Dear lord, when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man
When he comes, tell me that you’ll let him in
Father tell me if you can
All that grace, all that body
All that face makes me wanna party
He’s my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds
They say craving for sweet stuff means that you are probably depressed, I crave for sweet stuff almost everyday. So does that mean I am depressed every single day, but can’t I just crave for sweet stuff just because I love them?
Missing the vanilla stack cake from Le Bon and macarons from La Belle Miette (I love the ones from Luxbite too but I prefer those from La Belle, yes I can still remember how they taste like because they are awesome and I am awesome like that), aww yum. Looking forward to visiting Melbourne again if I’m really going back when the sidekick graduates weeeee ♥
I’ve finally stepped out of my cave and made some real human interactions with new people in my life for a while now (7 weeks to be exact but that’s not the point cos I’ll probably lose count after a while later). Not that hanging out and catching up with my friends, girlfriends and loved ones are not human interactions, I mean I’ve known them for so long I don’t find any difficulties connecting with them. The fact that I actually have to get to know so many new people within such short span of time is actually a huge challenge for me since I don’t open up to people on the slightest bit so easily and I can’t remember anyone’s names even after asking them over and over again. I enjoy meeting new people, don’t get me wrong, but having to do that under such an environment was quite a feat.
I am still trying my best to get myself adjusted to this whole working life (for the rest of my life) thing, it’s so exhausting. Everyday I come home planning to do something productive spending some me-time I just end up sleeping real damn early. I miss bumming around spending tons of me-time doing my own stuff at my own time own target, staying up till 4 in the morning watching my favourite dramas, writing and drawing stuff, et cetera. I haven’t caught up with Nikita, Revenge and The Following for months and I’m on the verge of giving up already but noooo I will find time for them soon.
And then it makes me wonder why some who are graduating or still studying are ridiculously eager to get a job, seriously I don’t get it. You spend close to 2 decades of your life studying your ass off to get good grades, get into a good school just to conform to the social norms, or not, and then immediately after you get yourself into the working world to create an oh-so-wonderful career for yourself blah blah blah. Give yourself a break, I honestly don’t see a need to rush into things. I mean yes you get to earn money quickly to provide for yourself or your family or whoever for whatever reason I don’t care, calm the crap down. Everything happens for a reason and if you really have to take a lot of time to get a job, then by all means take that amount of time to do something else productive at the same time while searching for one that you truly will enjoy doing instead of forcing yourself to get a job like a job will just drop from the sky right there in front of you. While it would definitely be frustrating at times to receive replies of rejections and whatnot, I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait the moment you get a job that you like and is suitable for you. Plenty of opportunities will come and by then you’re gonna work your ass off after that for the rest of your life. That definitely won’t be as nice as bumming around spending quality time with yourself or your loved ones for sure.
Besides the fact that I hate waking up early (though I love mornings, yes I always contradict myself like that), I hate the morning crowds everywhere and I hate sharing public transport with people who don’t use their brain when taking them (that’ll be another story to share), I am enjoying what I am doing now though I am trying my best to adjust to this new phase of my life, I am embracing it with all the positivity and love I can ever muster (haha). It’s interesting I must say, I am still learning a lot of stuff everyday. I learn more stuff now than back in uni to be honest, I didn’t understand half the shit that was being taught back then and I have absolutely no idea how I survived that 3 years, good job me.
Anyways, almost everyone’s finishing their exams really soon, can’t wait to meet up with my lovely girlfriends whoop whoop ♥ Can’t wait for the Taiwan trip too, it’s finally happening after 4 months since we booked our tickets and whatnots whoop whoop.
I’m having 4-day work week every week this May except for this week hehehe so happy.
I have a lot of pictures to upload but I am extremely lazy to.
Good night ♥
Anonymous asked: Hi there! I'm your fellow junior in nus science. May I know what's your basic pay of your job aft we grad? I'll not be doing honors as well. Sorry to ask such a sensitivity qn. Pls give a range if you're sensitive about it! Did it even hit 2.5k?
Hello! To be honest it varies from company to company even if they are in the same industry. I am not too sure but the usual range for a graduate with or without honours should be between 2.5k-3.0k I guess, depending on the industry and job scope. I have friends offered even higher than the usual range as well so it really depends but I guess that range would be a good gauge.
I think the most important thing is to just take your time to look around for a job that you’ll enjoy doing and pays reasonably well for your qualification (I know many don’t like and regret their first job because they rush into getting one for the sake of having one right after they graduate so that’s my point) because I can’t emphasise enough that there is really no rush to get a job at all. Spam resumes and whatnot to any and every company you can think of (and will enjoy working in it, of course), you can even applying for internships (paid or unpaid) to gain experience for yourself and your resume too.
Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wanna know more!
