Salam to all.
Hello. Im Aisyah Munirah and Im so lame. Like lame with the capital L-A-M-E.
Its one am in the morning and Im still not in bed. Taking this advantage because I feel like doing so and you cant stop me from doing that so go away. Wahha. One busy and dreadful week I say. Fuh my eyes were sore twice. Because I cried for something stupid. And I think its PMS again, so aint bovvered.
So to start from the beginning, I was shortlisted for JPA scholar interview. Okay I was thankful and grateful to be just shortlisted eventhought I didnt put high hopes on getting my scholar despite my 'cukup-cukup' makan results. But people say, they assess you through how you interact with the interviewers and how well you make yourself stand out. The results were announced on Thursday, 8th of April and my interview is also on Thursday the following week. Basically, I only have 1 week to prepare and get all the documents settled. So I kinda like 'lepak2' and didnt read the offer letter properly. And by Monday baru nak buat semua tu. So there goes mon pere bising-bising sending those vibration particles to my ear drum saying my procrastination and bla bla. In the end I said to him 'Ba, I regretted procrastinating this'. And he 'ajuk' for what I have said T_T K whatever.
So I gathered with Illy, Marjeena and Balqis (budak-budak straight A's tuuu -.-) via Skype to do some discussions for the current issues together. Googled all sorts of interview tips and a few does help. In the end, we all stayed up late but I guess it worths the time. On the morning of the interview, I have no appetite at all. Weird, compared to the interview I went for YTN, I was less nervous for it. But for JPA, I feel like my stomach doesnt exist anymore when I arrived at Intec, S. Alam. But hoh, Teh Tarik is always the best ^^.
Okay interview at 940 when I checked for my name and it was 830 by the time I finished slurping Teh Tarik (and I drank a quarter of the glass only). Waited and waited, oh yeah I met Mun (my dormmate last two years) so I chatted with her, hoping that the anxiety will just go away. But it didnt, so I talked with my group members and everyone was very friendly but I was the only malay, there was 3 indians and 1 chinese. Got scared because I knew they can speak more fluently than me, but oh well I think everyone played their part well in the end.
It was more relaxing and I felt comfortable talking to them. I was very calm, tak percaya I. Haha. They were interested in what&why I chose the program, why that particular country and then the discussion was about 'First class country, first class mentality'. When I heard the title
I was like..crap man. I really hate talking like a philosopher, because I am not one. Therefore, I just ranted out whatever I can give and it sounded nothing but crap. So there you go. Haha. Lets forget about that, the moment they said thank you I was relievedddddddddddddddddd like mad. Oh yeah now I can sleep forever. After that I waited for Kaka to come, she just lives nearby the area and had our lunch at McD.
Mon pere picked me up frm Intec and this is when the story gets a bit ugly. I mentioned before that I had Teh Tarik just before the interview right? Okay after the interview ended I went to the cafeteria and had another Teh Tarik but now lets call it as Teh Ais. When I was already leaving Shah Alam, mon pere was hungry so we stopped by at this food stall at Kepong. I didnt
eat anything because I was already bloody full and I ordered another glass of Teh Ais. Wooh 3 glasses in one day. When he was all stuffed up, the car was already moving and I started to feel sooooo queasy.
'Ba stop the car, stop the car!'
And there I go barfing in one go, beside the main road. IT WAS HORRIBLE. IT WAS SICKENING. Rosak baju biru aku :'(
and I dont wanna talk further. Its quite an adventure day for me. Whatever it is, Im thankful that I did my interview well. But Im not putting high hopes on the scholar. Just tawakal :)
