Time for another update!
Spent my 1st week (after my last paper) trying to finish philo assignment. The prof officially assigned the final term paper to us around the last 2 weeks of school, and said that we can hand it in as long as we want until the semester ends. So happily I dragged it until my exam was over because I had no time to write it while revising for other modules. Anyway I was already feeling burnt having to write yet another academic based paper so I stopped at 6 pages (range was 6 to 8 pages) and submitted on the last day of the semester.
Cant believe that I managed to finish the module, given how I was so blur in class and have never taken any philo module beforehand (There is this girl from science faculty who took 2-3 philo modules before this one and she knows what exactly is going on).
Onto the 2nd week… went back to SPCA on Monday after being missing for months. As usual nothing changed, only new faces up for adoption, like this skinny pig called Bruno. Old faces still there as well like Lucius and Hitler Cat.
Then went for lyrical jazz. My friend from ballet has been attending classes there so she recommended to try classes there. Choreography was quite okay to follow, even though I have relatively little jazz experience.
Tuesday… Watched LOTR the Two Towers and sang ktv at MK’s house with the usual. And as usual we were laughing at each other’s characters (if you read my previous post months back you will know what we were joking about). Anyway look at that wide-eyed face. Enough to give anyone nightmares.
Prior to the movie I was reading the book for 3 days in large numbers of chapters so imagine the amount of dosage of LOTR in my brain holy crap. Anyway I have since taken a break from anything related to LOTR if not I can end up relating everything to LOTR. There is this dog in SPCA called Bree and I was like “Isnt this the place in Middle Earth……”
Wednesday… went for SPCA animal ambassador training cos I thought the information will come in useful during sales events and attending to the public while on shelter duty. Imagine remembering so much content within an hour! (Photo stolen from the education manager)
Luckily the education team gave everyone an information pack each consisting of one brochure each from the different kinds of brochures shown above so that we can slowly devour the information at home. Anyway I found out that there is a malay version in one of my brochures. Ehehehehe. I dont blame them because the brochures are packed in a hurry, and luckily I can read a bit of malay before memory completely fails me.
Thursday… Lunch and catch up with J, then went to walk around JEM looking at girls stuff. J was giving ‘advice’ how to find a boyfriend like using fragrant shampoo and then swishing your hair in front of the guy. Nicely edited photo stolen from J.
Friday… went SPCA again and went for ballet. Here is Lucius hiding under the cushion because it started pouring heavily and he freaked out.
Saturday… NUS open house! Helped out for Office of Programmes under multidisciplinary minors (Dream on, history department will never find me for help) to introduce the programme to the year 0s and answer their questions. Oh and did I mention that we get paid? Anyway everyone just wanted to get rid of the freebies apart from using them to attract the year 0s. Except for the popular majors because hundreds will still flock to their booth even though there are no freebies.
The place was really noisy, talked until my voice died. South Asian studies played bollywood music somemore. When it comes to multidisciplinary minors, most of the year 0s I spoke to were more particular about the technical bits like how to count the modular credits and the requirements instead of asking a specific multi-discip minor. Well I did get a few asking about china studies though. Quite a lot of parents came as well, and I saw my ballet classmate (from TBCC) with her parents. Saw one of my jc classmates as well but he didnt drop by at our booth.
The whole event reminded me of the times before I started uni, feeling confused and lost whatsoever like the year 0s. And then poof I am going into my 3rd year this coming Aug (still dont know if I want to do honours or not). All I can advice is one step at a time.
Oh that’s a cookie. Quite nice but I was put off by the icing because of the coloring and the sweetness.
Sunday… ballet ❤ I cant believe I am attending up to 5 dance classes a week until the semester starts again. Seriously dance is now part of my blood holy crap.
Oh yes I am actually taking on a content curator position for a mobile app related to Singapore history, just in case anyone is having the idea that I am slacking my ass off. It is more free and easy, basically just go (re)-visiting everyday streets in Singapore and discover fading/quirky landmarks and do research on them. Will update here what I wrote as soon as I can.
Love life wise… still a single old lady with no luck. Most of the places I hang out are female dominated environments. Anyway I am going to clear one of my minor modules this summer, with a field trip to china. I predict there will be 10 people in class, and only 1 guy. Anyone else wants to place their bets?
Okay going to check out a bookstore now. Ciao.
