So another chapter of my life has been closed. Remember how I started college? Now I'm out after just one month. My parents HATE that place.
I don't find it so bad. Staying alone in a strange, miserable city? I'm damn well strong to have had survived that. Kuala Lumpur wasn't how I remembered it to be. It is dirty, everything is in a rush, you cannot stop time and contemplate on life there. And yet I survived. I just didn't want KL to suck me in you know, be some sort of walking zombie. I don't know if I want to live in the city anymore. But if there was one thing for sure, i surely want to live alone. I like being independent.
Here's what my mom told a friend of hers about what she thinks of me:
"My daughters are different in their own way. but Manpreet has a mind of her own. She doesn't tell me anything and yet she's so focused in life, she has goals and she works towards it. But she's too independent. I wish she'd tell me more." Not the exact quote, but how I remember her saying it.
I'll be starting Cambridge A-level at another college, KYUEM. KYUEM is the TOP college in Malaysia for A levels FYI. It is ranked third in Asia.
I'm afraid, yes. I wasn't afraid for my previous college but I'm afraid for this one. I don't know what to expect for this one. We have a uniform for formal events(from what I've heard), and my biggest nightmare, two pieces are not allowed at their swimming pool. WHATTTTTT AM I GOING TO WEARR!! a one piece?? So I can look like a stuffed panda in a jail suit(inside joke with Phareeshta). I HATE ONE PIECES!!
a one piece swimsuit looks like this:
I cannot wear that! It DOES NOT flatter my body image! WHAT AM I GOING TO DO. I'll put on my shorts with that and swim and I'll look like some FREAK.
I'm afraid maybe because KYUEM is like boarding school style. It is something I'm not familiar with. I've always dreaded boarding schools. What made me accept KYUEM was because the boarding school style was a lot like the British boarding schools. Even the lecturers there are mostly expats, 80% of them are expats. Not that it was the deciding factor in me agreeing to KYUEM but it made me wonder about why these people would leave their comfortable lives in Britian and live on campus. YES they live on campus!
Oh well, at least I get to wear formal clothes to classes, I LOVE formal clothes. Now I have an excuse to buy more formal clothes! :D
PEACE OUT, Y'ALL!
