The Switch

I’ve always thought I have the best par­ents in the world. No, once again it’s not because they got me a new W810i.

Form 6 had started, and it really isn’t that bad, at least for now. I’m pretty much play­ing tagging-along with my sci­ence and math sub­jects, mind you, it’s not catch-up. In other words, it’s so far so good. Although, there are always tons of home­work to com­plete every sin­gle day, which you would have guessed since I now rarely update this poor blog of mine.

So while I had been try­ing to get used to form 6 and all that. I’ve been try­ing to con­vince myself, with con­stant help from my par­ents, that form 6 would be a suit­able choice.

When I just couldn’t care about paths other then form 6, my par­ents were con­stantly ask­ing me if I would be inter­ested in say, foun­da­tion in Nilai’s INTI Col­lege, or a degree in the U.S. or in UNITEN or through Swin­burne. Just for the record, I wasn’t offered the Yayasan TNB Schol­ar­ship. Wasn’t even called for inter­view for the JPA Schol­ar­ship, missed matrics and also the UEM Schol­ar­ship. So I was prac­ti­cally left with my last resort, form 6.

They were even con­sid­er­ing the Amer­i­can Degree Pro­gramme at one time (but I ruled that out because it was too costly and didn’t like the idea of being half a globe away from my fam­ily). Dad said that he wasn’t con­tented in see­ing me going in form 6. He reck­ons my results deserve a schol­ar­ship instead of see­ing it go to waste in form 6.

In the end, my par­ents set­tled for Swin­burne. Every­thing weighed down on me to make the deci­sion whether to go or not to. And that deci­sion, is a hard one to make. Espe­cially at a time when I am already men­tally set­tled in form 6.

Nonethe­less, we went to Swinburne’s info day this morn­ing and met up with their staff for a coun­sel­ing ses­sion. James was kind enough to show me around the cam­pus since he was there that morn­ing. A very impressed me left the info day with mum, dad left ear­lier to catch his class.

..and look what I got myself into.


bye bye form 6?
