A Recent Graduate’s Thought

A couple of weeks before graduation, I could not handle the fear of being jobless. After my junior proceed the responsibility as an editor in chief, I still had no idea what I would become with my upcoming degree. I was questioning myself a lot, literally. Do I deserve to hold the degree? Am I qualified enough to be hired in a company? Or as simple as, how I could feed my hunger and pay the bills.

A couple of months before finishing my thesis, there was a simple chit-chat among us, graduates-to-be. Some feared for not being a good student, thus they assumed they wouldn’t have a chance to be an architect. Some are fed up for being a -DEED, 3D, mockup, maquette, you name it- producer (not designer, hmm).

Not to mention, for those who don’t give a damn for what their future holds. Only a few numbers of my colleagues who truly believe that they would become future architects. My name isn’t on the list, definitely.

I used to plan my life thoroughly, but it turned out failed. I do have the B or C plan, but I barely consider the next moves I should take other than embracing the opportunity. Here I am, working in a state-owned company, neither being an architect nor a journalist, as most of my friends predicted.

I supposed to know the ropes for what I’m currently doing and where my life headed into. But I clearly couldn’t define what those are. Sooner or later things are gonna work well, and time definitely will heal. Finger crossed!

  1. Everyone has its own timeline pal. You may not get to work on what you are passionate about now. But if you preserve the hustle in that direction, I am certain you’ll get it soon. It may not be easy, but would be worth it. 💪
