It has been a while and during that time I felt like something was missing but I had to focus on other things. Last time I posted I was planning to do a walk down memory lane posts for my five years in campus but I only managed to write for the first year. To be honest, my second year is a bit blurry but I have something to say so those posts are still in the works. So I had already written the second one and was ready to post it on a Sunday afternoon when I get an email that I have used up my space. I did not believe it that is when my ignorance about web design came to play ( haha) I was like should I delete some stuff then other issues came up. I was starting my exams so that is why I had to pause.
In a nutshell, let me give you an update of my last weeks in campus. Exam time for me is always hectic despite all the prior preparations. During this period the fries lady is the person I was always catching up with. What is sleep during this time? I was even having nightmares about being late for exams imagine. It was a vicious cycle: wake up at 2 am, have breakfast like at 6 am, read even more then go for my paper. I even had to blur the dirty dishes that were always on the sink.
I think what I was most anxious about was my final defence. The final report was ready, the slides had been prepared but I just felt like I was doing it for the first time. I had a whole weekend to kind of prepare but every time I thought about it a chill just passed down my spine. ( haha remember using this in compositions) I did not get any sleep the night before I just wanted to finish and I felt like that was not too much to ask for. Apart from all that we usually had an order for how the presentations were done, so I always presented second but for the final one, you could not tell who was to present next. That just made everything worse for me because I felt like the content was disappearing. Presentations started at 9 am I think I presented at 12:30 pm unlike other times when I was done by 9:45 am. Getting compliments from one of the panellists about a good presentation gave me the peace I needed.
During this time I also had to pack up my stuff to move out. I thought to move into a new place was hectic but moving out is worse. It also gave me a chance to do some spring cleaning and only carry what I needed. I will definitely is my bedsitter after making it a home for myself for a few years. That is how I spent the end of August.
Was that really in a nutshell or did I say too much? So what is next? I will explain more in the posts to come. I had really missed writing.
