Why you should use nicknames...

I never felt the need to be anonymous. While many cite different reasons why you should not let your identity be known, this particular scenario takes it to a new level and meaning.

*overheard - a conversation between MMU students.

A : Eh, you know ah, nowadays cannot simply give excuses in class already.
B : Yalor. That day my friends kena, he didn`t pass up assignment, then lecturer scold say play DOTA too much.
A : How the lecturer know???
B : That fellow stupid la, go reveal his identity during the last match....
A : Oh ya, I heard that too... the lecturer was playing in the same server!!!
A & B : *laugh their ass out.....

I sat down there, not doubting their words. In fact, I`ve seen lecturers playing those game while in office during my consultation hours. :P

In a way, I felt that the generation gap`s narrowing. I use to feel awkward when I see student having their lecturer`s msn. I, myself have been taken a back when my lecturer asked me too add her in msn if I had to ask last minute questions. (usually the night before the exams).

Though, the idea of playing game with your lecturer is still quite strange to me. Haha.. imagine halfway through you feel the need to ask a questions....

*half way through a dota game.

Student says: (sends a private message).... hey... I kinda forget what Newton`s second law is all about...mind explaining?

Lecturer says : Hmm.. the second law states...

keen1987 is beyond godlike....

Lecturer says : wait a while... keen is in the middle lane.. all gang bang him first..
Student says: ..........................

I dono, that`s just odd. Maybe what`s worst, is that you`re the one being pawned by him. It`s one thing being call dumb and stupid academically, but being called noob by your lecturer... lol

This space is my simple escape from the harsh reality. Expect lots of random rants and whining apart from the daily reporting of things going I`m going through.

Take nothing seriously, leave comments, or just a simple hi. The world is getting smaller by the day, why not know each other now. Have fun ya all.
