After a long time, finally I dare myself to write again. It’s been 3 years since my last post in this blog. Lately, I’ve been thinking to much about myself, about my past and also my future *of course.
I’m thankful to God who gave me this wonderful life. Sometimes, I worried about what people will think about me if I too much write or exposed about myself in this blog. And then, I realized that is not really important to overthinking about that. As long as you happy and you do a positive one for your self (at least), just do it. Haters gonna hate, anyway.
Actually, it is part of my practise on writing in english. So, Pardon my grammar. 🙂
I would be happy if there is someone who help to correct my grammar in this blog. You’ll find a lot, I think.
In the last 3 years, I have so many story to share on this blog. I met with so many new friends and got so many new experience. From my last note, I told you that I worked in Ipsos, right? Actually, now, I’ve been working in Nielsen in the last 3 years. I still continue my career as a researcher and probably still enjoy it. I still like the environment of Marketing research industry and think that I need to learn more about “marketing” and “research”. But, you know guys, I’m just an ordinary human who also can get bored. 🙂
Living as a researcher not as easy and as happy that I said in the previous blog. We had to work overtime to meet a deadline (almost everyday), convinced our client if they’re angry when we gave them a bad news, made a priority when you have so many things to do in a week and so on. Sometimes, you also have to work on the weekend to finish your report (sometimes?really?).
Regardless all the bad things I said above, I never regret it. Because I found and learned so many things from MR. Looks like I really a passionate one. :p
It is not only about the research, but I found some interesting about people who related in my job. I’m kind of someone who easy to get insipire by others people. Yes, I like to understanding and learn about people, try to find some insight why they do this and that. Maybe that’s why I still here, working as quantitative research in Consumer Insight team. LOL.
I found so many unique and inspiring people who worked in MR. At the first time I think those who like research will be someone nerds like wearing glasses, excellent in numbers and good at theorical things, introvert, loves book, not so adaptable and so on. It is all not really right. I found so many fun and amazing people in MR, but of course those weird is also there. 🙂
Actually, I am not really confident about myself, since I just really ordinary person who came from a very small village in Jambi. I just got an education from ordinary public school with minimum facility, graduated as statistician with a standard GPA. But, I believed my parents tried their best to make me as I am right now. What I have is the positive spirit to do all my best when I do everything.
So, after working for almost 5 years, I’m asking to myself, is it really something that I like?Can I continue to life like this?what will happen to me in the next 5 years? So many questions come up.
Sometimes, I got bored and a tired with my job, I felt like I don’t wanna do this anymore. I found that everybody’s changing, my friends getting married, having children, some of them got a scholarship overseas, travelling around the world, whats about me? Looks like I need to review myself. After thinking, sleepless a couple night, finally I decided to do a new things. I want to make a new dream, not really new actually, since I’ve ever thinking about this before. Yeah, I want to became a better person, I want to study overseas, get my master’s degree. Challenge myself.
I know it will not easy, but I believe thats possible. The first things I wanna do is to improve my English skills. So, here I am, practise and learn again. It will never too late to study, right? Hopefully, someday, my dream comes true. 🙂
