Letting It All Sink In

2012-07-20 02:44

I missed writing a blog post for last week. I should apologize because I really don't remember why I was unable to. Gosh, my memory is getting all jumbled up because I've been on holiday for so long I don't even know what happened in the past week or so. @A@

I've got to say that this past month or so has been one hectic one. I've been dealing with getting my HK A-Level results, university applications and trying to find a summer job that allows me to have a balance of experience plus free time to actually enjoy my vacation. Basically, I've been preparing documents for applications, going to interviews and attending talks (mostly for university stuff because I haven't been able to find a job I can apply for yet). I applied for an online internship a while back and didn't get it. Now, I'm probably going to be applying for an internship at a local English website, so I'm currently fixing up my CV and cover letter. Just a lot of paperwork.

You know that point in time when you think you'll never have to deal with adult stuff or ever reach that adult age? I used to sort of think that way as a little kid and now that I've reached this point in my life, where I have to start writing up my own professional-looking letters, profiles and whatnot, it's a little surreal. Considering that I was originally supposed to study in the Philippines for my tertiary education and that it's really hard to get a place in university here in Hong Kong, it's even more surreal that I'll be able to continue my education in this city. I'm still trying to let this all sink in... I will be in university, taking a Bachelor degree course starting late-September...

It's really freaky being in the adolescent stage of your life, being in between your adult self and your "omg-i-don't-wanna-grow-up" self. It's this mid-point where you don't exactly know how you should act or react to things. In the end, you realize that time will not stop for you and that you ARE actually growing up, and like it or not you're going to have to act more and more mature as you progress in this world.

    Yeah, I know exactly how you feel; between uni applications, personal statements, exam resits and keeping up with school work, it feels like the whole world is passing by you like you're sitting on a train.

    Ahh I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this.
