Result of The First Semester

Sorry I didn't post this as soon as I've gotten my e-mail last night but it was so late and I was so tired waiting for my results to be e-mailed to me. I was going crazy and I kept refreshing my e-mail page again and again. They said it will be out at 12 am and I was like a cat on a hot brick waiting for it. The funny thing was the time was still 10:15 pm. However the adrenaline just kept rushing and and rushing and I just couldn't wait it no more. When the clock showed that it was already 11:50 pm, it was the longest 10 minutes I have ever had. Finally, it was 12. I refreshed my e-mail homepage. Still nothing. My Facebook news feed were filled with my friends posting about their marks and results and giving thanks to God. I was getting more anxious. 12:07 - still nothing. 12:20 - STILL NOTHING. I was going to bursts into tears and I feel like I want to punch anything that moves. HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO ME!? I was jealous because everyone was posting about their results already. I hated the situation. I began to think that they had some sort of malfunction to send my results to me. It was already 12:40 and I refreshed my e-mail homepage again while getting sick and tired of doing it again and again. And then...

...I finally got the e-mail.

I was pretty sure my heart skipped a beat. I mean literally skipped a beat. I stared at it 5 seconds solid before I opened it. But I opened it anyway.. my hand was shaking to scroll down.

My jaw dropped.

My eyes widened.

I stared at the computer screen..
..and then tears.

I GOT 4 FLAT! STRAIGHT A's!!! I am so happy and I'm very very thankful to God!! Seriously, without Him I wouldn't get such results! :') From day 1, I said to God to give me a chance to glorify His Name by getting good results and letting everyone know that I AM God's child and He lives in me! All I wanted was to get at least 3.5 but to get 4 FLAT is truly amazing!! I couldn't thank God enough. I cried when I saw 4 FLAT it was truly overwhelming.

If you must know, when I was in secondary school I was terrible in History. VCS 105 is art history and we have to remember the artists, name of a bunch artworks, the different periods of art and a lot more.. It was hard but how come I was so good in it whereas really bad in secondary school when it comes to History? God. He helped me! There was this one time I was so scared because we were going to have a test. I panicked and I tried to memorize EVERYTHING. While I was studying, I had a very strong urge to read this one particular topic and to really focus it. I feel like the Holy Spirit was guiding me to do that. So I did. I focused a lot on that topic. The day on the test, that one particular topic came out on the essay section. I answered it really well and i got full marks on the essay and I got the highest mark in the class for the paper. 19/20! Seriously, God is great. Other than that, God also helped me during my tests and my exams. There are countless times that I don't know the answer to the questions and an answer popped up in my head out of nowhere and it turns out to be right.

For me, I don't think I spent a lot of time studying but I was a determined student though. It's just that the amount of time for me to sleep was even higher compared to the time I studied. I got tired and overwhelmed by the amount of assignments given. So I slept a lot, yeah. But because of that, I had to finish my assignments at the last minutes though and it caused me to not getting enough sleep. Then night before our final assessment, I stayed up until 2 am and I wake up at 5.30 am. It was brutal. A lot of my friends didn't even get to sleep though, so thank God for that few hours of sleep. Besides that, I always do revision the day before the actual test or exam. But praise God, I still got one of the highest in class. How did it happen? God! A lot of my friends studied a week before the test and I did it a day before. Worst, the night before. I wasn't lazy or anything it's just that I have to finish all assignments first before I study.

I gave all my effort and when I'm tired, I asked God for rest and He actually gave time for me to rest! When I was stressed He made it go away. While I was studying the night before my final, I was stressed and I got headache so I stopped for a while and read the Bible because I felt lost. I didn't realized a few minutes to meditate on His words was already enough. Jeez, I gotta stop saying that I don't have time to read the Bible.

I received countless messages of people congratulating me. Thank you but really, if it wasn't for God I wouldn't get such results :)
