"You get to do what you want. You're studying something you love!"
Of course I am grateful.
"How do you do it?"
Hardly sleep. Lots of eye makeup to cover them dark circles. No weekends. No life. But then again, being the hermit that I am, this was easy.
"You will not waste this, right?"
When I graduate. Hopefully not. Even if I don't get be a cool FX engineer and work on Lord of the Rings, I will find a use for me.
"What do you want to do when you graduate?"
I am not sure. I really am not sure. I am lapping up the high of just being in the know. So I will ride this while I am at it.
"You've finished a full academic year? That's fast. You could've been idling the year or you could do this..."
Yes, ma. Now will you please say you will come for my convocation after I graduate next year?
Sometimes I sit in my study and I can't believe how surreal this is. One year ago, I was useless, putting too much energy into work, that don't love me back. Haha.
