About Me

What is the first thing you do after a big exam?
Well I sort of developed this habit or ritual if I may call it. My friend would drive me to the nearest McDonald's and get myself a large set of burger with coke and fries with an ice cream as a reward to myself. And on way back home I would pump up the volume of the radio and sing out loud even though my voice is nowhere close to Snow White's. In fact I could swear I could kill a few birds that's flying above or the rodents in the drain. What a way to ruin the ecosystem. Sometimes I would sympathize with my friend who is driving that always suffers from the wrath of my screeching voice.

What was your most embarrassing moment in class?
One of my most embarrassing moments in class was during Drawing class.  I slipped and fell on a plastic wrapper when I was walking across the classroom. But I have to admit the way I landed on the floor was remarkably in style. Like one of those male models in magazines with the crook of my left elbow on my left bent knee and right arm straight with my palms and butt planted flat on the floor. Oh boy, the whole class laughed and whistled at me!

Name three things someone can always find in your bag/backpack?
3 things that someone can find in my bag is definitely my laptop, headphones and a diary/ journal.

About My University /College

Why did you choose this university/college?
Because it was the first name that appeared when I searched on google

Where is your favourite hangout on campus, and why?
The 2nd floor common room, my spot would be the table on the first row next to the window. Especially during the morning when the air-conditioner is switched on and the warmth of the morning sun rays shine through the window. Just the right amount of coldness and warmth.

If you could change one thing about your university/college, what would it be, and why?
I guess it would be the building itself. Maybe adding facilities like an elevator for those in need. Also some painting work, perhaps a splash of vibrancy of red to match our college logo, I feel out shoplot college building would seem more attractive.

Please rate your university/college on the factors below (1 = poor, 5 = excellent)

  • Location: 4
  • Campus Life: 4
  • Coursemates: 5
  • Lecturers/tutors: 4
  • Food: 4

About My Course

Who influenced you to choose this course?
No one. I decided to pursue this course by myself. My family supports me in every way possible.

What is the hardest subject/module in your course, and why?
Most challenging and annoying subject so far is 3D Modelling, learning Autodesk 3Ds max because it involves a lot of glaring at the screen  and utilising many complex components on the software. It's basically a software to create 3D animation.

If you were given a second chance to choose a course, would you choose your current course again? Please explain.
If it was under a different college I'd take up psychology. If it was this same college I'd still choose the same course and then eventually proceed with studying psychology. I'm very keen on putting those two things that I love to good use and pursue learning and teaching art therapy to those who seek help, those who are struggling with certain experiences and conditions.
