Seeing my friends who graduated early this semester seem to be hard for me to admit. Why I can not compete with them who actually, I am far-better than them. I do not try to be arrogant but that is the reality I saw.
Yeah, I am a stubborn guy who usually want to be an independent thinker and not to let other people influence me.
What happens to my friends really stroke me. It is something not easy to resist to admit that I am not doing something better. I was left behind and now I admit it.
I knew that if someone chooses different ways, he will receive different outcomes. It is what I experience, now. I am far-behind because I choose the hard one.
I chose to use Systemic Functional Grammar that I believe that one day, I will be one of the guys who opposes Chomsky’s ideas. I will participate in the war of grammarians between the traditional and functional grammar. It is a hard theory to understood and take a lot of times and energies and I did choose it.
I want to recite a piece of poem that always inspires me in every hard time
I shall be telling this with a sighThe Road Not Taken by Robert Frost | source Poetry Foundation
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
At the end, I want to admit that I am the left-behind and thanks for the inspiration to my friends. But, I choose to be that because I don’t compete the others.
I am still on my own way to whatever it is my responsibility for the greater future of science.
