Started from graduate school, I realized the fact that if you want something to happen, planning ahead and creating all possible conditions to nurture the dream is an inevitable part. Things do happen randomly, but for what you wanted so much, you just cannot give the choice to random luck. 

Life in US taught me the importance of improving myself to better survive in this country and getting prepared for possible future practical issues. Graduation date is approaching, without a job offer, international students are required to exit this country in three months. Returning home at this point runs the risk of visa being checked and having trouble to enter US again. PhD seems an easy option to rely so there is no near burden of this sort. However, that's not a course for everyone. I've seen PhDs struggling in the job market failing to live up to expectations for their expertise and thus being abandoned because of the required benefit for this high degree. It is miserable spending 5 years getting the high degree without really exceptional achievement. This is a tough journey, only worthwhile for those who are really passionate.

Having determined to not taking the PhD route for temporary relief, I am now faced with practical issues. Job offer is out there in no where and I am still waiting to hear back from the Parker interview happened three weeks ago. Need to allocate more time on thesis and cover part of my lab research duty, I am having a tough time devoting to job search. Away from home for two years now, I wanted so much to travel back once but was still concerned with possible visa issues due to this special period.

I don't like waiting for something to happen as that gives me too strong feeling that waiting is like giving the opportunity away gradually. However, sometimes, I just didn't get enough time to fight for everything all at once as a single-line girl, not being able to balance all priorities and achieve all. So, right now, at this very critical period, I am waiting( for a possible offer), praying( for a possible offer, for an opportunity to come home and return to US) and striving ( for successfully passing my defense) at the same time. It will be great to strive for all these things but I am seeing a limitation in myself that I don't want to push now.

Being young, life should be free of limitations. But now, I happened to see some limitations. And I am thinking of why. My mind should not age before my body does do, right?
