I'm a sandwich


Graduation.

A one in a lifetime experience.

Especially if you're too comfortable with your work life and you think your brain is too rusty to further your study or get a second degree.

So yes, it is a one in a lifetime experience.

People, I will soon graduate.

But it sucks when your course is identified as a particular kind of food.

See, the exact name of my course is Bachelor of Education in Teaching English as a Second Language (Twinning programme).

Twinning programme means I get to study in a teacher's training institute AND university.

We were supposed to do our two-year foundation course in a teacher's training institute, and spend the next four years doing our degree in university.

But some genius up there decided to make us:
- do our foundation and first year degree in the institute (Johor Bahru)
- do our sophomore and junior year in university (Selangor)
- and go back to the institute AGAIN for our final year. (Johor Bahru)

How utterly convenient.

Hence for graduation we are listed as...

Yes, a fucking SANDWICH.  And yet there's the keyword 'Program Berkembar' at the last page of the letter.  But no, they thought it would be funny to list us a a fucking mayo and egg sandwich.  And they must've forgotten to edit the letter before posting it out on the internetz.

So on the day of graduation, I'll probably look like this:


Nevertheless, be it ham or tuna, I AM SUPER PSYCHED!
