I didnt write this earlier because I hadnt seen her in person to congratulate her. Now that I am home and all that is out of the way, I can do it.
Yana got through her SPM with 2A's for Maths and Science and B+ for the rest of the subject. I am happy and proud of her. We are not the type of parents that demand straight A's. As we see it, as long as they had given it their best, we will be there for them.
Yana has never been the studying type and sometimes I am amazed that she can get through her exams. She hates the idea of being cooped up and have to study things that she will not use at all in future (which is quite true) and simply do what is necessary to just make it. Barely sometimes.
Lots of small talks, and discussions and finally we did see her making a better effort at studying for her SPM. I am not going to dwell on "without proper studying she passed all her papers, if only she had studied more" because she is what she is.
She has decided to pursue Mass Comm/PR and photography on the side. And it suits her. You see, she may slack in the studying department, but she excels in the people department. She is bubbly, energetic and has a pleasant personality , she easily makes friends and has deep empathy. I know she will do well in life because of these traits. And she is street smart too. She reminds me of me. A lot of me. I guess that's why we logged heads sometimes ha ha.
So Yana all the best, and know that we are here for you, for something, for nothing, for everything. Congratulations and you are now venturing into a totally new adventure. Good luck sayang ! We all love you :)
