This blog has last been updated on the 20th of Sept 2012. Even that was 1 post after a year or so of inactivity. One main reason was plainly being lazy and with a secondary one being I decided to go back to school again in 2011. A second degree.
3 years later, today on the 11th June 2014, I have finally finished my LAST paper! Results will be released in August and whether I have to retake any subject will depend on that (touching wood while typing this - obviously hope not) but at least as far as things are concern now, I am done with it!
The picture was taken outside the examination center. One of the last cramming moments I will surely not miss.
3 years of hard work (sorta - doing it part time basis) and a lot of money spend. For some reason, this is the first thing I wanna do, to put an entry into this blog. Perhaps this has always been the place I have been using to share my thoughts out loud and also for a good couple of years this place has been my diary recording my experience of growing up from the break up with the only person I ever called a boyfriend.
I decided to take up this course because I know I do not enjoy the field I am currently in, but there is also a little part of me which wanted to prove that I can do what he has completed, and those in that industry need not be so arrogant and overly proud. Though by now I have to admit for those who gets 2nd upper and above (which he is in), you have my respect. I am at best a 2:2 but allow me to be a little defensive and say I did it part time.
So yea, in a way, he inspired me to try this field and it lead to me having now a second degree coming up. If I were to be romantic to describe this, fate definitely loves to tease both of us. Since our break up in December 2009, we have probably met 3 times, each about a year apart and all planned and arranged in advance with the last one in last February when I try to skip Chinese New Year and stayed in Singapore. For the first time in this past 4 and half year, we bumped into each other today, unplanned, unexpected, the day I finished the course which he gave me the idea to try.
This may just be a plain coincidence to some but how often in my life would I sit for my last paper for a degree inspired by someone (obviously if i were to put it that way the count is 1) and bump into that person on the same day?
My bestie from school who was sitting next to me saw us making eye contact and simple gestures asked who this is. I told her that's my ex and the first comment she made was, "He is very handsome" and yea, well still standing tall at over 180 and regularly gymming, hair nicely waxed and big eyes, no reason why she wouldn't say that. Although she had also been supportive later by adding who needs him luh.. I love my bestie.
Well I know it is silly to believe this is fate but no harm indulging sometimes in romantic thoughts like this. It just feels like a nice beautiful end to this 3 year journey of my second degree. The person who inspired me to start on this journey was there at the end of it. Though he definitely would not have any idea of this.
If things work out well, another new journey will begin real soon. Hopefully will be able to record it down here..
