division in Telkom Head Office of Japati, the building that she had been seen for several years (she has been lived near Telkom Japati, actually).
Actually I don’t want to call all these experiences is just coincidence. Because I know, the hand of God takes care all of this. But, my point is I never actually plan my journey. It is just like go with the flow, and life brings me to the mysterious road I’ve never expected before. To be honest, I’m the one with no big dream that I plan to pursue ahead. It’s just like live my life and do my best to pass through it. Am I wrong to have ‘short thinking’ like this while it against the ideal perspective like many motivators tell us in such a motivation training, life discussion and etc ?
I write this post in the middle of several thoughts come to my mind. I’ve passed many unpredictable things in my life which makes me wonder, how my next life will be ?
