Here I am in a library where everyone is studying and I am browsing my web and responding to my email. I am no longer the student that spend so much effort to study because studying is just a portion of life. And that portion of life is not transferable when it comes to work.
The only things that got brought over from UBC is my soft skills- the research techniques and professionalism learned from a business class. It is funny that curriculum isn't as helpful as real life experience. From the many things I learned is how to manage a project on my own because I am lucky that all of my managers love handing me project and let me figure out. And you know, when that happens, it is really call figure it out. It is unlike the assignment - you have the do this and get that result, then do another step. What is your goal? The answer is passed all my courses. Oh, how fortunate it is to be a student.
Now, I am also studying but in a less serious manner because I know practical works best for me. I have few courses in mind to complete but timeline is depending on myself. Learning objectives are everywhere because I am distracted by options and choices. There isn't any curriculum and that is a problem.
