Do you remember the time when you're a teenager?
You kinda have a list of possible future careers:
- a professional badminton player
- a renowned food critic
- a cool CSI agent
- a fit and healthy dietitian
- an articulate lawyer
And you even have this aspiration of getting married young so the age difference between you and your firstborn would not be that large, you're going to open up your own restaurant even if you already have a job just because you love the food industry, you'll be one of the most influential video makers and each of your masterpiece will touch the hearts of many, you want to memorize the Quran by heart, you planned to become a composer or a lyricist so you can produce songs that you had always wanted to sing but you can't because you don't have the gift, you wish to capture lots and lots of inspiring shots with the camera that you have or you hope that you would publish several creative writings just simply because you love to write and you're expressive in that way.
Yeah, the good old times huh? Well, I am impressed really with the human mind. We can have so many wishes especially when we were younger.
But really, what's so different now compared to back then? You're still you. And all those dreams were yours. Sorry, I meant all those dreams ARE yours, insyaAllah.
Did you get the point? Dreams will be dreams as long as you want them to be. You've dreamed them for so long; and it's about time to realize them =)
The Nottingham Advantage Award
Anyway, I'm gonna talk a bit about Nottingham since some of my readers complained that I talked too much about myself :P
Basically, I am now an Award student and thus, I'm gonna complete at least 3 modules during my stay in Nottingham before I graduate in the year 2014. And hopefully, I'll attain the Nottingham Advantage Award along with my double degree. So, my first module is:
Student Associate Scheme!
Actually, I got an email yesterday saying that I got the job, alhamdulillah =)))
I guess I'll be working alongside teachers then, at a local primary school with all those lovely kids (^^,)
I guess I'll be going back to classrooms then, the place where I had always enjoy spending time in (
the place where i can actually focus unlike the lecture halls where i'd rather skip and study on my own).
I just can't wait to go back to school!
Frankly, I do relish my teenage years. I was aspired to go further, take a chance and don't ever look back...
