In life, it's the people we meet that inspire, excite, motivate and captivate us. One such person is my current lecturer, Dr. David. 4 hours of his class and I literally can't take my eyes off him because he's that exuberant and lively, coupled with the fact that he knows his stuff freaking well. he gets excited over research and the processes involved in it and his excitement is contagious and spell-binding. Gosh.. I've never come across a lecturer like him who loves his work with a fervent passion and is elated to pass on knowledge to his students. Basically he loves devouring knowledge.
Meeting a lecturer like him stirs the inquisitive spirit in me that has been laying dormant for far too long, waiting to be awakened. And because of his fervour and high standards that he sets, we are motivated to achieve and to test our limits, whether it can still be pushed further. this blog post does no justice to his excellent work and brilliance in his field and as a person of wisdom.
Haha well that pretty sums up the most exciting encounter in my week. But seriously, it's really the people we meet that inspire us, right? in small or big ways. our circle of friends matter too. If we surround ourselves with friends who only think about korean dramas, gossip, shopping and eating the best food in town, then where is the growth in maturity? Ok la we do need some of these but there ought to be a good balance between light, no-brainer fluff and heavy, thought-provoking questions about life, albeit it's perfectly fine if the scale tips towards the latter.
ah well.. welcome to the daily ponderings that goes on in my introverted mind. gah
