We all see bloggers taking a few weeks off, leaving their blogs/websites alone and isolated in the overcrowded wasteland of the internet. Once they come back, they apologize and give some totally justifiable reasons for their absence. But I’m not gonna apologize. Why?
BECAUSE I SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED MY MASTERS DEGREE!! THAT’S WHY!!
I just got the final result today in the mail and I’m now officially a Master of Business and Information Technology!
[Word of Caution: The following content may sound a little “braggy”. But dammit I deserve this!]
So where were you exactly these two months?
Oh I was busy finishing up a few projects, getting over a ton of assignments, giving quizzes, preparing for the final academic exams of my life, and NAILING those exams! Boo-Yah!
Well what’s your final CGPA Miss Smarty Pants?
Ah you know, just 3.80. 😉 Nothing big, nothing big. :3
(my country follows the 4 grade point system tho)
What are your plans now? Did you get any job offers? HAH!
Actually I got two really good offers in the past two weeks. One was from my own professor Sir Umer who taught me the course of Enterprise Resource Planning and he runs his own software house – MindWorks Systems. The offer was extremely tempting and an amazing opportunity for me, but unfortunately I had to decline. The other one was from another software house, ICM, and the salary they were offering was pretty nifty. But I declined that one as well.
BUT WHY? I don’t mean this as an insult but are you mentally challenged or something?
Lol no I turned them down for two reasons:
- I want to give some time to a few courses of my own choice right now. I want to invest a little time in the things I WANT to learn, not what I HAVE to learn. Most of all I want to continue sharpening my skills in Graphic Design and Web Dev.
- I’ve spent the last 18 years of my life being a Miss Goody Two Shoes, getting straight A’s, conforming to the system, being constricted within a time table etc. But now I think I deserve a little bit time off for myself. Learn at my own pace and procrastinate without feeling guilty. Go out more and just have FUN without any repercussions. I’ve also stock-piled a shit-ton of movies, bought myself a Netflix subscription, bought and downloaded almost 70 books, and I’m planning to get through all of this in the coming 5 months. After that it’ll probably be time to be serious again. But for now, my only objective for these couple of months is to “Nurture Abeeha.“
So that’s why I was gone for so long. The past few days were a little hard for my tiny cute little brain, because I was trying to figure out what to do with my life. Every graduate goes through this once the studies end. But now that I’ve got a blueprint made out, I’m feeling a lot more relieved and relaxed. In fact, the most relaxed I’ve felt in YEARS. F*ck Adult Responsibilities (for now)!
As for the blog, oh I’m back for good. I’ll be irritating ya’ll with my useless opinion more frequently because I’ve got a lot of free time on my hands now ^_^ And hey, I’m almost about to touch 300 subscribers! Yay!!
It’s so good to be back ❤
