September 19, 2005
I guess, it is time to say good bye to Warwick. I've completed my course and now just waiting for the final results by Nov and graduation by Jan.
And as I write this blog, I am indeed feeling a little emotional about leaving the uni. Even though I stayed on campus for less than an year, it felt like a home to me. I get that comforting sense of belonging and fellow feeling whenever I'm there…just walking or driving along the winding roads across the uni.
I came to warwick ..resigning a very good job in which I had been working for the previous 4 years. So walking away from that comfort zone, the well paid job and direct into an academic life amidst students quite younger than me and from vastly different cultural backgrounds was a big change for me not to mention a significant hole in my pocket. But I've to say that it was exciting time and I have enjoyed every moment of it. And I'll always look back to my time here as something worth the time, effort & money – with pride and a sense of achievement and adventure. It will remain for the rest of my life as a special memory.
I'll miss the lectures, the group works, the cricket matches, the badminton club events, the parties, the student cinema, the art center, the assignments, the dissertation, my friends/coursemates/flat mates, the tocil kitchen/room, the summer barbecues, the learning grid, the career service, and perhaps most importantly – DC++. Oh dear, there are so many fond memories…
My best wishes to all those still doing their course enduring academic rigours and enjoying student life and to all those who have finished and embarking on a more serious but probably as adventurous and exciting journey of life.
Perhaps I'll get a chance to meet you all again in this life time or the next.
