Someone’s gotta do it

Just realized I haven’t blogged in more than a week..again. There were days when I woke up wanting to blog about a million and one things but never had the time to, or days when I had all the time in the world but not remember what was it I wanted to say.

So when that happens, I guess I have to resort to the lazy kinda blogging where I just post random pictures I have from my camera/ Photo Booth ;__;

This is a small part of my Symbolic Logic homework. It’s DAMN freaking hard!!!! Sometimes I kinda regret taking this class but I wanted to try something completely crazy and different before I graduate, and I’ve always wanted to take a Philosophy class and I was hoping this class will teach me how to reason logically wtf

It’s a combination of Computer Science+ Philosophy+ Math *faints

My hair is so long now!! And to think that 6 months ago it was still the boycut kinda short. I didn’t bring my hair straightener back with me so I have to suffer the wrath of having shoulder length hair 🙁

(btw, this is EXACTLY how big my room is, from that door till the rack of clothes.)

Bought new pair of shorts for $9 ^_^

I had over an hour to do my makeup the other day for Korea Night so I did a makeup video! But now too lazy/busy to edit the video and post it *stabs self

Trying too hard to be feminine with this hair wtf

I’m procrastinating having to complete my application for Teach For Malaysia and now the deadline is looming closer and I have no time to finish it *HORROR*

Truth is I just don’t know what to write about. We have to write a few essays and the application is actually way harder than I’d thought. Don’t know what Teach For Malaysia is? It’s a non-profit organization modeled after Teach For America aiming to end education inequity. Basically what they do is recruit people who are passionate about making a change in the education landscape in Malaysia. TFM fellows will then serve for two years in high need schools all over the country and this challenging and meaningful experience will hopefully transform both the schools and the fellows themselves.

To be honest, I’m not 100% sure if this is the right thing to do. Teach for America is extremely prestigious, and they only recruit the most promising and bright individuals. Teaching in challenging schools have proven to be very beneficial to these fellows who usually go on to be exceptional leaders in their fields.

Teach for Malaysia, on the other hand, is still at its infancy. It was hard enough for me to convince my parents that I want to go back home after I graduate instead of looking for a higher paying job in the states, imagine having to tell them I want to go back to TEACH. and earn probably next to nothing. “But someone’s gotta do it!” I’d argue. “Well that someone doesn’t have to be you!” they’d retort.

I don’t know, I’m still pretty confused about a lot of things. I know I’m incredibly idealistic and I know my idealism will die down eventually once I enter the big scary world of corporate firms and the neverending cycle of materialistic culture of the working world. So I feel like I have to do something like this before I get swollen whole by the real world. Wait, what am I talking about? Teaching in high need schools IS the real world, and it’s probably more real than people would imagine it to be.

Favorite quote by Wendy Kopp, the founder of Teach for America:

We don’t need to wait to eliminate poverty to ensure all children have access to the kinds of education that will ultimately give them a way out of poverty.

IF we make the most of it, the students who overcome poverty to realize their full potential will grow up to become the most inspiring leaders the world has ever known, leaders who have the strength and character that come from succeeding in the face of extraordinary challenges and have the kind of education that will allow them to solve the other problems we face as a society.

We can enable children in urban and rural school to make history. The question is simply, whether we will.

I’m sorry this post has taken a more serious tone than I’d intended it to be, but the more I sit and think about what I want to do after I graduate, the more I know for sure what I do NOT want to do. I don’t want to be caught in the rat race, well not just yet at least, and I need to know I’m going back home for a reason.

Now, I just need to write a kickass application essay so I can fulfill that reason! and kickass essay will have to wait until tomorrow cause I’m dead tired now after finishing my incredibly tedious accounting exam T__T

    I never really knew you or what your ideals were, so I don’t feel like I have any right to say this, but I think you’ve come a long way, and I just want to say good on you. 🙂

  4. Tien says:

    You inspire me with your energy Suet. I love and enjoy teaching and maybe I should look at the Teach For Malaysia programme you mentioned. This is the first time I have heard of it. Thank for sharing and soldier on! Cheers!

    ^^ I always enjoy reading the more serious side of u..coz everytime it will give me new hope… Thanks for highlighting the TFM.. I will definetely look at it.. But unlike u…I’m a working mom .. I had been thinking of quiting my current job to do something that I enjoy and can contribute to community/nation but is always worried/afraid if the changes would have an impact on my family…
    What is the TFM criteria? I write really bad essays.. sure hard to pass…n my coconut also start to get rusted after for so many years… But i really have the passion to teach for a better nation and also finding my long lost destiny…

    that is just awesome, i’d love to do that in china! being a 9-5 droid scares the shitz outta me =_____= i’d rather do sweatty menial labour lol— sth that leaves me time and mind free to do things i like, not asking for much just keep me from starving can liao, ok dun believe me i’d sooner join the rat race when i see a window of opportunity…… which is why milking your idealistic side as much as possible is so important

  7. strawberry says:

    wow your symbolic logic homework looks like some ancient language inside some peru caves wtf. but the course sounds so fucking interesting!!!!! i really wish i had the chance to go overseas study. i really love the liberal environment and how they offer so many interesting and diverse courses for you to choose, while letting your individuality shines.

    when i was in your stage of life right now i told my dad i want to teach english in china. he said no because i need practical experience not teaching experience. i’m still slightly bummed. on the plus side work is decent, but i still think, oh man what if..

  9. Grace says:

    I’m impressed by your dedication Suet, and am happy you’re going after your own ideals. I think you might also be interested in being part of a start-up that I’m involved in, aimed at helping intl students looking to study/are studying in the US. I’ll drop you an email to tell you more. Have fun during Spring Break!

    For what it’s worth, I think TFM will be at the very least, a self-defining/soul-searching/giving back to society and ergo, fulfilling thing.

    Atta girl!

    Now for me to write that essay for PEMANDU too…

  11. imsohigh says:

    you go girlllllllll

    pursue your dream… come back to malaysia to help make our country a better place.. that piece of paper looks difficult , u must be a very smart person. but i heard asians are good in maths so i guess its ok.

    and dont ever become corporate drone zombies salaryman 9-5 white collar slave… those people are at the bottom of the food chain..

  12. student says:

    I’m also really interested in applying for Teach for Malaysia! I’m in my 2nd year of Psychology now and I was incredibly inspired by The Ron Clark Story (watch the movie and youtube him if you haven’t already! He’s such an amazing teacher) and I just love the idea of being able to inspire and motivate kids to achieve their potential, especially those who come from difficult backgrounds. I think you’re doing a really great thing and I’d actually like some tips from you if you get in-and also regarding work experience and stuff because your resume is probably a lot more impressive than mine, haha…

    P.S.:You’re more than qualified to apply and I’m pretty sure you’ll get in.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari.
