..sonnet 116..

let me not to the marriage of true minds
admit impediments. love is not love
which alters when it alteration finds,
or bends with the remover to remove:

o no! it is an ever-fixed mark
that looks on tempests and is never shaken;
it is the star to every wandering bark,
whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

love's not time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks,
within his bending sickle's compass come:
love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
but bear it out even to the edge of doom.

if this be error and upon me be proved,
i never writ, nor no man ever loved.

cambridge advance learners dictionary describes "responsibility" as "something that it is your job or duty to deal with".

out of three classes i had today, two were dealing with this matter.
which part of "be responsible" can't certain people understand..?
in eap class today, a classmate failed to submit the outline, and the person has been absent for god knows how many classes, and still can act like there is nothing happen. no initiative to see the lecturer, explain their disappearance from class, give the mc whatsoever.. nothing at all!! luckily, this person came to class today, the others are untraceable!!
i know this because the lecturer keep asking us about these people.
i always wonder how are these kind of people live their life..? without the sense of responsibility. ok, maybe they are responsible in other things, but what makes their study excluded from the list..? as a student, isn't taking care of your study a major part of you..? if you do not want to take the course, please drop it for others who really wanna graduate to take it. let elle take it, she deserves to be in your place! and because of this group of people, the lecturer was mad at the rest of the class.

same thing happened in my amlit class, only this time, it was about presentation, some groups came unprepared.
though the lecturer did not seem to be upset, who knows what goes on her mind.. one person's fault may jeopardize everything.
how do student take responsibility actually..?
do they take it seriously..? or lightly..?
do they know that all of these responsibilities are to prepare them for the real world..?
how many of them really completing the given task by heart..?
what does it like to be an irresponsible person actually..?
there is a saying that reads "don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out of it alive", but do we need to take everything lightly..?
must we neglect our responsibilities..? so we can be less serious about many things, thus, get out of our life, alive..?
what will we bring out of our life then if we never take responsibility..? will we have anything to be proud of..? hmmm...

in every role we play, there is a responsibility attached to it, take care of it for we will be questioned about it later. and remember, if you can't handle the workload, do not take it in the first place, do not bite of more than you can chew.

god bless!!
