Back to School

It has been almost a week since I started school. A mixture of feelings, I had, for going back to school. A sense of familiarity with the environment yet a bit foreign towards the books.

Just last week, on my very last day of official work, I wasn’t having any form of excitement towards this sabbatical leave to further my studies. One week after, I am still not used to this emptiness within. It is not about the luxury of not having to work during weekdays. It is all about the unknown factors that are frightening.

I was re-capping the days back in my undergraduate days and expected this 9 months to be exactly the same or almost similar. However, it really isn’t the case.

Right from Day 1 of class, it dawned on me that my 6 years of working experience on post contract management ain’t going to help in any of my modules for this semester.

The lack of knowledge and experience in various domains are worrying.

This is not going to be easy.


One thought on “Back to School”

  1. Least it means there’s vast knowledge out there to acquire rather than I already know all these what am I here for 🙂 Curiosity hat on, hard-working diligent cap on & chiong-ahh! 🙂 Retracing back to my 1st week of graduate course, I felt like I can no longer ‘save the world’ and needed to reframe my thinking to, ‘equip myself with the skills and hope they will be of some help to others’ 🙂 Managing expectations is definitely the way to go 🙂 You’re on track. Jia you oh^^
