I’m sure the rest of Malaysia are coughing as well.
I remember at the beginning of every year, I’d anticipate a new set of homework. All ready to get down and dirty with the new subjects. I’d go home sorely disappointed because everything in school is going really slowly.
So there I was, all psyched to be back for ROUND2! *deng deng* (this is the sound of the bell used in wrestling matches, if you must know!)
I’m not disappointed at all. Noo.. not at all. Just burnt out already and it has only been three days.
I can safely say that the amount of classes spread out in a typical three weeks period in our first year is the same as the amount of classes we have in a typical week here in Year 2.
Class starts at 8.30am EVERY day and ends at 6pm on the average. That’s like about 10 hours of classes. With a few hours break here and there, but still! Staying in university for that long can be very very draining.
I’ve never seen so many of my classmates zoning out by the end of the day. All of them looked half dead and I even went home and climbed straight into bed.a
We can now have tv dinners.
The lengths I’d go for my chinese shows.
Lie Yuen’s such a good girl.
At the beginning of each academic year, all students are given a handbook to guide us through our year. Very inspiring. *semangat*
I bought this notice board from Tesco! Isn’t it cute!!? I can hang my earrings, put up some notes or bills, hang some snacks.. hehe.
And here’s my new RM180 cupboard. Smells like a cupboard. Looks like a cupboard. Functions like a cupboard. Great! The previous cupboard that I was using for the past six months did not have all those features that my new cupboard has. Yes, believe me. I dragged it down the stairs, up the tar road and to the big dustbin at the top of my street. I tried asking Lie Yuen if she wanted to sit inside the cupboard while I dragged it, but she was afraid of the metal rods that was sticking everywhere.
Oh well, her loss.
me happily posing with the year 2 guide.
AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, JOLENE LAI PEI SHAN IS IRONING HER CLOTHES!!!! ..
..a new year, a new me..
I enjoy multitasking.
Here’s a snapshot of what my schedule used to look like.
See how crazy it is this year?
*takes a deep breath* I know I should not be complaining since I am MORE than grateful about not needing to repeat my 1st year.
It’s quite soothing to organise my notes with these ring stickers while I read the papers at night. It’s still early days. I probably can’t be farked by the 3rd week or so.
And a good number of my classmates told me I lost weight. DID I DID I DID I ?!!!
I know it’s still a far cry away from what human beings deem beautiful. But at least you can see that I’m a bit more of a woman now. Previously I was a tree trunk.
The title on the box looks like it indicates that the box belongs to a 7 year old.
Anyway, yeah, that’s MY first year. Madness huh?
Juniors seem alright so far. There was this one guy in university whom I have been smiling and waving at each other withÂ for nearly a year. I NEVER knew his name and cannot recall how we started smiling and waving at each other. We never talked, only smile and wave. I know it’s strange.
Today I learnt that he is my junior. Strange how things turn out.
Lucky juniors. They have seniors who can lend them notes and tell them what books to buy. Pioneer students had NO help whatsoever.
Other than that, it’s been nice to be back with the other classmates.
Just last night, Josiah cooked supper for a few of us and brought it to our place. Brenda, Andy, Chee Wen, Xin Yi and Yan Rui came over and we watched tv together. Such aÂ nice feeling because it’s like being in a family where everybody watches tv together.
I guess once life is established in Kedah, it’s not so bad. I had quite a tough time adapting back in the early days of my first year. I had a veryÂ bad bout of internet withdrawal syndrome when I first arrived and ate crap for food every single day.
Now I get to have a say about what I eat. Which is damn good.
I have kai lan, meat balls and herbal soup waiting for me downstairs and a container of rice too. Mmmm!
Not like you care, but yeah, I’m so happy about my dinner tonight.
