Flying to Sydney

Benben is flying off to Sydney this afternoon.

The reason for flying to Sydney this time is to help out a published photographer and be the photography assistant. Then I'm also gonna visit sandcastle to have a chat with the supervisor and director.

Hopefully I will gain heaps from this trip. Oh yeah, friends I met during my internship last September is going back to their respective countries, so it will be fun to catch up with them before they fly far, far away` Who knows when I will see them again. haha.

Anyways, will update in Sydney if I feel like it (or if I have net access) hehe.

Have you ever been so lost???

Mode: Job Hunting.
Status: Semi-jobless graduate
Character: turning bipolar

Being a graduate is tougher than being a full time student. At least in uni, all you have to do is finish up your assignments the day before the due date and then party the rest of the week. Of course, there is the odd job to support your weekly expenses.

Now, you are left in the society, having to fight with gazillions of graduates out there to secure a full time job in the media arts industry... Sometimes I question myself: is it possible?

Maybe as an arts grad, we need to gather heaps of freelance jobs to fill up our 38hours working week.. Then again, is there as many jobs in sound field compared to design and photography.. did I chose the right major.. yada yada yada.. all these things seemed to dawn onto you over night, as if the day you leave uni is the day you have to force feed yourself with "grow-me-up-overnight pills"..

Yes, I am lost. I went to uni to realize that I learn a very broad spectrum of media arts and in the end I am jack of all trades, master of none. What am I actually?? Perhaps I should have just studied a finance degree in uni or did something like media and communications.

Blah, this is just a phase hopefully.. I have a lot of free time on my hand.. watch this space as I will start to bombard with random ramblings of mine again. So if you'll excuse me, I will go make myself a cuppa and do nothing for the whole day. Till next time~
