what about my future?

Time sure flies by. Without even noticing I have only 2 and a half more working days before my holiday resumes. That, plus another 50-pages report for my industrial training which is due early next week (damn, I should've suggested a later date to my supervisor).

It has been extremely educational in the past 8 weeks, learning plenty of stuff I didn't have the chance to put my hands on back in my own uni. This also presented a new path for me to choose; whether or not to continue doing my master and phd programme after I graduated. I know it's pretty early to think about this right now, but people around me have been bombarding me with these questions I find it hard to dismiss the possibilities. Besides, it's true what some of them said, when you're already in the working world you won't want to go back studying.

In an ideal world, I'll do my master degree after half a year working as a research assistant, preferably overseas, and within a year and a half hopefully it'll be converted into phd. Then I'll come out and work as a lecturer for a few years before venturing into the business world. I have given some thoughts on it, since I don't believe I will enjoy being an employee for my entire working life, and F & B is one sector which I have really made some serious thinking of.

Dreaming a nice dream indeed.

All too soon to say, for now I'll just concentrate on my final working week here and finishing my report. I have been procrastinating a hell lot.
