Few more days and it will be over. No more research works, no more reflection papers, no more case studies and no more nothing. Few more days and my summer term will be over. Crunch time for me now. Juggling all these school work and trips to my mom's hometown to take a break is tiresome. But definitely fun. I am the type of person who doesn't really care about my grade - not a grade conscious at all. As long as I pass the subject and the course. And I love how cramming really works for me. And that doesn't mean that I learned nothing right? No amount of numerical value can gauge the learning you have. Maybe it's not the concepts or the "academic" aspect of learning that I love. It's the love of learning and seeing things in a different way. Quite often people would ask me the purpose of my Graduate studies. I cannot give them concrete answers. Do you remember how you hated going to school before and how you would wish to just graduate and earn money right away? That's how I felt before. And now that I'm relatively older, I choose what I want to choose not because I need it but because I yearn and love it.
Taking a break from all of these chaotic paper works lying around my bed. It's tough. It's draining. But I love it. It's the persistence. The resiliency. The hardwork. The patience. It's the hidden curriculum of Graduate school that I love.
Few more days and it will be over... Got three more vacation weeks before the school opens in June. Back to teacher-mode again. I might enroll again in Graduate school. And in Driving school. And in a Latin or French class. Or just read books maybe.

oooppsss... Don't be cynical, I've shown my cool prof. the photo and explained him where I would put it and he willingly obliged.
