All of a sudden, this question popped out from my mind? Some random people may ask, how do you juggle your work and home life? Well, this is not a tough task actually. I mean, to work + further study + do some household chores. Ok, to be exact, I am a scientist, working from 8 to 5. Yep, being a scientist is not an easy task. It involves critical thinking, how to manipulate variables, statistical analysis which I found tricky, playing with scientific instruments, conducting experiments, facing some obstacles especially when power is down or running out of chemicals and even confronting some pest problem. Then, report writing and paper synthesizing. Plus, dealing with staff and superior attitude. Hey, enough. STAHP whining!!! Ok, noktah.
Being a grad student at the same time is not actually difficult as I chose 'research mode'. No exam is needed. But at the end of the day, I must submit some progress reports. Glad to inform, so far, I have survived. This is my 3rd semester. Another 3 semesters to be completed. *Ya Allah, harap2lah habis semua semester. Kalau kena extend pun, nak buat 1 sem je.*
As a wife, I have to take charge of household chores. My routine starts right after work until I put myself to sleep at 12 midnight. Kalau anda seorang isteri, anda boleh baca di sini. Banyak fadilatnya. But I think being a mom is way tougher. Ramai kawan2 blogger yg sangat komited bekerja dan dalam masa yang sama nak menyusukan bayi mereka sepenuhnya. Ada yang tertekan sebab kekangan kerja menyebabkan kuantiti susu EBM kurang. Sabar ye kawan2. I wonder, when my time comes, would I be as good as them? How strong am I could be? Everything might change. Ye, di situ hikmahnya. Ramai yg bertanya soalan cepumas "Dah ada ke?", "Dah berisi belum?". Biasalah nak tanya apa lagi kat orang yg baru kahwin kan.. Soalan2 tu buat kami stress. Sekarang ni aku dah kembali positif. Allah lebih tau apa yg terbaik untuk kami. Jadi, teruskan berdoa dan usaha ye. I am still trying to conceive. Any tips?
So, macam ni lah cerita 3 in 1 ni. A wife, a grad student and a scientist in action. Lepas ni bila dah ada baby, jadi 4 in 1 pulak. InsyaAllah. I bet, mesti ada yg lebih mencabar dari ni. Pagi ni bersemangat betul nak tulis, sebab my colleagues ramai dah cuti balik kampung. Esok raya! Tapi balik kampung jap je. Hubby needs to go to work this weekend. Till then, Salam Aidil Adha!
|No proper breakfast on a table like nasi lemak, nasi goreng and what-so-ever during weekdays.|
|This is pretty mad for having lab apparatus on my office desk.|
|Ain't that business kill my leisure time. Yes, I enjoy baking during weekend.|
|Newly found hobby: fresh flowers arrangement for home deco.|
|Still, I got time to enjoy Sunday morning walk with hubby.|
|Importante: Walau sibuk sekali pun, Allah jangan kita lupa!|
