25.09.2009 | 世事難料

細個嘅時候, 大家肯定寫過唔少關於「我的志願」嘅作文.. 嚟嚟去去都不外乎係醫生/律師/工程師/科學家呢啲(慣例)專業人士.. 但係有幾多人係真正實現兒時理想職業呢??

暫且唔講作文寫乜嘢志願, 因為都有得你話「作」啦嘛.. 就講中學畢業要決定自己行邊一條路, 當時有諗過平面設計或者建築.. 結果陰差陽錯, 跟大隊去咗讀電子工程, 係好大一個偏差, 不過最後又順利畢業仲得一等文憑, 唔係搞笑.. 然之後踏入社會工作, 又係無端端就入咗IT呢一行喎, 同我讀嘅嘢完全無關, 就係咁一路喺呢一行做到而家成10年咁耐..

果然唔係我當時所預料到架噃.. 所以話世事唔絕對, 隨時都會有變化, 唔知將來嘅我又會唔會有咩大轉變呢??
i am sure many of us have written quite a number of compositions on the topic "My Ambition" during school days.. and by no much deviation from the standard (preferred) profession doctors, lawyers, engineers, scientists etc etc.. but come to think about it, how many of us have now really fulfilled that dream we used to have back then??

put aside those ambitions as they are just "fictitious homework" you need to do.. let's talk about what you were deciding to go for when you were about to graduate from school.. i have intention to pursue either graphic design or architecture then, but out of nowhere i suddenly followed the gang to go after electonics engineering.. totally different from what i have in mind, but thank god i was able to complete my degree smoothly, and with a first class no joke!! and after graduation, i got a job in the IT line surprisingly, nothing to do with what i've been studying all that while.. and now that i've been working in this line for like 10 years long..

so that's something i have never expected in schooldays.. life is just unpredictable, you won't know what you're going to get next.. i wonder will there be any major changes in my future??

  2. Yay! I can still remember that! I think I wanted to be a policeman when I grow up. Hahahaha :D

    But after I completed my high school, I wanted to study medicine...but to my parents disagreement! Then I took up something else in local university! Something I love very much.

    But after graduation. I choose something different! ;)

  9. 我係讀IT依家都係做IT,所以算係學以致用吧?!不過做咗咁多年,都有啲悶。曾經想過轉行,但係最後都敵唔過現實。

  10. I like computer stuffs, but I didn't follow that path cause that time, there were too many IT graduates in the market already.

  12. It's not uncommon to hear of people working in completely different line to what they have studied.

    I have a desire to switch too :)

  13. there is no predictibility of life after form 5 hahahaha.....you can dream but more of than not, they remain as dreams and some of us, like me, are still dreaming...is that a bad sign? hahahha....

  16. Tekkaus:
    haha, policemen?? i think you've watched too much series on TV back then?? so from policeman to doctor to now what?? anyway, as long as you are loving your job, i think that's good enough.. let the young dreams back then be, hahaha!! nothing to be proud of, 1st class or dean list, we still come out to work with the same pay right?? hahaha~~ :)

    孤傲的王子:
    hmmm, you only working for 1 year, i've been working for like 10 years!! i think it's still OK for you to make a change, since it's still not late.. but make sure you are changing to something you really want for.. :)

    Wois:
    對囉, 真的是錯誤的觀念.. 那時好像只有寫醫生律師工程師這些, 才可以拿到高分.. 如果寫比較偏們的, 老師都會比較不喜歡的.. :D

  17. L²:
    oh is it?? i can't really remember i wrote this before?? i only remember i wrote something about the "My Ambition" composition thing only leh.. haha :D hmmm, i have have no idea about the train, even if i could see the Putra from my room, i have no idea what time they stop moving :p

    khengsiong:
    你以前梗係睇好多衛斯理小說定喇, 哈哈!! 可是科學家都OK嘅, 日日蘊喺間實驗室入邊與世無爭.. 其實都可以做大學教授架, 我覺得做教授好喎..

  18. 海市蜃樓:
    OK啦, 至少你係行返自己計劃嘅方向, 做IT都幾好嘅其實.. 你想轉行?? 你做咗幾年工喇?? 的確要三思而後行啊, 男人最怕就係入錯行喎.. :)

    Legolas:
    hmmm, so what are you doing now?? anyway you don't necessarily needs to go into IT if you like computer stuffs right?? or perhaps you can go into being a scientists?? haha.. :D

    LAURENCE:
    哈哈, 我記得好像沒次都會有不同的志願.. 曾經寫過醫生, 教師, 工程學, 科學家, 作家, 律師.. 很多很多可能性啦.. 所以說那些都是作的, 現在沒有一個實現.. :p

  19. Mei Teng:
    hmmm, but for me it's like forever not matching with what i've thought or done, anyway at least i still enjoy doing what i'm doing now.. wow, a switch?? but i bet it will be a minor switch?? :)

    manglish:
    yeah you are right, nothing's predictable after you have graduate as we were still in the "searching" stage back then.. anyway, it's no harm to have dreams at all, just that we at the same time must realise what the reality around us is.. :)

    Grass:
    fooyoh!! i love your quote here.. can i use that?? no copyright one hor?? kekekeke :)

  23. It's true. I've forgotten everything from school and I feel my tertiary education was a farce. LOL. That's IT for ya.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's life. The fun is in not knowing what's to come next. And the ideal is to be in something you love best though in most cases, we are always still searching for the best. We are never satisfied, eh? Or are we plain fickle?

    Nice picture.

  25. Now I'm wondering what will happen to me after I complete my degree... Wait, what kind of degree I will get... First Class or Lousy class also don't know :(

  26. 世事无绝对,买"燕梳"都未必有得赔啦!既然洗湿个头,就抱住个敬业乐业既心态咯!将来既事将来先至算!忧虑越多越无可能放胆去做!人家博晒命跑一百米,我地拍马都追唔上啦,系唔系?哈哈!祝你好运!

  32. 海市蜃樓:
    嘩, 有13年咁耐架喇!! 老實講, 到而家先嚟到轉行, 的確有啲遲, 而且風險仲好大添.. 多一事不如少一事喇 :)

    Chin Weng 茶先生:
    原來你也是E&E工程一等文憑, 呵呵, 大家一家人哦.. 你想做其他東西咩?? 不如去做蛋糕啦, 開一間麵包店自己當老闆.. :p

    Freedom09:

  33. William:
    hahaha, but that doesn't really matter now right?? as long as you like what you are doing now, and there's future that you can see for yourself, i think it's just fine.. :)

    HappySurfer:
    yeah, if everything is just so predictable, then this cannot be called a life right?? haha.. and i agree with you, as long as we are happy then it should do us fine.. well, as for forever searching for something better.. you can see it in two different angles, one is likewise you say not satisfied, another one is to seek improvements and fulfilment.. :)

    Jerry:
    well, no worries but just try you best to get the best result you can achieve lor.. when you come out to work, a first class and a third class actually doesn't make any difference to your boss.. you still learn from ground zero.. haha :)

  34. edward:
    哈哈, "燕疏"就梗係儘量咩都唔賠啦!! 不過我又唔係話唔鐘意做呢一行, 我OK架, 而且一做就成10年咁耐, 而家都係第二間公司咋.. 雖然係世事難料, 不過已經學識點樣去見步行步啦.. :)

    the happy go lucky one:
    haha, so i think now you should try to enjoy more since it's in your comfort zone.. but are you gonna be like that forever?? hmmmm, that's a good question to yourself actually.. all the best anyway :p

    凡人館長《志強 cHeeKeOng》:
    對囉, 其實每一份工作都一樣有它的好壞喇.. 所以就是看個人如何看待罷了, 只要不太過強求, 工作開心生活愉快, 就很好了喇.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Amy:
    可能吧, 我不是一個很執著的人, 所以很多時候都會欣然接受, 見步行步囉.. 還蠻樂觀的吧??

    Kai and Baobei:
    hey, long time no see.. well, i have thought of being a scientist or astronauts too.. anyway likewise you say, it's always unpredictable, you may not know what will happen next.. so what i think more important is, to be happy with the present.. :)

    KY:
    hahaha, i think it's not too late you go back to become a pilot?? since you have had lots of FFK experience, am sure that would help to expedite things?? hahaha.. wow, pilot woh, then can always bring Chris to overseas with your plane.. :p

  49. SK Thamby - You definitely made your ancestral indian villagers proud of your success! 1st class honours is not an easy feat as you had to maintain a certain criteria for so long. Arumugam is talking from his own experience too.

  50. I wanted to be an architect cos when I was a kid, I shocked my mum with my kiddie drawings of houses! They were big bungalows with sunlit roofs, helipad, free form swimming pool, hanging gardens like babylon, Picasso tiles and macam macam. In the end, they enrolled me into advertising becos of my mouth.
