My three years of HKU life, academically, is a rewarding journey on self-perfection. Having struggled with HKDSE, freshmen often want to indulge themselves in freedom and pay scant attention to studies. Great changes in study and social life in university can be a shock particularly for Year 1 students. Looking back, I believe this is a necessary learning process that new students have to go through. By carefully balancing between academic studies and leisure activities, I continue to pursue my passion and improve my skills on writing. While some may find it dull, the road to improving academic subtleties like citation, referencing and grammar can be beneficial. A good paper does not only reward us with a good GPA, but also serves as a constant reminder that we, as students, need to retain the precious diligence developed during our secondary school life.
