It’s been months since my last blog post. I’m not sure if I still want to keep this blog as a Korean entertainment blog because frankly, I’ve been too lazy and unmotivated to look and listen to new idol singers because it’s all too common and they’re not appealing anymore. Maybe my interests have changed. I still read Korean news but less on entertainment side and more on gender studies or societal issues.

I have been searching for a suitable job after coming back from my one month holiday in Myanmar. It’s been 3 months and I’ve probably had like 15 interviews. I am at that point of my life where the next step I take would determine my career path, therefore, I couldnt help but be a little picky about the jobs. In the beginning, I thought of  going into research because I really love science. I went for many interviews in both NUS and NTU. The pay was really meh and I wasnt sure which area would actually interest me because Science is so broad. I narrowed down to 3 areas and they were research in Microbiology, Immunology and cancer research. Even so, it’s still too broad and I didnt have confidence if I would excel in any of those areas. I also had to consider which professor to work under so I could continue my masters. Lady luck wasnt on my side because the professor I liked was relocating back to UK and the one I dont like was really an ass and I decided to withdraw from my application. I also talked to several research fellows and phd students to get a better understanding of an academia life. I therefore came to a conclusion that unless I pursue a phd, I am not going to be contributing any research or discoveries that could make a significant impact in the science community. Since I didnt have enough desire to go all the way to phd, I decided to think of other alternative career paths.

I realise that what I wanted was something more that could contribute or play a direct role in improving the quality of life for others. No , I’m not continuing to do Medicine because that would take like 4 more years of stressful schooling and I dont have the finances for it ( I did consider it if I had the financial means). Hence, I’m moving to clinical trials and have gotten a job offer from a CRO. It was that or Merck ( which was slow in offering me a job so I took the other offer). I just hope I wont get any problems from animal activists. What I definitely want from this job is to learn new technical skills that can be transferable if I move into the government sector. Afterall, qualifications are nothing with experience.

Good bye Uni XD for now.

Although exams are over and I’m graduating, I don’t really feel anything. I guess it’s not such a big deal afterall. Not when you don’t have people growing along side you throughout your undergrad studies. I blame the advance credits for that I guess, and my lack of interest in other people. The ceromony is not even going mean  anything to me, just another peice of paper to meet society’s expectations. Told my parents I’m not going to attend it , meh.

At least I’m excited about coming back to singapore. It’s been four months since I’ve seen you and it makes me happy inside whenever I think about you to the extent that I act like I’m fangirling over some idol. HAHA. Air tickets, here I come =)

While trying to absorb all these drugs for neuropathic pain, I got hooked on the songs from the new wondergirls album. Just what I need to relax through the study breaks! The sounds are refreshing and there are definitely influences of English pop in this new album but it comes across as cute and rather addictive. My favourites includes NUSHOES and SUPERB. Thw whole album is definitely worth buying!

And for visuals sake, KIM YOO BIN”s so hot!

Apparently I got wasted. Drank most of the red wine with 2 ciders. Kissed 2 girls. Slept on someone’s boobs and lie on someone’s thighs. Hugged my 2 guy friends who got freaked out and typed gibberish on msn.

I such a lousy drinker.

That’s what my psychology friend calls it.

I don’t know what’s got into me, I skipped school today. After all the partying, pranks and lazing around over the weekends, just because I got  sick of ppl saying that I’m anti-social. Hur hur. So instead of studying complement proteins and pathogenic strains of E.coli, I woke up at noon, ate lunch and read a novel. Then I started crying non-stop and I have no idea why. A perfectly logical person like  me tearing up. URGH.

I think too much about stuff. That’s what I do and it saddens me. I see an expiry date everywhere and every time I’m with someone.

FUCK. I should just concentrate on my studies for now.
