I was dead-set on getting right into a job as soon as I completed my internship. Until I decided to just go for a Master's in whichever field I feel close to my heart. #justdoit

And I chose, Multimedia!

I was on the fence between IMC (Integrated Marketing Communication) and Multimedia. It makes more sense if I stay in my field and go for IMC, but there's no challenge there. It feels too right that it seems wrong. 

Haha!

So, I chose the latter for one and one reason only, I do not want to spend the next 30, 40 years of my life pining over lost opportunity, thinking of what it would be like if I had studied Multimedia. 

It is definitely out of the field of my mastery, but the whole of point of education is to learn, isn't it? So, here I am, dying to learn - learning something new.

But, obviously I can't reason with my mum with such vague arguments. So, I presented it with opinions I gathered from spending six months in FMCG, that I feel are somewhat more reasonable :


1. Digital Shift
Corporate sectors are moving into digital but lacking talents with sufficient knowledge. Digital is now a must, it is no longer an option. This Master's Degree will provide me with an edge to differentiate me when I dive into the talent pool.

2. Multiple Perspectives
I spent years studying business & marketing, and USM had successfully molded me with a marketeer's mindset. But, if I want to improve, I need to be able to understand different angles and to think in various ways. To acquire the skill would require me to migrate from my usual norms. Truth is, #letsflee.

3. Take A Risk
Life is basically, day-in-day-out. Life is already a bore on its own. I need to spice it up a little. The path may not be the safest nor the best, and mum might be worried. Fear not dearest mum because your daughter is a warrior. #makemumproud



Wish me luck!

Hello there!

Good day. 

I'm so close to saying "Nice to meet you", but that is not legit, right? So, good day, it is.

This is a blog that I have kept for years. However, the younger me went ballistic and deleted all my past entries and left this tiny space squeaky clean. And because I'm such a fickle-mind, I went on a platform-hop spree; from tumblr, to wordpress, and now I am back, ladies! That is very sexist, I got it.


A snippet for introduction, I am a twenty-something, very basic girl, and this is the documentation of my life after graduation.
