2008 ASEAN PRE-UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS
We refer to your application for the above scholarship and regret to inform you that you have not been successful.
It hit me in the head. My mood instantly shattered, and I could hear in the distance the sound of a door slamming tight shut. The alternative path of my future has suddenly disappeared. I guess I'll be educated locally. I was sort of expecting it, but there was the glimmer of hope inside me when I saw the letter which was addressed to me. At least I did grab hold of the opportunity but I guess I'm not good enough. I can understand why: I did everything last minute, and too undeserving of the scholarship (and I broke a rule).
Wow, this is a major bummer! =( It's like a slap in the face.
From another point of view, this is a wake up call. I guess this is a lesson learned. Hopefully I will learn from it. I thank you guys for the support you gave to me and I am sorry for breaking this bad news to you. =(
On the other hand, wish me luck for the running race later. I am doubting my own abilities; it has been so long since I last exercised consistently.
