“Yuriko Sonambela and Kartika Ika Pratiwi, both of you are passed the examination with a very satisfy grade by examiners.” The moderator closed the session by tapping the table three times at Wednesday, Nov 19th 2008. Huff… Both of us are smiling. It was a long and hectic day. It took much preparation and efforts. It took much help from family, lecturer, friends, and more. We closed the day with smile and hope.
Finally, Yuriko Sonambela, ST. Not bad… “ST” will look great at my wedding invitation (please don’t ask when).
Feel happy? Of course I am. It took 5 years effort (I know-I know… 4 years normally. I am outstanding. Puas?)
Satisfied? Not really. The amount of Indonesian unemployment citizen are just rising because of me.
Breathe freely? Of course! Do you think I’m asthmatic???? (manage you manner!)
Then, what next? Is it special? No, it is not. Thousands scholars graduate every year. I’m just one of them. What makes me special? That’s the point. I have to have “something” more that other (something = capability, talent, skills, etc.) that will make me special. You know, graduation is not an achievement. It is the beginning of the rivalry world, to verify of your capability and maturity. I’ve planned my life well, short-term and long-term objectives have been drafted and keep on schedule until this time. But, actually, I think I’m not ready to face this stage. I am worry now. Should I keep riding on my objectives or should I adjust or change it? I don’t know….. I’m doubt. I am less of preparation to face this battle.
