I just graduated from my Diploma programme, with a Vice Chancellor’s Award, which means that I scored above 3.5 for each semester in the programme. With that, I feel like I’ve experienced a lot of highs and lows throughout the two and a half years that I was in university. It was definitely easier at first, to constantly study and get As. To be honest, I don’t study that much, compared to my peers. I don’t do my revision every day, a lot of times I don’t even do that much revision for my exams. I know it sounds cocky but that’s just me. What I did do was I attended all my classes, especially my core subjects, I did most of my homework and I made sure that I paid a lot of attention in class so that I could understand better and I wouldn’t have to put some extra work into learning and revising on my own.
I guess it’s because even in high school, I’ve never gotten the hang of studying, revising and just, putting 200% in my exams. That doesn’t mean that I don’t do anything at all, it’s just that if you compare me to my peers, I’m so lazy that at some point, it makes me unworthy of my As. At least I feel like I’m unworthy of my As. Some people would say that I was born with it, that I’m just a genius but it’s really not. A lot of people put extra work outside of class, I just put my work during class.
Last September, I applied for the Yayasan Peneraju ACCA PPAM B Sponsorship online. If you do not know what ACCA is, it stands for Association of Chartered Certified Accountants . To be certified as a professional accountant, there are a variety of certifications you can pursue. For example, in Malaysia, we have the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA). Meanwhile, in the UK, they have ACCA and is recognised worldwide. I can’t brief you on this any further so you’re going to have to look for more information about it online.
Anyway, I applied for the sponsorship online and it was very very easy. They announced that the online application was open on their Facebook page so I just clicked on the link and it led me to a Google Form page where all you have to do is fill up your name, your educational institution, educational levels, grades and whatnot. It took me less than 5 minutes to do all of that. So, if you want to apply, make sure you follow them closely on Facebook.
Yayasan Peneraju has various sponsorship programmes for ACCA so you really have to go to their site and choose which sponsorship programme you would like to apply for. For me, I chose PPAM B. It is a full-time study programme for those who have completed their Diplomas or their CATs.
I’m not much of a shopper, I think I’ve established this many times before. I would obviously go on a shopping rampage if I ever have the money but I don’t have the money hahah especially now that I’m saving up for a trip in May. I don’t remember the last time I’ve properly shopped on an online site before but when I had to find the perfect ensemble for my faculty dinner a few weeks ago, I ended up going on Zalora to find the perfect shoes. I spent nearly a week, going to every mall in the city, trying to find the shoes I had in mind. I wanted something nude, strappy and timeless, AND affordable.
When it came in a few days later, it ended up being one size too big for my feet. There wasn’t time for me to exchange them for another size because when I received them, I had only two days until the dinner. I ended up wearing something else but I still, really like the shoes that I got. It was everything that I wanted; nude, strappy, timeless and affordable.
When I was in high school, I was committed to keeping tabs with what’s happening in the K-pop and K-drama world but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to sift things through and only listen and watch something that’s worth my time and dollar bills. I haven’t been watching a lot of K-drama lately, especially after quitting Running Man because it was distracting me from studying for my SPM.
It was my best friend, Crah’s birthday on December 20th and since she is such a special person in my life, I’ve decided to make the day extra special for her. That morning, we have planned to go see the sunrise at the beach and we’ve all set our alarms at 4AM, except for yours truly. I totally forgot to set my alarm so I slept through the night. When I woke up, everyone else overslept as well so that was a major fail.
Spotify is my favourite music app, ever. I remember scrolling through the best music on iTunes before downloading them (illegally) on my computer and it was such a pain in the ass. Nobody likes downloading song by song then transferring it to any of their devices. Well, at least I don’t. Spotify is the perfect music app because you can listen to all the music you would like for free, or RM14.90 per month. Of course, with stuck-up singers like Taylor Swift who thinks she needs to be paid for every single thing, there are albums and artists you can’t find on Spotify because, like I said, stuck-up. Apple made their own version of Spotify (such a copy cat, as usual) called Apple Music so I guess you can use that too.
Anyway, I saw that you can look up your Top 5 Most Played Artists & Songs on your Spotify account so that was exactly what I did and I thought I should share it with you.
I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately, especially with the great music that has been released in the past few weeks. Demi Lovato released her new album, Pentatonix released their deluxe album, Justin Bieber released a lot of new music and things have been great for my Spotify playlist. I’ve also rediscovered some songs I have buried in the thousands of songs I have.
