RJ Question: Provide a snap-shot of your learning journey. (It can be any aspect of learning within RP environment)
Response: My learning process is like an old man running a tri-shaw. My learning journey has been much slower than my peer who are like driving cars, and I felt that due to me having more difficulties in my learning, I need to constantly put in the effort to pull the tri-shaw, compared to my friends where to some of them they just need step the car peddle effortlessly and they can easily pull off by scoring well for their UTs.
Comment: Really? I’m surprised you found yourself to be an old man riding a tri-shaw. You do not give me that impression at all. Do try to find out what is your learning style. E.g. do you learn better by looking at video? That means you are a visual learner and you can learn faster that way. Don’t be put off by your own speed in learning. I find that you are able to do most of the work in class but you may lack a good studying technique that is needed for exams and tests. Will be happy to discuss this further with you.
I really thank God for meeting good facilitators. My secondary school teachers use to tell their students that when you enter into poly life the facilitators/lecturers probably wouldn’t give a damn about their student. But just by reading the above comments my facilitator, it is really heart warming and encouraging to know that there are people that have faith in me despite I do not believe in myself. For once after all the 290 RJ I have been doing for the past 4 semesters, this is probably the only RJ that sets me thinking and to do some serious reflection upon myself.
I ought to be happy… To think that I didn’t really treasure her, or even at a point of time I’ve taken advantage of the friendship. To think that I wasn’t really there for her the whole time when she needed a friend. To only come to wake up my senses after realizing that we’re becoming more distant. Now that she has found a friend, and they seemed so closed to the extend that I was neglected. But come to think of how foolish I’ve been all these while, I ought to be happy for her, shouldn’t I? But somewhere inside of me aches, I couldn’t ignore the fact that I think I’ve lost it, we’ve lost this friendship. Although it’s not as if we’ve totally stopped talking or had turned a cold shoulder to one another. It just felt like we’re never gonna be life before, something died there, the way we communicated is like we’re acquaintances. I’ve lost a best friend, my childhood companion. Despite I was condemning myself in every area that went wrong and led to such a consequence I have to bear, I just felt like I am aching in the inside because after all I have, and always, still treasure her…
I thought I just felt God reminding me of how a stepping into the Christian life begins; of how we would begin by making certain sacrifices, especially in the area where we need to loose friends. Come to think of it, and upon reminiscing how God was with me the whole time back then, it felt really comforting. Right now, despite I felt really down at the moment, I felt really at ease…
