If I Could Turn Back Time...


...I'd surely want to be a student again!

Whenever I think back to my student days, I'd make a silent wish for time to reverse; allowing me to go back as an eager, innocent learner again. Some of my best moments in life occurred when I was still a young student. My sole mission was to learn and excel at my course. Nothing else occupied my mind aside from maintaining my good grades and getting that degree, which at that time seemed so distant; almost unreachable!

There was no worrying about bills, work presentations, meeting targets, meetings and so on. My focus was solely reserved for studying, hanging out and partying with friends in college! Don't get me wrong though for despite my playful ways, I still made sure my grades were good. During my university days, I made the Dean's list every semester! As much as I loved partying back then, I had to maintain my good grades especially since I was on a scholarship. I did not want to have to pay back my sponsor so liked it or not, I had to excel during my two years in uni, which I did so YAY!

When I hear some of my student friends talking and sometimes complaining about their classes, I actually feel a tad envious! I am no longer a student and working is seriously such a big difference from my carefree student days. Working translates into huge responsibilities, even when you are working from home like me. You have to pay your own bills, manage your bank accounts and you still have to make sure you earn enough every month to cover your necessities. You no longer have your parents to support you; for you are now working and earning your own way through life and whatever lies ahead.

To my student friends, I hope you guys will take this time in your life to truly comprehend and grasp the meaning of being a student. Your main responsibility for now is to attain excellence in whatever it is you're currently studying. Put aside everything else and focus on earning those good grades, which trust me; will definitely help you realize your dreams in life as you get older.

Enjoy your student days while it's still yours for the taking, especially today when you are presented with so many new outlets and opportunities to help enhance your student status. Course Hero for instance, is an open coursework website for college students. It is a new Facebook Application, which means you can actually sign up for this site using your Facebook account. Once registered, you will be able to enjoy the many advantages of this social learning network, which allows students, educators and self-learners to publish, share and view academic resources online.

If you need additional lecture notes for a missed class for example or you're looking for a clearer explanation on certain theories and concepts you've learned in class, Course Hero is the right source for you. Among others, you will be able to find all your Computer Engineering Homework Solution or UCSD Homework Solution here. With millions of study materials and over 200,000 textbook solutions, you will definitely enjoy meeting and interacting with over 300,000 fellow students and classmates, simply by registering today!

Okay guys, it's time for Mariuca to turn in now. I have a big day ahead with so many things to complete but first, I need my beauty sleep! Until my next post, I hope you are enjoying your week so far. :)

zublizainordin,  March 11, 2009 1:04 PM

Dear Marzie,

Time?

Rewindednizationnessness ke?

Hehehehe...

You should know...

http://atotalblog.blogspot.com/2009/03/we-in-malaysia-are-hit-economically-not.html

Kaboom!

Training companies tempat I berpayung tutup dah since mid last year.

Since January, blank!

Zero activity.

I informed Shinade a moment ago, and now you. Selainnya tak sempat. Especially Wong Jowo dan Emila, dan lain-lain lah. Kalau depa bertanya, itulah ceritanya.

Hehehehe...

This is the second time in my total life.

The first since we know each other and being best friends forever.

I am?

Still Totally Happy.

The Sky And Earth...closer now.

Me and Allah, just like before...

Ane,  March 11, 2009 1:33 PM

I'll be stalking! :)

Ane,  March 11, 2009 1:34 PM

Lol! Shemah! :) haven't been able to chop anywhere lately, the last time was
in LJ's money blog, I think...

Ane,  March 11, 2009 1:46 PM

Ahahah, why not Chun Li Debbs?

Ane,  March 11, 2009 1:47 PM

So I guess it's but normal to be toothless at 1? I guess he might as well be
toothless, it makes breastfeeding a lot tolerable! :)

Ane,  March 11, 2009 1:49 PM

indeed we must Debbs! :)

Shemah,  March 11, 2009 1:50 PM

stalk away!! ;)

Shemah,  March 11, 2009 2:01 PM

oh yeahh Ane!! savour his toothlessness.. when my eldest had all his teeth.. i was almost dreading breastfeeding. it wasn't painful but there are moments! LOL!

Shemah,  March 11, 2009 2:02 PM

chun li was sooo horrible it seems. better not watch it ane! :)

Ane,  March 11, 2009 2:05 PM

I know Shemah, sometimes he nibbles and it hurts, I can just imagine if he
has teeth! Yikes! :)

Ane,  March 11, 2009 2:06 PM

So disappointing how they make a cartoon or a game into a movie and it
doesn't fare well.. it ruins the whole thing!

life ramblings,  March 11, 2009 2:44 PM

if i could turn back time, i'd love to go back to my college days. :) :)

life ramblings,  March 11, 2009 2:45 PM

i missed my course mates dearly and those gorgeous hunks in my college. ;)

Shemah,  March 11, 2009 2:47 PM

you're right ane.. the adaptations usually don't fare so well.. but i really am excited about harry potter!! can't wait!!

Ane,  March 11, 2009 2:50 PM

Oooh, I am too Shemah, even though it came out somewhat different than that
in the book, I still love Harry Potter's movie series... :)

Shemah,  March 11, 2009 2:56 PM

yeahhh... agreed! but i don't really connect with the casting of that girl as Luna Lovegood or Ginny Weasley.. what do you think?

Ane,  March 11, 2009 3:16 PM

Ginny Weasley, I guess not really, but Luna Lovegood is okay I think... :)
Ginny Weasley could've been better on film! :)
