    Things have been a little too quiet here. Well, the same I can say for my life right now. I am either rushing for my school assignments/tests/readings or working or yoga/jogging. I don’t really have much time left for violin which is rather sad.

    However, I’m happy to be busy and learning new stuff. I realised that the older you get, the more time you have for yourself to learn new stuff because your friends are either busy with their boy/girlfriends or with their families (after they got married or about to get married). It’s kind of sad though but oh well, that’s life. One has to accept the reality of life. Please Login or Register to read the rest of this content.

    Sometimes I wonder the people whom I just met or acquainted are meant to stay for long… And I wonder what is their purpose of entering my life when they fade away. Some are obvious… like reminding myself not to be like that person. Some are not so obvious and I ended up thinking for a longer-than-required time. Ultimately it is my life and I shall live the way I deem fit. Yet, I wish I don’t have to get acquainted with people who are plain jerks – be it relationship or friendship. But I guess their purpose of entering my life is to help me identify jerks and not let such people into my inner circle of friends in future? Oh well, maybe that’s just life.

    I’m back from my business trip at San Francisco. I probably won’t have time to blog about my trip until I am done with graduate school. I have an upcoming makeup test and another assignment due this week. Sigh.

    I wish I am less busy with school work and have more time for myself… Oh well…

    In fact, I have to bring my personal laptop to San Francisco because I have 1 assignment due in the middle of my business trip and I was not able to finish it before my trip. It kind of sucks but oh well. Life as a student with full time job can be sucky at times.

    Hi everyone! I’m back from an unexpected hiatus. Things have gotten so busy and I’m running out of ideas what to blog but thought of updating something here before people thought that I have abandoned the blog. :sad: 

    First of all, Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the year of Dog and may everyone have a paw-fect year ahead! :smile: I spent my first day of CNY at home waiting for my relatives to come and also started on my school assignment. It’s pretty tough and I only finished 1 out of 5 questions in the assignment. Sigh. Machine learning is never easy. :sad: 

    On a happier note, I am nearly done with my packing. Just left with a few essentials that I need to put into my checkin luggage and also pack my hand carry bags. :smile: I’m flying to San Francisco soon, hence I have been busy packing my luggages these days. I’m flying there for work and it’s going to be a really right work schedule and personal schedule (I’m bringing my personal laptop to go there to do my school assignments :sigh: ). I hope I won’t fall sick. :hmm: 

    It’s my final semester in graduate school and whoa, it has been pretty crazy so far. I know it will get worse so gambatte to myself! Changing job on my final school semester has proven to be a lot more challenging than I initially thought. Learning new stuff at work is pretty awesome and exciting but when you have to continue the same energy level (if not higher) at school… Okay, it’s pretty hectic. :sigh: The end is near and I’m looking forward to graduation.

    Gambatte, Sakura!

    Singapore has gotten a heatwave coldwave. We were having non-stop rain for the past 2 days and the temperature has dropped from the usual 28 to 30 degree celsius to 22 to 24 degree celsius. Well, we are not used to such weather and here we have 3 continuous days (and counting) of such low temperatures – by Singapore standard. It really sucks.

    I am getting runny nose due to the weather change as well which seriously sucks. Well, partially because I got school starting from tomorrow. That means my day ends at 830pm on school days. Sigh. “Perks” of a part time student indeed.

    On a happier note, it is my final semester so yay. I am going to get my second degree this coming July and it feels awesome. I feel more educated just by thinking about that. Oops! :smile:

    May Sakura survive another school semester and also the winter in Singapore?!

    I only have 3 days left before my test and I haven’t started studying for it yet. I am still rushing for my thesis though. Well, at least my implementation is completed so I just need to rush my report – which is a lot to write. :sad: I took 2 days of leave from work to really focused on my thesis and test. Hopefully it all works out well…

    Sometimes I ask myself what am I working so hard for… Is it for the knowledge or for my career? Is it for the money or for the prestige? Is it to pass time or to really learn new stuff? Oh well…
