I have now reached another milestone in my Foundation. Just completed the last paper of my finals this morning, and now we are close to the end of the course, 11 days more, to be exact. I wonder if the days are dreadful or precious - a part of me wants it to end so badly, but another does not. I might have repeated this numerous times, that I am really grateful to have enrolled in ASASIpintar. It has been and still is a journey that I would never forget throughout my life. As I am counting the last days on campus, I strive to cherish every moment being here, and appreciate the things that I would lose after I leave. I now have the sudden urge to write on my life in ASASI, but I would keep it until after C.I.N.T.A. Eximius Graduation Dinner, and will then share everything once and for all.
Days nearing the finals were burying. From projects, to assignments, to reports, to more reports, to research, to tutorials, to revision... Everything seems to swamp in under an extremely brief time frame, and we were enslaved by the overloading burden. Nevertheless, we were able to carry through what comes in our way, and finally able to triumph over our worst enemy - the finals. Well, to say that we are triumphant might be a bag of wind, as we have merely finished it, not knowing how our results would be like. However, it is truly a liberation to say then we have at least got over it, because I am certain that many of us have had sleepless nights with the hopes of acing through the final semester. If we were to leave, we would leave in pride, without any regrets. I came, I see, I conquered, I won.
We were always reminded to not be too contented of our accomplishments, as we are barely halfway through our lives. Greater and tougher challenges awaits. It is never wrong to be proud of ourselves, but more importantly is to be humble in pride. As we are basking in the thought that we are capable to overcome many things, lets not forget the people who stand by us, those who comfort, encourage and strengthen us along the way. Let us not forget our family, friends and relatives who never forget to pray for our success, and remember Him who makes all things possible. We are weak, but with Him, we are unbeatable. He is the ultimate Enabler. Thus, I am thankful the I have reached this far, and am even more thankful that I have the opportunity to attain more in the future. In the course of life, there will be limitless obstacles and trials. In times of struggle, just be strong and courageous, be fearless and persevere, be calm and thankful.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9
