the college (not) life

Take a deep breath and prepare for what’s coming next. I will proceed to reveal all the truths that I have gleaned, all the insights that I have been privy to, during my first week or two of life on a college campus.

Ready for it?


It’s no different from high school.

…and once again, I’m reminded of that song that I heard on the radio that day when I was with my dad, eating lunch up in Cameron Highlands. High school never ends.

This isn’t to say that the experience has been a bad one so far. Rather, it’s been quite enjoyable thus far. I’ve managed to make my dorm room look like home. Meaning I have four barren walls, my toiletries laid out neatly on top of the most convenient flat surface, and little in the way of anything else.

There has been very little work assigned to us, but I imagine that will change in the weeks to come. So far, the most engaging assignment that I’ve been given is to write up a resume which will be used to help me find an internship for the summer. I’ve stuck largely to staying in my room, venturing outside only to eat, go to classes, and to get enough fresh air to remain lucid.

Oh. The campus is beautiful.
