Class Starts

Week 1 and day 2 of this semester, I still haven't got myself enrolled because I've failed 50% of my subjects last semester. Pretty annoying because I have to repeat the same subject again. Now I have to consult the student counselor and the program coordinator to discuss about my problem. Hope I can enroll and start as soon as possible.

For your information, currently I'm taking Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering). I've been studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) since I was in form 4 at SM Teknik Miri and then continue on with my diploma. Although I've been studying this field like for 7 years already, but I never dream of becoming an engineer.

I'm more interested into business field. Actually it's my parent's idea that want me to become an engineer. I've been discussing about this mater with my parents a lot of time but yet they still want me to continue on with the EEE. I've also discussed it with my friends. I'm really upset but I cannot do anything about it. I have cousins and uncles working as an engineer and they got a really high pay which is more than RM 20 thousand per month. Maybe that's the reason why my parent's want me to work as an engineer, but sorry I'm not interested.

This semester, actually I've planned to change my degree program and switch to business. Discuss and explain it to my parents but yet they still not agree. Until we went to visit my dad's friend's house for Chinese New Year. This uncle keep talking about education, about his sons and others. So I join the conversation and explain about my situation to him. He agree with my idea to switch course but he advice me just to complete it.

And we came up with a conclusion, since my parents really want me to finish it so I just take it as a present for them. Although I'm quite a stubborn son I would really love to see my parents happy.

I'm planning to finish this course as soon as possible and I don't wanna waste anymore time spending my life with studying engineering so that I can pursue my dream - to be the greatest businessman.

Yea Adeline, how strange life is. Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. That's the reality of life. We can't resist and control them, so we have to learn how to go with the flow.

i love this entry. i think yer dad's fren is right, u shud just finish it off 1st but i also think u shud follow your heart of pursuing yer career ambition. dat way, you ll have 2 disciplines background in you. Elisha the successful business man with an engineering background.. man, dat perks up de resume!

Yea, i should follow their advice because I just left 9 subjects for me to complete the course and get a degree. Then I'll might look for a job to develop my professional experience and also studying business part-time so that I'll have a good foundation to start my own business.
