Hello people! [不知不觉, because I don’t have an accurate translated word in English] we have unknowingly lapsed into my last full week in Hong Kong. In about 10 days, I’ll be Singapore-bound!! I accepted the offer from my university only two days ago, but in those two days, I’ve read up on how to matriculate, how to apply for various things, and basically prepared myself emotionally, that it feels like I’ve been ready for this since forever. Which isn’t really true. My parents wanted me to go to the other university I applied to, but this one (my first choice!!) replied me first, so… Yep.
Anyway, the past two days have been a huge rollercoaster ride of emotions, from thinking about being homesick and then becoming homesick, fear of drifting apart from everyone, excitement at the prospect of starting something new, overwhelmed at how hands-on everything seems to be… The list goes on. In this time, a bunch of thoughts keep resurfacing – things I’m so excited for, and things I’m not-so-excited for.
|READY! :)||not :(|
At the end of the day, despite the long list of things I’m not ready for, life doesn’t exactly give me a choice. It makes the choice for me, and I’m grateful because I’m kind of… y’know… forced to accept it and move on. According to my friend, by the time everything starts to happen – orientation, making friends, attending class – I won’t have time to notice how I’ve drifted from my current friends. It’s more than sad to think about and realise at this point of time, but in two or three weeks… it won’t even matter anymore. That’s downright tragic.
