It's been a Journey

Fact is I'm done with all academics in my final year of polytechnic. It's been a love-hate relationship. Graduating from TP, the feeling is totally different from when I first stepped in. I remember, the then innocent hype of getting into TP... now, I can't wait to graduate and quickly get the hype of entering university. Not that TP is not good, it's just the 'finally graduating' feeling (: In fact, when I think about my school life in TP, it's been an amazing one. I will def miss my classmates, BSC which has been a part of me, the Business Pride, people-watching and blasting music during booth duty, camps, etc. TP has given me lots of opportunities and I'm glad I fulfilled my obligations/promise of contributing lots to TP as well.

Now that I have finally completed my diploma, I need to think of what am I going to do? Many things to consider. I know I'm not alone. Honestly, I'm only interested in University because of the people I'm gonna meet and the global passport exposure and experiences I get. Not so much of studies-wise. I think we students/singaporeans/humans have been molded into creatures thinking that we need a certificate to survive in the real world. Hey look! The cert only gets you to the future job interview... if you realise (okay, at least you get called up for the interview) Basically, I feel that furthering studies sometimes is simply perhaps because of societal expectations or norms. No matter what, we should do something that we really like. I just want to choose a course I think I would do enjoy and have fun in. Sometime that shouts 'ME!'. I just don't want to end up in a common situation I see happening around: Not working in the field that the person has studied. I think that's really funny. Then why study right? haha. Don't understand!



A part of me am not exactly looking forward to back to school due to the fact that I would need to rush all my remaining modules this upcoming semester. And I would need to take an extra one because I took one less during one semester back then. Coupled with another fact that there are quite a few finance mods, I foresee that it will be an extremely hectic semester.
The other part is that I started to feel a lil sad knowing that the internship is ending as there are so many things there that I want to learn, yet to be learned and so many other areas that I can barely get in touch in the next last few weeks. No doubt, the past two months in the company has been really fulfilling, thanks to a great mentor, many mentors in fact and a great tiger boss (a cool title the colleagues came out with). Well, I shall treasure the time left to complete my projects, appreciate them at the same time and learn more things!
Other than work, the culture there is pretty cool, birthdays, team gatherings and events are definitely highlights of work too.


Coming to SMU is already proving academic achievement, so just don't hang out with your grades. The only reason why I wanna work hard is for my kids, don't want them to have to worry about finance like something my parents did for me.

"You got exam no exam like the same one leh"

I don't want myself to regret not travelling and enjoying myself. If I can only regret one thing, it's probably that rather than not studying
