Rejection Hurts

Ini bukan post berunsur cinta.

I have been waiting for this letter since two weeks ago, after my third stage interview with IIUM-UIA for an academic position at Center for Foundation Studies IIUM (Yeah, third stage. My first stage was last year, somewhere in October). I was excited at first, but the excitement didn't last long until I opened the letter.

"However, we regret to inform you that your application has not been successful". This is the last sentence of the main content of the letter. What?  I failed?! Again! 

It was my second time being rejected, after I had passed certain main stage of an interview. The first one was when I applied for KPLI. I passed the first round, but then failed afterwords. This time, although I didn't get my hopes high, it still hurt as much as the first one.

Rejection hurts. No, rejection sucks. Nevertheless, I have to admit, a part of the failure was because of myself. Overconfident much maybe. 

As much as I wanna feel sad right now, well, it'll just be a waste of time. I have to move on.

Third time is a charm? Nah, I think I'm done! At least for this moment.

So, what's my plan after this? Hmm, just gonna concentrate on my current work, give my 100% efforts, though I don't really like the nature of the work itself. I have to suck it up. Whatever it is, I am planning to further my studies (in education), for the upcoming intake in September, InsyaAllah.

P/s - Orang yang failed audition Akademi Fantasia, pastuh nangis-nangis, memang drama. It is not the end of the world.
