I'm graduating in the next four months! *gulp* The real life is about to start...now?
So what is next? I just can't sleep well at night knowing I don't have any plans yet for the next few years. It took me awhile to actually explore my options. After all majoring in Economics all I learn everyday is how to plan, what will happen when you fail to plan, blah blah blah. You might say I sound very mata duitan-ish, but hey that is basically everything I learn at school. Can't help it, sorry!
Some of my friends choose to get married ASAP, some of them think degree isn't enough to survive in this challenging world so they choose to stay in school for the next few years, etc etc etc.
So yes now I can sleep better at night knowing what to do next.
But remember we can only plan but Allah/God is the best of planners.
I know some people let their parents plan their life for them, but I took control of my life right after SPM and fully responsible for it. Signing up for almost 1 million contract right after SPM is pretty darn scary. Well... guess what? I did not stick to the plan, I've made few changes for the last few years from the original plan I had in mind but all is good because Alhamdulillah God have better plans waiting for me. ;)
Point is, you don't actually have to stick with your plan but knowing what you are up to for the next few years will definitely help you to live your life better. The key is to be very specific and reasonable. This is a plan, not a dream. You can dream big or go home, but life plan should totally be a realistic one! I'm not going to share my life plans and goals with you guys (it is something very personal okay) but glad to know that now I KNOW what to do next. I already have a plan on when will I buy my first home - realistically. Ok maybe I have gone too far now lol but hey I ain't getting any younger honey!
