My camera roll: April 2016

This month was really dull in the ‘leisure & entertainment’ category, but breaking records in the ‘work & study’ department.

  • Wearing my brand new purchase from Asos
  • Having Ichiban Boshi in celebration of Jia’s birthday. Could eat Japanese food all day.
  • Sitting by the Marina Bay and looking out at Singapore’s beautiful CBD at night
  • Toilet selfies. Even the toilets in MBS look fancy-pants.
  • Wearing shorts is a rare luxury when you have to dress work-appropriate all week!
  • Yb bought us lunch while we were studying at his house
  • The view out of the window at the office stairway

Everyone said I was nuts for taking on a part-time internship amidst a full semester. But I say I couldn’t have made a better decision! My internship at Marketing Magazine was challenging and fulfilling at the same time, and it gave me a really enriching experience into the world of editorial and news. Nevertheless I’m glad I got the internship out of the way just in time to tackle exams.

April also saw me go through my last week of lessons in NUS, as I sum up my last university semester with only two more exams to go. I’ve met such lovely people from my major this semester, and hell it makes me wonder where they have been during my whole university life! They’re all such nice people that I wish I wasn’t graduating so soon. But we will keep in touch 🙂

I guess it’s a bittersweet farewell to university. I don’t think I have a really deep attachment to NUS, but the memories are still precious nevertheless. The people I’ve met, the lessons I’ve learnt and all the little ups and downs I experienced, they will go a long way with me as I step out into the real world. It frightens me as much as it excites me, but we shall see what post-graduation does for me!

The month of May will be all reserved to myself, to take a break after studying. I’m also hoping to book a flight somewhere and enjoy a getaway, so we’ll see how that pans out too!

With love,
