I have some happy news for once! The results of my grades for this semester is out, and I made it through with straight As again. With a GPA of 4.95/4.00, I believe my school is going to have their first ever student on the dean's list with pink and purple hair. .
I don't know how I made it through. I've been busy managing my instagram, leading a youth group for an activism project, being the publicity officer of a school club, being a research assistance and having a social life. I did not really put as much effort into this semester, so I was expecting horrible results. I guess I tend to estimate myself a lot. .
I'm really happy I made it this far. The first in my family to make it to university. I grew up with parents who do not speak much English and were unable to help me with my school work because they barely made it past primary/elementary school. We had difficulties paying for school fees for my diploma, and getting a laptop for my studies. .
Sometimes, I look at my classmates who have no problems paying school fees, whose parents are highly educated and who had an advantage in life, and I feel bad. I wish my life can be that easy as well. .
But this is my life. And i have to make the best of it.
