Sorry for the lack of updates on the blog! Been a busybee for the past week, been to a number of food places i meant to blog about,but i just havent got down to it.A few updates now…firstly, I’ve officially graduated as of yesterday,monday! With the convocation,an oversized mortar board and gown,and all that jazz.It was a fun,warm and meaningful evening for me.We cheered loudly for our fellow coursemates,as we each went up on stage to collect our hardearned scrolls and honours.
It has been quite a journey to get to this point…for me especially,it has been a tough journey filled with many painful moments of self doubt,and with more than a few times I’ve seriously considered simply giving up and quitting this 4th year of study,because I wasnt happy with my honours rank,that I honestly believed that I must be the dumbest one in my class,and that i did not deserve to be in there. Im glad that I did not quit,but chose to stuck it out no matter how bad it got.Ive gained a lot from my honour classes and from the process of writing my Singapore film research paper,met some wonderful professors,classmates and filmmakers;brilliant people who will go very far in the business im sure,and Ive basically moulded myself into a more confident and independent person. If I had quitted halfway,(which i almost,almost did last semester) all of these would have never materialised.So Im pretty happy.
Clara (and Mag) if you’re taking a break from your lab-rats and reading this in your office,thanks very much for the blooms and painstakingly “pinning” my oversized gown together to ensure there will be no embarressing moments on stage.:D
Photos will be up soon!
