I’M DONE! (And that’s a good thing)

Hello my lovely cat people!

I would like to inform you all that yesterday I have finished my first year at uni!! And what a ride it has been…

I feel like my exams went well (probably because I only had two this time ;P ), still waiting on a few assignments’ results, but hopefully I’ll know soon. 🙂 I feel like I’ve achieved a lot more this semester as well than the first semester at uni. I was definitely more focused on making friends the first few months that I’ve moved in, because it’s hard to make friends in a completely different state, even though it is still the same country.

In terms of friends, I feel like I’ve established several good friendship groups, and I’ve definitely challenged myself to get to know as many people as possible and not hang around the same group of people like I did in college last year. I’m not saying it wasn’t fun hanging out with the same group of friends, because it definitely was, and it still is, since I’m friends with them. But if they weren’t around, I didn’t really have anyone to talk to. So I felt like if I made a lot of connections at uni, that won’t happen. And I definitely didn’t want that to happen in a new state.

In terms of my study in general, I feel like I’ve improved with my time management so much this semester, and I’ve definitely had a lot of motivation to keep studying and doing my best. This is what comes from choosing the subjects/courses you really feel passionate about. So definitely DEFINITELY do that if/when you’re going to uni.

And I’ve most definitely learnt a tonne about how to take care of myself. I’ve become a lot more independent, and am feeling a lot more confident than I did about living alone (without my parents or a roommate).

In short, I’m definitely excited for next year, but I am also looking forward to a much needed break for now. 🙂

In terms of blog posts, I’ll try and be somewhat regular, but won’t make any promises. I’ll definitely aim to be a lot more active than I was the past couple of months. Hope that is okay with you all. :3

I am so happy to have all this time freed up though. Who knows what I might post about soon..? 😉

I love you all~! ❤

MEOW! =^.^=

Yo…

Hello my lovely cat people!

So, I won’t be finishing the A-Z Challenge for the first time in 3 years (I know, right?). Several reasons for that: I felt like I had to keep posting, even though I didn’t necessarily want to (eg. I had to keep coming up with ideas and writing posts I wasn’t really happy with); I didn’t feel like you guys were enjoying the posts also; plus the challenge has run its course for me, I think.

A few things coming up: might post some short stories soon, or I might find another challenge to do. Either way, I think this challenge is finished for me. For anyone wishing for me to complete the challenge, I am sorry if you were continuously reading my posts = but it became super tiring for me.

I love you all~! ❤

MEOW! =^.^=

R is for Readings

Hello my lovely cat people!

Now, this post isn’t what you think. This is more me providing you with another little update on my university life.

Now, in case you don’t know, for your courses at university, you get assigned specific readings that you have to do either every week or every couple of weeks, depending on what courses you do. And you have either lectures, in which something like 200+ people sit in a lecture hall at one time to listen to the course content. Or you have tutorials, where, in groups of about 25 people or so, you break down this lecture content and do most of your assessed work. And your readings would most likely be a part of your tutorial rather than your lecture classes.

Most of the time, readings are pretty boring and can get repetitive. Although if you enjoy the subject, it could be less tedious. Then your tutors would usually assess the readings in class, either by asking you a question during that time, or by making you write a response based on those readings.

So yeah, I’ve been doing a few of those lately. And they kinda suck. But you do learn a lot from them, and it’s probably the easiest to prepare for these, too. 😛 So, my advice, start readings early and actually pay attention to them, because more often than not, you’re going to be asked something about them in class.

I love you all~! ❤

MEOW! =^.^=

Sorry guys, studying hard…

Hello my lovely cat people!

Won’t be properly posting for today or catching up on yesterday’s post – have to do some serious studying before tomorrow. So, expect a whole bunch of posts tomorrow, and apologies to anyone looking forward to these. 😦

I love you all~! ❤

L is of Latte Obsessions

Hello my lovely cat people!

Okay, real talk. I’ve been addicted to chai lattes at one of the local university cafes here on the mainland. It’s actually crazy how big my obsession with this drink has gotten. And yes, I’m aware that for some coffee addicts, chai latte isn’t considered ‘real coffee’, and I completely understand that, since the drink doesn’t have any actual caffeine and contains mostly sugar. BUT, it satisfies my “caffeine-high” quite nicely, so I always end up going for more.

But goddamn guys, chai latte is the real deal. It’s not the cheapest of drinks, but it’s still more affordable than Starbucks Coffee. XD (which is a shame, because I am yet to try an actual coffee instead of a frappucino at that place :P)

And I swear to god, every time I go to the store and order the drink, as well as some kind of pastry thing (which, for most of the time, is the same thing), the workers there know me and have seen me before, but it’s like they don’t know me at the same time? They kind of take my order as if I never ordered these two combinations of food and drink before. Maybe it’s just me, but it’s a little weird. XD As someone who’s worked a hospitality job before, if I see people who come in regularly, I either try and remember their order (in a friendly way, of course, not in a way that would drive the customer away from the place), or I start up a little conversation with them. It’s just what I’m used to, but I completely understand if people don’t do that here – it’s a completely different business, or maybe the workers just have other things to think about, like serving next people in line and not wasting time on friendly chatter. (We’ve all been there, I know the struggle. 😛 It’s especially difficult when you get a super nice customer who starts chatting to you and you have to kindly push them along because the line behind them is so long. XD)

Okay, this random post about lattes that aren’t even lattes has dragged on for far too long. 😛 But I do still hope you enjoyed my rambling on about a drink I have almost every day.

I love you all~! ❤

MEOW! =^.^=

P.S. Speaking of drinks, I got a free one from a bubble tea place from my university today too! It’s especially good when you don’t have much money to last you for the week and need that sugar kick to push you along for your studies. ;P

K is for Kill Me…

Hello my lovely cat people!

No, don’t really kill me (unless you’re here about the late posting issue–why am I even apologizing? It’s become a common occurrence. XD).

But, it’s that time of the semester again where I skip a bit of blogging time, and make room for some serious studying. Because assignments, quizzes, and essays start rolling in like dice at a casino. (Was that a terrible analogy to use? I’m sorry. :P)

Anywho, yes, I’m going to be doing a bunch of those mentioned above in the next few weeks, so I may not make it sometimes to the blogging world. But fear not, friends, I will return when I do not post for the A-Z Challenge. And after that, who knows what the future holds! But I’ll try and keep posts coming in on a sort of regular basis. So, no posts every day, but no absences for a month either. 😛

Hope you enjoy this little update crazy post. I know I’ve been doing a lot of those lately, but I’m pretty busy during the week even with my two days off, so I usually come home super tired and not in the mood for too much blogging – I do apologize. So I hope this format of update-y/music tastes has been keeping your brains and eyes busy whilst I study up on some Psychology and Japanese for these coming weeks. Enjoy yourselves everyone!

I love you all~! ❤

MEOW! =^.^=

I is for ‘If You Leave’

Hello my wonderful cat people!

Again, apologies for my absence, I’ve been very busy the last couple of days and was too exhausted to post anything exciting.

But either way, here’s another review of an album by an artist called Daughter. This artist has been my favourite for a while and I’ve listened to this album plenty of times. It’s a very nice album to listsen to when you want to relax and read a book, or take a bath for an hour or so. ;P

Some of my favourite songs are Youth and Human. I’ve also tried playing Youth on guitar and I really like the way it sounds. :3 Either way, the album is very pleasant and the artist’s voice is surreal. Do give the songs or the album a listen – definitely worth it. 🙂

I love you all~! ❤

MEOW! =^.^=
