While you have just turned 22, i shall have to contemplate on my 23rd birthday.
Which is coming waaaayyy tooooo fast if you ask me.
By the way, the first week of classes were a bummer.
Not to mention the amount of grief i had to go through in registering for my classes.
Research methodology and World Literature was somehow high in demand this semester.
None of the lecturers or the administrators could foresee this problem so all the sections were practically OVERFLOWING with students.
Coming from a department where lecturer to student ratio is 1:10, you can imagine the amount of problems i had to go through. The begging, pleading and coming-down-on-one-knee act to get into the required course.
Almost did not make it to World Lit. He told me that he was sorry and that i had to wait for the next LONG semester.
FYI i graduate in the short semester which is NEXT semester.
And its my last LONG semester in IIU so why couldn't he make the exception? There were other people whom he could easily bump off but no...he told me to get someone to switch with me.
Eventually, when i did get someone to switch with me, he told me that i could actually join the class since the other section that he opened was roughly the same size as the earlier section.
So this semester, i'll be coming face to face with Prof. Quayum again. Although he isn't officially lecturing the classes and grading us, he will come around some time or other to give us lectures.
So no more case of the fainting student like last semester.
So what does it feel like to be a senior?
Especially since all the other seniors are gone.
Well, its not half bad. Its just that you have to watch what you say and do because you don't want people to accuse you of doing things where the younger students might follow.
Especially when people misconstrue a lot where i belong.
So this semester, i think i'll see a
Okay now you all know im lying...hohoho
Quieter maybe but i'll probably carry the same amount of zeal as i've always done before.
I am missing some people...like Kak An and Kak Y. And all the other seniors that graduated a looong time ago.
Like Kak CT and Kak D.
It seems really quiet without the whole lot of them now.
Well then, its up to us to make a whole lot of hullabulloo this time round.
I hope i'll be missed this much when i'm not in IIU anymore.
