Yup, I’ve started school, all my dreams of going overseas to study is officially buried deep deep into the ground. I’m currently studying in uniSIM, if you don’t know what’s that, it’s SIM.
So what’s the difference between SIM and uniSIM?
There’s no difference. One has a more expensive school fees, and the other is government subsidized school. From the experience of working outside for close to 2 years, what I see is there’s really no difference between studying in SIM / uniSIM/ MDIS / whatever. Cuz apparently there’s only 2 categories in the outside world. You’re either in the “Local U grad” or “Other grad”. Yup, not much difference. Main point is, SIM Global doesn’t really have the course I want either, and so yup, here I am.
I’ve just had my first 2 lessons the day yesterday and yesterday.
To describe everything in one sentence : I’m tired before the lessons even started.
The crowd in Clementi is really… hugeeeeeeeeeee. Not huge, but hugeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I can’t even get up when the bus came. Whenever a bus came, the crowds will all buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz to the bus, and the best thing is when the bus is full, there’s still a hugeeeeeeeeeee crowd left. I only got up in the bus when I just stood at one side and refused to keep following the crowd.
One time of that experience is enough to traumatize me. So, I took another route, I took the MRT from Orchard to Buona Vista and took bus to the campus from there, the bus is less crowded, but the amount of time took for travelling is still the same. I guess no matter which direction / way / method I took, I’d have to spend 1 h 30 minutes to reach the school from Orchard.
I remembered when I was young and watches some random Singapore drama, there’s a few characters in the show who work and studied in night school, the young / pure / innocent / ignorant / naive me then was thinking how come the characters work and study at the same time.
Now I know.
Don’t ask me if there’s any handsome guys in the class or not. Because there’s really none. Even if there is, people in class don’t interact with each other, so not much difference.
I hope three years down the road, I can look back at this post and say “it’s not that difficult after all”. *cough*.
