As all of you know, Tuesday night was my virgin night [this just doesn't sound right] at my new school, and it was definitely quite an experience for us. Firstly, both the travelling time and traffic were super packed. I knock off at 5.30 and it takes almost 1 and a half hours to reach the campus in Clementi, which is just in time for the lesson that starts at 7pm. Hence my dinner has been reduced to sugar donuts bought from the bakery during lunch time. Although they do provide some small bites during the half-time break during the lecture, it's hardly enough for guys like me to fill our stomachs with.
Oh, and talking about the lecture, it was practically packed to the brim too. The lecture hall could easily accommodate around 300/400 seated students but when the lecture started there were still people who couldn't get a seat. So much so that they actually called me up yesterday to ask if I was willing to swap to the Saturday lecture instead. Of course I wasn't! Who would want to waste their Saturday going to school! The lecturer himself was quite engaging, not surprising since he was an ang-moh, and I quite enjoyed the leture, although everything was going at a lightning pace.
Pipi's sister was right, Uni studies is so much different from poly studies. Trust me, you will never be able to catch up with the pace if you don't go back and revise a little when you're at home. And guess what, I feel that I'm adopting back to stuy mode quite nicely! I tried to write up my own notes from the lecture material yesterday and although it took slightly longer than previously, I must say I'm still quite pleased with the result.
And one more thing, there were so many young girls attending the lecture too. Well, anyone that looks younger than me definitely would be young. 18-20 year olds, seated together and giggling away while comparing some photos on their handphones. Maybe I'll get to know a few new friends sometime soon, but as of now I still haven't seen a single familiar face or anyone that is taking the same course as I am. Still have to do a bit of searching I guess.
