I generally wait for the results to come out before a round up of the sem, but this time around have decided to do it before..simply cos i for some reason don’t wanna blog abt results this time around..I’m actually living in denial about the existence of friday this week…
I started off the sem after a good break at home filled with the love and warmth of family, friends, good food and cheap shopping! It was an amazing break, and to leave them and come back to Singapore was ofcourse sad, but then again, it gave me the perfect motivation to start off the sem..
Once i got to Singapore everything was just ever so hectic, what with IHG going on (thus cheering, and taking photos for photocomm), the Sheares bazaar was just around the corner, Sheares Production rehearsals took up most of the evenings and JCRC/SCRC added more to it!!! To add on, school started with module bidding, as always, taking a toll on our lives…Hall definitely dominated my life then (actually throughout the sem too), with the very few lectures i went to being used up for catching up on sleep lost due to hall commitment…
Infusion was the first major event of this sem – and due to the heavy hall commitments, i did not participate in International Students night, though the i did help out at the infusion bazaar…alot of camwhoring was involved, and so was alot of attention..because almost all the guys who came in to our booth claimed that Sri Lankan girls are the hottest ever *blush*..and we even have proof…go read the guest book:P
CNY break came, followed by a whole stream of midterms (4/5 with one of them even being like 40%!!!), and it was druing this time that the Sheares bazaar was held too…and thus i was totally drained out then..alot of people, and my clothes showed me the amount of weight i had lost then..but when the bazaar was over, and that too successfully, there was nothing more that i could have asked for thanks to my wonderful comm, my vice chair, and my directors, Winson and Karen, and ofcourse all those others who supported me in one way or the other…
As soon as the bazaar was over, and the mid term galore was history, there came Sheares Production (wind in the willows)…daily rehearsals became a norm, seeing the cast talk to themselves or to their mirrors in their rooms was not surprising, and calling each other by our roles became normal (people still call me us rabbits, Toad, Badger and what not!)…This has to be the most amazing SP ever what with such a big cast, a full house for all 3 shows, and the astounding reviews that came after! The 3 days in the dressing rooms were also experiences of a life time – and they were easily the very best moments of SP – ok so maybe the audience applause at the end of the whole show could have been a good competitor..but nevertheless, bursting/camwhoring/talking cock/ rocked!!! And kudos to ChoonHan and team for an amazing show, and for giving us an rocking experience!
After SP came all the higher end hall stuff like points issues and such…and at the same time came the time to start frequenting the biz library to catch up on all the work..and this time around the hours spent at the library were actually excessive to the extent that i actually made some good friends from the library..eg: Niron, Colin (well, not really – he was in global marketing with me), Nicholas, Jasmine, hasvani and so on….
Alot of Birthdays came about in that time span, and so that meant alot of cakes, celebration, and memories…but also alot of money busting!
As the end of the sem got closer and closer, the hardcore mugging began – and this time, i studied like never before…i guess alot of previous blogposts are talk about this, so i shall not elaborate..but the exams came and went…and the library has been sorely missed ever since..no seriously, i miss the people, the inside jokes, the “lets be mean to niron” sessions, the library aunties, the mocha freeze – basically the atmosphere there itself! (Muggers United – this para is a dedication to u for acutally adding enthusiasm into studying…<3)
And with that came the summer hols – and the internship..working at e27 now – its a startup located at teh incubator….and its alot of fun – in the way that i am learning a whole load of things, and in the way that the people there are really fun to hang around with! A separate post on internship/summer hols will be up at the end of the hols..so expect more on this then..
But all in all, i guess its been my most stressful/most enjoyable/most value adding semester in NUS so far! And although my results tmrw are extremely critical for me, i have decided that its not worth getting stressed over…cos after all, its the experience and friendships that i gained during the sem that matter the most!
