First week

First week of classes, I’m still alright. Until now, all my lecturers seem pretty chilled. Some even pulled out the “It’s okay if you fail this class but you wouldn’t be able to go to the UK,” card. Not planning on failing for sure. Up until now, I’ve accepted the fact that all my lecturers like to talk. They can go on and on about a topic and I’m like there wondering where it all came from. Trying to get our Fridays class-free so that I can go home on Thursday or Friday morning if we could just get our afternoon class moved up earlier. 

We’ve been stood up by our lecturers a few times but it’s alright, it’s only the first week. Something embarrassing happened yesterday, we got to the top floor of one of the blocks and later found out that we went to wrong lecture hall. But you know, being all chilled we just went back down to the right hall which was big enough for a lot of people but there were only 11 of us. Meh. I also met Acap who was my schoolmate for awhile back in primary school and high school and who I've met twice before during my holidays, at UTP during orientation and at Petrosains when I went with Q and Jared.

Moving along, I am not at all satisfied with my bed as I have height issues. Sitting up will make my head hit the top bunk and it hasn’t happened just once. But overall, my yellow-painted room, purple curtains and cemented floor are alright, at least there's a roof above my head. Though it can get pretty warm hot sometimes, mine and Hannah's personal fans are keeping the room windy since the ceiling fan is close to being useless.

Degree


Because I’m doing my degree now, that’s probably why I’m posting up something. I had a long 3 months break of lazying around which I spent with no regrets. 

The orientation or MSR of UniKL MFI was nothing like what I expected. We spent most of the time on the floor listening to boring talks but it all payed off when we started playing games. None of the Orientation Committees (OC) yelled their heads off, none of them gave us evil stares and none of them told us to do push ups. Even when we did so bad at singing and didn’t give our all while doing the claps, they didn’t tell us off, not even once. Continuous encouragement were what we got. But I seriously didn’t find waking up at 2am for no reason funny. Neither did I enjoy the fire drill. But they gave us sweets during the talks so that was alright. There was this one talk though, that didn’t need any sweets to keep me up because the guy was just hilarious. Kamal Affandi Hashim’s talk was on “Remaja vs Jenayah” and the fact that he made his whole talk enjoyable is amazing. 

Putting MSR aside, I’ve gone through my first day of degree and why why why are there so many thick books to buy. No. Seriously. It was only the first day.
