219# Sees no one, Be the One
Foreword: We are living in this world, where everything seems to be unfair to us. We can't change anything, but instead we can at least learn to adapt and accept.
He says: i find the whole supervisor thing a whole lot of bullshit, why cant i learn myself?
Mike says: well, is imu
He says: what kind of rubbish system doesnt allow self learining? do they think im THAT stupid?
Mike says: chill la
- Look, dude. We are going to do our electives during our semester break. We needed certified external supervisor to carry on our work. The reason why IMU wants us to do it with supervisor instead of doing by ourselves is to ensure we are doing the right thing. Not everyone can learn a thing by themselves like how you think you could.
He says: tell them something, i may not score as well, but im VERY VERY much ahead of most othre students in our batch in overall individual social performance. im a self learnt person, and i dont take all this bullshit about having a supervisor
Mike says: pro in initial D..
He says: no, hard to explain. you have to meet my kind of friends before you know what im talking bout
Mike says: i know. u r not a nerd but u are doin well at things besides studies. is that wat u tryin to say?
He says: no
Mike says: ...
- The deal when you stepped into IMU is not about how well you can perform in all the social performances. Once you get in into a medical university, studying medicine is the deal. The fact that you are doing well in other things besides studying medicine is not important at all. Take an example, i can draw well. But does anyone cares? What we need to do now is study medicine, pass the exams and be a doctor. And yet, IMU students are not that stupid as you could imagine. Not everyone shows fields that they pro in like how you did.
He says: my thinking style differs from each and everyone of M106
Mike says: well... very well
He says: the way i study, i dont follow the way other ppl study. well, i hardly tell ppl how i study
Mike says: mmm
- How do you mean by different? Of cause, everyone is different. And each of every one of us thinks that we are different from the others and always try to stand out from the crowd. Everyone thinks differently. And everyone has his or her way to study. The method used doesn’t matter. What does matter now is that one can understand what he or she is studying and then pass the exam. And you actually told everyone how you study, just that you never notice.
He says: so its not suprising no one knows, but the thing is i dont conform to stupid rules and regulations. ah, screw it.
Mike says : chill dick.. not a problem rite
He says: the more i talk about stupid management and stupid ideology, the more i feel like im surrounded by idiots
- Please don't think that everyone is stupid, they are idiotic or something. If you were referring to those who run our country, feel free to go ahead. If imu is fulled with idiots, then why is there so many of them who graduated from imu? How could imu survive then? I'm studying at imu too with you. I'm one of those who are surrounding you. Are you implying I’m an idiot as well?
Mike says: u mean the dress code?
He says: i dont mind dresscode, its the mentality. hard to explain to ppl who dont think my wavelength, no offence
- Seriously, i felt so god damn offended. Please don't jump to a statement where you're having Einstein’s brain and i'm having a bush's one. Why are you always try to compare how differ you are with the others? If you assume that you are having a higher mentality, then you should not step into imu at the first place. Imu is only for those nerds who you referred as. Don't always think that people other than your so-called group of people are stupid. Just that the others do not show off their mentality like how you try to let people know how different you are compared to them.
He says: you realize how you always try to memorize stuff? thats how other ppl study too, and thats not the right way
Mike says: just that its too extraordinary, if u stand out
He says: thats only one sign. im trying to get my brother to stp memorizing
- Do you realise that you are studying medicine instead of courses like engineering? For medicine, understanding and memorizing are the way for us to study. Understand how things work, then memorize the sequence and medical terms. Terms are in italics so we just have to remember according to its specificity. If people never memorize stuffs, how could people scored in the god damned papers? If you don't bother about memorizing then go ahead. You shall see the difference between memorizing or not.
He says: medic, if you take the effort to look for the real meaning of words its not memorizing. teaching wise, its not very fantastic. its all self study. so most students resort to memorizing. i study in a very different way. i go about looking for the meaning of the words
Mike says: i'm pretty sure that all of them who passed used a lot of memorizing
- Again, how different, what are the differences between you and the others? You think people all swallow all the shits alive and scored? Of cause they do have their own way to make it. You shall try to think at people's situation. Do you think that you are the only one who goes into the meaning of words? Don't compare yourself with those who screwed up alright. I do go into meaning of words as well. And the others too.
He says: dats why i got B+
Mike says: dun compare urself with those chinese sch students la
He says: but i dont care, like i've said, i m not there to please the dean. im not comparing to the chinese students. if you realize the so called english educated students are memorizing one way or another. memorizing is one thing. understanding what you memorize is another.
Mike says: of coz ppl understand first only memorize. dun compare urself n joo, he is diff.
- If one doesn't understand at the first place, things that memorized will be forgotten very easily. If you try to look into how english educated and how chinese educated people study, well, you know the differences. But i'm sure that most of the chinese educated students in our batch scored A or A minus. Instead, not all the english educated people passed.
He says: basically the way i operate is very different from how anyone would think a normal person would operate
Mike says: u stand among us all la..
He says: i dont show it much cuz i know IMU ppl all stereotype thinking
Mike says: i think ppl do noticed ur diff
He says: they notice it in the wrong way
Mike says: as in?
He says: kinds of ppl that i really dislike- rooney. i dont hate him as a person. i dont like him for putting me down for not knowing as much as him
Mike says: but he keeps on givin wrong info.. he is not puitting u down. but the way u did may be
He says: but the thing is my scope is wider than most of his stereotype medic student thinkin. i can talk bout almost anything, so dats abit about how diff i am
Mike says: dun underestimate the others la
He says: actually, i've over estimated them
- Again, you are emphasizing how great you are. I thought people would only emphasize how great God is. As i mentioned, you thought that you never show how differ you are, in fact, everyone knows. Just because people is smarter then you, you feel that people was trying to put you down. Thw way you think already putting everyone on earth down, seriously. You overestimated people in imu? They ain't stupid alright as i said. Fact that they did well than you is a fact. You don't have to find any reasons to back yourself up just because you did not score.
He says: i appear arrogant in my speech, but the thing is i dare to speak
Mike says: u must apply the maxim of face saving also right... sometimes
He says: i'll put someone down if im being stepped on, even if it means spoiling my reputation. there's a threshold to how much one person can take
Mike says: urs too low
He says; so i really really take alot of mental trrashing
Mike says: man, ur esteem is too high
He says: of cuz la..but i dont show much of it..
- Good that you actually know what you are arrogant in your speech. But look, not everything can bring out in words to the others. Everyone knows that you are having an extremely high self-esteem, it's so wrong that you never realised. You want "face", the others also want "face" alright. Please save people's "face" in front of the others. It’s not necessary to fire at people if you feel offended. All of us who got offended from you never fire you back. That’s why you think that you are far beyond compare from the others.
Conclusion: Man, the reason i'm writing all these is just to let you know your mistakes. I didn't fire you straight ahead last night because i knew that you are not that kind of person who could take criticism. That's why no one dares to point out your mistake. And you always remain as ego as usual.
I'm reminding you as a friend. If i don't bother at all like the others, you wouldn't know how unacceptable you are in fact. I never tell you that most of the people complaint about your attitude at me. A lot of them do not like your way of speech and thinking. But i'd just let you know you shall change your view and perspective at the others. And please learn how to shut and how to respect the others.
I'm not putting you down or offending you. You shall realise your mistake one day. But i'm just bringing the day closer so that the number of people who dislike you will not keep on increasing.
If you feel unhappy about what i've said, feel free to talk with me. I'm one of your closest friends in the imu and i'm always there to help you.
