Monash - Four Years After Graduation

Dear Emily,

I have gone back to our old university after 4 years I graduate from there. It is strange that I have never thought about going there although I pass by there from time to time. I miss the great times we and the others had together during our university days, but now those great times seemed so far from us.

Our labs at the lower ground still look the same, only grown to lack of space and kinda filty. Mr. Nathan is still there working. He seemed tired working there. It is not just him looking exhausted, Dr. Kan too seemed very tiring. I guess the university has overworked them in one way or another.

I was at the cafeteria looking at the current students. Ah... university life are such ideal kind of life, free from worries such as paying car installments, family problems, work stress. I see these students, in a way looking different from us. Arming with the newest handphone in hand, dress up with clothes I never dream a student would wear it, they chit-chat like there was no tomorrow.

There are some changes around the campus too. All our lecturers no longer sit at the 2nd floor. They were all moved to the buildings where the old hostels are. I feel sorry for them in a way, as there were too many stairs to climb, and the former apartment units look very worn. I am guessing that Dr. Ton must be having a hard time to get to her room that is at the 3rd floor, from the labs that are at the lower ground floor!

What else what else. Guess what's new at the cafeteria? There's a San Francisco cafe there!!! And there is also Auntie Anne's pretzel stand there too. Other than that, me think our uni is just getting filled with too many advertisments everywhere!!! For example, there was this big Nokia advert at the entrance going into the cafeteria. And then, there are advertisment to download ringtones wallpaper behind the toilet doors!

If you ask my opinion, me definately think that this place offer almost everything: great food, cool environment, 1st class facilities. One thing for sure it is not best at, is the education.
