I wonder

what I would've done if I hadn't done Psychology. Sometimes I do think that I don't have the "talent" in studying. Doing assignments stresses me out to the core...makes me emo a LOT. I was browsing through Facebook (procrastinating as usual) and I came across a Facebook page my primary schoolmate sent me, asking me to "like" it. So apparently she opened her own music school. I still remember how she wasn't that good academically in school but she always had a passion for music. She played the piano and violin brilliantly! Now when I look at myself, I can't help but to wonder if I hadn't stopped music classes, or Taekwondo classes, or other fun classes that I used to love would I be doing something different now? What if I was never meant to do Psychology or worse still, masters?

I have a lot of those questions about myself too! What if I went to art school? I might not get PR and a job. What if I did childhood development? What if I never left Malaysia? I'd never grow up. What if I didn't meet XX person? I might be lonely/single or still stuck with the previous person. But honestly everything we've been through in university has made a difference, be it the way we have been trained to think (I'm more logical and have better independent problem solving skills now), our soft skills(all those essays and presentations in Honours and tutoring a variety of late teens), the people whom we came to know... I think we shouldn't regret just because we now find we aren't as passionate in our fields as we have first started but appreciate the other things on the side that helped shape us. =) Who knows, I might start my own business or study what I did not 6 years ago in the future, just like many other people I know who have done that.

Enjoy uni ok? You don't know how often I wished to be in your position.

Hey girl! I just saw your comment. Didn't notice it. Haha...I guess I'm kind of glad that it's not abnormal to feel this way. =) Most of the time I feel like I've gone through a lot an am proud of who I am today, some days I'm just being emo without a reason. lol. Thanks girl! <3
