hi

wow it’s been exactly 11 months since i’ve last posted on here… well this is my scrubby attempt to relieve a year’s worth of memories in a 20 min (max) read so 🙂

I’ve started Year 2 in Uni and I would say I’m coping better this sem and it shows in my grades! Really thankful for what I got and am so happy. Could def have done much better but I am satisfied with my cap now, so here’s to maintaining it and hopefully increasing it in 2017! This year passed by in a literal blur and everything that happened in the first half of 2016 felt like it occurred last year… I think it’s been a relatively smooth sailing year with a few hiccups here and there in April (i think) but all has been great, in hall, in school, in life. Had dark days but also had even brighter ones, loved and lost, experienced a lot, matured a lot. Wouldn’t say I’ve grown as much as I liked to but I think that’s because my growth is relative – compared to last year where I really really developed so much in Y1 (bc of hall), my rate of growth in y2 has been slightly slower I guess. I believe accompanying the growth this year is also this sense of understanding and knowing – that there are certain things in life you cannot control, that sometimes you just have to work around and with what you have, that friendships, people, feelings, LIFE is transient.

Academically-wise, I loved Soci at the start of the year and I still do. I really love what I’m learning in soci and I love studying it. I still don’t really know how to write a GOOD soci essay and neither am I good at it, but I love it for it’s content and the perspectives it teaches. I feel so so enlightened to be able to learn so much, to open my eyes to a different way of seeing, so privileged to receive this sociological education. To be able to look at things with an open-mind, and look past the consumerism, past the materialism, past the globalisation to realise that there is so much more to the world than what the human eye sees. It is SUCH a blessing to be able to receive this education and be able to make sense of the workings of the world around me and I am so grateful really. ok tbvh i loved all the mods i took this year, both in Y1S2 and Y2S1…. my UEs complemented my soci mods and vice versa hahahah THANK U NUS LOL really i luvvvvv ok done with the nerd talk and verbal vomit! Time for pictures to sum up my year.

HSU OUT.

2k14

2014 has come and gone and I don’t really know where to start summarising this year but I’m going to try! I think if there was one word to describe this (well, now last) year it would be A levels????? I died a thousand times in the lead up to this national exam and it was really really hell – essentially the toughest year, both emotionally and mentally, out of my 18 years wtf. But that being said, I’ve also had a lot of memories created in this year that I’d like to keep forever, be it random, spontaneous ones or planned ones. I’ve also met so many new people and grown closer to my existing friends, so for that I’m really glad! Overall, I’d say this year was one hell of a roller coaster (I’m not sure if I say this every year, I think I do LOL but it’s true) and there were so many dark points in my life this year. But I guess if anything, I think I can safely say that I’ve matured a lot throughout this year and grew mentally stronger, albeit just by a little LEL. I feel like I’ve also surpassed myself in many ways (some good, some bad) but mostly in the fact that I survived more than what I expected myself to, or rather, handled things better than what I expected myself to.

I’ve kind of done monthly reviews of the major events in each month throughout this year of so I’ll just link them so whoever can read. But nevertheless, here are some of my fav pictures to sum up 2k14:

So yup, looking back, I had a lot of fun this year actually! excluding a levels and everything, if you add up the major events and the small moments, I’d say I had a great year. Made new friends, created new memories, emerged a new person 🙂 Without everyone by my side, I honestly wouldn’t have made it through and the year wouldn’t have turned out as it did, so thank you all so so much. Here’s to the new year!!!

A year worth of mmrs

So there’s about 4-5 weeks left of 2013 and I must say, I’m pretty much darn freaked out by how time has passed so quickly this year. I don’t know if I’m going to post this eventually, but I am writing it bc I need a platform to reflect. This whole year has been insane – too much emotions, a lot of self-realisation and discovery, new friendships, stronger friendships, new experiences and so much more. It overwhelms me some times. So many things I would like to say but I don’t have the words to express them and also some times, words alone are not enough. (I wish I could write better. I really do.) So anyway, I’m just going to post a picture of my favourite/most significant memory/memories from each month this year and from these 12 (or more) pictures, you’ll probably be able to see what has shaped me into me and who are those who mean the most to me 🙂

So there it is! 2013 summarised. All in all, it’s been a pretty good. Have never regretted choosing to come to SA, may (or may not) have regretted my subject combi several times, have never regretted joining SA choir – made so many good friends there :’), grew closer to my ct friends even tho we were all in different schools (in fact, that could have been what brought us closer.), grew as a person and so much more. Academically wise this year hasn’t been very good but thank God I made it albeit barely.
A lot of memories made this year, some I’d like to keep and treasure, some I’d rather not remember. So here’s to 2013 – a milestone in my life.

2012

Its the last day of 2012 and the year is coming to an end. This year has definitely been amazing, with everything that has happened, the good and the bad, the ups and downs. I would list the events that have made my year but I can’t remember all of them (sadly). So I will, at least, list those that I can remember but it doesn’t mean that those unlisted are any less significant than the rest. 🙂
1. I dropped physics. Sorry I had to mention this bc it’s prolly the best decision ever (I can’t stress this enough).
2. ASPIRE camp 2012! Got closer to 4C1 and the clique

3. Wicked!!!!!! I loved it 😀

20121231-224629.jpg
(P.S/ I am too lazy to look for photos to upload anymore lol sorry so the rest of this list will not have photos)
4. Speech day
5. Mad prep for Os
6. Post Os
7. Taiwan
Ad Icr anymore. I am so thankful for everything this year and I dare say that I have matured :p grown closer to my girls, the fam, and other friends. I am honestly not ready for 2013 but scratch that for now.
So here’s to new beginnings and have a great great great year ahead y’all!! X

20121231-225423.jpg
P.S/ 2013 will start off great if my O lvl results do not disappoint :p
