I got bored

June 3rd, 2008

So it’s time to start afresh. I’ve just renewed my website URL and hosting, and I might as well make the most of it! More to come in the next few days…

It’s a pity

June 2nd, 2008

Reine said to me “It’s a pity you don’t blog anymore”. So here I am, for the umpteenth time. Let’s try again.

I know I stopped writing because I had this fear of unknown people reading my posts and learning thingsĀ  about me I didn’t want to be learnt. But the answer isn’t to stop writing, but rather to post topics of general interest that couldn’t possibly have a huge impact if someone found out. Fine.

But, what would I want to say here?

Right in front of me are my very final set of exams. Four papers, 9 days, 9 exam hours later, and I will be done with my student life. It’ll be official.

I’m trying to figure out how many papers I’ve actually set throughout my entire academic career. The answer is that I simply do not know because there have just been that many! I have this file called my “Record of Achievement” file which contains my academic certificates since I left school. I could look through this file, but those only span back about 8 years. And I’ve been taking exams barely a few years after I learnt to write.

Is it good to look forward to the next stage? The time of your life where the only exam you take is the exam of life: Where your “grades” get released the day you die and you’re judged for every little thing you’ve done throughout that time. Sure, the day before my school exam, it’s easy to say I’d prefer to be over and done with these papers. But I do feel that way. I just want to start a new phase in my life.

It’ll be tough, but if I am confident, I’m sure I can get where I want to be. When judgment day arrives, I’ll be ready with my Records of Achievement.
