Finally went to settle my clearance in uni ; legal unit cleared, finance , cleared.. library, cleared, security- cleared.. last stop was the A&R (Admission and Record). Seems like they have a new system installed and I do not have to visit the various office again with a clearance form. Good that they do (most of) the things automatically, online.. and on the spot. And the fact that I’ve delayed my clearance (to get my academic transcript) by..lemme see.. 2 months, (so that I can take part in MUDS under the uni category), there was no rush, no queue and I get to do 1 thing at a time. But far more important, I get to support my team ; IIU X Team which I created around 2 years ago. A humble beginning of less than 10 people..to a strong hold of 53 of them taking part in the recent MALAKOFF University Duathlon Team. Last night, we hosted the IIU X Team MUDS Appreciation (Iftar-)Dinner for 2nd time. First time was last year.
Met 2 lecturers to request for recommendation letter; Prof Sohail Imam who taught me Research Methodology and Statistics Application, and Prof Ghassan who taught me Rise and Expansion Islam to 132AH (a history subject. and 1 of my favourites). And after that did my clearance at the library and finance unit. Off to A&R…got my Academic Transcript. Gee, I hope I ‘move on’ gradually and with ease, as I am pretty comfortable going in and out of the uni for the pst 1 month handling the X Team despite the fact that I am done with my studies, or at least my formal education. Learning, on the other hand is a continuous process. In fact, psychologically, learning happens when there is a relatively durable change in your behaviour and thought processes+knowledge.
Today is memorable.. Personally memorable 🙂 10 years…of struggling.. (cewah, ayat macam power).. halted my Medical studies before I made the switch to Psychology in 2006. I found myself. Like finally. Being able to choose what I want, and what suits me better. I am nearly done with MUDS .. the dinner , done..but after this I still gotta write an event report for the Sports and Recreational Center..the students will get their registration fee reimbursed and some allowance to top up. So, there, will still be busy going in and out of the uni. At the same time I still have to follow up with my lecturers who are writing the recommendation letter for me. I am very thankful to them. Talking about memories.. I am a sentimental person.. Memories sake is a big ‘sake’ for me..haha.. so uhm, the last person who I saw before collecting the academic transcript was Faiz Abu Samah, a member of the X Team, and after collecting it, met Tuan Wari , my Wataniah officer.
Walked back to my car, and taking photos of the document I just collected.. and a few tears of joy while driving out from the campus. I just gotta take it in.. andget in my head that it will be another chapter. A continuation of my journey in this short and meaningful life. Showed my dad the transcript, and he congratulated me 🙂 And asked me when is the convocation. According to the officer from the Admission and Records Department, it’ll be in early October..wait..lemme check…it will be on the 3rd of October 2010. Session 3..and starts at 8am !!!! hhuhuu..I’ll do my long run in the convo hall nnt. Haha.. 🙂 I am one thankful, gracious and one humble gal ..as of today, and hopefully everyday for the rest of my life. I have many people to thank to..which I think I’ll write up a bit in another post.. but most importantly, Alhamdulillah.
