Just the other day, i had a sudden rush to plan my life again. Seeing the email about new internship opportunities at Bloomberg set me off to one of those Do Something Abourit moments. The next thing i know, i was off searching for tips and drafting out my first ever resume. I am ashamed to say that, after 17 years of education, i have not been taught how to write one. But blaming education aside, I am really glad that next semester is going to start late – 30th August yo ! Really 3 cheers to NTU and YOG for that. (But i’m going to complain abourit come the break at the end of the year.) For now, cheerios.
So this gives me 3 whole good months of holidays and i am terribly excited for that. The chances of getting that internship is probably as thin as my Will to exercise though. But i am really hoping to do something that is actually related to what i’m studying and not bum out the 3 months long break, which is Not unlikely. It happened last year and i ended up scooping ice cream and forgetting how to hold a pen.
I do want to be proactive about it this time and get out there to poof up my near non-existent portfolio. But of course, this is me speaking when i’m having too much time on hand right now at Lakehead University. This is me missing being Busy with a thousand and one things on hand. Right now i am just busy thinking about the little world tour at the end of this semester and when i can build my snowman outside.
For all i know, when i get back i may just Melt into the comforting arms of my friends, loved ones and everything Singapura, getting back whatever that i have miss for the first 5 months of 2010.
We shall see eh ?
Back from Vanvancouver and into reality. Supposed to be doing my Meteorology assignment now but i am uploading 4gb worth of photos instead. This is berry bad. I miss the 10 degree celsius and street life in Vancouver.
Well well, time to hit the gym. My face is telling me to soon, if not it will be too late. Time to save more moolah too and live on bread crumbs in preparation for my world tour in May. We are looking at Toronto – Montreal – Boston – Washington – New York. Looking at that for now, it better happen hor. Gonna get down to real planning after the next 2 killer weeks.
8 more weeks to go before school’s out for me ! HURHUR.
I am sure i want to come back here again – Vancouver is too awesome.
Day 2 in this amazing city of Canada and i am loving it. Far far cry from the small and laid back Thunder Bay ! For the record the weather here is GOOD. 8 degrees to us now is really nothing. It is like Vivocity. Hahaha. Shopping is fabulous with their ridiculously Shiok sales. (Example: I bought 2 bags from Aldo for less than 30 dollals) Food is Too Good To Be True. Wide variety of Asian cuisine especially. The Korean place that i went for dinner last night served perhaps one of the most authentic Korean food i have ever tried. And of course the Olympics fever is Crasi. The whole place is in a massive celebration !
At this rate we are going, i am going to be dead broke, mad fat and getting increasingly Canadian-fied, if there’s such a term.
Okay, time to rest and rejuvenate for tomorrow. We are going to AYG and part of the opening ceremony of the Olympics by going to the BC Stadium, outside. Hee.
It is my Sunday night now and i just finish watching my daily dose of Dexter. Plugged into the newly downloaded Florence And The Machine and somehow i don’t know what to do next. It is still early, it is only 12:17AM.
I want to watch another episode of Dexter, but i don’t want to finish up Season 2 so soon either.
Anyways, we finally got down to plan our Vancouver trip today. It is really not easy planning for a 10-days trip, what’s more we want to make sure the trip is worth every single penny and that it can compensate for our first ever absence from CNY back home. I probably would go through a nasty bout of homesickness when CNY comes. It is my favourite holiday after all and i never like to miss out on any family fun. But cheerios cheers, this is where Vancouver will come in.
I am signing up for 10-day massive retail therapy and Asian food revenge spree. And of course, a above zero degree celsius Weather.
Wednesday come quick, come.
Why do i not sound anything like Excited. Ah, damn you Period. My back is bbbbbbreaking.
I need to lie down now.
