“Better stop dreaming of the quiet life, it’s the one we’ll never know.. “


Yeah, I know, I know.. I should’ve been updating this blog with so many exciting posts on how awesome life is in Singapore, right?

Trust me, I wish I could.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like it here. Honest to God, I do. There’s no such thing as getting bored in this place. And while I do plead guilty for not posting anything about all the stuff that went on throughout this term (Colour Run, all the fancy schmancy places, Upacara Bendera at the Embassy, having friends over from home, having parents over from here, adjusting to living on my own for the first time, being the only Indo in the whole year, heck knows what else. Too much to mention, seriously.), I honestly just couldn’t find the time to do so. Not even “hectic” can half-describe it.

Well, let’s put it this way. I’ve been having trouble finding time to even sleep, let alone post updates here. So.. *shrugs* But hey! at least now I’m here typing this post, right? This counts, no?

Yep, I’ve managed to stay alive so far. It’s been fun, for real. But for the most part, it’s been challenging. And by challenging, I mean it’s almost at the point where I’m actually wondering if I could even survive this whole thing. But seeing that I’m almost at the end of the first term, I guess it hasn’t been a total bang-up job so far. Almost halfway through! I know, right? Little ol’ me, who didn’t even think she would get through to NUS in the first place, has actually been keeping her head above water for all this time!

Hopefully, when I get into the semester break, I’ll manage some sort of recap on things. But for now, I guess this’ll have to do. Consider this my “Hi, I’m still alive” note. And now that you’re reading this post, wish me luck on my assignments and upcoming exams?

In the meantime, this hobbit shall return to her assignment and readings..
