Responsibility

When I was kid… I often felt envy to adult people. They have a saturday’s weekend. But for school students, we don’t. My father is one of the adult people who has saturday’s weekend. So, if I were him, I will have holiday. I thought I might be happy because I have 2 days weekend, saturday and sunday. But in fact, he didn’t.

And… one more thing. Adult people has a late office starting time. Usually they start at 9:00 am, or even the earliest is 8:00 am. But the school student doesn’t. Adult people do not have morning 7:00 am class. You know, I didn’t like morning class. Teacher will not allow you to attend the class if you are late even 3 mins. And of course, teacher will give you a punishment. Morning seems like a nightmare for me.

But now… when I am adult, I was wrong.

Adult people might have saturday’s weekend and late office starting time. Dan itu hanya sebagian kecil dari…sebut saja reward… yang layak didapatkan oleh adult people. Karena ini berhubungan dengan responsibility, tanggung jawab. Adult people mempunyai tanggung jawab yang besar terhadap kerjaan. Mungkin mereka mempunyai jam kantor lebih dari 7:00 am, tapi tidak sedikit dari mereka yang juga pulang larut tengah malam atau lembur. Belum lagi kalau berhubungan dengan deadline. Bisa saja mereka menggunakan weekend mereka untuk bekerja. That’s why even my father has saturday’s weekend, he doesn’t take that. Berbeda dengan anak sekolahan. Meski mereka hanya memiliki sunday’s weekend, tetapi mereka benar-benar menggunakan weekend mereka untuk refreshing. Melepaskan diri dari hal-hal sekolah. Adult people, meski mereka berusaha untuk menikmati weekend mereka… jika mereka mempunyai tanggungan kerjaan, toh akhirnya kepikiran juga dengan kerjaan. Seperti saya saat ini. Enam jam lalu, saya baru pulang dari lab (sekitar 2:30 am). Dan sekarang, jam 8:30 am sudah berada di lab lagi, haha. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?

So…. you don’t deserve to be envy, hey kids. You’re still lucky.
