Loads happened...it all started with my uncle's passing (at least I think it started from there), I went to Sibu for the first time, I'm no longer working in 5 Loaves Cafe and..... My long-awaited 2nd Semester has finally begun! Back to the life of the ordinary student..
Fast forward, I shall not elaborate on my previous adventures due to insufficient time. I have other important things other than blogging to do. I have a life outside the virtual realm!
First week of the second semester and I already feel the pinch! First class was Engineering Physics and I was late! I drove to campus but unfortunately, it was filled with people! There was no parking space left for me. Even the multi-storey carpark had no more parking space! I drove around campus for half an hour just to look for parking space! And I was already late! In the end, I had to park across the street at Cilipadi. I was already prepared to go home if there was no parking space for me. I felt so ashamed as I entered the class.....only to find that my class is filled with lihai people. In this case, in Iban I can say that aku merinsa.
After the first class, I drove back cos I don't want to drive during the day. Honestly, I've never seen the campus so packed with people! I guess now with the campus expansion, it really attracted alot of Kuching kids to study at Swinburne. And Kuching kids being Kuching kids, they drive to class. Seeing Swinburne carpark full, perhaps, we all need to practice carpooling. And that's where the refusal to drive to class during the day came. I didn't want to be late for class either. I drive for night classes only.
And yes, my classmates. Sadly, I've been separated from my usual classmates. Namely, Jap Siang, Azmi, Josef, Malcom, Nimai, Syaza etc. Well, for some classes, I'm the same with Malcom but the rest? None. At least there's Yanie who have been my best pal in campus since last semester. Oh well, we still hang out and talk, which is great. As for my new classmates, they're not like my old classmates. My old classmates are all selamba. My new classmate? They're so lihai la.....
My new classmates kinda reminded me of Form 5, the year that I dreaded the most. Honestly, I feel so stupid in class for Engineering Maths. I couldn't remember some stuff that I learnt last sem so most of the time I sit there bewildered. Well, at least now it's not so bad. What's bad is for the recent Quiz, I got the lowest mark, which is 60%. Everyone's getting 100% while I didn't. Well, can't blame me for being lazy to remember how to differentiate that particular question. And that's why my lecturer made me sit in front. All because I slipped up for one question.
And some people are just trying too hard to be cool. It's just not natural. I won't disclose the name cos it's just too plain embarassing. More for myself because I was seen in public with this person. Okay, that person is a guy. He was telling me a joke that was honestly super lame but I just laughed anyway. But he? He laughed so loud and his saliva actually came out and the worse part is.....PEOPLE WERE STARING AT US!! So much for my reputation for being dubbed as 'cool girl'. He destroyed it. I shall stop here cos that's enough to explain how embarassing that person can be. There are other instances but I shall not say....just too embarassing.
For my subjects content.....for Engineering Physics, we finally discovered how complex the process of getting the existing formulas that we use now. Something so simple actually derived from something that is so complex, so profound that you never actually thought it was possible but IS possible. Uhm....doubt it if you all understand but this is for my own rating aight?
And the thing that never change about Swinburne................
Banyak orang eksen. Me included.
