I found the right topic for my mandarin essay- the foundations of confucianism in Singapore’s political government. This also impacts our conduct of businesses (the typical Asia family businesses) and also education! Now I just have to slowly translate my thoughts. I stand at 250 words (1/10th done)
I took a look at my course outline (only 1 module) for the summer and it is killer. The readings for the 2nd day includes 5 chapters and a case study. Every lesson has a case study. But it covers alot of ground especially looking at policies in less talked about countries in our Singapore system – Brazil, Mexico and Europe. I guess there is not much finals but more of a paper to submit. Sounds so exciting and tiring. I am so glad I am only doing 1 module! After my friend looked at her course outline she was thinking of just doing 1. Haha. Looks like I can slice my travel expenses into half because I shall be the typical singaporean kid and mug my weekends away (and hopefully be the smart asian kid?… NAHHHH) But seriously, you would want to study hard after paying 4 digits for 1 module and not wanting to look dumb in front of the prof!
Japanese food won’t turn you into pikachu (but I think pikachu emits lightning bolts, not so much radioactivity)! Finally had jap food with my dear friend whose exchange got cancelled, been pining for japanese food for too long. I was trying to find a pair of nice crocs and she walked in and bought a pair of crocs wedges (super ex) and another pair for her daddy (so sweet!) The designs I wanted did not have my size or the colours I wanted I think their shoes are pretty hardy and they are so comfortable (despite toilet looking) but these days fashion can be like trash so I am just blending in!
It makes sense. People change all the time. And it was just like what M was talking to me about previously. Its hard to reconcile the differences between then and now especially in a person you have known for too long. I think some change is good especially when it makes your friend a happier person. But what happens if you are just blotted out of the whole picture? That is something I haven’t really dealt with. Perhaps on a smaller scale back in secondary school and I disagreed with how I managed it (typical emotional singaporean teenage girl). I guess sometimes its about taking a step back and withdrawing a bit. I won’t deny. I get clingy to a person who shares the same interests, likes, dislikes because of an emotional attachment that forms. But thats not the way I should operate on and I am changing it. Maybe this is the way things end, an ending spell a new beginning or it could be a good restart, which I hope for earnestly.
Well, there is truth in the saying that “it can’t get any worse than this”. I think my group did well for the company law project. I didn’t get to present the star question but it was still heavily a group effort. We only made a minor error each in both questions but our scope was large and we threw our net wide enough. Our presentation was 40 mins the grp after us… 20mins. No comments on that but they were really clear and concise and I can’t blame them because their question was much less complicated. Also, I thank God I did fairly well for CAT. Scoring above average I geniunely thought I was going to fail, but really, God led me through.
Some words are better left unsaid
Some things better left undone
Some wounds better left un-touched
I miss the times we had
The things we did
The fun we had
Perhaps its also an appreciation thing. Not seeing you wear the stuff I bought while you happily wear what other people have gotten you right away. I just feel like whatever I do pales in comparison. But everyone is entitled to their own freewill (as I always say, to each his own). Its like me going to the nail bar and deciding wine red isn’t my “it” colour.
I am a sensitive and insecure bug to the humankind. And until I change, isolation. These days, I enjoy shopping on my own. It makes sense. Wait for no one, leave no one behind because there is no one. Life at its best. I change my mind, it can’t get any better…

Get out. The meanie is back.
