Can we take a ride? Get out of this place while we still have time.

So we all have less than a week left, then we're leaving 2010 behind. Honestly, 2010 feel like a real life, and that's because it is. It's all work with a little play, but that's a real life - you know the real world mixes fun and responsibility.

As some of you may have known, my 6 months study leave will be started in January 2011. The reason behind this is that I realized there are moments in life that you need to slow down a little. If you don't, the rest of the world will go on without you, as it has been doing for a very long time. So I will be unassigned, and will be focused on my thesis.. and it means here comes the days where I find myself not remembering the difference between yesterday and a week before because I'm not working. Ha! For the next 5 days, I'm still working at the office but then I'll be a post grad student studying student's life again.

I complained a lot about this craziness in 2010. Living two lives as a full time employee and a part-time student totally turn my world upside down. But for some people, getting a right job is a dream. Going to post grad school is a dream, too. I should've known that. I should've known that at the end of day, it is going to be a great 'experience' and I'd recommend it to anyone, even though need to warn you that your body will smell like pee for the next 2 years. I think it teaches people a lot about themselves, too.

Looking back now, I have made a lot of mistakes both in office and school. But what else am I supposed to do at 23 years old? If I'm not going to do dangerous things like drink 5 glasses of coffee in 12 hours, when am I ever going to do them? ;)
