Study Blues

June 7, 2010

I hate studying.

The working population would probably give up everything to be where I am now.

With supposedly less burden and definitely less politics.

But the grass is always greener on the other side.

Did I already mention how weary studying makes me?

Heaps of papers and never-ending formulaes to make sense of.

Imagine my dismay when the mother says,

“a degree is as common as an O-level cert!”

I doubt it is THAT commonplace yet.

But its well headed in that direction.

Every Tom, Dick and Harry along Orchard Road has this elusive certificate.

“How about you stay in Australia all through Masters?” she says

“No ma, I have a 5 year plan” I replied.

“I will support you all the way” she pushed further.

“Maybe you can get a CFA along the way” she pushed even further.


Did I mention how much I hate studying?

Yeah, I guess I did.
