Classes are a bit weird for me as well. The egocentric, super-nerdy part of me dearly misses being the only one able to correctly answer the teacher's questions, particularly in Bio. Truth be told, my self esteem has taken a beating (that it probably somewhat deserved). When I moved on from primary school into secondary school, I realised I wasn't such a Hermione; now that I'm in college, I realise I'm not a Hermione at all, compared to all the demoralisingly intelligent people out there.

Since starting classes with my Maths lecturer, I began fully appreciating how awesome Mr. Elvin was. He was an awesome teacher, but what was even more awesome was his 'do schoolwork, not homework' stand. My lecturer gives us homework every time we see her, Monday to Thursday (TGIF indeed). On the other hand, I think I shouldn't be complaining since I've heard that the other Maths lecturer makes their students do every question in the book. Is that even possible?! I'm struggling to keep on top of my Maths homework as it is!
Right, on the plus side: Trishi and Dhama have joined MCKL as well, so I'm not alone! Dhama and I don't take Physics, so we skip off gleefully as our classmates trudge off for their class. Most of the time, Physics classes are at the end of the day too, so we actually get to leave early. Such glee!
Tomorrow is Friday. Chem lecture's been cancelled, so classes start at nine. Due to transport issues, Dhama, Trishi, and I still have to get there at the usual time: eight. However, since Dhama and I don't take Physics (HEE HEE HEE), we leave campus at ten (HEE HEE HEE HEE HEE). This means our travel time is longer than the time we'll be in class, but I'm certainly not complaining.
Oh, school. I don't miss you at all.
It occurred to me to do a College vs. School post, but it would've been pointless -- college pwns school times a million. I shall leave you with these words of wisdom a senior one day spoke to me:
"Real life starts after secondary school."
True dat. True dat.
