Three papers down and I only have one more to go! I can't wait to get that over with and have my one month break. Oh, and I might be starting college for the second time around in July as there is a 60% possibility that I might drop my A-Levels. My mom has always made the option that I could drop A-Levels but only if I don't do well in the exams. We haven't exactly discussed about me really dropping A-Levels yet but I think we both pretty much assume that I will since the three papers that I sat for were absolute fuckups.
Besides that, I have also decided to major in Economics which is one of the reasons why I've decided that studying locally would be better for me. If you're wondering why, well that's a reason I do not wish to disclose. It's nothing personal but I don't feel like I need to explain anything. I know, I know, what happened to 'being set on law for sure'? Come on, do you honestly believe that the indecisive me would ever stick to my decisions? To be frank, I never wanted to do Law because I felt like it was such a cliche job for those who weren't good at science and it's true, that was the reason why I chose Law. I was just like the rest of them - wanted a professional career without having to rack my brain with anything science related. Of course, not everyone is like me, some actually want to become lawyers because they do have passion for law. But unfortunately, I feel that there's too many people doing Law now and I worry that there won't be job opportunities for me with all the excessive lawyers in our country. So that is one of the foremost reasons why I don't think Law is for me along with other reasons that I found after doing some research on the internet.
You see, I didn't just decide to change my mind about Law and do Economics instead for fun. I know what I'm getting myself into now which I wish I had done earlier so that I would apply for upu with the majors that I currently want to do and not what I thought I wanted to do before. So even if I get offers from IPTAs, I will most definitely not be going there as I didn't apply for Economics. I applied for Law as well as something that I think is called environmental architecture? Hahaha, don't ask me why I applied for something I wasn't even sure what it is about because my mom did the whole upu thing for me. Yep, my life decisions are always done by my mom and my mom only.
Anyway, now that IPTSes are my only choice, I'm having trouble deciding on whether I should choose somewhere that's near to home or in KL so that I'll have easy access to everything at my leisure. If my mom read this, she'll be all like "Are you going there to study or to have fun?!", hehe well it doesn't hurt to do both right? Or does it? I take this seriously because I'll be there for a very long time so it's only best for me to think about this wisely. The nearest to my home would be MMU and the farthest, well, that would be the rest of the colleges in KL. My heart is sort of set on Taylor's Lakeside though since the place looks super nice and contemporary. My mom asked me why don't I just stick to HELP and I was like, hahahaha sorry no. It's not that I don't like HELP, I do! But that is if I was only doing my pre-u there since it's only for a short one and a half year. Spending the next four years of my life there? No thanks. I think I've stated here before on how the buildings and environment play a huge role in me choosing where I want to study. So HELP is definitely out of the question and I'm sorry if I sound like a kacang melupakan kulit, HELP.
The problem I seem to be having is not where I will do my foundation, it's as to where I'll be doing my degree because I don't really understand the degrees that all these different universities are offering. The only two universities that I know offering an Economics degree alone are MMU and Nottingham. As a matter of fact, Nottingham even has its own School of Economics which was why I initially thought of going there besides the fact how close it is to home. Sadly, nobody in my family thought the lecturers would be good. Just because it's a campus under the UK university, it doesn't mean the staffs and everything are as good as the ones in the UK campus itself. However, for other universities like Taylor's, they don't offer Economics degree alone. They're kind of like a joint between either Accounting, Finance and Business. My mom told me it was better doing those kind of degrees since it will open up more job opportunities for me. But the thing is, I don't think I'll even be graduating with an Economics degree. I mean, if it states Bachelor of Business (Hons) Finance and Economics, doesn't that mean that I would be majoring in Business? Oh man, I never thought Business school would be so confusing.
