Passion Here? Or There?

Star Education today had a story about a guy who got a scholarship to study in Cambridge U. He enjoys it very much, and so full of passion he spoke about it.

He insist the importance of education, speaks about scrimping on meals, and yet enjoys every part of his year there. The lectures and coursework didn't appeal to me. It sounded rather exhausting, but he still likes it. However, CAMBRIDGE U. Woooooow man! It'd be fun saying, "I'm studying in Cambridge", and here all the "oooo" follow after.

Another article spoke of a person studying some course that has BOTH science and arts well induced in it. From chemistry to literature. That sure sounds fun, but studying in colleges isn't really affordable, you know? Besides, passion for everything, is it really in me? I'm not that talented *laughs*.

Then there was another article about engineering. The chancellor was saying how engineering has become very popular this year, as people realize how "hot" it has become, but never as "hot" a course as medicine. Again, passion was crucial in the course of engineering, while stating how "it's actually not that hard". I'm sure for those with passion that is.

This whole issue of PASSION has got me jittering to find passion. I like the whole shyt about studying science and all. Understanding it, and noticing its application around, finding out about its mechanism and besides, it makes me sound smart. In my head. I really don't mind the studying, really. But I can't stand the exams. I'm don't think I have that passion to do it. I'm always in awe with people like them, like Atta who's so determined (and on his way) to become a doctor.

I remember last year in physics, Mr. Lam showed us a CD Software. Then there was one part about the particle lab in Scotland or something, where they built a circular path underground and test particles by accelerating them. Not so clear my explanation, but it was the SAME thing as the one in Angels&Demons, the Dan Brown book. Lemon & I were stunned! Seriously, I thought it was just Brown's figment of imagination. I couldn't believe I was learning about it in the classroom.

Then the other time in CSI, they did cromatography, and explained the thermite process! Its nice knowing what we learn in textbooks actually are still in use, and not outdated. So many more other things write a smile across my face because of what I've-learned-and-seen-in-life.

I don't really know what I wanna do if I'm forced to opt for something else. Engineering isn't an easy sub, and it sure isn't cheap, regardless of wherever I do it. I thought of switching to arts, but what if its the wrong choice? Like something that's got to do with language, but I've been learning science for so long, is it really wise to change? When I've no basics. I know many people do it, but.....

Anywayz I'm left stranded, searching for passion. Anyone know where to find it???

Please inform me A.S.A.P. Thanks.
