I had always been someone who needs to write, and the fact that i stopped writing last year got to me a little. Writing online can create so many chain effects, and i have learned the lessons of responsible blogging, if there is such a word.
I have been looking around for a good blog host to blog and write on. I was deciding on blogger the other day, but the html codes have gotten way too complicated for a novice like myself. I created fc2 months ago, and only after i saw Namiko darling tweeting that she had blogged and with this blog host did i remembered this forgotten account.
It feels good to be able to write and pen down my thoughts at a blogging host which offers simple and hassle-free tools. I am still figuring out the sidebar, so hopefully this blog would look better after a while! :D
P.S// Decided against fc2 because i cant handle it, its too hard to use ;A; This is god telling me that i should just stick to here LOL LOL.
Dinner with the girls
It has been quite some time since we last had a gathering with all five of us. In fact, i was feeling really down during the afternoon and wanted to skip the dinner with the girls. However i had to meet Jorine to get back my stuffs so i decided to go for the meal in the end. Thank god i did, because these girls made my day.
We had our dinner at a western restaurant called 49Seats recommended by Xinni. The food was pretty decent, and the service was remarkable. Another perk is that it doesn't have service and GST charge added on to the price tied with the food, and you can get a drink + soup of the day + a piece of garlic bread + main dish w/two sides for under SGD20. I think for a restaurant with that kinda service standard and atmosphere its pretty worth it :)
I only managed to take a picture of my dish because the others had to eat their spag to keep it yummy 8D I ordered Genesis Fish. It's actually pretty decent but not like damn damn nice. I thought their Carbonara was good though. (Yingting ordered!)
After which we went to buy KOI (only me actually) and walked to Chinatown MRT station. From universities, to love life, to movies and drama serials, to jobs and to sagging breasts (all these done whilst we are playing around with each other's clothes - more of Yingting's LOL)
It has been a really great night spent with them today
7 years of friendship & counting!
The reason for my moodiness was really because of university admissions. Basically Xinni & Cassia has received their letter of acceptance from NTU, and Yingting has been called down for an interview from NTU. It's really worrying for me to know that i have neither received any calls nor letters from any of the universities. I did make Plan B and Plan C for myself should i failed to enter a university with my current GPA, but i cant help but to admit that i really want to experience the life and be called a "university student" from others. Needless to say, i have been checking out other options like private schooling in SG and overseas. My best bet is with the University of Melbourne and to pursue a degree in criminology.
Problems - School fees, being alone and away from family & friends, leaving SJ to fend for himself in army and not being there as a supporting pillar. I must say that the last factor came as a surprise to myself because i have always thought of myself to place studies before relationships when i was single. I think its really different when you perceive a situation AND being in the situation yourself.
My best hope is still to be able to get into one of the three local unis in SG. If not, going to Melbourne with a scholarship and coming back to serve my bonds seems like an option i have to consider very seriously.
& then there is the big problem about jobs. Stepping into the adult world is a very, very scary thought for me. Internship is entirely different because come on, not only is there a "deadline" or some sort of the time period you serve, people are generally less critical on you since you are working as an intern. It's kinda true for my case, but i am not gonna generalized because i know some people really do shit for their internship.
Nevertheless, life is too short to worry so much. I have submitted all my admission slips and now all i have to do is to await my results patiently. Should i be rejected, 这也是上帝给的考验。It's something i have to handle.
I have recently managed to secure an internship with Leo Burnett, an international advertising firm. For someone with no advertising background at all, i'm actually kinda nervous yet excited to see what this intern path lies for me. I am still waiting for confirmation call from the HR department so no guarantees. I am only told by the director that his team has chosen me to fill up one of the two positions avl in the company. I am actually really grateful to the director (he was actually the one who told me about this job position and asked me to go for the interview. Not only this, he advised me on how should i write my resume and cover letter accordingly. So nice of him right!
The manager warned me that it would be tough and OTs are very common in this industry. But i think that i would be able to attend photoshoots and learn as i work, and this is all pretty exciting to me! & i can have lunch with SJ because we would be working at the same area hee-haw. But he is such a slacker HAHA, always dozing off during his work.
In any case, i hope to hear from the company soon! Hahahha, till then~
