This semester I have a guy classmate. I already noticed him because of being attentive on class coz of that I seeing him sort of being conceited and he also have an attitude of an absentism and always late in class. Actually, it’s the first time that we meet each other as a blockmates. I feel so uneasy and hard to cope up with him because of his attitude and I think I don’t be close to him. I dont talk, look and even smiling at him when we are in the hallway and he is doing the same way too. So that I really don’t him everytime he is entering in the class. And I was like ‘deadma‘ on him. Unfortunately, we have the same subjects that enrolled for this semester.
Days had passed with the same routine everytime I see him. Then one day, our professor discussed a very difficult topic to be able to understand of the class. Im a type of student that if you dont approach and talk to me I will not do the same way and vice versa. And due to lack of idea, I approached him and asked for his help. He didn’t hesitate to help me so I grabbed the opportunity. After that I was so glad because I finished the given activity very early BUT I felt so bad because of my negative first impressions about him before. All the negative impressions for him turned into a positive one. After he taught me and our other blockmates he still didn’t recognize me but Im pretty sure that I looked familiar to him.
The next day, he didn’t even attended our Operating System class. Our professor asked the class if we know the who are the absent and why they’re absent. On my mind, Im planning to asks him if I see him because he is attending our other class but that one is not.
Wednesday evening, we were blockmates. While waiting for our professor, I was like..
‘Hey! Your my blockmate on Operating System class, right? why were you absent?’
And he answered me like this..
‘Yeah. I woke up late in the morning and I have a lazybones to got up so I decided not to attended that time.’
That was our first ever conversation we had. On the next day, I supposed to not
attend our Operating System class while my next class is in the evening. I’ll wait for so long and besides I have a feeling that there is no sense to go so I only stayed at home then go next to my next class which is evening. Then he saw and asked me..
‘Why didn’t you attend our morning class?’
Then I answer him like..
‘I just dont like. Coz I have the feeling he will not teach us. So whats our professor did?’
He answered with indiposed voice ‘As usual, he didn’t do anything. Actually he came too early. Too early for the next subject.‘
I was felt so glad coz I didn’t missed any lessons on him. And that was our second talk. Simply as that.
We were taking our Prelim Examinations, we were seatmates and we both got the highest scores in the class.
So our professor prepared for a unplanned reporting for the highest pointers, and I was like surprised coz Im not ready. And I don’t have any idea, so I can’t stand alone infront of the class then all of a sudden, that guy saved me and he discussed all the given topic very nice and clear. But there are somr certain problems I really dont understand. My head really ache due to that difficult problems. Because he is smart and good in that subject it’s too easy for him and to be able to teach me well he said something unexpected that I never thought that he would say..
“If you dont still get the logic, Im willing to teach you in our laboratory time and be my seatmate.”
He said it while smiling at me. And there is another thing he started to call me on my name. And right after that ‘I started to admire him.’
I wrote this because I really felt so glad that time. I want to shared this kind of feeling to others just to show them some lessons.
• First is, dont judge others by what they are doing but instead try to know them better.
• Second is be approacheable for you to have more colleagues.Dont hesitate to ask other for you to know something more.
• Admirations is not a love or deep feelings. Its just only idolizing one person because of their capabilities or talents. Its very natural.
• Like and Love are far different from one another so dont be confused.
• Study hard. Know your first priority. Education is the key to success. Take a risk and you will gain something better.
Thats all. Hope you understand and appreciate my short story. And you get more lessons on it. Lovelots!
