Remember a time in kindergarten when stars meant everything in the world.
It's like getting 100% in ur Maths paper,
feels like u won the Best Student of the Year award.
U get a star for colouring within the lines (which i always fail to do)
and more stars if you could draw some cute pictures
Teacher says "Nice drawing (ur name). Draw some more for me next time ok?"
Then u come home,proud and show ur parents how many stars u got for the day
U are as happy as a clam :)
"Pfft! It's just stars!"
Well, dear friends, this is just the beginning of all things to come
the start of the life as a contributory in the community
In time, as we grow up..the simple innocent cute stars fade away...
turning into numbers and 6 different letters in the alphabet
Our motivations turn to be the best in 'accumulating numbers',
having the highest score in class means that u're the cleverest student,
u turn to be the teacher's pet.
The normal n not so clever students are left to be on the border line.
The competition begins!!
The institution of education is more to the outcome of studying hard - the straight A's
People perceive that passing exams with flying colours is enough to make everyone happy..BUT happiness is short-lived.
The learning and understanding of a certain subject is important,
We absorb and take in the information (kena suap) without any skepticism
and practical use.
Read,read and read. If u don't read u don't get the grades!
I mean, i many of u guys out there can still differ between
di dalam and didalam ??
Why do we study about HISTORY? The past is the past..why should we reminisce it then?
These things that teachers never told us before, we only find out as we grow old - exposed to the harsh reality of life.
However, as i'm finishing my degree, i realized that tis the evolution of the star.
University life is no longer about the grades, but it also involves the intrinsic factors as a human being.
Since we were a child, we learn that a simple, beautiful star motivates one to SHINE.
