Not because today is the first day of school (sounds like primary students ha? 😉 ), also not because I was attacked by English virus, no specific reason actually…just want to write in English. Frankly speaking, I was worried about my semester one result, especially for EDF 6233 – Theory and Practice of TESOL. Can you imagine (better don’t try to imagine, otherwise you’ll end up being stressed like me), I worked on my final 4,000 word essay assignment in three days 😯 . I’d finished around 2,000 words when I suddenly felt like “don’t want to do this anymore” (kind of weird though) and totally changed my topic. Huwaaaa…..!!!!!!!!!!! I spent the last two days in front of my loyal laptop and slept for two hours only. Ten hours before the due date, I felt like want to throw up everytime I face the monitor. Five hours approaching the due date, I felt like I want to smash the monitor… 😡 , my hands were shaking and I felt like thousand of drums banging inside my head. I didn’t have enough courage to ask an extension since the lecturer has given a week extension already. I went to campus with red eyes and was extremely shocked knowing that Prof. Marie Therese (my lecturer) gave another one week extension for those who asked for it…huwaaaaaaaaaa!!!!! It’s not fair! All I could say “what ever will be…will be”
My holiday wasn’t in fully relaxing atmosphere; I kept worrying about my result. Finally, last week (July 11th) Monash University officially released semester one result. I opened my student account and was very shocked to see “D” in the list. OMG! Am I that bad? This unit worth 12 credits! It was before I realized that D stands for Distinction 😳 . Felt so stupid at that time, my mindset was still in Indonesian setting (need to reset it 🙂 ). Alhamdulillah I passed all unit with satisfying result. Two units, one D and one HD 😀 , not bad ha? My deepest gratitude goes to my beloved family and friends who have been very supportive and patient during my ups and downs here. Love u all guys! 😛
FYI, at Monash University exam result can be accessed online via my.monash portal (student account) or sms (we have to register first to get this access, and it’s for free). The result is released at the same time for the entire faculties.
