All for that piece of paper
Sometimes I wonder why am I studying. I don't see myself learning anything that can be useful at work or can apply in outside world. I am studying IT. But I find myself studying modules that are too indepth into the topic until there is no real life application for it.
In fact, I was beginning to feel this since my poly final year. I personally feel that you just need to learn the basic of programming. The if else, the loop and function call. Rest of them are easy to pick up. There is no need for these chim chim theory. Most likely you don't need them in your workplace. Even if you need them, they can be easily picked up by looking up the net or manuals.
I'm not learning anything useful. I'm just chasing that piece of paper. For what? A better pay? A better job? A better life?
Why should the salary of a person be judged by the qualifications? If a Diploma can out perform a Degree holder, why should his pay be lower?
