2 weeks of unemployment have come to an end as of today – speaking of which, will update on unemployment period in another post, soon!
I’ll be starting my internship tomorrow with MND and I hope it will be as enjoyable as my previous teaching one! One thing I probably regret is not setting concrete goals at the start and writing them down so I will list some pointers/reminders for myself this time round before I start!
- Even if things may seem scary or daunting, just trudge through & you’ll be fine.
- Ask if you don’t understand – I was quite afraid to ask my supervisors stuff at the beginning of the TIP but I realised that I was really silly not to, everyone is always willing to help and people in the public sector are generally quite kind and approachable!
- Try to be as helpful as you can 🙂
- This one I’m still trying to grapple with – to actively ask for work or wait till supervisor assigns? Will play by ear for this.
That’s about it I think for now. If I have time, will update on my first day tomorrow after work!
Prelims are finally over!!! It amazes me how 23 days have passed from our first to our last paper & how I managed to survive without being burnt out. I have told myself that what’s done is done and I shouldn’t worry about the results 🙂 I know that God will be with me and no matter the result, it will all work out in the end. Honestly, I am never afraid of not doing well, because I know that I will bounce back eventually and I am someone who forgets things easily. But I AM afraid of disappointing those who have put so much faith in me – that’s why I tried to study periodically and consistently this time round, especially for chem, and I hope it all pays off 🙂 Also, thank you for people who have studied with me, you guys are really important to me because I can’t study productively without someone there to keep me in check.
That aside, I realised that I have become a happier person – I’d say that this half of the year has been my happiest in JC yet! It’s probably because I’m not under extreme imminent stress (like how I have to be always on my toes in council), but I have enough time to pace myself out and do things that make me happy. I also learnt to be more contented with things and I have been trying to build up my patience (definitely room for improvement for this).
Also, I really really really want to do something that will make people happy and make and impact in peoples’ lives like be a wedding planner but I doubt that this will happen >< And I know I’ve always wanted to study English but I am really not sure if teaching is cut out for me 😦 but please let me plan your weddings if this somehow works out in the end!!!!!! I promise to make everything pretty and perfect!!!!!
