Okay I dont really know where that ramble of an introduction came from but I'll stick to it lol. Anyways I'm opening my post with Giriboy's Skit. I shared Zion T's See Through on this blog in 2014 and he recently blew up so I still insist on embedding videos on here although it's such an old thing to do, hoping that someone out there appreciates my taste in music LOL.
As I mentioned in my previous post, what kept me busy for the past coupla months were my internships so I will tell you more about how those went. I was lucky enough to have gotten the opportunity to intern at these firms from my uni because I won a book prize. During the two months, more than anything I realised how lucky I have been in that I always went to a school never even an hour's drive away from where I live. Having to take the trains during the past two months really took a toll on me because I really couldnt deal with the reality of how uncivilised people can be. Random strangers (men and women both) will try to provoke you for a fight out of nowhere, people will conveniently push you aside to cut your queue just so that they dont have to wait for the next train (although the friggin train comes every 5mins), when the train is approaching people at the back will start pushing the people at the front without any regard for anyone's safety (a bunch of people falling onto the train track seems to be a small price to pay to go home 5mins earlier LOL). I find it even harder to digest the fact that these people are equally indifferent even for the safety of kids when the train is literally jam packed. Seeing high school and college kids taking the trains every day, I really dont know what kind of hollow being I would have become if I had to face this reality of the world every single day for such a long period of time. But in retrospect, especially after hearing from my ex-colleague about all the things she had to go through like being molested, having her phone stolen, I am really lucky.
I guess what made my horrifying commute worthwhile were the wonderful people that I have met during my internships. I feel like I was a complete wreck during my first internship because I knew my work sucked and I had absolutely no chill about anything because everything was just so new to me, to the point that I was having second thoughts about continuing my degree LOL. But of course, things got a lot better over time and I am eternally grateful for all the support, love and care I received from those around me during that period of time. When things were so hectic and everything was moving so quickly, I really held onto all the encouragement and support I received to keep moving forward. I guess interactions like these makes an otherwise mundane and meaningless working life worthwhile.
It is August now and I have less than a month until I am off across the globe to England for uni. This is by far the greatest journey I have ever embarked on and I dont really know what to do with my limited time left. It's too early to start stressing, but time is running out so I cant keep walking at the same pace~
