Assalamualaikum w.b.t

How are you.? I hope all of you were fine. Same to me, so far I'm still good. So far it has been a month for me being a master student. So, maybe some of you curios how's master student's life. So, today I would like to tell you how was my life for the past month.

For those who didn't know, I'm taking a master in Electrical Engineering continuing my degree in power system. I also have been sponsored by UiTM. Allhamdulillah. I'm taking fully research which means I don't have to attend any classes. It sound easy right, but it is not as easy as it see.

Yes, I really don't have to attend any classes since I just have to read journals. And reading journals don't need you to attend any classes. All depends on you, how and where do you want to read it. For me, sometimes I go to library and sometimes I just stayed at home. But being a research student, the most important thing is to be independent. Yes, you have to be independent with yourself.

You have to know how to manage your time. For me it quite hard since I don't really good in manage my time especially getting up in the morning. Since I don't have class, so it is up to me when I want to get up and when I'm gonna go to sleep. This was quite challenging. Sometimes I went to library in order to manage my time well, but it is all about your self. How you want to manage your time.

And when being a research student, the other important thing, you have to read, read, read and read. Yes! The only thing you have to do is read. It is my biggest weakness since I don't like reading. That's why I'm taking engineering because I want to run away from reading. But now, I have to faces it.  :( Why you have to read? Because when you read others journals then you know what other had done and what their weaknesses. And from that you can fill the gap and make a research to fill the gap. That is the point of doing research. Filling the gap or doing something new that can contribute something to the society.

How many you have to read? Depend! The more you read, the more you understand and you will be more confident with your research when you want to defend your research. But reading journals are not like reading novel. Sometimes a journal with 4 pages takes a day to finish and understand what the author did. The worst situation is when you have to read repetitively in order to understand the content of the journals.

And the other part that important is meeting with supervisor. The more you meet your supervisor the more easy your job will be. You need to have a good supervisor. Supervisor will guide you. If you have a good supervisor InsyaAllah your research will be guided, if not, it is all depend on you. Allhamdulillah, so far I have a very good supervisor. She guided me well. Alhamdulillah.

So, that was my life for this past month. I hope Allah will always grant ease in everything I do. InsyaAllah. And Alhamdulillah, there were good news from my friends. A lot of my friends were getting a job. Alhamdulillah.. I hope they can perform well in their job. InsyaAllah. 

Until we meet next time..Assalamualaikum  :)
