Applying Special Leave for a semester

Wednesday, 22 April 2020


Applying Special Leave for a semester | Survived postgraduate study for the whole 2 years with sweat and tears but ended up needing to apply for a special leave due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Too many uncertainties and we were all needed to make our own decisions whether to continue or just apply for a break. 

Special leave is actually to be granted for students that have a medical impact. But, they must get a letter from the doctor saying that the individual is not able to continue or to attend class for the entire semester. 

Due to the corona virus outbreak we were given the chance to choose whether to continue with the semester or apply for a special leave. It means that that person will continue with their study the next semester and that the fees can be carried forward without having to pay for extras. 

So, here's and update. Never once in my entire life, I thought that I would need to apply for one. I've been considering this for almost a year due to many reasons but somehow I made it with the help of so many beautiful soul people. I am beyond grateful for that. But it seems that the time is actually now. 

I've always had these weird dreams and feelings about something was going to happen but I've never imagined that this would happen and it is actually happening now. Despite how people see it, there were beautiful memories and also scary ones. But as a summary, my 2019 was actually traumatising.

One decision could lead to a fatal outcome but can also be the best you could've ever made. I've been anxious and couldn't stop myself from overthinking for quite a while. Been asking myself lots and lots of questions and it finally came to a stop.

I'm sure all of  us have been there. So no matter what decision you make, be sure and proud of it. There's always a reason why some things happen. 

Some may think that this Movement Control Order was a bad idea and some may think otherwise. No matter what other peoples thoughts are, I've come to a conclusion that this was actually a blessing. Stay safe and take care guys.

  6. As a healthcare worker, I can say MCO is the best idea to contain and break the chain of virus :) hehe. And I can say, there are lesser non-emergency cases I encounter in Emergency Department and lesser admission as well. Blessing for us somehow, though it is a challenge for us as well as we have lesser cases per day to practice

    1. For some people it's a blessing but for some it may not. but still, there's always a solid reason why things happens right. Pros and cons are always there. It's up to us to decide which and which are for the best.

  7. MCO leaves our world as though we're paused at the same time zone. Everything has stopped, except for the fact that we're alive. InsyaaAllah this is for the best for us, may Allah ease your post graduate study. Congratulations in advance!

    By the way, I love your blog layout! I have followed you for quite a while, has it been like this..?

  11. I feel blessed by reading this. You went through a lot Raydah and I proud that you are doing well until now. I am so happy and proud of you. It's okay to take a break and I think you are already preparing for that in between at least. I just started learning Bahasa Jepun and I managed to remember 25 syllabus of Hiragana so far. I hope you stay safe and if you want to text someone, you can always e-mail me. Salam Al-Mubarak!

  34. tbh, i actually kinda like MCO walaupun banyak benda yg terhad misalnya seperti keluar rumah. mungkin kita dah lama sangat duduk rumah sampaikan rasa macam dah tak kisah kot kalau tak jumpa orang hehe

    n pasal jumpa doktor tu betul. saya selalu ada appointment n kadang2 rasa bersalah masuk kerja lewat. tpi bila MCO ni macam tak perlu risau, appointment jalan je macam biasa n tak perlu rush2 nak gi kerja

    1. I am beginning to adapt to it as well but am afraid as well. I'm afraid that it would feel awkward to go out and see the outside world once again.

      All in all, I'm learning to use all my time in doing beneficial things as well as learning a lot of new things. Being productive is my middle name now. haha
