At the time being...

I guess I should explain the case of my disappearing act although if you've read my last 5 blog posts, you would have found the answer already haha. But yeah, since now I have a little time to breathe after my 'non-stop hits' of classes for 3 whole days, let me just do a little update here. First of all, I'm sorry for not being able to commit in writing more stuff in my blog. Things weren't how it used to be before where I don't exactly have that much priorities to look after but ever since I started my post grad studies, time seems to be something that is valuable and crucial to me and blogging isn't part of my priority anymore (why does it makes me feel bad saying this? You know it's like when you have your own child, suddenly your priorities have changed and what you want to focus on is to care and nurture your child. So, it's kinda like the same thing :D I don't even know if there's anyone who's still reading my blog to be honest, like I know sometimes my cousins will drop by here from time to time and I will too sometimes just to read back my archives but that's pretty much about it. Sometimes I don't even know whether I should just leave this blog as it is or still constantly update it but...I've had this blog for 12 years now. 12 whole freaking years! I just couldn't abandon it, just yet. I will still continue to update, although it'll be lesser this time but definitely won't leave the blogsphere world yet. Anyway, thank you for still coming here and check on me from time to time.

The whole month of April was cray cray because I had to put my focus in finishing my project before my deadline which was on May 1st. I was so looking forward for the semester break (in the college I'm in) so that I can have 100% time for my project. I had to follow a strict timeline that I've set myself (yes, I kid you not) just to make sure I'll get my things done on May 1st. It wasn't an easy thing and again, I am still struggling in the research and academic writing part of my studies, like if I were to write 1500 words about my family, it would be much easier than writing about 'cultural authenticity' *sigh* I'm asking myself why did I even chose a challenging topic at the first place? Well, all is done now...I am just waiting patiently for my result which I hopefully will be a pass. Not trying to aim high and score an A but a pass will do. Okay, at least a B. I will be so damn happy if I can even score a B. Damn, it's hard to impress these English people lol. Right after my project submission, there's a short break before a new module starts this week. I went for a short holiday trip with my colleagues to Bangkok! This short holiday was soooo good for my mind and soul, albeit having to endure the insane humid weather in the city. But Bangkok is really an awesome city...well, in my opinion. I shall do a post about it soon. The new semester starts a week after my holiday in Bangkok so it was grind time for me again. It's only the second week now and my students are so far so good...well I am not expecting much as long as they are doing their best in their assignments and not make my life more harder than now lol. The only thing problem with this new semester is that I've got classes everyday except on Fridays. Monday till Wednesday, my classes are back to back from morning till evening and I gotta tell you, it really drains me out. The minute I finished my class on Thursday, I just don't want to do anything anymore instead of just web surfing and listen to some music.

I guess that's pretty much sums up my life now. Oh, during this 'study break' I have been binge-watching this Netflix show called Orange is the New Black (OITNB) thanks to my cousin Jess for recommending it :) I kinda stopped watching  US TV shows in a while because there wasn't any particular shows that interest me lately. So, there was one time my cousin called me up all the way from Perth and told me that OITNB is a must watch show and here I am, already starting with Season 2 already. Due to my social life still down in the drain, binge-watching is what I've been doing for the past 2 weeks. I think what I miss the most lately is the coffee session that I used to have with my cousin Jess, where we're constantly looking for 'hispter caf├ęs' to try cos we wanna be cool like that haha. I also miss hanging out with my good friend where basically we can just talk about anything under the sun but unfortunately, things are different now.

Oh well, whatever it is life has to go on and we will need to move forward eventually. Just yesterday, I received my second module brief, which means busy days ahead! I am kinda kinda excited in this upcoming assignment so once again, gotta start the hustle and grind from now on. Actually, my trip to Bangkok has sort of gave me a lot of thoughts about the future and moving forward and these were the things that I have not given much thoughts in a while. Maybe it has come the time for me to think through on where my path will lead me again. Okay, that's it for now...see you soon!
