Well, today I was gonna update the blog with a series of i-love-you posts to cherish and remember the ones I love the most when I got a call from Maldivian National University, my uni telling me that I won the Shaheed Labeeb award.
Now, even before I was given admission to FMC, I had read about the place and this award and I decided to work for it. The first semester was easy enough and I was able to get a perfect 4 point GPA and the award goes to the student who scored the highest in all bachelor programs in FMC (which meant both us, and the IT people). I have been waiting so long for this, and I was almost led to believe that they were cancelling the award (I said that to myself. I sometimes turn all pessimistic when things take too long to happen).
Anyhow, it was great news. It means I’m getting my tuition fee free from now on and a pocket money of some sort each month. Hopefully, in a few month’s I’ll be able to provide for my own expenses and not be a burden on my parents. I know they would still want to pay for my bills and stuff cos they are the best people in the world, and to them, I’m still their little princess. But I have promised myself that I was not gonna be a burden on them after I turn 18.
Thank you god for blessing me with the knowledge and ability to work for this goal. Thanks to my mom and dad for always supporting in my goals and believing in me. Thanks to my family and relatives for reminding me of how good I was, and for keeping the hope alive. Thanks to my classmates for always believing in me, and telling me from time to time that I was gonna win it. Thanks to FMC people and teachers for asking me to participate in it, and giving me motivation and well wishes. Thanks to those friends who knew about this, and asked me and gave me advice. I am so grateful to all of you. I couldn't have done it without you.
Lastly thanks to all blog readers for keeping up with me, and for always being so supportive great readers. It feels so great to know that there are so many people who reads about what I write here and take time to comment or even just read. Thank you.
BTW, the ceremony is on 21st and they are gonna air it live on VTV and a recording on MNBC One on22nd. Just saying. =P
