Last two days... in Semantics class...
Dr. Subra said, "Students make better teachers, not the other way around."
In the end of his lectures, he concluded that it is very important for the students to ask as many questions as possible to their teachers . This is because their questions somehow make the teachers think and become more productive.
"If the students don't ask questions to the teachers, the teachers will become stupid. That's why I believe that students make better teachers. It's not the teachers who make better students." He further said.
Hmm... this makes me ponder. Honestly, there are thounsand things going around inside my mind since I made my first step into IIUM. I believe that my level of curiosity about so many things is quite higher than everyone else. There are many things I would like to question about but it's just that I'm not brave enough to ask them to my lecturers. I'm not that brave to say them out loud in the classroom. I haven't the courage to participate in any class dicussions. Because this is what I am. I know that I need to change this attitude but I just can't due to two reasons; first, I think I just can't change this trait and second, perhaps I'm still not ready to become someone else whom I'm not used to be. I just want to be just me, myself.
But I hope any sorts of changes that I'm gonna make withink myself will bring me some positive improvements rather than negatives. May Allah grant this wish.
*Ready for Semantics class.
