Assalamualaikum. It is no longer a rumour, no longer a myth, no longer a tale, no longer a "I think ... " but it is now a reality, a fact. This Friday is going to be the big day. GCE 'A' Level results will be released at 2.30 p.m. To be frank, I am worried and scared. I just hope that my results will be good enough to get me a seat in the local universities or better. InsyaAllah. I must really take my time to think about the next step that I am going to take after the 'A' levels. I don't care if it is going to take me years to think about it. I do not want to regret. It is going to be my future. I am keeping my options open.
It is true that passion keep you going strong in whatever you are doing but this little thing called "passion" is something ephemeral. It is not ingrained in us and one should not just think about his/her passion when it comes to make a decision for our future. Things like job prospect, stability in that career and etc are important factors. Everyone wants to be happy. And to some, doing what you like and doing things that you have passion in makes you happy. Well, I beg to differ. If you are doing what you like most and can only earn $500 per month, will you be happy. Yes, some will eagerly say that they will surely be happy because they are pursuing their passion. Hahahaha Bullshit! You can say this for like a month or two but what about after 10 months doing it? Nonsense lah
. Some of you might accused me being materialistic or what, but please wake up people. Don't think by just pursuing your passion, you will be happy and satisfied. How long can that passion last? If you keep on thinking about making decisions based just on your passion, then maybe you can start studying a new subject or going back to school every time your passion reach its expiry date.
It is not that I am against the idea of the pursuit of passion thing but glorifying the fact that you are going to do something just because of your everlasting (as if) passion, I think it is stupid when you do so while putting all other factors aside. It is not as if you rule the world or that you are immortal that you can just decide on anything without thinking about any other factors beside the "mighty" passion. Time is not going to wait for anyone. Be realistic people. Think far ahead. Let it be a second, a minute, an hour, a year, a decade or whatever. Hey people, please give credit to your brain. THINK!
Well, this is just my humble opinion.
