End of Year 2

by - August 01, 2016

Time if free,
But it's priceless.
You can't own it,
But you can use it.
You can't keep it,
But you can spend it.
Once you've lost it,
You can never get it back.
-Harvey Mackay-


This semester passed by the quickest and I am now not only done for the semester, but also done with year 2. I am now left with only one more year to enjoy my university life - which I too know is going to fly by in a blink of an eye. 

Since my teeny-weeny experience of working with Reebonz, I have been feeling very grateful to still be studying but at the same time, I feel like I am such a burden to my parents since I am still dependent on them. This may sound rather weird, but I do look forward to earning my own income in the near future. I am a person who wants to be independent in terms of financial and life. I want to be someone who can survive on my own without having to burden others, and to give others more than I give myself.

Also from my experience with Reebonz, it has helped me so much this semester. It was so much easier for me to apply my assignments and exam questions to real life example because it was all from my experience working. I write easier and more flowy when it has something to do with personal experience - just like blogging. Albeit it was just a 2 months experience, words can't describe how grateful I am to have been granted the opportunity. It really changed my perception and perspective of so many things for the better.

I wanted to participate in more activities this semester but I guess that didn't happen. Again. I signed up for a Taylor's Career Ambassador program, went through all the interviews but I didn't manage to get a placing in it because of some unforeseen circumstances. However, I am very grateful for wonderful assignment group mates for all of my projects where nothing was done last minute at all. It was a little stressful and sometimes I do wish to procrastinate but I'm glad that with these people motivate me to always do things beforehand.

For the pass semesters, I dread going to class because it's always not interesting enough for me and I only pay attention to those that really interest me. However this time, I made myself to attend every class and pay full attention which includes taking notes thoroughly and to look into every tiniest detail that I can find. I admit, I may not be the studious person you'll meet. I am more of the happy go lucky kind of person where I wish holidays are 6 months, twice a year. Haha. But time is running out and I should know better to cherish them and make the best out of it before I miss my chance to do so.

Recently I have been considering to take up MBA part time after I stabilize my career. I was so encourage by the thought until I sat for my International Business paper. I was struggling for the paper despite having a personal 'lecturer' at home who majors in International Business. I am never a very business person and I had to do tons of research and reading about a particular topic just to make myself understand. I guess that is why I am a Mass Communication student and not others. But I know all these struggles now will come in handy for me in the future. Besides, majority of students these days doesn't choose a career based on what they studied in university anyway. So with a broader knowledge, I believe that it will open more windows for me in the future regardless how boring and uninterested I am towards it.

Holidays are here! What should I do?

I really wish to squeeze in a short vacation during this semester break. But where and when? Nothing much has been planned because there are just so many other things to consider before I can really say that I am going on a vacation this month. I won't be surprised if I don't end up going anywhere at all. However, my relatives from Australia will be visiting soon and I'll be traveling to Penang. Perhaps that would be my mini vacation. 

Is it insane for me to dream to be able to travel around the world?

As for the rest of my holiday, I am hoping to start doing some reading again and perhaps even do more of The Secret Garden colouring. It was an expensive (two) book and I shouldn't just leave it unattended and waste all my money. Also, perhaps I should start clearing my room since there's just so many things that I can give away already and not just keep it to collect dust. Well, we'll see how's my mood.

Signing off with a picture of my poodle I took recently, as well as my current favourite song!



Sincerely, Mels
