Many of you whom know me well will know how I yearn to return back to studies. For consecutive 3 years my application to the local universities (NUS, NTU and SMU) were rejected. The rejections were really disheartening. Looking at many of my peers who are already in their final year in their undergrad studies and I was still not able to study! I had tried to explore the idea of applying as a mature applicant, but the thought of waiting till I am 25 years old (that means July 2008) just make me feel even more "pek chek". I thought cannot wait so long lar, my brain won’t be functioning too well by then. Overseas studies were never really an option either as the amount of money spent is really too much for me and not wanting to put extra burden to my family expenses.
Begin to ask God what wrong with me, how come I never seem to be able to return back to study? Maybe is not time for me yet... But be faithful cos I know the Lord will show me the way.
The chance came when I saw the uniSIM ad in newspaper which the SG 4th local uni. I also saw a course that interests me greatly. I was excited as finally uniSIM were setup and approve by MOE for working adults to be able to study. Many encouraged me to apply and prayed for me. =) Thanks you!
When I went to clear my mailbox and i saw the sim logo... my heart begin to beat very very fast... and I realize is a thin enevelope.. and i was getting abit worried too when 1 month ago i learnt that over 2000 applicants applied and only 1000 places were offered. The worst thing? Poly grads formed the 90% of the 2000 applicants! So guess what? I glanced through and skip all the way to the last paragraph. I gonna show you what my vision show me :
............ denots skipping the words
"Whether you are studying ........., we hope you will achieve your potential............................"
Then i re-read again:
"Whether you are ......... career............. personal...... ........., we hope you will achieve your potential......I am confident that your study.............."
Too fast... Re-read again....
Then keegan exclaimed: "Eh they say Congrats! CONGRATS LEH!"
I scroll up and finally saw this line:
"Dear Ms Lu: Congrats ........................................................." (vision blurred)
Yeah! So silly me... why didnt I read the first paragraph? That is something about me. I always read things at the bottom. Especially magazine... sometimes i read from back to front.
Very sadly, I was not called for any interview for the scholarships. But I believe the Lord will provides. Should be either seeking for a loan or bursary awards to cover my education expenses. But Praise God =)
Hurray I am going back to study! >=D
Whoo hoo :D
