It was 2 weeks ago, when I went to my mum's friend's place and met this Singaporean teacher. His name is Chris, married and has many years of teaching experience. We had a conversation and I started telling him about my difficulties in triggering my study mode back to ACTIVE instead of DEACTIVATED. That was also when I learnt that he was a lecturer himself. XD
He told me, "You cannot just rely on your interests and motivation in order for you to study! As a student, studying is YOUR JOB!"
I was struck. So it's my job... Maybe I knew this all along, but i just needed the right person to tell me. Haha, that always happen to me. =p
He suggested me to GO TO CLASS NO MATTER WHAT. He taught me something that I think I should share it with all of ya:
"You cannot choose to skip class just because you think you don't believe what will be taught to you. Going to class helps you understand the keywords and the main points to the current chapter you're learning at that day. Come on, nobody expects you to understand everything or the whole chapter in just 1-2 hours!!!"
"SELF-READING is the most crucial part of studying. It's all about exploring and understanding it by yourself. The teachers/lecturers/tutors/instructors are just there to guide you. In the end, it's all up to yourself."

Finally, after taking so many pictures, the reality struck me.
I'M IN PERTH!!!!
Although life has been better as time goes by, my heart has been uneasier with every passing day. For some reasons, I'm becoming stupidier, more lack of knowledge... the feeling of being a spoilt brat increases with every lack of understanding in me. Why was I so engrossed in my own world without knowing the outside world? How much more things that I don't know about out there? Was I meant to feel like this by coming to Perth? Was it meant for me to start being a man at Perth?
Coming to Perth...... it seems......
It's time to start back from zero and work hard to the top!!! Find my true self!!!
I have the inspiration... now I need motivation!!! Give me motivation, world!!!!
