After all brain-wrecking chaos and arguments all over the house, and all over my worn mind, the oh-so-crucial-life-decision is made. One fine night when I was free, I got mum to sit down and had a long talk about it. Questions about my future, starts off which the course I am supposed to pursue, then about my career, my life later.
"Actually, you better consider properly after so long, you know, this is your life, I can just provide advices and guidelines. The final decision is still up to you. If you think you're not confident in sciences, don't do, because you're just wasting effort. Instead utilise your strengths. If you think your language is good, do something related to language. Language opens to a lot of options. But one thing to tell you. The world out there isn't simple. Society is complicated. What you study isn't going to put really into real practice. Seen people who are engineers becoming salesman? Seen people who are teachers becoming businessmen? The world is very practical. A degree is just a passport to get employment. The rest of your performance, lies largely on your attitude towards life. One word, ATTITUDE."
Therefore, I knew that I still had a very important choice to make. The decision which would probably change my life forever. It was about 2am in the morning, we sat there in silence.
"Think about it, make that decision when you're ready," she said.
When everybody went to bed, I prayed in darkness and silence.
This morning I woke up at 7am despite the lack of rest. I went to mum, woke her up, and told her,
"I want to do law."
She asked me: "You serious?"
I broke it. "Classes start next Monday, so I'm going for registration on that day then I'm going for class."
"Yeah, you should. Because your language is good, and law uses a lot of language, and you're the type of person who is good in memorising stuff, so go for it. One thing, don't slack like you did in From 6. You already screwed form 6, don't screw your life. You must excel in it."
So, that was it.
I am going to be a law student.
(This is so good to be true)
*Above all, I thank my family for unremitting support, and God for His unconditional grace.
I randomly put up this Christmas tree because I feel like doing it.
