Stressed and pressured..

It's uncommon for me to blog at 1:47pm in the afternoon. But all in a sudden I have inspiration to write.

Let's talk about study pressure.

     Not long ago, I came to realise that I have so many people around me putting high hopes on me passing my SPM examination with flying colours. Even though how I much I tell them I might not do well this time compared to PMR, they'll go, "Aiyah, what can Vincent Pang can't do? He'll show us miracles, just like how he did for PMR"

     This, of course, turned its energy form of verbal compliment to mental pressure. Those I know currently having high hopes on me are none other than my parents, my siblings who took me as their example, close buddies, friends, temple peeps, Interact and Leo comrades, relatives especially elder cousins, close aunties and uncles, my only grandmother, neighbours(yeah, what the heck?), and etc.

     Their blessings which I should appreciate weren't doing any good. Instead, it made me feel that I should push myself harder, thus creating more pressure than usual. In my current situation, I might not be able to create miracles afterall. Straight A1's? Quite impossible, unless miracles do exist.

     Worst of all, my parents are a little too confident with me. They will freely let me go anywhere even now because they think I'll achieve the results they wanted.

     Honestly, I'm really scared. I'm nervous. I'm now feeling the lack of confidence to the extend I just hope I'll get straight credits instead of A's. What if my results turned out to be a disappointment for everyone whom had high hopes on me?

These few days of staying up to study till late 4am is not doing any good to my body, as we know that sleep can never be accumulated. Just because I can't waste a single minute till showtime in 29 days, I'll let my body suffer for the sake of not failing miserably.

I just can't wait for this stress to be over. It won't be till 48 days later.

"REST" is in my schedule today, but I canceled it this morning. For now, Biology is more important than getting some rest.

After this, for the first time in 8 months, I'll shut down my computer for today.

Hey, all the best in studying Bio and the rest of your subjects. Don't sacrifice your health too much for studies.

Eat your veges everyday and take care :P

alah vince..just try ur best man..i guess everyone has high hopes for every1, especially ur family..just study hard and do ur best. coz even IF you disapoint them, at least you can say I'VE TRIED MY BEST. But if u disappoint them by not putting enough effort, then you are to be blame. Study hard, 1 month is all you need then we can all party. Take care. Dun study till so late la, not good for your body. Sleep early and wake up early is the best. Good luck.

Keputusan Semak Semula

Ummm, I've just received the reply letter from Malaysia Examinations Syndicate earlier today.
3 months ago, my father made me appeal for a recheck on my SPM results because he wasn't very satisfied (neither was I, but there was nothing much I can do about it; afterall, I tried my best, no?) - and the results are finally out.

RM250 gone down the drain just like that. I told him already that it was no use, but he didn't want to listen. Oh well..

Why Taylor's College?

Many of my Sunway College friends have asked me this particular question,

"Why did you choose
Taylor's College
instead of
Sunway College?"

My answer/explanation is actually quite simple - ummmmm, perhaps NOT that simple.

Lets run down the road of history, lets say, about 2 months ago.

I was filled with indecisiveness in regard of choosing between two colleges for my Cambridge A Level Programme, Taylor's College and Sunway College. My parents were very fond of sending me to the former, whilst I preferred the latter. Thus, to reach a conclusion, I decided to take a ride down to both colleges one fine morning to personally enquire more about their campus, programme, and offers.

My first stop was Taylor's College Subang Jaya.

TCSJ Lady : Hi there, boy. How can I help you?
Me : (Feeling a little nervous) Err, I want to enquire about your 'A' Level Programme.
TCSJLady : Alright, sit right here and I'll be right back. *Point to a chair while taking a few pieces of b…
