Hello world, I’m making an effort to blog more.
It’s been 8 weeks into school and I really have to thank God for seeing me through. I’m surviving well, at least for now. Even though it is an accelerated program, it is definitely not as easy as what others think. More rush, more assignments. They are not simple assignments. I crack my head every single week to think of ideas for my script. Not just simple ideas, ideas with a twist at the end to make my script good and to fulfill whatever criteria stated. I’m still hoping to maintain my straight As for the scripts.
It’s mid-term and I’m done with 4 papers. 1 more to go. Praying hard that I wouldn’t fail the Rights and Contracts paper. (Almost) Nothing that my lecturer taught came out. It was more or less arguable and there’s no right or wrong answer. It’s a culture-shocking kind of paper to me. And it doesn’t help when he sends information near midnight the day before exam. Oh well, I’ll take it as it’s the American culture =/
Time has really been passing fast, too fast. Especially when I have a 4-day week, my weekend is long, but I spend most of my time on the assignments. I wouldn’t say that I don’t really have a life because it’s compensated by good food. =P Look at all my instagram photos, they’re ALL FOOOOOOD. They brighten up my gloomy day!
I’ve been taking up jobs here and there when I have time to survive better. If not the online shoppings (I do them in between school work) and the foods.. I will be uber broke by now.
There have been quite a few things that’s keeping in my head for so many weeks. Still waiting for answer and I really hope to be able to tweet some good news soon. Good things are worth the wait and I will continue to wait. Trusting in the Lord and He knows my heart’s desire. Trying my very best not to worry about it. :)
Right after I was done with my poly education.. I went for job interview as a baker and started work the following week. Did part time in March and August, and full-time from April-July. I’m not sure if I’m actually well rested.. but I sure know that I can’t do nothing during my holidays. I can’t imagine myself at home watching shows everyday or sleeping in till late and doing whatever I feel like on that day. I’ll feel like I’m wasting my life away. That explains why all these years have been either work or study ever since I was 16.
School’s starting in 3 days and I was reflecting on my past 5 months. I would say it was really wonderful. I finally left NTUC and took up another job as a baker. I had awesome working experience and also not so awesome ones but I really am still thankful for what I had. I remember it started out tough, as it was my first time in F&B line and working in the kitchen isn’t something I’m familiar with. I dont even step into my own kitchen for long and I had to deal with working in for 8hrs a day.
I had my down times when I didn’t feel like going to work as waking up early everyday was really tiring for me.. but thinking back, I had really wonderful colleagues who kept me motivated to go to work. Started out in USQ and Noreen was the one who trained up on my speed. She’s one of the fastest worker and it still amazes me on the way she works. Fast and clean. That’s two words to describe her. Then I got emotionally attached to her on my last two weeks before I left for MW.
Things weren’t as bad as I thought it would be at MW. I worked with Ivy for the entire 3 months. I was super duper blessed. Who would wake up early to travel/make breakfast for you every single day? I still miss her calling me ‘baobei’ (precious) everytime she calls out to me. The way she texts me telling me how much she loves my presence touches me deep down. And I’m glad I’m always there for her. Not sure about the future but I know I’ll try.
In between, I got to know who Junwei was after working there for a month or so. I’ve been wondering who this mysterious person was. Heard things like ‘he’s very fierce’, ‘he’ll stand beside you to look at how you bake’ and what not made me curious about him. And who knows.. I’m actually so close to him now. He’s one of the most unique and frank person I ever know. And I admire how he isn’t afraid that people would judge/dislike him because of the way he is. His personality’s so strong that he could change me. The way he works.. one word. Imba. He has his own standard and he would want people to continue improving. That’s the way life should be, no?
And of course.. the directors and counter girls. Thankful for each and everyone. They’re simply lovely. Glad that I’m still doing part-time once a week while schooling so I can still see them. :)
Another thing that happened was the lost of my dear paternal granny in early May.. I miss her. But I’m glad that she’s reuniting with my grandpa in heaven. Now that I’ve lost my paternal grandparents, I’m treasuring my maternal ones more.. and of course the other elderly-s I see outside. Because no matter how irritating or what not, they are still people we should respect and take care of. :)
Now that I’m officially 20 and entering my next phase of life.. I have new set of goals to achieve. And I believe that God will see me through it.
