  • 1. My academic life at Asian Institute of Technology.. Another Chapter of Life.. Sort Borort borort@gmail.com May 2009
  • 2. T ime doesn’t stop moving, and it keeps running even faster… The two- year period in AIT has just gone like a dream and left behind many wonderful experiences and memories I have ever had in my life.. Well, I could say I am so fortunate to get a chance to come to study at AIT and you know, this is one of my dreams that I used to wish for. It was not very easy for me to get this opportunity, but because of my qualification, my belief in “never give up”, and my effort, finally I could find the way to come.
  • 3. The first moment when I was in AIT, I felt I was not alone with the helping hands of the senior students. They helped from assisting me to register for accommodation to finding me the dormitory room and showing me the place I could find food to eat. They also provided me many useful advices. What impressed me the most about AIT at first were the natural beauty and the peacefulness of its green campus. Such kind of things made me feel like being at home…
  • 4. Well, life in AIT began with lots of enjoyments and funs. I could remember a list of schedule for the first few weeks.. many welcome parties, trips, and so on.. We could also still find enough time to sleep nicely.. :). After one or two months later, tough life immediately started. It was because we had to deal with many workloads.. such as assignments, course projects, exam preparation, etc.. and you know, because of this some students called AIT as “Assignment Institute of Technology..”. However, those were what we came here for.. and we had to be ready to master them..
  • 5. It was a bit hectic initially. However, we still could cope up with such difficulties in the end. I agree with Friedrich Nietzsche who quoted that: “Something which does not kill us makes us stronger.” Anyway, in between such hard time there were also many kinds of activities and programs in AIT that could help us to release our tension from stress.. such as parties and dancing, sports, movie on campus, yoga and meditation program, etc.. Of course, everyone had to work hard to get good grade.. and that was very challenging in AIT. I remember many nights that we had to stay up late or even didn’t sleep at the lab trying to complete works before the deadline.. as well as we had to attend the early morning class.. everybody still closed their eyes.. “oh.. what a terrible life..”.
  • 6. Erm.. perhaps I wasn’t so smart enough so I had to work a bit harder.. hehe :). Anyway, I guess you could learn to manage your time properly and balance yourself between studying and relaxing.. better than I did. Related to this, health is very very important.. if it goes down then you won’t be able to do anything.. Thus, please care about your health.. by doing physical exercises, eating healthy food, and having In AIT, it is all about time adequate time of sleeping.. management.. I found time is running really fast. If you could well manage your time then you would partially free yourself from many workloads.. Frankly, I had some difficulties in this matter so what I had to do was I spent most of the times on my study rather than on socializing myself.. Well, I knew that was not a really good way of doing so but I didn’t have many better options at that time and you know, some friends often told me not to work too hard..
  • 7. However I think everybody has their own limitations.. and we cannot just do everything beyond our ability.. but I believe that we DO HAVE ability to learn new things and here in AIT, we have a lot of chances. In addition, I am always careful about my works and other things.. Though it may take me some times but I need to make sure that any works should properly and professionally been done. We might have different ways of being success.. and a component of my own success in AIT is primarily lying on my patience. I love challenging with difficulties.. if something comes into my interest, no matter how hard it might be, I often keep trying to overcome it… “it doesn’t matter just to try our best on what we want to do..”
  • 8. Talking about how to study… well, carefully listening and good note taking are the keys in class.. Reading a lot is also what you have to do. Do you know whom I first go to every time I have questions? – “Google..” It contains knowledge of the world.. However I wouldn’t say that you don’t have to consult with your professor or advisor.. you have to.. since they will be very helpful to guide you with all your academic problems.. Keep practicing.. the more you practice the more you become expert in your skill.. “Don’t wait..” my professor often said.. never wait until the last minute since it will cause you a lot of painful.. Prioritizing your works.. consider and do the most crucial work first..
  • 9. Friends can help you to solve some kinds of problems you may have or at least they can be good consultants who can encourage you and make you happy.. You know, at AIT there were smiles and tears that we would share with our friends.. Friendship is among the most important things in AIT. I guess you cannot be alone all the times.. The day would not be bright without talking to anyone.. and that is one of the roots of stress. I could remember many times I used to have lunch or dinner alone and I think you probably can understand about such lonesome feeling..
  • 10. Those are what obviously can make everyone of us feels warm and make our life worth living here.. Apart from hard times of our course and research works, we could also find some good times to be together... cooking for each other, going out for dinner or shopping, enjoying evening badminton match, chatting over anything.. from study topic to personal issues..
  • 11. ..the professional skills, the ways we work and live together in multicultural environment, the understanding of people, the feeling of being helpful in the community, getting to know many friends from all around the world, the opportunity to expose ourselves in diversity of culture, understanding the value of friendship, etc.. those are the greatest things that will push us to go forward.. Eventually, everything has to reach its Besides that, I also learnt many things ending, and as time goes by we would from my friends and juniors.. they definitely achieve something that we inspired and changed me a lot.. Many had put a strong effort on... thanks to them.. so far I can see some improvements of my own weaknesses.. At the moment I am holding a master degree from AIT.. but more importantly, what I obtain from here are far more than just that piece of paper..
  • 12. ..and my final word that I would suggest is you should make the most of your time in AIT.. since you may never find any places that can teach you many lessons - from academic skills to everyday life - and build yourself to become a real professional like this place… also please always try your best and value all your hard works and efforts that you have done so far since it will pay you back with pride and happiness.. Now it is the time to leave AIT, it is the time to be apart from all beloved friends I am sure you will enjoy your life in AIT whom we used to spend our times as much as I did.. and wish you be with.. Even though we really hesitate to successful in your academic life.. :) do so, but we need to move to another step of our life to catch our next -- end -- dream... What I could say is “I’ll miss AIT a lot... I can’t forget all memories of AIT..” ----- Last but not least, there are still many About AIT: wonderful things about AIT that I http://www.ait.ac.th couldn’t describe all in here..
