Assalamualaikum and Good day to all of you who reads :)
Few days ago, 30th of January to be exact, I checked for my Degree application result and ALHAMDULILLAH I got it (thanks to my dear friend, Tney for the link and reminder to check!).
New semester will start on 3rd of March, less than 2 months from now!
To be perfectly honest, I was having mixed feeling before hitting the Accept button because I had a lot of thoughts in my brain. Not that I am ungrateful or happy about the result, I just personally have a problem of thinking too much too soon.
The idea of going & not going for it was equally proportional so what better ways to do in this modern-day with all the technologies? I posted a picture on my Facebook and the responds was quite overwhelming, but in a good way.
I guess I just needed the boost from my friends & family that have go through the whole process of accepting the offer.
Okay enough with this weird little thoughts of mind (I just needed to get it out of my brain) and let's get on with few updates/stories I would like to share and maybe you would find interesting to read.
Journey to Degree
As per the title of this post, I am going to update my "Journey to Degree" as often as my time I will have on hand.
I decided to do this just so that maybe one day I can read back and see how I was feeling or maybe it will help me get on track for my studies somehow. I am not sure how this going to turn out but it will be a little project of mine and I am hoping you guys would want to come along. :)
Of course after I hit the accept button, the next procedures are what I dreaded most since I have gone through them on 2007 for MRSM intake as well as 2009 for Diploma.
The first and foremost is printing the documents to be filled and checked. DONE.
Next, going to the medical checkup. DONE.
Medical Checkup Processes
I think this is the part I dreaded the most because the thought of peeing in a cup is just...ugh. But I successfully dragged my ass to the Community Clinic at 8 in the morning with my brother to make an appointment on 4th of February (my day off) and I didn't even bother to shower.
The booking process was fairly easy. Just went to the counter and talked to the officer about the procedures and stuff I need to bring. Booked a medical checkup later the afternoon at 2 and went through the whole shenanigans.
Went back home and did 2 loads of laundry, not a surprise though because every time is the same amount of clothes. XD
At 1.45 pm, my little brother and I went back to the clinic and wait in line with the number 1313 on hand to be called. Called to the main counter for registration but am pretty sure my name are already registered since I went there twice for my previous medical checkups. Paid RM 20 and then I am instructed to go to counter 21, room 8, counter 7 and room 6.
At counter 21, my blood pressure and my weight are taken. Not too sure about sharing since I don't even sure if the readings indicates that I am fairly healthy or the other way around.
Room 8 is the X-ray room where I was instructed to take off my shirt, bra, necklace and hijab (the X-ray officer was a Muslim woman) and change into a red "shirt" which to be honest, I am fairly uncomfortable in doing so because who knows how many people have worn the "shirt" before I do. It went well nonetheless.
Then, the most icky and disgusting part starts at counter 7 which I have to take a small cup and pee in it. I know it is compulsory but every time I had to do it I dread myself just because the fact of peeing in a cup definitely does not sound hygienic. Not that I am a clean-freak but I just can't fathom the thoughts of peeing in a cup and holding it while you are peeing.
Okay okay do not imagine what I just wrote.
I did it anyway and get it over with after few minutes.
Later I went to room 6 to get my eye checked and my vision is perfect. Thank goodness.
Then the boring part came, waiting in line again to be called by the doctor to finalize everything.
When my number was called, I was so anxious and I am so blank that when I walk back into room 6, I was clueless as of where I should go because there are few different stations but after few minutes the doctor called my name and asked me if it is my name. Guess I was in daze or something, I did not answer him the first time and he asked me again before I nodded.
The doctor was a cool guy. He ask a lot about if I did this for continuing studies or working and ask if I have ever been into any surgeries and some other stuff.
Dear doc, if you somehow came across this post and you are single, I think you are awesome & handsome! However you did make me feel a little uncomfortable and stiff when you asked to "lift" my hijab so that you can check heartbeat and my pulse. A little too close for my comfort. -_-
In the end, after the long 2 nearly 3 hours of being starving and sweaty and grossed out of peeing in a cup, I passed all the test so this is one of the things I can check off of my to do list!
Will update more as I dedicate time to finish up all of my to do list! ;)
P/s; Usually I proof-read and make few adjustments but it is quite late now and I don't really have the leisure to do so, please bear with me these few weeks or so IF I update more!
