This is written for broke college students. By broke, I mean 2.50 in your bank account kind of broke. That's how bad it gets. One uber ride here 'cause you're late and another expensive 10 bucks meal there and before you know it, you're utterly down to your last dollar. This cycle repeats every month … Continue reading How not to be always ‘broke’
The last time I posted something it was December. It's half of Sem 2 now and it's been nothing short of a roller coaster ride as always. The first two weeks of the semester I struggled deeply with inner lack of motivation as I hauled myself back up from the pits of the effects of … Continue reading Mid-semester update
Most people have their timetables empty when they come into university. Slowly with every fair that they go to, whether it is faculty events fairs, CCA fairs, sports fairs, etc., it starts filling up, first the weeknights, then the Saturdays and Sundays (perhaps) and then the slots where they don’t have lectures, and it … Continue reading A Christian student in college
So I caught Marvel Studios Doctor Strange in cinemas today. What a load of CGI to begin with. Generally, it was pretty decent, with the sort of quality expected from Marvel movies, if you’re a fan you’d know that another of the 6 Infinity gems was also part of the movie and post credits scene … Continue reading Doctor Strange review

It was not because I was too busy or anything but more like emotionally and mentally I was thrown into the deep end and left to survive there.

It's been half a semester. Yes, it's that fast, I'm starting to wonder where the first 6 weeks went. It was like a blitzkrieg in some ways more than one. I guess God answered my prayer when I asked to be pulled out of my comfort zone. I really got thrown so far out I … Continue reading Recess Week // Midterm Reflection
zzFor what it’s worth, I’d thought I’d write this. This post goes out to what I would call overenthusiastic freshmen. The madness of the semester has fallen onto you and you want to do everything. You see potential in yourself and so much ‘sparkling’ promise in every club’s booth you walked past during the Student … Continue reading For the Overenthusiastic
Getting out of one's comfort zone is not a very pleasant way to live life, whether you are forced out of your comfort zone or you intentionally do it. But it is important. One thing I have learnt from the many small and large decisions I made in NUS is this, the moment you get … Continue reading Transition and growth // Goal setting, Y2
There's about one word to describe freshie year and that's insane. From camps to Sem 1 and then 2, it's madness. Here's my advice/opinion to incoming freshies. Fear not, and try everything. I cannot overstate this. I think my one advice to incoming freshmen would be, don't be afraid of the unknown. Well, in my … Continue reading Freshman Year, secure.
