For the longest time ever during the nine months break that I had from school, I had imagined university starting. At the time, it felt like school would be this wonderful beginning for me because I would finally have something to do other than driving and work. Now that school has started, I realise that it is more tiring than I thought it would be. I am still doing fine, but my schedule this semester is rather packed. I have to wake up at 6.30am from Monday to Thursday. I get to sleep in only on Fridays & Sundays because of my afternoon class and my only day of “relaxation” respectively.
As of now I’m still working part-time at the same F&B place. I spend the whole of my Saturday working, and Sunday studying, which is not equivalent to “relaxation”, let me tell you. I wouldn’t say I got lucky with my timetable, but I’m not complaining because I know for a fact that I chose this. Assignments, projects and exams piling up certainly means not much time for a break but I read blog posts and decided that it has been way too long since I last wrote, so here I am.
For the first three weekends of October, I participated in different ultimate frisbee competitions and had an absolute blast even though I was so tired from having to work on weekdays and juggling school work with sleep and trainings along with the competition on weekends, for which I had to wake up very early. I would say it was all worth it though! Below will be photos from these different events because frisbee photos are always the nicest… right? 🙂 I love it when they are on my feed. Green grass, mud and/or jerseys make me very very happy!!
First weekend – Savage Seven (NTU) @ NTU:
This team came about because Gerald wanted to play in this competition with his NDU friends but had no female players so they asked around and tada, here we are!!
Second weekend – Grab Huck Score 2016 (SMU) @ West Coast Park:
AJwolves!! Played our hearts out even though we haven’t trained together for more than a month. Will always always miss you guys because AJ (and y’all) is where my passion for ulti originated 🙂
|Aiyo I know I got no butt but don’t be mean and judge okay? 🙂|
Although I’m not sure if I will ever be able to juggle anything like that again, I know I will ultimately tell myself that it’s going to be worth it, and then sign up anyway. So thankful for the pals I’ve known through ulti and I really really hope everyone I know in ulti are here to stay, whether you’re a coach that I truly respect, seniors that I look up to, or friends that I’ll always love/miss messing around with.
For people who are looking forward to university starting, you should expect VERY busy schedules and because everything is own-time-own-target, you would require an insane amount of self-discipline, which I am still trying to cultivate. Things will definitely be worse if you stay in halls (aka dormitories), so have some mental preparation! As much as I am enjoying and relishing my time in university, it really is just superficial. Here’s to more things to update on in the future – or you can always find (not so fun) updates about my life on my Instagram.
