Not so long ago, I was all excited about going back to school. The stationery shopping after a full decade was fun. Haha. Then, I had problems managing my intensely hectic schedule and called it quits. At the urging of my course mates, I re-registered myself the next semester.
It’s been three and a half years!
The time-juggling feat hasn’t been easy. While I breezed through some modules effortlessly, I had a hard time reading some of the stuff chucked in my face. But it’s been pretty enriching and enjoyable, especially since I took two electives that were not related to my core subjects.
In Modern Chinese Literature, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Chin Kwee Nyet- a former radio and television news anchor. I could have sat there all night listening to her perfectly enunciated Mandarin. A term later, I was totally intrigued with what I learnt in Singapore Sociology. And it’s been really satisfying churning out wordy essays- something which I haven’t done in a long time.
Even before I clear this hurdle, I’ve been looking at courses for the next academic year. Heh.
Two papers this week, then two more the next. And I’ll be done!
