I miss College.

My A Levels exam ended two and a half weeks ago. My college days also ended two and a half weeks ago. Its hard to believe how so many things changed in one and a half years.

I've met so many people and made so many friends from all walks of life. I've learnt a whole lot of things in A Levels which is a deeper understanding about the world we live in.

Tunku Abdul Rahman College also known as TARC was never the first choice of colleges in my list. My parents were the one who persuaded me to study A Levels here. They said there is no point paying so much more on tuition fees like in Taylor's or HELP for the same paper that the whole world is gonna sit for. Except that HELP College is Edexcel whereas TARC and Taylors offer Cambridge A Levels. Being a banana in TARC, I discovered I wasn't alone coz there were many other people in the same shoes as I am. My lecturers are overall awesome people. They're dedicated, obviously very knowledgeable, hardworking and funny people. There are a few lecturer who were..... well, not so good in my opinion. Not so good in terms of delivering the knowledge. For what its worth, I'm glad that I chose TARC. =)

I can't sum everything about my college life in one post. I should have done that before but I'm lazy to do so. It has been a bittersweet year. After all the exams stress, sleepless nights, falling sick so many times and hours of studying, all of those things has come to an end. Despite suffering academically, I totally enjoyed the company of my college mates who never fail to brighten up my day. There were misunderstanding and differences in opinion and character, but thats just life. I cannot please everyone.

Now, I'm at home most of the time missing the days where I have to wake up as early as 6 a.m. and drive to college early just to get a parking spot. (coz I don't have a car sticker to park inside the college compound) I miss attending lecture classes where I get to chit chat with friends from other classes and sleep during Biology lectures coz it was really monotonous and boring. I miss having lunch with different groups of friends. I miss my chemistry lectures and Mr Loh, our Chemistry Lecturer with is sarcasm, funny and eccentric personality that never failed to somehow entertain all of us and boost our motivation to do better not just in our studies but as a whole individual. oh god, I miss everything..

Great post. And great blog. I love reading about college experiences, past a present. There is a lot to be missed. A great time of life. Keep the posts coming!

Thanks for your post!
