My greatest satisfaction this year is that I stepped out of my comfort zone and is now taking courses on the unfamiliar subjects. In my first year , the majority of the courses I studied were the ones in which I had previous backgrounds. However, this year I took the courage to enroll in Linguistics and Philosophy courses in order to explore my interest outside my concentration. The process was a bit challenging as I did not have any previous knowledge on those subjects and I needed to work extra hard to keep up with the professors’ pace. Writing essay is also very torturous for me because I have to spend lots of time to get my inspiration. However, through taking these “challenging” courses, I broadened my study scope. Entering an entirely fresh domain feels great. Starting from this year, I will take advantages of HKU’s course offering system and absorb as much knowledge as I can during my university life.
