A Quick Update!

Phew! I almost surrendered to my old laptop. Was full of blogging spirit before I turned on my laptop but apparently it took me almost half an hour just to start it and enter my blog. Spirit all gone wth. Haha.

Anyway. The spirit is back again after typing the first sentence. Lols. I've not blogged for almost two months! Even I myself couldn't believe that. I can actually see an obvious drop in my English level after not going for English lessons for so many months.

As you may know, I've started college, like many of my friends out there! I'm the March 2012 intake though. :P Spent around 1 to 2 months slacking at home like a sloth and another 2 more months working at Nippon Paint! And finally, my student life was revived on the 26th of March! The first two days of college were the orientation days though. It was pretty boring to be frank. Especially the first day of orientation. On the second day, everything started to get more spiced up where we had an ice-breaking session (played Draw Something. No, not using our smartphones. Haha! Representatives of each group were called out to draw on the white board!). I couldn't imagine college life without Xin Er. I would look like a lonely abandoned girl. Thank you buddy! And of course, Wei Khit too! For accompanying me during lunch break and to my classes on the first day when the classes commenced! Or else I would be lost in college. -.- College's a maze to me. But everything's fine now! I'm improving rather well considering that I'm an idiot when it comes to directions. Oops!

College life isn't as hectic and as stressful as I had imagined though, especially when I'm one of the March intake students. Okay, maybe not YET. I shall enjoy my rather carefree life now first before everything changes completely. :( Right now I can still slack around during the weekends as long as I've completed my assignments and done enough reading (only when I'm told to :P). I hesitated a lot before starting my course or should I say, before handing in my subjects form and choosing my timetable whether or not to take up Physics. I'm glad I chose to go with it as it's the only subject I really enjoy in college. Mr. Randall, our lecturer is a man full of humor. Lols. Without him as my lecturer I would have chosen to drop Physics! Although he always scares us by welcoming us to a journey to hell with him, I hope everything would be fine as time passes by! I will do my best no matter what! ^^

Oh! How is it possible for me to forget about this. On the 21st of March, it was the most nerve-wracking day for all 1994 babies. Well, maybe not for ALL but it was definitely one for me! SPM RESULTS DAY! It took me so much of effort just to swallow my food mainly because the butterflies in my stomach refused to accept it. I only ate like.. one quarter of my Bah Kut Teh. I kept on refreshing my Twitter to see if there were updates from my friends about their results and there! I saw Jye Yih's tweet congratulating me for getting 10A+! That did not relieve me but instead, made me even more nervous! I literally abandoned my food and didn't even bother to try to swallow it. My mum, who was almost as nervous as me, or should I say, more anxious than me hurried my dad to eat faster so that we could go to school immediately! Haha. Come to think of it, it was kind of a funny moment. :P When I reached school and really got hold of my result slip, the adrenaline rush in my body slowly died away. WHAT A RELIEF! My effort paid off and I'm really very very grateful to everyone who stood by me during the crucial year especially my parents! :')

However, frankly speaking, getting 10A+ is nothing at all when it comes to college (excluding the full tuition fee waiver). I have learnt that no one really cares about your results because once you step into college, everyone is equal. You start from zero. Everything goes back to square one. College life is a totally new phase of life and a new challenge for us to overcome. You meet new faces, you're in a new environment and you encounter new teaching styles which you have to get used to in a short span of time. College is not like secondary school where we can choose which day to skip, talk all you want and laugh your hearts out at the back of the class. Every single detail in class is so important that you cannot even afford to miss it especially in lessons that require full attention like Biology. We still do laugh our hearts out in class too mainly during Math class. Another thing that makes college so different from secondary school is the super conducive environment! Every classroom is air-conditioned, even the labs. Unlike secondary school where we had to brave the scorching sun and go back home being all sweaty. Speaking of labs, our Chemistry and Physics labs are super gorgeous! Everything is soooo new because the labs are just renovated. :D Makes me more semangat to study. Hahahaaha.

So I guess that's all about college! ^^ Just to add on, although I've made a few new friends, I still miss my ex-classmates freaking much! I miss all the jokes we have cracked and how high our craziness level could be, I love all of you!! <3

Love life for me could not be any better. We're going through the 10th month now and I'm very lucky to have him as my man. <3
