What is life? The word is so simple yet it brings so many questions... Is it worthwhile to struggle so hard to achieve something that will further bring troubles in the long term? or is it important to stay happy but without achieving anything fulfilling. Well, humans, homo sapiens are engineered to perform beyond everyone's expectation, but sometimes they tend to deviate from the true principles of life, honesty, honour, love and friendship. All in the name of race, the race to perfection, success and material gain.
The real life, in my opinion is life without great expectations. Parents are pressuring their young just to be able to pursue their childhood dreams is not uncommon nowadays. Will you want to wake up from your bed and suddenly felt that you had wasted many years of your prime years studying but without any interest at? Hopefully not. Period. I had a schoolmate, lets say he is A, his parents wanted him to be studying in science field especially to be a doctor. He, at first wanted to be an engineer, something that is possible since he had achieved a commendable result in his public exam and moreover he is eligible to enter, ahem, UiTM... Not to say that he is incapable of succeding but he just lack of what i call "interest".
Though he manage to get an offer to pursue his medical studies, i doubted he will always be happy, from the look into his eyes. I always believe to be good at what we do, we must have interest, it will not bore you down and you will never regret in your later life. Another friend, an interesting type one, he wants to be a farmer but he seems not to be doing anything to be in it... its possible but sometimes i felt that if you want something, just GO AHEAD.
I notice that my life in school and my previous college is very contrasting, one way or another. In college, everything is not spoon-fed, that's why there's a place called the library while in school, even the answers for practical in STPM are sometimes given straight. How ridiculous. But you can't blame anybody, the school library is open only after school, teachers are too busy with sports nonsense, crappy administrator and bad education system. What to do?
