Assalamualaikum. Double Happiness! First of all, today, I had my Passing Out Parade in the morning. Started with my 10km route march followed by the Standard Obstacle Course then with a solitude marching parade led by my own OC, Captain Segar G. Sad, but happy too because I am no longer a recruit. Some of the NCOs said that the most memorable part of their NS life is being a recruit. Well, I am not sure if I will miss that part of my life. Hahaha, the push-ups and torture. I am also touched by my Captain Segar for trusting me to be one of his admin members. Initially, there were 4 people who are fighting for this position. And finally, the position goes to me. Alhamdulillah. I do not really care if the camp is far from my place because I really want that job. The OPs Room wanted me to do the scheduling with them but I choose to stay in Charlie Company to be an admin clerk. I am thankful to Encik Onn, CPL Maurius, CPL Timothy, CPL Lionel and
LTA Asyraf for believing in me. I hope I will not let them
down in a way or another. I am pretty scared actually after hearing this and that from the current NCOs and Clerks but I have to take it in my stride. Every vocation has its pros and cons. Let whatever that is sour be the cons. After 11 weeks in BRTC, I think my patience level has gone up(hopefully still escalating). So, I think that will help me bear the nagging and scolding from my superior. Anyway, next week will not be a busy week as the new recruits will be enlisted in 2 weeks time. So, I will get ample time to adjust myself working in my Captain's office before the the new recruits come. Hopefully by then, I will have a longer hair!
Another happiness is a letter from National University of Singapore. I am really happy that I am accepted into NUS but the faculty offered is my 5th choice. I can't believe why I am rejected by NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Science when it is the least stringent faculty to be offered to potential students. It was my first choice and I am offered my 6th choice which is Civil Engineering. I shall just accept the offer and try to apply again next year. This time round I am going to apply to all three universities in Singapore. Anyway, I should be happy that I am accepted by one of the best faculty in NUS and ranked 10th in the world. Some of the people whom I know got rejected by Faculty Engineering are accepted by Faculty of Arts and Social Science. Went for the introduction lecture last week and I find that the subject is interesting but my biggest worry is that this thing that I am going to do in 2009 involves PHYSICS which I hate so so so so so so much. Eh, but people say that if you hate something, most likely it will be something that you love most at the end of the day. Do you think it is true?
