Is it juz me or does 2010 sound like some distant future? I felt like I'm in the future or something which they will owas portray in Hollywood movies. 2009 is over, not exactly a good year, but also not a bad year, but it definitely ended pretty well with things going smoothly.
The initial part of 2009 was hellish. I had relationship n academic problems. The few months from Jan to May were a struggle for me. Endless quarrels with MQ, plus my shitty workload of 26MCs. It was terrible to say the least. I was immensely stressed up, unhappy, exhausted n totally hopeless.
It all ended in May. Exams ended, relationship oso ended. Got my results, failed one module when it could haf been worse. I was thankful fate isn't that cruel to me. I picked myself up, continued life as usual, burying myself in school work during special term. Heading to n returning from school alone. I eat, I sleep, I rest, I recuperate n I took care of myself.
Tried my best on assignments, focusing on my tasks at hand, n I did alright. When both parts of special term ended, it was reservist time. It was nice seeing old mates again. We had fun, we had nice little chats n we luv the slackest training ever in our ICT history.
When ICT ended, school reopened. I bidded for modules which I think will be good for my fragile confidence n carried on with life in NUS. Projects here n there, life was pretty much easier for me this time round. Became more active too with jogs/runs twice per week. It felt good. Although there were the occasional stressful periods of project/assignment deadlines, it still wasn't as bad as previous semesters.
For once, I ended a semester happy with wad i've done. I tried my best, I did wad I could n I made new nice frens from project groups. The results may not be wad I yearn for, but i'm satisfied with it.
2009 certainly ended on a happy note with family n frens. Christmas Eve gathering, Christmas Day late night jogging, Boxing Day crab gathering, NYE family gathering n NYD dinner. N i bought myself a gift too, how nice...

I really haf to choose my modules properly n carefully. Then there's Chinese New Year in February, for the 1st time in 4yrs i'll be single, n everyone will be asking why am I alone, again.
N if everything goes according to plan, I'll graduate in July/August n bid my farewell to NUS. Then, it's another big change in my life. I need to get myself a job. Wad do i wanna do? I dunno. I wan a job dat pays well, which I enjoy n haf good future prospects. LoL..

I hope 2010 will be good.
