All About College…

Hmm… close to 11 months since I entered college and of course, I have made some observations and drawn some pretty weird conclusions about college slash university.

1. College is such a small compound so it is not astonishing to meet at least two friends of yours when walking down the corridor or around the common area. As for me, I always bump into my A Levels and Foundation friends and of course, greet them as we brush pass each other. Yet, this frustrates my ADP friends as they think I know everyone in college and some even claimed that I am showing off how popular I am. I had a big facepalm moment. Oh yes.

2. When bumping into friends, I realized, small talks that we initiate always revolves around these few things.

“Are you having break right now” or “Do you have class right now”

“What time is your class” or “Do you still have class later”

“So what subjects you taking this semester”

“Are you having your exams now”

“What is your major” or “What course you taking”

Nevertheless, I love small talks! :)

3. College is all about glamour. Even the words they use to describe the daily basic things are fancier than average. Example?

Quiz = Test

Assignments = Homework

Lecturer = Teacher

Cafeteria = Canteen

Lecture Hall / Class = Classroom

Break = Recess

4. My friends, especially A Levels friends, are talking about university applications and completing personal statements. Heck I haven’t even started applying at all. I am panicking I guess? I don’t even know what I am supposed to do. *cries*

5. This semester is pretty hectic I would say. Biggest reason being that I have quiz every single week, which means more studying than usual. Pfftt I wish I could go back in time where I only study when there’s major exams around the corner. :(

6. I have two college friends who are very much similar to me. Not in fashion sense, but music. We would sing songs to complete our sentences or even start singing a random song together. I love hanging out with them cause we just love to SING! Besides,they are people I can afford to go crazy with. Gilbert, with all the impersonation of Agent Salt and him being my boss; Amanda, with all the cool and fancy fist pounds and the most random topic we talk about.

7. Oh college is where I pick up random tunes from people around me and get the songs stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Things get ugly especially when I have a quiz on that day:

question one: which of the following is a false statement of…


*scratches head* *rereads question*

question one: which of the following… “feel.like.i’m.living.a.teenage.dream…”

*arghhh… rereads question*

Just so you know, I had a hard time finishing the paper. It was a struggle.

Lesson learnt: NEVER get a song stuck in your head before sitting for a quiz or exam. It will cause fatal consequences. Attempt at your own risk.


If you are thinking it only affects my exam, you guessing it wrongly. Even during class, the song can be pretty annoying.

Lecturer: Therefore, it is clear that when… “Snape, Snape, Severus Snape. Dumbledore!”

(tries to shrug it off…) *continues listening*

Lecturer: So it can be concluded that… “Ron, Ron, Ron Weasley! Hermoine, Hermoine…”

*bangs head at table*

In the end, I learnt nothing in class. Very good Pei Ning. Way to go!

Lesson Learnt: NEVER get a song stuck in your head before a lecture. It will cause fatal consequences. Attempt at your own risk.

8. Assignments due dates are closing in and I haven’t started on any yet! Kill me already.

9. Favorite hang out spot at college – Wisma HELP, level 9! :D

10. I don’t always have sufficient sleeping time ever since I enter college because everyone is a nocturnal! Everything comes alive at night.

*looks at the clock* 1am? Oh its okay. The night is still young… *continues fiddling with ze laptop*

People always think that the most painful thing is losing someone you love. The truth is… The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, forgetting that you are special too.

taa~ lovely.
