Eek. I knew that I hadn’t written anything here for a pretty long time, but I didn’t realise exactly how long till I checked, and well…I am not proud. In my (very very very weak) defence, I’ve been caught up in a lot of stuff lately, having (sort of) graduated from SMU about a month ago.
What I’ve been up to:
1. Gotten a new hairstyle (haha)
Ok, so this is rather superficial, but hey, if you’ve been obsessed with having straight hair for as long as I have, this is a big thing. By the way, at the risk of sounding utterly bimbotic, having curly hair is awesome – my hair looks different everyday, but in a good way, and suddenly poofy isn’t such a bad word. Ok, that’s all I’m gonna say about that.
2. Participated in the Real Singapore Freeze
The Great Singapore Freeze was modeled after the Grand Central Freeze first done by ImprovEverywhere and adopted in many other countries. The Singapore version was held last Saturday, May 17th, in front of Ngee Ann City and was really quite a cool event. Ironically, the sun was blazing down mercilessly on us and by the end of the 5 minutes I was melting like a popsicle in summer.
You can see me (unfortunately, no close-up shots) in 2.54-2.58 and 3.30-3.34, in the bottom left corner in the black dress.
3. Getting an internship
After months of looking for a job, I finally got my big break at Ogilvy PR and will hard at work from tomorrow onwards. Excited!
4. Preparing for Vienna
In other exciting news, I’ll be going on exchange to Vienna in September, and am currently reading up as much as I can on the city. I’ll also be visiting the other European countries (Belgium, Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Italy are on the agenda for now) but I’d love your suggestions on places I can visit. Also, I’m trying to learn a bit of German now, so if there’s anybody who’s willing to teach me, perhaps we can work out a deal (I really have no use for this extra kidney…)
5. Turned 23
I turned 23 on May the 18th. And if anyone is wondering about the pink blouse I’m wearing, it was my mother’s! The theme was “Wear Your Parents’ Clothes” and unsurprisingly, I was one of the few who stuck to the theme (Boo to those who didn’t!) Btw, as a testament to the sense of humour my friends have, the cake said “Happy Vesak Day Tomorrow Nabs” instead of happy birthday. Very funny guys, very funny.
6. Preparing for a half-marathon
Me and Erfen just signed up for the Army Half Marathon which is on 24th August. This is my first marathon so I’m a bit nervous. So far the furthest I’ve run is about 12km, so I need to step up on my training a little so that I don’t faint during the actual race (haha)
Phew! For one month I guess there’s been a lot of changes in my life, but I’m really not complaining. Things are certainly looking up. Well, but that’s it from me for now. Here’s to more regular blog posts! Hopefully those who read this blog haven’t given up on me.
