Its taking a while for me to digest I’m no longer a student. Final year has been the toughest time in uni, and I am so glad I’ve made it! Months ago, I felt like getting to this phase (graduated) was just so impossible.
It wasn’t just stress over getting my overloading projects, assignments, experiments, but this time I had to deal with a heartbreak. Yes, I got dumped and I had days crying over my lost love instead of my undone assignments. But, life goes on, like it or not, I still have to get myself together.
“When you fall in love, you pretty much sign a contract that says there’s an incredibly high chance that you’re gonna get hurt, and you have to be okay with that because it doesn’t matter how many sleepless nights you spend holding onto your chest for dear life praying to God that everything will be fine, chances are they won’t be and sometimes there’s nothing you can do about that. Sometimes you have to accept that not everybody in your life is suppose to stay.” –
Despite that, there’s so much more important that was going on and I pretty happy to have achieve them. Anyways, here’s some highlight of the last semester of UG,
FINAL YEAR FINAL SEMESTER!
1. Pre-SEDEX – Individual poster presentation of the final year project.
2. Final Year Project, FYP Presentation
Presentation has always been my favourite. I’m glad I manage to go through them without any cue cards and I don’t shiver that much anymore 😀
3. THESIS Completion!
Best feeling ever when I get hold on my very own thesis. 8 months of work- experiments, reading and writing, all compiled in a book, MY book 😛
4. Plant Design Project, PDP
In a team of 5, we built a chemical plant of 1,3-PDO from crude glycerol. This team project has taught me so much as it’s a whole combination of all the courses I have learnt in the early years of my undergrad study. Makes me feel like I am an engineer after this 😛 , So glad I’ve made it through with good grades with my teammates!
5. Early Graduation Trip with the wiragang in Langkawi
FUN, FUN, FUN – Quote of the trip: Hehe, so happy, LANGKAWI! *spin and dab!
6. Graduation Dinner
#CEJAN12 themed Bollywood vs. Holloywood.
7. Photoshoot session
After the very last paper of my undergrad years, Engineers in Society, had a quick photoshoot session with my Haja, Wiras and coursemates before everyone move apart.
8. Signing off, 19188
9. Job interview
Last but not least, I got a job! I attended a full day assessment for the second screening in Indonesia in November together with 24 candidates from Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. Started of with comprehensive presentation on their products in a team, individual interview, case study and workshop. Blessed to have teamed up with a great group and met the whole bunch of fun-going people.
All in all, 2016 has been rough and tough year for me. But, looking back right now, it was such a productive one with so much achievement, not just in terms of knowledge and experience but also I’ve strengthen bonds with my friends and got closer with a new friend ^^.
Thank you once again to the Almighty God for always guiding and staying by me throughout my journey. Never lose faith in Him, ever! Always looking forward to see what lies ahead of me, hopefully 2017 would be a beautiful one 😀
