Kakato Scholarship 2018 June‘s Diary

Stepping in June, we’d be able see the flower in the picture, flowers of this tree blooms only at night, I stayed late in study room these days preparing for the final exam.

Life was listless in May and June, but because of them, there was a touch of delight.

Although the exam week was around the end of this month, there were still a lot of essays and reports required to hand in. The toughest one was the physiological report. I had to analyze the data of more than 20 previous experiments performed. For example, I had to analyze the pulse, heart rate and ECG waves of the test subject after performing exercise. I had to calculate the wave interval and amplitude of the ECG waves as well as the pulse amplitude and explain the data collected. This was hard and time-consuming but I think that it allowed me to better prepare for report writing in year 5.

Unbelievably, my freshman year in NTU has come to an end. To me, the days when I was sitting in front of my desk, revising for the HKDSE and praying for being admitted to veterinary medicine were just like yesterday! To be honest, I felt so ambivalent and complicated when it comes to the lapse of time. On one hand, I believe youth is so precious and I really want to grasp every moment of it, especially during the university age. On the other hand, I am so looking forward to the days when I become a real vet back in Hong Kong, helping the animals in need, and get rid of the torturing study (there are just way too many things for a vet student to learn). Nevertheless, I do learn and experience a lot during this year, and gain insight towards veterinary and animal sector, from which I have grown into a better person. Hence, I am full of gratitude that I did not waste this year. Also, I would like to encourage myself in the near future: the coming years may seem hard for you though, remember why you want to come here, and please fight for your dream bravely!
