If you are tired of reading things about the new year, this would probably be a good time to leave. But then again I am not about to go into some big-ass resolution making mode, partly because there isn’t much sense in making any resolution simply for the sake of making resolutions.
Last year I wrapped things up for 2010 to welcome the new year of 2011. Similarly, this year I would wrap up my experiences in 2011 and give closure to this long year which some would claim to be the worse year of their lives while others loved their time in 2011.
In 2011, I graduated from the National University of Singapore with a First Class Hons degree. It went well despite my really bad experience for my FYP. Till now I still feel sick in the stomach as I remember my FYP days. Thinking back it was rather risky of me to do the things I did, and I might have lost my First Class should things go any lousier.
In 2011, I applied for different types of jobs from RSAF, DSTA and also CSIT. I sat for my first 1 hour plus interview in CSIT with 3 interviewers and actually enjoyed my time discussing on my NS experiences and how I thought about the different lessons in them. 2011 saw me deciding on a career choice and embarking on it.
2011 saw me getting attached to a wonderful girl through a series of events. How I was initially introduced to a different girl and then my current girlfriend kept bugging me to see how things progress until in the end we got together instead. My life has been very different with her around; just the last few weeks we celebrated Christmas countdown and New Year’s Day countdown together.
In 2011 I began my career in the RSAF on the 6th of July, and I am currently less than 4 months away from finishing my course before being posted to the base to do some real work. There are many things that I have learnt along the way which seemed very interesting and I hope I will enjoy my job as days go by.
This is also probably the first time that I am sick through the crossing of year 2011 to 2012. There’s this bug going around in my workplace, and many of us have flu and cough. In such a confined space with not much ventilation, it is not surprising that this is a common problem among everyone.
It is now 2012 and a whole new life begins for some people who have chosen to do a reset of their lives. For me I will just continue to live my life the way I want to, and I hope as time goes by, I can look backwards and connect the dots. Happy New Year!
