oNe WeeK aFTeR...!!!


I've just finished went through the first week of my life as a Part 1 student in B.Ed TESL. I would say the first week was less hectic than I expected it would be. I've gotten into all the classes so far except for Literature class which is taught by Miss (Madam?) Munirah, Che'ah's elder sister. So, we'll only be meeting her next week.

So far, Linguistics class was the only class where I felt much alive, and learned something in the process. No offense to the other lecturers and courses, but I think I've made up my mind about which course is going to be my favorite this semester. The other classes were not that much of an excitement to me. Plus, racist lecturer is a major turn off for me. Being racist doesn't make you a better person than others, or gain more respect from it. It'll actually make people lose their respect to you. Respect is earned, it is not given just like that. In fact, as a lecturer who has the title of an "ustaz", that just doesn't seem right. But I can't do anything about it because my future in this course is in his hands, and whether I like it or not I have to learn how to cope with these kinds of people.

Classmates are okay. We haven't been mingling around much considering it's the first week of our class together. I would say, there are so much things to be adapted from each other. One thing I noticed about my new classmates was they love making those moaning and whining sound effects in class, which is something that haven't been done by anyone I've met before. Somehow, I couldn't help myself from thinking they were having rounds of orgasms in class, which would be really creepy if that were to happen in real life.

We had an in-class discussion with Mr. Rizal on the topic effeminate male teachers were not welcomed in the education industry anymore. I didn't really participate in the discussion and some people asked me why did I go silent along the whole one hour of discussion. The truth is, I didn't see the point of discussing something that was one-sided based. Besides, I was more kind of observing my classmates on how they would handle a sensitive issue like this. I believe on the saying that says "you are what you eat" and I also believe that "you are what you say". In my humble opinion, if you don't have something intelligent to say or even something that's not strong enough to support your idea, then better say nothing at all. When we say something, especially in discussions like this, it would be much better if we say something that has something worthwhile to say. Saying something simply to add havoc in the discussion without thinking much what to say won't make the discussion any more effective. Besides, too much of hasty generalization happened in discussion on that day which turned me off in the first place. I'm saying this generally, not specifically about anyone or anything.

Earlier today we went to Padang Kawad UiTM to attend the briefing of our extra curricular activity. It's compulsory for each and everyone of the Faculty of Education students get involved in one uniformed unit for one semester. There was this one National Kesatria coach approached me and asked me about the track pants that I was wearing and it was Malaysia Airports' track pants which would be given free to any Malaysia Airports' staffs. He asked me who worked in the company because I won't be having that pair of track pants if somebody didn't work there. I told him that my dad worked there and my dad is a Kota Kinabalu International Airport staff. He asked who was my dad and I told him that it was Rijap. He laughed and made gestures insinuating that he actually knew my dad and walked away. I never knew that my dad actually that popular between his co-workers. I mean, I never imagined someone in Peninsular Malaysia who would actually know my dad. I think I inherited that trait from my dad, the popularity wise.

Eclipse is out and I still don't know when to watch it. My Probationary driver's license had expired and yet to be updated to Competent driver's license, I hope I can do it soon. I also need to settle the PTPTN matters. Need to mail the forms to my parents for them to sign and return to me immediately. I think Monday is the best day to settle everything because I only have one class on that day. Better get going...!!!
