3 Days to Go!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t readers!

I haven't updated in so long because there is absolutely nothing to blog about (excuses, smexcuses).
Today, I am forcing my self to blog, because I don't want to lose my consistency in blogging (what?)

What have the oh-so-interesting (ahem sarcasm ahem) Sofia has been up to lately?

Well, I spent a lot of time in school this past weeks because of the Hari Kecemerlangan Sekolah Berasrama Penuh Kali Ke-41 (HKSBP41). "Helping" and "Training" the school debate team. Well, in all honesty I wasn't that much of a help. Sorry ducklings :( The results weren't auspicious. Well, better luck next time, SESMA.

HKSBP41 was kinda fun though, I was expecting more stalls, but at least we had keropok lekor and cold drinks to quench our thirst (Terengganu is really hot, seriously). I got to see people debate, which was entertaining and somewhat frustrating. Plus, I got to spend time with good company, instead of being miserable alone at home. I was even one of the admins of the semi-official Twitter page, which means I had a taste of tweet-famous-ness, hahaha! Who am I kidding, people didn't know it was me. :(

Other than that I've had a few visits to the doctor, and at one point, the hospital. What's wrong? Nobody knows. No symptoms, no nothing. It's like a certain part of my body just decided to stop doing it's job all of a sudden. Alhamdulillah, all tests show normal results (weird, but at least there's nothing critically wrong). I guess I'll just have to wait and see, and attend my appointments. Rest assured, there's nothing to worry about (as if ya'll were worried about little ol' me).

So, I'll be starting university soon! Well, pre-university, to be exact. I'll be doing foundation in law, in UiTM Kuantan. Alhamdulillah, it's the course I was hoping for. I've heard numerous good feedbacks about that place from seniors, alhamdulillah. I'm actually excited to go! Not so excited about orientation week though, but I'll survive.

I'm basically leaving the science stream, which some people find weird, since I'm from a science school. InsyaAllah, this is the right choice. Why? honestly, I feel that I have more potential in that field (I don't know if this is a valid statement, since I have 0 experience in the Law field). My natural aptitude had always leaned towards talking, and I do feel passionate about debate. In school, I wasn't that excellent in calculations, my math teachers will fully support this statement. Science is interesting, but it wasn't my forte.

Here are a few comments by my teachers:
"Don't become an engineer." - Physics Teacher
"Well, you're no scientist." - English Teacher

I started seriously contemplating about taking Law when the school counselor mentioned it, and supported by my Physics teacher. I discussed about it with my parents, and got their green light. So I had a pretty clear target even before I sat for my SPM. Alhamdulillah, I did not have to face tough decisions on what courses to study, where to study, etc. It was somewhat of an easy choice, actually. I take it that Allah has made it easy for me. :)

I was able to ask lot of people who have first-hand experience in the field, a few law students and also, a practicing lawyer. They certainly helped me to understand the nature of the course, and also regarding career opportunities in the field.

I am in no way implying that I expect this course to be easy. Personally, I don't think the question is "which course is easy?" but rather, "Which course am I willing to strive for?"  and this is my answer. Hopefully, the right one.

If it doesn't burden you, dear reader, please pray that Allah eases my affairs in my studies. Jazakallah khayr in advance :)

So peers, I hope we all have made the right decision. All the best in entering this new phase of life. May Allah bless us all :)

Till next post, Assalamualaikum. :)
