Last seen 2 years ago, I was supposed to be a doctor, or a lawyer, or even just anybody with a scholarship at least.
But what really happened was. Firstly, I screwed up my A Levels, mostly, Chemistry. If I had just gotten A in Chemistry, then well I might still stand a chance. I'm going to point the finger at my Chemistry teacher, Mrs Tham. I don't think it's her teaching that caused it, but rather I think she hated me. Well, I had reason to believe so because she always reluctant to see me for consultation and she's close to all her students except me. Well, not like all the teachers must love me, but the last straw was when I wanted to consult other Chemistry teachers and she forbade me. I'm like, selfish much? It's fine if you don't want to teach me, you don't let others teach me? I guess she felt like losing face or whatever. I did have tuition for Math, Physics and Chemistry, but I do think my Chemistry tutor was not very "accreditated" and it was too late to look for others.
Moving on, I had a brain-dead moment and I chose the school, not the course. I wanted Accountancy but the school fees were $8000 more expensive, so I chose the "better school" to boost up my chances of doing "further studies" in medicine (ok, I want to be a doctor because it's a useful skill, applicable to everyone like animals even, and you feel good. It's like one of those dream careers, nobody ever dreamt of being a HR manager right?)
BUT, I really hate my college. It was filled with people who are shallow and they like to party. And we were forced to take basic courses and I am super bad at them (class participation). It's not like I can't find things to say, it's because "I WASN'T FREAKING CALLED ON". Yes, if you ever take ES2002, know that if you got CHITRA SABAPATHY, she is a racist (I'm the only China person) and she bear a grudge ever since I missed her class because my only pair of spectacles broke and I need to fix it. Of course, I tried to kick up a fuss but nothing ever happened to her. Meanwhile, I got my first C+.
I also tried for CCAs but surprise they didn't accept me because I'M FREAKING OLD since I'm not a freshman anymore. Right.
Marketing, HR, Economics, gosh I did badly. The previous 2 were due to biases while the last 1 is because I'm just naturally bad at Economics because I didn't take it in A Levels.
And then, I made a few friends and I teased them about their crushes like last time :P
Then I went for my SPH internship. Looking bad, the pay was pretty good and it was quite fun chatting with the other interns, it's not even that far from my house BUT it's really competitive. I made many friends and enemies, namely this petty guy, who thinks that just because he is above average (so is the other 49% of the population) that if I ask him to watch a movie=I like him. WTF is wrong with you? Dude I don't even know you! If I talk to you or have lunch with you, ever thought maybe it's because erm, I don't want to appear alone? Or I just feel bored? Maybe some activities are more fun in groups? Anyway, so due to his fault, I spent a huge sum of money buying presents for everyone I met in SPH because he just up and ran off without paying. I mean, where's your responsibility, man? So what if I (touch wood) do blindly like you? Not like I will molest you or something...... I might as well do that to more "goodlooking" guys since it's illegal. Anyways, I decided that guys are weird because they might think you like them and then screw up your plans.
My Year 2 sem 2, I had 5 projects.
The good: everyone took initiative, except maybe 1 (goodlooking) guy was too enthusiastic and I felt he was faking it.
The average: A couple of tension/inefficiency/awkwardness like your teammates hooking up/going out and leaving you alone, or couples who always stand for each other.
The bad: Perfectionist guy who thinks he's always right and force you to follow his example.
Vietnamese scholar who joined your group halfway, bad at english and conveniently "copy and paste" the report into our presentation. WTF then what's the point in presenting if it's the same?
The good: professional, efficient one who gave our cadbury chocolates (Prof Ruth Tan deserved to be named)
The average: tried to be interesting...
The bad: Prof Gao who couldn't speak English properly. And one biased towards Europeans.
I don't ever know if I'll reach my goal, but it's do or die.
