Juggling work and school at the same time is really no joke. Weekends are also spent doing assignments or revision. I have grown accustomed to getting little sleep every night.
After so much toil, I think this maths module is going to crash. I was quite clueless during the exam. I haven’t had this feeling in such a long time. In fact the last time this happened was back in polytechnic year one. Nostalgic, in a bad way. Though the years fly by, Mathematics will always crawl out from the grave of time to plant a blade into my back.
For the first time, the prospect of failure is quite real. Dropping A Maths in Sec 3 wasn’t a big deal, because it didn’t affect my O Levels. I managed to scrape through E maths, and even scrape though dumbed down poly maths. Although it seems like I was the dumber one for not practicing much.
And now the creaky and weak foundation of rules and formulae has proved insufficient of holding up university-level mathematics. And oddly enough after the exams we are still struggling to complete the assessed E-learning questions!
Fine, retake this module if I have to. I don’t really care anymore. At least I know where not to go wrong now.
Notes to self and future calculus students:
1) Do your elearning every week or regret it.
2) Practice makes perfect.
Work is all right so far, though its about to become more intense. More skills to pick up, more things to remember. More overtime to do. It’s good. I like learning new things. I just need to watch the workaholic streak and time management.
Everything is going according to plan so far. I even had time to squeeze in a few Latin Masses (Ordinary and Extraordinary forms). It’s time to work on some of my other priorities.
