The Problem with Students in My College

Play.jpg

I notice that there’s one same pattern that the students in my college share which is complaining about events and activities in the college. They complain that there is lack of event organized by the college and they even complain about the event itself. This is one problem that seriously annoys me and I’ll tell you the reasons why.

“Treat People How You Want To Be Treated”

o-GIVING-facebook.jpg

“Treat people how you want to be treated”. This saying is very common in our lives. We heard it as early as our childhood years most probably from our parents. They tell us to always treat people well in order to be treated well in return. But in this crappy world that we live in, this saying is not accurate anymore. If we continue to give and give and give, we won’t get anything in return. People are naturally ungrateful, I just learned that. I’m trying to be kind to everybody and I don’t mind that much if they don’t do the same to me. However, there’s one thing that I consider important and will piss me off if people don’t do the same as I did. The sharing of knowledge.

Now before I go any further I want to warn you that this will just be a rant of mine. Hey, I’m just a young immature college student after all. So now let’s begin.

I’m a Terrible Teacher

Teachers

I never EVER want to be a teacher. Why? Simple, because I’m freaking bad at being one. I can be an average teacher if the people I’m teaching have a pretty strong fundamental knowledge of the subject or they are just fast learners. However, If they don’t have any basic knowledge or talent, well, this is when you can see that I’m in fact a terrible teacher. Let me give you some examples.

The World of ‘Cables’

computer cables

Cables. We are living in a world where we can’t survive without these ‘cables’. What are cables you may ask? Well, it means a group of people who has the authority or power over something. For example, you want to apply for a job but your academic requirement isn’t sufficient. But you coincidentally, know someone from inside the company. They then help you to somehow bypass the requirement needed and get you a job in the company. Basically, you use them to get a job from the inside. These inside people are called cables. I don’t know if anyone out there uses this term the same way as we do but here in Malaysia, we meant it that way. Now, I’m going to talk about one particular organization in my college that are apparent on having these kinds of people.

How I Suck at Gossiping

gossip-2

I’m really bad at gossiping. REALLY BAD. I actually once tried to gossip with two of my friends… But end up caught red handed. It was really funny. Think about it, a guy who usually doesn’t gossip, tried to gossip and then got caught… sigh. I’m traumatized by the incident and now I’m very scared to even talk about other people. I’m scared they would magically appear behind me. There are reasons as to why I suck at this unbeneficial activity. I managed to divide it into some points.

I don’t know people

I just can’t remember people well and I tend to forget them easily. If they’re not important in my life, chances are, three minutes after I know them, I’ll forget them. Because of this, I tend to not give a damn about pretty much everyone. Because I know for a fact that I’ll forget about them eventually.

I Might Make Drastic Changes

leadership-2

I might make some drastic changes and decisions. I would quit being a leader and just focus on improving my English language proficiency. I’m not going to decide now but if my Business Communication Mock Interview result is below my expectation (because the session really was bad), I might quit everything. Why am I quitting? Well there are many reasons.

I’m just not a good leader

Now my roles are not that big. I’m a class representative, an unofficial leader of my college’s English game exhibition booth and a representative for my course of a club. I should be able to handle them well because of the small little roles right? Well no because it’s very difficult for me. Okay take this example. A higher up instructed me to spread a news to my subordinate about an event. Normal people would take only one minute to spread the news. However, I’d take 15 minutes thinking about what I should say, what will people say about me and just the pressure of TALKING. Yes, I’d take 15 times longer than a normal people. Some of you might say that if I expose myself towards those situations more, I’d get better. Well I’ve done other roles for almost a year and I didn’t get better so I think I better give up now than later.

Why I Hate Formal Debate

debate

School debate is probably the worst thing anybody has ever thought of. I despise it. When I was at school, I entered an English debate competition between classes and I really hated it. Well mostly because I’m not fluent in English and when it was my turn to speak, I stuttered and barely speak anything… Oh man that was a really bad experience. Anyway, I hate debate because it just doesn’t really make any sense. It doesn’t actually discuss about the problem at hand. They go round and round trying to prove that they’re right and the other party’s wrong, even if they have to make up some stuff. Did you know that Empire State building was actually built three thousand years ago by Mongolians? Well now you know. You can confirm this fact in the 3rd edition of the Oxford dictionary on page 274 line 68.

Enough blabbering let me just demonstrate how ridiculous a debate actually sounds.
