I was showing a friend my EE2006 Digital Design lab report yesterday and his first reaction was like: “Woah writing thesis arh you?” Well, it wasn’t really surprising he said that, it does look as if I am submitting my FYP report or something. I did put in a lot of effort into preparing that report. And my friend sort of correctly pointed out the fact that I am too passionate in the things I like.
Indeed, I am too passionate in things I like and this is my strength as well as my weakness. I am sometimes just overly passionate and I soon realized it’s not at all a good thing at times because I tend to neglect other things, or other modules in the context of studies. Maybe that’s the reason why I am so depressed and stress this semester; EE2006 is the only module I like.
I was somewhat happier last semester, many would have noticed. That’s because I enjoyed reading the 2 electronics modules as well as the 2 stats modules. And that’s probably why I screwed up my EE2011 (Electromagnetic) cos I never liked that module and that’s the only module I din like and the module I spent the least time on. This time round it’s the opposite; I have only 1 module I enjoy. It is a chore, to go through the modules I so dislike.
However, I am glad. There shall be no more compulsory core modules pre-allocated to us from year 3 onwards. I have my freedom to pursue the modules of my interest. But some people say the specialization track that I have chosen can be quite tough, I agree. IC design, who the hell wana do that? Design modules always have their horror stories behind them. Maybe it’s not going to be scoreable, but I believe I am going to enjoy it. I enjoy designing circuits and see them materialize into a real product. This is why I should not be too concern with the grades and classifications, and just perform to the best of my ability. And this should be the way studying should be, enjoy the process and heck the grades. Of course I am not saying grades are not important...well, just dun go to the other extreme..everything is about balance. =)
