A Call for Interview

I’m feeling rather nervous now. There’s an interview tomorrow afternoon in Penang Island. It’s the first time I actually think that... maybe working in Penang or in my hometown BM isn’t what I really wanted. For all this while I’ve been hoping to work in Penang, though I’m quite alright to work in KL, too, if I could get a job I like there. If you’ve followed this blog long enough, you’d probably think that I don’t really like big cities, because I can’t feel like I belong here, because I dislike the crazy nonhuman life there, because I can’t see a star at night. That there’s always more love for Penang. That I know there’s a responsibility to work for my home state. Yet, now I begin to wonder if this is really what I want to do with my life.

As I received a call for interview 45 minutes before my exam, I told myself that I’m not going for it because I haven’t even finished my exam! Yet right after the paper, I decided to make use of my speed-packing skill and rush back to Penang. With God’s grace I managed to reach home by 2:30am. And thanks to my parents who were willing to stay up and waited for me to pick me up from bus station. Now can you see the reason I want to work in my hometown badly? Anyway, the interview will be in Penang Island. And I’m from the mainland. I do have a bit trouble travelling there. But my principle is still: just clench your teeth and do it la! That’s what I told myself as I rush to Plaza Rakyat and bought ticket on the spot, without thinking about anything else. Anyway (man, this post is really messy) transportation wise is quite a problem. I’ll take this interview as an experience then, for future interviews. Oh, by the way, I also received an interview letter from SPA (the government), at the same day I receive the call for this Penang interview. Haha, very coincident and out of sudden, right?

It’s getting late. Sigh, I need a boyfriend chauffer who can drive me around. Anyone?

If takut tak dapat kerja, maybe that's a good enough reason not to go vacation first. But I do have a vacation plan coming. Just a decent Lang Tengah trip with some of my close friends :)
