Hi guys, so I’ve been off and on lately (more like mostly off) and I feel like I owe you guys an explanation.
I’ve been pretty busy, just got into school for my MSc (hurray!!!) After the seemingly endless wait for the admission list, I’m quite excited, I had decided that it was best to stick to my biochemistry but all it took was the first week in school for me to think (O.M.G! what have I done? what have I gotten myself into?) I mean of all courses, why biochemistry? Again? Well the answer is quite simple, I’m a biochemist and I love biochemistry just not this part of it (smiles). And oh did I mention the stress? Yeah, it’s been really stressful, being back in school sure is taking some getting used to.
About my new school
I must confess, I’m a little, okay maybe a little more than a little disappointed with the condition of things here, I had lots of expectations and they just dashed my hopes and let me down, to think that I ever considered the school better than my Alma Mata, well, I guess it’s true what they say “you don’t know the value of what you have until you’ve lost it” the most annoying part is the way that the students there go on claiming titles like ‘university of first choice’ and ‘nation’s pride’ yeah! Right, nation’s pride my foot. Alright, alright, I should stop messing my new school up now, I after all can only judge based on the condition of things in my department and not the entire school, but… nation’s pride…..hmm… Okay… since I’m already registered here, and I’m thus a student of this school, I guess I can just say that I’m disappointed and leave it at that.
About the lecturers
I prepared a little note about the lecturers but then I think I’ll rather not write it… yet. I’ll just reserve my comment till further notice.
About the students
By students, I mean my colleagues, and I have to admit it even if just to myself that I am a little intimidated, these guys (most of them) are so good, they seem to be always prepared, and it’s really intimidating but despite that, I do intend to graduate one of the best student in my class, although I haven’t the faintest idea about how I’m going to pull that off but I do know that I have a long year ahead of me (whatever is left of it) to figure it out. They keep me motivated and that is a really good thing.
Wish me luck…
That is what I’ve been up to, being a student again has been hectic, but in the middle of my busy schedule I’m going to make time to write you guys, and I look forward to hearing from you… yes you!!!
Peace be with you…
