A number of posts back I was writing about the “Next Semester“… and now the semester’s coming to an end.
I’ve reached the final week of BA with 1 more report to go and a dissertation to complete in the next one and a half months. I’m excited that the semester’s coming to an end, but even more so, I’m excited that its going to end with a bang!
To say that this is my most eventful semester wouldn’t have been too far off. I’ve been getting away from the school way more than I ever did in previous semesters and stumbled upon several pleasant discoveries. As usual, there were the sleepless deadline weeks followed by drinking sessions. And out of oblivion came the infatuation, the disappointment and heartaches.
But thats all in the past… I’m thrilled to see the semester ending on a high note which would have not been possible without Jie. Never would I think of finding a best friend whom I could share my heart out to in Switzerland, whatmore a sister? I may not have found a partner, but knowing Jie in return is way more than I could ever hope for.
I talked about my grandma, the memories of flying home in First Year, of watching her go. I’ve NEVER been so blatantly open to anyone about this, fearing that all I get for pouring my heartfelt thoughts out would only result in patronizing replies or sympathetic faces… but Jie understood. Jie’s acceptance for who I am has been such an encouragement allowing me to truly be me and acting the way I would in front of my closest family members.
Jie’s graduating next Saturday, and I’m hoping You would EXCEED her expectations…
I’ll be leaving the school by the end of the week and moving to my new home for the remaining days in Swiss. I’m looking forward to sipping afternoon tea with Sam and the Queen on the 11th and finally returning for good on the 15th a month later.
This season’s ending with a bang and I can’t wait for the next to begin – in Singapore.
Jie wondered how we’d be like when we both grow up…
while I can’t predict the future, I know she will always be my Jie.
