When I was in school I thought I’d become a nun after class X if I didn’t qualify for government school in class XI. That ‘nun’ subject never surfaced again because I did qualify.
After ISC when I didn’t qualify for Sherubtse College I had to opt for diploma. Though the course really helped me a lot I wasn’t satisfied with my qualification. These days a bachelor’s degree is the minimum qualification in the job market.
I remember my diploma days in RIM when I felt so small in presence of the post-graduate students down there. That was when I decided that I need a degree too if only to boost my ego.
Well now that I have it, I see most people going for masters. Many people I know are either in the US or Canada or Australia and yet again I am starting to feel small with those people with Masters onto their credentials.
One week in office and I am already longing to do masters but my chances this time is very slim since I am not a civil servant but a corporate employee. With the help of my dear sister I have already started enquiring about the IELTS exams which is one of the basic requirements for pursuing any master’s course.
If I ever get to do Masters would be I satisfied then? Or would I want to do PhD then? Are we ever satisfied with what we have?
