Since young, I have buried my head in the books. I loved reading. Yes! Loved. I used to spend hours in the library to read up the books I love or I could finish four "Harry Potter" books during a car journey. However, this stopped when I started my law degree. Cases, law journals, textbooks, statutes and lecture notes had seemed to be my only reading materials. I was too focused on my study but it also at the same time killed my reading spirit. I know those stuff would get my great marks but something was lacking - Joy.
Things started to change when I got to Cambridge. The surrounding made me to revise my intention of reading. Soon enough I realized that I was so busy studying and I forgot about learning. What's the difference? Yea, I didn't know the difference until I attended the orientation in Cambridge. The people here are knowledgeable, not only in the field they specialize in but also in other aspects of life. So, learning is the genuine intention of wanting to know and studying is nothing more than a routine of imparting yourself with information. At least that's what I have discovered.
I started "Lexinder.L" officially last year while I was working in a law firm. I would say that was the saddest moment in my life. I never hate my life so much. Waking up in the morning in exhaustion and holding the urge of smashing the desktop made me realize that these were not healthy. I had no idea on what I was doing apart from working day by day. I started to wonder whether I still had some residual love for law or simply this is not the path for me. At that moment, I missed Cambridge dearly. I didn't understand why the love for law that I had built in Cambridge couldn't be carried on here. So, to reminisce the great time in UK, I built "Lexinder.L".
