Hidupku kini, rupanya gini #pantun2kerat

Assalamualaikum wbt

I don't know how to start this, but oh well.
Awkward intro shall be awkward.

It has been 2 years since i've been working as an engineer.

Honestly, it's not easy, but it's not hard either.
It's not easy because it's a lot like law maybe. Banyak refer old documents, spec sheets, catalogues, emails, minutes of meetings, old project docs, just so that whatever project the team's doing, takde kena backfire ke salah order barang ke blablabla.
It's not hard because it's something familiar. Like using autocad, procedures. And errrr... For now itu je i boleh come up with. Gosh, noob nya.

Earlier this year, i applied for masters program and i thought i wouldn't get it. Coz i kinda applied late..
Sampai letter kat rumah, and walauwehhh! I've been accepted to Hogwarts!!!

I wish.

I was accepted to UPM's master program in engineering management. alhamdulillah =)

Takde la pape sangat. Mula mula thought of doing research program, but i was very intrigued by the course subjects. Ada business related courses tu, i loike. Hehe!

So anyway, alhamdulillah, i am now a working student.

It has been a month since, and my routine changed drastically. What with four classes a week, after work, i go to class, after 3 hours of learning, some days i ada class rohaniah, some days i balik terus. Other non-class days, i ada tuition class and class class lain gak. oh, and my other part time jobs. like modelling, giving talks and stuff..

Most of the time i will have dinner in the car.
Either tapau siap2 from home, or buy burger kat tepi jalan, or buy snacks from petrol station.

And most days i reach home very late. So yeah.
Sometimes after work, i get really tired and in class, i admit, it's not easy to stay focused. Many times i have to force myself out of my stupor by conteng sana sini, gi toilet jap, and good thing classes ada breaks for maghrib prayer! Helps a lot, that does. Sometimes i wonder how my classmates yang working pun can stay focused in class.. Hope i can be like them soon!!

My brain condition (sometimes), kalau nak dicartoonkan la, at work, it's quite active
During classes and stuff...

at the end of the day..

Motip sangat pengsan bibir terus plump kan. Haha!

But then, there are some nights when even after a long day of work + studying + learning, my brain still nak active. which i see as something good la. gives me time to read my books =)

It's a challenge, for now.
But in sha Allah, i will get used to this new routine. Because as usual, all new things will someday be a normal thing and we'll look back and wondered "eh, aku dah ok dah? Bila aku ok ek?" Hehe!

Taken at upm's engineering faculty. Wearing al-raqia's awesome shawl. After work, so muka mmg belacan.

Taken at the same place on my saturday class and (this) ipad is the reason why im updating more frequently. And because blogging sort of makes me feel better.
Im not sure why but i suspect it's because i have more untold stories which i just need to blurt somewhere. And le peliks is the best place for blurting out =p

At first i didnt want to blog about this pun. Didn't think it would interest anyone pun what goes on in my personal life. As long as i tau, dah la kan.

So then, why you blog this maria mercedes?
Because i met two girls at campus, and they asked me why i didnt tell ppl about it, and because im too lazy to answer the same questions over and over again. Might as well make it official.
yes, kak maria is mastering.

eh eh.

Sape sape yang tanya susah ke belajar sambil keje, well, baca la betul betul k dari atas sampai bawah.
Maybe can give u a lil' insight.
Im not discouraging, im just saying it takes time to get used to.

For me, it's a struggle for now, tapi in sha Allah next year, it will be a bit lighter to handle coz instead of being an engineer, i'll be......
Your crying shoulderrrr, i'll beeee loves suicideeeee
I'll beeee better when i'm olderrrr, i'll beee the greatest fan of your liiiifffeeeee~

No, coz i'll be a wife.
In sha Allah

May Allah swt permudahkan urusan urusan ku, dan juga urusan urusan harian mu ;)


ps: i have test later. my first ever test this sem. feels good to be back, school.

PPS YANG CAPSLOCK: I HAVE TO THANK MY MAMA FOR HANDLING MY WEDDING PREP! i think i only did 1/20 of the job. so don't ask me about my wedding coz seriously, im not so sure what it's going to be like. i just want to be a wife. haha! i'm very confident mama knows better than me about what's best anyway =) MAMA ROCKS!!

Kk Maria, saya suka baca entry kali ini, sangat memberikan inspirasi, skarg saya dh berumur 22 taun tp dah kerja, kerja staff je, after read your entry, saya terbuka pikiran nak sambung study, if God willing next year saya mulai belajar, slama ini saya tak terpikir nak sambung belajar sbb dah kerja, tapi after i read blog orang2 yang bereducated diorang bagi nasihat agar belajar la selagi masih ada kesempatan.,
saya harap dapat belajar lagi.

have a bless day Kk Maria.
