4 weeks in a nutshell

I’ll summarise the past couple of weeks just to keep my mind off the accident. What’s done is done after all.

My last night class was on the 31st October. It was such a mixed emotion for me. Feeling excited and having a sense of achievement that after almost two years, we’ve already completed our classes but at the same time, sad because I know that I wont’ be able to come back again. The school will be closing down to make way to new residents come next year.

Mr Muhammad, one of the guards of the school

I’ll never forget this place. Lengthy and endless bus journeys have I taken to reach there and the interaction between my classmates and teachers. It was memorable. I want keep this image in my mind for a long time.

Studying in a restaurant of all places!

My first paper was on the 2nd November and it was then that I realised how painful it was to try to write at high speeds within a certain time frame – to write in all the ideas and answers as much as possible.

The worst bit was during the geography paper when I had to write non stop for a solid 3 hours. My hand got cramped at the end of the paper. And yet at the same time, I felt that time just passed by too quickly.

If I could choose between typing and writing, I’ll choose typing.

After that I learnt to adapt. My strategy was to use those wonderful ink gel pens with soft grips around them and wear a band aid around my writing finger to cushion it.

I’m not too sure how the results will come out. To be honest I’m not all that confident, but I’ve done what I could.

Work! work! work!

Juggling through work and studies isn’t an easy thing to do, believe me. I wish I had more time. So that I could do what I want to do. Or maybe clone myself so that I can concentrate on one thing at a time.

Like attending the Suchida method brain development skills with my mum and learning that all children from the age 0 – 6 has the brain capability to become geniuses.

Yes they actually used esp cards in one of the activities to train the mind

Or going to a newly wedded friend’s house warming party.

But now the exams is over, I guess I have more time do the things that I wanted to do. End of the week, with Hema’s wedding coming up and a vocal course, I am looking forward to that. :]

  1. Poor you … I’ll miss the memories I had, either good or bad in school too …

    Losing the school and the teacher’s itself didn’t hurt me so bad … (No offence), but losing the friends really hurt … sometimes I just wish I didn’t have to grow up … 🙁

    And how’s your finger? It might take days for it to … unswell.

    And erms … just taking my role as the annoying little sister I am …

    Can I come to Hema’s wedding? 😀

    Just wanna see how people in love interact with each other. ^^

  2. Yay! Good to have you back Rinaz! Great summary and pictures of your last 4 weeks! Sounds like you really crammed a lot of things in even though you were taking exams and studying…

    Reading your paragraph about trying to cram everything down on paper in 3 hours and getting a sore hand does bring back memories though :-S

    I must be getting old! 😛

  3. Yeah, why cant we type instead of write? I mean writing is almost obsolete even … (almost)

    With people regularly typing emails, smsing … it would make better sense to have a touch type answers, isnt it?

    You’re not old by the way 🙂
