    The Oak Garden Building | Short Story 2021

    As I gaze out my window at the sky while watching my children sleep,  the brisk winds remind me of a building that I once lived in,  wherein I saw, sensed, and were horrified,  an encounter with which I'm not comfortable speaking.  Fortunately, everything turned up okay. My name is Herman, but my friends called me Er, and the following is a story of what occurred to me 23 years ago. I have had a passion for writing since a kid. Now my guardian thinks I can go even farther. Consequently, they help me submit an authorship application and enrol in further linguistic, writing, and journalistic courses. Little did I realise that I'd be given a job to help me improve my abilities while simultaneously taking part-time writing courses to support my income. I was a young twenty-year-old at the time. Too young, yet inquisitive and willing to try new things. As a young author, the chance pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and acquire essential experience.  Pay attention to the sound

    What it feels like to continue a higher level of study? -

    I never thought of continuing my study at a higher level, and I never expected to make it through. Recently, I'd passed my Viva and soon will be graduated. I don't think I can make it through, but it turns out I made it.

    What it feels like to continue a higher level of study? -

    Where to begin with?

    I am not bragging about how proud I am or how good I am in the study. Well, to be honest, there's a lot of things that I will prefer saying hard work on in making your dream come true. When I look back on the previous years, here what people didn't see.

    The hardship, problems, and emotions throughout years of studying, the tears, pressure and some more of it, you never know unless you are in that situation. Here are some of it;
    • I never had a remarkable achievement in school.
    • I don't know almost everything.
    • I learn all from the below.
    • I waste so much money.
    • I am still learning.

    What is the biggest challenge?

    I had no money and had to borrow some from my parents to pay for the fee, and it's not an easy thing, especially we're not from a first-class family.

    When I decided to study at the age of 25, I was actually afraid of being compared. When you chose to learn, you have to be sacrificed several things (that we called fun). 

    At some point, I wanted to give up and stop. I almost made up my mind, stop and find a job, satisfies everybody feels. But then, I remember how much money my parents help me with and how supportive my family is. So, I continue and work hard on it.

    What you should prepare to continue to a higher level of study?

    To be honest, there's a lot of things you need to be prepared for. But here are some basic of it;
    1. Prepare your mind, be strong. It is not the same as taking a degree. For a Master's or PhD, especially research, you are in your own way.
    2. Money. Pay the tuition, the cost, and the materials you use for your research. But if you can apply for a grant or student financial aid, it would ease your burden.
    3. Make a friend. It is a crucial thing to get along with your colleagues, especially at the moment where you feel like giving up.
    4. See your supervisor. Get along with your supervisor; he/she is the one who will help you with your thesis.
    5. Keep going on. At one point, you will felt alone and pressure with your thesis, time, and surrounding you. Remember one thing, you choose this path, finish it, and never gave up.
    Hey, I know school is the place where your day might get busy, it's better to have an organisational book, so you could plan on your day, and here some idea of it, you can get a Planner Book super cute and easy to bring everywhere. It has weekly planning on it, so you can list down your plan for the whole week in just a day. 

    What are the things that make me want to give up?

    Some question or word came from people, and that word came especially from people who know you. These question might seem normal, but to be honest, words can be so harsh, and people don't become aware of it. Here is the question that can be considered sensitive;

    You are wasting your time and money.
    You work hard on the study, but still no job?
    My kids are even better at having a good job compared to you.

    Words either can be constructive or destructive. I feel at a loss because people keep criticising you, and they don't know how many wounds the words affected on that person. It's hurt until you want to give up, but you just have to keep moving.

    At least you are happy doing the thing that you love. People might don't understand the choice you made. Hey love, if the things you do make you happy, then do it. Why bothers what anybody else thinking, right?

    So, I just let it go and continue to struggle in the study; at the end of it, I made it. 

    What is my reason to continue to study?

    I don't do that to satisfy people or get credit for it. At first, I find that it's an opportunity, but when I learn throughout the years, it's crazy, and sometimes I wanted to give up. The study is at least the best thing I can do, and from that, you learn more than just about your research.

    I grow myself from it; I learn to level up my thinking, writing, research, not just in terms of academics but also in dealing with my stress. During my study period, it made me think that there are many things that I don't know, and I need to explore and dig in and learn about them.

    The more I learn, the more I realise that I am nobody, too many things yet to be explored. 

    You do what you love. As you go along with the journey, you will find that you learn many things without noticing them. Enjoy the process, enjoy your hard work; it well worth it.

    What it feels like to continue a higher level of study? -


    For those of you who want to continue the study, go for it. Even you feel being left behind compared to your other friend, at least you find things that you love and enjoy doing it. Who says it will be easy? None of our choices is easy; those who work encounter their problems every day, and you who study having the same trouble but different situation. Everyone has their own challenges in what they choose. It's a matter of you can handle it or not. Nevertheless, don't give up too soon; you have to keep going.

    How the conversation started 12 years ago |

    There's a quote says by a famous person, "If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana. Twelve years ago, I had a crush on one person. He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college. At the age of 18, I got an offer to school away from my hometown.  Because I kept my feeling for so long, sometimes when I return to my hometown for a semester break, I will give him a present. Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
