It’s March Holidays.. and I work in a school. Of course it’s my week off. Been nua-ing at home (like sleep at 3/4/5am wake up at 11/12/1/2/3pm kind), watching Sungkyunkwan Scandal (after skipping Poseidon and Secret Garden and cursing to MBC on why they delay my Moon/Sun finale episodes).. it’s been a nice time off, since I didn’t have to wake up early, travel so much and come back home feeling tired and all. Thankful for the week off.
And on another note, my boss happily allowed me to go Japan with D. Hahaha.
On another note, procrastination is a devil. Just finished booking accommodation with D in Japan today at long last, amounts up to about S$450 so I guess that’s fine.. hope we won’t be so unfortunate as to book a 黑店 lol. Expenditure is crazy, currently at S$1.1k, excluding transportation, food and shopping. End of the day probably gonna amount to $3k+. Kinda expected it for Japan, but aigoo..
Anyway the point is, we’re nearly halfway through. It’s been about 3.5 months since my last A Level paper on 1 December 2011. Cheehoe recently reminded me on his birthday to spend the remaining 4.5 months doing what I wanted to do that I could never have done before in a busy school term. I shall just list the few that I actually remember lol (since I upgraded to an iPhone 4S and didn’t manage to back up some old notes):
- Learn a new language: Korean, French, Japanese, Spanish
- Learn driving
- Vacation in Seoul
- Backpacking in Aussie
- Buy a DSLR
- Explore Singapore
- Catch up on dramas
- Find what I wanted to do in life
- Pack room
- Read unread books
- Find Christ again
1. Learn a new language: Korean, French, Japanese, Spanish
I am learning Korean, at a proper class with a proper teacher. Well.. not a very good language class since the teacher really isn’t an effective bilingual (in Korean and English, not that her Chinese is very good either).. at least my couple of months of self-exploration on the Korean language has prepped me well for learning this! But it gets kinda boring..
Going to Japan means having to pick up essential words too.. I feel so foreign from Japanese that I think I will simply speak Korean in the face of native Japanese. LOL.
2. Learn driving
I passed BTT.. well. Still very much repel driving. Maybe I’ll start soon.. after I come back from Japan? Sounds good.
3. Vacation in Seoul
Got completely hooked on K-Pop since August 2011, and I really enjoy Seoul culture and all.. so I really wanted to go. Planning to save this vacation up and go on a longer student exchange instead. Hahaha.
4. Backpacking in Aussie
When I’m older, when I feel like I don’t owe the world anything any more, I will.
5. Buy a DSLR
Fingers crossed, hopefully I’ll get one tomorrow. LOL.
#update: I JUST GOT IT LOL.
6. Explore Singapore
By this I meant go to the Zoo, go to free museums, walk around town etc and actually know and command Singapore’s culture to heart
7. Catch up on dramas
I most certainly did.. though I’m lagging behind in many shows (other than Grey’s)
8. Find what I wanted to do in life
This is a certain.. but not really certain. I finally switched away from Sociology to Psychology, and I’m pretty certain I wanna head in this direction, and I’m praying that this is the right one for me.
9. Pack room
Packed, need to pack again.
10. Read unread books
Gotta start! Bought like 7 new books but haven’t read a single one. Need to start shelf my Korean book (by Ban Ki Moon, can’t read it yet for nuts..) and dig out my 10+ unread Picoult books. And my awesome possum psychology books 😀
11. Find Christ again
I think more importantly than this, it’s to find the relationship and make it everlasting.. tough journey so far.
Gotta meet up with friends.. Jia Hui, Glada.. you know. To chill, not to talk about work and stuff. Been drowning in work and worrying about money issues for the past 1.5 months. Crazy.
On a side note, been tasked to write up on why I went back to DHS after taking Os.. lol. Looking back on the then entirely irrational side of Yi Xi.. crazy. Crazy times.
