#1795 – Officially Unemployed*


Today is the first day of the month of September. This means that as of today, I am officially unemployed! Haha πŸ˜† Yes, my contract at TU Delft ended yesterday and I will start my new job next month (in October).

I am very excited; as I have planned a lot of activities for this one sabbatical month of mine; mostly traveling (with my parents as well). Yeay!

Speaking of TU Delft, as obviously I still have not officially got my PhD degree yet, I am actually given the “hospitality” position at the university. This means that while I am not being employed by the university anymore, some “hospitalities” are still provided by TU Delft for me. This includes my university account, my official university email, and also my office (including my computer as well). Basically all the basic ingredients that are meant to help me, eventually, get the PhD degree while not being employed by the university so no salary, no bonus, no holiday allowance, and no other professional obligation πŸ˜€ .

Anyway, but I do not expect myself to do a lot of work in September. Afterall, September is supposed to be my vacation month anyway; as I took no vacation during the summer this year (weekend trips do not count, of course πŸ˜› ). I deserve some break, and this is what I intend to do πŸ™‚ .

So, cheers for the month of September!! πŸ™‚


Hari ini adalah hari pertama di bulan September. Ini berarti, mulai hari ini aku adalah pengangguran loh! Haha πŸ˜† Iya, kontrakku dengan TU Delft berakhir kemarin dan pekerjaan baruku akan kumulaiΒ bulan depanΒ (Oktober).

Aku merasa bersemangat banget nih; karena aku sudah memiliki banyak rencana untuk satu bulan sabatikalku ini; terutama sih acara jalan-jalan ya (bersama orangtuaku juga). Hore!

Ngomongin TU Delft, karena jelas aku masih belum resmi mendapatkan gelar PhD/S3-ku, sebenarnya aku masih diberikan posisi “hospitality” di universitas ini. Ini berarti walaupun secara resmi aku tidak lagi bekerja untukΒ universitas, universitas masih memberikan “fasilitas tamu” untukku. Ini termasuk akun kampus, alamat email resmi universitasku, dan juga kantorku (termasuk komputerku juga tentunya). Pada dasarnya sih segala bahan bantuan yang diperlukan untukku nantinya mendapatkan gelar PhD-ku deh. Tapi ini juga berarti aku tidak lagi digaji, tidak ada bonus, tidak ada jatah cuti, dan tidak ada kewajiban profesional lainnya πŸ˜€ .

Anyway, tetapi aku tidak akan banyak bekerja di bulan September ini. Terlebih lagi, September adalah bulan liburanku kan; dimana aku sama sekali tidak mengambil liburan musim panas tahun ini (perjalanan akhir pekan tidak digitung tentunya ya πŸ˜› ). Aku berhak untuk beristirahat sejenak, dan memang ini lah yang ingin kulakukan πŸ™‚ .

Jadi, tos untuk bulanΒ September ini!! πŸ™‚
