Under Pressure...

Assalamu'alaikum...

Under Pressure....
It's a song title...Originally sang by David Bowie...Then, it's covered by My Chemical Romance and The Used...

But hey, I'm not going to talk about that...

This is my thesis statement (^_^)

While some may disagree, I firmly believe that human perform better under pressure...

Take term paper, for instance. The closer to the deadline, the more focused you become...

As for me, when I was given the E.A.P (English for Academic Purpose) assignment, it takes me forever to even start thinking of a topic for the research paper...
I ended up following Madam Ruhil's suggestion: Elective Caesarean...

Well, I'm not a big fan of the topic...
But I have my own view regarding the topic, which is against Elective Caesarean...
So, why not?

Days after days, weeks after weeks....
Finally I started searching for the info using IIUM database...
Mainly in LexisNexis Academic database...

Last 2 weeks, I was told that I have to submit the first draft on 3rd of March, which is last Wednesday...But then, Madam Hayati posponed it to 13th March, which is today...
I worked most of my brain cells out in order to try to finish it on time...
I sacrificed my sleeping time....Game time...My futsal time (liar!)...
Anyway, today, from morning until Friday prayer, I just sat in front of my laptop...EAP-ing...on an on again....

After Friday prayer, still the same routine...until.....

Jaz: Sam, Madam Yati kata, siapa yang dah present, tak payah datang kelas petang ni...

Me: Then, draft macam mane?

Jaz: Tak payah hantar...Madam gune marks presentation hari tu je...Kalau kita buat corrections yang madam suruh mase presentation tu, dapatlah marks 1st draft...

Me: oh...ok...(disappointed+relieved)

and finally......I end up writing this entry...
The point is, human work best under pressure..
So, pressurised yourself!
