My Future?

31st of July 2009
My school had it's annual education fair. My class was chosen to witness the opening ceremony. Yue Wan said we are there to be "dolphins". Clapped so long until hand pain lol! I was "hunting" around, looking for colleges I and/or my parents had in mind. Since I didn't blog for so long, I guess you guys won't mind reading more XD

My "Stalked(or being stalked)" list:
Inter-Excel Advisory Sdn. Bhd.
Training ground for air hostess and air stewardess. I reached the required height XD Traveling~ Flying on plane~ Service line~ Tempting but I'm not going for it.

My dad is a fan of Monash. The person who explain the courses wasn't good at it lol? He encouraged us to get a PhD, can get high pay, prestige, buy big cars and houses... My friend was asking about engineering courses and as the person explain, I was like: huh? Liddet wan meh? What the person explained is totally different from what my dad told me about engineering courses! Of course I believe my dad =P

After all that, I asked the person:"Since you encourage us to take up PhD and all, are you a PhD holder?"
He:"No, (he mumbled some words, I couldn't hear clearly)"
Me:"Then, you have a Master's degree?"
He:"Nope, 学士学位 (I guess it means degree? lol)"

I mean, you have no experience about engineering and you are (trying to) convince people to pursue further? Anyway, I'm not convinced but I thanked him for his time. Dad says the person might be from the marketing department or something.

I'm interested with Bachelor of Business and Commerce (international business). Accounting is a professional degree but I don't think I'll go for it. The requirements are quite high (maybe, for now lol). The fees: RM30k per year??!!! My dad says:"okay lah"
FYI: My dad is a senior lecturer (civil engineering) and my mum, a bank officer (Maybank). My family lives a simple life and yea, I'm a simple person. *loving my simple life =)* Mum is not working next year. I was getting ready to go form 6 because I think college cost a bomb and I'm not rich nor clever! I guess my parents saved a lot on my education. So yea, College~! Unless I get local matriculation like my cousin bro did.
He's clever wey...

Music~ I don't know whether I will pass my Grade 8... Anyway, one of my ambition: lecturer =) I asked the college's representative about the job opportunities after BA(Hons.) in Classical/Contemporary Music and whether do I need to get trained/job experience before applying for this job. I guess they didn't expect any students to ask about that course so I didn't get an answer.

They offer BA(Hons.) Photography~! Their campus is so nice, Fees are reasonable, can further study in University of East London (never heard of it before) How how? *dilemma*

Back to last year,
I was struggling when it comes for me to choose which stream to go. Most of my friends chose Science stream 'cuz either they want to do medicine, engineering... or they don't know what they want. I know what I want =) If you think being in Arts stream is easy, you thought it wrong. Our recess time is not with the Science stream student, My friends...
Some "Science-ist" teacher don't really think an Arts stream student can do much for our school. Being in the 1st class of Arts stream (5A1), I can feel the pressure coming in. My class has many intelligent students, it makes studying challenge

P/s: I'm taking 11 subjects for SPM: BM, English, Chinese, Maths, Additional Maths, Science, Account, Econ, Moral, History and Bible Knowledge. As you read my blog, you know my English is so-so only. I'm improving and Blogging is a way to improve, right? ;) Pray for me will you? =)

Maybe after 10 years, when I look back at my posts, I might laugh at my naive-ness.
Me(10 years later):Hey, I was once naive~ XD
