2nd week back in school after my 3 month plus stint in TECSC. It feels good to be back! Though I am still not into the study mode yet, but I am more determined to study this sem (partly because of my modules and for my exchange).
First week of school had mixed feelings. Unsure, because I was rarely in school the whole summer. Excited, because I missed school and being able to have time to go out with friends, other than on weekends. Tired, though it is only the first week only but filled with booth duty, outings and having my 21st Birthday Party.
Well as usual, let me give a summary of my first week back in sch >>
Had lunch with my BFF/Not-so-close friend at Dean & Deluca. We ordered “Berries and Flap Jacks” but it was too much for a one person’s serving 😛 We had to pack the pancakes, but I ended giving my pancakes to Challenge booth people since they had not eaten their lunch.
Had my first lesson of the Semester: Deconstructing Singapore Society. I feel the lesson helps me to learn more about Singapore, the laws, political scene, etc.. So I don’t think I will drop the class. But I must admit that I think we are walking on thin lines >.<
First time I kept hearing a prof asking his students to drop his class, but it was all for good intentions. We are going to work in groups often and have fieldtrips to polyclinic to work on improving patient experience.
Tuesday is also my most free day. 1 morning class and I can head home to rest le !!
Met up with T17 girls, like a finally ((: the topics we talk about really changed over the years. We went The Coffee Daily, which only had nice coffee and not much food. Since it is near my house, I might head there often for <alone> time. haix 1 evening was not enough for us , or more for me, to catch up with the rest, especially when they are mostly all in NUS.
My 21st Birthday!!!
woke up and immediately packed my stuff for the chalet then drove down (: Once there, we started the decorations with my aunt’s beautician (but sadly I do not have the photos of that with me now. It was good to have everyone there but i barely had time to entertain everyone. Appreciative that my friends still enjoy the company, food and my cake!!! Picture coming up ((:
The Beautician made two lovely bouquets for Sam and me ((:
My 21st Birthday cake!! Winnie the Pooh(:
Presents from Valerie, Fiona and Lixia (who is currently on exchange). Super thankful to theses girls for being there since secondary school, even though I often cant meet up with them due to my involvement in school activities. I promise that i will spend more time with you girls, especially after I end my term of office!! Presents from T17. Missed the times when we sit together at one table on the canteen and just gossip the day away. All the fun memories the T17 had provided me with are irreplaceable. We often have study group at NLB or Macs, and aso stayed back for the Night study sessions. Huiyi Lee, I still remember we tried to catch the same bus to go to Changi Airport to study, but i don’t rmb us succeeding even once 😛
